On the other hand, historians believe that the media is to hold accountable for the Zoot Suit Riots. The media was against the Mexican American community in Los Angeles. For instance, the media was responsible for influencing other non servicemen to attack the young latino men in Los Angeles. Kathleen Campos author of Media and the Zoot Suit Riots, claimed that the media used the strike as an opportunity to discredit Mexican American culture. This article confirm that the media was portraying anti Mexican feelings, tried to bash Mexican Americans by using derogatory names, and made it seem like the strike wasn 't violent.
Unfortunately, the border wall did not help as much like Americans thought it would. Like any other new tryout, it has its benefits and its disadvantages. The border wall was built to prevent drug trafficking, but instead it has made no change in this situation. One example of their disadvantages is that people still tend to cross drugs into the United States without being caught, and this puts people’s lives at risk. When something involves drugs, it involves money, and this makes people want power over everything.
this Mexican war—a war, in my judgement, unnecessary, uncalled for, and wholly unjustifiable; offensive in its inception, and I fear of conquest and subjugation (slavery) in its ending. . . .” (Document 2) This very thing is why many abolitionist, such as, Frederick Douglass. Latter President Ulysses S. Grant was another American in opposition to the war with Mexico.
Even if slaves did not want to move they were forced to move with their masters. This meant that slaves were being forced to move to Mexico. These slaves that were brought into Mexican territory were defiant. In Document D we saw that the slaves that were being brought over to Mexico territory were simply disobeying the laws and were making it harder to control the citizens of Mexico. Not only was slavery making it harder to control the people of Mexico but it was creating
Lastly, they were seen as violent, so if their crime was deemed violent it became an automatic guilty decision for them. It is not that Blacks were biologically inferior to Whites; it was the ideology of racism that made subordination acceptable. Race is a socially constructed term that places groups of people on a spectrum. Those at the top
This topic seems to fit almost perfectly to the novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. Both have to deal with prejudice and racism but “To Kill A Mockingbird” is also about growing up. A theme both also have would be that fear and hatred of another person are caused by not trusting and lack of tolerance. Some examples would be that Tom Robinson wasn 't given a fair trial just because he was a person of color. People just seemed to assume that he actually raped Mayella without any evidence.
The best people have said you have to be the change you want to see in the world. Respecting the Bill of Rights, but protecting the people from others who want to do bad with weapons seems like a hard task, but if the people come together, above all things gun violence will hopefully decrease. Though we can make new laws, and strict laws, again, there will always be bad apples on the tree and when we can accept that and move past it preparing for those bad apples, progress will
Having colored people wrongfully accused of a crime just because of the color of their skin can be dangerous to the preservation and promotion of our country. People may get jumpy and shoot a civilian, because racial bias in media has changed their attitude towards a specific race as said hear by Lisa Wade, “Studies of Americans’ unconscious beliefs shows that most people — white and black — think black people are dangerous and both average folks and police are quicker to shoot black than white people” (Wade). Who can we trusted to uphold the law if our law-enforcers kill people unlawfully, because of the color of their skin? How can we fight united against terrorism, global warming, new diseases and viruses, and everything else if we can’t get over a problem that has been in our lives since before this country even became a nation? We can’t stand unified if we can’t even stand to be next to each other without fearing for the safety of your life.
Such evidence includes “Economic Refugee” which are known as “people fleeing their homeland as a result of economic insecurity” (23). By providing this linguistic framing, it allows the authors to develop their reasons for keeping the use of frames in debate. The reasons provided are built upon the definition the frame evokes, rather than being negative, the definitions of the new frames are positive. Ferguson and Lakoff provide the reason for such linguistic framing in that “refugees are worthy of compassion” (23), and such use will allow a more civilized debate. By providing a more humanitarian approach to debate, as the authors suggest, it will allow for more solutions that do not attack the individual.
Rivalry also began to form against the Americans between Mexico. In Document 6 it states, ¨ in order for the US to succeed they would need to invade Mexico.¨ This led to many deaths in the Mexican culture. A lot of Mexicans had to move away from the danger and the wars that were bound to happen. When the war between Mexico and the US occurred, Mexico lost a lot of land. On the website "ThoughtCo" it says, “ the Mexican lands were considerably harder to attain.¨ This means that when the Americans discovered that Mexico was having trouble taking care of their land it was made easier for them to take it away because they knew that they could benefit from it by selling the land.
