Being Racist is Okay

When you look back through American history you see that the country has come a long was from the racism of the past… right? False. I realize that this is not about Canada, but the majority of Canadian media is influenced by American media. In media, such as movies, the way that young children are often encouraged to be successful is that they are told “You can be anything you put your mind to! Like the President!” I personally know a lot of Canadian children who were convinced they could be the President if they worked hard enough in school. Being the president has been viewed as the ultimate position of leadership, and America is one of the most influential countries in the world. In most recent years the amount of children with access to media has gone up drastically and children as young as 4 have complete access to iPad’s and google. Just in time to watch a babbling, uncensored, CHILD become the President of the United States and showing kids that as long as you have enough money and power you CAN say whatever you want to say, and being sensitive to other cultures and religions and races is completely unnecessary.
