Our society may never become colorblind as a whole. Truth is you can not control the actions and thoughts of others. Without outside influences we would remain colorblind from the moment that we enter the world. We are taught different stereotypes about different races from family, friends, and media. Many times this eliminates any remnants of colorblindness that we may have once possessed. It saddens me that we allow these stereotypes to affect our actions towards one another. Even more that these feelings towards one another sometimes end in unnecessary death. Unfortunately, there will never be "justice for all" until we all unite as one. Many times we only become united due to a tragedy. We are definitely not where we used to be, but we do have a long road ahead of us. Nevertheless, do not let injustice discourage you. If you let hate rise within you, the battle has been lost. I want justice for all, no matter what your race is.

Are you one of those individuals who support causes without researching them first? When you support causes what are you actively doing to influence change? It really bothers me when people are quick to jump on the bandwagon just because something is popular at the time. If you were truly passionate about an cause, you don't need anyone's approval the get the movement started or to spread the awareness. Oh, you may say I wasn't aware of the situation. You can make yourself aware with similar situations that you are faced with day in and day out. However, you may not receive the same recognition. I think people feel that they have to be a part of something big. If it is not being recognized publicly, then we don't want anything to do with it. Even though I have a good heart, I am learning to research things first so that I will know exactly what I am supporting. If you only take someone's word for a cause that you are supporting, you are making a fool of yourself. Don't allow ignorance to make you a victim of something that you could have easily avoided. You will make time to research things that are truly important to you. If you don't have time to research it, then you don't have time to support it. Know what you are supporting, why you choose to support it, and then spread the awareness!!!!!
