Racism still exist till this day. On February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida Trayvon Martin was shot and killed not because he was committing some type of crime but because he had a hood on and just looked suspicious. In the 1800's Caucasian people believed that we were a threat to them and they treated African Americans how ever they wanted to just because of the way they looked. We should all care about this because this country is still divided even though we don't have to be. There should be no separation between us because the color of our skin or how we look. Racism doesn't happen just over African Americans but it also happens over Asians, Muslims, Hispanics, etc. Hopefully people will start seeing us for who we are and not for how we look.
