Write 8 pages with APA style on Extent of the US Democracy for Civil War to Protect. Studies reveal that during this period the Blacks worked for the Whites. Whites owned the Blacks. They had no liberty to do things on their own thus, any violation of a White authority led to severe punishment. The coming into power of the American President, Abraham Lincoln, in 1860 also had a great part to play in the insurgence of the American civil war. It is, however, sad to note that the democracy fought for in the civil war did not bore much, as there exists segregation and the racial wage gap, racial segregation in the labor market, segregation in the US military, racial wage gaps between the Whites and the people of color, minority groups suffer a higher unemployment rate, and the intra-racial wage gap in the United States (Global Credit Portal).
Segregation and the racial wage gap in the US have been one of the ugly faces of the subtle and myriad ways through which discrimination into the post-civil rights act of 1964 remains within the society. These two inequality avenues have been historical and some people across the racial presupposed that their race/ethnicity determines the kind of career that they will take. History is ripe with open school discrimination cases that condemned some people of color to either dropping out of school or taking a different career line altogether. At present, the White major holds the American top jobs in the labor market. Worthy of note is the overrepresentation of women of color in the service industry while the total percentage constituent of the American labor force is so slim of the overall number of the minorities (National Committee on Pay Equity para 1). Partly, inequality in education and ethnic balkanization that cultivated prejudices have created stereotypes that only certain racial groups can satisfactorily perform certain jobs.
One of the peculiar characteristics of the American labor market is its racial stratification. People of color have tended to occupy the lower cadre of the jobs compared to the Whites and Asian Americans.
