"Sonnet 30”, a classic poem written by the author William Shakespeare, showing the struggling past of the author. In his poem, he uses the Shakespearian sonnet form (also throughout the other 154 poems) to write his sonnet. In this analysis essay, I will be comparing my poem “Wandering Spring”, to the Shakespearean sonnet 30. I will be interpreting the reasons of me using the elements, figurative and sensory language that I chose for my own written poem. Showing the effect of the elements that I chose, also the effect of using the structure, “Shakespearian form”, how did it effect the poem and the audiences?
In the last chapter, Butler provides various ideals in effort to rid the Chokehold in its entirety. In chapter 8, “Woke: Unlocking the Chokehold” Butler opens the chapter by informing the reader that racial inequality is something that has been around for some time. As far back as I can remember African-Americans, specifically mean have never been treated the same as any other race. There have been attempts to end discrimination, however, none of these attempts warranted any long-term solutions. One instance that Butler believes should have been a major turning point was Barack Obama being elected President.
Barack Obama took center stage on January 20Th 2009 to become one of the most powerful men in the nation. He was our nation’s 44th president, but our first African America president. Winning the election was a huge step for our nation in that has struggled with racism. He gave an honest and accurate inaugural speech by addressing the state that our nation is in, and it isn’t a good one. He used lots of talk about fear, emotion arousing words, and anaphora.
He brought to light issues of segregation and police brutality. King ended his speech by describing to world what his dream was for the black and white citizens of The United States. Martin Luther King Jr began his speech by referencing the Emancipation Proclamation, the document that said that blacks could no longer be enslaved to the whites. But, even though 100 years had passed, the African Americans were still not free. Though they were not physically in chains any longer they were still in the figurative chains of discrimination.
The reasons behind external influences and involvement in the American Civil war directly and indirectly attributed to the outcome and length of the conflict. External tampering would have ultimately increased the death count, the extent of the war, and future diplomacy with the United States. Early on during the war, President Abraham Lincoln made it clear to the world that any aid or alliance with
When we had our first black president in America history, something that people only decades ago would have laughed at the idea of, the world changed. When Obama was elected president, it was a huge turning point in history: "The victory was heralded as the arrival of a “post-racial” America, one in which the nation’s original sin of racial slavery and post-Reconstruction Jim Crow discrimination had finally been absolved by the election of a black man as commander in chief," (Joseph). I only lived when the world changed, because I practically grew up knowing Obama as our president. Obama was inspiring, not only for black Americans, but for all other races as well. Racism was something I never knew about until the third grade and I thought it was absolutely ridiculous that people could hate another person simply for their race.
Civil liberties and rights has had a steady push for expansion dating back almost a hundred years before the marches with the ratification of the fourteenth amendment in 1868 which nationalized the bill of rights to safeguard Americans from both the federal and state governments, which translates to mean citizenship rights cannot be abridged by the states either, however congress largely ignored this amendment (Ginsberg, Benjamin, et al. 98 & A24). By 1939, however, the Supreme Court had ruled taking property from citizens without compensation unjust inside states, in addition to protecting freedom of speech, assembly, and
The effects of 911 attack on twin towers was huge to Americans and the world. The short term effects would be sadness and shocks felt by the Americans and the destruction of the tower. It led to the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. Both of these effects led to the rising hated between Middle east and USA. The terrorist group Al-Qaeda, which claimed the responsibility of the attack on Twin Towers was formed at a meeting gathered by Osama Bin Laden in August 1988 They claimed to protect their own country or kingdom when American forces arrived in Saudi Arabia to prepare for the first gulf war.
This was because Abraham Lincoln knew well the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution and the limits of his authority as a President. In conclusion we could say that although the Emancipation Proclamation did not immediately free a single slave, it become an important turning point in the war because it reached the hearts and wishes of millions of slaves, most of them African American, transforming the character of the war from a war to preserve the nation into a battle for human freedom. Moreover, the proclamation announced the acceptance of black men into the Union army and navy, enabling the liberated to become liberators. So as, by the end of the war, almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors had fought for the Union and freedom. President Abraham Lincoln was a political genius because of the way he was able to exploit the Emancipation Proclamation and the freeing of the slaves to work for the Union in so many differing and crucial ways.
Since the events of 9/11, the US declared itself as fighting a global war against terror and has since developed various policies and laws meant to prevent the recurrence of such attacks on its homeland. Similarly, the US has pursued the perceived terror groups in various countries like Afghanistan to rid the world entirely of the influence of terror organizations. This way, it has been seen as acting as a policeman to the world. Further, efforts by the US to prevent the development of nuclear weapon by other countries such as North Korea have been largely seen by many as the US playing its role of being a policeman of the world. According to the US government, it is important to prevent the proliferation of nuclear and chemical weapon because of their destructive nature and the likelihood of such weapons finding their way into the hands of tyrannical regimes and terror groups which could use them to wage war on the US and the entire world.
