Rosa Parks was born as Rosa Louise McCauley on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. Growing up with segregation Rosa never thought that she would grow up to be a role model who helped stop segregation. Rosa knew that there was going to be a consequence of her action, but she Would never have guessed she would be the one to start a boycott against segregation. Rosa Parks along with many other people managed to stop segregation for African Americans and many other races.

City of Maycomb is a cruel and harsh place to live, due to the environment that people are racist and thinks that the white people have more power than the black people. Not getting a full equal right is not fair. During the Tom Robinson’s trial, people only said that he was guilty because he was a black man; while Ewell was white. Many black people has thought that it was unfair to not get equal rights, the white people made something called “separate but equal”. Which is impossible to be.
One of the most important relationships humans have is the relationship they have with their mothers. The bond between a mother and her daughter starts from the day she has her baby girl. When a little girl grows up, she idolizes her Mom. She wants to look like her, act like her, and even do exactly what she does. When someone has a positive connection with their mother, they feel like they can open up in any way to her.

Even the teachers expected less of Carson, and got the other kids into trouble for allowing him to be top of the class. Even though this isn’t direct racism it is still an example of how Carson was put down purely because of his race. Carson says, “I’m just dumb…
Ella thinks she has a more important role in the world than teaching. She wanted a place where children could speak freely about racism and discrimination without getting in trouble. Jem and Scout think people are judgemental because of race. “Jem and Scout believed that Tom Robinson would be acquitted, but he was found guilty by the all white jury” ( Magill and Kohler 6594 ). Jem and Scout learn that not all people are prejudiced.
The Deep South made this a dream next to impossible to achieve because it was hard to graduate from high school, improbable to get into a college (most of them were whites only) and unheard of to get respectable employment opportunities. When Richard was working for the white woman’s household, she remarked. “You’ll never be a writer (...) who on earth put such ideas into your (...) head?” (Wright 147) The discrimination is eminent, however, whenever Richard is told that he cannot do something, it does not make him stop.
Mr. Espinosa said that Pete would never find a women, but he does not know this he is making an unfair judgments, which led to his death. • Pauline Rosa: She tried to get her children enrolled in an English-speaking school but they were denied because they were Latino.

An example would be Mayella Ewell. "White people wouldn't have anything to do with her because she lived among pigs; Negroes wouldn't have anything to do with her because she was white"(Lee, 192).

People felt sad for her because her father beat her up, but, the citizens of Maycomb don’t feel bad because she came onto a black
The organization came to be when people didn’t want “undesirable” traits in the U.S. population and tried to get rid of all those traits. Blacks and whites weren’t allowed to marry or have children because black skin color was an “undesirable” trait. Many black men and women were sterilized for this reason and didn’t have a choice. This caused another issue because what determined if someone was black? People had a black and white parents before this law was made.

What makes people unequal to others in their mind? Many think others are unequal because they are simply different from them. The possibilities on being different from another person are almost infinite, but most often, and not limited to, are race, religion, gender, sexuality, or just being an outcast.

Being an immense melting pot is a blessing and a curse; while it creates cultural diversity, it also creates discrimination, which America is notoriously known for.

On November 14, 1960, Ruby Bridges made a change in history for being the first African-American to go to an all-white school in New Orleans. Ruby's teacher, Barbara Henry, reported in the Instructor magazine, "Ruby was an extraordinary little girl. She was a child who exuded, I think, courage. To think that every day she would come to class knowing that she would not have any children to play with, to be with, to talk to, and yet continually she came to school happily, and interested in learning whatever could be offered to her."
