Toner’s three O’s, owing, ordering, and oughting. According to the Barnes Center lesson on Ethical Leadership a leader who possesses this strength shows that they owe others respect and dignity, they understand that they are ordered to do what is right no matter what, they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, and understand that they ought to do what is needed to help others no matter how hard that may be. Churchill knew this and it was never more evident than when gave a speech in 1946 from the U.S denouncing the Soviet’s propaganda of spreading communism. According to History.com, Winston Churchill accused the Soviet Union of being the biggest threat to Christian civilization and for trying to spread communism throughout the world.

Freedom Riders The purpose for the creation of the Freedom Riders was to have a nonviolent protest against racial discrimination. In an attempt to violate segregation laws in the south, the Freedom Riders were a mix of Blacks and Whites who, together, rode in small busses all the way from Washington D.C. to New Orleans. The Riders were hoping to get the movement into the deep south and wanted to start a national movement. Not only did the Riders have to be trained on what to do when violently attacked, they also had to prepare mentally for all the hateful comments and chants that they would receive. The Freedom Riders had a long and cruel journey ahead of them, but they were willing to confront it all if it meant leaving a powerful impact.

People being brutally beaten or killed, riots breaking out, mourning of neighborhoods, lawsuits against police departments all can be at stake of police officers using excessive force. This is part of the reason our country has been in an uproar. In the last few years’ police brutality has been at an all-time high. Because of it, movements have been started and protests have broken out.

I believe that the act and practice of segregation is unconstitutional and also I believe that segregation takes a huge toll on your morals.Segregation was a practice in america several years after the civil war, even though thousands of white and black citizens disagreed with the practice it still continued with all of its horror.
Then it came to a point where peaceful protests became antagonized by the police, and even from other African Americans who did not want white and black people to live peacefully. Men and woman peaceful protesters taken by the police, beaten with clubs,sprayed with hoses, gassed, and some even assassinated. Nevertheless, Martin Luther King Jr and his supporters still believed that their voice could modify this nation, even when people acted wrongly against them. And just like that, the idea of a fair country spread like a wildfire. Soon this country would stand for fairness and
But today, police officers can justify their killing as proper law enforcements. They can explain they also kill white, Asian or Hispanic if there is fierce resistance from criminals or suspects.

That is why people still try to exclude
The revolution itself was seen « an « unprecedented opening for respect for human rights in the country » with, however , many human rights infringements : « Some 300 people died and hundreds were injured by the security forces during mass protests in the weeks prior to 14 January, when President Zine El 'Abidine Ben 'Ali was toppled from power and fled the country. Many peaceful protesters were shot dead by security forces using live ammunition. ». The transition government was considered as a more complicated by Human rights organisations : « political prisoners, including prisoners of conscience, were released; legal restrictions on political parties and NGOs were eased; the Department of State Security (DSS), notorious for torturing detainees with impunity, was dissolved; Tunisia became party to additional international human rights treaties; and a new National Constituent Assembly was elected with a mandate to draft and agree a new
Morality, on the one hand, refers to principles regarding the contrast between conduct, as being right or wrong or being good or bad. Integrity, on the other hand, refers to having the quality of being truthful and honest and possessing firm moral character. Consistency, however, is the quality of achieving a level of performance regarding behavior and qualities . A feature of all three concepts in this context is its underpinnings in leadership. I strongly believe morality and integrity are fundamental and important features of ethical leadership.

African Americans will always get the run down part of the bus and the dirtier water fountain. On the other hand, whites will get a neat side of the bus and the clean water fountain. Also, groups like the Klu Klux Klan were formed and terrorized and sometimes would kill blacks. This is still the same as before the Civil War because African Americans are still not accepted even after they got freedom. Discrimination against blacks continues to be a problem for decades to come, and even today.
The death Eugene Williams, one of the majors point of the Chicago Race Riots of 1919, it was one of the things that actually started to make the majority of African-Americans act. Eugene was hit and killed by a thrown rock by a white male on the breakwater, even after his identity was established he wasn’t arrested.
