In document 6, William Hinton, a American member of Chinese Communist land reform task force, said that Chinese peasants demanded to repay their properties, such as money and land to landowners. The communist party gave social equality to women in the Marriage Law of the People’s Republic of China in document 7. The communist party intensely changed patriarchal society into equal right society, so the sense of social equality is shown by this the new policy. However, the law aimed to give gender equality to women, but it is a question that real situation in China treated women equally because it is difficult to state that social awareness of Chinese peasants allow women as equal human beings due to Confucian influences. According to document 8, the communist party did promoted policies that pursue social equality between landowners and peasants by Agrarian Reform Law of the People’s Republic of China in 1950.
People should not judge one another and feel so surprised if they see a individual who does not look anything like a Latino and should not criticizes that person. There are wide, diverse experiences in competition with the stereotypical images. So people are constantly judged by these images. Every Latino is unique in their own way and should not have to explain to a person why they do not look like a Latino because may come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Society should realize that not every race will look identical because of the parents genetics which can have a big changes in how the Latino may look.
The Victorians were discovering new lands inhabited by different people, which made the contact with a great variety of different cultures inevitable. Although they were invading larger part of the world and imposing their own culture on others, they were determined to keep their culture free of outside influences. By all manner of means, they were trying to preserve their societal stability, the normality within their own society from the invasion of the different and therefore abnormal. Based on an erroneous interpretation of Darwin’s Evolution Theory, white man felt racially superior and thus tried to impose its culture on others in order to help them become civilized. With the expansion of the Empire not only food, fabric and different
For instance, Lack talks about how Blacks and Latinos were torn between supporting either the Mexicans of the Texans. Strangely enough, their choices were not as such inspired by patriotism to their nation but survival. This practice has extended even to modern society where many prejudices exists about black people due to their simple desire to survive. Perhaps the greatest contrast between the two books is that in The American Promise, the authors analyse how environmental issues such as conservation of sources of energy (coal, fossil fuel) and deforestation. In The Revolutionary Experience, however, the focus on environmental issues is not only shallow but also Lack does not proceed to show how it affected the politics of the time.
Williams would possibly argue that Africans partaking in the war was honorable and a great aid in the war efforts. Conversely, African conscripts like Kamara did not have a strong reason to fight. Kamara believed that Africa was needlessly dragged into “the white man’s war…” to fight for another nation’s cause. Regardless of the minor disparity between the backgrounds of the sources, Kamara and Williams both suggest that imperialism is morally wrong. The many problems created by imperialism are to be the basis of many future events.
The author is using genetic engineering as a parallel of inter-racial breeding. So when thought of eugenics that way, it does not seem so terrible. While the author does use parallels so that the reader can relate to the text, the author also estranges the reader from the idea of humans being the superior species. Through this estrangement the reader can see that the medical ethics in play, when referring to eugenics and genetic engineering, are in jeopardy as many people believe. The notion of humans not being the top species forces the reader to take a mental step back and rethink the reluctance to explore the possibilities of the human
He also believed that slavery was morally wrong, for blacks and for whites, but didn’t want it to be abolished in his life time. This is where Jefferson’s hypocritical features peak through. Jefferson believed whole heartedly that blacks were an inferior race that did not have the intellectual capacity to live as equals along side white men. He believed that blacks succumbed too easily to their physical desires, and had no self control. While he believed that Native Americans had the mental capacity to become equal to whites, they just had to conform to white man ways and they could live peacefully and become one race through interracial marriages.
Jaden=Orange Justin=Blue Qylan=Green intro Family is a part of our culture that can also affect the way we view things. In the short story, “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan, Jing-Mei is facing cultural conflict with her mother causing Jing-Mei to see the world differently with different morals. “For unlike my mother, I did not believe I could be anything I wanted to be, I could only be me.” (Tan 24). With this statement you can see that she does not agree with her mother. Jing-Mei’s Mother was raised in Chinese culture, therefore she is very strict and demanding to Jing-Mei to do what she wants.
He writes about his impulsions to end slavery in the Declaration of Independence contradict his harsh words in Notes on the State of Virginia. “Besides those of colour, figure, and hair, there are other physical distinctions proving a difference of race. They have less hair on the face and body. They secrete less by the kidnies, and more by the glands of the skin, which gives them a very strong and disagreeable odour.” claims Jefferson (789). He is stating that black people are brutes.
At the opening of “White Tigers,” Kingston vividly describes the importance of storytelling to girls in the Chinese community. Kingston states, “When we Chinese girls listened to the adults talk-story, we learned that we failed if we grew up to be but wives or slaves. We could be heroines, swordswomen. Even if she had to rage across all China, a swordswoman got even with anybody who hurt her family. Perhaps women were once so dangerous that they had to have their
