Many black and Latino residents in Los Angeles faced significant discrimination by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) during the 1950’s and 60’s.

Blacks did not feel safe in the vicinity of the police force, usually used to detain them, rather than protect them from violence. A quote from Malcolm X explains the situation well:
Racism has always been the “elephant in the room”: everyone knows it’s there but no one really seems to acknowledge its. It has been affecting Latinos for a very long time now and it is something that people are still trying to fight against today.

Ivins ' Article points out important arguments in Texas that require greater research and comprehension, however, all of her stances have supported research. The dilemmas that Ivan addresses in her literature are situations Texas is still dealing with in the modern era and requires much improvement on. These problems include Homophobia, Racism and a new identification of what it means to be a ‘Texan’. Although changes such as same-sex marriage legalization are sweeping across America, there are still articles surfacing about blatant Homophobia in the same regions of Texas. More recently, Houston voted against the non-discrimination policy, which made it illegal to actually discriminate against someone in the workplace; this is while Texas is still dealing with hate towards race, gender, and sexual orientation.

Major Provisions The Texas Labor Code is large and encompasses many issues; however the vast majority of the statute establishes a commission regulating discriminatory practices. Together with the sections defining terms, this statute becomes quite lengthy. This evaluation shall focus on the purposes and practices established and prohibited in this statute.

The FLSA was signed because Roosevelt believed “all but the hopeless reactionary will agree that...government must have some some control over maximum hours, minimum wages.” Minimum wage is defined as the lowest hourly rate at which most employers may legally pay their workers.
