In my opinion, the biggest issue facing the new generation is racial inequality. Oppression of a certain group of people is the only way another group can survive or it is a way express the rejection of a foreign entity. synonymously to Darwinism. Having been the target of bullying, I know from experience that my race was a factor. I was one of the few Chinese people in a school of 1,000 and this foreign identity was not welcomed into the heavily Filipino, Samoan, Tongan and Mexican ethnicity school. I believe that society has become more diverse, however, what needs to be worked on is the accepting of others. What I have experienced is probably nothing compared to the hatred seen outside of the United States.
Many of my Muslim friends have dealt with racial discrimination for their usage of a hijab. What I believe society has come to believe is that the use of hijab is equivalent to being a terrorist and looked upon differently. Although what I've witnessed did not have any physical effect on anyone, the mental effect is just as detrimental and can lower a person's view on life. A song that I enjoy dealing with racism is Common and Will.I.Am.'s song I Have A Dream
