One World, Many Colors Racism was a serious problem in the early days, back when the nation was first formed and slavery was an acceptable, rampant institution. People in the US want to forget about racism. They don’t won’t to talk about it, bring it up, deal with it, nor think about it. They want to tell themselves that racism was something that happened in the distant past. Racism is an act of discrimination, disenfranchisement, and segregation. Discrimination is the prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things. Especially on the ground of race, age, or sex. Race discrimination involves treating someone unfavorable because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or facial features). Race discrimination can also be involved by treating someone unfavorable because the person is married to a person of a certain race or color or because of a person’s connection with a race organization or group. It’s unlawful to harass a person because of the person’s race or color. Also having a certain religion is a type of discrimination regarding to having certain religious beliefs. Religious discrimination can be involved by treating someone differently because that person is married to an individual of a particular religion. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, but also others who have religious moral beliefs. The Voting Right act of 1965 protected almost every American against racial discrimination in voting. In those years, African Americans in the South faced tremendous obstacles to voting, including poll taxes, and literacy tests. As a result, very few African Americans were registered voters. In 1964, numerous demonstrations were held, and the violence erupted and brought renewed attention to the issue of voting rights. The Voting Right Act law also protects the voting right of many people who have limited English skills. In 1965 Congress passed the Voting Rights Act, where a movement committed to securing equal voting rights for African Americans. The Voting Rights bans all kinds of racial discrimination in voting. For years, many states had laws on their books that served only to prevent minority citizens from voting. Although we have made significant gains in voting rights, discrimination at the polls persists today and cannot be dismissed as a relic past. In 1896…
Intelligence one or many?
Intelligence is one of the most controversial issues in the field of psychology; to this day researchers still are unable to find a clear cut definition for intelligence, and still can’t agree on whether intelligence is one thing or many.
There are two opposing theories that try to explain intelligence; the one general intelligence theory, and the multiple intelligences theory. These two schools of thought disagree on the nature of intelligence, supporters of the one general…

people from different sides of the globe, we're also coming into contact with different languages. Should you not happen to be familiar with at least one other language, this barrier can destroy a large portion of the possibilities technology provides for us today; to connect with people from all over the world. I therefore believe that learning at least one other language is a vital skill in this day and age.
Language barriers can isolate you from the people around you, making it impossible to exchange…

There are many smokers in the world today, and many are discussing about to ban smoking at parks and other public venues. It is still hard for a lot of people to do not smoke in indoor public venues, such as bars and clubs. Non-smoker people are saying that they do not want smokers in public venues, such as in parks, anymore. Smoking should be banned to reduce disease. A main support for that reason is that people who smoke are more likely to develop diseases such as lung cancer and liver cirrhosis…
