The President of the United States is black, thus, some people think that racism in America no longer exists. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, having a black president has intensified racial discord as many are extremely and blatantly disrespectful against President Obama as a human being, not just against him as a politcian.

It might be interesting to go to your local newspaper's web site, and find an article relevant to your local community. Try using these words as key words for your search terms. For your summary, I suggest you address each one in a paragraph and that will summarize and ensure you address everything.

One thing that always helps in writing a summary is not to limit your first draft. People often think they have to keep it short and so have trouble deciding which parts to keep and which to discard. I always told the students I tutored to write down everything, no matter how inconsequential it seemed, and cut it down later. When you have the whole article summarized in long form, you can decide which parts to remove, which sentences can be tightened, and which can be combined. A good summary leaves out unnecessary detail while delivering an overview that covers everything important.

Since it looks as if you are a college junior, you should go to the college library and ask the librarian for help in tracking down a suitable article.  Librariarns are great people and love to help patrons. The librarian can not only help you find a good article but can also help you find information about citing it correctly.

The hard part, of course, will be doing the actual summary, especially if you have no experience in doing such work.  Again, my best advice is to seek help at the learning center on your campus. There you will find experienced tutors who will take a genuine interest in helping you.  When you are in college, never be reluctant to seek the help that is available, and try as often as possible to get personal help from another human being rather than merely relying on the internet.

Nevertheless, here are some sites that may be helpful:
