A Reaction to Maya Angelou's "A Brave and Startling Truth"

Different people and different races should always get along. We should get along with every body. The blacks should get along with the whites. We all are the same. We are no different from each other. That is what Maya Angelou is trying to say in her poem, “A Brave and Startling Truth.”
What if different people with different race live in the same neighborhood? They should be able to get along because they live in the same neighborhood and because they get to see each other every day. If they don’t get along, they will probably fight and might go to jail.
It is not fair that Cubans and Puerto Ricans do not need a green card and Mexicans have to have a green card. Mexicans can’t get a good job sometimes, and Cubans and Puerto Ricans can get good jobs.
America should get along with other countries so we can stop going to war.
