What is redemption? Redemption is the act of being saved or freed from sin. This is an important part of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter.” Redemption was what the characters in the book were seeking, and was the reason for many of their actions.

In the 19th century, racism is a common issue that was not being treated seriously. There are a variety of ethnic groups within the United States itself, and each group is treated differently depending on their skin color. Many serious cases that happened including insults and or even as far as murders. The majority looking down at the minority was considered as a normal thing, however, the formidable groups do not even have the right and the strength to speak up for themselves. This problem did not get solved until one person finally decided to stand up and fight for the rights everyone deserves to have, which was when Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, in 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C at which

It is no secret that racism is something abominable. It is a word coloured by the actions people executed under its name, such as the holocaust and apartheid. A dangerous word pointing at humanity’s flaws and disfigurement, associated with former mistakes made in history. However, even though the majority of the earth’s population agree that racju8ism has been a negative force in our world’s history, there are still people who hold onto its ideas - every day we hear about it on the news, we read about in articles and we see it happen right before our eyes.
