“In that inevitable taking of sides which comes from selection and emphasis in history, I prefer to try to tell the story of the discovery of America from the viewpoint of the Arawaks, of the Constitution from the standpoint of the slaves, of Andrew Jackson as seen by the Cherokees…” (Zinn, A People’s History of the United States, pg. 10). Society as a whole expects historians to be impartial, to report the events of the past as they happened, without incorporating their own thoughts into these events. We choose to believe that they are politically neutral, that they have no bias, and that they report history fairly and that everything occurred the way they say. However, as historian Howard Zinn points out in A People’s History, most historians have succumbed to the disturbing trend of glossing over and sugarcoating some of history’s most horrific events, excusing them as necessary for “progress,” and then moving on.
A scholar by the name of Roger Cunningham creates a strong example of culture. Cunningham stated that a meaningful systematic structure that implies location to the universe. Due to interaction of systems, Appalachia is continuously restructuring. There is a predisposition to protect Appalachian culture in a secure, inflexible way. The social and cultural aspects are able to change and are not simplified to a few distinct directories (Maloney & Obermiller, 2011).
In the letter, Thank You, Donald Trump by America Ferrera, Actress America Ferrera and singer Ricky Martin published scathing, op-ed condemn Trump’s action and rallying Latinos to unite against him. Actress Ferrera said “Mr. Trump, your comments means that you fail to see that immigrants are what have made this nation.” She wants to let trump know that if he truly wants to be president and have illegal-free country, securing America, Trump has to rethink of his outrageous words and apologize to the public, but he only made the case worse by proposing building “the border walls.” Trump repeatedly said that he will build impenetrable walls along the US and Mexico border to keep
Since the presidential candidates have been fighting for the democratic/rebuplican nominee, there’s been a “faveriote” candidate, Donald Trump. Since Donald Trump has announced his running in the race, he has said some things people disagree with. He even has had celebrities threaten to leave the country if he becomes president. So there’s been a campain, and anti-trump can pain. The campaign which now has ultimately failed, since trump’s competors have all dropped out, meaning he automatically gets the republican seat.
Many thinks, the US is a place full of oppertunities, a better life, jobs, innovation, but since, Donald Trump became the president of America , it is become hell for immigrants. The feeling of nationalism have been emerged by the speeches of Trump. In his campaign, Trump, always said about 'America first ' and 'We make America great again ', and always said the immigrants are wiping the jobs of American people. Hates crimes have been increased, since the Indian engineer Srinivas had been allegedly shot dead by a former US navy man, yelling ' get out of my country '. The victory of the President Donald Trump , implies that, a substaintial faction of Americans have an anxiety towards Immigrants, especially Indians, for snatching
A big problem we have right now in the United States are the presidential candidates. A big threat to our country is Donald Trump winning the election. He is just an overall bad guy, he is racist and sexist. He said that if he wins, he will deport immigrants back to where they came from, which is really unthoughtful, especially since his wife is mexican. If Donald Trump wins the election and does all the things he said he would do, then the citizens of United States would definitely rebel against the government.
We just had a recent election and Donald Trump won . Many people wanted Clinton as our president because of all of the harsh things trump were saying . The rumors were that Trump threatened to send people of black descendants back to africa and send people of hispanic descendents back to mexico and build a wall . What the people of america doesn’t know is just because Trump is president doesn’t mean he can just snap his fingers and everything he says will happen. We live in a country where we have a judicial , executive , and legislative branch , they are better known as separation of power.
Donald Trump and his issue with illegal Immigrants. After reading many articles discussing the situation between Donald Trump and the 11 million immigrants in America and trying to understand both sides of this issue, I strongly believe Trump and his insane idea will not be successful. Donald Trump is planning to deport all illegal Immigrants and their children from the United States if he becomes President. He is planning on taking away Birthright citizenship from millions of people who were born in the U.S. from Immigrant parents. How is he planning on doing so?
In the last election it was one of President Trumps main areas of focus. In his speech “Immigration: Let Me Tell You About My Plan” he said, “ Countless Americans (who) have died in recent years would be alive today if not for the open border policies of this Administration.” (Paragraph 19). Immigration is something that people on this side of the topic think causes too many problems in this country and should be stopped for the good of the American
Now the Supreme Court is deciding whether or not it will allow millions of undocumented immigrants to apply for programs that make them eligible for work authorization and benefits through the programs by the President. The President can make executive actions that effect the regulations of the governments issues, when he sees that congress is not taking action and that is what Obama did. The founding father made it difficult to create laws, they know if a person or group of people is given too much power then the government could be more easily manipulated so why do they want to over step an executive order, it that is why it was created
From the onset sets it clear that the aim of his book is not to propose changes to the American constitution but to suggest changes in the way Americans think about their constitution (Dahl, 2003, p. 1). Through the interactions he has had with people and more
Donald wants to build a bigger and greater wall on the border of the U.S and Mexico. If Donald Trump goes through with it, then Mexico is going to have the TrumpLand wall and are going to have to pay. He wants to repeal Obamacare “and replace it with something that benefits everybody.” Donald Trump also wants to “Turn off that spigot” of sending money to China (in the form of debt payments) by taxing them until “they behave properly.” He wants to end President Obama’s executive actions among immigration. He wants to change when somebody is born in the U.S, it automatically makes them a American citizen. Trump wants to work hard and end the Islamic
While reading “History and Knowing Who We Are” by David McCullough, the following points stood out the most to me. Firstly the concept that “The desire to find out what’s not working, fix it, and then maybe get it to work is an American quality and our guiding star,” (“History and Knowing Who We Are” page 2). Most Americans have that “never give up” quality to them, and it has paved the success of many important people in our history. Next that “It is our ability then and now to rise to the occasion and exhibit our strengths - not our failings, weaknesses, and sins - that define us as Americans,” (page 1). We all posses flaws, have regrets, but in a time when we are needed we are able to stand up and exhibit what makes us who we are, what
With the population of illegal immigrants in the United States, averaging eleven million in 2014 and growing, many people have begun calling for a mass deportation program to eliminate all these individuals from the country. An illegal immigrant, also known as an illegal alien, is a foreigner who enters or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorizations, or a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection. Many politicians claim that is it too expensive and almost impossible to expel illegal aliens however, they forget about the historical mass deportation back in 1954. America should lay down the law and start punishing and exporting illegal immigrants back to their homes and let them enter our country the legal
Our current president believes airstrikes are sufficient in the battle against terrorism. While some people disagree with just the airstrikes, more Americans believe sending ground troops will just end in disaster. Donald Trump wants to send in ground troops, he “wants to take away their wealth” (Donald Trump 2015). This opens another debate if Donald Trump is qualified to be president in the first place. Donald Trump has no background in politics, and Americans are frightful of another candidate becoming president that has hand no background in
