Racism and this text effects Esperanza and everyone around her in a very negative way. People are even afraid to come near their neighborhood, they fear that they will be attacked. The residents of Mango Street are talked about as criminals, just because of their race and their poverty. As a result of being Hispanic, Esperanza and those around her are viewed by other, higher classes, as a minority. Hispanics at that time made less money and were seen as lessers compared to people in the higher class.
The House on Mango Street shows that the basis of violence and poverty are social inequality. This social inequality limits lower class from getting employed. The neighbourhood in the novel is impoverished because of the inequality in their society. The House on Mango Street shows that women are sexually abused, not having the opportunity to receive the same amount of education as men and have unequal contributions to the workforce. In our society, gender inequality leads to men having more power than women.
Social Inequalities 1: A social inequality that comes from Police brutality is a social class issue. Because once a citizen is labeled a criminal he or she no longer fit into society's social norm of being a good citizen (Ferris and Stein, 2014). This causes the citizen to lose prestige and social standing as well as job

Boo Radley is the perfect example of a victim of social inequality. He is shut out by his family and community due to his mental disability and is discriminated against and blamed for all the problems that happen around Maycomb. Furthermore, he is viewed as an unapproachable monster by the Maycomb community, which encourages the neighborhood to spread many rumors about him, most of which are false. The quote “There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he
Consequently, Sunflower County was known as one of the worst counties on the subject of racial discrimination. Moye explained how with a decline in the need of sharecroppers many African Americans found it difficult to acquire a job. Consequently many Africans moved to find work in other cities. The author explains the racial discrimination occurrences within his text to explain the detrimental state of the poor community. For example, boycotts began to break out within white businesses.
“With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing. The brain where it “regulates aggression, long range planning, mental, flexibility, abstract thinking has not yet been developed.”(Berger) In the article “Justice for Juveniles” a child is tried as an adult his parents don’t want him to go to jail because they say it is too big for him, and he wouldn’t last a day in there. The judge didn’t bother to
Discrimination on the basis of caste, colour, ethnicity or religion is against the basic Human Rights. Sadly, job market studies have revealed that black population is often the victim of such racial profiling. Many research papers and studies conducted on this topic suggest that black sounding names are less likely to get a call back for job in comparison to white sounding names. Moreover, black people are often assumed to be drugs and violence, so they are mostly considered inappropriate candidates for high manageable and professional positions, thus they usually end up working on low wages on contracts or part-time jobs. Most of the time black people are behind the bars, going to jail has often become a routine for most of black population
The perspective that people who practice racial profiling view minorities results in negative effects. Due to the lack of recognition, there is no found respect between law enforcement agencies and their victims.

However, the extortion money was too much, and the business would eventually end bankrupt. For countless families, this violence instilled immense fear in their hearts. Fear took over the lives of many people, but I decided that this situation would not stop me from living a normal life. When people asked me why I was still living in such a deadly city, I would simply respond that I loved my hometown. The city was going through a tough period, but it was up to its people to keep the city alive.
A system that is built upon discrimination will continue to discriminate until major interventions are devised and upheld throughout the community (Reskin, 2012). Badger (2016) explains that after recent peaceful protests in Baltimore, the mayor spoke out and blamed “thugs” for these “riots”. The protest aimed to explain citizen’s frustrations with the institutions oppressing them, and exemplify the significance of how interrelated disparities are in communities (Badger, 2012). The mayor failed to acknowledge that we have created slums and prolonged the poverty in these neighborhoods. She ignored that disparities are all connected, such that living in a poor neighborhood typically leads to a poor education, then to a very low level job, and that then inherently lowers their health outcomes (Massey and Denton, 1993).
The tourists who visit Lee County are awfully repugnant and it seems that as a whole the tourists have something akin to a complete loss of decency and common sense. The tourists display poor driving skills coupled with a high propensity for the destruction of public property and consistently high blood alcohol levels. These are a few examples of the offensive behaviors that the tourists burden the locals of Lee County with. This is no small demographic either there are a large number of tourists that they seemingly outnumber the local residents. Without doubt, the local residents endure the most intolerable behavior from the tourists at the height of tourist season.
