I recalled this experience when in class one day; we discussed a story about a white man slapping a one year old African American boy on a plane. The baby was crying because of the jerking on the plane and the white man looked at the mother and child in disgust and whispered a racial slur in the mother’s ear. After that, he smacked the baby in his face. The smack in the face resulted in a couple of marks and bruises. That man was arrested and charged which would result in 8 months of imprisonment (Beasley, 2014).

He discriminated against a child and his bigot attitude and his feeling of entitlement, in my opinion, led him to react the way that he did. Why do situations like the example that I presented to you still occurs in this beautiful country? I grew up believing that this is the country of freedom and equality. The United States portrays itself as the country that accepts anyone whether they are black, brown, yellow, one legged, or gay; however, the American people proved that theory wrong with all of the racism and discrimination in the US.

It proved that nihilism greatly impacts that minds of people. The same thing that happened the day before happened to the other group of kids when they were told that they were better than the other group. Ultimately, the System of Works Cited Bassett, l.
