So you just any of them. There are no innocent white people, because every one of them is potential nigger-killer, if not an actual one. ”Guitar is dehumanizing white people in the same way that he feels like he has been dehumanized as a black man. Gutiar no longer views white people as humans because, he states that every white person could kill black people, no matter, what circumstances. Gutiar is also dehumanizing white people because throughout this section, he is speaking of white people’s death so openly.
Then the worst happened when Jones wanted his followers to commit a “revolutionary act” of suicide by drinking Flavor Aid laced with cyanide so they could show they’re no longer controlled by the U.S. government, including the murders of the a California Congressman and journalists who went to Jonestown investigating reports of abuse, only a few of Jones’s followers survived the massacre by running away into the jungle. The purpose the author wants us to know what happened on
In the essay, “Rerouting Rap Music,” Nick Vinci focuses on the issues of censoring rap music and the common stereotypes of the genre. He states how the media and older generations criticize rappers due to their music displaying violence, drugs, and ignorance, which is why rap censorship is encouraged. Nick attempts to contradict the claims by revealing the social, political, and economic messages rappers send to listeners. Nick uses interesting sources, facts, and comments to support his topic, however, there are a few concerning errors in his essay.
This is a big deal because blacks were not given the respect that they deserved, however, this was one moment. His legacy does not portray the respect that he had for blacks or slaves but instead his legacy is violence. Source 2 has a letter from Mahala Doyle. She writes “I do feel gratified to hear that you were stopped in your fiendish career at harper’s ferry… [For you] entered my house at midnight and arrested my husband and two boys, and took them out of the yard and in cold blood shot them dead in my hearing.”
The character’s evil, immoral, and despicable behavior is caused by the way that they consistently put little to no thought to their actions. In “The Lottery”, the people of the village are killing other townspeople without even thinking that it might be a bad idea. In “The Sniper” The main character kills some people for no reason and kills his brother. This isn’t just a recurring theme in the two short stories that I chose to write about, it is a very common thing throughout history and still happens to this day.
Michael Brown’s shooting involves a racial tension between blacks and whites since Brown was unarmed and surrendered. In Ferguson, the majority of people are African Americans, and the majority of police officers are white. On the night of the shooting incident, Brown was walking home and confronted by Wilson because Wilson thought Brown was suspicious. There was a struggle between Brown and Wilson. According to Brown’s friend, Wilson started the fight.
I believe that psychopathic serial offenders like Jeffrey Dahmer are not capable of forming a conscience. If Jeffrey Dahmer murdered maybe one person in self-defense, it may be possible that he would have shown some remorse for the crime that he did. Although this crime took place in Wisconsin, it was a serious crime against society. Jeffrey Dahmer killed 17 innocent young African American men, and most of his victim were in their early twenties (O 'Meara, 2009). He would choose his victims at a location several blocks from his home, walk them to his house and offer them a laced drink mixed with a sleep aid.
Cullen couldn’t control his anger, and lacked a conscience which he demonstrated when he tried to fight against bullying by spiking drinks at a party with rat poison (Jennifer Hash, 2006, p.1). Charles believed that being victim of bullying justifies killing people. He justified killing people because he thought of himself as a victim. He was the target of bullying in school and in the Navy. Then, both his mother and brother died young.
Police don’t use that kind of force on white men, but when it comes down to people who are different they suffer with more injuries. This past year, a Dallas police officer was charged with the murder of a unarmed 15-year old boy, Jordan Edwards. The officer “discharged multiple rounds from his patrol rifle as the vehicle drove past him” (CNN news). I understand that some people may argue that the officer was just doing his job, but in this case the cop used excessive force and lied to the authorities about what happen. This shooting and many others are protested by the Black Lives Matter movement and other organizations, which is proactive in ending racial police brutality.
In the 1980s, we saw many different genres of music emerge, genres such as Pop, Rock, and R&B. But a new genre emerged that sparked a lot of controversy: “Gangsta Rap” otherwise known as Hip Hop. Rappers/Rap groups such as NWA, Run DMC, Big Daddy Kane, and more changed the industry with catchy tunes and lyrics that talked about hard topics like slavery, violence, and police brutality. These lyrics sometimes caused major conflict, whether between races or with civilians and police. Hip Hop was very controversial in the 80s.
Mr. Sterling was selling cds outside of a store and a homeless man approached him asking him for money he showed his REGISTRATED gun and said leave me alone. The police arrived and took Mr. Sterling to the ground and had him restrained when they said he reached for his gun then the police office shot him in the chest. I feel as if everyone was to come together as a community in the places they live then we could stop this issue sooner than later. This situation is sad and heart breaking and sad to many families because their loves ones and friends are being killed by the police force for no reason at all. We the United States of American can stop this issue with no problem we just need everyone’s help and
But this also, in a way, shows that it could come to being accepted by society in the future, and loved. Elvis and the Beatles were considered taboo when they first started out, and now they are cultural icons. Heavy metal is also “often used as a scapegoat to distract from the thoroughly more complicated societal problems” (citation needed 4). Here is an example: if somebody walks into a school and shoots someone, and they were a fan of pop music, nobody would think twice and just assume that the person was a deranged killer. If somebody else walked into another school and shot someone, and they happened to be a metal fan, then society would say that metal music drove that person to kill.
Another form of discrimination is police brutality to black minorities. Black minorities in the United states of america are beaten, violated and murdered by officers of the law that sword to protect and serve them. Police brutality is an issue that needs to be stopped. One example of police brutality was the incident regarding Michael Brown. Michael Brown was a 18 year old African American that was fatally shot by a white officer by the name of Darren Wilson.
Victims of color rarely get their accomplishments broadcasted by the media. Instead the media broadcasts criminal records or other troubling aspects from their past. This sends the message that when it’s partially the victim 's fault that a bad thing happend to them. For example after the tragic death of mike brown they depicted him as “no angel” while eagerly looking for a reason why the unarmed teenager deserved to die. “Studies show implicit biases lead many of us to see innocent Black children as guilty adults (Johnson).”
