This Bible. taken from Matthew 15:8. denotes cleanly what was. what is. but hopefully what will non ever be the predicament of America’s racial forepart. In 1964. a Civil Rights Act was passed criminalizing segregation in schools and other public topographic points. Following its transition. blazing Acts of the Apostless of racism were no longer tolerated in the United States. This meant that to express racial slurs. and publically assert one’s understanding with racial stereotypes came to be considered “distasteful” or “politically incorrect” . Therefore. though in more covert signifiers than in times past. racism yet rears its ugly caput.
Possibly this is because America. though cloaked in the beautiful garment we refer to as equality. is yet stained with the wickedness of racism. This fact is most apparent in the really topographic points in which it was originally outlawed. One of the many intents for which this jurisprudence was passed was to forestall age. gender. and racial favoritism in the field of health care. Unfortunately. because favoritism is non a otiose issue. but instead a serious concern due to its institutionalization. aged people have died in immense Numberss due doctors who did non keep their heal in high plenty respect to follow proper ( though at times. troublesome ) process.
In add-on. homophiles are frequently experience atrocious bedside manners from physicians who disagree with the manner in which they’ve chosen to populate their lives. and unhappily African American work forces. adult females. and kids are invariably subjected to mediocre attention merely due to the colour of their tegument. This ugly image is nil like the reasonably one painted by America for others to see.
