(naacp.org) Civil rights today is still fought because it is important to everyone. The NAACP has proven this because they have changed many people's perspectives on civil rights. When people are living in the United States, everyone should have civil rights. From the past and into the future citizens have had to fight for their rights. People would deny them because they had no belief that everyone is treated equally.
Nixon also tests America's patriotism by saying “Honest and patriotic Americans have reached different conclusions”. Nixon references American’s morals with the statement “the wheel of destiny has turned so that any hope the world has for the survival of peace and freedom will be determined by whether the American people have the moral stamina”. Nixon again has a tone in his speech of if you do not support the war you are not a true American. Nixon also disrespects any American who does not support the war and thus “peace and freedom” for he believes they do not have any true American
Just as Martin L. King Jr. protested against the racial injustices years ago and non violently protested, students are finding other ways to stand up for what they believe in and what should be fair treatment for all. Protests of this one action have caused a feeling of despair and wonder for the country because it has brought us all apart and makes family and friends hate each other instead of enjoying each other. Once the racial discrimination and social injustices end in high schools and all around, our country might actually be able to become one and the protests will be able to stop. That will make everyone happy and we can continue to grow together as a community, country, and
Equality or Not…. What would our society be like if we had rules that forced everyone to be equal? Ayn Rand illustrates this in Anthem. The society is overrun by rules that control the citizens lives. The rules are supposed to be there to make everyone equal, but in reality they are making everything exponentially unequal.
Martin Luther King Jr. realized this, and preached a change that the African Americans have would force only through nonviolence. Martin Luther King’s philosophy made more sense for America in the 1960s because it pushed America forward, it stopped bloodshed through nonviolence, and it helped make everyone more equal and together by showing them the errors of their ways. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X seemed to have a respect among one another, though their philosophies were quite different from each other. Malcolm X made it clear that he believed that the African Americans and the White people should remain separate but should be considered equal to each other. He told white people “work in conjunction with us-each of us working among our own kind.” Martin Luther King Jr., on the other hand, preached equality and desegregation.
Lincoln’s use of biblical allusions and scripture captivated the reason of the Framing and the sentiment from the American Revolution. The people believed their rights were being infringed upon concerning slavery and the property within man, resulting in a desire for secession as a revolutionary attempt to save their existing property within their slaves. Lincoln’s political religion denounced their argument and justification for secession by reawakening public sentiment. The rational principles of the revolution were turned to sentiment and this sentiment is the political religion in which Lincoln grounded his beliefs. It reminds the people that the bloodshed of the revolution was connected to the bloodshed of the Civil War.
The Haitian revolution was fought based on the American and French revolutions principals, which paved the way for Universal human rights we now have today. The Haitian revolution fought for years to ensure everyone got the right to liberty, and not just a select few, such as only white males. It took many different leaders to rise and take control of the revolution and ensure that all people have the right to freedom. Many had to die in this bloody conquest for freedom, but in doing so they gave people everywhere the ability to ending slavery and gaining their own liberty.
First, peasants and their family line had more rights after the magna carta was signed. ”we also grant to all freemen of our kingdom all the underwritten liberties to be had and holden [held ] by them and their heir”(magna carta clause 2). Before the magna carta King john could have just sent anyone to jail because he just doesn't like them or like what they were doing . with the magna carta he could no longer do this unless the law they broke was a law in the magna carta . they gave the government a stable and equal ground .
If she is able to stand up and argue for what is right and what she believes, she could help fight against some of the world’s biggest, most confusing problems. Another example is when she created a resolution to give people from World War II the freedom to not return to their homelands. In her speech she exclaimed that “We must consider first the rights of man and what makes men more free— not governments, but man!” Pg 96 She pushed through to protect the rights of people she didn’t even know. Even though she must have been fighting a hard battle;”The Russians angrily objected…” she was able to let her idea pass. Perseverance is key if one wants to be an ambassador of UNICEF, and so Eleanor Roosevelt would make the best candidate.
The Fourteenth Amendment (Amendment XIV) The amendments were put into place to protect the rights and civil liberties of all American citizens from the federal government. However, prior to the fourteenth amendment, there was no certainty with the constitution. The constitution did not state in a clear enough way who was protected under it and exactly what rights you had as an American Citizen. The 14th amendment was in response to the just passed thirteenth amendment, which ended slavery in all of the southern states. This document drastically changed the perception of the citizens, showing that it protected the civil rights of whites and blacks.
