Even thought the Cleveland Indians logo has zero legitimate effect on the game, you shouldn’t go. The best to way to show the Cleveland Indians that there actions upset us, is to never give them a cent of money we make. By not attending the game, we will in no time clear out the ballpark of 30,000 people. Once all of the Cleveland Indians fans see us nit enter the pall park they will follow our lead. Even though it hasn’t worked for the last few decades, it will work soon.
Tongues Untied (Riggs, 1989) is an award winning documentary by Marlon Riggs with the assistance of many other homosexual black men. The documentary put poems together to recreate an image of what it was like to grow up as a homosexual black man during the 80's. Men in the film spoke about the discrimination they had to face on everyday bases. They were called names like faggot, homo, and punk, but if they kept silent about being homosexual they felt like the silence was just as impairing. Some even reveal that they were treated as a threat or invisible.
Sadly after Phoenix’s death the bully was not held accountable for his actions, words, and disgusting behaviour. He even admitted saying it, and students exclaimed he was bragging about it at school. He was never punished, suspended, or had any consequences from his parents and his school. Aceros school announced “He didn't mean it, it was just an offhand comment.” But Halliburton's Highlands referred to their handbook to defend the decision
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.
when the court went too far hale just had to quit and when he returned he said to Goody Proctor “..., I have gone this three month like our Lord into the wilderness. …” (miller, 132). But earlier in the play everyone was just looking for someone to blame. Hale was looking for people to just confess and tell the truth and maybe get a reduced sentence. Hale is of good faith and only wants what is good for people and he thought that trying to help fight witchcraft and get rid of it would help the world.
I’ve already mentioned the Occupy Wall Street movement that lead to many upset working class citizens camping out in protest but there’s much more where that came from. The Black Lives Matter movement is something that just about every American has an opinion on. Whether you agree with the protesters or think they’re being ridiculous; you can’t argue that they haven’t caused an uproar. Just this summer there were plenty of protests and controversy over whether or not the confederate flag should be removed from government buildings. For many the flag is a reminder of slavery but others argue it’s just a way to show southern pride.
He had no weapon, no ally. Atticus stood there with his newspaper with only his words. Oneday Scout was questioning Atticus on why there is so much unpleasant talk about him lately, and then ask if Atticus was going to win the case. He said no and said, “Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win.”(pg101) This is Atticus admitting he will lose this case, he’s openly telling that he will lose because of the Country’s history. But to him that doesn't mean he shouldn't try to defend who he believes is innocent.
Just one year after To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee was published, it was awarded the illustrious Pulitzer Prize as well as several other literary awards. This novel displays the prejudice and discrimination against African American people that was present in the south during the 1930s, which was during the Great Depression. Prejudice is an unfavorable opinion that is formed before actual knowledge or experience, and discrimination is the unfair treatment of others. Discrimination includes but is not limited gender, race, and social status. Some examples of prejudice and discrimination shown in To Kill A Mockingbird are Aunt Alexandra pushing Jean Louise (Scout) to behave “like a lady” would, Boo Radley being prejudged for staying inside
He refused to attend weekly Church meetings because he believed that Rev. Parris was an unsuitable puritan minister. Proctor knew that the puritans were supposed to be abstemious, yet “[Parris] preached nothin’ but golden candlesticks”(page 65). Afterwards, by claiming, “I nailed the roof upon the church, I hung the door,” Proctor proved his piety by implying that building a Church is an honorable deed. Clearly, Proctor managed to show both pride and honor simultaneously, illustrating the distinct characteristics of each in separate events.
Racial Profiling Essay Racial profiling is a longstanding, national problem in the United States of America. Racial profiling occurs everyday, in cities and towns across the country, when law enforcement and private security target people of color and humiliating and often frightening them with searches without evidence of anything related to a crime. This profiling is based on race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion. Citizens in America always assume that when an official is detaining a person of color it is because of discrimination but in another point of view it is the right action. I agree that Racial Profiling is wrong but in some cases it is justifiable .
