The First Racial Issues Of America

Decent Essays
What I would like to investigate about the course theme of “America” two major issues I will consider. The first racial issues second obesity. We all know the issues when it comes to these two topics especially here in America. The biggest part about racial is the class inequalities and the injustice that is going on today. Not only with black people also immigrants, until we don’t apply what Martin Luther King said in his speech at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963 he said, “When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” Another quote that really I could say that apply more to the poor people with no type of power is this one also from Martin Luther King he says, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Furthermore, lets mention a little about obesity how many children’s are obese, because of all the unhealthy food that they eat. Many want to blame obesity on the fast food restaurant, which to me they are not responsible for everything that has to do with people been obese. Why I say that well, lets say if people will cook and eat more healthy food, and buy less junk food obesity wont be a big issue.
