Tells it how it is
Hey, I was looking around the intenet the other day and came across this statement. I thought it was amazing and so true. What do you think?
"Nobody tells Latino kids in the highscool that nobody cares is they're Hispanic so long as they keep it to themselves. Jewish kids arent told that they are sinners and that tey could change into Christians if they wanted. People don't tell black kids they should put up with racism because they've come so far from when they were slaves. They don't have to defend why there is a black history month, or why people want black studies in the curriculum. People don't say 'That's so Korean' when they mean something is stupid or weird. People don't tell disabled kids that the community isn't ready to defend their equal rights and inclusion yet. You never hear anyone argue that breast cancer is God's way of killing off women, or that it's a good thing. If a teacher hears anyone use a slang insult for a Chinease kid, they jump on it. When a foreign exchange student asks a teacher about dating, they aren't sent to see the guidance councellor.
But everday at highschool, I hear its okay that I'm gay as long as I stay in the closet and that I'm an abomination against God, that I could change if I wanted to. I'm told that pople like me shouldn't be taught about in school. I'm told that I should be satisfied because our shool is far better then it used to be, and that I shouldn't push for my equal rights and inclusion because the community isn't ready yet. Everday, I hear 'That's so gay!' and I hear AIDS is my punishment for being who I am. Everyday, I hear the word faggot.
It's hard not to walk around angry all the time."
