Just as we live in a world where even visas have varying values, discrimination has become an undeniable reality – hindrances to playful world traveling. If we cannot identify with anyone outside of our world, it becomes easier to abuse and oppress them because of a lack of love (seeing oneself in the ‘Other’). W.E.B. Dubois had a desire to see America interpreted through the acknowledgement of two very different worlds merging through African and White Americanism (McKenna & Pratt, 2015). Or as it were, racial barriers should be acknowledged and both sides study to merge and unify.
The Civil Rights movement is one of the most discussed topics in American history. Segregation played a big time role in the 1960’s. White people and colored people had different restrooms, water fountains, and other public features. Thankfully, these things are not segregated today! Rosa Parks was one of the blacks that wanted to end segregation.
Race discrimination trend in the 20th century was quite complicated with changes in many fields. Black endured a long period of unequal treatment and limited opportunities from the white, so they always desired to change their life and improve their social position. As a consequence, they started participate in politics and received support in the election. The black also began attend in the same schools as the white. Their performance in education and the permission of the white expressed the alternative attitudes of the white to the African Americans.
Many black people, representatives of Muslim or other religions suffer from the discrimination, in many developing or undeveloped countries minorities rights are not protected. It is obviously fact that racism is artificial classification of people and not a biological category. I will try to list what results racism
The bus boycotts are one of the main reasons blacks and whites can live happily ever after today. Overall, the Montgomery Bus Boycott was a catalyst to the integration of African Americans and whites, and the boycott brought national attention to the struggles in the South. It is a very important time in America. Without the movement, America would be in a very different place than what it is
Proponents believe they when these specific races are being discriminated on media they should be more strict and have consequences for their actions but opponents believe when the public is being discriminated on media, it’s to show that these people are not great for the public, they might even include recent facts about how countries are being destroyed and there are killings by these specific race. I argue that racial discrimination on the media should be addressed more than it already is. I think this because hearing horrible news can cause poor mental and physical health. (“Trump is a Textbook Racist” - Jay A. Pearson) Minority races are still shown more negatively in media than white people. (“Disrupting Implicit Racial Bias and Other Forms of Discrimination to Improve Access Achievement, and Wellness for Students of Color” - David J. Johns) Also there are videos on media, about people getting verbally abused especially races that are constantly attacked.

In the 1960s the amount of injustices African Americans encountered were higher than ever. Africans Americans were merely fed up with the dehumanizing treatment , so they began to protest. This was called the Civil Rights Movement. African Americans were lynched , sicked by K-9s, hosed down , and even beaten in the streets by the police force for their equality.

So in general, during the 1950s and 1960s much was achieved to break down segregation in the USA, including changes to Federal and State Laws, changes in daily life for all Americans, and enactment of laws allowing for the prosecution of racist crimes and vilification.
Racism has been apart of history in every civilization, to think America currently does not have issues with racists is naive. On a daily basis people are being segregated because of the color of their skin. It is hard to believe that someone would have prejudice views towards certain races, yet this terrible occurrence happens daily. Whether you are from mexican or native american backgrounds, in the eyes of some people you are considered a minority. It is troubling for me know that people everyday are going through struggles because of their race, I don’t think white people understand how lucky they are that they are white, the hardships that black persons have to go through would have crushed many of the white people I know.
