Throughout the Dr. Suess story “Sneetches” there were these creatures with the only difference—being that one group had a star on their stomachs. The group that didn’t have the star was often excluded and deemed as inferior. After some time of this system an individual came and told the “inferior” creatures that he could help them by adding a star. However, when the “star” creatures saw that they were losing their power they had to change to keep their superiority. When individuals have always had power, and have perceived themselves in some ways superior, equality is threatening.
“What can more certainly arouse race hate, what more certainly create and perpetuate a feeling of distrust between these races, than state enactments which, in fact, proceed on the ground that colored citizens are so inferior and degraded that they cannot be allowed to sit in public coaches occupied by white citizens?”- John Marshall Harlan. On May 18, 1896, the Supreme court passed the separate but equal act on a vote of 7-1. This allowed separate facilities to be made for whites and blacks. This was the result of the Plessy vs Ferguson case, where a man was forced out of a whites-only car because he had African descent. The Supreme court couldn’t find any differences in the train cars, yet separate facilities for blacks had a decrease in quality.

Allen imagined a group in Philadelphia, where basic respect and regard between the races existed and one in which the behavior of one's character, and not the color of his or her skin.

The Conservative Mind by Russell Kirk is a book about the criticism and opinion of the conservative thought. Although in the passage he mentions several men like Tocqueville, Hooker, Hegel, and Burke he furthermore appears to leave out countless of other men. Kirk believes that Edmund Burke is the greatest of modern conservative thinkers, he was not afraid to acknowledge what he thought was right, and to go to a further extent he thinks Burke is the founder of our conservatism. Tocqueville is one of the few men who was actually given satisfying props and recognition. The main reason for this was due to the fact that his lasting impact towards the Englishmen and Americans.

To review conservative ideas and examine their validity for this age is the reason Russell Kirk wrote this book. Kirk states that the mainstream of conservative ideas is followed from 1790 to 1986. This is set to be true in my opinion because now a days we do not see much conservatism. Conservatism is beginning to die off, we are seeing less and less of it each year. Society has changed since then, people now do not necessarily believe the same things that was believed in the 1700s.

There are a few ways that Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois differ in their strivings for racial equality. The reason that these men differ in their views are pretty apparent and go back to the separate arguments that Jane Addams and Elizabeth Cady Stanton produced for women's rights in the 19th century. Jane Addams made some compromises in her push for women's suffrage to make her argument easier to swallow and take a small step towards equality. Stanton puts out her whole argument for total equality which made her argument hard for her generation to accept, but got all the problems on the table.
