  4. The ''Affirmative action'': a solution proposed to integrate the ethnic minorities in the American society

Racism has always existed in the world. But, the place where racial segregation was the strongest and still is, is the United States of America. From the Civil war (1861-1865) to 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was proclaimed, ethnic minorities, and especially the Blacks, underwent on behalf of the Whites, discriminatory acts. There were several solutions proposed to integrate ethnic minorities but nowadays, even if the segregation is more discreet, discrimination is not checked. A minority, according to the School of Chicago, defines every group of people which is different, by religion, culture, language or ethnic membership. The last census of the American population in 2000 shows that nowadays, the American population is multicultural, with 12.5% of Hispanics, 12.1% of Blacks, 69.1% of Whites, 3.6% of Asians and 1.6% of half-blood people.
