Racial inequality hasn’t disappeared throughout the history of America; however, racial inequality has decreased ever since the ‘Jim Crow’ laws. Although, there is people in today’s society where they consider themselves ‘racist’ and want only one race to rule society.

In a country like India where caste distinctions still flourish, where there is no fusion of the various races, where religious distinctions are still violent, where education in its modern sense has not made an equal or proportionate progress among all the sections of the population, I am convinced that the introduction of the principle of election, pure and simple, for representation of various interests on the local boards and district councils would be attended with evils of greater significance than purely economic considerations . . . .The larger community would totally override the interests of the smaller community and the ignorant public would hold Government responsible for introducing measures which might make differences of race and creed more violent than
