In Walter Mosley 's fictional short story, "Equal Opportunity" (1995), he describes employment discrimination through the character of Socrates Fortlow, an African American ex-convict attempting to find employment. Socrates lives in an abandoned building in Los Angeles neighborhood called Watts. He has been out of “prison eight years, fifty-eight years old, and ready to start life over again,” (Mosley 1). Socrates faces several conflicts, attempting to gain employment, because of his (1) age, (2) race, and (3) where he lives. He has to travel far to look for a job because everyone on his side of town, especially, Crenshaw and Washington, both store owners in Watts, knew that he collected bottles and cans for money and “they would not hire
Decades ago, children of various races could not go to school together in many locations of the United States. School districts could segregate students, legally, into different schools according to the color of their skin. The law said these separate schools had to be equal. Many schools for children that possessed color were of lesser quality than the schools for white students. To have separate schools for the black and white children became a basic rule in southern society. After the Brown vs. Board of Education case, this all changed.

In the Oubre v. Entergy Operations, Inc. Case, Dolores Oubre the plaintiff was a scheduler at power plant in Killona, Louisiana, which is run by Entergy Operations, Inc. (the defendant). In 1994, Oubre’s employer gave her two options: she can either improve her job performance or accept a severance pay. While accepting the severance package, Oubre signed a document that released her employer Entergy of all claims. Although the employer Entergy Operations was released of all claims, it failed to meet specific standards or requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), as decided or set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA). In procuring the release, Entergy failed to comply in at least three respects with the requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act: It did not (1) give Oubre enough time to consider her options, (2) give her seven days to change her mind, or (3) make specific reference to ADEA claims (Twomey, 2013, p. 548).

A little girl is sitting in a classroom where everyone is wearing white converse, however she is wearing black. Everyone is ignoring her, even the teachers. What is the difference between neglecting people because of the color of their skin or their shoes? Nobody should have to experience any type of judgment. The Civil Rights Act changed this nation immensely. In addition, the act not only almost completely ended racism, but stopped discrimination against religion, gender, and national origin. Many cases led to the Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Movement had many powerful cases: Dred Scott v. Stanford, Shelly v. Kraemer, and Loving v. Virginia.
Racial discrimination is still a concept seen in the modern day. Racial discrimination is the unequal treatment towards a group based off of their race, color, or ethnicity. “A 2001 survey, for example, found that more than one-third of blacks and nearly 20% of Hispanics and Asians reported that they had personally been passed over for a job or promotion because of their race or ethnicity (Schiller 2004),” writes Devah Pager and Hana Shepherd in their article The Sociology of Discrimination. This proves that racial discrimination is still present during the process of employment. Citizens not only experience discrimination in the work field, they also experience it at school, stores, movies, theaters, or while seeking health care.

U.S., and Batson v. Kentucky are just a few of many. Cases like these, the situations in Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore, Maryland, and Sanford, Florida, have all occurred because of racial discrimination.
