John Hope Franklin, in the foreword, dwells on the impact of the time between 1954 and 1992 and the impact it had on American Society, how fight for equality is far from easy and patience is required in the fight to "eliminate the road blocks that prevent the realization of the ideal of equality". In the preface, Sitkoff is clear that that history does not speak for themselves and attempt to detail any particular will be influenced by the author 's personal beliefs.

Some strategies that can be used to enrich children’s understanding and respect for cultural identities within the services community may include: - • providing activities and opportunities that engage other cultures These activities could be a culture celebration for a day or week such as Chinese New Year, St Patrick’s Day, Christmas etc., where the children could come dressed up as something that represents that particular culture i.e. dragon, leppricon, Noah etc. and play games that originated from that culture, do drawings of things found in that culture or read books at story time that give information and embraces the culture. • engaging parents and families to discuss cultural practices.
In “HARRISON BERGERON” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., a society is introduced in which everything is ‘equal’. Everyone has the same intelligence, strength, speed, and is similar to one another in every sense. However, in order for this equality, those who are above average must be handicapped until they have no advantage over their peers. Along with this, George is forced to deal with constant pain, whether it’s gunfire or ball peen hammers in his head. This shows how complete equality is impossible, and the pursuit of it only causes inequality.
during the civil rights movement there was a lot of chaos going on. People back then were treated differently due to segregation. The african american people tried fighting for their rights to have the same equality as the white people had. any african american tried making history by either going to an all white school or getting their rights to vote.
In the world we live in, equality has always been a foreign concept. On an everyday basis, people are being assessed on things that make them distinctive or unique, and there is no such thing as two people being equal. There has never been a time in history where people came together as one immense community. We have always and will continue to be broken up into groups based on the gender stated on our birth certificates, the color of our skin, the religion we practice, and countless different factors. One of the most evident factors of inequality is demonstrated through racism based on the color of one's skin.
In “ The Struggle Continues for Racial Equality in America” speech by Ginger Adams Otis, there’s a quote that explains how equality may never be achieved: “ Blacks also make forty-percent of the population in homeless shelters, although they account for thirteen-percent of the U.S population. They also have the highest rate of ‘severely cost-burdened renters’- those who pay at least half their income to rent, leaving little for continued education for themselves or their children.” Our country’s equality hasn’t changed from 1963, so equality doesn’t seem achievable. The quote proves the point that equality can’t be achievable because although the law wants equality in the United States, there are people who make it impossible. But, there are Americans with the hope that equality will be achieved, but there are people who don’t have the hope that equality will be achieved.
Racial Inequality is still a problem according to the news. On the news it talks about cops shooting black people when they are not doing anything wrong and on top of that they don’t even have any weapons on them. Racial inequality is still a problem in America, but there are ways to fight against it. A look at recent police shootings involving black men article and the school segregation article both prove that Racial inequality still exists in America.
