In Kendall Jenner's world, justice comes in the form of a Pepsi can.

However, in the real world, justice moves at the slowest pace possible, especially in the United States. Unfortunately, racism is alive and well today. The power struggle between white people and people of color continues to proliferate, and hate crimes only make the problem that much worse. People, no matter their race or ethnicity, are afraid, and Sean Christopher Urbanski is just playing off their fear. "Urbanski, 22, was arrested on murder charges in the death of Richard Collins III in the early hours of Saturday," a BBC News article states. According to the online outlet, Urbanski was a member of "Alt-Reich Nation," which is a Facebook page dedicated to the persecution of Jews, African-Americans, women, etc.

If anyone were to join the group, then they already have a deep-seated hatred for others. Urbanski just chose to act on his anger and anxiety. "Collins, 23, was visiting friends at the College Park campus when he was stabbed in the chest with a knife," the article continues.

While police have yet to determine whether or not Urbanski's murder was a hate crime, one thing's for certain. Collins, an army aspirant who would've graduated from Bowie State University this week, just lost his life, and his death is another reason why America needs to get her ish together. If she had done so a time ago, then Collins might still be alive.

"He was taken to Prince George's County Shock Trauma, where he was declared dead. Two police officers reportedly found Mr Urbanski sitting on a bench about 50ft (15m) from where Mr Collins was stabbed," the article states.

Before his passing, he was confronted by Urbanski. The killer was shouting for him to "step left," but Collins just told him "no." Urbanski was so upset at him that he stabbed him in the chest. While Urbanski could have mental problems, he was most likely looking for someone to harm. Overall, the story just stinks. No matter what Urbanski's motives were, Collins will never get his life back.

May he rest in peace, and may his family and friends have peace.
