Why Prejudice Still Lives

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) I am a African American who was born in Mississippi. I have encountered various types of racism. One thing I have learned is that it's all in how you were raised. I get criticized because I am married to a white woman and have mixed children.

I have come to find out that there are more blacks prejudice than whites. For some reason, blacks believe that whites owe them something for bringing them here! But I say Thank You! Without the white man bringing our ancestors to America, I would not be able to own my own house website, or business.

When people talk about cops killing blacks, I turn the other cheek. Due to the fact that I feel cops are afraid of blacks just as blacks are afraid of cops. We are almost in a civil war, not because of whats going on, but how the media portrays it. Why is it than when a black person get shot by a cop it's blasted all over the media? But when the same thing happens to a white person, you hear nothing.

I'm not taking any sides, just giving my 2 cents on the matter.
