Internment is a less ruinous word then prison. But, that 's exactly what it was. First of all, the first reason I am strongly against the Executive Order 9066, is because it was unconstitutional. According to the Bill of Rights, all american citizens have freedom of religion, speech press and right to assemble. This shows that even though all American citizens have the same rights, the Japanese Americans were casted out, like they part of a different country, even though they were loyal as americans.
MLK’s ultimate claim is that the church is to blame for these happenings and “the judgement of God is upon the Church as never before”(276). King stated how even the people who were in the church trying to fight for justice had been looked down upon and some had been kicked out of their own churches. King’s claims were passionately presented. He relentlessly provided evidence to prove his position on the issue of injustice and also showed ample amounts of examples to solve these problems.
I agree with Jackie Robinsons method of civil disobedience even though he knows he can never be non-violent. I do not agree with Malcolm X and the nation of Islam approach because it is more violent and aggressive even though they do not want to live together with whites. I believe that the civil rights movement was about making a change for African Americans and the only way to make a change is through nonviolent acts. The civil rights movement was to make a change and Malcolm X and the nation of Islam's approach would have caused more problems than solved any for African Americans. Malcolm X believed that blacks should live separately from white's and he called it separation.
Today, in this time period, there is more equality. During the time period the novel To Kill a Mockingbird took place, there was a lot of racism and prejudice. Atticus had logical reasons as to why Tom Robinson was not guilty. He's showing that no matter what race you are, we all are equal and deserve the same rights. After the trial, and the verdict was said, Jem talks about how unfair the trial was.
The United States have procedures and protocols for its criminal justice system for a reason. No matter what the prosecution’s reasoning was, they should have followed the specific procedures and rules that were laid out for everyone. Since the prosecution violated the rule of thumb, I believe that judgment was what cost them the case of O.J. Simpson.
In America you respect America. You are not forced to be here. So if you are not happy with the things we do then you can leave. A large part of the reason people are protesting it is for equality for colored people. This is not an argumentative statement because blacks can do the exact same things whites can.
As feminism proves to be successful, more people are realizing that segregating a race or gender is detrimental to a country’s power and global image. However, racism is still very much prevalent in our society, most of it being unable to be proven. To eradicate racism, we must eliminate the roots of racial profiling, one of the most common factors of racism. Firstly, the government should make it mandatory for all law enforcement officers to put on and turn on body-cams. Although the initial stage could be pricy due to the overwhelming number of police officers, the advantages are nothing to sneeze at.
He argues his equality to be there like anyone else speaking on the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia but run through every Southern state. Dr. King says “anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered outsiders” (4). He fought the issue against “injustice” because he believes every state is considered mutual. Nevertheless, King then refutes the difference upon just and unjust laws. King would concur with St. Augustine that “an unjust law is no law at all” (12).
Racism will never end as long as people are living. Everyone has a right of free speech, and if the N word or being called spanish rather than Hispanic offends someone it will not stop people from saying whatever they please. The only thing that can, is bringing attention to the situation. Today in U.S history there was many questions regarding if Norwalk high is racist or not. Many people said yes, while other were blinded to this.
Michael Walzer talks about justice as being equal to everyone. Nobody should be above the law, regardless of their social status, etc. On a perfect world, our justice system would be equally accessible and implemented regardless of who is the accused. Everyone has the same rights. On the other hand, Kenji Yoshiko believes justice is not something you can measure.
Racism is an issue we have dealt with for decades; we all judge people under a personal lens. Our opinions on people are shaped by our views and values. Even 100 years after Emancipation African Americans still faced continuing political and social injustice (“Civil Rights and the 1950s”). Thousands of people fought to make America more inclusive. The 1950’s hardly gave African Americans any opportunity to expand.
