Bad News: Racism Happens Everywhere
I like to keep up with international news, which is harder than you think when major news sources in America tend to focus on domestic issues, not international. (Boo!) But today I read about how there are racist riots going on is Moscow. Basically, some rioters are calling for the death of immigrants, breaking out the Nazi salute and yelling about "Russia for Russians." I am so sorry to hear this, because, wow, that's really awful. Some immigrants were even attacked, and it's hard not to imagine how it must be scarier than usual to be an immigrant in Russia right now.
