From Nixon’s Watergate Scandal to Clinton’s Sexual relations with a White House intern, what makes a bad president is all based on perspective. One of three criterions that makes a bad president to me is dishonesty. No one likes to be lied to of course, but when it’s the President of the United States, a man who is supposed to be morally incapable of dishonesty, it goes to a whole new level of a lie. Liars are considered untrustworthy, so how can an untrustworthy man lead the greatest nation to have ever been
The media has portrayed Trump to be a racist, homophobic, sexist, bigot. And Hilary has a corrupt women who would ultimately would be the best of two evils. With no type of qualifications to run our country. Various sexual assault charges, and racial discrimination, Trump was stamped as the poster man for what American doesn 't need to prosper. The media exposing example after example as to why no good can come from him as president and isn 't concerned with change only concerned with power.
The constant stream of rhetoric from the McCain and Palin camp, aimed at manipulating the image of Obama among his white voters by portraying him as an elitist arrogant kid out of touch with average people. They tried through their rhetoric to remind the white voters that this black guy was not like them and looked down on them and how dare he. This play is one of the oldest and most predictable plays in the racist playbook (wise p 75). The radio commentator Rush Limbaugh kept insisting that Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama had been merely an act of racial bonding. Limbaugh was conceived that Powell, the lifelong Republican, had chosen to support Obama simply because of his skin color, not because he was the best candidate.
The Sons of Liberty club sprang up to oppose the tax, so they burned the stamps and drove out all the stamp collectors. The Boston Sons of Liberty, headed by Sam Adams, was one of the most uncontrollable patriots in the country. Townshend Acts: •Named after the Chancellor Charles Townshend became the birth of six new laws. The motivation for these acts was to use the money to pay the salaries of governors and judges so that they would stay loyal to Great Britain. Mainly so that the governors and judges would punish the province of New York for failing to obey the Quartering Act.
Sam Robert’s article, “A Decade of Fear” explains how McCarthyism turned Americans against each other after World War 2. In the first place he lied about communists being in the U.S. senate. As stated in Sam Robert’s article, “News of McCarthy’s accusations against the state dept. of president Harry Truman sent shock waves across the nation.” McCarty’s statements made him look like a gallant anticommunist and gave him power. As a matter of fact, he was considered more of a witch hunter.
Though, it is considered rude for him to ask them about their political views, they don not hesitate to ask him about his thoughts on Obama, and the possibility that he could be the very first black president. Sedaris realizes that his opinion will speak for the rest of America in their eyes, thus when he tries to fight the stereotype and admits he is in fact rooting for Obama, they tell him that the rest of America are too racist to ever elect a black man. (Everyone was an expert and what they all knew was this: Americans are racist. P. 8 out of 10 and “Americans are afraid of anything different” P. 9 out of 10) though, the former is written with heavy sarcasm, the point with that sentence remains the same as the latter. On the other hand, it is not outrageously absurd to have such thoughts on Americans, since the racial segregation ended approximately 60 years ago and lingers subtly in some aspects of their society.
According to David Goldberg 's “All Lives Matter” Disregards Race-Based Inequality," blacks in the United States aren’t supposed to completely belong. They are denied decent employment and education, being animalized, criminalized and killed daily. Goldberg makes a crucial point saying, “Black people have represented the country in the highest of ways while being maligned in the most malicious of ways.” He couldn’t be more right. Blacks are athletic, vocally talented, even superior enough to be president of the United States. Why do we, as whites, feel it is even okay to dehumanize or degrade blacks because of their skin color.
According to his speech, “the Ballot or the Bullet”, he says, “All of us have suffered in this country political oppression at the hands of the white man, economic exploitation at hands of the white man.” This shows why Malcolm X should be leader because X sees that people from different cultures like the Jews, Asians, and the Africans like us today have suffered because we ain’t white. We are isolated, mistreated and separated from applying into Congress, applying for big, big jobs like running for Presidency why?. Cause we aren’t white. Recognizes the struggle of the people is a smart move by Malcolm X because we
End to White Supremacy Racial discrimination and oppression both exists in the United States which limits non-Europeans to not be able to reach their full potential and strive in this horrid country due to the worst doctrine in American history: white supremacy. Throughout all history, non-Europeans have suffered from lack of equal rights and opportunity due to discrimination. White supremacy organizations have been made with the motive of terrorizing non-whites, as well as, caused environments to become hostile for mostly African Americans. Therefore, the ideology of white supremacy ought to be banned from the United States. White Supremacy (noun): the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, especially
Impact of racism in To Kill a Mockingbird In present time, the United States prides itself on ensuring the law equally applies to all citizens of the United States of America. However, the argument that court rulings are unjust, especially among minorities could be made. Justice does definitely not apply equally to the people of America during the era of Jim Crow laws, and preexisting racial prejudice. Tom Robinson, in To Kill a Mockingbird, fights racial prejudice to try and obtain justice. However, Tom Robinson is no match for the iron grasp racism has on the southern United States.
The nation’s mindset revolved around white supremacy, so African Americans were never viewed as human beings, rather, they were viewed as property and white people despised them. White males did not have any respect towards African Americans because they were considered property, so they were put to work as slaves. Once slavery was abolished and president Andrew Johnson heard that congress was planning to grant formerly enslaved people to be viewed as citizens through the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, he immediately vetoed the bill. Johnson was a racist and former slave owner who said, “this is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am president, it shall be a government for white men.” The president was the person that
