How discrimination shaped America in the past
Martin Luther King was a big part of the discrimination against African Americans. He fought for them to be equal and changed history. Also in the early 1900's there was discrimination about the immigrants. People in America though some were unskilled and were coming to take there work. People like Martin helped these problems and that is why America is like this today

Discrimination currently in America
Also Donald Trump has been very popular these past months because of his run for presidency. He was sued in the 1970's for not renting to African Americans and he has been targeting Obama lately. Just the other day he was talking to a black reporter and said "I know you are a big fan of Obama" just because the man was black. Also last week he targeted Muslims saying “our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.” He was saying how he didn't want Muslims in America. Discrimination is still going o in America and even though people try to help stop it, it still continues.
Discrimination in the world currently
Its not just the discrimination against Muslims in the world. People discriminate against homosexuals a lot. In Russia the president proposed a law that anyone who promotes homosexuality will go to jail. In Uganda they have been discussing a bill since 2009 that would prohibit and penalize any homosexual behavior and punish offenders with life in prison or death.
Judging a book by its cover
People judge each other in our school all the time. We judge on who hangs out with who and what clothes people wear and most of time we just judge on something we heard about the person. We don't even know if half the stuff bring said about them is true. People walk by each other in the hallways and don't even bother to say hi but judged just from what they see.
