Elie Wiesel said "combat indifference, intolerance and injustice¨(Biography 2). When Cesar Chavez stood up for what is right just because the Hispanics had different skin color or came from a different place doesn 't mean they should get treated unfairly and the holocaust did bad things to innocent people because they had different faiths. Chavez is standing up for what is right and making a strike how people were put in the camps in the Holocaust what the similarities are between them what the differences are between them conclusively about the holocaust and Chavez. Chavez said "Without a union, the people are always cheated, and they are so innocent,"(found from nrp 1) Cesar liked helping people a lot he thought it was
How would you feel if one day you were told to leave your whole life behind to live in captivity just because people halfway across the world did something wrong? This horror story was all too true for the thousands of Japanese Americans alive during World War II. Almost overnight, thousands of proud Japanese Americans living on the west coast were forced to leave their homes and give up the life they knew. The United States government was not justified in the creation of Japanese internment camps because it stripped law-abiding American citizens of their rights out of unjustified fear.
A hatred for immigrants caused nativism to spread throughout the nation. Immigrants who believed in socialism were deported, without trials and some thought, against the ideas of liberty the U.S. stood for (Doc 9). Some immigrants faced accusations that led to jail and even execution
Since I am a second generation latino american, I instantly understood what was going on in this crime scene. The camera and the lighting are capturing dead body but the many different objects around it. I believe Osorio is trying to show how the media seems to only highlight the crime in latino community but the hardly highlight the culture. Although there is a bloody corpse in the piece, it is surrounded by positive objects such as family photos and
Immigration is deeply rooted in the American culture, yet it is still an issue that has the country divided. Marcelo and Carola Suarez-Orozco, in their essay, “How Immigrants Became ‘Other’” explore the topic of immigration. They argue that Americans view many immigrants as criminals entering America with the hopes of stealing jobs and taking over, but that this viewpoint is not true. They claim that immigrants give up a lot to even have a chance to come into America and will take whatever they can get when they come. The Suarez-Orozco’s support their argument using authority figures to gain credibility as well as exemplification through immigrant stories.
Before and After Columbus Christopher Columbus was known to many Americans as the great explorer. He “discovered” America but as years went on the glorified Columbus was criticized and historians had found error in his ways. Does this mean Columbus was a villain and everything he stands for should be demolished? In this essay we will explore how Columbus Day is honored or observed in the United States of America and how celebrating this holiday opens up sore wounds for American Indians and how he opened the doors for transatlantic slavery, mass murders and cruelty to the Indigenous people of America. This essay will explore the apparent legacy that Columbus is celebrate and honored for, and whether or not all Americans should continue to honor Columbus Day.

Reader Response of Chapter 2 of A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America by Ronald Takaki In the book, A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America, Ronald Takaki gives an anecdote about how the lives of both the Indians and the Irish were dramatically destroyed and how they were even almost extinct because of the violent and corrupted acts of the English. Moreover, the English expansion led to the “making of an English-American identity based on race” (Takaki 26). Furthermore, the Irish were the first people to be considered as savages. The English felt as if the Irish did not have any respectful manners or obedience to God.
The most pressing issues facing Hispanics would have to be deportation of illegal immigrants. Honestly, most of the people that get deported are treated unjustly, because their goal in life was come to the United States and pursue the American dream of living a better life. Just like U.S. Citizens from other races have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, all Hispanics should too. To fix the issue, I would make sure that every Hispanic illegal immigrant in the United States goes through a background check and have their employers write recommendation letters in reference to their work ethics as well as comment of the person’s relationship with his fellow workers.
Not all undocumented Latino immigrants who try to migrate can make it to the United States (Cammisa, 2009). Some of them do not make it because they die due to all the conditions they experience, and only their bodies are found. Also, the undocumented Latino immigrants that get caught by the authorities and are sent to detention centers where they receive first aid, and then are deported back to their homeland countries (United States. Department of Homeland Security. Office of Inspector General. 2011).
Many people claim that an immigrant is just there to steal their jobs and ruin what they have, due to many workers being illegal the way people react to make it seem if was they were put off to have the immigrant work on their place. Such as Donald Trump claims, “ killing ofAmericans at the hands of undocumented criminals.” The Jewish and the immigrants are both put on horrible jobs for their race and for who they are even though they are all humans. The main reason the Jewish and the immigrants work are to be able to have a better life and have as many opportunities as they can achieve.
Delaney Mossbacher, who described himself as a “liberal humanist”, does not seem to be one throughout the novel. With racism boils inside of him, he blames the wrongdoings on the illegal immigrants especially the Mexicans. Kyra Mossbacher also inaccurately accuses the Mexican of burning down the houses and taking the blame for something they probably did not do. Ultimately, racism still exists today and will continue to exist to separate people with different cultural values and backgrounds into different categories in society. Therefore, until racism ceases to exist, people will not be treated equally and will continue to be alienated from
In my opinion, the Japanese were still trying to show that they were Americans. They were complying with people putting them into the internment camps and they burned all of their heritage. Honestly, they were not doing anything un-American, but, because of their race, they were targeted. Arresting someone based on race is not constitutional, but we still see it today.
Ch. 2 The main subject of this chapter is the false idea of prosperity that many Asians believed lay in America before they came over. The author argues in this chapter that people migrating from Asia had a rude awakening when they landed in America and discovered how poorly the minorities were treated.
Not only are the cops and citizens violating the right, but the government is demonstrating such action as well. For example, the controversial topic of the border between the U.S and Mexico. The government discriminates against Hispanics because of the situation and are going against the Declaration by trying to get in their way of their pursuit of happiness. Another example of such action is in Massachusetts. The government has separated a larger groups of people with psychiatric labels and put them into another class and dehumanized them by believing that since they can’t function physically and mentally by themselves, that they be stripped of their inalienable rights.
