Miami Campus Finalist
My name is Rosemay, I am 30 years old, I am a mother of two young babies (3 and 1 years old). As an African American, there are several things which were happening in our community or society which impact our lives and make us think about it. Actually the racial problem is almost in all front pages of journal, TV news, and internet network. We black people in America think and it is a fact that we are treated unequally compared to white race or other races. For instance, I saw a video into social network a young black teenager was not allowed to a restaurant because he wore short pants while a white teenager wore short pants too was allowed. As a parent that makes me so sad and I think we all should have the same privilege, no matter the color of our skin, no matter where we come from or how wealthy we are. I am committed to fighting social injustice peacefully, I commit to involving in my community activities to help to change the behavior of some people who still think that some races are inferior compared to others. I want my son and daughter to be judged by their capacity, their knowledge rather than the color of their skin or their racial ethnicity. I hope we all feel free to benefit the American dream.
