Racism -- Acrostic/Non-Fiction

Racism is like a hurricane; it is a powerful force of anxiety and misunderstanding.
Accumulated factors of wind (fear), rain (stereotypes) and storm surge (hate);
Circulating into an all-consuming powerful force that affects everyone in the world.
It should stand to reason that mankind should have evolved to overcome this;
Sadly it remains that as long as the weakness of fear lay within, history will repeat.
Maybe some day long after I have passed the dream of inner peace may happen.

Author's Notes:
Inner peace is not the lack of fear but a balance within where there is control over that fear to keep it from causing strife.
