Today I will talk about a disease that really scares me. It is the disease that creates a border between the citizens of the world. A disease that has caused wars and the deaths of many people all over the world. I’m talking about the disease that can affect each and every one of us and destroy our world really easily. The disease I’m talking about has a name everybody knows, Racism
I think that racism is caused by the fear of new things, different cultures and the aim to keep one’s traditional values held high. Racism has spread all over the world and the numbers of racists is growing at a rapid rate because of the refugee crisis. People are scared of the refugees taking over their country, stealing their goods or raping their wives and daughters. This is the reason why Radical right-wing parties like the FPÖ in Austria or the AFD in Germany are gaining more and more power. They will continue gaining more and more power until the refugees are treated equally and are distributed equally throughout the countries in Europe.
But what can we do to stop this weird disease called racism? I think that you should help the refugees, listen to their stories and make them feel welcome. You should help them integrate into our society. If we help them now, they might be able to help us in the future. I think that a child should be raised to not see a difference between black or white because peoples’ differences should be seen through their actions and not in the colour of their skin, their religion or their beliefs.
