If America really is the “land of opportunity,” then it is only fair that everyone truly should have equality while on life’s endeavors. Sadly, however, when I reflect on the evolution of our great country, I don’t believe we are the land of promise we once were. With the world so full of discrimination, the term “land of opportunity” often gives people false hope.
