Conditions of Use
Well, being African American it was sad to see how the children were treated. I had no idea how much hate people could have. I know that I would have never had the courage to what they did. I would have gone back to my original school after the first day because of the discrimination that the children were introduced to. I feel like I am very lucky to be a part of this generation where there isn’t as much hate. I know that racism is taught. You are not born to hate, in those days kids were so influenced by what they see their parents doing. Although you should carry on with your family’s religious beliefs, hate should not be passed on. Today we see these stories and cannot believe what kind of discrimination and hate is within people and now that everything is mixed, one person and their life isn’t more important that another’s. In Mr. Howards TCAP class we talked about the many kinds of discrimination that we have today and one of the main topics was special needs people. They are some of the most discriminated people in this generation. Racism towards black obviously still remains today and because things like this gets passed down from generation to generation it will probably always be around. I know that last year I got a racist letter through my locker and it really opened my eyes to how we need to except each other for how we are and know that just because you hurt someone verbally that it just makes them stronger and more knowledgeable.

Gian-Luc Jordan, we all miss you so much. Always in the hall, I always heard “hey look, its Gian-Luc.” Everyone in the hall turns and looks & what do you see? Gian-Luc with a big smile on his face. His smile always shined like the sun. I always saw him with his friends laughing, smiling, laughing, anything you could think of. His family dearly loved him. He had a big sister and little siblings. I thought Luca was pretty cool and super nice. He was one of my friends, even though I didn’t get to talk to him much. He had SO much energy around his friends. I always think of him and pray for his family. You were loved so much. I miss you so much Luca.
