The Impact Of Racism In America

Being different is something that people in society do not understand, and it frightens them. Society has standards and expects something out of us all. Racism is one of the main argued topics about “being different”. Racism has been something that goes way back, and has been the reason for many laws. From the slave days, the KKK, Martin Luther King, all the way up to today, racism unfortunately still exists today. Although there have been laws made, bringing about an impact, it still continues.
