Countless types of discrimination are present in society today, however, are the authors of today portraying it correctly in their works?

In the book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain creates many central questions for his reader to consider.

In the story the society has up to 213 Amendments. The laws are used to suppress a particular group of people who would otherwise excel in their everyday lives. The same laws were put in place to protect handicaps and make them feel equal to others. However, while those members are protected others are not so fortunate.

Ten year olds cannot vote. Therefore the right to vote is a civil rights issue because in States that don’t allow it – the majority of the voters are denying something to a minority – creating inequality in the ways that the laws work.

John Adams was not exactly like George Washington, despite working under him for over eight years. Adams first downfall was the Alien and Sedition Acts. These acts were the most bitterly contested acts of our nation yet. Our nation was designed to be a safe place for immigrants and people in general to live- the nation as a whole was built from refugees from England- yet these acts prevented our country from being able to do that. Although he was not perfect, he truly tried to be fair.
Michael Josephson states that “Honesty doesn 't always pay, but dishonesty always costs”. We can choose to be honest telling the truth rather than saying thousand lies to cover back the previous falsehood and keep the relationship between each other last longer. Like the example above, Mrs. Davies feel that Mr. Davies has cheating on her, she might ask him straight forward to lift the doubts if it is just a misunderstand or solve the problems together if Mr. Davies had lied. A study found out men lie six times per day and women are only three times, it is double as often as women, but most of them are white lie such as the husband will say he is not hungry so that his wife no need to cook after work. Human need trust and honesty to maintain the relationship between each other.
Hammurabi’s Code of Justice Have you ever heard the expression, treat others how you want to be treated? Well that's what Hammurabi’s code is all about. Babylonia was ruled by king Hammurabi for 42 years in 1754 BCE. In those years Hammurabi made a set of 282 laws called Hammurabi’s code to create justice and the laws were placed on a steele. Hammurabi's code was just because his purpose was to protect the weak, he made laws about property to protect your house and laws to punish people if they injure you.
From previous knowledge about the society, men had more power than women did. King Hammurabi evidently felt that because of this, he needed to provide a way to protect women from overbearing males. As you read these laws, you come to a few that mention divorce. Apparently this was a huge problem in the Babylonian society, and King Hammurabi wanted to fix it. If a man already had children with a women, he was forbidden to leave her.
