The flag represents freedom and justice and those who are being oppressed feel as though these certain rights are being taken away and that is why it is okay for someone to kneel during the National Anthem. While many people believe that kneeling during the National Anthem is wrong and is disrespectful to the country’s ideals, what many Americans do not realize is that if they look past their beliefs and try
Kneeling during the national anthem is completely irrelevant to the problem trying to be addressed. It only has caused disruption and arguments. People supporting the cause believe they are being treated unfairly in some way, but if you ask anyone, any group, or minority, they’re going to tell you how they’re being treated
Now those people with color that are kneeling during the National Anthem will not get much better treatment because of how you are disrespecting our country. So next time when you kneel, think about how other people are going to feel and how will it make the situation better or
Colin Kaepernick 's right to protest is not being used in the most effective manner it could be. He is kneeling during the National Anthem, which is highly disrespectful to the men and women who risk their lives to give him his right to protest. He is protesting minorities are under siege in the United States and are not granted the same opportunities as non-minority groups. The recent police shootings on African Americans specifically is Kaepernick 's main protest against. All U.S. citizens are effected by this protest because it is so controversial, it could start a race war on a National Level that can be prevented.
"Therefore, Thomas Jefferson is not a hypocrite because he wants slavery to end and, he believes it 's a awful thing. When he wrote the declaration of independence he did not know african americans were capable of learning, but once he was exposed to it, his opinion changed. Jefferson want nothing more than to end slavery and he would do anything to make that
According to the passage,a tale of segregation,William and his father had to wait to get water because they were as the whites called them “negroes” because back then in the 1960 whites still thought they were better than blacks. Williams dad in the passage states “this was an act of real hatred and prejudice”. He says this meaning that this act is not right and is really cruel also it means that someone is biased or likes a different race more than one. In the passage a tale of segregation,williams father says “There gonna come a day when this won 't be anymore”. When he says that he 's referring that one day there won 't be anymore biased people towards whites there won 't be anymore people who call african american people negroes.
Another thing that took courage was leading the United States into the Civil War. He didn’t want this to happen, and he didn’t want our country to have to fight each other. But he knew that if he
A deep wound could never be easily healed as many colored refer racism too. Racism is a terrible action that many Americans eventually ended up doing in order to make their slaves do everything which involves their work. Now in modern day slaves really doesn't exist anymore but a new type of racism has started to build up by the people that thought racism was good in the first place. I believe the issue of injustice in the form of racism does still exists in modern day. This issue does still exist of unequal jobs, justice for colored people and homeownership.
How can we accept others when they are wrong? When Lennon asks listeners to imagine a life without these cultural, religious, and material divides it makes us believe that acceptance is easy, but it’s not. Everywhere in the world acceptance of others is a very difficult task. Different cultures and beliefs separate us from the normal depending on where you are located. Accepting others ideas doesn’t mean that anyone has to agree, it means that we must be kind to others even if their ways are strange to
Martin wanted change to happen but without violence having to occur. Martin Luther King just wanted equality for all men and women and in this letter he shows his feelings towards the unequal and unjust things that were happening at the time. The
AFA calls for a boycott of Target. Being that Target serves many families it that places extensive pressure on their reputation. AFA just happens to find flaws within the proposed policy. The company will also face backlash for this policy because America might not be ready. Despite the passing of Gay right marriage, there is and have always been controversy over that law.
The US may or may not switch to the metric system in the future, but both sides to the argument have reasonable reasons to which why Americans should or should not switch to metric. Americans protest to the change of measurement but the other half see, why not? To begin with, the French created and started with the metric system and the British founded the other system, which is now renamed and knowns as, the US customary system. America should not switch to the metric system that all other countries follow - which is known as the national system of measurement - because without it America stands out and is different from other countries, also making Americans know more since we learn and use both systems, and it will cause confusion throughout the whole nation. America is different from other nations by many things but one could be the use of measurements.
Now, many people agree that it should not matter what color your skin is, but what kind of a person you are, but sadly, not everyone in the world has looked at it this way. Racist thinking is a bad habit many in the world find difficult to break. The United States has faced this problem. Many years ago, after the Civil War, African Americans were abused and mistreated by the white people.
I believe that the results of Reconstruction have been mixed and i believe that the economy is a problem that needs to be fixed. By not dictating who can have what job based on their race Reconstruction can meet its goal of creating equality for all. During Reconstruction, Americans had very different opinions about the government. In the northern states, most people believed that since the South had seceded before they had to keep an eye on them.
