Equality for all. Do the majority of coaches and parents really want equality for all athletes? The answer to this question is, surprisingly, under discrepancy. Title IX, a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded educational activity and or program, is starting to be thought of as “over the top.” Title IX faces controversy as some think that it takes away from male sports. However, the main purpose is to stop using federal money to support sex discrimination in programs.
In “Harrison Bergeron” people aren’t truly equal. In this short story, they took equality to the next level. Most people think that equality is everyone being treated with the same amount of respect. Appearance has nothing to do with equality in today’s society. Although looking the same and having the same level of intelligence may decrease jealousy, people shouldn’t force others to change because of this.
Why is To Kill a Mockingbird banned? Many people have come to realize that the award winning To Kill a Mockingbird was banned and challenged countless times. Although there are several offensive scenes in the book, very many people are outraged that their child cannot read this award winning novel. The question is, why is this novel banned? By examining the profanity, racial content, and references to rape, it’s deemed inappropriate for teens to read and is banned from several school libraries and lessons in school.
It is usually in countries with dictators where women don’t have equal rights and cannot work or go to school. Many people believe that we should be trying to make things better so that we have a fair and equal society. “While men’s rights are guaranteed by specific language in the Constitution women’s equal rights aren’t mentioned” Carolyn
Woman suffrage was a rough time for woman. They proved in many ways, to men and the government, that they were capable of having the responsibility to vote. Except, no one seemed to care and thought that they were not ready. Allowing women to vote is a right because otherwise it would be considered oppression, women are just as capable as men to vote, and they will help improve the government. First of all, if women were not granted the right to vote, it would be considered oppression.
As a full amendment in our constitution, it should not be changed simply because it’s causing our country inconvenience in some people’s opinion. It will also cause more struggle and poverty for immigrants, legal or illegal, in America, which is something American’s have been working very hard to prevent in recent years. (Ronald Rotunda "Birthright Citizenship Benefits the
In the article “American Jerks,” author Todd Schwartz wants readers to believe that the society we live in is not yet civilized. People are afraid to speak to one another because they don’t want to hurt each other’s feelings. We summed up terms and names to suit everyone 's needs and convictions and called it politically right. I truly agree with the points Schwartz made because the increase of technology has caused the American people to forget how to communicate and everyone is egotistical. To begin with, the expansion of innovation has brought about the American individuals to overlook how to impart.
The Court issues an opinion but the problem lies in that Congress can overturn this ruling via amendment or revision to the original law. Striking down laws doesn’t give the Supreme Court ability to protect minorities, it gives the Court power to make a ruling that is left up to Congress to accept and implement or to reject and amend. Thus, Congress has the true power to protect minorities. However, the sheer fact that the Supreme Court declares an opinion, whether Congress amends it or not, is sufficient proof to the fact that the Court can protect minorities. Further, our government is extremely divided, and has been for many decades, thus making it harder for them to make new laws or initiate the amendment process.
"The United States government did something that was wrong — deeply, profoundly, morally wrong. It was an outrage to our commitment to integrity and equality for all our citizens... clearly racist." Even before the speech was given, there was fierce public disapproval at the study. The trial was widely regarded as unethical and racist by both experts and the general public (Brookes and Paul e12). There was widespread cry that the Tuskegee study was outrageously immoral and cruel, even deceiving towards the victims.
In our advanced 21st century, it is hard to imagine our society as anything short of perfect. After all, we have come a long way from our seafaring ancestors. However, the reality is that despite how we may sometimes avoid seeing it, our society is anything but perfect. A very prevalent issue today is that despite laws being set in place to enforce the equal treatment of men and women, women all over the world today still face poor treatment and discrimination. Because of how deep and long this problem has run, revising discriminatory laws may not abolish discrimination and legislating laws that endorse gender equality may not necessarily create equality.
