Hello bloggers!

It upsets me to say that this will be my last blog so I'd like to thank all those who read my ideas and

interacted with my blog posts through out the year. 

Now lets get back to business ;)

This blog will be discussing racial  issues in the US during the 20th century. 

To be honest, I find it very strange that even after the supreme court's decision that ruled "separate but

helped initiate the civil rights movement in the US.

from a lot of discrimination.

african  americans and white americans in terms of income, wealth, unemployment....and I absolutely


Well that was all so i hope u enjoyed reading it, bye!

  2. Good job.. I think that wat you said was very important and interesting.. It was a really good imformation and it help me a lot.
