Chris Pepus makes an argument for the expansion of civil rights laws to include a concept that plagues our society—our justice system, our financial system, our educational system: social class.

America is dying of inequality. Inequality based on race, sex, religion, and national origin. Civil rights laws, while constantly under fire from certain high-seated members of society, have proven effective in combating discrimination and prejudice. However, there is a form of discrimination and prejudice left unprotected under civil rights laws, of inequality omnipresent in modern America. This article by Chris Pepus makes an argument for the expansion of civil rights laws to include a concept that plagues our society—our justice system, our financial system, our educational system: social class.

Here’s the PDF of the article that originally ran in Razorcake #77. Here's the link to the article on our site.
