Around this time the Vietnam War was coming to an end and many Americans began to hate their own country. Author Harvard Sitikoff explained that politics, faith in government by the public and the faith of leaders by the public was lost due to the Vietnam War. Many citizens were upset about the war and didn’t want to support America and it’s leaders. The feeling of patriotism was decreasing, as even Americans did not honor and welcome Vietnam veterans with open arms, but those 2 million-plus Americans who served were criticized, ignored and given no help or support (Sitikoff). This was a low point for America, as there were many protests and hatred directed towards the government, the country, and the citizens who served for the country.
their point is valid they gave them rights and protection then they removed protection they became racist and wanted them out of the government. (Doc D Paragraph One) The Northern Neglect got tired of the freedmen's problems and the ‘carpet-bag government’. They north shifted their attention and their opinion was against Reconstruction policies. (Doc C Paragraph One) They changed their minds and decided they didn't want equal rights after all. “Northern voters grew indifferent to events in the SOuth.” (Doc C Paragraph One) Like I said their points are valid but as the South was active and violent the north published a few articles and ignored.
People in the town have Indians portrayed as extremely superstitious, drunks, and lazy individuals, however; this just not true. One character, Wesley Hayden has an opinion on native Americans, “Nevertheless, he believed Indians, with only a few exceptions, were ignorant, lazy, superstitious, and irresponsible”(33). Maire Little Soldier defines the odds of all those negative aspects said of Native Americans. She is responsible of David along with other things around the Haydens’ house and is a hard worker. However, Wes is still reluctant to have Marie as a Native American gain justice.
So we can see that the most neglected parts of the United States are Indian Reservations. Because of the high poverty rates, Head of Households are being forced to leave the reservation in search of work. This leaves the role of caretaker to grandparents and older siblings. Families are being separated and little is being done to stop it.
Unfortunately, one occurrence that was universal among these widely diverse grouping was desertion. The sick or those thought to be sick were discarded, even children were not immune to this inhumane treatment. “This disaster had struck such fear into the hearts of men and women that brother abandoned brother…and – even worse, almost unbelievable – fathers and mothers neglected to tend and care for their children as if they were not their own” (203). Europe’s attitude became very much indifferent to the sick and dying, there was no religious or fate elements just simply self-preservation. These civilizations responded to their natural disasters in occurrence with how the lived as a society.
Therefore, according to Morgan and Cody (as well as other contemporaries sharing similar viewpoints), as Americans gradually permeated Native American territories and established towns and cities, these Native American communities—supposedly made up of primitive barbarians—would fail to come to terms with American efforts to “civilize” Native Americans, thus resulting in warfare between the U.S. and these Indian tribes, and eventually leading to the total genocide of the Indian population (2). However, although warfare did erupt between the two groups—which resulted in the extermination of the majority of Native Americans—theories of total extinction of the Native Americans were inaccurate for two dominant reasons: one, a small but significant group of tribes remained after the intrusion of White settlers, and two, Indians tribes were not made up of simpleminded brutes, but intelligent peoples who were, initially, willing to negotiate with U.S. envoys before war erupted. Both of these facts disproved the claim that Native American stubbornness to adapt to American civilization would be the only cause of their demise—instead, it was the U.S.’ fault
The Cunninghams are country folks, farmers, and the crash hit them the hardest.” (Lee 27) To clarify, since they were country folk and farmers they were affected badly by the Great Depression. This event had caused them to be penniless. To conclude, the reader learns that the Great Depression had caused the white-collared people to be indigent because the farmers were poor. Farmers couldn’t go to the professional people because they didn’t have money and it was difficult for them to come across
After talking to the commissioner in a heated conversation Achebe writes, “Okonkwo 's machete descended twice and the man 's head lay beside his uniformed body” (Achebe 185) thinking that this act would have the other tribe members in the fight with him. However this was not the case, the other Igbo people enjoyed the white people 's religion and were sick of Okonkwo 's unsympathetic ways of doing things. This lack of help and series of unfortunate events led to Okonkwo 's demise written out by Achebe as “Then they came to the tree from which Okonkwo 's body was dangling and the stopped dead” (Achebe 187). Now ending all that Okonkwo has lived for and leaving his family because of how unsympathetic he really was and acted. In conclusion, in the book Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo 's life falls apart at the seams because of his unsympathetic acts toward his family and the Ibo people.
How can we call ourselves a nation that is trying to prevent racism and discrimination when we still have a racist sports name, which was invented in a very low and racial time for our long native people? Discriminating them and basically stalking the Native Americans of their rough history, this name is in every way disrespectful and filled with disgust. This name was invented when there were social policies to eliminate Native American tribes and Civilization Regulations, which banned and outlawed their traditions. How is this name not offensive and how was it meant out of respect? The Redskins are hated by so many organizations, like the NCAI, other tribes, Civil Rights organizations, school boards and even public officials that there is no way they can get away with the name “Redskins”.
The negative effects of the rebellion are that the people that were a part of the uprising faced unemployment, and damage was done to both public and private property that needed to be paid for and fixed. These effects make people wonder if everything was worth it. But those are the effects of protest-like
