"Racism still exists. We should be doing something about it- that’s not necessarily about changing laws but more about changing yourself, your own perspective. But I understand that it’s difficult to understand what it feels like to be undermined discrimination. It’s difficult to understand that if you haven’t experienced it in your own life. It’s much easier to understand how others feel when others are being discriminated against when you’ve been discriminated against yourself. People just need to be nice to each other and more understanding."
