For more detailed examples, Rio Olympic is assessed as the worst Olympic because of these reasons. Rio cannot maintain and control the social system, and the debt of the Rio became around 100 billion dollars after Olympic. Better example to compare with Pyeonchang would be the case of Sochi, Russia. Sochi is a beautiful small town in Russia with nice weather. However, this city is now sitting on huge debts from the Olympic.
Both statistics explain how African Americans are segregated and mistreated in American society. To wrap up, police brutality and economic disruption are a plague towards African Americans today. However Black Lives Matter is combating that with political/institutional policies to create

In order to bring more water more efficiently to those who demand it, private companies must seek new sources to meet demand. One of the biggest companies criticized for its unlawful and unethical seizing of water is Nestlé. In the early 2000's, when Nestlé began a spring water mining and pumping operation in Mecosta, Michigan, native Michigan's were outraged. Locals witnessed Nestlé as an "immediate environmental harm to rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands, and habitat in the zone of influence" (MCWS Versus Nestlé). The company also detrimentally affected the native watershed and wetlands in Colorado after they were given permission to withdrawal over the next decade "650 million gallons of Arkansas Valley" water from the area (Water Usage &
Dr. King’s speech is related to my future and the future of others like me because even now we are not provided the opportunities we deserve. In conclusion, Dr. King’s speech is still relevant because even now the racial inequality between blacks and whites is quite large. Things like police brutality are still big issues even in modern society and people are still dying because of it. Like in the case of Eric Garner it was something that never should have come to pass. His speech is even relevant specifically to my life and my future career because of the inequalities in the work force.

Another lyric “Journalism gone gestapoism paparazzo-ism” points out the bias in the media. A lot of the time when news is reported we only hear the part that the media wants us to hear. It’s usually to favour one side above the other and you are never truly getting the full story.
Africville is an African- American reserve, as many of the individuals who live there are descendants of African slaves. Over time, the residents of the village started to experience the effects of environmental racism as dumps, an infectious disease hospital, an abattoir, were placed in and around Africville’s surroundings. They were left vulnerable and with little say since they were racial minorities. Eventually, in the 1960’s they bulldozed Africville and the leftovers outlined a prime example of one of the first ever cases of environmental racism. In 2015, Bill 111, An Act to Address Environmental Racism, passed first reading in the Nova Scotia Legislature.
This is a real life illustration of the extreme segregation of the time. One specific injustice some had to face was, “...a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote” By using such a specific state and situation Dr. King was trying to hit close to home for anyone had to been put in that particular position.
