Segregation

Posted by on in Humanities & Social Sciences

The construction of social and legal practice of dividing people is on the basis of their race and ethnicity in the United States of America. This has been forbidden since the mid 1960s in the States. Throughout America there is obvious disparity amongst the different classes of the society i.e. the lower class and the upper class. These differences are very painful for students who have to undergo the glitches, which comprise of negative effects of the quality of education served to the students. The population of minorities who live in the United States is constantly increasing and their numbers can contribute to the success or the failure of the nation.

In Today’s world where change is constant, where everything is changing so rapidly, why are some of us still stuck with the traditional way of thinking? Why do we have to base giving education to innocent kids who come from different classes of society? No one has any right to take away the opportunity a child deserves regardless of the caste or race he/she belongs to. One’s worth cannot be decided based on the financial status. This disparity has to eradicate from today’s world. It is very important to raise a voice and bring in a change.
To begin with it is very important to spread awareness and talk about this issue. Talking about it will change young minds and reduce the mental difference. Colleges and schools should provide financial help, like scholarships to promote equality. This will also help everyone receive equal opportunities and out shine their own intelligence. No one will be dependent of anyone and his or her potential will reflect. Also the government should fund colleges and schools as and when required in order to promote equality. These are a few essential steps we should take for starters to bring in change.

Looking at the other side, where there is no equality, where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, picture a child working to earn for his/ her family and also studying and working hard to attain good marks. How on earth can a soul who is probably not even eighteen accomplish both the responsibilities? What of the child is bright and brilliant but because of being stuck in the social structure he/she can’t be a brilliant child that he/she probably is. This is where we fail as a system. A kid may be born in any family caste or race; no one has any right to take away the opportunity that a child deserves. Regardless of anything, one’s worth cannot be absolute on the financial status.

The child’s determination allows them to concentrate on college and get a good job, ultimately providing a better life for her children. They can change the world if given the opportunity. Isn't that a future worth fighting for?
