Racism

A heroic Campaign of the 20th Century .The civil right movement. The Great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. quoted famous word of the late Thomas Jefferson from 1776…These words rang out before millions of African Americans in Washington D.C. in 1963.”We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”. Declaration of Independence defining the promise of America–freedom and equality for all for second class citizens as well…yet throughout slavery African Americans participated in the Abolitionist movement and joined the Union army during the Civil War that moved the country to extend equality to African Americans Amendment 13th, Outlawing Slavery,14th Equal Protection then the 15th Right to Vote.Though this may be however white people (i.e.) such as the Ku Klux Klan advocates whom enforced segregation of the races. White people practiced and promoted white hostility towards African Americans. They produced massive ghettos in almost every major city segregating African Americans. Treated them differently because of their skin color which determined their social status. Whites have preconceived notion about African Americans from gangster rap music, crime, you name it , if it is considered not of “Societies Norm” they do it. According to them.Whites think of us as less desirable as well as less intelligent. Fifty years later ,look, even now heyday of racial segregation and racism, next chapter for sure…still so vividly pronounced. Thank God for people who refuse to accept this unacceptable behavior from Whites and foresaw the future of African American not Bleak…Just to name a few Marcus Garvey, Booker T Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. and so forth. These African Americans emphasized that African Americans are here to stay and would fight for their freedom.  Equally important 1968, successfully fought for “Fair Housing Act” which declined the ghettos slightly. Segregation in the 60ies was unfair and enormous afflicted upon  Americans however they survived. Today’s ghettos have depopulated. Still, too many of African Americans are stigmatized and from that are denied the same equalities into the work force, education, and bottom line mere respect to achieve social means. They never had adequate revenue to support  and notable creativity and contributions as a result white people cleverly absconded African Americans thus gained acknowledgement.
