Racism Isn't History After All

February.

An entire month dedicated to black history.
Children learn about how life “used to be”
We think of racial discrimination as old news.
Truth is, racism is still very much alive.

Human beings should know human decency.
What defines us is our humanity.
We are all one human race.
We all live on this planet.

The basic principle of freedom
includes freedom from discrimination.

February is almost over, and this is the first news article I have seen about Black History Month.  Carpe diem, a poem about freedom.
