After my last post, i've received a few encouraging messages from friends and even people i do not know who were victims of racism and discrimination.

Just as i put my phone away, i noticed there were two girls sitting in front of me, facing towards me and eating their hot dogs. One of them saw what i was doing, leaned over to her friend and muttered something. All of a su
