Skin color does not determine worth

I chose these six words because I feel like this idea gets lost in our society these days. With all of the current events surrounding race such as police brutality, treatment in prisons, and much more that can create this feeling in society that your skin color determines how much you are worth. Yes, today and in the past it has decided a lot of things such as where you live that still exist today, but it does not determine worth. I chose these words to try and reaffirm that idea that the color of your skin is not equal to what you mean in society. No matter what a persons skin color is deep down we are all the same.
