Reconstruction in 1865 through 1877 was terminated by Southern men due to their lack of acceptance of African Americans in restricting their political rights, not following the North’s precedence of equality, and the assassination of many a men by their ever so popular Klan. Reformation began after the Civil War which was fought over sectional differences and heavy slavery in the South. Southerns had always been pro slavery which contributed to their low treatment of African Americans as a whole. Once the South lost the War they could no longer legally enslave African Americans, but that did not change their persona in the eyes of the rich white men. Equality was a concept for white men according to the South, especially considering that

The Civil War left traumatized people and many destroyed cities, which led to the Reconstruction. The Reconstruction was the process of trying to rebuild the South after the Civil War. The North and South had an interesting past in the year of 1876. The election of 1876 was a very controversial election, it was the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.In 1870, Hiram Revels was the first black senator. The North ended the Reconstruction because they were too busy to look after the South, they were racist to African Americans, and they removed soldiers from Southern states.
This is where I learned the most about myself as both a writer and a reader. Initially, when writing my first draft, I focused on just the most prominent aspects of the article such as how Schulz framed her argument through a story and kept things factually and historically based rather than outwardly asserting her bias. Both subjects became the crux of my analysis, but my original draft lacked the analysis aspect a bit in that I had to dig deeper and provide better examples to support my stance. For example, in my original draft I focused a bit too much on bias and went to the extreme of saying that Schulz kept all bias out of her narrative and kept it completely objective. After further digging into Schulz’s background, and for what publication this article was established under, I had to rephrase this subject to acknowledge the bias but counter-argue why her credentials does not devalue the points she makes in “Citizen Khan.” I was prompted to reevaluate the phrasing and depth of the topics I addressed in my analysis by the comments on the first draft by my Professor.
In the 19th century, racism is a common issue that was not being treated seriously. There are a variety of ethnic groups within the United States itself, and each group is treated differently depending on their skin color. Many serious cases that happened including insults and or even as far as murders. The majority looking down at the minority was considered as a normal thing, however, the formidable groups do not even have the right and the strength to speak up for themselves. This problem did not get solved until one person finally decided to stand up and fight for the rights everyone deserves to have, which was when Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, in 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C at which
My journalism experience has given me a keen sense of gathering data and extract the kernel of meaning and essence of truth from it all. On the other hand my work creating taching materials for business students has honed my abilities to communicate in the write way, tone and language to convey the essential message behind concepts. I have started to put these skills into use as a copywriter at SEK Loyal as well as freelance web producer projects. I’m finishing my masters in marketing economics
Why is there still racial inequality? Racial inequality still exists even after Rosa Parks, Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, Malcolm X, and Nelson Mandela tried to stop it. Most African Americans and Hispanics expect for inequality to stop. Because they are most likely to be killed by whites, have no good education, unemployment, incarceration, no good health, and aren't paid that much money. Racial inequality has been such a huge problem that even eight important people tried to stop it.
A large group of people were happy to see slavery ended and civil rights rise. However, the majority of white southerners, particularly after being disenfranchised by the Civil War, were bitter and angry. They had lost their ways of life, their lands, and slaves that they considered to be their property, therefore they took out their anger on the only people they could: their former slaves. In Leon F.
Racism is a part of American history that can never be forgotten; a dark past that shows the constant mistreatment of African-Americans. Although African-Americans were freed from slavery in the 1860’s, discrimination continues to be seen today. Racism is defined as prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one 's own race is superior. The white supremacy woven into mainstream American culture led to the continued widespread exclusion of African-Americans. In the sporting world, race is a widely discussed topic that frequently comes up.
These pieces weren’t just assigned to fill out a lesson plan, but to also serve as way to show us the zeitgeist of the era in which they were written. Authors were not being hailed as literary geniuses because they wrote a book we still read today; instead, Mr. Saldivar encouraged us to be critical of the themes, imagery and word choices they implemented throughout their
My artifact is about a book I read called Fahrenheit 451 and We had to pick a theme or character to talk about and analyze their changes throughout the book. What I learned through the essay is that you need to revise your work all the time to catch your mistake and you have to be patient to find these mistakes. The main idea in my essay was to show Montag change of talking about books throughout many event that captured Montag to change his feeling towards books. It shows that people can change throughout time when they have motivation and help with them. We were assigned this artifact because the way how the book progress and the message in the book stating that we are paying attention more to media then books.
In the first draft the author jumps right to the thesis statement and the publisher’s purpose. He does not have a clear introduction because it was missing an attention getter. The author started talking what the essay was going to be about, and for me it was just like the author didn’t want to spend more time working on the introduction. The author had some problems with sentence structure, moreover, I think that the author wanted to be more specific about what he/she was talking about that sometimes he/she confused himself. For example when the author was talking about the audience, the author said: “Having his article published in an online news source, Inside Higher Ed, allows for Jaschik to have an audience of first year English..”, for me he/she could had gone to something more simple like: “Jaschik had his article published in Inside Higher Ed, which allowed him to have an audience the fitted audience for this article...” When the author was talking about the rhetorical choices, he/she could use more examples because it seemed the author just wanted to be very brief, and not specific.
