White And Black Spectrum Of The World,?, The Black and White Spectrum of the World Everywhere one looks, it is easy to find someone, usually black or white, stereotyping either another person or group. This stereotyping can also be referred to as discrimination.
The most common form of discrimination in the world is racial discrimination. Many African Americans have lived long harsh lives for one reason only, the white supremacy before World War II. Out of all races, the one that seems to be hit the hardest by people who discriminate are the African Americans.
The first step taken that made a black person count in society was the ?Three-Fifths Compromise.? This compromise stated that every black person counted as three-fifths of a white race; therefore African Americans had a little more ?say? in the economy. Blacks were somewhat happy with the compromise, but as a whole still felt like their race accounted for nothing (Watson). During this time (1619-1830) blacks were stereotyped to the point many white people believed that and treated blacks like they were ?natural slaves? or ?noble savages? (Deburg 3).
