People in a hurry usually take shortcuts, just like a man who prefers to give money to a beggar (and get rid of any sense of guilt) rather than having a positive chat with him first.

In any case, there will never be any excuse for racism.


I was born in Senegal in 1992, and two years later my mother and I joined my father in Italy.
I’m currently studying Tourism Economics at the University of Bologna and I make amateur comics in my spare time.
