His argument understands the social epidemic of police killings on the emotional and psychological well-being of Black males to put an end to police killings. “From the failure of national data collection monitoring systems to accurately capture the number of cases of extrajudicial killings by police, to the reluctance of the criminal justice system to appropriately indict police officers who intentionally profile and purposefully use deadly force, the United States faces a crisis in the policing system, and the most vulnerable victims are Black males” (Hakim
The black beauty breaks through the wall of the warehouse and drags people in and out of the place. These actions could be consider as a violation on the Constitution and certain lawsuits. Here, the movie is depicting the idea of super heroes are often being remit from the consequences they created to the public. Normally, in Marvel’s movies any damage or tragedy caused by the heroes are illustrate as unexpected or necessary. However, in the Green Hornet Michel Gondry, the director, makes these two “heroes” as criminals because of their preposterous actions.
We begin to know him but what’s worst is we begin to feel for him. Everyone has been disgusted at one point or another when a shady lawyer is able to get a murderer cleared of charges. This film first goal is to entertain. However, twisted that may seem given the film’s constant urge to disturb but it is also a vital cultural artefact, using the serial killer genre to unshackle the deep moral problem today. When a morbidly obese person sit next to us in a public place, we wonder how they let themselves get that way.
Police brutality, racism, and classism are age old based on stereotypical assumptions and ideas that should have never been relevant and should no longer be allowed. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas demonstrates the theme that assumptions can have catastrophic consequences through discriminatory acts that result in everything from humility to the death of those all too young. Although it is not as blatant as it may once have been, assumptions and stereotypes still rule the minds of a lot of the world 's people without them even knowing. Maybe even you intentionally make assumptions about the way people are based on their clothing, job, race, lifestyle etc. The next time you turn on the TV and see a victim of police brutality or another unjust act of stereotypical ideologies, try to think of them as the person they were.
The Allegory of the Cave was a metaphor created by Plato explaining the lack of education and the effect it may have on future generations. Plato begins by having Socrates describe the prisoners inside the cave as being chained by the legs and the neck to a wall with a fire lit just behind it and between that and the fire are people holding up puppets that cast a shadow in front of the prisoners. The voices made by the puppeteers reflects off the wall and the prisoners on the other side believe that those are the voices of the shadows. Socrates and Plato believe that the shadows are reality to the prisoners because they have never experienced anything else. Plato is trying to convey that the cave is the world and the people that inhabit it are the prisoners.
For example, the Peri-Urban were Alexandra’s police force that mainly consisted of black policemen, that were led by white officers (16). These policemen were brutal and it’s as if they had lost their dignity and stooped so low as to go against their own kind. But what can we learn from the story? What I learned from the story was that, the government can be manipulative and they will hide their tracks of evil doings by lying to the public. No good could from this because the people being mistreated by the government would revolt.
Let’s examine the prisoner in his natural state, shackled up and staring at the shadows presented to him. In fact Socrates describes the wall in front of it, “like the partition at the front of a puppet stage.”(Stephanus 514b), what do you do when given a stage, you watch and become immersed in the world they present you. He lives in the reality presented to him, his education is whatever the shadows show him, the blinders he wears prevents him from seeing anything else(Stephanus 514b). His condition is deplorable, all they have is a fire for warmth and it is open to conjecture as to whether or not they have enough to eat. Yet the prisoner accepts this, why else would he fight to stay, it is all he knows and all that he cares for.
Furthermore, I believe Dr. Thomas Stockmann is a greater hero than Thomas More. “The Allegory of the Cave” by Plato is about a group of prisoners that were chained up in a cave with their backs facing the exit of the cave, unable to see what was going on in the outside world. They occasionally would see shadows on the wall and would
Unfortunately, most of the news and facts they’re receiving is either bias or highly exaggerated. Some Western media companies have achieved destroying the true image of Arabs, “The word ‘Arab’ is almost never used as a complimentary or even neutral term. Instead, “Arab” is employed to help advance the sinister stereotype: Arab=Muslim=Evil Enemy Other” (Jack Shaheen, 2013). Media has taken the word “Arab” from an honorable well cultured being and somehow managed to turn it into an insult. Consequently leading to false accusation of the Arabs not just causing hatred and violence, but also causing deep fear to those affected by such accusations.
Nonetheless, it conceded that ‘it is clear that Gordon was a seditious and dangerous person, who might possibly have been hanged by a regular tribunal, but it is equally clear that he was hanged on insufficient evidence’ (‘Punch's Essence of Parliament’ 51:57). Gordon is depicted as a dangerous subverter, ‘a pestilent and dangerous agitator’(“A Bridge of Gold”), who stirred the resentment of the black population until the situation went out of British control. Yet Punch also feigns to side with Gordon's supporters and
