Can Anyone Explain This Form of Gender Discrimination?
Through U.S. history, it seems that black men obtain certain civil rights ahead of white women. For example, black men were guaranteed the right to vote by the Fifteenth Amendment, adopted in 1870, but white women were not guaranteed the right to vote until the Nineteenth Amendment was adopted in 1920. The first black man appointed to the United States Supreme Court was Thurgood Marshall in 1967, but there was no white woman on the Court until 1981, when Sandra Day O'Connor was appointed. At Augusta National Golf Club, black men are admitted as members, but white women are not. What is the explanation for this apparent gender discrimination?

World of sharks goes Men, then women. Always has. We live in a patriarchal society. Women still make much less than men even though they have the same job and education also. The paygap is slowly closing.
