Blog #3 Racial Inequality

Racial inequality is a major problem in the world today. Although it has got better than the past, it is still an issue that many people face in their lives. Back in the day racial inequality was much worse. Black people weren’t treated as equal to white people. They had to sit in the back of the bus and weren’t allowed to sit in the front, if they did they would be arrested. They weren’t allowed to be in the same schools, restaurants, drink out of the same water fountains, and were treated as slaves and had to work for the white people. Many people have tried to make a difference and end this issue of racial inequality. Some of these people include Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., W.E.B. Dubois, and many more. Rosa Parks was a black women who was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white man. Martin Luther King, Jr. made a speech saying that he believed one day all people would be treated as equals. These people made a difference and luckily racial inequality has got better.

I believe all people should be treated as equal. It doesn’t matter if you are white, black, yellow, blue, red, whatever your skin color is, you are still a human being. We all should be able to work in the same place, learn in the same schools, sit where ever we want on the bus. Things have changed for the better but more can still be done. Everyday i hear people say the N word or once in a while you hear someone was killed because of their skin color. The only way for racial inequality to stop is for you to make a difference like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. and stand for what you believe in.

  1. I agree, we have come a long way from racial inequality in America thanks to the efforts of the people you have mentioned and many more. However racial discrimination still exists in our society and it is the responsibility of the present generation to ensure that we eliminate it.

  2. I can’t agree more with both of you, when people say racism doesn’t exist I believe it still does. Racism has significantly evolved since slavery but it is still a problem that blacks and immigrants still face even if it’s not as obvious as it once was. Thankfully there were people who believed in finding justice as mentioned above. Maybe I’m pessimistic but I don’t know if racism will ever really disappear.

  3. I definitely agree that even though we have a very long way since the days of Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks, there is still racial discrimination and racism in our society. Whether its our judgements of others, stereotyping, or just what comes out of our mouths, our society will never be perfect. Yet, with each day our society will definitely progress.

  4. I agree. It’s extremely sad to think that even with all our history and all the progress that has been made overtime, some people just still don’t get it. Racism prevails though it may not be displayed as clearly as it was back in the day. People continue to hate one another based on the color of skin and it makes you wonder if things will ever truly change.

  5. I agree with you. Even though these days people claim not to be racist, you know deep down racism is still occurring. Maybe not as much as it did back in the day, but don’t you think the past should have altered history to get rid of racism?
