Black History Month In the Newsweek magazine, Raina Kelley discusses in her article titled “The End of Black History Month.” Kelley explains how Morgan Freeman was against Black History Month because it was crammed into one single month, as if the contribution of black Americans was being demeaned. Even though the divisions between blacks and whites aren’t as cavernous as they used to be, there are still racial issues going around in America. Kelley defends Black History month by sharing the origins of how it became to be celebrated. It began to be celebrated the second week of February encompassing Frederick Douglass’ and Lincolns’ birthdays. Black History is a reminder of the work that still needs to be done here in America between all races.
There is harsh punishment for everything you do to try to prevent from being equal to others. The general has to control what people need such has how much handicap bags you need or what kind of mask the person should wear. Third is the way of life they have to live in their world with all the laws of equality. The whole purpose of this is so that not one person is better than another and if you do not listen you will suffer harsh punishment for it. The way of life is very strict with all the amendments so it does not allow anyone to have any fun.

That’s why you had black kids attend the high school made for black children and white kids attending the schools that accommodated for white people. Did you ever notice that the schools for the white kids were much nicer than the schools made for the black children? That’s what is wrong with the white hunter. He believes that black people aren’t worthy of the things white people are worthy of. He puts the icing on the cake when proving that he is a racist person because he makes miss Phoenix feel as if she’s worth nothing when he so rudely holds the gun in her face and simply asks her, “‘Doesn’t this gun scare you?’”.
Many people claim that this distinction in race is necessary because the society in which we live is still racist and only parents of the same ethnic group would be able to give enough cultural support to the children. On the other hand this distinction on races can be considered racist for some people and it could contribute to create a racist society. In the section called “Room for Debate” of the New York Times website, we can find a debate showing different arguments about this issue. In the depate there are three participants with very clear and strong positions. One of the participants is Kevin Noble, author of the article “Not a Deciding Factor but not to be ignored”.
Color Blind Racism In Bonilla-Silva's piece the The Central Frames of Color-Blind Racism he explains in detail the four frames of color-blind racism: abstract liberalism, naturalization, cultural racism, and minimization of racism. Bonilla-Silva believes that although most whites have abandoned the idea that blacks are in part to blame for their own oppression and lower class status, racism still exists. Color-blind racism has replaced the formerly established idea of racism, but this does not mean hope for the oppressed. Bonilla-Silva does agree that minorities are much better off today, but he believes that because blacks have become so far behind in the order of society it might be impossible for them to catch up to the whites. Color- blind racism is contemporary way of thinking about race that justifies and rationalizes racial inequalities.
What I mean by that is! Racism has decreased to the point where it is not done as much in the open, bluntly. It has evolved and increased in a more indirect manner, but is no way gone away. Racism in the workplace can be considered a trend because it has happened for years and if we don’t work at stopping it now it will only get worse. This country’s history of discrimination against African Americans suggests that justice demands effective policies to protect them from human rights.
This is definitely not true because there are many Asian women dating different races of men, but society does not see this. I am not saying that people should only interracial date, but I believe everyone should be open to interracial dating. Racism is still prevalent in this world and the best way to fight it and eventually kill it is to interracial date. Certain parts of society will frown upon it at first, but eventually it will be accepted just like a lot of other things that was deemed “wrong” in society was accepted later on. For example, blacks and many other races of people were eventually deemed equal to white people by society’s
Another case about Asian was Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts with the logo “Two Wongs make it White” and the Two Wongs implied the yellow face working in laundry as cheap labors. The differences between west and east were ordinary, while Western cultures are perceived or believed capable of change and modernization, Asian cultures are considered (in contrast) ancient (Rosen). White always had the privilege thought to despise the Asian culture and wanted to civilize them. The simple racism often came from the privilege thought and resulted in the stereotypes of Asian. Meanwhile, Asian as a ethnic race in American society, were lack of enough desire to correct the stereotypes and they didn’t have too much political right, only to know to work hard, study hard and come back home.
June 3rd 2012 CJA/344 Racial Disparity on the application of the Death Penalty The United States criminal justice system is believed to protect and change people. In the early years of United States, racism was a huge issue and it has slowly been disappearing throughout the years. Unfortunately some people are not willing to change their beliefs about races. People that grew up not guided or taught the importance of all people are created equal have negative feelings toward others who do not share the same skin color, religion, and gender. People may believe that people who are different to them should not have the same rights or believe that they are beneath them.
