City of Maycomb is a cruel and harsh place to live, due to the environment that people are racist and thinks that the white people have more power than the black people.Not getting a full equal right is not fair. During the Tom Robinson’s trial, people only said that he was guilty because he was a black man; while Ewell was white. Many black people has thought that it was unfair to not get equal rights, the white people made something called “separate but equal”. Which is impossible to be. White people thought that giving both of the race a school, but a different school with different supplies and school condition.
And whenever a black person sags or something its a problem but whenever white people sags nobody says nothing. And i just really wish that this would just change because there is too much going on right now and people just don't understand what black people really go through like dss and they always getting called poor and drug dealers but people don't really give black people a chance to prove themselves like some of us try not to do anything but we do it to survive. And sometimes we get tested like if somebody talks about us and expect us to straight up fight but no all black people are like that and whenever a white person tests the and the wrong black person just messes it up for every black person like. I mean black people try to be independent because of the past but nobody understands that but some black people will fight and there are some white people that will fight faster than black people
The final form of prejudice is a tendency to act in a discriminatory way. This involves treating someone as though they are deserving of less rights than another. Throughout the film the African American footballers were deemed ‘less fit’ than those of their white peers. Coach Yoast consoles with the players after they are harshly yelled at by Coach Boone. However, Coach Yoast never does the same for the white teammates, as though they are deemed to be able to handle it
this story “the good soldier” by Colin Powell reminds me of a time, that people are quick to judge other people of their race, background or where they are from. For example, Colin say that people of color was not being treated right by the white people. The reason why they were not being treated right is because this was the time after president Lincoln had freed all the slaves. As they were freed it was hard because it was time for them to get jobs and be educated and this is where racism comes in because people back
Negroes do not like it in any book or play whatsoever, be the book or play ever so sympathetic in its treatment of the basic problems of the race.” If true, how is Huckleberry Finn an exception? There are many accounts and complaints of white students acquiring foul racist behavior within Huckleberry Finn. One is the case of students racially abusing an African American child’s father after they have learned the novel. “...his father says, was verbally and physically abused by his white classmates after they have all read Huckleberry Finn in class.” - Nat Hentoff, Village Voice. To make the situation worse, these cases happen more than often.
Combining all the arguments together, Ellison’s narrative is a personal illustration of the many negative effects discrimination and racism has on the African American youth that may lead to a worse off society, but a stasis of status quo eliminates any chance for change. He establishes discrimination to primarily at fault of adults both White and Black, and, due to the lack of change, it is better off to ignore the suffering. However, he fails to acknowledge the consequences produced from ignoring a problem, and, should tackling discrimination and racism be taken actively, then the issues he had argued previously, such as how discrimination forced Black children into ill-labor, may be dissolved. In the end, nevertheless, the narrative conveys
Which they do, confessed Ian Blodgett, however they have more laws in place like other states to protect the people. Citizens just want to be able to protect themselves and their family if the it is necessary. If someone wanted to own a gun, they would still have to go through a lot of training to own one. Other parts of the country still think that the Southern states are racist. Ian stated, “The racist people do not represent a majority of the South, most Southerners hate those groups too”.
Does society outcast those who defy its norms? Are unique and special individuals tossed aside in favor of rule following drones? By looking at different literature such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Boy Erased, and The Handmaid 's tale it is clear that people are often treated as outcasts when they defy societal norms. In To Kill a Mockingbird Maycomb treats mixed-race children like outcasts because they aren’t one race or the other. In Maycomb, both white people and people of color hold animosity to each other.
The separating of black and white has caused many problems in society and these inequalities are still felt today. Rebellion, revolution, boycotting and even riots, have led to tensions between the two races. Additionally, desegregating schools led to a learning gap between black and white students. The Constitution states that no state can make the law that takes away the rights and privileges of citizens making them immune to it. Desegregation of public places should be allowed because it is inequitable to separate humans based on the color or pigmentation of their skin.
What I got out of this is that the people thought the black teens are more intimidating and violent than white teens. This is just one example of racial profiling however. African Americans experience prejudice while shopping as well. There was another clip of What Would You Do? That we were able to watch in class showing this stereotypical prejudice.
