  What were the historical, social, and legal factors that made it difficult for Americans to achieve equal treatment?

Apr 22nd, 2015

Historically it may be difficult because America's struggles with race and racism are never completely out of the news. Women were also tormented because they have had to fight long and hard political battles to win rights that men (at first certain white men, eventually all men) possessed automatically because they were male.

 Racial discrimination is a major social problem in America. From the slaves system in the colonial period, the blacks started to be discriminated and racial discrimination even has been an “American dilemma” in the United States. Also wealth has created social classes such that a certain cadre of individuals are treated better than others and vice versa.

Legal sex discrimination is not yet a thing of the past, and the progress of the past 50 years is not irreversible. Some remaining inequities result more from individual behavior and social practices than from legal discrimination, but they can all be influenced by a strong message that the Constitution has zero tolerance for any form of sex discrimination.
