essay on how racism is good
La capacidad de los radares meteorológicos para detectar la lluvia ya era conocida en los años 40 (ver Figura 1.0). Su desarrollo inicial se produjo durante la segunda guerra mundial tras la invención del magnetrón de resonancia, con el que fue posible emitir una cantidad considerable de potencia a unas longitudes de onda de varios centímetros.

personal disagreement on the issue of reverse racism. I have come across multiple occasions in which members of the dominant culture allegedly state that they have experienced cases of reverse racism, which can be defined as the situation in which a dominant racial or social group of people are discriminated against. And after a long period of deliberation, I have yet to come to a sensible conclusion that an existence of such a situation as reverse racism is possible. However, I feel as though some
Racism has always been and will remain and is still a topic that raises major debates and discussions. The issue of racism in society is often discussed with respect to a wide range of issues such as sports, workplace, politics, school and so on. Most people do not realize how much racism goes on in our daily life and if they do realize it they do not care enough to do anything about it. In a world with different skin, hair, noses, and just appearance in general, Racism is a big part of our everyday
This essay named Obama. Written by the American author and comedian David Sedaris, casts light on the blurred line between racism and being race conscious, stereotypes and prejudges, and his experience with it on his book tour around Europe at the time of president Obama’s election. Sedaris also tries to prove how despite the general opinion, Europe might actually be more racist than the United States of America. Repeatedly throughout the essay, Sedaris talks about the Europeans thinly veiled
To Kill a Mockingbird Argumentative Essay In our society, we are all judged and discriminated based on the minority of race, class and gender. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird follows the childhood of Jean Louise, or “Scout”, Finch in the 1930’s. One of the most significant events in the plot is the case of Tom Robinson, an African American man accused of raping 19 year old Mayella Ewell. Scout’s father Atticus Finch was Tom’s attorney and brought strong evidence to prove he was innocent, but

Michelle Obama is known for many things- being the most educated first lady, leading a campaign to encourage healthy living for children, and having wonderful arms. One of her most impactful quotes relates to her status as the first and only African American first lady, and it is that “every day, I wake up in a house that was built by slaves” (Waxman). She succinctly describes the American story of racism, and that even though slavery and segregation have been abolished, this country is not in the clear yet. People of color can claw their way to the top in society, but the fact that she is the first person of color to be the first lady demonstrates the difficulties that twenty-first century America has put in place. Racism still exists in modern America because it has a long-standing history that many choose to ignore, and there are systems in place that disproportionately affect people of color.
America still has a problem with racism in the twenty-first century because it is an integral part of America’s history, and that is hard to leave behind. This country was founded on the land of Native Americans and the backs of Africans. Europeans so resolutely believed that those who were not white were savage and animal-like that they remorselessly abused them. Even though the founding fathers claimed to be starting a better, freer country, they decided black people equaled only three-fifths of a white person. This was not an issue specific to the early years of America and went on for decades. Unapologetic, overt racism is what America has grown up on, and it is not easily weaned of it. When reflecting on history, people typically only think of white triumphs. White people discovered America, white people created a grand new government, white people fought wars and won land. Many Americans see the end of slavery as the end of racism, and while that was of course a step in the right direction, that was not enough. Chinese immigrants seeking work and a new life were met with a ban against them, and Native Americans were slaughtered while their assailants received medals of honor (Richardson). Racism is ingrained in this country, and that is part of why it still exists. America would not be what it is without it, but people do not like to recognize that. It is easy to imagine that it is something of the olden days, but lynchings were still going on in the past one hundred years, and the Ku Klux Klan is still active to this day (Detrow). The problem is not just that America is so inextricably linked to racism, it is that Americans choose to deny it. Recognizing America’s racist past is the first step to ending it. When people say that Confederate generals are American heroes, or that Muslim Americans must be connected to terrorist groups, they are perpetuating a culture that America should be trying to distance itself from. It is made worse when there are systems put in place in America that only further racist ideals and keep those sentiments alive.
Racism in America is institutionalized and very difficult to put an end to when it is keeping people of color down. Simply acknowledging racism is not enough to stop it. Black Americans are more likely than white Americans to end up in prison, and Latina women make on average fifty-four cents to every white man’s dollar (Bonczar, Allen; “The Wage Gap”). Because people do not learn about America’s history, and their racist beliefs are not challenged, they are able to discriminate against others. Those in power control who they hire and who can get away with what, and this inevitably leads to problems. People of color are helpless in stopping it because these systems are designed to prevent them. The war on drugs, for example, has led to a higher incarceration rate for African Americans, even though their rate of selling and using drugs is similar to that of white people (“Race and the Drug War”). Though slavery and segregation are over, people of color still have trouble competing, and are judged for what seems like incompetence. Because of white people’s privilege in society, they do not see how unfair the playing field is, and often ridicule people of color for being unable to achieve as much as them.
Americans have come a long way from selling black people like animals and putting Japanese Americans into internment camps. Sadly, racism did not die with these horrible examples. Videos circulate of black teenagers being beaten by police officers and people just sigh and say they probably deserved it (Stelloh, Tracy). Neo-nazis march in Charlottesville, declaring that “Jews will not replace us” (Glanton). Not only is the Ku Klux Klan still around, but they have endorsed the President of the United States (Detrow). White people need to admit that this is a problem and make an effort to change it. No one really believes that all white people are racist, but all white people benefit from a racist society, and that is wrong. White people can face other problems- discrimination based on gender or sexuality, financial issues, and mental illness- but being white undeniably gives them a leg up. A lack of understanding about history and deeply-rooted institutionalized racism has kept racist ideals alive in this country. The American education system should reflect the history of all of its people, not just its white people. Citizens should be critical of the prison industrial complex, or the dilapidation of certain neighborhoods, and should encourage their government representatives to do the same. It is shameful that racism is still so widespread in America, but speaking out against it and being politically active, even if it is embarrassing or intimidating, is the only way to truly fight it. Racists should not feel comfortable speaking up about their racism. They have freedom of speech, but everyone else has freedom of speech to tell them that they are wrong. If someone is being hateful and discriminatory that should not be tolerated, because though that might be how America started out, that is not what it should be today.
