  2. I think there is still work to be done because there is still some segregated states. Segregation is bad and I think there is still some work to be done with these states. Also, the Civil Rights movement was the right thing to do but this movement didn't do enough to stop segregation.

  4. I think the civil rights movement worked but not that much. I think this because the kids got to go to regular schools but there was still racism with adults in these days. one example is police brutality another is what happened at the Oscars when no black person won an award.

  6. I think that the civil rights movement was a great idea because it was treated everyone equal with all their rights. Like MLK and Rosa Parks those two people were the most imnportant people in the 1950's because they both did something to change live in America. MLK did the "I Have a Dream" speech and Rosa Parks Bus BoyCott.

  7. Yes I think things have changed but not all the way. People in different parts in the world are still racist. Some people still don't allow other races to come in their area and its segregated. Its not as bad as it was in the 1950's but things have changed in some countries but not all.

  10. The civil rights movement is over but it should not be. We need to keep fighting until every last racist is wiped out of our soon to be beutiful country. We need one final stand of the best civil rights leader's to take racism out of all states in the U.S. and possibly the world.

  13. i think it has changed a lot because now there are no segregated schools or segregated bathrooms dinners. but i also still think there is a lot to change still. like there is still the KKK then adding on to that some times you see news reports of bad things happening to black people. like one time there was a black family that were the only black family in a neighborhood and there house was vandalized and spray painted to say WHITES ONLY.so to say i think there is nothing more to be done in my opinion would be wrong but there has been a lot of improvement.

  19. i think we had a lot of progress but were still working on it.there still discrimination creeping around witch i think is super dumb.but on the bright side no bathrooms are segregated or anything like that.but this is how i feel about the remaining discrimination.PEOPLE WE HAVE FOUGHT LIKE 3 WARS TO STOP THIS PLUS LIKE 40 HUGE PROTESTS TO STOP THIS!!!but we have definatly gone a long way.

  20. i think the world is great because their is no more segregated schools or dinner or bathrooms. but i think their is more things that need to be improved. like last year their was a black lady that got treated wrong in a store. she was trying to buy something and the white cashier er wouldn't let her buy it but he let the white person buy what they wanted to buy. also in this world their is still slavery in some countries and blacks are still not being treated equal. so in my opinion i believe that the world isn't perfect yet. their still some things that need to be done in this worldddddddd!!!.

  21. America has changed a great deal. Segregated Schools are now illegal and African Americans and white children now play. While work still needs to be done in other countries still believe segregation the U.S is definitely changed. So in my opinion the world isn't perfect but it definitely has changed for the better - Triston

  22. I think we still should make some changes. The US is awesome but other counties still are segregated. I also think that if Donald Trump is president we will have to deal with slavery with every single race that isn't like him im getting off topic so i should stop. But i still think that the Civil Rights Movement made a huge difference. Oh btw BOO DONALD TRUMP!!!!! I DON'T LIKE HIM AND I NEVER WILL!! okay bye - Mia Cabral ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°) ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)

  24. I think we have done a great job because now there is no segregation and when america had it was awful. But then i do think there needs to be work done because people are still treating people different but comparing back then america is doing pretty well.

  25. In my opinion, things have changed a great deal, Africans could go to school, vote, and can sit wherever they want, but I think there is still some work to do. There is still discrimination, going on today to other races, not just to Africans, like Muslims. Donald Trump discriminates against Muslims saying he would make them have to leave America if he becomes president. Some whites still discriminate against Africans as well, which means work still needs to be done.

  33. I believe things have changed. African Americans have been able to vote, and they have the rights that all other Americans do. In other countries, there is still segregation and slavery which we have to stop. America is a free country. Many people come from other countries to get there freedom, in which there country could possibly not have. Even though America is a wonderful country and we have great freedom, other countries do not and we have to stop that.

  34. I believe things have changed but there still needs work to be done about it. Some people are still in favor of one race over the other and I think that people should not prefer one race over another because it is very racist. That is why I believe work still needs to be done about racism.

    1. He didn't accept. He just said, "I don't know enough about them to accept," which was a lie for two reasons. One, everybody knows who the KKK are. (Very few people don't) Two, he had dealt with them before, in what way i can't remember. The problem was that HE DIDN'T DECLINE IT RIGHT AWAY!!!!!

  37. For the U.S., I believe that there is little room for improvement in this matter. But there is still room. Right now, a law is being presented to Congress that allows business owners to fire someone or decline a job request based on race, religion, or belief, which will not pass. The name of this bill is something like the "Freedom Rights Law" or something like that that has no correspondence whatsoever to its contents. In other countries, Slavery is still very much a thing, and they treat females extremely poorly, like not allowing them to show any part of them except for their eyes and the tiny space between them, which makes no sense at all.

  38. I believe that it has changed a great deal because African Americans vote, go to school, and sit where they want to. I also believe that America can still make it happen less. For example, people still want to come into america but if they are Muslim or another race some people say that they should not come in to america. I believe america is a strong, beautiful country but we still have our flaws. I think that america can be better place for many people.

  39. I think that it's both because some countries still face discrimination and segregation, but it's better than it was back then. Then, people bombed churches and important African Americans houses, but now, it's usually just verbal discrimination today.

