When the justice for Mr King was not given rightfully, the people from the streets who went through alike problems hear about it, they immediately want change. From gang members who initiated the truce that helped decrease street violence, to the average high school student being active in protest around the city, the riots were portrayed heavily by the people affected by the beating. At these times, around the clock news and live television coverage followed but also in Ice Cube’s “The Predator” and Rodney King 's speech to the city of Los Angeles. Rodney King, intoxicated, speeding down the interstate had ignored all police sirens and warnings. He led the California Highway Patrol on a eight mile chase down freeways and city streets.
Loffreda quotes Walt Bolden, a friend of Matt, who refused to lose a friend in vein and called upon legislature’s to consider the threat that now seemed so apparent: “Boulden [...] legislature’s failure to pass a hate crimes bill: he told reporters that “they said nothing like that happens in Wyoming because someone is gay, but we’ve always known someone would have to get killed or beaten before they finally listened. I just can’t believe it happened to someone I care about.’” (371) The problem with society isn’t the overwhelming number of loathe toward one another, but the lack of consideration and empathy. Loffreda’s essay not only draws awareness to the LGBT community, but also emphasizes the amount of support they are gaining. Everdeen Mason, author of “The dramatic rise in state efforts to limit LGBT rights,” draws to light that although the LGBT community have gained support they are still facing discrimination, “ While the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community has become more visible [...] state lawmakers have increased attempts to pass legislation that could restrict civil rights for LGBT people. Since 2013, legislatures have introduced 254 bills, 20 of which became law.” From same-sex marriage to the bathroom bill the LGBT community fought, and continue to fight, to achieve equality.
For starters, the label of being gay, changes how he acts. In an understatement “Dear Lord, please make Patty Marks dump me, I do care if she hates me forever. But please help. Amen” (53). Clearly, Crabb never wanted a girlfriend.
2018 David Morrow analyzes the 1919 World Series Scandal as a detriment to basketball as a whole.

The can be seen as interpreted to be seeing as they don’t know what they were doing.
History Fair Topic Thesis staement: Until the 1960s Americans of the LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual and other) community were discriminated against and had limited rights. On June 28th, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, A popular gay bar in New York City (Greenwich Village), members of the LGBT+ community was harassed by policemen that night. Outraged civilians rioted until the early morning and had violent protest and demonstrations that lasted 6 days, the Stonewall Riots became a major turning point for gay rights in the United
Thane Rosenbaum, in his “Should Neo-Nazis Be Allowed Free Speech?” essay, used the Supreme courts justifying the right of a church group opposing gays serving in the military to picket the funeral of a dead marine with signs that read, “God Hates Fags” as well as neo-Nazis marching in a holocaust survivors’ town as an opportunity to oppose on justifying hate speeches with offensive intentions. Even though it was a strong topic, by missing an ethos appeal and stressing pathos appeal, Rosenbaum failed to make an effective and convincing argument. Rosenbaum did not share that his parents survived the holocaust, and that he is heavily involved in opposing the Nazi regime. He is a law professor in the U.S., and he was also visiting professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in Israel, where he has been a frequent speaker, including at the annual Yom HaShoah Lecture hosted jointly by the American Society for Yad Vashem and Cardozo 's Program in Holocaust & Human Rights Studies on “Remember How the Law Went Horribly Wrong”; the 60th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials on "A Reappraisal and Their Legacy"; and as the Uri & Caroline Bauer Distinguished Lecturer on Rosenbaum 's book, “The Myth of Moral Justice." Although he has credibility as a writer of the essay, he did not mention that he is professor heavily involved in the issue.
