Transcript of Racial slurs should be illegal

Racial slurs should be illegal
Using racial slurs in a harmful or intentional way of trying to offend someone is unfair. Under no circumstances is it fair, to the person/people be harassed because of they way they look.
Although freedom of speech is entitled to every American, discrimination is a tolerance that should not be put up with. Any use of racial slurs can be considered harassment; however harassment can only go so far in the court of law. Therefore, racial slurs should be illegal because of harassment, and discrimination.

Rosa Parks
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Generation Gap
The major problem with our generation is the abusive content used against people of other origins or the abusive racial comments itself. Racial slurs should be illegal, because they are derogatory statements made intentional to bully or provoke another person based on their skin color, appearance, or origin.

An employment policy or practice that applies to everyone, regardless of race or color, can be illegal if it has a negative impact on the employment of people of a particular race or color and is not job-related and necessary to the operation of the business.
What is considered discrimination?
Discrimination is treating someone differently from others because of a particular characteristic. Both state and federal laws prohibit discrimination based upon race, color, or national origin in employment relationships. It is also illegal to retaliate against someone because that person has opposed discrimination, asserted his or her own civil rights or assisted others to do so.
examples: bullying, joking, or stating someone's race or color by using it in a negative way.

If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought peacefully along with his followers, such as Rosa Parks, to give a cause of equal rights
why do we continue to discriminate?
At the end of everyday, regardless your race, color, etc. we are all human, no one is better than anyone we are all equal and are entitled to the same rights.
