Racial democracy is still a myth

Vera Williams and Vera Williams

Racial discrimination is still practiced by closed-minded individuals.

In fact, by today’s standards, these individuals are trapped in a time wrap. We need the rights to stay in place for a richer, more complicated generation.

The Supreme Court must take a look at the Voting Rights Act, Section 5, which requires federal approval for any changes in voting law.

The Voting Rights Act protects the rights of minorities.

It keeps minorities from getting pushed at the voting polls, it helps them get a fair shake on the voting on election day.

According to William David, political science major, “This section of law is needed for the protection of the rights of blacks and people of color because there is a lot of second generation racism. It is practiced by closed-minded individuals. It’s no different from the 1960s because it’s still practiced.”

Most of us have evolved, we examine everybody and everything we come in contact with.

The early mingling of nationalities produced a greater variety of discrimination. Since every body wants his race to be pure, he is prejudice.

The collections of customs and creative pursuits have made us think that the hierarchical nature of wealth and income has set us free. Socialization is tricky, it has its own uniqueness and consequences.

But globally, racial democracy is still a myth and the protection should be left in place, for future generations, that might forget about the people who died for their rights.

A critical look must be taken to see why the Supreme Court wants to weigh in on the Voting Rights Act, Section 5 changes.

Change is constant, but this is a matter that should stay in place for future generation’s protection.

As a nation, we are moving away from racism, but that doesn’t mean we should take the protections that have been in place for minorities to vote.
