How discrimination changed America

By Jonathan Ambler


In the past (1900- 2000), African Americans have been discriminated against. They weren't aloud to go to certain places. Women have been discriminated against as well. Discriminating people has not had a positive effect on life today.

Rosa Parks

In 1955 Rosa Parks sat on the bus in the front of the "colored" section. When the "white" section became full, the bus driver told her to move to the back of the bus but she refused. She didn't move an inch. She was okay with the police arresting her.

Discrimination in the world.

In Iraq the group called Isis is throwing gay people off the side of buildings to their deaths. Isis also kills people for not being muslim.

Why people have preconceptions of others.

In the past people were very racist towards African Americans, so the ideas travel down through children. People also find humor in making fun of people.
