There is so much racism in Emporia that it's sick... Young African Americans are not given a fair chance to do or become anything in Emporia. I myself have been mistreated several times and it was not because of my actions in Emporia it's who you know not what you know and I'm quite sure that other cities are often like that but there is no reason that it should go to our youth as how it should be. The community needs to get together to stop this nonsense once and for all
