Money, Money, Money
When I was a young boy I attended a very prestigious school, the one aspect I could never grasp was why my best friend who was my neighbour couldn’t attend the same school. My parents told me he could not afford the school, that I should be grateful for getting a better education. This puzzled me for many years. Why should ones opportunities be controlled by their bank account? These days what you can do and where you can go is judged by how much money you have. This segregation created by economic status can lead to discrimination within society. Discrimination is rife within the communities of first world countries friends groups within schools are judged buy what you can buy with your money. The recent release of the US poverty rate chart.
Shows that 15% of Americans live in poverty. Many of these people experience discrimination due to their unfortunate disposition. Neighbour hoods are bounded by how much you earn, neighbourhoods are classed, upper class middle class and lower class. The naming of living standards and housing standards created by people’s economic situation creates discrimination within society. When people drive through poor neighbour hoods they lock their doors and they get sweaty palms this discrimination or the belief that when you drive through a poor neighbourhood that you are going get car jacked is created by the segregation that peoples economic status stops people from escaping from these neighbourhoods. Many of these problems are faced by illegal aliens they are easy prey to the discrimination that society dishes out. A recent homeland security report released shows the number of illegal aliens in America.“In summary, the number of unauthorized immigrants living in the Unite…
…nge the world.”
If this is true then why does society limit the accessibility to education, if society wants to change the world then allow children into schools no matter how much money they have. Aid other countries in their education fund this will limit the amount of people leaving for a better life and allow the disabled better right because if we don’t act now the discrimination faced by these people will only get worse and their living standards. I want to take you back to my story, the little boy, whom happened to be my friend he had a name Jack was his name this is the point I am trying to make to you everybody is a human being they have names they have stories. Putting a number on some one’s head is dehumanising so why do we put monetary value on peoples head if you with society then go ahead forget my story and my name and brand me 4664.
