But his career could go nowhere because he was African American, he could not be a general no matter how great his aim was with a rifle. Instead after his discharge, Dick went and became the man servant in a prestigious white family, the Sheppertons in a small town. There he helped drive the around, cut wood, and anything else they needed. In the family, everyone loved him thinking he could do no wrong but outside, he was greeted with harsh treatment from even the most disrespected person in town, Lon Everett, the drunk who “swung viciously, clumsily, at the Negro, smashed him in the face” (p. 103) after crashing into Dick’s car. Lon Everett’s actions were followed by silence from everyone proving that even the most disgusting person in the town had a higher status than an African American in their society.
Boyd’s unwillingness to allow black officers to use the Officer’s Club violated the Army Regulation 210-10 and almost led to violence. White officers never allowed black officers to enter an all-white facility by turning them away every time. Colonel William Boyd was then forced to close the club. The racism that challenged the Tuskegee Airmen all through World War II infiltrated the United States, including the War Department. Unfortunately, the discrimination and prejudices in the country are once again at an all-time high.
You have to make a name for yourself if you ever want to impact the world and change it to your liking. An example of this is Martin Luther King Jr. He was born a black man with no political connections, but he galvanized the black community to help him end slavery once and for all. He has earned a name for himself and will be forever remembered in history. There are a lot of people affected by diseases in the world, and at time some diseases can be fatal.
Are non-conformists rebels or people trying to progress the world? Non-conformists reject mainstream culture to join a counterculture. There are many non-conformists groups like the homosexuals, artists, and Goths who are stereotyped as rebellious or lazy by other people that don't agree with the ideas of their counterculture. However the stories of nonconformists helping society have made it clear that non-conformity is helpful and furthermore enhances society. Non-conformists’ ideas reject mainstream culture, however, those ideas are trying to improve the world or are helping others by accepting them when mainstream society looks down upon them.
To illustrate, a person might avoid black people but then the person they have avoided all this time turns out to be a nice and genuine person so you just missed out on making a good new friend. Next, stereotypes limit people; people can do so much more than what stereotypes are saying. For instance, the stereotype that black people need to stick to sports and not do anything else. Therefore a black person might just listen to what society says and stick to sports even if that is not what they want to do. That person could
Law abiding gay and lesbian citizens have a disadvantage from other people, not because they are breaking laws or doing anything wrong but because unaffected parties don’t accept their sexual orientation and cause problems. The right to marry is just one of
It is hard to separate the cases between instrumental aggression and bias motivation. I think not every bias motivation reflected as hate crime or breach the hate speech law. In some time you have the ability to like some one or not, so hate crime law could make many problems **** instigate retaliatory attacks. In conclusion, society would be better with more control and more law to live in an organized and pleasant community of humanity. Hate speech law does not prevent of exercising the freedom of speech but it has been found for reduce using freedom of speech and minimize making problems to other or causing harm to them.
Those who are attentive in the study of multiculturalism have even defined counselors negatively in the sense of treatment by calling them impervious to the beliefs and values of their culturally distinctive clients.

Emmett’s murder was not the most violent or the only one, but it did begin the civil rights movement in the South. The newspaper article containing quotes from Emmett’s killers admitting their guilt and pictures from the open casket funeral outraged African Americans in the South. In an interview with Pbs Emmett’s mother says, “When people saw what happened to my son men stood up who had never stood up before.” Emmett became a symbol of the civil rights movement in the South. His death was the motivation many people needed to stand up and fight for equal rights. “100 days after Emmett’s death, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man.” Rosa Parks remember Emmett’s death on the day she refused to give up her seat and when she thought of him she could not live another day just going along and not fighting to be given the rights that were hers.
Stereotype is a funny thing to talk about because it’s easy to make a joke out of it. But when the stereotype is true, it’s really hard to deny the fact that the stereotype is not true and most people, including Asians, think that all stereotype is true. Stereotypes work like a labeling to a specific ethnic groups or person and to be honest, labeling people is not good so in my opinion, I think that we shouldn’t use certain stereotypes to describe a person. Otherwise, it doesn’t affect us
