Will America ever reach equality??

I am a senior in high school, doing an iSearch project. For this project, I need outside sources to voice their opinion about this controversial question. So what do YOU think? Do you think people will ever fully accept everyone regardless of their race, gender, or sexual orientation? If so, when? Think about it...over time we've freed slaves, got women's right to vote, a black president, does it just take lots of time?
If you answer this, and if your comfortable with sharing, please include your occupation. What made you feel the way you do about this question? Thank you so much everyone!

  • Dec 10 2012: This country was founded on people not being equal. We have never had true equality. If we did, we wouldn't be the U.S.A.

    Ask a person of color if there is equality in this country.
