Portland high school students walk out, say they’re fed up with lackluster responses to racist incidents

It doesn’t usually happen.. and the reason is because there are more white people in America than there are any other ethnic group. It’s changing, but it’s still there. It was just an example as well.people don’t like those comparisons, probably because they aren’t that prominent in western countries, and it sounds like a weak thing to say, but I believe in order to see a situation clearly you have to look at it from both sides. Equality is treating everyone the same. I don’t think it’s right to allow one group something that you deny to another, so I thought it important to imagine the article from the opposite prospective. And in that regard, it sounds bad. So if it’s bad for one group to say, it’s bad for the other. That was my thinking.
