Murphy 2007 article, “The Upside of Income Inequality” in The American, they claim “Income inequality in China substantially widened, particularly between households in the city and the countryside, after China began its rapid rate of economic development around 1980” (581).

The ongoing problem of discrimination due to appearance has affected many, specifically black people. One of the most unusual things with no point or definition. This prejudice against black people has caused much unification within the United States.

Democracy, a word that suggests inclusiveness, but not practiced during Langston Hughes’s time. This inequality is what drove Hughes mastery of words.

Racism is one of the most important social issues in the world, it seems to be trending in social network more often, especially when they say blacks can be racists as well. It is true black people and minorities can be racists, however they cannot carry out acts of racism because they do not have the opportunities or resource to practice racism in the manner white Americans have in the past and present. The issue at hand is that blacks can be racists it has affected millions of people worldwide.

“For example, seven-in-ten blacks and about one-third of whites (29%) say blacks are treated unfairly as whites in the court”. (Pew Research Center p.1).

Something else that helped this that was said in the article is that the world with racism today is better than it was five years ago, and it is to say that Obama was the one who we need to thank for that.
Racism has existed since humans have stepped foot on Earth; clans were formed based on hair, eye, and skin color.

One of the biggest Hispanics I look up to as inspiration and encouragement is Sonya Sotomayor, the Supreme Court justice. She proved to me that not only can Hispanics can succeed but that they can also excel in politics. As a child my grandfather always told me to work hard because if you don’t you will end up staying in the same place you are hoping for something better instead of achieving it. What he told me that day will continue to inspire me for the rest of my life and work hard even if you’re put down for being Hispanic or just undervalued because of the color of my skin. If I let that bother me and stop me, then I am not working hard enough to achieve what I have set out to do in life which is to show people that Hispanics can do anything just as good as anyone else and that just because we came from places of lower income doesn’t mean we don’t have what it takes to succeed where some have
1) I could make a long list of what I accomplished in my life such as winning Most Valuable Player award, but there is one thing that I prize the most and made these accomplishments possible: Moving to America. 2) moving to here and losing my mom marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, it made me to understand the world better, it made me to appreciate the god for what I have and not for the things that I don’t. It is such a vivid memory that I have carried with myself till now, memory of when I was in Iran’s airport and was talking to my mother face to face for the last time. Her words changed a person who I was before and made me to keep moving forward, even though I lost her and would never see and hear her voice again. She said
Hello Prof. Manock and fellow Classmates, Namely, prejudices are formed from one’s upbringing, family background, influences of the media as well as, world history. As, we all know African Americans have been a target of prejudices as well as being discriminated against since they were stolen from Africa, this is a historical fact as well as, several movies such as Roots. As my own personal opinion, Donald Trumps is also recreating this act of cruelty with the Hispanic community.
My central topic is Raid Alerts Wanted to Warn Undocumented Immigrants With an APP. Because this is such an important topic at the moment, Celso Mireles a 27 year old developer who spend over 25 years undocumented in the United States decided to create an Application to provide crowd sourced and verified warnings about immigration raids so undocumented individuals can be alerted and avoid them. Celso Mireles started the app during the Obama administration because he deporting more people than any president in history, but the recent raids motivated its developer to pick it up again especially since Homeland Security immigration raids totaling more than 680 arrests lately. The narrator has many questions, but the most important one is; how can he help millions of people that are afraid for their life to not get kicked out from America. Because Celos Mireles had to live his life in fear of the immigration, he has an extra motivation for beginning this project, which can lead to helping many people around the world that are still living in fear day by day.