Around this same time, Le Guin witnessed, and responded in her own way to, violence between law enforcement and homosexuals through the Stonewall Riots. These riots were a series of violent outbursts and protests that took place over the course of six days in 1969 in New York City. This violence sparked a lot of conversation where people disagreed on whether or not discrimination was destructive. The Stonewall Riots became known as the catalyst for the gay rights movement. When writing “Those Who Walk Away From Omelas”, Le Guin decided to respond to the riots by asking questions and including thought provoking statements such as; “Happiness is based on a just discrimination of what is necessary, what is neither necessary nor destructive, and what is destructive” (Le Guin).
In 1969, when it was illegal to solicit homosexual relations, gay bars were places LGBT people could go to socialize in safety from harassment. These bars were often subject to police harassment. On the night of the riots, nine police officers arrested employees of the bar for selling liquor without a license, and arrested anyone who wasn’t wearing at least three articles of non-gender conforming clothing. Rather than scattering like people did most of the time, patrons began to throw bottles. The riots continued for five nights and they are considered the first time LGBTQ+ people began to stand together and demand rights.
However, the teacher was still not satisfied, saying all is vanity, "a chasing after the wind, there is nothing to be gained under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 4.9). Self-interest can lead to self-destruction especially when it is hurting others. Living in a capitalistic society this is something often seen and sadly many are immune to the pain they cause others, for example in September of 2011 the GOP presidential debate, CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer presented a hypothetical question about whether an uninsured 30-year-old working man in a coma should be treated. Congressman Ron Paul responded with “what he should do is whatever he wants to do and assume responsibility for himself, that 's what freedom is about. The follow up question was “are you saying that society should just let him die?” To which the crowd shouted
Presidential candidates have different beliefs and values however the most basic form of respect did not occur during the campaign, just like in the movie “Freedom Writers” the most basic form of respect was not shown. Each party, the democrats and republicans, did not use their parties values to help unite the country. No matter what one believes, and before he has even been in office, there are many that are angry and have been rioting based on judgement about Donald Trump. This can be compared to the movie where the students judged each other simply on race and not having a true understanding of who they are and their situation. Judging others based on fear, race or religion is a significant issue that needs to be solved so that our county’s future has more peace than hate.
One such organization that is well known amongst the youth today is the Gay-Straight Alliance. Public opinions are mostly seen through riots and protest. One such riot to convey public opinion was the Stonewall Riots. This riot led to influencing the court’s decision regarding gay rights. The Stonewall Riots took place after the New York Police raided a gay club, causing a disturbance among the community.
Deadliest shooting occurs at a gay night club in Orlando, critics say it is worse than 9/11. On the night of June 12, 2016, gunman Omar Mateen traveled to the Pulse gay night club with a pistol and assault rifle around 2 a.m. Sunday and started shooting. During the attack, Mateen calls 911 and begins to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. Many people would call this a hate crime but it is deeper and higher than a hate crime when you intentionally took not one person but dozens of lives. Rumor has it, that he had much more going on in life, but when he saw two men kissing it set it him off.
In the Article Dumbest Anchormen While reading this article the main focus was to show you how the movie Anchorman and real life new anchors can be one in the same. Ron Burgundy plays a chauvinistic anchor who doesn 't believe a female can hold a spot in the news nor does his counterparts. What Jonah Goldberg 's article was trying to show was the media back in the 2012 election were biased against Obama 's campaign. They never fact checked their sources, and accused him of stealing from Medicare to put back in Obamacare just put it out for everyone to see not knowing if it was correct. Senator minority leader Mitch McConnell’s, “Barack Obama has been running from the nation 's problems.
only ever seen white gay men do “like that is such a white twink (tern for skinny young men) thing to do like it is the dumbest thing to write on Grindr” as one entry reported. Others merely saw it as a cruel way to label someone they hardly know as another reported “it is mean plain and simple to write masc for masc is disregarding all these men that could be the one”. They all reported that dating should be about compatibility and although they at some point felt victimized by such words, they stated that they just avoid those kind of men to begin with. As one stated “I do not have to prove my manliness to these men if anything they should prove their worthiness to me if they want to be so specific”. “Masc for masc” is a signal to gay men
