This resulted in the 4 students protesting and sitting at the lunch counter until they were served which turned out to be a little over 5 months. Once other people found out about this many other african americans and even some whites joined. Eventually they had to serve them because it was slowing down their business and they were losing a huge amount of money. The african americans were able to get served and broke some of the segregation laws in other restaurants, stores, etc. Although they ended up getting what they wanted there were some problems that they faced.
The nonviolence worked because people were willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good. “But whether or not we succeeded in obtaining these conveniences, every one of us was firm in his resolution of passing his term in jail in perfect happiness and peace.” (Document C, Gandhi). Gandhi’s followers knew the price they would have to pay for their civil disobedience, and they all accepted it. Their unwavering loyalty kept their movement alive.
Johnson & Johnson’s effective communication between them and their publics kept the criticism following the crisis against Tylenol to a minimum, and kept everyone involved informed on what was going on both inside and out of the company to insure that there would not be a repeat. The company’s leadership successfully took control of the situation from the beginning by making public safety the number one concern of the company. However, even though Johnson & Johnson 's leadership did excellently during the crisis there were areas Tylenol improved upon after the crisis, that would have made things easier in the beginning. Johnson & Johnson did not have a proactive public affairs program before the crisis, the company’s only media relations was in the advertising and marketing area. Johnson & Johnson 's failure to establish a positive relationship with the media forced the company to respond to the crisis in an advertising-like manner, that resulted in the company receiving criticism from the media for not being genuine due to the slick sales-like response ads that where run during the crisis.
King’s perspective on segregation was that he was against it because he lived through it and he saw what it did to people and. He was a strong believer in non-violent protests. Boycotts, protests and marches were eventually effective, and much legislation was passed against racial discrimination. This letter has impacted people all around the world years later.
Their appearances fit the description of a “hippie” in that decade. Their appearances caused them to be judged and stereotyped in several of the locations where they stop, especially the small restaurant in Louisiana. When they enter the restaurant, they are faced with many looks and remarks, including an older white man saying, “I think we oughta put them in a cage and charge admission to see them…Look like a bunch of refugees from a gorilla love inn.” As if this was not enough judgement, the waitress at the restaurant refused to serve them, which results in Billy, Wyatt, and their companion George leaving. Later that night, the three men are beat by a group of people that appear to be the same men from the restaurant earlier that day.
What Tenzin mean when he says this communication with others is how we avoid conflict. If people talk about problems before they get uncontrollable unnecessary conflict won’t occur. When people listen to other people’s opinions it can form relationships that are stable and peaceful. Someone that agrees with this concept is Portuguese politician José Manuel Barroso. He once stated, “There is no stability without solidarity and no solidarity without stability.”
Dr. Kings faith encouraged his peaceful approach to changing the world we live in. His use of peaceful protests proved useful not only in achieving his goals but also in gaining a following. Martin Luther King Jr had many leadership qualities, he was very patient, recognizing that change wouldn 't happen overnight, he wasn 't afraid to ask for what he wanted in a confident but calm manner, recognizing that violence was only a temporary solution, he was quick to inspire and encourage others, and he was utterly devoted to his cause, going as far as to give his life for it in the end. In his speeches, he would commonly inspire others with his promises of a brighter future and references to his faith, well repeatedly affirming that he intended for the changes he spoke of to go threw, reassuring his listeners that the African-Americans of America would not waver in their goal, no matter how long it
As an unabashed campaigner for reform, and the courageous voice for those oppressed by authorities, free speech wilfully bore the assaults from those in power who wished to silence him. But in the face of adversity he thrived, and consequently, so did humanity. He was the mentor of history’s most impactful activists, giving them the artillery to convey their ideas and tackle injustice in its most violent forms. He sat alongside Rosa Parks on the bus when she famously spoke up against racial segregation, refusing to give up her seat for a white man.
They sat in the incorrect area because only whites could sit there. Colored people were only allowed to sit in the back of the diner. I was their waitress, and I was a bit nervous; with it being my first day. I ignored them a few times, while thinking
Segregation was still apart of US custom, black people were still denied seating with white guests at diners and public restaurants. Four students from Greensboro, North Carolina decided to have stay seated in their seats and in turn sparked a revolution of "sit-ins" all around the country. News spread of another bold defiance from white supremacy and support came running in, even support from white allies who decided no longer to be just witnesses to this oppression. A newer younger civil rights movement was birthed from these young men, but with this movement, there also came pressures against them from within the black community. From the black older cook who reprimanded the boys for seating, blaming their defiance for the employment troubles facing black workers, to the older black figures who opposed the students actions for sometimes altruistic, sometimes selfish reasons.
Peaceful resistance to laws positively impact a free society. In the case of the Civil Rights Movement, peaceful resistance led to desegregation. Civil disobedience aided in the decision of Brown v. Topeka which overturned the “separate but equal” decision of Plessy v. Ferguson. Plessy disobeyed a Louisiana law by not sitting in a Jim Crow car. This civil disobedience led to the Supreme Court decision.
