We clearly have a problem in our society. The constant remainders of America’s past racism endure a formidable challenge to our dream for a community that lives out its most endeared principles — freedom and justice for all. Although, there are continued events, which stir racial tensions that reminds us that prejudice and malevolence still intensify. However distrust creeps under the surface of many interactions.

They’re symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal-justice system.”
Expressing our voice about the racial divide
It’s pretty evident there are people adamantly on both sides of this racial argument intensifying and impending larger under the social atomic of enraged protests and counter arguments. The prospective ways to deal with the matter of contention that one side knows as discrimination through deeply impacted prejudice and the other side holds as lawful duty — these suggested answers continue to keep us divided in this war. The end of racial divide is not going to come easy.
The hurdle to determination
The barrier to constancy is that as an American society we are dealing with the chain reactions when we need to deal with the source of the problem. As an American society we are so focused on spreading hate, unleashing anger and retribution when we need to come together as a whole and focus on accepting one another for our characters and not the content of our skin color. Half of our society is discussing about the focal point of the matter: What is the bottom-line cause of it?
Working as a society to heal the racial divide
According to an article titled, ‘Healing the racial divide –-what will it take?’ by Sr. Brenda Walsh, the first step to healing the racial divide of our society is denouncing and dismantling racism in a holistic way and working together with others to create a community that is whole, inclusive and just. The second step in healing our society of the racial divide. #News #Obama #Crime
