The article “Race and Racism Central Issue of Election” by Margaret Hageman from The Toronto Star on October 14, 2014 discusses the issue of racism in Toronto and emphasizes the importance of electing a mayor who comprehends the role that racism plays within the city (Hageman, 2014, para 2). When a place has “Diversity Our Strength” as their motto, the author finds it important to have a leader who understands racism. The current white majority in Toronto will soon become the minority as the number of non-white people in the city increases (Hageman, 2014, para 3).

The article “American Schools are STILL Racist, Government Report Finds” written in the Huffington post explains that students of color who attend public schools are most likely to get punished and to have incompetent teachers. It is shown that students with a different “race” than white are most likely to get expelled or suspended. There are a large amount of teachers who fail to meet certification requirements and teach at public schools. Sadly, these teachers teach minority students which leads to low academic performance.

Even though the death penalty is abolished in the majority of the countries of the world, in some countries it is still in effect as of today. I believe that this is something that should be changed in the world, and even though major progresses have been made about this situation, it is still an important ethical problem.
