Just call me a human being

Lily Campbell,

I am a Freshman in Highschool, and for the past month, my religious studies teacher has been teaching us what the meaning of race is. Race is a category that humans have created to tell each other apart from one another, but we are all apart of one race, the human race. We shouldn’t be placed into categories based on the color of our skin, everyone should be treated equally, and in the 21st century, we should not have to be fighting to gain this equality. No one deserves to be shown such disrespect and inequality based on what they look like or their “race.” There is no such thing as race; there is only humanity alone, for we are all human.
