In the advent of recent protests and black lives matter campaign, I have dug deep to find out the ultimate reason for racial injustice in this country and all over the world against black people and I have concluded that the fundamental problem is in the names of the races. To begin to change the minds of everyone that all races are equal, we need to start from the very reason why one race thinks it is more supreme to other races, especially the black race. By its dictionary meaning, the word black is the opposite of white, and it is only natural for a white person, to innately believe they are the opposite and better version of a black person.  Aside from the race definition in the dictionary, the word BLACK connotes everything bad while the word white means everything good and unblemished. Even though the color classification of people is what is common today, it was infact not how people were classified in the beginning. The color classifications were made by people who believed that the white race is the biologically superior race and the black race is the inferior and unintelligent race. This has been debunked on several occasions by other scientists overtime and in our current world, everyone is equal. 
Please note that this is not an attack on white people, I am only advocating for a name change for black people so that we are no longer the opposite of the white race.

Thank you.
