Race Discrimination is a problem in our world for many reason. While many people may say that it this isn’t a problem because dIscrimination/racism could separate people in categories or races.

Race refers to the physical form of some common genetic characteristics of the crowd. This is born, cannot be chosen. While ethnicity refers to the people with the same experience, cultural background or language. The United States as a migrant country, immigration culture, complex skin color, ethnic racial relations are complex. The race of society has been going on for more than half a century. Racism is a self centered attitude, and racial differences determine the history of human society and cultural development. Racial discrimination has always been a serious social problem.

Racial discrimination has become a hot issue in the United States. Protests against the inequality of the court system and the young lives of black youths has sparked a racial divide.

African men, women, and children arrived to the free lands only to work their way out of slavery early on. Until the slave system became more strict, many young african american men and women could pay off their debt to their owners and marry. As the slave system became more strict, the possibility of buying your own freedom was erased. After the Civil War, many issues arose for the former slaves. The political leaders wanted to provide rights to protect the freed slaves, yet the States found loopholes to deny a free black man from being ‘free.’
