Smith, 437 Mich. 293 (1991)). Upon, his sentencing the Judge did allow for his juvenile criminal record to be a part of his sentencing report and a factor in the sentencing guidelines for his sentence. Smith’s juvenile criminal records did show that he had six felony offenses as a minor, these felony offenses did heighten the penalty and give Smith above the number of felonies required for an offender to be determined as a habitual offender. As stated above, Smith appealed the conviction and the sentence, where the appeals court did uphold the conviction but did reject the sentencing and order a new sentence hearing for Smith. The State of Michigan then filed an appeal to the Supreme Court of Michigan on the decision of the lower
If you were were alive or born between the times of 1931 through 1950 everything was “Contaminated” the air you breathed, the words you heard, the newspapers, no matter what it was during that time period you could not call America civilized. (supported statement 3) The Scottsboro trials opened a window on a time and place where the social norm weighed so heavily that the principles of law buckled and showed the injustice of America 's court system and America itself. (Conclusion)
The Detroit Race Riot of June-July 1943 always had the question mark as to what the cause was for the riots. It has also been known as the “biggest and bloodiest race riots in the history of the United States” of America. A review that was completed by Welfred Holmes reveals some information from the book with the title: The Detroit Race Riot: A Study in Violence by Robert Shogan, and Tom Craig. The information that came to the fore was that the book explained the build-up to the riots as it occurred at least one year before the event. It was revealed that the morale of the Black people (Negroes as the book calls them) was very low.
The idea of 'justice' in ancient Greece is confusing. In both the trial in The Eumenides and the depiction of the trial in The Penelopiad, the “accused” do not deny the murders they commit. What seems to be more important is the reasoning and justification of the murder. In The Penelopiad, the court is depicted as a familiar 21st century model. The Attorney for the Defense opens the argument, “Was he or was he not justified in the slaughtering, … we do not dispute the slaughters themselves … [of] upwards of a hundred and twenty well-born young men, give or take a dozen (page 175, Penelopiad)”
Racism is one of the hardest things to eradicate in a society. The believe you are superior to someone based on the color of your skin has existed for centuries. It is embedded in the minds of thousands of people. Sometimes we have preconceptions of certain cultures and expect of people from there to have the same habits or responses that we believe is a standard for certain races. Over a thirty-six hour period in Los Angeles, a handful of disparate people's lives intertwine as they deal with the tense race relations that belie life in the city.
Throughout the seventeenth century, conflict between Europeans and Native Americans was rampant and constant. As more and more Europeans migrated to America, violence became increasingly consistent. This seemingly institutionalized pattern of conflict begs a question: Was conflict between Europeans and Native Americans inevitable? Kevin Kenny and Cynthia J. Van Zandt take opposing sides on the issue. Kevin Kenny asserts that William Penn’s vision for cordial relations with local Native Americans was destined for failure due to European colonists’ demands for privately owned land.
It is most likely that these high flow of immigrants face numerous challenges and racial bias. Adapting in a new country is difficult already especially when the cultural differences are big. But even when they do try to integrate, they are criticized for contributing to environmental degradation which is itself a prejudice of saying we don’t want to share our lifestyle and resources with you. Solutions Racism has affected the world for so long. Although I have talked racism concerning specially white and black.
It reviewed many facts about Custer’s life and showed many pictures of Custer himself. Through this article I was able to better understand Custer and what he really wanted to be, but at the same time I learned how confusing he was. The website I received this from is called “about education.” The author of the article is Robert McNamara who is a 19 century history expert. He has worked on many magazines and studied history and journalism at New York University.
Scottsboro Boys PB’s American Experience has impacted the view of racism towards blacks immensely. This event was a very prominent turning point in American history. The Scottsboro boys case has been one of the largest cases involving a black man (men) and a white women in the case of rape. This event has affected how people are judged now including taking age into consideration, not getting the facts correct, and the fact that black’s used to be very unfairly treated just because of the color of their skin. Laws, punishments, and law enforcement have changed very much since the 1930’s.
1943 Race Riots-The Flame That Started the Fire Detroit City, the motor capital of the world, was roaring with jobs in 1943. Black’s from the South migrated North in search of jobs, new homes, and opportunities. In a prominent white area, the migration of blacks was not wanted. Segregation was still present throughout the U.S. Contrary to popular belief, the first largest race riot in Detroit on June 20th, 1943, was started by whites. World War II was underway which created more needs than the average company could produce.
McCullough makes up for the confusion by adding vivid details from diaries, journals, reference works, and a numerous amount of books. McCullough is in no rush to get to the point of the story. He begins by describing King George III as he rides
This book explores the relational forces of the Latino migrant movement and the homeland security state. From 2001-2012, the intensification of deportations towards the Latino community increased from 180,000 to 400,000+ deportations. Although the book frames this period as a time of great state repression and violence, it has been categorized as a time of great resistance, organization, and mobilization and analyzes the 2006 Mega Marches. The author takes a Gramscian approach to illustrate how the struggle for immigrant politics occurs at both the state level and that of civil society. Gonzales expands on the role of immigrant right activists and the ways they have framed their rights claims.
