In today's society it is hard to find work or not be discriminated against just because of your skin color. Any person of color has it hard anywhere, whether it be in the workplace,the educational field, and many more settings and they are told they can't do certain things because of their skin color. Being of a different shade than anyone else isn't just a struggle once in your life, it's a struggle their entire life and it start from the moment you are born. According to society you have to look a certain way and act a certain way just to be treated the same as white people and that's a shame. For an example, one could be discriminated against because their hair isn't straight or they just have the smallest amount of melanin in their skin. Overall, people of color have it quite hard.
