How can you as an individual actively take part in fighting a system of oppression and standing in solidarity with your peers of color to amplify their voices?
We are all human beings, we only differ by characters. I think that if we all propose to work actively and promote acts and protests of non-discrimination and denounce each case, we will eradicate racism.

We all live in this world, in the same society, we should not be so selfish and close circles.

Definitely not to set limits, to trust in themselves, in everything they propose, to turn their dreams into goals, that if things are done with passion, the results will surprise you.
