Everyone is a part of this systemic profiling. People of color is suffering and being influenced. The struggle of race, color, sex, language, religion, political, or even each social origin and segregation. People of color is discriminated from the rest and the human rights are unfair and also they are suffering from slavery. They do not have the respect and human dignity, so it is a disadvantage. It means the American Dream is not for the people of color. According to the article of Racial Profiling,“Racial profiling affects a wide array of communities of color. More than 240 years of slavery and 90 years of legalized racial segregation have led to systemic profiling of blacks in traffic and pedestrian stops.”(“Racial
There have been plenty of encounters with Native Americans being forced from their land but this is one of the most significant. Native Americans had three options when settlers first came: they could assimilate with the encroaching European population, they could be relocated, or they could genocide. While being relocated there was major death count. To stop the death count from theses relocations Congress attempted to create a separate Homestead Act for the Natives called the Dawes Act but it failed. So instead of helping the Native Americans they decided to turn them into European Natives and change their ways. The Homestead Act may have benefited the Americans it destroyed the Native Americans.
The African American Civil Rights movement existed at large between the early fifties and the late sixties in a society that was constantly on the verge of social destruction. The black rights movement existed politically, socially, and economically everywhere in the United States. As time progressed the movement developed and saw many changes along with schisms separating activists and how they approached getting their rights. In the early fifties there was a large non-violent integration based movement spearheaded by figures such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. However, as the time progressed, the movement started seeing a more aggressive leadership with figures such as Malcolm X, but eventually it turned into an extremist movement
Could you imagine the government coming to your family 's property you have had for years and taking it and making everyone walk a 1000 miles? Well thats is what happened to the Native Americans. They were drove from there property beaten and killed. Then made them walk over a 1000 miles to their new place that was awful. There was no food or water or anything while the government took there land and made fun of them. The government people also raped thousands of the Cherokee women.

It was led by a man name Hitler and he hated the jewish society. So he developed his own clan. They had one mission and it was to destroy all Jews that they possibly could. There were between five and six million Jews killed during the Holocaust. So they did succeed in there one mission they had. So in both the Holocaust and the Trail of Tears there were well over a million people killed in both of these disasters.
During the tumultuous period of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s, the goal for bettering the lives of African-Americans was desired by many. However, the means of attaining that goal, varied greatly among the representatives of the movement. The African-American civil rights efforts were spearheaded by men of peaceful protest for integration, such as Martin Luther King Jr., and in contrast leaders such as Malcolm X who expressed separatist ideals. Other groups of civil rights advocated took an outright violent approach, such as the Black Panthers.
These lyrics from Bruce Woodley’s iconic song ‘I am Australian’ encapsulate the essence of the Australian identity: unity, equality and a fair go for all. However, underneath the surface of our seemingly egalitarian society, the statement ‘we are many’ is the only one that remains. We are a nation divided. Divided by the historic mistreatment of the first inhabitants of our land. Divided by the disadvantage, discrimination and dispossession of Indigenous Australians. Divided by the lack of true equality for all Australians. If we lack this basic equality, how can we say with good conscience that we are an egalitarian society?
The Europeans caused Aboriginals to have health problems because of all the unknown germs, food and cultures that they brought over with them and that we as Canadians are denying people of healthcare because we don’t want to drive all the way to a reserve to help a ill person and that we as Canadians would rather let a person die than try to understand what they are trying to say. In short, we as Canadians are disgusting for letting innocent people who we basically trapped on a little remote piece of land to die of illness because we wont give them the proper healthcare that they need or
The Ngunnawal People have been living within the borders and surrounding mountains of the Australian Capital Territory for over 25,000 years. The way the Indigenous people used the land to live off was extremely efficient and sustainable. They had a bounty of knowledge about the land surrounding them, and over generations, devised resourced management skills to ensure maintenance of the animals and plants, and most importantly, the land in which provided these things. Aboriginal culture existed long before Captain Cook arrived in Australia in 1770. He claimed the land to be "Terra-Nullius", meaning that the land did not belong to any person. This claim obviously seemed ludicrous and crazy to the Indigenous people whom already lived on the land.
Battered Woman Syndrome has provided women who have been abused at the hands of their partners recognition in the criminal justice system and is allowing women to tell their stories.

The Great Land Rush and the making of the Modern world, 1690-1900, written by John C. Weaver, discusses the distribution of land, its changing process, and the introduction of property rights in a market economy throughout various parts of the world – North America, South Africa New Zealand, and Australia among others. This essay will discuss the definition of property right, how it was implemented by the settlers onto new territories and the development there after. Through the analysis of Weavers dissertations, the essay will also draw similarities and difference of the way various colonial government treated indigenous people and other settlers; along with how settlers treated aboriginals and one another.
The English settlers took away Aboriginal peoples sacred land, which caused them to lose meaning to their life and the connection they had with it.
Martin Luther King’s leadership and his beliefs had a powerful impact on the Civil Rights Movement. Their methods of peaceful resistance and civil disobedience to achieve integration, reflected his teachings. These methods later proved to be successful in achieving the goal integration of minorities when the Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964. Demonstrations like the bus boycotts and non-violent marches were just some of the acts the led to this result.
Until 1967 the Australian governments only intention was to wipe out Indigenous Australians and create a white Australian culture. To do this the government changed the protection policy was changed by Paul Hasluck who was the Federal Minster for Terriroties to the Assimilation Policy. (Refference) This policy proposed that “full blood” Indigenous Australians die out through natural causes, while “half blood” be allowed to integrate into the “white” community. Through doing this Indigenous Australians were forced to give up their traditional ways of life and live on the reserves and missions that the government provided if they wanted to retain a degree of freedom. However the
For over 40,000 years Indigenous Australians have enjoyed one of the most stable civilisations in the history of the planet. Through their complex social and spiritual systems they have maintained a historical record of all those has preceded them as well as maintained a harmonious balance between them and the local environment. This all changed once the convict fleet from England arrived, they claimed the land in the name of the crown believing the land was barren. This was based on the consideration that the indigenous population present were not civilised or more accurately what they saw didn’t meet their standard of what is civilised.
