I was raised to believe that the only people who should have freedom are straight white Americans. My guardians are strong conservatives and when I was younger I obviously listened to what they told me. Now that I'm older luckily I was able to realize that every human being deserves freedom and a chance to be an American. No matter your skin color, age, gender, or sexuality...everyone should be treated equally and deserves to have the same rights as a straight white male. Even thought I'm mixed, with white and black, I still believed the things my parent guardians told me and I am so happy that I grew up and learned what was true about the world. Hopefully, one day, everyone will come to the same conclusion as myself.
