The first, and most personal, aspect of his plan involved the murder of his master Thomas Prosser, and Absalom Johnson. Whatever his reasoning was, Gabriel’s plan depicted these two as clear enemies to his goals, forcing them to pay for their crimes. Later, after Governor James Monroe had been captured, the plan called for the death of the Richmond townspeople—not including groups such as the poor whites—until they gave into his demands. Gabriel, by this point in time, called for political, social, and economic equality with white elites, a vision now far beyond just labor rights. Gabriel’s plan was more than an attack on merchants, it was at least an attack on white elites, and possibly those who could at least afford to live somewhat comfortably in the city.
I was protecting myself. I mean, they all run wild shooting their guns, dealing drugs and breaking into cars what was I supposed to do? I assumed he felt threatened by me and so was out to kill me, that’s just an instinct and so I drew my gun. Allow him to kill me? Back down?
In a passage written by, Ryan Wilson, Kaepernick states that his reasoning for his protest is, “ I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color”...”To me this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies on the street and people getting paid leave getting away with murder” Both of these quotes support both the corruption and racism. The fact that police, and other people are getting paid to keep the streets “clean and safe” by murdering groups of people that may...or may not be innocent, without listening or even trying to resolve the issue just because of skin color is a problem. It is more or a personal issue is you cannot do your job without being suspicious of every single person, simply because they are different than you. My second reasoning for this topic is that, even though so much attention is being drawn to Kaepernick, no one is seeing the real problem with all of this.
So if someone doesn't like good we fight them.” said Faruq Khalil Muhammad. This proves that these people are willing to do anything for their religion and that can become very dangerous. Osama Bin Laden was a horrible man in the eyes of most of the world, but served as a role model for some. He was the start of the biggest terrorist group to ever exist and they will do anything to enforce their religion. After he was assassinated, everyone felt a sense of safety and redemption from the 2001 attacks.
Some decisions Johnny made that were influenced by the gang members were killing the Soc, wanting to turn himself in, and saving the children in the burning church. A clear sign of the gangs influence on Johnny was when he decided to prevent the Soc’s from drowning Ponyboy and defending himself instead of letting the Socs beat them up and have them possibly drown Ponyboy. More specifically, after finally fighting back and killing Bob, he says to Ponyboy “‘I killed him’ he said slowly. ‘I killed that boy”’(Hinton 56). Here the author is explaining how shocked Johnny was once he killed the Soc.
but it was ok for the white American’s to murder or sell the slaves two wrongful actions don’t make one side better than the other side in my eyes but that just might opinion since watching this video on Nat Turner. I don’t think Nat Turner a hero or a murder I believe he was just following his beliefs and heart and thought he was doing the right thing to help his people get freed from being slaves to the white American’s or slaves to anyone but it turned out to be a bad thing to do because it made a worse war between him and the other black American’s in the world and made the white American’s be as worse as he was before he was sentenced to be killed for his actions he was able to tell his story of his actions. I can’t say I believe the interpretations from what other’s said what happened and what Nat Turner had did for his the other slaves I think he could of just saved the slaves but not murder the white American’s just because they were selling or killing the slaves but he did what he felt was right and I don’t blame him for following his
Capone’s men were instructed to monitor their targets’ habits and whereabouts, so they rented an apartment opposite from the Moran Headquarters on North Clark Street. Capone’s men were disguised as “police” to start a raid at the headquarters of their rival gang. The men lined the victims up along a wall and shot them all with machine and shotguns without a struggle in broad daylight. Ordinary citizens in Chicago were horrified and blamed Al Capone for this Massacre, which ultimately destroyed his reputation completely. (Source A and F).
