    accommodations to certain groups or individuals? I think it is. The foundation for my position is simple: How can we have the same rights for everyone, when no one is the same? This past November, I watched a video in Social Studies class. The video was about equal rights, and focused on several situations where rules could be challenged, and how the people got their way. One example was about a man in a wheelchair who wanted to go watch a movie at a local movie theatre. However, when he went to choose a seat

    I like the line from the Declaration of Independence, "All men are created equal." I try to live by this ideal. I'm two races, black and white, and I consider myself equal to anyone.

My dad always told me that if I respected people they would respect
