Race in America today are mixed up between all different types of people. Most people that come to America from different countries are mostly a different race rather than white.

Over the past year they 're have been a numerous amount of times where people being detained by cops are shot not because of excessive force of not complying with officers but because they where black people with black skin. America is place where we are supposed to have freedom and rights to do things if we want to or not.
In the past decade race relations have taken a tremendous part in the daily lives of United State’s citizens,but it has always been endorsed in our history. For example, in the nation’s mere beginning when the Mayflower pilgrims and the Native Americans became formed one of the most important alliance in the United State’s history. However, not all race relations can be positive, Recently prospective Republican candidate for the presidency Donald Trump has taken a firm stance against the Mexican community by accusing the Mexicans of “bringing drugs and crime”. It is recognizable that the United States has had many racial affairs, and still continues to do so due to the simple fact that the country of the United States has the most extensive
The freedom of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, written in the American Constitution have given many ethnic groups the opportunity to migrate to America. Notoriously been known as the “melting pot,” America has always had problems mixing the races. However, I argue, within the last seventy-five years, with the way media has negatively reported the news, relations among some races have been breached. This thesis seeks to analyze the motives behind media outlets, the way people interpret the information reported and how news have negatively impacted certain ethnic groups. The hypothesis will be supported by data collected through an informational method of research collected from Winthrop University student surveys, an in-depth analysis
America’s wealth gap between middle class and upper class income is at its highest level in decades. According to Pew Research Center’s article “America’s Wealth Gap,” they report in 2010, the median wealth of upper-income families was 6.2 times the median wealth of middle-income families and by 2013, that wealth ratio grew to 6.6. This makes the American Dream a very difficult thing to accomplish, especially for the lower class. The American Dream means that all people have the equal opportunity to achieve success of rising in their social ladder through hard work, determination, and initiative. Some argue that the American Dreams is available and achievable by all.
Racism continues to be an issue that causes a great deal of tension in the United States. While some believe that we are living in a post-racial society, others are aware that racism can take different forms in this day and age. In White Bound: Nationalists, Antiracists, and the Shared Meanings of Race, author Matthew Hughey tackles the topic of racism in a unique way. Hughey focuses on how the members of the two groups that he conducted the study on conceptualize their whiteness and how that relates to racism. Hughey spend a little over one year conducting his research for this project.
The past I have encountered outside of a school setting was going to the African American Museum in Dallas, Texas. I have always wanted to go to an African American Museum to experience the setting of the atmosphere because my peers were talking about it so much I wanted to see what the hype was about. Inside the museum there are artistic, cultural and historical materials that are preserve and display of African American Culture. There is this one exhibit that catches my eyes and it is the African Amedia, this exhibit is and open letter that inspire people to look past the stereotypes that are related to each other base on character and not the race. Not every day you face any race conflict but being in a school setting is where it is majority are especially discrimination towards each other.
Is the n-word an acceptable word? Few might say yes, but the vast majority would say no. The origin and meaning of the n-word should be unacceptable to all African Americans. The word was meant to be used in a harmful way and will always be seen as offensive. No matter how the slang word is used as a term of endearment, the true meaning will be permanently there.
Racism and equality have something that has been going on for a long time now, dating back to all the way when Martin Luther King gave his “I have a dream” speech. The topic racism is something that needs to be changed; we do not need it in the world we live in right now with everything that has been going on. The major thing that is going on right now is the topic of how cops treat African Americans. We have seen many cases of the cops shooting and killing blacks the past few years, and it is something that is becoming a major issue.
The face of America is always changing, and race is currently at the forefront of these changes. It is predicted by the US census bureau that by 2042, minorities will make up the majority of Americans. As the percentage of minorities in America rise, it changes dynamics in many parts of the country and causes controversy due to contrasting views. This change is caused by a variety of reasons, boiling down to the majority of children being born as minorities. This is already affecting the structure of our country, as seen in the 2016 election, and will continue to affect the future of our country for decades to come.
The uprising of racism began dating back to the eighteenth century throughout the times of the slave trade. The slave trade began when Europeans came into Africa and captured African Americans forcing them into captivity. However, the reason behind racism was because of whites desire to exploit black people economically. During that era African Americans were being sold and bought by white owners as if they were pieces of property. Blacks were treated like animals, and, looked upon as illiterate where they were stereotyped to only being useful when it came to manual labor.
