The issue of racism has been ongoing in the world for several decades and some nations have tried to curb these actions against people of color. In the old days, black people had to live their lives in major restrictions and prejudice because they were perceived as second class citizens.

However, in recent years, more people have become open to the fact that there should be no discrimination between blacks and whites. Many government leaders fought against racism during their tenure, to lead a better future for black people.

Speaking about curbing racism in the world, America and many other countries have not been able to fully implement this law. In recent years, black folks have been exposed to battering and killing by white cops, on the street. Many black people have lost their lives at the hands of white law enforcers and this has done more harm than good in the country.

Several black celebrities have used their platforms to speak against racism as they have in one way or the other experienced it and know it to be an unpleasant experience.
