Individuals from all around the globe throughout times past have immigrated to America so they could have the chance to live a free and better life. They arrived with the mentality to work earnestly as well as bring in money for their loved ones, but they were undoubtedly by no means prepared to be confronted with the reality that some people in the U.S. at no time wanted them to arrive in the U.S. in the first place. There was a feeling of anger and even hate steered towards them, and the viciousness of hatred crimes that came along with the racial discrimination spurned these feelings further. A collective way of discerning racism is that of a set of beliefs about the unfairness of races, wherein some are considered inferior to others (Gracia, 2010). Racism predominately happens when a person from one race views another person from a different race in an adverse behavior which can sometimes involve physical and emotional violence.
"E Pluribus Unum"-- from many, one. We are a nation of immigrants, yet still must constantly be reminded of our shared heritage with those currently setting out for America.

DeGagne Hecko per.1A The United States has long been a symbol of freedom and democracy, yet some people find it so hard to gain access and eventually citizenship.

Ena Figueroa Social Psychology Mr. Smith 10 March 2012 The American Dream America is often referred to as a "nation of immigrants" because of our open-door policy toward accepting foreigners hunting their vision of the American Dream. Recently, there has been an appeal by some politicians and citizens toward creating a closed-door policy on immigration. They are arguing that immigrants "threaten" American life by creating unemployment by taking jobs from American workers, using much-needed social services, and intruding on the "American way of life."
