Sherman Alexie’s text The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfights in Heaven impacts the way the society thinks about Native Americans. Everyone of his short stories talks a little about what life was like being an Indian in the 20th century. This includes life outside the Indian reservation, poverty, etc.… A quote from the book that helps explain that is, “Books and beer are the best and worst defense”. There are always books and beer to go to when things get rough, but that 's not
Fisher starts off with a bit of information to warn and tell us the risks of this serious epidemic, she says, “ Two hundred thousand Americans are dead or dying. A million more are infected. Worldwide, forty million, sixty million, or a hundred million infections will be counted in the coming few years.” These factual statistics are meant to warn the nation that we are all at risk no matter our race, political party, gender, age, etc. Fisher shows us that she is a credible source on this topic because she suffers from HIV and can relate to many people out there who also suffer from this virus.
The pit bull is a breed of dog with a reputation that has been skewed by misrepresentation of evidence and flat out lies. The pit bull has no inherent dangerous characteristics and banning it would make no progress in safety. It is common knowledge that all animals are controlled by their instincts. Dogs may bite or growl at a person to warn them, but if a person doesn’t listen to that warning, it is the person’s fault. Banning pit bulls will not change an animal’s natural instinct and make people safer.
Tail docking should be illegal because it detracts from the dogs natural look, upsets the pet, and is just unnecessary. One of the many reasons that tail docking should not be allowed is because it detracts from the animal's natural look. It may be cute, but if dogs are born and bred with long tails, they should live out their life with the tail they were born with. Some dog breeds have naturally shorter tails. There is absolutely no reason to make it any shorter than

Se Habla Espanol is an essay by Tanya Maria Barrientos, whom discusses her struggles with learning her native language as an adult after years of discrimination for the color of her skin, regardless of being raised in America. Initially when I read the essay, I believed that it could only apply to Latino women, due to it being published in a magazine directed towards Latino women, but before I finished reading the passage I realized that her story could apply to anyone struggling to learn their native tongue or a language in general. So I quickly discovered that you can’t judge a passage by the periodical it’s published in. Her social development and sense of belonging were greatly influenced by the way she perceived stereotypes against her
Her bully, Harold Barton, tends to say mean things about her not having a dad and her brother running away. This shows as Harold says “Face the facts. You and you brother are weirdos. And you got no dad” This of course brings her self-esteem down but Cedar doesn’t really care about what he says.
In The Myth of Seneca Falls the reader can understand why she wrote this book by analyzing her research and comments included. The book begins with a debate within the antebellum feminist-abolitionist coalition. The American Equal Rights Association (AERA) brought together women’s rights activists and abolitionists soon after the Civil War. This organization voted to support the Fifteenth Amendment, which led them to prioritize black suffrage over women’s suffrage.

According to the Department of Justice, in their Patriot Act section, this act allows investigators to use the tools that were already available to investigate organized crime and drug trafficking. This allows law enforcement to use surveillance against crime, and allows law enforcement to investigate without terrorists fleeing, or destroying evidence. This act also created better information sharing among government agencies so that they can communicate more efficiently in order to uncover terrorist plots before they are completed. It has succeeded in its intention to share information within the FBI and local law enforcement. One of the greatest things that this act enabled was that it allowed the law to be updated in order to reflect new technologies.
The Willmar movie will help us to understand how sexual discrimination prevailed and what has changed. Willmar 8 strike happened years ago but started what is still being worked on, and what several people are benefitting from. It is a reflection of what motivated and how war against sexism started, since it is not over but just camouflaged. How Women are portrayed in the film
In class last week, we discussed how a border is defined not merely as a political line dividing nations, but an undefined barrier that exists between different cultures. A borderland in Texas, I thought, was just cities or towns that just happen to reside along the border after the U.S. acquisition of Texas in 1848. I never thought much of the community within the borderland areas other than believing that most communities there had a deep-rooted Mexican culture. However, Gloria Anzaldúa best defined the border as, “a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary.” The community within the borderlands is not as simply defined as a borderline.

TEXAS/MEXICO BORDER: GEOGRAPHY/ISSUES/CHALLENGES The Mexican border with the State of Texas is a large, rugged and sparsely populated area covering approximately 1,254 miles of the total 1,900 miles of American border territory with Mexico. The river that makes the natural border along the Western and Southwestern part of the state, the Rio Grande, is one of the major means of illegal entry for individuals wishing to enter the United States. The varying patterns of the Rio Grande are responsible for areas measuring less than 75 yards in width, making aquatic entry an enticing and relatively simple solution. Texas has a notoriously porous border and has been exploited for this reason for decades, the agents of the United States Customs and
The United States of America has been a long-standing symbol of liberty; the pledge of allegiance even states “with liberty, and justice for all.” However, digging not-so-deep into America’s government and justice system reveals anything but liberty or justice. Luckily, there are many people out there willing to push to reform the system and help those who have been treated unfairly. Bryan Stevenson is one of those people, and his anecdote about Walter McMillian intends to show the deep rooted problems in the justice system, as well as the fairly easy solutions to make strides towards repairing it and the people who have been wronged by it. He does this by using a somber tone about the life of McMillian, as well as using a hopeful one when
