Provide examples. These laws were intended against which racial minorities? In America we have laws that enforce that no matter what color or race you are that you can work anywhere you want and be what you want to be in life. We consider all is equal, one of the laws that was passed in the 1964 was the “prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin”. There was also a law that profits any creditors to deny credit for any desire does to the same things as a job.

There is the Fair Housing Act that prohibits any denial of buying or renting housing based on their religion or race. In 1965 there was another law passed on that prohibits the denial of anyone that would want to vote just because of their race, color, sex or disability. • In what ways have laws been used to eliminate discrimination? Provide examples. Did the laws work to eliminate discrimination? If you did not fallow by the constitutional rights of no discrimination you could lose your job and depending on the job maybe even your license.

You could also be sewed for discrimination if the law is not enforced. Say a black woman and white women went out for the same job and the black woman had way more experience with what the job is asking for and the white lady just came out of school and was looking for an internship. The job told the black lady that they will get back to her because they always due background checks before hiring, but when the white lady went in she got hired right away. This is a case of discrimination and the company could be sued.
