Dr. Patrick Miller gave an amazing and interesting speech on the issue of the Confederate flag and monuments. The presenter went through the history of what the Confederate flag once stood for and how it became a symbol that affects minorities today. I really like how he was able to relate everything that was occurring in modern times. Something that surprised me is the vast amount of monuments that are still stand to this very day. Dr. Miller told the audience the great lengths people have gone to remove anything that is related to the Confederacy, for example, the many schools in the south were renamed after Obama since they were originally named after Confederate fugues, such as: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
This definitely relates to the first article’s information, because both involve people protesting against Trump and racism, and many groups mentioned in both articles called out that Trump should be impeached, while few other groups from both articles wanted him to remain
After the president was elected into office by the people, protests broke out across the country. People were saying that the results were rigged, and that it was Russia behind it. This has gone so far, that it seems we can’t do anything productive in this country because the main problem is our own citizens
This created controversy. Many came together to protest this law and petition for it to be revoked. Congress eventually repealed the sedition act in march of 1921. Congress and the people have had several disagreements about how the first amendment works. With Congress passing several laws that go against the first amendment.
“What's wrong with the world, mama, People livin' like they ain't got no mamas” This verse illustrates how this generation of people that act off of impulse as if they have no home training or morals being reckless in the decisions that have lasting consequences that not only affect the individual but others as well. Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism, But we still got terrorists here livin' In the USA, the big CIA The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK. This verse talks about all the violence that happens overseas like the feud with Iraq but more so the feuds that we have on the day to day basis: Gang violence, senseless killings over drugs and crimes the actual harm that we cause to each other. But if you only have love for your own race then you only leave space to discriminate and to discriminate only generates hate and when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah Madness is what you demonstrate. In this verse it talks about the tolerance and open- minded; we must have for everyone and not just our own race because to do so only leads to prejudice discrimination.
the British also provided no alternative source of employment to the people who lost their jobs due to the dissolution of the nawab's administration. in addition, the annexation of several indian states was the further causes the britsih to face a rebellion in India. the corruption and inefficiency in the british administration also created further political unrest and the indians surely wanted to get rid of the
The District Court banned racial segregation on all the public transportation in Montgomery. In many ways, this particular incident kicked of an international battle to eliminate racial discrimination against black, with King, Jr in the lead. He got arrested over 30 times for his civil rights activities, which strengthen his opinion/case. Rosa Parks helped strengthen the image that King wanted to show the world, and this was a necessary tactic to his
These protests were not left to protest peacefully, however, as events like the Boston Massacre occurred at many protests. The British soldiers in the colonies took to violence and even to gunfire to stop the mostly peaceful protests of rights. The colonists took this angrily, and wrote in their grievances, “That they have a right peaceably to assemble, consider of their grievances, and petition the king; and that all prosecutions, prohibitory proclamations, and commitments for the same, are illegal” (U.S. Cong.). Congress, trying to not make the same mistakes as Britain, wrote that all people could protest peacefully without any violent recompense, and that they had the freedom to do so.
Every day in America citizens abide by the rules and regulations of a government that in return censors them from what is happening in their own country. By censoring them they deny their ability to freely express themselves as people and create huge controversy in the communities of many citizens. One example is comedian George Carlin who was forced to censor the content in his acts because people believed that it was too profane for his fans and other people in the audience. This, of course, created huge controversy due to the fact that forcing people to censor their words is a violation of their first amendment right to free speech. This was such a big deal because the people of America fought for years for that right.
“In the chaos, it was not immediately clear which agencies did what exactly …” (Levs, 2). This shows the lack of knowledge the authorities had about the situation, and how eager they were to put an end to the riots without thinking about the safety of the protesters. “Chief among them are making decisions like deploying heavily armed officers and using military equipment; which some experts say helped to make a bad decision worse” (Levs, 2). Having the Militarized units, as well as equipment, being brought in caused many people to voice their opinion on the choices being made by the authorities, and how they are affecting the community and the protesters. “Militarization of policing encourages officers to adopt a ‘warrior’ mentality and think of the people they are supposed to serve as enemies” (Levs, 3).
since the revolution had many enemies and few friends peasants were forced to fight and this displeased them. before the revolution the catholic church had a lot of say in the government and a lot of power afterwards some of their power was revoked making it possible to have other religions in france which pissed off the catholic church. with the revolution brought equal rights to every one if that were lost there would be no point in the committee of public safety and it would just be disbanded. to protect the revolution would definitely come before protecting the people. robespierre was basically a dictator after an amount of time and was not thoroughly protecting the people 's rights so he got his head cut off the committee of public safety’s main goal was to protect the revolution even if effected both sides
Of course this terrible thing sparked numerous debates about the confederate flag being waved at public places. It started even more conversations when it was found out that Roof’s intention was to start a Civil war! Imagine if that actually happened again! This flag is only giving the country more problems that it doesn’t need. The Confederate flag belongs in the past because citizens of America have turned it into a horrible thing that should be
Although any of the treaties passed Parliament, but one that did was called the Olive Branch Petition. When the petition was brought to King George, he was very angered; moreover, the colonists believed that his taxes were unfair. He then declared soon after that all colonists to be traitors and should be put to death posthaste. Tensions had been growing for years between the two countries, but the King’s decision to list all colonists’ traitors angered them so much they decided to create their own kind of government. This scared Britain to the point of attempting
