Daniel Webster was very expressive in The Seventh of March Speech. He talked about how America should be a place of peace, liberty, and strength. However, his words certainly did not match up with the fact that he was a bystander of the injustice of slavery. His speech lacked the importance of African American 's circumstances entirely. Although his speech, informed us that his primary concern was that America be strongly united, and secure, built on a good foundation, able to resolve issues, and act as a national family, he doesn 't suggest nor help create a resolution to the issue.
People all have equal rights in our country, but some people discriminate others because of their religion, race, looks, personalities, disabilities, and the list goes on. But luckily, there are people who follow King’s example and don’t judge people like that. I think I live out Martin Luther’s dream by accepting anyone for who they are. People don’t choose how they want to look, or what race they are, it’s how they’re born and no one should be put down by people just because of their
When we finally got our independence the people were scared. They were scared about how things would work. They were scared about how the newly formed government would protect the rights/liberties if its citizens. There were laws and documents that were signed to make sure that everyone one was treated right. For example, the Virginia Statute of Religious Liberty was a law that was basically about how no one could be forced to worship,enforced, restrained, molested, place or ministry whatsoever, or burdened in his body.
In the text “Texas vs Johnson”, on page 82. Justice Brennan says, the way to preserve the flag’s special role is not to punish those who feel differently about [nationhood and national unity]. It is to persuade them that they are wrong. Military people don’t feel strongly about people burn are nations flag because they where the ones you protected our flag. Some people do burn flags but they do it to retire the flag.
Now those people with color that are kneeling during the National Anthem will not get much better treatment because of how you are disrespecting our country. So next time when you kneel, think about how other people are going to feel and how will it make the situation better or
In another article, Judge: man won’t be prosecuted for flag ‘desecration’, I found this quote “Allegheny Township police charged Brubaker with two flag desecration crimes. Maliciously hanging or taking down a flag and mutilating a flag.” I understand that this isn’t against the law, but I also feel the actions from the 2 different men were very wrong. I feel like people should never do this because it is like they are trying to express they hate America and hate being an American. The last reason why the flag should be protected from desecration is because it is a symbol of how amazing of a country the United States really
Why do you stand during the National Anthem, some people stand out of pure respect, other people sit because they are “oppressed”. Colin Kaepernick started a controversial protest during the preseason football game on August 14th. Many people agree that it is for a good cause, but he is not choosing the right time to protest. People believe that standing during the National Anthem is a sign of respect and gratitude for your country, but people like Kaepernick chose this time to sit or kneel to get people to look at the oppression towards minorities in the country. Kaepernick told a reporter, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color.” Then he continued to say “To me,
Many people supported this while others did not like people kneeling at all. One of the people that did not like players kneeling was President Donald Trump. Trump believes that the players should stand up to the National Anthem because it can be seen as disrespectful if people kneel to it.
Secondly, I find Trump to use the flag to distract his supporters from the fact that his administration, which most Republicans campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare, could not carry out their main “promise” to the US. In regards to the football players’ kneelings, I would agree as to why they would not consider the flag as reverent as “patriotic” citizens would. Since the flag is a reminder of a black and white history, black NFL players are more inclined to protest against what they see as unjust. Whites did not really have a big problem against the flag, but blacks have a history that separates them from what the flag represents. My only question is “why now?”.
However, a topic does not need to reach a level of attention for others to understand certain actions are inhuman/wrong. For instance, the recent ending of the former president, Barack Obama 's executive order of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. People throughout the country rallied and defended undocumented people, but this shouldn’t be first time news; the concept of exclusion for personal gain is immoral. There should not have to be a situation in which many people are affected for others to stand up for an issue. However, “Many afflictions have been reassigned from payback for bad choices to unlucky misfortunes,” reasons Pinker for the shift to amoralization.
These are the regulation who 's a punishment imposed for breaking the law would not bring upon oneself from the gods through man’s temper. At the current scene, Creon’s ruling the government banning the tradition of honoring the loss in your family is too extreme which can affect the citizens in Thebes because what if the citizen’s members did make erroneous to the country before death, yet still deserve a respectful burial and honor them and lastly they may disagree with the law
(Q) How could the leaders of the Puritans look at this case and think that their religion or their lifestyle is healthy for the people? Winthrop 's ideology is basically telling the people that no matter what good deeds you do it 'll never be good enough for God. On the other hand this guilt is basically what built America. Why else would the Puritans be working so hard to make a functional city (besides the Queen 's authority and the promise of freedom of religion) they thought that they were the "chosen ones" by God and that the city upon a hill was the promise land. But was it worth all the constant fear and anxiety that they would be burning in a pit of flames?
Hi Simeon, The Bills of Rights was put into place to protect the rights of the people (Patterson, 2013). Without the Bill of Rights there would be much chaos in America. Do you think we are slowly losing our rights? Are not our rights to worship being placed into question? I think that the Bills of Rights was a great move of our forefahers, I don 't think they could foresee the complexity it would soon bring.
The Patriot Act and Civil Liberties Civil liberties and freedoms are a fundamental part of America, and the lives of its citizens. Americans believe that they are born with these rights, and that nobody, not even the government who provides these rights, can take them away. Some people are willing to give up some of these freedoms for safety, but many have grown used to them and will not accept any infringement into their lives. The events of 9/11 are a major contributing factor to relinquishing of some of these rights by citizens for the protection of freedom and of the country. They believe that the government knows how to protect them from terrorists, but their rights will not be violated like those of a terrorist.
If one was not able to talk freely, it would be difficult for individuals with different opinions and thoughts to say or do things to show the way they feel. If freedom of speech was never accepted, other parts of the Constitution may not have been written, because people wouldn’t have been able to talk. There is a current controversy surrounding freedom of religion and Muslims in America. Some stereotypes say that the Muslim religion goes hand in hand with terrorism. Some people also believe that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed in America, but freedom of religion protects that opinion, because it’s one’s right to believe in whatever they would like.
