I feel that issues of Race in America continue to be relevant, even since the civil-rights movement. They may have vanished from the public eye after legislation was passed to help people of color and to reduce their daily struggles, but they are certainly still relevant today, as has been shown on many occasions. For instance, the shootings in Ferguson and New York bear a striking resemblance to shootings carried out in the pre-civil-rights era south, where blacks were often threatened and killed with few to no repercussions against the murderer.

In the article, “We’re all racist. But racism by white people matters more” written on October 5th 2015 by Mona Chalabi, the author mentions that in our society today, people tend to classify racism with white people because they believe that they are the superior race and all minorities are not on the same level as them. What is interesting is that she talks about how even if everyone seems to have this certain stereotype or typical image of a racist person, in fact everyone from any race can be racist.

     Recently, a lot of serious problems have been happening all over the world. Do you know anything about refugees? I think the refugees’ problem is the most serious problem. I think most of the young people don’t know much about the problem. Actually, I didn’t know anything about it. That’s why I focused on the refugees from Syria, and researched about their present circumstance, so I will mention about it. And also, I will tell you about Japanese Prime Minister’s opinion and my opinion.

To begin, this news article entitled ‘’ Trump stands by statements on Mexican illegal immigrants, surprised by backlash’’ posted by FoxNews on July 04th 2015, mentions how mogul Donald Trump made racist and inappropriate comments about the hispanic community during his presidential campaign speech. His chauvinist remarks consisted of generalizing that immigrants from Mexico were all illegal criminal violent rapists. Wanting to establish change, he proposed the idea of placing an efficient security system at the border in order to keep the American population safe.

Actually, it is said that the situation concerning teen marriage and pregnancy is urging, because if nothing is done to help, the high rate of pregnant teen will increase of 1 million from here to 2030. In fact, this situation is highly linked to the unequality of men and women because the 15 years old girls have almost no rights on their mariiage and even their pregnancy. Fortunately, the situation is currently held by the UN and they know what is important to do.
