English 10: Racism Back Then & Now

In early 1920s, racism was mostly targeted between Caucasians and African American, as ‘White’ and ‘Black’. The victims of the racism were mainly African American because of the ‘White supremacists’, who has threatened and killed many black nationalists that has fought and worked for their rights. Therefore, one of the supporter of the black nationalist leader, Earl Little, who is also a father of Malcolm X, was killed from the house fire that was caused by the White supremacists in 1929. Even before that, Earl’s family had to move twice between 4 years because of the death threats from them. But now days, racism is not as extreme as before, such as death threats or terrors, but its targeted towards many more different type of race, like Asians, Muslims, or Mexicans.
