Segregation has been a controversy for many years now, even though there were laws passed down the road where there should be more equality and less racism, unfortunate there is still segregation in the United States school’s and we are blind to even see it. Day by day segregation is right in front of us with hatred and discrimination and we all tend to fail to see what’s happening. In the book Elizabeth and Hazel, there were a lot of tension with discrimination in which attitude, influences and heartbreak all takes part in this story which relates to segregation in the past history in America. Today we live in a world with more diversification, but we still are oblivious that we are still living a segregated world where we are still divided into groups, where white people choose to leave minority groups and stay along with schools that are concentrated in their own race.
In 1954, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Brown v. Board of Education. This was a landmark case about the mistreatment of African-American and other minority educators. Brown v. Board of Education was predominantly about racial segregation and housing boundaries. African-American students were not able to attend school with Caucasian students. Moreover, many Caucasians did not want to live by African-American or other people of color and there were laws in place to prevent such desegregation.
There were too many segregated at this time and the educations. Brown v. Board of Education was even become at a point in history because there was still racism. Brown v. Board of Education was warmed people that what they have done was wrong as well as changed the way they felt about the different races and colors. The Brown v. Board of education was
I was surprised by the whole unit reading about the unfortunate racial tension between Caucasians and African-American people. Even After the civil war there was still too much segregation. Schools formed to teach African-American students finding a way to separate Caucasians from African-Americans. Colleges created for African-American students due to the Morrill Act, of 1890. Yet Caucasian colleges were still getting more state funding.
The famous Brown v. Board of Education demonstrates the presence of racial segregation in public schools. Prior to 1957, Central High School, in Little Rock, Arkansas, had never had African American students, despite a 1954 ruling from the Supreme Court stating that racial segregation in public schools in unconstitutional. In September of 1957, nine African American students This sparked angry backlash from a mob of 1000 white protestors. The Supreme Court ruled in the Brown v. Board of Education that Central High School must integrate. (History.com staff)

Have been mistreated for a certain color, race or left out because of it? Well that my friend, is segregation. The issues of segregation is wrong! Segregation has been a problem ever since which the difference of skin color and being a certain type of race. Segregation is wrong because of the following 14th amendment written in the Constitution, people 's UNFAIR rights and the equality.
Decades ago, children of various races could not go to school together in many locations of the United States. School districts could segregate students, legally, into different schools according to the color of their skin. The law said these separate schools had to be equal. Many schools for children that possessed color were of lesser quality than the schools for white students. To have separate schools for the black and white children became a basic rule in southern society.
Throughout history we have seen many forms of educational discrimination and inequality between minority students and white students. Throughout the 1950s and 60s most minority students in the United States faced discrimination and inequality especially African Americans and the hispanics. Most of these African Americans and hispanics attended segregated schools in the 1950s and 60s because they were not allowed to be in school with white students. In 1954 the supreme court case Brown v. Board of Education it was decided that segregated schools are unconstitutional and it violated the 14th Amendment. Today the school experiences of African Americans and other minority students in the United States continue to be substantially
After the Brown versus Board of Education decision, one method of integration was busing. This method required the schools to roughly equally divide the racial composition between its schools. By doing that, it would require the buses to then drive to neighborhoods possibly outside of the district. This could easily solve the problem of segregation in schools.
Racism, the act of “…prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race…”, is a major problem today. It gives people fear, doubt, shame, and sometimes guilt. In addition, racism gives people an awful perspective of life and sometimes, if one is looking up to a racist, the racist’s point of view begins to alter the person’s judgement. Racism could also lead to great conflict arising from those who heavily despise that race and maybe even mass killings, which foreshows that racism needs to be stopped and ended completely.
Racism has always existed with humans. Racism is treating someone differently of unfairly simply because they belong to a different ethnic community of have a different religion or nationality. When someone believes their race is better than another and feels superior ro other people because of his of her race, is called racism. Throughout time, many people have lost their lives, or lost their families and children, and are left without homes due to racism. Racism causes wars, which could destroy humanity ultimately.
