American society hardly changed socially after the Civil War, with the majority of the U.S. population holding incredibly racist views on black Americans, not specifically limited to the South. Pap’s racism in Huck Finn is insight into the creation of racists across generations, from parent to child. Racism hardly changed after the Civil War, especially in southern states. This racism had begun generations earlier, taught from parent to child over the decades. Racism could not be completely eradicated in the States with ease due to a large older population raising children to hold prejudice views.
Depending on how many children live within that one household determines the amount of quality time the parent has to spend with each child. In addition, if the child is not being raised by a biological parent, they are normally raised by another family member, such as a grandparent. Consequently, social skills and self-identification become skewed to a degree. Generally, children are the products of their environment. Lombardo (2014) stated that within the African American family, children receive an abundance of negativity characteristics from their family members.

Nancy A. Heitzeg, a Sociology Professor at St. Catherine University published an article titled Education or Incarceration: Zero Tolerance Policies And The School to Prison Pipeline. In this scholar article Heitzeg, addresses the zero tolerance policy and the negative effects of this policy. She looks at the growing number of suspensions, expulsions, and dropout rates. Most importantly how this policy is racially disproportionate; for more Black and Latino students are likely to face harsher consequences for this zero tolerance policy. She argues for reform and alternatives that will lead our youth away from the criminal justice system and back toward the education
Many believe they have used this as a device to “screen out” the African American parents wishing to adopt. Written in the Position Statement regarding transracial adoption it is stated that “Black families can be found when agencies alter their requirements, levels of approach, and change their definition of what is considered a suitable family” (NABSW.) Many could question why there is a remarkable difference in the number of white parents adopting than African American parents. The NABSW believe that adoption agencies have always catered to “middle-class” white people, and have done so even more because of the decreased number of white children available for adoption, and the large amount of African Americans still available in hopes to motivate them into adopting a child of color. In reality, the standards set for prospective parents to adopt or foster a child are not set with
If slaves never disobeyed the former laws defending slavery, there would still be slavery in America. As a human being, one disobeys purposely to make an impact on certain issues or events that society disagrees on and that is how progress is made. Disobedience is indeed a valuable trait that promotes social progress. In order to change or make an impact there has to be some form of disobedience. Early America consisted of rebellion when the triangular trade brought thousands of enslaved Africans into the U.S. not thinking of the thousands of lives they were destroying.
It removes inmates from their roles as breadwinners, making their families poorer, and from their roles as spouses and parents. This latter effect became more important as the incarceration boom increasingly placed less serious offenders behind bars, the children of the prison generation (Hagan & Dinovitzer, 1999, p. 153). A growing number of children, probably more than 1.5 million, have a parent in prison at any one time, and probably more than 7 million children have had a parent in prison at some point during their childhood. These children are more likely to commit delinquency and to experience school related performance problems, depression and anxiety, low self-esteem and aggressiveness (Clear, 2007, p. 97). Although the exact reasons that parental imprisonment has these effects remain to be determined, a recent review concluded that the effects appear to be relatively strong, with multiple adverse outcomes (Murray & Farrington, 2008 p.186).

These points include the problem with modern day slavery, why slavery continues, and how the world's ignorance about modern forms of slavery like human trafficking, human commodities, and forced labour is why slavery continues and is not yet stopped. To begin with, the problem of modern day slavery is more than that people might think it is. Considering the fact that America has created the thirteenth amendment and have ¨abolished” slavery, it
