The suggestion that racism is eradicated because a select few are successful is harmful because it ignores all the other people of color that are struggling. The fixed fallacy denies that racism develops in different ways and takes alternate forms at various times. One fixed view on what racism is does not account for the changes in society, so one might dismiss something as not racist just because it is not as severe an action as what has been deemed racist in the past.

Why are mexicans being treated bad and unfairly ? Even though , there is a statement “ Everyone is created equal “. Not everyone is equal because if a person is equal shouldn’t the other have the same right?

Reverse racism is a phenomenon in which discrimination occurs against a dominant or majority of the race, which some people think does not exist because in order to be racist, you have to have a privilege. Racism involves the idea that one’s race is superior and has the right to dominate others. Many people, the minority of the population, think that white people have white privilege, where they can get away with doing such things because of their white color while people of color would have a harder time if put in bad situation. For example, the media portraits white suspects as innocent but any people of color would be labeled as terrorists. The problem with reverse racism also brings up the topic of slavery.

Since, it isn’t justified for America to give us this right of speech, when they knock us down for using it. The Black Lives Matter Movement is proof of this, they protest over and over but the government doesn’t want to take responsibility or change for the better of the community.

Now, I've found that he's much more sensitive to bouts of racial insensitivity than I am, and he's ALOT more inclined to confront people about it! However, I have reminded him of the grace and patience that I extended toward him, so he can extend the same patience to others who may mean well, but are truly ignorant of their transgressions. When I think of what being Black in America means to me, it's a lot like being Superman. He loves and embodies the spirit of the best ideals of his country, but he cannot interact within the social boundaries of that society without conforming to it and assimilating into their lifestyle in order to be accepted. While it’s hardly arguable the effect that my African ancestors played in the formation of the country, I still have to walk into the outside
The Trouble, a conflict in Northern Ireland formed by a division of their own people with different beliefs. Their different opinions between political, economic and unequal treatment toward other civilians were the main key issues in this conflict. They were seeking for the best benefit they could get but unfortunately, some people would not agree since not all of them benefit from the same change. Sometimes new things do not mean is a good thing for everyone being rich, poor, religious and non-religious anyone can get affected.
