Racism

Most People in the world today would say that there is still racism. Racism affects people every day. Whether it’s a joke that seems harmless or it’s a group of people separated from other groups. There is many towns and cities that are somewhat segregated.

Some of the things that the (KKK) did to African Americans were torturing them by killing, beating and verbally abusing African Americans.

In the past African Americans have had very limited rights. Rich white men of the south used African Americans as slaves. They were treated as property and not human beings and some people think that is how it should...
