Picture 1. This picture is of a man protesting the idea that African Americans are able to fight in wars for America, but they are unable to obtain jobs.   This is a form of discrimination.  African Americans are not being hired because of their skin color.



Picture 2.  This picture shows that slavery was a significant factor in the making of America.  Racism, prejudices, discrimination, and stereotypes were fueled by the practice of slavery.  The effects of slavery are still present in today's society.



 Picture 3. Restaurants were one of the many places which were segregated throughout the United States.  Many white Americans felt that black Americans were inferior because of their skin color.  This is a concept known as racism.

 Picture 4. This picture is an analogy of what one African American high schooler mentioned about her experience in the Times Square section of New York City: "When you go to Times Square with your friends, it's like everyone is staring at you" (Castagno, p. 341).  This student was experiencing the effects of the in-group versus the out-group.  Everyone was staring at her because she was of a different skin color which places her in the out-group.

Picture 5: This picture is of a group of people located in Time Square protesting the policy "Don't Ask Don't Tell".  This represents discrimination because if a soldier is found to be gay he can be discharged, based solely on his sexual orientation.

Picture 6: This photo shows a bunch of protesters holding signs representing the ways in which the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy discriminates against people in the military.  Over 11,000 have been discharged from the Military because of this policy.

Picture 7: This is a comic strip that tries to poke fun at the Military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy.  A soldier has died and one of the soldier's jokes about missing the opportunity of being able to discharge him because he was gay. This clearly shows the discrimination of the policy.

Picture 8: This is a photo of a graph that was released showing how many soldiers have been discharged on the sole fact that they were gay and serving in the military.  It also shows the percentage of people who want to repeal the ban of homosexuals not being able to serve in the military.

Picture 9: This is a photo of a man protesting in Washington, D.C. against the discrimination of homosexuals being discharged from the military based solely on the basis of their sexual orientation.  He believes that anyone should be able to serve their country no matter what their sexual orientation happens to be.

Picture 10: This is another comic poking fun at the military's policy on gays in the military.  It says that gays are not wanted to serve in the military and then a bunch of soldier's thinking.  Then you see a guy telling his boss that 150,000 people just announced themselves gay and want to be sent home from the Iraq war.  This comic tries to lighten the military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" where men and women are being discharged from the military based on their sexual orientation.

Picture 11: This is a comic that demonstrates discrimination against women specifically in the workplace.  It shows a woman making a good suggestion but her boss does not want to use it unless a man will get make it and get credit for it.

Picture 12: This is a photo that demonstrates discrimination by the ducks being segregated by their color.  It seems that the group of black ducks wants nothing to do with the lighter duck and will not even acknowledge him.  Even though they are the same species they still want nothing to do with it because it is not similar in color.

Picture 13: This is a picture demonstrating racial discrimination.  Even though the larger group of crayons are not all the same color they are all "lighter" colors and therefore more similar than the black crayon. This is an analogy for how segregation between white and black people exist.  The larger group of crayons in this photo is supposed to represent the different shades of 'white' people in our society (they range from very light to very dark), yet they discriminate against all shades of 'black'.

Picture 14: This is a photo that was found on the outside of a restaurant.  It shows that there is not only discrimination against African Americans, but also against Hispanics.  Even though Hispanics have a lighter skin tone than African Americans they are still discriminated against because they are not stereotypically 'white'.

Picture 15:  This is a letter dated in 1958 which is rejecting a woman who wants a job in cartooning.  The letter states that, "Girls are not considered for the training school. Women are only allowed to trace." This letter was only dated about 50 years ago which in the scheme of things is not that long ago.

Picture 16: This image represents the box that homosexuals are placed into is dangerous. It states that closets are for clothes because gay men that do not expose their sexual preference are considered to be 'in the closet'. This shows that if a gay male wants to be considered normal he has to hide his sexual preference otherwise it's looked at in a negative manner.

Picture 17: This is an image from a T-shirt and is pretty self-explanatory.  It is using the image of a baby to imply that black males are destined to become criminals.
