Racism, Sexism, And Prejudices This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Sandra R., Brooklyn, NY

   "I have a dream that one day my four little children will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

He had a dream but it hasn't come true yet. Twenty-five years later, that dream is still the purpose of those who restlessly fight against racism and prejudice, those who fight for equality and respect for each other, who believe in love, and who have faith in the human spirit.

It seems unreal to me that there are still people who consider themselves powerful enough to judge human beings by the color of their skin or their background. These people ignore the fact that the most important values are inside and have nothing to do with color or physical features, are still in positions of influence, and this saddens me.
