All Men Created Equal
Our Core Democratic value is All Men Created Equal. This means since everyone is created equal everone should be treated equal. This value has obviously been broken many times. Infact, even at the time this value was written slavery continued to happen. Finally slavery was ended in 1865. That's 89 years after the Declaration was signed. But it's not slavery that continued it was disrespect to the other race. For example, there was a black man that came from the North and the North had little, racism or Jim Crow laws. He came down to the South and he had whistled at a white woman (an act that is acceptable in the North), the woman's husband found out and dragged the black man out of his uncle's house and beat him to death. This Democratic value is important to our country so that way we ALL have a fair chance at life.
