The negativity and oppression that was put on the african americans from the kkk, was the reason why there was a change. Without them the oppression would of taken a lot longer to build up to get to a point where change was needed. The kkk did such bad things that they got on the news constantly and they were spreading such shocking negativity that random people decided to speak up, if they didn 't do these shocking things who knows how many people would of stayed hidden. They started the chain reaction. “Black Americans have typically been the Klan 's primary target, it also has attacked Jews, immigrants, gays and lesbians and, until recently, Catholics”(splcenter.org).They Didn 't just influence women 's rights, they killed african americans, they killed whites who supported the movement, they killed both genders, therefore they influenced both races, both male and female, and that 's why we believe they had the biggest impact, it was just in a negative way, people remember the bad things more than the good, we reminisce on the kkk because we need to learn from it and we continue to learn from it, so we won 't repeat history.
I want to make an argument that racially-motivated police brutality is unfair. Police brutality is a use of unjustified force that can cause serious injury or even death. When it comes to situations where an unarmed black man was killed by a police officer, it hits the news fast and people pay more attention. The racism that comes from police is a sign of oppression to specific groups. This needs to come to attention because instead of reacting with public riots, we as a society need to be more proactive about changing the racism of police brutality.
Although Nat Turner’s rebellion is unjustifiable because so many were killed, he is not entirely to blame because white slaveholders denied him and other black people of basic rights which forced them to act out. The morality of Nat Turner’s rebellion may initially seem like a bit of a gray area. The bottom line is, however, if you take away the racial issues, you are left with 55 people murdered in cold blood. It would be one thing if all of the victims were white slaveholders, but at least 24 of them were children (Baker, 179.) They were killed for things that they hadn’t even done.
This is a big deal because blacks were not given the respect that they deserved, however, this was one moment. His legacy does not portray the respect that he had for blacks or slaves but instead his legacy is violence. Source 2 has a letter from Mahala Doyle. She writes “I do feel gratified to hear that you were stopped in your fiendish career at harper’s ferry…[For you] entered my house at midnight and arrested my husband and two boys, and took them out of the yard and in cold blood shot them dead in my hearing.” That proves that instead of a hero a lot of people just see his violent legacy. Brown is also remembered to have remained calm and controlled the press.
Short term impact: Nat Turner led a rebellion against whites and slave owners, killed 55 people and left whites terrified that there would be other slave rebellions so they made more severe slave codes. Long term impact: In the United states now we do not have slavery and that is mainly because Nat Turner stood up to slavery through his rebellion. He also inspired others to stand up for themselves. Thesis: Nat Turner was a brave, daring, rebellious, African American slave that took a motivational stand against slavery because he was tired of seeing innocent people suffer for no reason, this was the impetus for the civil war. The Heart of the story: Nat Turner led a rebellion of slaves that took a big part of ending slavery and he let people know everyone should be treated equally.
The family structure has been ruined therefore this have been the cause of detainment isolation inside the African American race. Drugs and crime have poorly affected the African American people which caused them to be put in jail for drug offenses normally where they get to be noticeably dangerous to the point of slaughtering another. These African American men 's circumstance is not scrutinized for accomplishment but instead disappointment with life in jail until death. The criminal equity framework is building more remedial offices and prisons to house them as opposed to defensive measures like reclamation, work planning ventures to help them change in accordance with society. African American folks have been profiled more than any race in all encroachment from movement references to capital murder cases and solution charges where they are getting more open door for split than powdered cocaine.
When it comes to racial profiling people automatically believe that it is harsh and inhuman as well that the victim had nothing to do that caused racial profiling , when it comes to being frisked and detained. In an article written by “National institute of Justice” it stated “What is clear from the research is that race is a consistent predictor of attitudes toward the police. Hence, some researchers argue that what happens during the stop is as important as the reason for it”. when it comes to law enforcement people always blame the police officer for taken a little more action on detaining someone. What people don 't know is why that officer took that extra action to the person being detained.
We are brainwashed by what the news shows us. Now every time we see an incident with a police man and a minority we automatically think racism. Police officers are scared to protect civilians because they are afraid of losing their jobs. Many police officers are suspended and fired for getting in a tussle with a minority. In most cases police officers subdue people because they may be a threat to society.
Resistance to Reconstruction was incredibly aggressive and violent since Southerners were extremely appalled by the radical social transformations that were resulting from Reconstruction, so those Southerners terrorized and killed the Republicans and the black people responsible for the changes. Black people were supposedly guaranteed equality before the law by the 14th amendment, however, their rights were not always upheld. Southerners would kill black people over minor actions, like not yielding to whites on sidewalks or attempting to buy land. A terrorist organization, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), formed in 1866 to punish people who “defied the norms of white supremacy”. Ordinary black people were killed by the KKK alongside black and white
Citizens not only experience discrimination in the work field, they also experience it at school, stores, movies, theaters, or while seeking health care. Recently, the biggest outrage of discrimination has been by police brutality towards innocent black or minority citizens. According to the Washington Post, 908 people have been assaulted, shot, and brutally murdered by police in 2016, most of which are native American, black, or Hispanic. The 14th amendment’s purpose is meant to protect all citizens of the United States, disregarding race, but why has no justice been served to the deaths of these innocent
