It is because of this, that for the first time in its history, the Red Cross responded to, and cared for survivors, of a catastrophe that was not the result of nature, but rather a man-made disaster. After being sent to Tulsa, Willows wrote, “it seemed clear that the trouble did not have any providential causes, and, as the Red Cross had never taken a hand in man-made disasters, I called Washington with the report that: there was an unknown number of homeless refugees, all negroes; there was no adequate relief organization in town; on account of the divisions between the whites and negroes…”. The American Red Cross responded within the first 24 hours of the riot and found over 8000 homeless African Americans. The Red Cross also found that African Americans were denied adequate treatment and set up a makeshift hospital in a local school, and manned two first aid and infant welfare stations. While working in Tulsa, a Red Cross nurse stated, “I can never erase the sights of my first visit to the hospital.

In 1873, Susan B. Anthony gave an infamous speech on women’s right to vote. She talks and gives examples of her being a citizen, and every citizen should have the right to vote. She’s trying to show people that her voting wasn’t a crime, in order to convince them that women should be able to vote along with men. She uses a very firm and disappointed tone throughout her speech, more to get her point across to the people she is talking to.
Law enforcement that sees black people as criminals rather than human beings with full and deserving lives is the problem. A justice system that rarely prosecutes or convicts police officers who kill innocent people in the line of duty is the problem"(Gay 1).

Yousafzai wants women to stop being held back so they can be as successful as men. She has to use civil disobedience to spread the message because so many people are against this message because so many people are narrow minded and she hopes to convince them.

I fear that the police is going to become the new KKK.In the article of Jim Crow Policing Bob Hebert stated,”People who object to the harassment are often threatened with arrest for disorderly conduct”. In other words Bob is saying no matter the police can harass you and you can 't do anything about it which is unfair. The Jim Crow Policing article in paragraph nine basically summarize how police would stop people of color because they dressed like a gangster or dressed like they are suspicious of doing something. The police also stop people of color by the way they move shifty.
The stolen valor act is about lying about having military medals and the supreme made it illegal in 2012. People were claiming that they were in the military to get money and properties. I think it is a really good thing that there is a law in place for this. John Abel was charged with robbing a bank with two other men.

The law came into effect as an attempt to protect African Americans from being broken out of jail by angry mobs and lynched. The goal was to take the power out of the hands of the people and allow African Americans the benefit of the doubt by providing them with the opportunity to stand trial without fear that outside individuals would take the law into their own hands. What is most ironic and unfortunate for Jasmine is that she was charged with a law based on the intentions of protecting black people while she herself was acting in the believe that she was aiding a young black woman. One could easily assume that her charges would be dropped after learning all of the facts. Instead she she was sentenced to 90 days in jail.

According to Justice At Stake , “An ideal bench is representative of the larger community, including women, persons of color, members of the LGBT community, persons with disabilities and other underrepresented groups.” However, the verdicts that the courts pass can still be biased and unfair. Other opinions may include the fact that Jim Crow laws are now illegal. “1968 officially ended the ability of any state to discriminate, disenfranchise, or otherwise restrict any individual on the basis of race,” George Washington University stated. Nonetheless, movements like #blacklivesmatter and #PassERPA (End Racial Profiling Act) disagree.
Nikole Hannah-Jones, in the article "A Letter from Black America" says that police are choosing to defend themselves instead of the black community. Hannah-Jones ' statement "By calling the police, you are inviting this big system – that, frankly, doesn 't like you – into your life," is rational because of detrimental previous
