Let Us Be Free

By Ashley Stillion
Civil War Reporter

I believe that African American have the right to their freedom just as any other human being does. They do not deserve to be treated unequaly or unfairly. The north needs to tell the south that America is a place for everybody and it is not right to discriminate against those whose appearances are unlike others. America would be alot better place if people would not misjudge or be prejudice against African Americans. God made all of us just the same whether our physical appearances are different then others no matter what we all are one. Everyone deserves respect as long as they show it. An African American can be one of the kindest people you've ever met on the inside and just because they look different on the outside they get treated terrible and not with respect. They shouldn't be slaves and they shouldn't be treated so unfairly.
