Let me ask you a question. Do you think there is inequality in this world? What things do you think needs to be changed? What do you think needs to be improved? How many things are unequal in this world. It is up to you to make a change. It is up to you to change the world. It is up to you to fight the injustices. It won't happen overnight. But we can take do it, one person at a time. The future lies ahead. It is up to us...
You may not realize this but there is beauty bias. Did you know that ugly people are less likely to get the job, less likely to make as money, less likely to that raise, less likely to not get that ticket from the police officer, the list goes on and on. We as a society have gotten so brainwashed on what beautiful and ugly is. Let me ask you this question, define beautiful? Define ugly? Exactly...
Autistic people are different. Now I know because I have autism. Now I know that I'm very light on the autistic scale, but I still face some challenges in life that the norm doesn't have. I have some good traits about it, but it also has its cons. When I was 2 my parent had figured out that I had autism. My parents couldn't bear the fact that I wouldn't have the opportunities that most people do. So I went through 5-6 years of tutoring, 5 days a week, for 6 hours. I had to work harder than most kids at learning things. It took me hours to learn what kids would learn in minutes. But I still put forth the effort and got it done. The tutoring also taught me how to deal with stress, handling things under pressure, figuring shit out, etc. I am so thankful that my parents and grandparents put all the time, money, and effort just to be where I am today. If they hadn't done anything I would be enrolled in a special ed course, I wouldn't be talking, I would kinda be in trouble that put it that way. Now growing up in elementary school, I know how it feels to be put out of the box. The article I read was about these autistic kids beat up and picked on just because they were born different. They didn't have the option to have autism, yet they're getting it even worse because of ignorant people bullying them just for being different. This makes me so angry and this is just another step in why we're failing at humanity.
There is racial discrimination in this world, still out there in 2017. Yes, most people in the United States believe in racial equality. But there are the racist ass holes out there who tend to be close-minded and who tend to get after those with darker skin, because in the U.S. whites are the majority of the population.
Tolerance is highly lacking in this world. That song and that story gave a great example on lacking tolerance. We're also ignorant to those who are different. We should all celebrate each others differences and come together
The story I’m relating to is All Summer In A Day. This story shows how kids can be mean and cruel to one another. And the people who are different are sometimes the ones that are treated the worst of all. I’m relating this story to the lyrics of a song called Witch Hunt by Rush. The song is about a group of people that are in the“norm” that are quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand, and ignorant towards the people who are “different” and the people who don’t follow the expectations to be part of the norm. It comes from fear and hate, that causes people to treat the people who are “different” badly or the worst of all. Fear and hate also comes from people trying to make others feel bad to make you feel good. How the kids treated Margo was very similar to how the people acted in the song lyrics “Which Hunt”. The kids not only bullied Margo, but they bullied her for being quiet. That made her different because the all the other kids were happy and talkative. Also where the kids live Venus it always rained, except every 7 years the sun came out and it stopped raining. Margo said the claim to the other kids, but they didn’t believe her so they locked her inside the closet until the sun actually came out. That there is the called ignorance and fear, like in the Rush song Witch Hunt.
