Current Events: Racism in America Today

February 6, 2012 by sarahdsmith94 · No Comments · Uncategorized

When may people in America hear the word racism they think of people being judged by they color of there skin or their religous views. Many people also think that their is no or very little racism in America today, but really its just as bad today as it was 20 years ago. Sure today people today see African Americans as equals to white Americans. African Americans can now get any job that a white person can get right? Well that might be true. People also think that they aren’t racist, but everyone is prjudice against something. This could be anything from judging someone because of what they are wearing, who they hangout with, or how smart someone is. I work in a shoe store and we are toldwe we start if someone comes in that doesn’t speak English, or they aren’t dresses evey nice, or that have really big bags with them we have to “follow” them around to make sure they aren’t going to steal anything. If any white well dressed person game in we wouldn’t give them a second look.
