I always wonder what social psychology does to our brains. The story of Thurgood Marshall is eye opening. In this memory recall by Marshall, he talks about how one day in 1930 he arrived at a small town in the south to defend a black man accused of serious crimes and when he got there the black man was already dead. These forced me to reflect on our society, and our American history and our social psychology.

Racial inequality tints American culture history. For example, Latinos and Blacks. For decades, these two types of cultures have been oppressed by the white man. These can tell a lot about our collective psychology and how we see one another. Color has become an important issue. Not even in the 21st-century color folks can walk around the streets safely without being portrait as delinquents. Nothing has changed besides the new rulers to oppress the less fortunate people in our country only because of skin color.

Our history has been compiled based on the oppression of minority groups. For centuries oppression has become an important issue in our country, and it seems that this hasn’t changed at all. The article “prejudice “Aronson points out the story of Marshal and the time when he was departing from a train station to go back home, and a white man approaches and asks him what he was doing there. This makes me think of today’s society when a cop stops you just because of your skin color or what type of car your driving.

Social psychology in American history still tainted with racial inequality. The collective psychology that our children are getting now in days is the one of prejudice based on color. If we don’t stop this whole nonsense about color and racial inequality this country would be doomed at some point. We have to stop the whole mentality of the white man power, and start rising above all so social, and color inequality can be a part of the past and stay in the past
