Rise Above it all and Stand up



There’s certain cultures that are so full of togetherness. If one needs assistance then a whole group comes in for support. That’s how it should be. In fact “we” all should be like that. Come to the aid of another. Standing up for what’s right and knowing our rights. If we stand together then there would be less discrimination against certain races or circumstances. We can not pretend that sterotyping and profiling doesn’t exist.

Minorities are the main targets when it comes to rights being violated. We should read and stay up to date on social issues. The media may report some things that many may consider negative but they also can help spread the word. For instance, the Trayvon Martin’s case, the case received national attention because of the media. We became more aware of profiling and the media can also help settle some things down.

There’s all sorts of organizations that assist minorities with all sorts of needs. One Organization which was founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton and it’s called the NAN (National Action Network). Partner Organizations is an organization that advocates for youth. Lets be real here. A lot of the targeting is projecting towards African American youth and they too should know their rights.

If minorities work together and assist one another then we will have stronger communitues. We’re challenged so that we can take a stand “rise up.” We never know how many lives can be saved by coming forward and speaking out about issues. Even the sensitive issues need some attention. “Unification” is what is needed. Some changes need to be made and we can do a lot with continued knowledge.

We’re strong and we should be connected. Another great resource is Social Media. So many are taking social issues to networking sites. It’s alright for us to speak about things that make us feel uncomfortable. We’ve seen and heard about many issues that affect other cultures and there’s a lot that affect minorities. “Stand up and Overcome.”
