In our course this week, we continued our exploration of equality of opportunity. Today more Americans, including women, POC, and members of the LBGTQ community, have greater freedom to exercise their rights than at any time in modern history. At the same time, Americans are increasingly sharing their fear that the American Dream has left them behind. As we have learned from our readings, we are equal in our rights but not necessarily equal in any other ways, including athleticism, intelligence, genetic advantages, family structure, economics, or historical privilege.
For your journal entry this week, discuss an example in your life, whether at work, home, school, or during a time of relaxation when you victoriously exercised equality of opportunity and achieved a significant personal or moral victory.
