In 1948, the United Nations wrote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It listed 29 different human rights.
According to the declaration, every person has the right to speak freely, to marry whomever he/she wants, to choose the work he/she likes and to get an education. The list of human rights includes protection against cruel punishment and protection. Against racial, ethnic sexual, and religious, descrimination. These rights are important for people throughout the world. But in some countries, people live without these rights. People still practice racism and discriminate against others.
