Her mother, Lucille Bridges, thought it was a great opportunity for Ruby to go to a better school than the one she was currently at. But, she must be escorted by Al Butler. Who was a US Marshal---which was proved to be a good idea---since when she arrived at the school, mobs of protesters had formed. They tried their best to get to Ruby, saying racist slurs and keeping their children away from the school. Like having their children learn in the same building as Ruby was horrifying.
Everyone has an opinion and different beliefs on almost every topic, in which one of the most controversial topics is adoption. In adoption, people believe that race matters due to their ethical or cultural beliefs; however race does not matter because every child needs a loving home. Additionally, studies of multiracial families show that kids are more aware of their culture, as well as they are more like the community around them, then their ethnic background. There are many adoption agencies, and others with the beliefs that kids need to be with parents of the same ethnicity because it would provide the child with more cultural awareness, as well as it would prevent children from the danger and backlash they might get from others.

The poem “White Lies” by Natasha Trethewey tells us her story about growing up being biracial. In stanza 1 lines 2-3 it states “I was growing up light-bright, near-white, high-yellow, red-boned.” She could pass as a white girl because she was so lightly complected that people thought she was white.

Lindsey Lohan became a role model all over the world for teenage girls.
In today’s society, more and more kids are getting participation trophies for doing nothing except showing up. Yes it is important to teach kids to do their best, but being awarded just for being as good as you already are doesn't give kids the motivation to make themselves even better. Why would they want to improve if they already have that shiny trophy? I do not believe that participation trophies should be handed out like they are.
People are always treating others differently because they're another race. This movie showed how two different races went from hating to loving each other with some help. So what if you're black, white, or another race, that doesn't mean everyone can't get along. Everyone should be treated the same and should be given the same respect as others. As the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover and treat people the way you want to be

Hollywood has been the most successful place in the film industry thanks in large part to their enormous budgets, a wide range of subjects, engaging stories, and willingness to push the boundaries of social norms. Due to Hollywood’s outreach, their influence can be felt all across the United States, and in many other developed countries. It is for this reason that Hollywood often becomes trapped by their desire for ultimate success, and they begin falling back on the artistic decisions that are considered “safe” and “appropriate” for the mass public. Despite Hollywood’s notoriety, at the end of the day it is a business seeking to make as much money as it can earn with each new project, and for this reason, the “unpopular” or less common characterizations
"Rise of the Strong Female Protagonists - Representation of Women in Contemporary American Cinema" Cinema has always been an integral part of a culture and has been presenting various ideals of the time such as gender roles. American Cinema has been abundant of gender representation and through many years the roles of men and women have been presented according to the formulaic stereotypes.

Some concepts, a most prominent one, coined “whitewashing”, is heavily in films and develops heavy prejudice towards other races aside from the more dominant white population. Whitewashing began during the early development of films across the United States, the castings of white actors and actresses gaining controversy and were heavily criticized.
