Racism and discrimination against black people in America


Racism and discrimination against black people in America

- Introduction

This presentation is about racism and discrimination against black people in America. Let’s have a look at few examples to think about racism and discrimination.
For example:

- A German teacher went to an American School. He got the 3rd class with 20 black children, but only 2 children could read.
- Why can only 1 black people sit and vote in a 100 men Senate?

I also want to show you a few minutes of Mahatma Gandhi’s life and his struggle for independence.
