A society can be prosperous if people can efficiently work together to accomplish great things. Many citizens in the United States can make a difference in the community they live in by supporting their families and friends. These citizens are parents who play an important role in their child’s life and educate them. Single parents, however, have a disadvantage because they do not have the support of loved ones. One example of a single parent who was criticised, and judged because of stereotypes was Ben Carson’s mother. Single parents face many obstacles, but if they show qualities like determination, then they can overcome any stereotypes people may impose on them.

Throughout the last decades of history, the traditional family structure held to dearly by the United States has begun to crumble. The increase in divorce rates, poverty, and the normalization of single parenthood has begun to cause a shift in the nuclear family style. Single parents, both male and female alike, have risen highly since the early 60’s.

Being a fast food worker for the past year and a half, I have been exposed to numerous different types of people, and most of them are not the same race as me. When I first started to get to know them, even though at times there was difficulty communicating, we were able to make it work and build stronger relationships.

She was an example of someone who was able to teach me things about herself I could have stereotyped and not taken the time to learn anything about her as an individual.
National Security within the United States has been a concern since the 1930s and is only heightened during times of war. Naturally, due to the conflicts with particular countries, World War II and the Cold War created racial stereotypes. Unfortunately, those stereotypes lead to racially bias legal doctrines being created within the United States . The court was not alone in shaping these doctrines, as there was immense pressure from both public and military interests. Particular cases, during WWII and the Cold War, can give examples of how people shouldn’t be treated and how, at the time, every man and women wasn’t truly created equal within the United States, that the 14th amendment was a written law but not properly