  40. I think we have changed in a major way but also we need to improve on somethings because not alot of people have jobs our home also because there are alot of bad things going on in the world that I think america can help solve including many illegal things also how the news says about the white shooting blacks or the other way around but there are many other things america its self can improve on.But we have moved long ways from what happened in the pass.

  41. I believe we have done a lot to prevent it ,but there is also some work to be done. For one reason we have stopped segregation and the Civil Rights Movement also has changed a lot. For another reason we still have racist issues today. That is why I am on both sides.

  42. I believe that there is still a lot of work that has to be done in the terms of the Civil Rights movement. But, I also believe that America made a lot of progress. For example, they made segregation illegal. On the other hand, there is still discrimination against, not just African Americans, but, all minorities. There are still hate crimes that occur in some states. Although America might still be facing discrimination, I think that this country really changed from how it used to be.

  43. I believe that things have changed because there are no more segregated schools, restrooms, or restaurants. African Americans can now vote and do other things that they used to not be able to do. I also think that America could get better too. There are still some states that discriminate the other race and treat them badly. Overall I think the U.S. has come a long way from where we were but we still have some work to do.

  44. I believe that things of changed in terms of segregation but are not as good as they could be for all people. I believe that the government tries and so do many people to have equal rights for all people but they don't try hard enough to make sure everyone has a life as fair as possible when it comes to segregation. So in conclusion, I believe segregation has gotten better but the US still has some more work to do.

  46. Things have changed A LOT. However, I do believe there is still work to be done. Many people still have these racist beliefs. For example, the KKK has been around for a very long time supporting racism, but is still around today. Many citizens also simply have racist beliefs, whether they keep it to themselves or not.

  47. I think that segregation has gotten a lot better but not great there are many, many states that still treat them bad and various crimes have happened. In far away places they are still discriminated. But not like before because there are laws. Even though it has gotten better still there is better.

  48. In my opinion, segregation has gotten better, but it could still use some work. For example, some people are still racist, not as bad as in the 1950's and people still don't want different races to come into their area. Segregation could still use some work.

  49. In my opinion segregation has gotten a lot better than 50 years ago. Segregation still goes on in other countries but has gotten bett e f in the United State. For example, I go to school with children of different skin colors and races. In other countries it is the opposite. That is why I think segregation ended or could use some work.

  50. In my opinion, since the Civil Rights movement, things have gotten a lot better. For example, Barack Obama is our president and he is African American!!!! Also, there is no segregation anymore. Although some people can be racist, overall it has changed a ton (in a good way:)).

  52. I think that things have changed a great deal since segregation. I mean, the fact that I can drink from the same water fountain as anybody (regardless of race) does is an improvement on its own. Another example is that I have neighbors of all races and friends of all races. If there was still segregation, I wouldn't be allowed to do that. I also want to say that when I said there has been a great deal of change, I did not mean that it could not be even better. But the fact that a whole country is out of segregation is a great deal of change.

  54. I think there has been a lot of change and I think things are fine the way they are now. For example I am allowed to go to the same school as people of many races. Another example is that I can do anything I want and no body can tell me I can't do that because of my race. There are still a few things wrong though (Trump for example).

  56. In my opinion, things definitely have changed for civil rights and most people got their equal rights but there is still work to be done. I mean, we are not being too harsh these days on people from a different race, but people still discriminate others not like themselves. An example of this could be the same-sex marriage act, when the U.S. supreme court finally ruled that states cannot ban same-sex marriage. An issue that is still being debated would be the fact that schools today can be a little segregated. I am not saying that Spark is one of these schools, but there are still schools all over Georgia that do not have the same working environment.Some schools not having nice textbooks, computers, and copy and print machines means that some school are not equal to others. These schools are where many African Americans go to school, and I am not trying to be racist, but this is the reality. In conclusion, things have changed for civil rights but there are things that need to be changed.

  57. I believe that it has changed so very much in the fact of Civil Rights in the past 50 years. But of course there is still a lot of work to be done. Lot's of people's basic rights are taken away every day in other countries other than in America. Like for example, you would think that the KKK would be diminished by now, but it is still a big issue in the news. Like people aren't segregated like they were in 1950-1960, but there are still problems like these in other countries. So overall, there is a lot of room for improvement in the world's Civil Rights issues.

  61. I think that civil rights have changed A LOT in 1950s. One example is that African Americans and white people can now live in the same area without breaking the law. Another example is now both African Americans and white people can now sit at bars no matter what color they are. I do not think civil rights in America for African Americans can improve anymore because we are all equal.

  62. I think African-Americans have changed a great deal. Back then, blacks & whites couldn't even sit in the same bus seat. Now look at us. If segregation were still here, I wouldn't be friends with Keegan or Sophia S.
    At the same time, there's still work to be done. I've heard that some people are still trying to support segregation. Hannah G. said in class that she saw a pub for 'blacks only'. Vishwa or Owen said he saw a guy driving around waving the Confederate flag.

  64. I believe that definitely a lot has been changed but there is always room for improvement. For example, in other countries (and sometimes still in the U.S.) African Americans are not treated equally. Some people still also still believe that African Americans are inferior. And there is the other people who walk around carrying the confederate flag. But at the same time we have improved a lot because 60 years ago a certain race couldn't even be friends with another race and they had separated facilities, and now that doesn't happen.
