If it weren't for these prejudice thoughts, many people would be together united as one fighting to better one another. As Brent states in “Black Men and Public Space,” “the hatred he feels for blacks makes itself known to him through a variety of avenues - one being his discomfort with that ‘special brand of paranoid touchiness’ to which he says blacks are prone.” (514). Due to this fear of one another, it has brought much tension among many. This discrimination has been going on for many years and is what makes the United States divided. These many examples provided by Brent proved these exact points and showed the belitting of African Americans within Americas society.
We live in a globalized and integrated world in which people of all backgrounds, personalities, race and religions are harmonizing or should we say co existing as one society.

Many people marched, fought and died to pursue freedom from racism, and living in the end result of those sacrifices, a lot of us believe that racism does not exists, that it is an issue of the past If that was
Gabriel Chac English IV Mrs. Nemo 5 March 2018 Racial Discrimination Racial discrimination is when someone 's values are discriminated against or are treated differently such as racism.

The 50’s was an era of great deal of dilemmas for black segregation. African Americans have been fighting for equal rights for so long.
Racism has deep roots in American history. Slavery, segregation, and unnecessary police charges are just a few examples of racism. But, why does racism exist? Many people believe that their race and ethnicity is superior than others, and that those who are “different” are inferior. Those who are considered, “inferior,” have to be treated differently, which results in unfairness and discrimination.

Some of the questions anthropologist kept asking includes. ‘’ why do racists attitudes continue to exists, maybe people are naturally critizing people of the other
Racial Oppression in American History The United States of America was born from a rebellion and has become one of the leading super powers; a place that is highly sought after to live. Throughout, American history there are instances where racial oppression was the status quo. The rights and civil liberties of people were cast aside either by deep rooted racism, misguided fears or both.

If the end goal is independence, it would be much better for leaders to talk things out rather than fight, kill innocent lives, and have the same ending. It simply is not effective for all these humans to die when they can use their words to have a conversation with each other. An example of this was in the Indian Independence. Mohandas Gandhi, an Indian activist, led a nonviolent campaign against the British where they boycotted British goods such as salt. At the time, India was a British colony, so they were making money off of the Indian citizens and the goods they made.

Around the world, entire civilizations have been wiped out, because they have not met the standard set by other ethnic groups.
