Racial tension in the United States has decreased in some ways but in others it has remained the same During the 1950s there was stereotyping and unequal opportunities in education and jobs for blacks For a long period of time blacks had few rights They were not treated as equals and had to struggle to end racial tension Today blacks are respected and treated as equals in almost every industry but racial tension has not completely ended An example of racial tension today is stereotyping Society has improved in many areas but this is not enough An improvement that we need to make is to end stereotyping Stereotyping is a challenge for many people It is whether or not we can get along together without judging each other by the color of our skin In the 1950s many white people did not get along with black people because of the color of their skin Whites thought blacks were stupid and no good They made assumptions about black people without getting to know them People today still jump to conclusions when they see someone different than them by the way they look or dress During the 1950s there were schools that did not allow blacks Schools for the whites were nice and clean and schools for the blacks had very little supplies and were dirty this soon changed Schools that had segregated children had to bring them together Even though black and white children were together it didnt mean everything was fair In todays schools both black and white students receive equal education In the fifties jobs were limited for blacks and they had a hard time finding a decent job They would receive low wages and perform physical jobs that were very demanding Jobs today are mostly equal and fair such as Brent Staples working at the New York Times as a writer and Audre Lorde as a professor of English and an author
