The African American culture has been a very important part of American History, yet it is constantly being overlooked from the American education programs. In Cole’s essay she pushes this issue and illustrates the bias on the black culture. She summarizes Black Studies in the term of five different challenges which include what is taught, to whom and by whom it is taught, how it is taught and why it is taught. These challenges explain the disregard of the Black Studies. It really intrigues me to see how the essay illustrates how much the African American culture is ignored in the education system.
Hispanics also believe that their employers in the community do not treat them fairly and do not see them as equals in the community. They fill that the community discriminates against them, with racial slurs” such as your nothing but a stupid Mexican or wet back” This cause's the Hispanic community to withdraw from society and form a community within a community which they think is also another form of discrimination.

She decides to not give them a victory, which have totally embarrasses the Gamemakers, or even the entire Capitol. “[F]rantic voice” and “shouts above them” used ironic tone to show the atmosphere, and the Gamemakers are anxious about this unusual action. If Katniss and Peeta can not survive until the end, she wants the Gamemakers to pay for it. For their death, and for this cruel game that they make. She shows they will not do what the Gamemakers want.
This made them continue fighting to have equality. After African Americans received their social and political equality, they were still treated unfairly to some of society. African Americans were portrayed as lazy, ignorant, very shiftless, which is why mill owners preferred white woman and children rather than blacks. Segregation was founded all through out the south and the civil rights of blacks were restricted. Unfortunately the majority of blacks were tied to limited labor choices.
In her article The Case for Race, Candace Coleman mentioned about the discrimination, which made for minorities in all sides of social life, as a black American in June 4, 2003 in Wiretap internet source. In her article, firstly she criticize the unequal treathment in collages and universities as a person in minority. She talks about the discrimination for Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans. Moreover, she criticize the Constitutions’ color-blind document is not clearly ensure the equality between those minorities and Whites and Asians. We can understand for her words that she has concerns about being Black and what people says behind her back and like all other Black people she has thoughts about it is hard to appliying to colleges, univesities and certain jobs.
For example, a black and a white both went into an interview, the white tended to get the job, although the black had a higher education. There was also discrimination among workers. Whites felt uncomfortable and threatened working with blacks and it ended up in violence towards blacks with beatings and such. This shows the war is not a turning point as the economic gain that blacks made was negated by the violence and discrimination blacks faced in the work place. Furthermore, when blacks went into the war, they experienced severe mistreatment and racial discrimination, were given substandard tools, clothing and social services.
Black women know the experience of living in an oppressed community. They know their communities are both underserved by the police and at the same time are subject to excessively domineering police actions. This results in large scale arrest and incarceration of black men and other men of color. Black women feel the effects of racism on their community and the economic consequences of racism, not only for themselves, but for their men as well. Many black women, even those experiencing violence at the hands of black men, will try to avoid subjecting black men to the possibility of law enforcement oversight or control.

Society in general is not willing to help criminals get jobs, and homes.
Chicano Resistance In the United States only a few people are aware of the central role that Mexican Americans have to play to fight against racism. United States has been the land for opportunities, but because of color, race and creed Mexicans have been discriminated against, and their opportunities in the social and educational economy are been limited. The origins of Mexican American inequality in the United States can be attributed to the legacy of conflict left behind during the Great Migration. When the Mexican territory became part of the United States it created conflict amongst the Mexican citizens that where already living in those areas. Overnight, they became strangers in what was once their home, consequently
For example, after the post nuclear holocaust, the Waknuk community were “afraid” of the change in the community, so they treated badly anyone who looked different. As a result of the oppression forced upon coloured people stifled their human spirit. This was demonstrated both in the book and historically in America.
