They longed for equality, for this war to come to an end. However, his parents were not like that, they didn’t like not one person of color, no matter how respectful that person may be. All to say, discrimination has no age; it is timeless. They failed to realize that no matter what they may see, black skin, squinty eyes or even white skin, all humans are equal. Yet because of my skin color, I am not.
Atticus risks his reputation by showing empathy towards the black community by trying to help their community to be treated equally, he is rewarded with empathy by telling Walter Cunningham that he does not need to pay back his debt, and his final reward of empathy is teaching Scout and Jem the importance of empathy. Atticus risks his reputation that he has built up in the caste system when he takes on the case of working to defend Tom Robinson in attempts to gain equality for the black community.

But it wasn’t just the Freedom Riders Shuttlesworth helped. Fred Shuttlesworth also had founded the SCLC[Southern Christian Leadership Conference] with the men Ralph D. Abernathy and more famously, Martin Luther King Jr. The man had even put his family at risk for civil rights by having his three children integrate into a previously all-white school. The main thing about this was the fact that his children were alone, they had no other colored people in their school except for each other. But the actions taken against him were more drastic than his
While we learned very little about how slavery was abolished in the United States and especially globally, I knew this would be important fact in our history all over the world. I never heard the name George Washington Williams until this very class, and I find that discouraging, to be honest. George Washington Williams was a well-educated man. During the time George Washington Williams had the most influence, was a time of deep oppression and racism toward the Black community. People actually believed that these African Americans did not possess any social or intellectual qualities that would make them writers of substance.
Grant feels as if he shouldn’t feel obligated or pressured to help bring justice to Jefferson. This is because he believes that Jefferson got himself into that situation. Having been pushed to help bring justice for Jefferson, Grant says, “ And I teach the white folks around here, tell me to teach reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic. They never told me how to keep a black boy out of a liquor store” ( Gaines 13). In Grant’s view, this instance is none of his business.
In “The Color of Success” written by Eric Watts talks about how he was not taken seriously as an African American man because he acted too white.

He does not let these situations define who he is.
Is Mr. Keating a good english teacher? In my opinion, yes because he shows so much he cares about his students and his passion teaching his way, not by a book. Mr. Keating teaches his students about being more independent and more passionate about what they want to do or be. Mr. Keating is doing this because many of the parents are putting so much pressure on their kids to become a doctor or a lawyer. The reasons why many of the students listens to Mr. Keating is because he uses different teaching skills, making it seem more fun.

I gathered a lot of evidence throughout Patrick Shanley’s play, Doubt: A Parable, and I conclude that Father Flynn is guilty due to Donald being a very easy target and Father Flynn acting is very odd ways. Donald Muller, the little boy in the story, seems to be a very easy target for a predator. Donald is very isolated in school. He does not have any friends, so he the fact that the priest would accept him would make him feel accepted in the school. Donald is also the only black boy within the entire school.
He does not care for he is black but pursues an education even if it places the speaker in the minority. In the poem, he asks himself, “So will my page be colored that I write?" (“Theme” 66). The speaker is not asking for an apology or sympathy but, just understanding. He knows that the paper will be hard, knowing that he and his professor are two different colors that come from two separate worlds.
Washington also received a $2,000 grant to establish his school, today known as the Tuskegee University. He established the Tuskegee University in hope to educate the African American people. Washington did not see the school as a challenge to the white community.

Then he went on to attend college at Wayland Seminary now Virginia Union University. His mother married another slave and
