Racism is the belief or idea of superiority of one race over another, often resulting in discrimination and/or prejudice towards people of the race. The ideology underlying racist practices often includes the idea that humans can be divided into distinct groups that are different due to their social behavior and their innate capacities as well as the idea that they can be ranked as inferior or superior. Since the late 20th century the notion of biological race has been recognized as a cultural invention, entirely without scientific basis. Structural Racism in the U.S. is the normalization of an array of dynamics – historical, cultural, institutional and interpersonal – that routinely advantage whites while producing cumulative and chronic adverse outcomes for people of color.

Racism is a cultural bias pertaining to the belief that there is a distinct human race and that one race is superior to another. Developed by Europeans to justify their enslavement of the ‘Others’, they have maintained racial tendencies and attempts to dehumanize colored people as ‘savage’ and uncivilized to support their inflicted maltreatment of them. Racism is real. Though many strides have been made in efforts to exact the devastation imposed on colored peoples’ dignity and rights to liberty, communal relations remain stained. Just as we live in a world where even visas have varying values, discrimination has become an undeniable reality – hindrances to playful world traveling.

This excerpt has taught me that during the time of segregation, Black Islam was not really a religion. Black Islam was a civil rights movement.

However, in Cortijo Nuevo there are a few chances to get a career because some parents do not have money to send their children to a high school or University. In Cortijo Nuevo there is only one Elementary School called Escuela primaria Nicolas Bravo, and there are less than 25 students per grade. Usually the same students go to Telesecundaria Jose Maria Luis Mora (middle school) for three years after they graduated from elementary school.
