This is a informational article from the health sector that discusses the effects of racial discrimination to the mental health of an individual. The article gives an overview of mental related illnesses that can occur to persons facing discrimination due to their race. Such illnesses include, anxiety and depression, distress and psychiatric symptoms. The study has shown the importance of treating and changing our thoughts to people of other races. Negative thoughts pose a threat to the victims involved in any type of racial discrimination. This source supports my view that people need change on how they think about other races. A negative reaction to people who are not of your race will definitely affect their lives. They feel as a segregated group of persons; this can lead to negative mental effects such as depression.
Wan .W, Sarah, K. (2017, August 14). The Washington Post. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2017/08/14/why-are-people-still-racist-what-science-says-about-americas-race-problem/
The information from this source seeks to answer the question why are people still racists. The case study is performed in America after a race discrimination case. It is the role of parents to teach their children that being a racist is not the heroic way of living. The writer seeks to understand whether older people in America are becoming more racists and their children progress more on the same. It is important for all Americans to learn that being a racist is an outdated system of living. Additionally children should be trained up teaching them to appreciate all people regardless of their race. The source provides a substantial support to my topic on the significance of understanding other races. As children grow they adapt and learn new things according to the environment they are exposed to. It is essential to train all children to love other races for a successful racist free society.

Generally, the article gives an overview of differing views on the lives of blacks and whites. This source supports the need for change on how people think about other races. There is need to treat black and whites equally regardless of their varying colors.
