He declares war with Coach Reed, the Physical Education teacher when Doug refuses to go over to the skins team. It escalates to the zenith where Coach rips Doug’s gym shirt in half, exposing a tattoo Doug’s father had inked permanently on Doug’s chest that says “Mama’s Baby”.

Step 1: Facts of the case This is a case in which the plaintiffs are three long haired young men who were denied the ability to enroll in Tyler Junior College due solely to their hair length violating the schools dress code. One of the plaintiffs is a Vietnam War veteran who had attended the school for a semester the previous year and had caused no difficulties in that time. The school stated that long haired students had been known to cause disruptions in the classroom. It was due to this that the rule regarding hair length was implemented into the schools dress code. Step 2: Question of law presented to the court
Little Rock Nine enrolled the beginning of the day the Arkansas National Guard 's turned away the students. The first day of school the African American cars were pelted with rocks along with death threats screamed at the students. These nine students made history that later became a big part of the Civil Rights Movement. Experiences that the students went through on their first day of school is something that no person should ever experience. One student went through having acid was thrown in her face, the other pushed down the stairs.
Several days later the Little Rock nine “returned back to the school, and entered through the side door so they can avoid the crowd of rowdy students and the press.” That same day they were found by more students whom “violently attacked them and innocent bystanders.” In 1958 the first African American, Ernest Green, graduated Little Rock Central High School, and the governor got “reelected and shut down all schools” in Little Rock, Arkansas because he did not want to integrate the schools of Little Rock, Arkansas. The legacy of The Little Rock Nine has set the bar for African American students who has to fight for equality at predominantly whites schools today.
They feel a sense of guilt and shame that holds them back from saying anything and we see this is the Mepham High School Football case. In the Mepham High School Football case there were three upperclassmen who lead the hazing attacks and were charged as minors on counts of aggravated assault and involuntary sexual intercourse. Also, the whole coaching staff was fired for knowing signs and not taking initiative of the behavior that lead to this case. This all started during training camp when one of the upperclassman called one of the freshman a “pussy”, “faggot”, and “cocksucker.”

After Brown Vs Board all southern schools were ordered to desegregate “with all deliberate speed” and many schools did not desegregate such as the high school in Little Rock, Arkansas; nine black students wished to attend and were harassed by whites including Melba Pattillo who had acid poured on her face and was stabbed. After the white resistance would not disappear, partly due to Orval Faubus’s lack of support for the black students, Eisenhower sent in federal troops to escort the black students to and from class. This showed involvement as this was the first time a president had directly got involved with the civil rights campaign and showed he public and the rest of the south that racism would not be tolerated and desegregation needed to happen. Another way president showed support was JFK. In 1963 JFK addressed Civil rights in a speech calling it a moral issue.

Simony and Nepotism of the Catholic Church Simony and nepotism were some of the most controversial practices of the Catholic Church during the Middle Ages. They both placed unjust money and power into the hands of the leaders and high offices of the Church. Though simony and nepotism are different concepts, they are similar in many ways. Simony is the buying and selling of church roles and offices while nepotism is where higher up church leaders would give their coveted church roles to their family members. Both of them are unlawful in that they give certain church roles and offices to people who do not necessarily deserve them.
