What literature has taught me about the effects of racism

Racism has affected so many people in this world. Just because you’re black, asian, Muslim or anything for that matter, you don’t deserve any form of racism. For example, in Indian Horse, Saul was taken to a dirty residential school where kids were tormented by nuns and priest and he went solely because he is Indian. At these so called schools he started off by getting scrubbed hard by the nuns because they wanted to get the ‘dirt’ off even though the nuns knew that it was his skin colour. He was beaten if he made a mistake in class and out of class. He was sexually, physically, and mentally abused by the nuns and priest just because he is Indian. He tried to forget all that by playing hockey but he couldn’t escape it. The crowd and other teams called him names. He soon had enough of it and he quit playing. Racism can effect someone’s favourite thing to do just because of the hatred. Racism can effect anything and it has to stop.
