Racism has remained a big problem throughout the history of the United States. John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' exposes the racism of the 1930's through Crooks, the black stable buck who was ostracized because of his color. Racism has contained to be a serious issue since Steinbeck's time. Racism against any person being considered for a job is morally wrong, hiring people just because of what color they are or their background is. Discrimination is often based on race, skin color, hair texture, or some certain facial features. The definition of discrimination is the ability or power to see or make fine distinctions; discernment. Not all of the members of the race share the same characteristic. Harassment may be based on the color or the race that you are. Racist may employ name-calling, ethnic slurs, and racial jokes that are very offensive to the person.

Every person living on this Earth deserves respect, no matter what gender, race, or religion they are. People with color often suffer because of racism. Living with the effects on daily basis. Racism should be addressed as an issue that remains derisive and fragmenting to the American society. I think racism is not good because people shouldn't be treated that way just because of their color and in John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' shows this stupidity when they didn't want to hang out with Crooks since he was a man with color.
