She is just some white girl

Racism goes all sorts of ways. My race shouldn’t define everything about me, and definitely shouldn’t generalize me as a person. My race shouldn’t decide how I get treated in public or how much I get paid. My race should not put me above or below anyone, and it should not make me feel uncomfortable. So why does it? Why does our society still condone these absurd types of judgements? How can you judge someone so quickly based on just simply even the color of their skin? Race is senseless.
