Don’t worry about what you can’t change  
I just thought of something. My brother and I were discussing the surge of media coverage of hate crimes, typically involving black wo/men and white wo/men, with the victim almost always black. We realized that these types of cases have been happening for many years. It is just more publicized. What is the media’s intention by doing this? Making us more aware so we can fight it? How can we fight it? By talking to the racist/sexists/everythingist by educating them on how ridiculous, appalling and vicious is?
No matter how many people you educate, there will always be the KKK.

No matter what we do there will always be a way to categorize people. There’s even hate amongst people within the SAME race. The SAME sex. There’s social class! Wars about religion! If we were all the same, we’d always find something to hate someone about because we’re still in a primitive mindset of survival of the fittest. This time we subconsciously perceive that the only way we can survive is to stomp your opponents, or anyone who is not like you. The only way we can fight racism is just be kind (rid of your selfishness, ego, and insecurities) and move on. Accepting that there will ALWAYS be some type of hate.

But if we remove our ego, selfishness, insecurities — will there be? We are infinitely greater than the labels we use to define ourselves. Evolve as a race of people of the world.
