The world needs to end the act of racism and stop using the words that are insulting to other people. Words are power that a heart can be mended or broken. Make a threat of an action and watch how people suffer just because those words were spoken. We must fight to stop the racism from all over the world to create a peaceful planet where everybody can smile and talk to each other no matter what race you are and what skin colors you have.
