The media uses the now mythic symbols of masculinity to enforce their ideologies. What the general public does not know, in relation to the spread of the ideology enforcing toxic standards for masculinity, is the way. People do not know why men are expected to act in a violent way, they just assume that is has always been this way and as such they perpetuate the idea. People do not like to seem stupid, so even if someone does not know why something is the way it is, like why men should be violent, they still believe and understand it as a truth because they assume that is the way it has always been. Men in American culture have been using a system of values with no idea why for far too long.
Malcolm X was similar to King in them both wanting equality. However, X believe that complete separation of the black and white communities would bring about equality for all. In X’s speech, “The Ballot or the Bullet” he encourages people that the black nationalist should take a stand for their own people. He is a bit extreme when he calls out white people and their behaviors towards people outside of their race.
Just as the narrator faced several accusations of betrayal throughout the novel, these accusations were essential in making a difference for the narrator. For example, his rebellion against the Brotherhood caused him to find his true identity one who desires change in society. Similarly, All American Boys taught that the same lesson is still alive today. In the novel, Quinn’s dangerous move to wear the shirt in support of Rashad was clearly a betrayal to his friend, Paul Galluzzo. Nevertheless, his betrayal was motivated by a desire to fight for justice in the world, despite angering his friends.
In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch defends a black man named Tom Robinson who was accused of raping a young white woman. Atticus was maybe not wise to defend Tom because of the consequences that tax his family, but it was the right thing to do. The consequences of defending a black man did cause good things in the children like early maturity, but it also did cause things like traumatization. As Atticus has explained to Scout many times about this, He is doing this because he values equality and justice. He believes that everyone is equal and therefore just because Tom Robinson is black, doesn't mean that he should not defend him.
It wasn’t out of hatred that they were protesting, it was out of fear. The protesters were trying to improve what they thought was a mistake by their country. They were trying to help it, not hinder it. After all their trying, all they got in return was pain and punishment. One of the reasons to back up my claim is
It recommends disobedience and defiance on the part of young people.” This statement is disagreeable because although Huck does break the federal law as a moral, he does it for the right reasons. Therefore, making the great American classic not such a radical and darkly bitter book after all. In her essay,
Such improbable goals not only occurred in the play, but also in history. When looking at Malcolm X’s legacy, it is clear why his attitude towards achieving the American Dream for African Americans was not ideal. He stated that the African Americans are the original people of the Earth, the White people are the devils, Africans are superior to Whites, and that the demise of the White race is imminent. Even though these statements served as a centrifugal force for African Americans initially, his statements were rather disrespectful and suggested violence. Like other violent attempts, this movement also failed as Malcolm X had an improbable goal in his path to help African Americans to achieve their American Dream (Mamiya).
However, some viewed Darwin’s theories as a call for change, and used his racists and sexists remarks to bring forth positive change in society. Thus, Darwin made racists and sexists remarks in his works that were read by many causing some people to either agree with his radical ideas of inequality and others to bring forth a change. In Darwin’s “ The Descent of Man,” he argued many ideas that went against the norm for what people believed in the mid- nineteenth century. Religion was a very important aspect in the European culture and was valued dearly but Darwin came up with a scientific theory that he believed disproved the existence of God. He believed that “the Bible “ gave a ‘ manifestly false history of the world.’” ( Textbook 752).
Malcolm X and Julius Caesar Gaius Julius Caesar and Malcolm X were influential men in their own rights. While they lived millennia apart and in extremely dissimilar societies, their lives have several parallels. Pundits and scholars of history concur that both defined and influenced the respective histories of their time and were loved or loathed in equal measure by those that their lives touched. Malcolm X was an African American Muslim minister and human rights, activist. To his admirers he was a courageous advocate for the rights of blacks, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans; detractors accused him of preaching racism and violence.
He seemed to be telling the truth”(Wiesel 32). So this shows us that this effect him into his problem of what way to choose, but he disbelieved himself and lead someone for his pathway . On the whole, these are two examples of how inhumanity cause disbelievers and the
He gained his power from propaganda, preying on the hopes of the innocent, and a governing system without limitations. Something of this magnitude should never come into effect again, and there should be checks and balances in place to prevent such occurrences. Furthermore, this horrific genocide also portrays the atrocity of racism. Racism is still in dilemma in society today. Although the holocaust was tragic, it can serve as a reason why people need to love, and support each other, rather than hate, and
Martin Luther King Martin Luther King harped on civil disobedience for any moral arguments. Treating citizens differently based on skin color was nefarious, King wished to speak out to change but insisted on non-violent acts to do so. He expressed his thoughts in the “I Have a Dream” speech publically in a passive fashion. This passionate, positive and encouraging speech flourished King’s views and changed the American government’s unjust laws. Although, King did not use destructive force to get his point across, he did break some laws.
He wants the people to notice and realize injustice the law is. However, there is nothing wrong with fighting against something that feels unjust, but fighting sometimes may lead to destruction within the public. The law shouldn’t be based off of just the people’s opinions but also what the government think is best. It’s acceptable to do what is right but many are afraid to stand up to the the government due to the fact that they have more power. Therefore, people may see going against an unjust law as something to avoid because of the aftereffect they will be having to face.
Durbin not only supported such a group, he was was the driving force to in attempting to acquire civil rights for Muslim Americans. In doing such a thing, he was putting his career on the line. It was very likely that he would lose supporters by supporting Muslims, since they are a group that is very discriminated against. He knew this and continued forward in what he was doing. Though he did not get the rights Muslim Americans, he did draw attention to how wrong some public opinions about Muslim Americans are (Shariah).
