People from ethnic minorities and religious groups are significantly less likely than average to be at work, and when in work are paid significantly less than average. American have not lived up to the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independance. Throughout America’s history, groups have dealt with a large amount of deprivation of rights. For example, in the 1920s, black men and women were recognized for their music, literature, dance, and clothing. Although they were recognized, they were still segregated during the revolution.
In the first chapter, Mayorga-Gallo examines multicultural neighborhoods and their experiences, “This book unpacks the meanings white and non-white residents attach to this multiethnic space and their experiences within it” (Mayorga-Gallo 4). She unpacks interracial relationships in multiethnic neighborhoods by studying an annual picnic in a typical multiethnic neighborhood in North Carolina called Creekridge Park. She guides us (the readers) through the experiences of Black, White, and Latino/a residents. She also includes racial, gender, and age demographic charts to inform the reader. She included demographics to make a point that although neighborhoods are integrated, it does not necessarily mean that that will increase positive interracial relations.

spaces, and the othering that took place there. With the influx of southern African Americans and European immigrants, Chicago neighborhoods began to develop along racial and ethnic lines. In turn, government authorities became worried about the purported vice in these districts.
Prior to immigrating to the United States, my family lived in a small village in western Belarus. Here I learned very early on about the struggles that those living in poverty are faced. Without easy access to clean water and an abundance of food, the members of my community were forced to provide for themselves by traveling great distances to nearby metropolitan areas or to grow their own produce. Limited resources bring difficulty to an area that is in need. During the first few years of my immigration to the United States, we found ourselves placed in to a similar community, facing many of the same challenges but in a different way.
The argument of gentrification has been steadily rising in if it's good or bad. Everyone argues that rich white people push out middle to poor class blacks from their homes. In aspect that seems to be what happens but I think that most people have it wrong. Not everyone is very educated on what actually happens.
In 1966, a housing discrimination bill in favor of President Lyndon Johnson was relinquished by the United States Senate. Subsequently, after two years, civil rights advocates tried to pass the same discrimination bill. Following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, the U.S. Senate permitted a Fair Housing Act which prohibited private discrimination in housing sales and rentals. What stood out to me in this section of The Color of Law is how an assassination was needed to establish the ethical bill. It is almost like the U.S. Senate was waiting for a perfect time to pass it.
Opening: Discrimination has always been a part of the Americas past. I chose this subject, because I think it is a very interesting subject, and because it is still a major issue in America. I have also seen this movie called the butler, which is about the same topic, and after I saw it, I just wanted to learn more about it. Everything is about race, skin-color and religion, but the racism has only gotten better with time. There are still discrimination in America, and I never think it will stop, but hopefully the black people someday will be equal to everybody else.
“It is a wise man who said that there is no greater inequality than the equal treatment of unequals,” was one bunch of wise words once said by Felix Frankfurter. What Frankfurter means by this is that the biggest act that is unequal is giving equal treatment to those who are not your equal. In America, there will never be a time where true racial and social equality is achieved. America will never achieve true social and equal equality, because there has been uneven social classes and different views of different people for as long as we’ve been a country, most people still view some people as their unequal whether that be because of their race or their social class, and you cannot completely control what people say and how they think about
In the past decade race relations have taken a tremendous part in the daily lives of United State’s citizens,but it has always been endorsed in our history. For example, in the nation’s mere beginning when the Mayflower pilgrims and the Native Americans became formed one of the most important alliance in the United State’s history. However, not all race relations can be positive, Recently prospective Republican candidate for the presidency Donald Trump has taken a firm stance against the Mexican community by accusing the Mexicans of “bringing drugs and crime”. It is recognizable that the United States has had many racial affairs, and still continues to do so due to the simple fact that the country of the United States has the most extensive
