Racism runs light, medium, and dark

Tori Carter,
Sioux City, IA

My name is Tori, and I am a senior at North High School. I am dual-enrolled at Western Iowa Tech Community College. I was assigned to create a race card, and this project got me thinking. When you hear the word “racism”, you think of slavery, internment camps, or the Ku Klux Clan, all committed by Caucasians. Although, who considers the hatred modern-day Americans face because of their ancestors’ past? Racism has no color.
