Does segregation still exist?
The Civil Rights Era legally ended racial segegation, but segregation still exists today in a variety of ways. Segregation is exists in regards to socio-economic status, marriage, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and many more. Some say our recent election showed some signs of segregation because it seemed to become black vs. white. The cartoons below show visual representations of segregation that we see today. Just as the Civil Rights Activists pushed for equality of the races, it is our responsibility to see that no one else is discriminated against. We should not stop with desegregating the races, we have to push farther and farther until we achieve equality amongst of all our citizens, Is this impossible? Slaves thought it would be impossible to ever be freed. We have the power. Power to the people!
