Another act that Johnson had passed was the Immigration and Nationality Services Act. This act had abolished the earlier quota system based on immigrant national origin to a new policy, which was based on reuniting immigrant families and attracting skilled workers to the United States. It was fairer to immigration as a whole. A product of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, was created to ensure fairness in employment practices based on any discrimination. This further continued Lyndon B. Johnsons views and goal of creating a “Great Society.” Besides the goal of equality, Johnsons also declared an “unconditional war on poverty.” Johnson had made it one of his most important goals to end poverty.

Personally, going to a predominantly white college has taught me that not everyone wants to see me make it in life and not even everyone believes that I can. I also agree that there is definitely not only one way to be black. Now, if you look at the type of things that are shown in the media and go off stereotypes then you might think that the black race is constricted to certain things. I realize that I
Researchers examine different approaches that organizations can take in order to insure their companies practice gender equality. Although we live in a world where discrimination is discouraged, it still occurs in many organizations. Lenka, D., & Sahoo, D.K. (2016). Breaking the glass ceiling: opportunity for the organization.
On other hand, the most places in university reserved for service-class children. Service - class has much more privileges.

More opportunities in modern day society can compensate them for centuries of slavery or oppression that occurred in the past.
