Segregation and Discrimination Jonathan Diaz

“The legal battle against segregation is won, but the community battle goes on,” (Dorothy Day).

Despite attempts throughout history to diminish discrimination, it is still a major issue as shown through present day racial discrimination, religious, and gender discrimination.

Racial Discrimination

“It was harder for guests with African-American-sounding names to rent rooms through the site. Several Airbnb users have since shared stories on social media saying they were denied a rental because of their race.” (Benner).

Religious Discrimiantion

“The commission filed a case against Abercrombie, the fashionable clothing retailer, accusing it of discrimination for refusing to hire an 18-year-old Muslim because she was wearing a headscarf," (Greenhouse).

Gender Discrimination

In the past decade, it is proven that women make only 77.5 cents for every dollar that men earn. This is an average 80% of what men earn (Finn and 10 Surprising Statistics on Women in the Workplace).

Martin Luther King once uttered, “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals,” (King).
