All men are created equal.”   We are “endowed by the creator with certain inalienable rights”.    This is what the Declaration of Independence says but  for 200 years Americans have been fighting for the protection of these rights. Almost 100 years after the Declaration of Independence was written slavery was finally outlawed and African Americans were given citizenship with the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.  It took 100 more years for progress to be made in society.

Brown v. Board of Education  was a very important United States Supreme Court case in 1954.

” The Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for blacks and white students to become unconstitutional. This case brought up the case of Plessy v. Ferguson.    Brown v. Board of Education 1954, is now acknowledged as one of the greatest Supreme Court decisions of the 20th century.  It unanimously held that the racial segregation of children in public schools violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

I have seen racism still now in these days but I think  it is less than back then. How could other human beings discriminate people of color?  I have never and will never discriminate a black or any colored people. We all are humans, we all are equal.
