“A lot of people think that the union went to war with the confederacy to end slavery, but they were just trying to preserve the nation from falling apart into different sections” (Pruitt).The main reason why people don't like the confederate flag is because use of racism they see in the confederate flag. it did not start as a racist symbol people made or thought of it in that way. “Some racists display the confederate flag as well as the christian cross and the american flag should these be qualifies as racist as well” ("The New York Times Company"). Most racism ideas come from people who hear or see people killing blacks like the South Carolina church shooting in 2015 where Dylann Roof killed nine black worshipers, or if they just don't understand the history behind the civil war and the flag itself. The flag was associated with the Ku Klux Klan and
Giovanni starts the poem off stating that she is restlessly thinking why “2Pac is not with us”(Giovanni 3) [emphasis added]. Additionally she states “if those who lived by the sword died by the sword there would be no white men on the earth” [emphasis added] (Giovanni 4). She put these lines back to back to distinguish a difference between us being the blacks, and the white men clearly being the white race.She later says that they being the white race killed Tupac for some sort of political action because he was a leader in the black community. She makes this obvious by stating “This is some sort of political action and they picked well/they picked the brightest freshest fruit from the tallest tree”(Giovanni 32/33). When she says they in these quotes she is clearly referring to the white race because she explicitly stated on line 4 that the white race lives violently and they are also the
Upon reaching Charlestown, the houses were unsuitable due to them being burnt down or plundered. The troops forced women into the streets and shot innocent old men. Warren exclaims this violent behavior came upon due to the colonies refusing slavery. Since the colonies were not detached from the mother country, it was an act of vengeance. The quote “we determine to die, or be free,” said by the
CRITIQUE In this article, the intent was to show us the Civil War from a confederate’s perspective and I think it did a great job at that. Showing that the army officers interacted during the war even unearthing the Native American skeletons and gathering them up to see what their ancestors looked like. This article did not concentrate much on the war which I think was a good thing since a lot of people today usually view the confederates as bad people since they were fighting to keep slavery. There is one flaw that I found in this article. The author didn’t show us the part where free slaves were used in the civil war.
In the Lottery the Black Box and Old man Warner represent tradition. In Harrison Bergeron tradition represents their version of equality no one has ever questioned it because of the tyrannical government. One of the main differences in these stories would be at Harrison Bergeron and the Lottery would be Harrison Bergeron died trying to be a martyr and in The Lottery Mrs. Hutchinson died begging for her life. Bergeron knew he was going to die, but wanted to try to make people question what happened to society and that we need to change it. But Mrs. Hutchinson, died begging to save her own life begging them to redraw which would in fact cause the death of another
Civil disobedience is the active, professed opposition to obey certain laws, demands, and commands of a government, or of an occupying international power. Civil disobedience is a symbolic or conventional violation of the law, rather than a rejection of the system as a whole. Civil disobedience is sometimes, though not always, defined as being nonviolent resistance. It is and has been crucial in social change. In other words civil disobedience can be defined as the shape of protest in which the protestors violate a law purposely.
For example, after Nat Turner’s rebellious act against the whites many still thought that slavery should be abolished. Even though they saw Turner’s actions as pure evil they still wanted to get rid of such an immoral violent system as slavery. Not only because it was immoral but because it also brought up the chances that slaves could only put up with so much of it until they would seek for vengeance. I don’t believe Stephan B. Oates was trying to perpetuate a racial divide in the legacy of Nat Turner at all. What he was trying to do by writing the book The Fires of Jubilee was to accurately tell how the events occurred.
The great irony surrounding Cassis throughout the story is that he uses his greatest asset to his fullest potential when he allows Brutus to take effective control of the republican faction. Cassius believes that his nobility of Rome are responsible for the government of Rome. They have allowed a man to gain too much power, way more than he needed, therefore, they have responsibility to stop him. Cassius absolutely hates Caesar, but he also deeply resents being subservient to a tyrant, and there are hints that he will have no trouble fighting for his personal freedom. Cassius does not back down following the almost dictatorial pronouncements of his equal, Brutus, even though he absolutely disagree heartedly with most of Brutus’s decisions.
These slave codes placed harsh restrictions on slaves, depriving them of their rights and turning them into properties. However, slavery has been abolished in the United States of America thanks to many abolitionists. Many slaves are now free men and women. Nothing can be done to repair the wrongs of slavery, for it will always remain in the past. Now, Americans need to look to the future where slavery does not exist, where black and whites are found equal, and where racist is not a factor.
