We live in a country where there are many kinds of people. All of them should be treated equally, fairly and justly. Some people are repeatedly treated unfairly and unjustly. It’s okay to be sad, confused, and even angry about that. When you see someone being treated unfairly, it’s good to express how that makes you feel. It’s also good to listen to how being harmed makes other people feel too. And, when you’re ready, it’s good to do something to help create a change.
