Racial inequality is a very large and growing issue in America, and not much is being done about it. It continues to go unnoticed that African Americans are treated unfairly in mostly every aspect of their lives.

“The Courage My Mother Had” by Edna St. Vincent Millay was a very touching poem for me to read. Edna was a poet during the late 1800s to the mid-1900s. The poem was about a girl’s mother who passed away and the writer explains what courage her mother had which then was passed on to her daughter.

Annawake grows away from these beliefs and realizes that Taylor isn't like the white family who took and mistreated Gabriel. She even verdicts that Turtle should keep her name and still be around Taylor because she was a posting influence on
Race is an issue. Our culture tries to pretend that it’s not, but our minds can’t help but compare the people with the stereotypes. It’s easy to identify yourself based on your race, but it’s even easier to pre-judge others. Our race has nothing to do with potential, with success or with what a person is capable of.
