Since the existence of this country, society has been dealing with so many controversial political and social issues, racism and racial profiling are one of those social problems. Racism is an overpowering, disgusting, and popular act which has been destroying our country. A big issue in our society, is the still existing gap between all kinds of different races. We have known America as a multicultural country and a melting pot for all types of individuals. All the differences in an individual person have some sort of effect in a person’s life, those inequalities disturb opportunities at work, at home, where we live, in politics, etc.
For example, “A black man employed by a Minnesota trucking company had racial slurs directed at him and was the target of graffiti written by fellow workers.” (Smeltzer, Terry L. LeapLarry R) Its acts such as these that make the case for restricting hate speech in America. Hate speech has been linked to causing health problems, advocates for hate crimes, and causes emotional instability in the person receiving the insult. Hate crimes and hate speech have gone on throughout history with Hitler and the Jews, America and African slaves, and more recently white Africans and black Africans. We need to restrict hate speech even if it means having to change the first amendment of the
The oxymorons used was “[....] angry proudly” The use of oxymoron shows that Mukay is proud of his anger as he knows his point is valid and he knows what he is doing is correct. This shows that segregation can have a very negative impact on the whole community as when both the opposition are irritated there will be a larger conflict between the two. McKay also shows that segregation can affect both the sides as it is an issue that is uncontrollable for the people who are trying to tolerate it for a long time or anybody who has been apart of being negatively affected by segregation. The oxymoron helps to show the anger that most of the people affected are feeling and going through. This shows that segregation only cause people to get frustrated which happens in the nature of people handling it, however this will create a lot of conflict for both the oppositions as the people separating are already filled with anger by the stereotypes and the people who are tolerating it are getting more anger which will cause a lot of conflict verbally, physically and mentally between the two opposites.
The whole world knows that African-American society has faced many crises over the past few decades, including the slave trade, racial discrimination, injustice, and hunger. In fact, all these events led to the loss of black identity. Here in the novel "Native Son" will try to highlight the main character "Bigger" in the novel and how the environment affected him. Bigger is considered a tragic figure, as he represents the African American experience of oppression in America. Richard demonstrates that many of the quickly changing and unpredictable conditions of the modern world have created people like Bigger, exploring for a place for themselves in a world that, for them, has wasted many of its cultural and spiritual centers.
Bigger and people like him were victims of the harsh reality that white people had created for many years. African Americans were forced to live in poverty and inhuman conditions. The sense of constriction and fear of white supremacy was well portrayed during the scene where Bigger, out of the fear of being discovered in Mary’s room and being accused of raping her, he violently but unintentionally suffocated Mary.
Through all the issues that arise in the documentary, oppression and racism stick out to me the most. In the beginning of the film, we see how people of color are constantly being treated by people in power and institutions. Examples consisted of racist traffic stops, questioning about one’s whereabouts and even acts of violence based on the individual’s race. Here we can see that this so-called great country wasn’t so great towards all of its people. Cast members of this film offer some strong insights on how they feel
It is truly amazing to see what people will do to save one’s life. This day present many families are going through the same situation as Anna’s family and are coping in similar ways. My sister’s keeper has really taught me a lot, made me think about my life in a new and different way. This is my response to it because sometimes we become so comfortable with our lives and never stop to consider others. We let our problems become the focus in our lives when there are people out there faced with cancer and can’t do anything about it.

What the reader experiences during his trip to read this novel get him into very shocked and nauseated because of the atrocities that happened in the Congo; a lot of horrific and bad feelings surround the reader when he/she read this novel and cause heart damage. There is extraordinary racism that never ended in the novel stopped me many times from not complete the reading of the novel, but it is really important to know these Shahin 4 details; to know how a world of racist people can harm, damage others' rights and desolate others' dignities without right to do this, and my curiosity of knowing how a human can done like these crimes against a human like him and what their benefit
Racism in the Medical Field Racism has existed in the medical field for over 2,500 years. Where people of certain races, religions, and genders are all discriminated against by the people in this world who are supposed to help them. Doctors take an oath to treat all patients with equity, yet still some patients are prone to bigoted racism. However it goes the other way as well, even doctors experience racial prejudice by patients and their families. Racism is still immensely prevalent in today’s medical field.
