Ashley Mercado started this petition to CNN and

Ever since I was young ,I was always taught about the White men in history. I was never taught about the powerful people of color who have changed our country for the better only a few. We aren’t taught enough about Jim Crow, the civil rights moment etc .We are just made to believe that racism is no longer a current issue, which it truly is. I believe if we educate students more on the history and the start of black discrimination in America, students can be taught empathy for their black peers. Because racism is taught and no child is born with it.
