In the 1960’s Julia brought back color to television after “Amos ‘n’ Andy” when off the air during the 50’s. Julia became a larger success then NBC expected to, even with its success was a lot of negativity towards h program. This result was largely due to “extraordinary out of touch with and silence on the realities of African American life in the late 1960s...large number of blacks lived in exploding ghettos, Julia lived a luxury lifestyle”. Julia had a chance to present the reality of the lives of African Americans during this time but instead made Julia’s life showed the life of a white character. This resulted in a large struggle for both the black and white audience to relate to the main character.
In fact, “By 2001, nearly 2.8 million girls participated in athletics, representing 41.5 percent of varsity athletes in American high schools—more than an 847 percent increase from 1971” (Women’s Sports Foundation). An 847 percent increase is difficult to even comprehend. This means that the final amount has increased by a little more than nine times the original amount. To see that much of a difference from 295,000 women participants prior to Title IX is amazing progress toward the end goal of creating equality between the two sexes. There will always be those who question how much of Title IX is actually responsible for these changes.
During the early 60s and 50s America was an unforgiving place for people with colored skin or different racial backgrounds than white people would be separated and discriminated because they were different.With the help of people of Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights activists, they were able to outlaw and diminish segregation with peaceful protest and speeches.Segregation was a horrible because all it was is just people hating other people just because the way they look or racial backgrounds. In the early 60s and 50s segregation was a huge thing back then and many different activities and a lot of different things were designated for different races.For example,Montgomery,Alabama,when a bus became full, the seats nearer to the front were given to white people (Source A).White people were more privileged than any other race.This shows that some people can be so rude just because someone has a different way a life than themselves.In addition a person named Homer Plessy purchased a ticket for a train in
His fighting shows a lot of the political turmoil that was happening at the time and the views that African Americans have towards their progress. Much like Cornelia, Robert’s parents were a mix of African American and White. The differences is that Robert’s mother was white. Murray explains that “racial identification was ultimately a matter of appearance (66).” This showed that despite their white blood, Thomas and Robert were still treated as many other African Americans were treated. Sarah Ann often told her children to be careful of how they identified themselves because of the social implications of identity.
In today’s society, a person may not know but will tend to discriminate against someone who may seem different due to their skin color. This country has been living in a nation that has suffered years of abuse and racial segregation. The Charleston church shooting is the fundamental case in quite a while in which blacks genuinely were secured by a white individual as an ensuing consequence of their race. The Charleston strike was a loathsome, sickening wrongdoing. White-on-black crime is amazingly striking all over the place in America, close liberal inventive purposes of imprisonment.
These laws convinced people that mixed babies would destroy the nation. The Jim Crow Laws help lead our country to the Civil Rights Movement by causing disharmony within the United States. Our country was divided and only the white Americans were satisfied. The laws caused a large amount of problems for African Americans living in the cities. Many of them couldn't find jobs and had trouble supporting their families.
These groups of student are fighting and protesting for their rights for an education. And being able, so the government could give them the same rights as a US Citizen.By reading chapter one, My thoughts towards this reading was interesting, how many women were treated throughout the Gilded Age. I believe that it was unfairly that women did not had the right to pursue an education of their own. This is why education was an a big role throughout the Gilded
Also, if a White History Month was created that would be considered unlawfully wrong to society. Some white people feel like they struggle as far as race mistreatment due to the color of their skin. Books have even been written and published addressing this issue such as “Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream” and “Its Past Time to acknowledge black privilege”. In a 2011 survey whites said they suffer from radical discrimination more than blacks. One thing that stood out the most to me was when a white commentator described our modern day society as “White is becoming the new black” because many people want to pass as black and that’s when they began to discuss Rachel Dolezal.
Only twenty-one percent of millennials are married while forty-two percent of baby boomers were married at the same age, almost one out of every four millennials have a bachelor degree or higher making them the most educated generation ever seen. Millennials also take the cake in the most racially diverse generation ever seen as well, with nineteen percent of them being Hispanic heritage, fifteen percent being African American and four percent being Asian. It 's gets even more diverse for this new generation, majority of millennials are sick of their baby boomer parents style of suburbia living and are attracted to cities that can fit their quick attention spans.

The population is projected to peak in 2036 for this diverse millennial generation, with 81.1 million.
White americans make up the majority of the US, however, HIV rates are still highest amongst blacks. In African American communities, there is a lack of HIV prevention methods due in large part to unfair socioeconomic factors, conspiracy theories, lack of healthcare priority, and lack of government intervention. The
The repercussions of institutionalized prejudice are far too great for any group to overcome. Jim Crow laws repressed many black americans in the 1850s and the repercussions of that are still affecting black society today. Similarly in the 1800s woman were legally restricted from many of the things men were and still are still unfairly treated to in society
The black people of America were subjected to segregation and seen as the lower class, could not have mixed marriages, or even carry a gun. Many Southern states created laws to prevent blacks from voting and traveling. Jim Crow`s Laws were simply unjust. It is also important to point out that there was corruption during that time period that slowed down the positive growth of the society. MARK ZEES Thank you for the wonderful read.
The Vietnam War drastically changed how Americans viewed their country. The US emerged from World War II as a world superpower and as a country where patriotism meant serving one’s country and following authority’s orders. However, in the 1960s, the discontent of many minority groups who believed that the “American Dream” was only obtainable by a select few, led to many social changes in the US. This discontent also fueled the many individuals who questioned what the US was doing fighting communism on the other side of the world. The Vietnam War divided American society at home on their views on national pride, police protection and justice, and trust in the US government, and also changed Americans view of their countries nobility.
The reality of stereotype coming from Americans, in the perspectives of the two authors, becomes more and more popular in society in general, and in America in particular. By describing the community’s thoughts, recounting their own experience, and offering solutions to the discrimination, Staples and Cofer agree with each other on how cognitive abilities among the nation should be changed. While people all use stereotypes, all the time, without noticing it, so many people feel incompatible to live in a discriminative culture. Therefore, “Black Men And The Public Space” and “The Myth of Latina Women” are written in order to fight against the belief of categorizing a certain group of people, and to encourage individuals from ethnic groups to
The Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucrietia Mott, discusses injustices towards woman and the rights that have been withheld from them, such as voting and denied admittance into colleges. Stanton and Mott want readers, primarily men, to understand, to take action, and to fight against the opression that has been put on women of all ages, race and religion in the United States. Without the help of Stanton and Mott, womens rights may have been an overlooked issue yesterday and today, therefore, their message is incontestably crucial. To Stanton and Mott, women were created equal to men, and to further their declaration of this equality, they state that the rights that have been unfairly
