  1. Hi Shannon,

    I like the balance between addressing the issue and proposing solutions in your thesis.

    However, I feel like it’s a bit too general. Like you say discrimination and that’s it. What type, in what area are they discriminated?
    The solution is the same thing. What type of support do you mean. I think it will be good if you can be a bit more precise.

    I also don’t see what the consequence of this discrimination is. What has happened to the African-American community due to that discrimination? Have they Suffered? How have they suffered?
