August 27, 1989

A recent episode of "21 Jump Street" involved the issue of racism. It was so brilliantly written and performed that I simply don't believe it can be equaled. My reasons for giving this review are simple. Ever since I was old enough to understand topics such as prejudice or racism (which unfortunately for me was at a very young age), I have always tried to distance myself. To me, the hate was a disease. Catch the disease and you're hooked. I just couldn't understand how men could hate each other solely on the basis of looks and beliefs. Even now at the age of 16, I still have problems coping with it. I admit that I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn, but it helps to know that I am not alone. My compliments to the cast and crew of "21 Jump Street" and Fox Broadcasting for their efforts in bringing this issue to the public's attention.
