However, the series focuses too much on the poverty and crime-ridden neighborhoods and less time on the good neighborhoods. Since Mayor Rahm Emanuel wanted to shut down schools in poor neighborhoods, the opposition agrees that the series must only focus on these neighborhoods. “In 2013, CPS issued a list of 129 schools being considered for closure. Of those 129 schools, Mayor Emanuel closed 54 schools in primarily low-income black and Latino areas in one of the largest mass school closures in history. To protest Emanuel’s action, 7,000 parents, students, and teachers took to the streets in an angry three-day protest.”(Kelly) Teachers that were living in these neighborhoods, such as Roseland, went on strike feuding against Mayor Emanuel, fighting for their schools and it would seemed utmost important to include the majority of this in the documentary.
Missouri campus protests cause university president, chancellor to step down On campus racism leads to protests and resignation of university leaders After week long campus protests at the University of Missouri campus, both the University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe, and the school’s Chancellor, R. Bowen Loftin resigned on Tuesday. The protests included a hunger strike by one of the students. The campus protests at the University of Missouri Columbia campus were brought on by African-American students at Missouri who were protesting that the school was ignoring the fact that students were openly using racial slurs, as well as other problems they faced at the college being ignored or not addressed. Protest Group brings about campus protests A protest group calling itself Concerned Student 1950 has been behind efforts to bring about change to the college. The name of the group references the fact that 1950 was the first year black students were allowed to register at the University of Missouri.
A big issue in college sports is whether or not to pay the athletes that participate in the sporting programs. My side would be with people who think that the players should not get paid. I believe that it would affect their in game performance all together. Even if they did get paid I think most athletes would spend their money on things that would overall get them in trouble. I also think the free scholarship most get is the same as getting paid only they cannot spend their money on what they want.
Fortunately, the mission of the BSU was to create awareness about black culture, in hopes to diminish prejudice not only in the school but also in the community. The mission of the BSU reminded me Of Dr. Cornel West, who has broken many Barriers from attending and graduating from both Harvard and Princeton University, to being a renowned philosopher today. He is not only admired because of his great leadership skills but also his ability to connect with people of all races. Dr. Cornel West was born on June 2, 1953 in Tulsa,
Black history in the Olympics has come to be a very important topic that has not been dealt with in many history classes. The purpose of highlighting the importance of black history throughout the Olympics is to provide a better understanding towards how the American society was improving and transitioning before the end of segregation which happened after 1962. Example athletes such as John Carlos and Jesse Owens stand out and show the world how proud they are to be a part such an outstanding event by the side other hard working competitors.
Why would people just want to get rid of something that is shown everywhere, even in historical Reenactments. Reenactments are there for a reason, to show history. Why get rid of it if it was in history and needs to be shown. Some people say that the confederate flag is a sign of treason in America. This is saying that the people that support the flag want the nation to break apart again.
The reasoning for the objections can include that “they are just amateurs,” and that they “should be grateful to receive a free education.” For the people who say that they are amateurs, college athletics is just as big of a business as professional sports are, but the difference is that all of the money in college sports go to the athletic directors, coaches, commissioners, and NCAA instead of going to the players. Also, they spend roughly forty hours a week playing, practicing, and training for their sport, which is almost as much as a typical job. That means that their Division I sport is technically their job, so shouldn’t they be compensated for it? Regarding the argument that student athletes should be grateful they receive a free education, this “free education” is only free for so many people. Most athletes are not on full scholarship, which means that they do not get their education 100% for free.
In the works Race Prejudice II, Letter to My Nephew, and Between the World and Me, the American authors use their perspectives on racism to show how white people have been destroying black bodies and don't want to know what they are doing. In Race Prejudice II, Hubert Harrison argues that racial prejudice is not innate. He explains that if it were innate, then the white people would not be able to be around the black people. He
Tiananmen Square Massacre 1989 The Tiananmen Square Massacre occurred after countless days of protests, mainly by college students, the Chinese government had become very frustrated when none of their efforts worked and they felt they needed to enforce their martial law. The Chinese government is a perfect example of how and why communism doesn 't work. Although they have changed greatly since the massacre they still have a long way to go in terms of opening up to the rest of the world and accepting the fact that the massacre was due to a fault of their own. The Tiananmen Square protest first began on April 21st of 1989 when 100,000 students gathered in Tiananmen Square. They gathered 6 days after Hu Yaobang’s death, Hu Yaobang was the leader
Since the cost was exorbitant, and financial aid packages didn 't exits, it simply wasn 't a viable option. Additionally all my sibling have done well without a college degree. My parents decision back then, although painful was the correct one. I 've had a successful career and even managed to take a few courses over the years. However, I have always lamented the lack of higher education.
The society will live in today is ignorant. Numerous people believe that racism has been eradicated throughout the corner of our modern world. The American society likes to believe in the purity of their country where racism is a thing of the past and they are setting an example for the world and we use things like interracial marriage and an African-American president to support our claim. It is true that as a society we have come some ways however certain things like racism runs rampant through urban and suburban street alike, causing racial tensions to flare. These tensions could a chance to be seen consistently in the papers through police power viciousness against minorities and the warmed open deliberations looking into immigration control.
