Soon after the integration began, Race Riots began. Parents were attacking children of the opposite race, and parents were attacking parents because of their race. The integration, strike schools, and race riots go to show that the way that segregation was ended may have not been the best way to do it, but it was a start for the process. Through this, the people involved were able to make things work for them and find the best way to educate their children during this tough
The idea of them being an unfit race who was in need of probation and instruction seemed to more closely relate to white Klansmen of the South. Their actions spoke louder than words and it seemed as though they were begging to be put in their place. African Americans were not to be punished, if anything it was the white men. They enslaved African Americans, beat, and battered them for years yet when they finally get their freedom it’s as though life will never continue to flourish. The South proved that they needed probation that was never forced upon them.
After reading Miguel and Valencia’s “From the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo to Hopwood,” I was shocked to find how Mexican Americans were treated in American students. I was expect poor treatment from our discussions in class as well as other readings, but after reading what the authors reported, including schools failing to address learning issues and pushing kids instead into economic mobility, I am deeply troubled I was not made aware of this sooner. Along with segregation on race basis, I would argue the struggles of Mexican American students was the greatest struggle for education equality in the 20th century, though the struggles gone through by other minorities surely should be discounted or overlooked. I found the role of religious institutions
Remembering the Titans Segregation was strong in the United States until 1964, but people were still not open minded to sharing with colored people. Ten years had passed and the hatred citizens of different race had towards each other were still as strong as before. The story of the local T.C. Williams High School was a prime example of hatred towards another race, the school was divided into two. The best all time greatest movie would have to be “Remembering the Titans” because it’s inspirational, talks about football & real life, and it 's based on a true story.
According to Wise,“For people of color, calling out the police for help was a dicey proposition, mostly because they could never know whether help is what they’d receive as opposed to brutality and mistreatment” (Wise 141). According to another author from Business NH Magazine, Brenda Lett, she states “We are held back, and hold ourselves back, by deciding not to work collectively to address the lie of superiority and inferiority based on skin color.” (Mowry 61). Students race matters. If people did not notice about their race, is like pretending not to see the consequences for this students. They knew that they are “the other” before they were called “the other”.
Have you ever wanted to participate in a sport, but you failed at a tryout? This paper talks about why we should no longer have tryouts for kid’s sports. This is a complicated issue because there are many sides to it, for example, some people may think that it tryouts teach kids to fail. This argument is misleading because if kids fail at a tryout, they may think that they are useless in the sport and they may give up sports altogether. The actual question to be decided is, should there be tryouts and why.
courses in college that have opened up my mind to the issue. The more information I learn about this issue, the more surprised I am that our society still exhibits bias, because as much as the United States preaches about equality, it appears as if society has segregation in minor ways. Although the debate between whether there are biased questions on the SATs or not seems to favor that there aren’t by popular opinions, there is still biased behavior occurring in school systems that prevent certain groups of students from getting the proper resources needed. Because I would like to work in an low-income area, which most likely would contain minorities, as a teacher I would make the effort to help those students get the sufficient help needed. This motivates me to become a part of the education field, because caring teachers are much needed in area like this.
Although segregation has been eliminated, discrimination is still prevalent in the United States. Lack of proper education and representation of people of color (POC) has bred hate and stereotypes in white people for generations. Both the problem and the solution lie within our country’s school system. Our classrooms cannot only provide the resources necessary for change, but also the influence to alter the youth’s perception of other cultures. Introducing more diverse, culturally and historically accurate classes will help minimize racial discrimination by providing a legitimate representation of POC.
Implementing policy changes within the educational system can help, but how does that affect the community as a whole. Racial tension will always be a very serious issue unless people come together despite their racial differences and come up with solutions that will not only relieve some of the inconsistencies and pressure but help the next generation to see themselves in a different
The system of class differences should be changed because it is only hurting people, and that everyone could benefit from the change. More people could receive a good education and be raised in a good, stable home environment and much more. In Lareau, she brings up how White and African American middle-class children were starting to think of themselves as entitled to more things than other like opportunities and attention (Lareau, 352). It is not wrong for families to provide the best they can for their families, but it does not make them better than others, and deserving of more opportunities. I believe that if people keep believing in their entitlement then there will not be a big change in class difference, because they will feel as if something is being taken away from them.
