Whether it is about black v. white education, book smarts v. street smarts, or how education does not mean everything, Ernest J. Gaines novel is bleeding with ways on how education affects the events in the novel. In the 1940s, there was quite a difference between black and white education.
At the beginning, American culture mainly followed the European style. In the late 1700s, American culture began to develop towards Federalism from Revolution.

Awareness programs have been designed and funded by the federal government. Students are counseled for their frustration and all the problems are communicated. However, even these steps have not decreased the incidence to a great extent and the problem could be uprooted completely. According to studies, colleges have to work even harder for solving the issue before getting any significance result in comparison to the present
Placing a political appointee into office would actually help keep agencies accountable for their actions; in addition to helping the needs of the public, as they often hold the appointee accountable because if they decline in succeeding at their job, the public and the media will definitely let them hear about it. Political appointees may have a higher level of education, but their overall skills in management are often beneath them; as they may or may not be experts in their field, and tend to use their position in government for private gain. By having a government official place a political appointee to the federal job of being a director, there is an excessive increase in the rate at which employees leave a

While we may not be fighting the Mexican War or internally debating the issue of slavery today, we are dealing with much bigger defense issues from securing our borders to fighting terrorism and pressing issues of human rights still exist surrounding LGBTQ and other
Racism is a huge problem in our societies currently. We see it everywhere from the news articles on our phones, news stories on our TVś or smart devices and we even see it in our own communities. Which brings me to my next point that although it is not the same ¨racism¨, that we have learned about in our history classes, it still exists because it has evolved and it will continue to to evolve and exist, unless we put an end to all racism. Racism is when someone is judging or putting someone else down who is a different race with the belief that their race is more superior over the others. Putting an end to all racism would not be something that happens by tomorrow or the next day, but with the right people in charge, the right ideas put into action and right attitude, it can happen a lot quicker than people think.
