One way the article conveys this message to the reader is that various studies show that black annual incomes are significantly lower than the average annual income, and that the gap between white income and black income is very large. Another way the article sends the message to the reader is when the article talks about how this conflict was derived and why this is happening in our society, and the reason why America doesn’t have racial economic equality is because of our history with racism and treating blacks as inferior to whites.
America transpired a unique nation made up of different parts. Nevertheless, America is a very unique country because of it being a nation of immigrants mashed into one country under one name.

One incident that can be recalled is based on the age prejudice. The experience is based on the fact me and my husband have an age difference and we are ridiculed consistently due to this fact. The one experience was infuriating was the fact someone told me I was too old to further my education, there is no age limit required when someone want to complete a degree in any subject of choice. The prejudice in society today is unbearable, this due to being bullied because of short comings, as well as being overlooked for employment due to age, sex, and race.

(Plous, 2003) Another gender related issue are the current exposure of females to stereotypes and discriminations about their appearance. Many times what is portrayed in the mass media can have a negative effect on young girls, forcing them to begin altering their bodies to meet some unrealistic requirements set by society.
Furthermore, this gap has been increasing and is larger than it was 20 years ago. According to this data, it is evident that the women was treated unfairly in getting paid. This gap is caused by the women’s lack of courage about asking the boss to raise the salary and the women was seemed to be less able to afford much work than the men. Then, they would be offered easier work which provided less salary. To extend, all those conclusions were based on the bias, natural sex differences and the logical fallacies.
