Letter to editor

During the 1920’ racism was a large issue among the United States, segregating blacks and whites and even going to the extremes of creating racist Klans. In today’s society racism is still a large issue among our country, segregation not being a problem anymore, clans and racism still does exist. Many trials and riots are still held for this issue of racism in the present time. During the 1920’s, racism was one of the largest issues in the nation, segregating schools and other public establishments. Present day racism is an issue as job opportunities and assumptions of crimes due to racism are still rapid. Although, Racism has decreased through time since the 1920’s, eliminating segregation and most klans. Racism today still remains among some people with ideas of them believing they are superior to other races, eliminating job opportunities and increasing ideas of crime rate, being bias to race.
