Equality Of Opportunities In The US

Decent Essays

Today, the United States has less equality of opportunity than any other place. They have exposed the legend that America is a country where opportunities are unlimited. In the dictionary equal society is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization which aims at sensitizing and informing citizens for sexual equality, equal opportunities, and non-discrimination in all fields of social life. As for me, equal society is when society, as a whole, is able to put differences aside and be able to work together for a common goal that works to better ourselves as individuals and as a group.

Martin Luther King Jr left a note that was a promise in which all African Americans and Americans would be assured “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is clear that America has declined to follow this promise.

Basically, Martin Luther King Jr. is saying that to this day, everything still remains the same. African Americans are still being discriminated and judged for their appearance. Latinos and African Americans still get paid less than whites and Americans are still at a higher level and treated more with respect then Hispanic and African American. Discrimination should not be happening in today’s society, we need to help each other out and support everyone in order to grow.

If he’s president there will be a lot more discrimination and racism. We need people like Martin Luther King that wanted equal rights, not racists people like Donald Trump. If we continue having negative people, then we will never expand. We tend to accept things the way they are for example interracial marriage was not okay before and it was illegal but as time passed it was widely accepted and it was legalized. Now same gender can get married and we see it as normal. If we continue accepting things that should not be permitted like racism and discrimination later on in the future we will find that normal just like everything
