Since the beginning, humans have been held to certain standards regarding morality our rights as humans. History shows us leaders and rulers who, in their reign of power, have misused their power and attacked human’s rights to agency and liberty. By looking at all the wars, violence, criminals, and acts of immorality that humans have accomplished, many assume that humans are not good at fighting for the rights of others. However, in every war, and every act of violence, there is an opposing force. There will always be someone fighting for the good of others, whether it be one person or a whole army, which comes to show that humans are essentially good at fighting for the rights of others.
This suggests that people are only racist because they follow the laws that are in place. This is not true because de facto racial discrimination continues to exist in the United States even after racist laws are removed. The tokenistic fallacy suggests that since some people of color are successful, racism no longer exists. The suggestion that racism is eradicated because a select few are successful is harmful because it ignores all the other people of color that are struggling. The fixed fallacy denies that racism develops in different ways and takes alternate forms at various times.
Tom Robinson was never the evil that society thought he was and has to pay the greatest price for racism, his own life. His image was twisted by society because of his appearance, which causes the real evil in this situation to be the family who accused him and the citizens who sealed his
The historical context behind this photo is the attack from the North Vietnamese army to the South Vietnamese. The South Vietnamese were supported by the United States army. This strike was supposed to end the war between the North and South Vietnam. The technical constraints in this image is that to make a difference in the situation of both countries, something big had to happen so the napalm strike worked as a war ender but it also left children running for their lives burning which is an inhuman thing to do.
The racial stereotyping was an attempt to connect with his new acquaintance. Since racism falls under stereotyping, and stereotyping has its many uses, racism is not inherently bad. In fact, even racial stereotyping can be helpful for situations as meeting an acquaintance and developing
One major effect of European imperialism on Africa was the sudden, dramatic amount of poverty. During the "Scramble for Africa", Europeans drained all resources and money out of Africa, leaving indigenous peoples with nothing. There was also an increase in disease and fighting amongst tribes in Africa, due to Europeans drawing borders that separated some friendly tribes and forced others to live together with their mortal enemies. After WWII, when Europeans abandoned their African colonies, many were able to claim independence. However, since the indigenous people had not been allowed in positions of power while existing in a colony, they had no leadership skills to govern themselves, and many nations fell apart under corrupt rulers.
Frustrated with the abuse they face everyday, people in the region have no choice but to protest. Multinational oil companies (MNCs) and the Nigerian government respond to these protests by public executions, restrictions placed on the rights of the people and various other abuses such as rape, and the killing of innocent civilians. These various forms of human rights violations are performed with the help of Nigerian security forces hired by multinational oil companies. Despite all the countless violations and abuses by the oil companies, the region 's inhabitants are still yet to receive a proper procedure for pressing charges and seeking justice. When the Nigerian government does come up with a plan to combat these issues, the plan usually lacks a proper procedure and cannot be maintained in the long run.
A cause of corruption, discrimination and inequality, the cause of death of many innocent lives. Throughout the long history, racism has been a subject of much debate, most notably in The United states of America. There have been numerous actions that suggest that racial inequality might still be intact with America’s modern society, such as the extreme violence shown by the police that has been roaming all over social media recently. This has eventually led to the creation of the controversial “Black lives matter” group. “Black lives matter” is an organization is an international activist campaign that disapproves of violence towards the African -American community.
This is creating many problems and is going to damage the relationships between races. Separating colored students will make it so there is not as much contact with students of different races thus damaging the relationships between the two. Not everybody wants to see colored people in the segregated dorms though “Tisch junior Kyle Schmidt, who presents as white, said he understands the need for unity of within different races but also said racism will never be abolished unless all cultures are constantly integrating”(NYU News). This puts forward the idea that sometimes the only way to get over the issue is through. So overall segregating people based on race will decrease relations among
For example, police brutality, The events are all over media and the news and has been around since back in the early 60’s. Police brutality is very common now and frankly we the people know when an incident of police brutality is a hate crime or if the person actually did something to deserve the false attacks. “Throughout world history, governments have violated and ignored the human and civil rights of their citizens” (Lugo). The cases of police brutality have made a major negative impact on America and have caused widespread effects on society such as riots. These riots are the outcome of the incidents which have greatly taken a toll on today’s society.
The issue of racial profiling has been called to national attention recently resulting in inefficient policing due to high tensions between law enforcement officials and minority races.

Just because America does not expressly deny the rights of certain subsets of our population does not mean that those subsets are not deprived of those rights, or that they are totally equal citizens. Therein lies a central impetus behind socially conscious speech culture: Whereas discrimination in the rest of the world is usually more obvious, American discrimination is not a clear-cut oppression; rather it is one of subtle
