Have you thought of what it would be like if you were constantly discriminated against? Up until and around the late 1960’s many people such as hispanics, blacks, and even women were not being treated fairly. People starting to stand up and address these situations, but it took a lot of courage and strength to fight against the normal. Equal rights is treating everyone no matter their race, gender, or religion with the same amount of respect as the next. Over time people began to take initiative and realize that equal rights should be and remain a given standard all around the world.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said "Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love" (qtd. in "Martin"). Martin believed that people of all color could come together as one, which he helped achieved, but also cost him his life. Martin Luther King Jr. was a very inspirational man whose assassination was caused by people of other race, being threatened by his want for change in what was considered to be equality for his people.
Some cities are so segregated that 50% of blacks would need to move. A majority of poor schools are still highly segregated Most people who live in poor housing were in segregated schools. Most areas with low income or poor housing tend to not live in areas with good schools systems. Poor communities tend to not have the money to fund schools for better education sources like teachers, equipment or school trips. Segregated schools may feature a higher disciplinary or crime rate as well as lower graduation rates and SAT scores.
It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness, and it's not the end of disorder.” He is saying that difficult times are ahead; violence, injustice, disorganization - these are all parts of our future. Kennedy then transitions “But the vast majority of white people and the vast majority of black people in this country want to live together, want to improve the quality of our life, and want justice for all human beings that abide in our land.” Kennedy again takes word for the majority that we want to live in harmony. He validates everything Martin Luther stood for and pushed it to seem like a great closer to a great man and his
Proposing and passing a bill in regards to ending discrimination would be lengthy meaning that there would not be an immediate solution to the problem. There has also been some resistance before with the white people illustrating the need to have segregation in the schools (Weatherspoon, 2006). From the early 19th century, the black people were separated from the whites and they each attended different schools. It has taken a long time to integrate the two in one system and there is a likely hood that it may also take longer to impose a bill that fosters equality in the education
As a young country, the United States was a land of prejudice and discrimination. Wanting to grow their country, white Americans did what they had to in order to make sure that they were always on top, and that they were always the superior race. It did not matter who got hurt along the way because everything that they did was eventually justified by their thinking that all other races were inferior to them. A Different Mirror by Ronald Takaki describes the prejudice and discrimination against African Americans and Native Americans in the early history of the United States. We see how the leaders of this country, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, had prejudice thoughts about these two different ethnic groups, how prejudice was built into society and the
"All men are created equal", we were all created the same way; from our mother’s womb, and all babies are equally important, whether you are born a prince or a slave in your mother's womb, completely innocent and equal.  However, some people out there do not think so, they feel that due to some of us being born with physical or mental disabilities or others being born into financially insecure families it would result in significantly less opportunities in life as compared to those who are born into families that can offer them a much better way of life. Although it is true that life is not fair towards everyone, I want to say that everybody deserves the same rights and responsibilities. Nobody is or looks the same, the color of your skin, your race, or your ethnicity makes you different from one another, this does not mean that not everybody deserves the same and that some people do not deserve to be treated equally and one of these discrimination is racism, which is something we have all witnessed before. Many people fail to recognize that race is
In the civilized world that we work so much to build, equality, in all its forms, should not be a matter of concern. However, disputes will always arise, as this issue is one of great complexity and being able to discuss on this matter requires empathy and also knowledge of the human rights, ethics and the law. The subject of human rights has been and will be, for a long time, a disputed one. People have been fighting for their rights ever since they have developed consciousness and, in many cases, their voices have not been heard. One powerful example is the Second World War, in which millions of lives have been taken due to ignorance, fear and desire for power.
Throughout history, hope provokes those discriminated against to challenge for equality for all and in between. Everyone was created equal yet not everyone is treated equal through the prejudiced culture we live in. Historians study past events acknowledge these mistakes to try to reduce the chances of it happening again. However, history repeats itself and the fight for civil rights fairness is throughout history. Intolerance ignorance towards ethnic groups has lead to everlasting genocides and discrimination since the dawn of time.
Children will not be deprived of their education, mental and physical development and most importantly, have their childhood stolen by child labour. Their lives will be safer as these uneducated and inexperienced child laborers may be completely unaware of the short and long term risks while working. With a proper education, the children will be able to get a better paying job in the future instead of working in the fields and plantations. In the long run, not just the child but the whole family and country would be able to benefit. Child labourers will now be offered a basic school education, social interactions with their peers, more rounded personal growth and development and proper emotional support.
