Discrimination in many forms has been an epidemic for our great country. As an African American female I have two characteristics that would classify me as a meager possession, an inanimate object. I strongly believe the world is better than it was fifty years ago; predominantly due to our progress as a nation, from the civil rights movement era to laws in place for racial prejudice experienced amongst minorities. Year 1964 marks exactly fifty ago year’s marks four years before the end of the African-American Civil Rights Movement. There is civil unrest apparent discrimination is prevalent, race is the only demarcation between what is tolerable and what is not. Global segregation against African-Americans was constitutionalized such as voting right restrictions. America has made significant progress since then; scraping away the ‘whites only’ sign. To adamantly argue that the year 1964 was better than 2014 seems imprudent. In present time discrimination is now labeled as a hate crime and is punishable by law. America still has flaws, but there has been a lot of progression over the last 50 years. As a female I know have the right to challenge a job field that is dominated by males. Fifty years ago I was limited to being a secretary, house wife, or a maid. Now I have the choice to have a career not a job.
