Even Famous people were Abused
By: Tyler DiNatale and Dillon Capalongo
The problem of Racism and abuse.
Inequality is a major problem for many innocent people. Many people were judged differently, like women and blacks.
Blacks were treated horribly, and were never respected by other whites. They never got the respect they deserved.
Women were mistreated by men, and were thought as weak and useless. They could not vote, act in the government, and had no rights at all.
Jackie Robinson was black, and hated by others only because of his color. Every game, he would get trash thrown at him and was never liked by anyone, even his own teammates.
HOW DID HE OVERCOME THE MANY CHALLENGES HE FACED?
Jackie was mistreated by thousands of people all because of his color. He overcame the problem by avoiding the many people who were judging him by race. Many people on other teams would even cut Jackie on purpose to make him mad or just even hurt him, but Jackie Robinson did not let them stop him from becoming a great baseball player. Every piece of trash, every mean word, and dirty look he put behind him, and that is what truly made him great.
The problem with Racism and Abuse is still an issue today.
Today, even after what Jackie Robinson and others did to overcome the problem, people are still being abused. In "It's Morning in America or is it?" African Americans are not getting any better after the great depression. There are many who are poor and even homeless. And yet, women are still being abused by men. They still don’t have as many rights as men. and are thought of as weak and useless.
What can we do today to stop abuse?
