I am not racist.

Aubie Hartman,
Sioux City, IA

I chose these six words because I think that a lot of people see white people as racist. I am not only white but I also live in the midwest. I had a teacher who moved to my hometown from a big city. When this teacher came they always tried “opening our eyes” to racism. I always felt like he thought we were all racist because we were all white and come from the midwest. I shouldn’t be assumed I am racist just because I come from where I have grown up or my own race.
