Racism is a huge problem around the world, nearly everywhere people are racist and that is a huge problem. People are not born racist it is taught. Everyone is equal and should not be shamed on their skin color. Discrimination goes for all races not just African Americans but Asian people, Mexicans etc. The definition of racism is “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race”. So that basically means that people feel superior over certain people because if the color of the skin. And in America everyone is equal but still there are racists who think they are more important or they are “right”, “more important” and shouldn’t be equal with anyone unless they have the same skin color as them and think the same beliefs as them. Racism goes as long ways, it was started even before egyption times. But it was culturally invented in the 20th century. This has caused many conflict between races and was tried to be dealt with by North America and South America by splitting up black and white people because those are the two main races that strongly dislike each other. Racism goes both ways it isn’t blacks don’t like whites or whites don’t like blacks they both do not like each other. Historically races that have lower status rates have been put at lower jobs. And dominant races have higher status jobs where they make more money and isn’t as hard. People with low status are being called racial slurs on a daily. Those with high status jobs are making more money don’t really deal with conflict between others as much and dont hear racial slurs be used negatively towards them. Racial issus are a huge impact or where a huge impact not as much nowadays but it still is a problem but based on people’s races they are not aloud certain jobs. Racism was at the heart of North American slavery and the colonization and empire-building activities of western Europeans, especially in the 18th century. Slaves were used for dirty work, build things, farming, clean things. And they didn’t make any type of money they had very little clothes and they didn’t have any rights. I think slavery is very wrong and is still a problem to this day all around the world and should be stopped or people should be punished because there is no reason for racism. Everyone is equal no matter skin color or your beliefs no ons should be treated differently because of their religion or there race.
