Adversity is misfortune or difficulty.EX: Lyra worked hard for a chance at the promotion, but Phil used his fathers connections to land him the new job.EX 2: The police officer mistakes John's phone as gun.EX 3: Jessie broke her back in a car accident, but hard work and steady recovery lead her to suceed and graduate high school.
I'm happy to announce that Phil will be receiving a promotion!
Glad I used my dads connections....
I worked so hard...

Adversity is most commonly depicted through acts of racism and bigotry. However, this is not always the case. There are also times where a person will overcome a great injury to do something they want to do. Adversity is best definied as overcomeable challenge.
Adversity is a challenge for many people in American society today. Whether it be racism or sexism, it will always be present as long as we see each other as foreign beings based on race or religion
