Frankly, everything looks quite good on paper. A 10 – year old girl plans her perfect wedding on the back of her notebook only to realize it’s too fancy for her family. A 16 – year old mustered his courage to confess what he felt on a piece of paper, but got beaten up in the school’s backyard.

The fight is to attain race equality; not to topple the white supremacy to make room for a black one. That would be just replacing one injustice with another. As we fight all the injustice in the world, we may have just forgotten that.

We all can agree that our elders are more experienced than us. But is that enough to let them consider themselves as ‘Mr./Mrs. Know-It-Alls’? Is that enough to make them look down upon our struggles? I think it’s high time they listen to our words.
