And we were challenging them not only on racial grounds but we were challenging them on the existence of a whole group of people who are the underclass of this country, white and black, who are not represented” (Americanswhotellthetruth). While on a highway, Moses was ambushed by a machine gun that hit his car and injured his partner which was also a SNCC worker, Moses also survived a violent attack by a police dog outside the City Hall in Greenwood.

All you need to do is press three buttons in your phone which are 9,1, and 1 when you see somebody abusing an animal, but to sit there and just watch is wrong and by all means you are just as guilty as the person abusing the animal. Don’t you agree? If you agree I hate to break it to you but there are people who sit, watch, and worst of all enjoy seeing innocent dogs being forced to fight. Dog fighting is a sad sadistic or contest where two dogs specifically bred, and trained to fight are placed in a pit and forced to fight sometimes to the death. Dog fighting goes back to the 1750’s and was legal up until 1866 when Henry Bergh made dog fighting against the law in all 50 states.
There are some places where dog fighting is legal such as Fila Brasileiro, Dogo Argentino, the Tosa Inu and the Presa Canario and much more. Dog fighting was originally in England (instead of dogs they used bears and other animals) but was later outlawed because they “made” a breed of pit bulls (Staffordshire Bull Terrier). After a dogfight if/when the dog(s) get hurt the owners don 't treat any of the injuries. If the dog(s) die in a fight it is known as the biggest disgrace that could happen in a fight. There are many types of dogfighting, such as dog baiting.
Aggressive Dog Breeds “Nationwide, the No. 1 reason why dog owners take their pet to a veterinary behaviorist is to manage aggressive behavior” (Dog, 2009). Many people think that there are dog breeds that are very aggressive. When these hackneyed violent dogs can be very sweet. Any dog can be aggressive and can become aggressive; but, that is no reason to kick them out.
“Pit Bulls are beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of a man without the vices”. (“A quote by George Gordon Byron.” ) People mistreat Pit Bulls and use them in illegal dog fights causing them to be aggressive. Most people think that since Pit Bulls have a strong, fierce appearance they are aggressive. One reason Pit Bulls are put out on the street is because some places have banned ownership of them. People who use Pit Bulls in these illegal dog fights torture and use them as bait.
After Snowball had finished his speech about the windmill, napoleon had called for his dogs with a “high pitched whimper,” to chase Snowball off the farm. The dogs created fear in all of the animals, making it easy for Napoleon to take over the leadership of Animal Farm. The dogs were the puppies that Napoleon had taken away from their mothers and “reared privately,” implying that Napoleon had intended to control the dogs for his own bodyguards from the beginning. The dogs would also prevent rebellion against Napoleon by letting out “menacing,” growls every time an animal would question Napoleon’s authority any further. Though later in the chapter, Napoleon orders his dogs to slaughter any of the animals who had previously questioned his authority on Animal Farm.
Research was found to try to notify and persuade people into taking action in the spaying and neutering of their animals, eliminating animal abuse as well as dog fighting. Before getting into persuading readers; they should know why pit bull breeds get such a bad rap, as well as where the breed came from. Today’s pit bull is a descendant of the original English bull -baiting dog (Position). These dogs were bred to bite and hold bulls, bears, and other larger animals around the face and
On March 7, 1965, in Selma, Alabama, the first of three Civil Right marches took place on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The purpose of these peaceful marches was to protest the discriminatory voter registration practices that kept African-American citizens in Alabama from voting. As the peaceful protesters crossed the bridge, they were greeted by Alabama state troopers, who instructed them to end the protest immediately; when the protesters refused, the state troopers unleashed a barrage of attacks. Protesters were attacked by police dogs, beaten with clubs, and had their eyes stung by tear gas; all of which, were caught on camera, as activists asked that the march be publicized-not knowing that it would become violent. This event came to be known as “Bloody Sunday”.
Martin Luther King Jr, was born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. He was one of the most popular and effective leader of the African American struggle for civil rights in the United States and to this day his words are having a great impact in our society. “He was known for his philosophy of nonviolent direct action to galvanized thousands of Americans, both black and whites, to press for granting the full measure of human and political rights to African Americans”( “Martin Luther King, Jr.” ). He had some of his biggest accomplishments during the Civil Rights Movement, however his leadership was the key to the movement’s success in ending the legal segregation of African Americans in the South and other parts of the United States by

When examining the argument of whether BSL is fair to pit bulls, one must view both sides of the debate. The reason why the pit bull is thought of as such an aggressive dog, is that these dogs were bred specifically for their strength. "Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting." (DogTime) Over the last forty years the pit bull has been a large debate because of the amount of fatal attacks that have been from these dogs. "In 2015, the combination of pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 91% of all dog bite-related fatalities."
The Act of 1835 stated that besides cattle, they would also add “bulls, dogs, bears and sheep”(World Library). Along with a law saying that cockfighting and bear-baiting were also banned. Around the time of the 1835 act, the Stafford Shire Bull Terrier was created and was brought to America. It spread all over the U.S. Even in the 1860’s when dog fighting became illegal in most states, it continued to become an American pastime.
Due to his high-profile position with the NAACP, Evers became a target for those who opposed racial equality and desegregation. He and his family were subjected to numerous threats and violent actions over the years, including a firebombing of their house in May 1963.

The city’s police leader, Eugene “Bull” Connor, was also notorious for his willingness to use brutality in combating radical demonstrators, union members, and blacks. The night of the bombing there man angry black protestors. Governor Wallace sent out hundreds of policeman and state troopers to break up the large angry crowd. 2 others were killed that night one by police and the other by racist white thugs. Upon learning of the bombing at the Church, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. sent a telegram to Alabama Governor George Wallace, a staunch and vocal segregationist, stating bluntly: 'The blood of our little children is on your hands."
“March On Selma,” an image shot around the ending of the Civil Rights Movements by an unknown author, seems to depict a scene of violence, and an underlying feeling of Maliciousness. The photo focuses on one woman who was pulled away from the protesters seemingly and is being bit by a German Shephard police dog. The police don’t even try to restrain the dog from biting into her, let alone pull the dog away from her, which shows the truly brutal nature of most of the police force. Many of the people in the background are looking on disapprovingly of the police’s actions and intentions, and many shoot them dirty looks and glares. A large amount of the students & adults protesting here are there as a result of the thirty-two teachers who were
