2014 Questions Civil Rights Act

2014 Questions Civil Rights Act
Marcus Lacewell

   In 1964 Congress passed The Civil Rights Act. The provisions of this Civil Rights Act forbade discrimination on the basis of sex as well as race in hiring, promoting, and firing. In the final legislation, it was made unlawful for an employer to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions or privileges or employment, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, disability or national origin. Title VII of the act created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to implement the law.
   But, as time changes, laws lose their purpose, through interpretation.  It seems that businesses, and individuals, have found ways to still discriminate against race, color, religion, sex, disability and national origin while 'staying clear' of the Civil Rights Act.  I have witnessed and been a victim of this discrimination, along with many others.  But, companies can blame their actions on any illusion.
   The "lines" that separate race, color, religion, sex, disability and national origin has become less recognizable than in the past.  The Civil Rights Act was meant to decrease discrimination.  But, is it still relevant?  It seems that, now, the number of groups that are discriminated against has increased.  Therefore, creating the illusion of equality.  Unlearn.
