The second Red Scare was a time period where government officials were questioned whether they had Communist affiliations. To eradicate the security threats in the government, President Truman issued Executive Order 9835 to search out “infiltration of disloyal persons.” This action caused the investigation of people like Alger Hiss and other suspected Communists. The government along with the citizens set up effective ways, Blacklists, to bar Communists from getting hired for work. In 1950, Red Channels, a book that exposed 151 writers, actors, musicians, and other radio and television entertainers as Communists, was published. This book completely devastated the people on the list and placed these people on Blacklists.
White supremacists were arguing against the removal of the monument. The statue, for them, represents white military and political power. For their opponents, or the individuals arguing for the removal of the monument, the statue signifies the oppression of African Americans under slavery. After much display of aggression, the citizens who were present were involved in physical fighting, which resulted in thirty-four injuries and one death. With this exhibition of violence, the government should not have to think twice about removing the monument.
A multi-faceted group of Chicano student activists emerged during the 1960s and 1970s, spurred on by the United Farm Workers, the Black Civil Rights movement and the struggle against the Vietnam War. There was a growing awakening to the political and social injustices being perpetrated against their community, and this new political and cultural consciousness echoed through all aspects of life, leading to direct activism in all aspects of their communities. Second and third generation Chicano youths who had lived and participated in American society were tired of the limited resources available to them. Although the Supreme Court had ordered to end segregation before this decade, nothing had ended the discrimination that schools practice routinely. As a response, the 1960s and early 1970s were the most active
If he seemed too interested in what the man found, Bigger fears he will be suspected of the murder, so he only goes forward slightly. Also, he feels his lungs aren 't getting any air in because of his nervousness and fearfulness towards being arrested since what the man is looking at is pieces of Mary’s burned bones. Bigger thinks of his lungs as a furnace since they both could not get air in. Bigger felt fearful of being incarcerated and felt as though he could not breathe. The furnace in the Dalton’s home also could not get air in it, but it was because Bigger did not want to clean it in fear of finding Mary’s bones.
Those damaged sidewalks were representing my father, showing off his unstable behavior or so I thought it was. I knew if I denied it’ll get worse, meaning he would get angry at me and would most likely skipped over the pharmacy and go straight to buying his toxic crap. I had to agreed but as I kept agreeing I knew stuff won’t get better. When we finally
The irrational destruction of property angered Hermann Goering, not because he thought it was immoral to the Jews, but because the destroyed shops and homes lost a lot of their value. Goering believed that if the owners were alternatively cleared out, Germans would have been much more interested in purchasing the properties. A meeting was then held on the 12th so Goering could explain the negligence of destroying thousands of Jewish properties. Goering decided to issue three laws on the same day as the meeting. One was to force the Jewish owners of the destroyed properties to immediately repair their buildings and pay the price of the repairs.
Juana says that they have to throw the pearl away or everyone in their community will hate them and they might even hate each other. They decide to keep the money until Coyotito was fully healed just in case anything anything comes up or gets sick again. Juana and Kino start to separate and have different ideas for their futures. This is where the story starts to go backwards. Juana basically just tries to throw the pearl away and Kino doesn 't allow it and has to slit some throats but not Juana’s because they were being attacked.

So this proved that factory life was unhealthy and unsafe for children. And Although a philosophy on Manchester had said,¨I never saw a single instance of corporal chastisement [Beating] inflicting a child.¨But he didn't mention how difficult it was for the children that were working and what was really going on in the factories. Which makes these two argument inaccurate. In conclusion even if the workers were in good health, many people got hurt while working and in the environment in the factories are so unhealthy that in some cases these two reasons can lead to death to anyone who are working in
Without a doubt the Vietnam War changed the American culture. It sparked a huge anti-war protest movement around the country led by students. They question whether American involvement was worth the sacrifices being made by so many. The draft policy made the war more about socioeconomic as it was seemly affecting only minorities and the poor; the wealthy were able to avoid the draft. Thousands of American refused to join the military and burnt the draft cards in protest (Faragher, et.

In my opinion, if you have to ban a certain type of clothing because people are committing crimes with it then obviously your government isn’t doing something right and needs to be replaced immediately. I also read that the police would wait until the Sailors beat up the Chicanos during the Zoot Suit riots to arrest the Chicanos for fighting instead of both the Sailor and the Chicano. This discrimination and brutality against Chicanos from the Los Angeles police has been going on for a while now and it needs to stop. It’s one of the most disturbing and unheard of parts of history. Douglas Monroy was trying to educate the reader about the tough times of being a Chicano in Los Angeles but in reality he’s just trying to show the tough times for Chicanos overall in
Young-Soon Han a former liquor store owner feels very left out of the justice system. She feels upset about how African Americans got their justice, she says “They finally found that justice exists in this society. Then where is the victim’s rights? They got their rights by destroying innocent Korean merchants” (Smith 247). The reason Smith uses Mrs. Young-Soon Han is because she feels that she did not get justice after the riots.
In the article “service and citizenship”, it discusses the state of the military in the late 1950s to the early 1970s. It discusses the Vietnam War and how the war led to the death of many servicemen abroad, resulting to numerous internal controversies. This led most anti draft movement group to agitate against the use of draft to select people into the military. However, a poll was organized to know the number of American citizens who are against the draft. During that time, the democratic Presidential candidate Hubert Humphrey advised the populace to put aside recrimination and disunion but his worlds were not strong enough to convince the aggrieved Americans at that time.
