Racial inequality is happening in schools, when police are on searches for suspect, and health care. By all means, U.S. citizens still live in a society where racial injustice is still prevalent; therefore, some people are denied equal rights based on race.

Our kids get bullied at school because of the color of their skin. Our people also get discriminated by the local doctors knowing that black people don’t have the knowledge to know anything about any injuries or diseases. Some things need to change to make this country great. Our race has been working in agriculture ever since they brought us here and we still continue to do so as it is shown on The pie chart on Source #3. It shows where and on what our race has been working, “55% in Agriculture, 20% in Domestic, 10% in Manufacturing and Trades, and only 5% in Professions.” Our people need to start going out there and start working in professions or somewhere where they earn more money.
