‘For What It’s Worth’ by Buffalo Springfield has a logical message because it is referring to the Sunset Strip Riots that took place in Hollywood during the 1960’s. People protested when they lost their civil rights due to a curfew law that was put into place. The song says, “Stop, children, what’s that sound. Everybody look- what’s going down?” Community members were angry at the young people going to clubs at night because they were “loud” and “disruptive”. The curfew law was put into place after the complaints and the youth became outraged.
The question is, what type of ruler was he; ruthless or Enlightened? Asoka was a ruthless leader due to the fact he was power-hungry and ignorant. Power-Hungry Leader One reason why Asoka was a ruthless leader was because he was power-hungry. In his conquering of Kalinga, he killed hundred of thousands of Kalingins to get what he wanted; more land (Doc A). Not only did he kill thousands for his claiming of land, but he claims he gave up violence and decides to live a peaceful and happy life when he
Here is what I think, I don’t think Andrew Jackson should be on the twenty dollar bill. He is unstable, one moment he 's fighting and killing Indians then all of the sudden he 's taking their son in. He was racist, he had slaves. I know he had a hard life growing up but that’s no excuse to do the things he did. He treated people rudely, by having slaves and solving things by duels.
He later hosted a funeral for his leg and somehow his new prosthetic leg was captured and held as a battle trophy! Antonio López de Santa Anna spent lavishly on parties and a private army as well as statues of himself that were erected to show off his power. He often ran away to his hideaway, Manga de Clavo and spent his time raising fighting cocks. He strengthened the army and the central bureaucracy, filled political positions with corrupt friends and financed it all through forced domestic loans and foreign borrowing.” (Antonio López de Santa Anna, 1996). He created a better army, became rich, and overall made Mexico stronger as a
Nat Turner's Rebellion Nathaniel Turner started a rebellion that made the plantation owners very upset and scared to go to sleep because they could've possibly been murdered. Nat Turner's Rebellion was bad because it made the slaves join him in his movement. Most believed that Nat Turner was a madman. He was a madman because he killed many innocent families and children during his rebellion (film). Nat Turner was a mad man because of the things he did during his short rebellion.
Reconstruction was socially unsuccessful because of the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow Laws, and Segregation. The Ku Klux Klan would threaten, beat, and murder blacks and republicans. They would burn crosses on their raids, and would throw little wooden caskets in the home of the Republican or African American who was being raided. Jim Crow Laws separated the population because, it make it so white people would always have the better out of black people such as, seats on a train, or there American rights would be discriminated on. Jim Crow Laws also made it so blacks would have to go to different schools, different public transportation areas, different schools, and different restaurants.
In the beginning of the movie “Remember the Titans” many black people are outside in the streets rioting, because a white store owner killed a black teenager. This act caused many black people to be furious, this shows that there are many racial tension around the high school. In T.C. Williams high school Herman Boone who is the black coach, coaching the offensive side of the team, was made fun many times due to his nickname. Coach Coon which is his nickname is an insulting word for a black person.
Black lives matter movement should also argue, stop black on black crime.There are lots of violence going on today, particularly within our own community.We have young black men killing each other over drugs and other nonsense that may torment our community. Not to mention, the constant reminder of the black on black crime that is plastered on the news daily.It saddens me to know our ancestors endured so much hardship and we turn around and kill one another.Understand know crime is right, however, we contradict our actions with so much black on black violence toward each other. I believe if we have more strong leaders like we once had. Our community would come together. We have seen changes with martin Luther King Jr and Thurgood Marshall.
Turner along with his band of about 70 slaves where going from one house to another killing every family. They would use knifes and clubs as weapons to kill around 50 whites. A militia force had to intervene to stop the revolt. Later all the slaves along with Nat Turner would get executed. Sadly the rebellion had caused even tighter laws on slavery and many states had even banned people from teaching blacks how to read and wright because they saw that the key factor in this revolt was the intelligence of Turner.
Next was segregation everything was different like the, water fountains, sections of the bus, they even had different school, colored schools, and white schools. The last cause in my opinion, this is the most sad of them all the violence, the African Americans were getting their houses caught on fire by the mischievous whites, getting viciously beat by the whites sometimes even killed like getting run over by a car, sheriff 's releasing their demon dogs on African Americans as well. Marching on Washington for jobs and freedom. People that day stood up to the political and social injustices of the African Americans, tensions and racial unrest building up. John F. Kennedy makes a Civil Rights Legislation, the timing was right for a massive demonstration.
