Acceptance for All People
Judge people by what they can become.
About 10% white and blacks were about 20% unemployed
In 1970 the high school drop out rate for blacks was also twice as much then the white population
13% white and 27% black drop outs
What has become of the civil rights movement
Racism is still a very real thing in this nation that still needs to be resolved
Just like North and South Korea there war only ended in a ceasefire.
The civil rights movment only ended the problem at hand but didnt compinsate for the emotional state of the nation.
Like the article said, "We seem to live under an uneasy truce."
A start to a solution
Racism isn't only between white and black people
I think that a common misconception is that every Arab is a terrorist
We should not discriminate them for trying to make a better life in America the best country on earth
Even though this country has suffered from many terrorist attacks this doesn't mean that every Arab is a terrorist
In my opinion the only way to completely rid this country of racism is to have have both sides recognize there faults and have empathy and compassion on one another, as well as forgiveness.
Here are some was to help stop racism
- Don't say anything racist yourself
- Stand up to those being harassed based on race
- Help spread the word on peace between races
