I have just watched the news and it seems that racism and negative attitudes are prevailing in many parts of the world. People hate the ones who are different from them.
Right now in the USA there are white people who showed that they have not learnt the lesson from the past. They believe in a society which discriminates the black people....... meanwhile we are living in the XXI century.
It is the old past that is not forgotten and that makes America a modern country full of contradictions.
Racism is still in the mind of many citizens because they are afraid of the others . This is also true for many European people who are against foreign people who are arriving from lands where they lived the experience of wars and also hate.
I really liked to find President Obama twitting and reminding us that we are not born hating another person:
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." pic.twitter.com/InZ58zkoAm— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) 13 agosto 2017
The poem by Langston Hughes should remind many people living in the USA that we are not living in the XIX century now, people have the same rights and there should not be any discrimination for people who are living in the globalized world. The color of the skin and religion do not matter, what really matters is to be friends.
