The thirteenth amendment in the Declaration of Independence ended slavery and the fourteenth Amendment ended slavery in essence. These legislations are set in place however racism is a reoccurring theme in America especially in recent months with President Trump in power. President Trump has a number of motions in place to prohibit individuals from certain races access into America. In situations similar to this it can be difficult for the state to ban racist advertisements when the president holds a huge amount of power. Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning.

Also, a group of extremists was also present in Texas; the group attacked a US Ambassador after making a speech in Dallas just a month before Kennedy 's visit, making him more reluctant to leave Washington.
The South Carolina House voted to remove the confederate Flag from the capital property after hours of debate and emotional speeches for and against taking down the flag. But if there was never the massacre of nine black church members never happened would they still of taken the flag down? A fight over the Confederate flag even popped up in congress when Republicans proposed a allowing the flag in federally ran cemeteries. There is a lot of emotional debate when it comes to the flag. Over all if we did pass a law saying that there shouldn’t be any more Confederate Flags, it’s almost like ghost.

Holly Pryle Emily Chappell English 121 22 March 2018 Kneeling for the Anthem Every American child is raised with the knowledge that they were born in a country that by law gives them freedom of self-expression and the right to protest. However, this right does not mean that people must agree with you and in many cases, groups wind up at odds over differing opinions. Over the past few years America has seen many examples of this, most notably football players protesting injustice by kneeling during the anthem. This form of protest has sparked much controversy and has caused more harm than good. The protesters have divided their fans and disrespected the nation.
Roar of the Crowd On April 27, 2015,There was a protest about the recent death of Freddie Grey who died while in police custody and following other similar incidents all over the country.

The Parkland shooting in Florida. A tragic school shooting in mid-February of 2018 has the whole country spinning circles around more gun control. My opinion and stand point on this subject is to open readers eyes to the fact that it simply will not work. The students pushing for more gun control are starting marches that have affected the schools around the nation in a walkout in March of 2018. This walkout was for the awareness that students don’t feel safe in their hometown schools and also bringing awareness for the seventeen students who lost their lives during the shooting.
The activities of the modern Ku Klux Klan vary from den to den depending on the inclination of its members. Some dens used violence to enforce their ideas while others fought politically against opposing views.

A rather high association with unlawful activity such as hate crimes and domestic terrorism gave people a bad image of the KKK and has lessened the hate between American Caucasians and

When thinking about hate crime the first aspect that would come to mind is violence against an individual or group based on the color of their skin. The most common crimes being between blacks and whites. However, there are many other factors that can subject one to becoming a victim of a hate crime. Most of the prosecutors committing hate crimes feel they are just doing God 's work by mocking the victim for who they are and justify their actions by saying what the victims are doing is wrong according to their God. Hate crimes have occurred dating back to the Nazis and Jews, blacks and whites, Muslims, and still happen to this day to many more.

Not only has the Sons of Liberty taken action, but so has others colonists. Many of my close friends and neighbors have refused to tax in a way to protest the tax. Others have threatened tax collectors or have harshly made them quit their jobs. A few months ago, I, along with many others, decided that we were going to boycott all British products and merchants. In the past few weeks, the protests have really begun to hurt British merchants and businesses.

Former Texas Governor and two-time Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry came out of hiding after suspending his campaign to speak at Value Voter Summit Friday afternoon in Washington, D.C. Speaking as a non-presidential candidate, Perry called on all conservatives to stand by a candidate that wouldn’t divide the party.
