Two to Three Page Essay:
“The United States Constitution guarantees that all people are to be treated as equals under the law. A wide range of anti-discrimination laws protect people including specific provisions against discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, military service, or unfavorable discharge from military service. These laws extend protections to everyone in our increasingly diverse nation. We can be proud that our equal rights laws and acceptance of diversity stands as an example to other governments and societies.”
*Upon reading the statement above, write a two to three page essay describing your reaction to this statement. Discuss the following points:
