I think your analysis is solid. I agree that upon Peter’s death, Martin is the sole property owner. I like how you pointed out that the gesture to transfer Peter’s property to Andrew “contradicts the legal agreement of joint tenancy.” I think there is validity to your assertions that Otis is a trespasser and for Martin to start the eviction process. I also like the suggestion of pursuing a lease with Otis.
Driven by the belief that space was bequeathed to them, the Native Americans feel justified in defending their land against the growing encroachment of the white man as the American landscape unfolds. Their motive is the premise that a higher authority has granted them the right to the space, and that the Great Spirit has created the landscape exclusively for them. Fueled by the formation of conflict over land, the Great Ottawa Chief, Pontiac, in his speech at Detroit, seeks to persuade the tribes, including the Ottawa, Huron, and Pottawatomi to agree to resistance. Invoking the words of the Delaware prophet, Neolin, Pontiac recounts the vision which he believes justifies resistance. Neolin urges the tribes to sever all relations to the customs
In this case, the court ruled that the evacuation order which was violated by Korematsu was valid, and although “The constitutional issues should be addressed… it is clear that the “martial necessity arising from the danger of espionage and sabotage” warranted the military evacuation order.” As stated by Justice Frankfurter. In opposing thoughts, The Dissenting opinion written by Justice Jackson reads, "Korematsu ... has been convicted of an act not commonly thought a crime. It consists merely of being present in the state whereof he is a citizen, near the place where he was born, and where all his life he has lived.” Although this court case was finalized with Fred Korematsu being guilty, this case has sparked interest in the minds of thousands and whether they agree or disagree I will always agree with the second ruling.
The history behind Jackson’s decision is critical to determining its ethicalness. Ever since settlers have stepped foot on North American soil, they have trespassed and violated Indian Territories. The U.S. was the first country to respect the Indian nations as separate countries that have rights to their land and
A Yale Law Journal author wrote an academic article on this issue. They discuss how the Supreme Court’s landmark decisions led to them saying that, “the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms and incorporated that right against the state 's, courts and scholars have struggled to determine the reach of those opinions.” The court held that the Amendment did not bestow a new privilege, but a pre-existing right. As I believe, they confirmed that preserving the militia was key to the right’s codification. They also believe that self-defense was the central component of the right itself.
There 's been a lot of wishful thinking about the 14th Amendment and I also have to agree with you Derick, when you mentioned that you were not born here. I actually do share the same views and I am also a naturalized citizen which also give me the privilege to vote. In my beliefs the civil-rights law protecting racial minorities from discrimination and it is still illegal to discriminate against a person when voting. Furthermore, the Voting Rights Act has been the most effective piece of civil rights legislation. However,It is stated that the Constitution 's emphasis on place of birth is antiquated.
The Native people assert that as a culture that long existed before the first settlers set foot on this land, they have rights to self-governance. Moreover, the film effectively uses syllogism when the question of freedom and inequality arises in an interview with Trudell when he states, “This is a country where all men are created equal and it’s the land of the free and the home of truth, justice, and liberty for all.” He says all this to pose the question, “Well we wanna [sic] know why that doesn’t apply to us?” (Trudell). His question is asked to provoke thought on the issue.
Ideal of liberty and equality was a struggle that changed American society. Indians tried to avoid entanglement in between America and Britain. They were fine due to the proclamation of 1763 but American victories would stream settlers
Throughout history the Native America have faced many obstacles, the genocide from the settlers and the U.S government who suppress their freedom with wars and unfair treatment. I found that it is very impressed how they could manage to keep all these collections at the museum to show the world that they were once a rich and powerful civilization just like other civilization around the world and all these things are represent a culture that once was long but it is important to discover what have been missing and cherish the remaining of a
The distinction made by Hernandez before the Supreme Court is such that although the State may classify Mexican-Americans as “Whites,” the difference in treatment renders them worlds apart from Caucasians. Ironically, it was necessary for Hernandez to make this distinction in order to be treated as an equal. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that the triumph of intellect over power is essential to our survival as a species. Undeserving patriotism aside, America is the only country since its birth that has repeatedly said that we can do better; it is inherent in our being. When we fight for our rights as men, we don’t defend a piece of paper or land but rather the ideas they were founded on and so long as we hold sacred and undeniable the principle that all men are created equal, America will never
I can not stand having freed slaves roaming around the streets like if they’re apart of the community too. Once you become a slave you will always be a slave. I rather use black codes against the black people and try to take away some of their rights instead of trying to kill them like the KKK are. Many southern states as well as my home state South Carolina are forcing black codes to keep white supremacy in place. I remember a few weeks ago I was walking to the court to be apart the jury.
