Has Racism Truly Decreased?

This quiz will be used as data to prove my hypothesis for my topic "Has Racism Truly Decreased from the 'founding' of America until today?" This quiz will further enhance and prove my ideas into my sociology project. This quiz specifically focuses on white versus black in terms of races

With historical moments such as Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and Lyndon B. Johnson's Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, plus the current events that are going on in the United States, I thought that this would make a great topic for my class.
