Racism Colton Moores

These two images, both made by Photographer Ramiro Salazar and CG artist David Vargas, are very impactful. Throughout history, racism has been and still is heavily influential on the people and citizens it surrounds. Throughout history, governments have ignored human and civil rights, it has payed little attention to its people creating customs, etiquette, and racial caste systems that denied human dignity making segregation a major problem to this day.These photos are both great examples of why racism shouldn't be a problem.

One of these photos show hands being held in a romantic or caring state while the other shows two hands locking in showing strength and coming together, both of which are skin colours of black and white. Not only do they represent two races coming together, but also demonstrates what is beneath both colours of skin, that being the same muscles, veins, phalanges and tendons. Luckily for me, I never lived with racists. I grew up in a family that supports all races and sexuality which obviously impacted my personal beliefs. Racism isn't just about the colour of your skin, but also your beliefs, religions, culture, and at the end of the day, we are all human, inside and out.

Like the photos suggest, we should all come together as one. since the beginning of the human race, racism has always been a factor of society and I am actually amazed that racism hasn't diminished yet. We are always evolving, but racism is never changing, and if racism isn't changing, than the people and surrounding societies in which racism plays, will remain in solitude. Photos and art like these are here to open minds, present to visually show the people why racism should change, that if racism were to just, vanish, we wouldn't be so afraid.
