Also people are also wanting it banned because it has been causing too much trouble in places that started to have. People want it down also because it is a sign of slavery and it is a symbol of a deadly attack on the
People have been fighting over a flag for far too long. It is cloth stained with dye on a pole. Why does something made with cloth and stitches have to separate a country based on freedom? Some people argue the Confederate flag is an item of racism, and should be banned from being flown. Others believe it is “just culture” and “heritage”, nothing more than an item of history that can be used for learning purposes and historical Reenactments.
As a result the Confederate flag shows many signs of disapproval and many signs of unkind emotions. Furthermore, The Confederate Flag does not promote unity in the U.S. The Confederate soldiers were U.S citizens who took up arms against our government. These were individuals who killed American soldiers.
America is known around the world as united and free… at least that’s what people say. As Americans, we say these things, but from many perspectives America seems quite flawed. For example, we say we are united, but take a look at our government, we are politically divided. Lets just say, America is viewed in many different ways. Throughout the poems, “I Hear America Singing” by Walt Whitman and “Let America Be America Again” by Langston Hughes, two opposing views are represented.
In this movie the guys that drive that car are the rebels of the movie. They are considered somewhat of the outlaws.(confederate remembrance) There are multiple statues, street names, buildings, schools, holidays, military bases, and monuments that are just some examples representing confederate soldiers or leaders in over 30 states that are at risk of being removed or changed. Although most people do not understand what the confederacy actually stands for. Most think it is a sign of racism but in reality it is a flag the represented the south just like the north had their own flag.
This war was known as the American Civil War. What made this war so different from the others was that America was fighting against each other. We were our own enemy. Many things, such as slavery, economic and political systems, bought
Due to the many controversial and negative issues going on in today 's society relating both the war and flag, I have decided to research the main cause of the bloodshed and the true meaning of the Confederate battle flag. As of today, society has come up with the
Progress, greed, racism, and economic gain are the causes of much bloodshed and almost the complete destruction of a nation. Liberty is the sole reason for years of debates and compromises; two sides (North and South) with a different interpretations and a way of life. For Southerners liberty meant the right to own slaves and for slaves and most Northerners liberty meant ending
He said, “You are using old technique, which was used in Hitler Germany in order to create a scare here--” (L 57-58). While this is showing HUAC was trying to create a scare to the people, he was proving a point that their scare wasn 't scaring Lawson. HUAC was a very powerful committee who accused many Hollywood producers of being communist. These accusations caused loss in Hollywood business because Americans began to be fearful that Hollywood was communist and they didn 't want to give any of their money to people who were not of what they believed. Even though some believe that HUAC was the main cause to the Red Scare, I believe Senator Joseph McCarthy caused more of a scare due to his accusations of the United States State Department and government.
The Los Angeles riots began on April 29, 1992. The riots started because four white police officers beat Rodney King, an African American. Rodney had been pulled over by police after an eight-mile chase and then refused to get to the ground. A man had videotaped the scene and it was broadcasted in the United States (Wallenfeldt). Jeff Wallenfeldt, the author of the article published on Britannica, wrote, “Although many Angelenos in the late 20th century prided themselves on their city’s ethnic diversity, there was a strong feeling on Los Angeles’s minority communities that the city’s predominantly white police force practiced racial profiling and engaged in racist brutality against African Americans and Hispanics” (Wallenfeldt).
Throughout the excerpts of Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” he makes many compelling points on why America during that time was in the perfect position for independence. In the first paragraph Paine writes about how the economy of the colonies could thrive if they were not under the rule of the Britain. He makes points on how if America was not limited in trade by Britain and the colonies had its own legislative branch the economy would be a lot stronger. In the second paragraph Thomas Paine talks about how in the past if the colonies tried to rebel their military would not have been ready but during the time “Common Sense” was written the American military was ready. Another factor in why Paine supported Colonist independence was because it was
Throughout history, there is a vast majority of opinions solely on one event in history but in order for someone to grasp an idea of something, such as the American Revolution, one has to look and evaluate the different ideas on a historical event. In the case of the American Revolution authors Charles Inglis, Thomas Paine, Howard Zinn, and speaker Patrick Henry had to compare and contrasting ideas. Inglis and Zinn identified the revolution as something that was unnecessary as there are more advantages in staying with Britain and as a result of the revolution there are more problems, while Paine and Henry suggested that the revolution is needed due to the subordination and inflicted pain to the colonists, and King George III not being able
The Confederate Flag has been around for hundreds of years. It has harmed nobody, but it has sparked a debate that has almost divided the country in half over its true meaning. The Confederate Flag was introduced in 1861 as part of the civil war. The flag represented 11 southern states that seceded from the union. The country in which it represented was the Confederate States of America.
In the article, “What I Pledge Allegiance To” by Kiese Laymon. American people are blind when they see injustice and condemn people who question how this country is being run. If we can all learn to accept people ideas and believe we can move forward as a nation. Every American is born with a right to free speech, which should give the person the chance to speak their respective mind without the fear of prosecution. It is our social responsibility to keep hate from infecting this nation, we need to understand that if we accept every type of person who lives in the United States.
As Winston Churchill stated, “The flags of the Confederate States of America were very important and a matter of great pride to those citizens living in the confederacy. They are also a matter of great pride for their descendants as part of their heritage and history,” but in present day, the American people are claiming the meaning of the confederate flag is hate and discrimination. In South Carolina, the confederate flag was taken down and will be placed in a museum after a heated debate stemming from a mass shooting of nine black churchgoers in a historical Charleston church during bible study. The vote was 103 to 10 in favor of removing the flag. The shooter was white supremacist, Dylann Roof.
