Racism is very different today than in the 1930’s. In class we read the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This book took place in the 1930’s in which almost everyone was racist against blacks. It was considered odd if you treated a black person the same as you would treat a white person. I truly believe we have came a long way with civil rights, but we can still go farther. Even though it may seem nobody is racist, racism is still out in the world today. I think if Harper Lee looked at today she would be impressed to see how far we’ve come but she would tell us to keep coming until nobody racism is out of the world. The other day I was looking at a ESPN and they were talking about racism and sports and showing how we have come along. If you look at basketball for instance, years ago there were hardly any African Americans in the pro and college level, but today it is almost all African Americans. I think for our time we are doing fairly well, but we still need to work on it.
