Today im going to talk about the myths and heroes

First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion: A myth can be defined as a story about gods or heroes, it can be a popular belief. A hero can be a person who is admired for his or her achievements。

In order to illustrate this notion I have chosen to talk about the inequalities between blacks and whites in the USA

In 1864 the slavery is abolished. However at the same time, Jim crow laws were introduced in the southeastern united states.These laws promoted the idea separate but equal. meaning that all races were equal, but they should be in separate locations and use separate facilities. It's a totally a racial discrimination. For exemple, black childrens can't not go to the same school as white children does.

In this context, the seat in the bus are also seperated for two races of people. we have rosa park who is a black woman, refused to obey bus driver's order to give up her seat in the "colored section" to a white passenger. She said It was not beceause she was tired physically that she refused to give up the seat, it was because she was tired to give in. After that, she was arrest but her brave behavior became important symbols of the civil right movement.

At the same time, we have another black man, his name is Martin Luther King.For many people, Martin Luther King can be considered as a hero because he fought against the racial segregation in the United States and for the civil rights of African-American.

He has organized the bus boycott in 1955. It began when rosa parks was arrest for refusing to give up the seat to a white man. The boycott lasted more than a year, and finished by removing the bus segregation. Also he gave his speech <I have a dream>, the most famous speech in history that talk about race equality. He contributed his entire life to civil right movement.

Finally, discrimination became a crime, black people now have same right as white people. Which proving by the election and reelection of Obama as president of US.
