This is the big question of all to me about segregation, if segregation stops then how will the country be. Also how would others react to this conflict not just in the United States but out of the whole world with having segregation.”Sports today does not have many problems with racism but back in the past there were a lot and it was terrible on how they treated african-americans that knew how to play.” (Monika Stodolska, Kimberly Shinew, Myron Floyd, and Gordon Walker)This statement disturbs me when I read it because our African Americans could not play sports that they are good at jus because of their
For instance, the book does not explain the rational reasons that led towards the iron-fist leadership by the Nation of Islam. It also fails to appreciate effectively the angst of Elijah Muhammad as a conscious Black person who experienced the brutalities of a white-led society. In undertaking such a safe stance, most readers become less conscious of the evil of racism in the American society. The assumption that history of objective has always proven faulty, as it ignores that the emphasis on one part of history against the other also sustains
It still is a major problem in the world today. Many people try to convince themselves that racism no longer exists but it does. Each race is different, but being different doesn 't make you better.

He suggests that black people have been misunderstood and misjudged throughout history. In extreme cases, black people can be perceived as being unpatriotic and disloyal to America. Dyson believes that many Americans lack the understanding of how much black people truly love and support their country. He believes that this can happen because people confuse nationalism with patriotism. These terms are very diverse and shouldn 't be used interchangeably.
Since the beginning of American history, African Americans have had to deal with outright mistreatment and inferiority within society. During slavery, African Americans were completely stripped of their basic civil rights and liberties; they were not considered to be human. During the Civil Rights Movement, although African Americans had gained their freedom nearly a century ago, they still were not treated with dignity and respect, forced to advocate for the rights given to them as citizens of the United States. Because of the racism African Americans experienced, leaders such as David Walker and Martin Luther King organized efforts to help African Americans gain more respect and inclusion in American society. Both leaders had significant
Johnson wrote that alleged he had a black mistress and he disapproved of slavery. Jefferson though slavery affected the masters than it does the slaves. On the contrary, he also believed that they were not capable of intelligence, however, later soon found a Black mathematician. Even with information and his dislike for slavery he still did not emancipate his slaves. One of the main reason why he did not so, he was in enormous debts up to his death.
It has been observed before, that society for a long time discriminated against another minority, the blacks on the same basis - that they were different and inferior. The happy little homemaker and the contented "old darkey" on the plantation were both produced by prejudice…”-Shirley Chisholm This means that she feel `uncomfortable that many people don’t accept females and black to do a certain job. In addition, this also proves that she is forthright when it comes to her speeches. Another example comes from Listen a speech from Howard University by Shirley ‘’While nothing is easy for the black man in America, neither is anything impossible. Like old man river, we are moving along and we will continue to move resolutely until our goal of unequivocal equality is attained.
This high population rate is not good for anyone, in or outside the walls of these confinements. Overcrowded prisons undoubtedly create worse conditions for the prisoners. For the rest of us, as taxpayers it is very costly to fund all of these facilities. I suggest we rethink our current concept of prisons. As, I am interested disgusting racial discrimination, I will focus on the African American prisoners, but the benefits I will discuss are not secluded to one group.
Rand Paul once said “The government has a history of not treating people fairly, from the internment of Japanese Americans in World War II to African-Americans in the Civil Rights era.”(Brainy Quotes). In Louisiana, receiving equal rights was probably considered impossible in the 1960’s. Segregation was insurmountable to escape; everywhere you turned there were signs stating “Whites Only” or “Colored Entrance”.

Today, you can see that many discrimination towards African American peoples were not resolved because people realize, there was racism occurring in their society, but other societies might disagree.
