With societies, many people are treated unfairly.
With a past history filled with misconception and incertitude, we
cannot help but wonder about our future. Many questions come to our minds
as to whether colored people will remain inferior to other races although
it is widely known that they have the same capacities, determination and
will that the whites have, or whether some communities still consider
women’s role confined to housework and childbearing.
Despite great changes occurring in the field of technology, human values
and principles are far yet to be attained.
First of all, most countries still face the problem of skin-color
discrimination. Although the majority of anthropologists and biologists
reject race as a biological concept, the idea that people belong to
different races remains embedded in many societies. As a result, in these
societies, many people are treated unfairly. However, if given a chance,
they are capable of voicing their opinion and even of risking their lives
for the sake of humanity. For Example, Martin Luther King Jr. was
assassinated because of his willpower to declare blacks and whites equal.
In his “I have a dream speech” he said, “…I have a dream that my four
little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged
by the color of their skin but by the content of their character…” But
now, 40 years later, the suffering remains, the lives are still taken away
in vain, and speeches continue to be just another meaningless set of
Another point, although women in much of the world have gained
significant legal rights, many people believe that women still do not have
complete political, economic, and social equality as men. Nevertheless,
there is no point in claiming men superior to women since both sexes are
equal in their moral abilities. Women are perfectly capable of being
politically, economically and socially active. Somewhere in the 19th
century, Mary Ashton Livermore expressed the mistaking of women’s roles in
this quotation: “Above the titles of wife and mother, which, although dear,
are transitory and accidental, there is the title human being, which
precedes and out-ranks every other.” Moreover, in the beginning of the 20th
century, Nancy Astor has said, “Superiority we’ve always had; all we ask is
equality.” And now, we’re so proud to have witnessed the turn of a century,
but is it enough to have been there when the fireworks announced that 1999
is over without actually fulfilling the dream that thousands of women
fought, died and were imprisoned for?

should consider ourselves equal to all human beings, and we should move
forward to create a better future for ourselves and for the following
generations. We should continue the fights and the struggles that the
people before us have started. The better future lies now in our hands. We
should act now before humanity is doomed.
