While people believe kneeling during the National Anthem is disrespecting the country 's ideals, I believe kneeling during the National Anthem is not disrespectful. The United States is not living up to its ideals of freedom, liberty, and justice for all no matter their race. Athletes are bringing awareness by a peaceful protest, which is protected under the first amendment for those who are oppressed. My cousin, a veteran, has also influenced my view on this situation. Seeing my own family member put their life in danger to save millions of others does not add up to someone kneeling on the sideline during the National Anthem.
Some countries are not safe because they don’t have the freedom that is needed to keep themselves plus their families safe. As in Mexico, people are wanting the freedom to be able to come to America. Some people may think that everyone is safe but really not because of everything as in selling drugs on the streets right in front of children. Family’s would love to be able to come over to America but they are not able to because of the one big word everyone loves to here is
Additionally, the American colonists felt that the implemented taxes and laws were unjust. There were many unjust laws and taxes forced upon the colonies. In document two, the author states that Great Britain has the “legal authority to regulate the trade of Great Britain and all her colonies”. He believes that the raising revenue from the trade was never intended, and that the British Parliament never had the intention of implementing duties - duties before the Stamp Act - for the sake of raising revenue. However, the author felt that the Stamp Act and Townshend Act and the other acts from the Stamp Act onwards were unconstitutional.
In Priscilla Alvarez’s article “Trump Prepares to End DACA,” she informs the reader about the background of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Donald Trump’s impending decision to end the program. The belief of removing DACA is just cruel and like Mr. Obama said, “Self-defeating.” The struggle with having a fair and permanent solution for immigrants. When will immigrants get their fair rights and to finally live life freely without the fear of being deported. Dreamers don 't oppose threats and are productive people in this society. What made this act get stopped since the article was talking about undocumented immigrants going to college or serving in the military.
Through the destruction of civilian towns and plantations, Sherman damaged countless lives mentally and economically. This depiction shows that the current generation and future generations would feel the effects of Sherman’s march. From the rubble emerged a broke economy and an enormous population of vengeful citizens. Thus, resulting in a country, although reunited, without peace. With this in mind, Sherman’s actions showed that he was not thinking about the good of the country, but instead he was thinking about his
One of America’s most controversial issues today is the border between the United States and Mexico. The big part of the issue is due to illegal immigration, which is when foreigners enter the U.S. without an entry or an immigrant visa. President Trump says he has found a solution, otherwise known as the “border wall,” but this will not stop people from wanting a better life. Of course I get why he and others would want to continue the process obviously to keep us safe from terrorists and other dangers of the world, but, to every pro there is a con. Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped.
Before this many Colonists did not know of the harsh injustices done by the British. They also did not believe that the cause for revolution was urgent. Thomas Paine showed them that the cause was urgent by explaining the wrongs the British had committed and why King George was a tyrant. He also showed them that America did not need the British Empire 's protection. This quote shows his reasoning “Small islands, not capable of protecting themselves, are the proper objects for kingdoms to take under their care; but there is something absurd, in supposing a continent to be perpetually governed by an island.” Another reason it was so influential is because it was sold very cheaply so as many people could read it as possible.
King states that “an unjust law is no law at all” because he believed that laws were put in place in order to benefit and aid the citizens of the state. If a law was unjust, however, it then was contradictory and should not be considered a law” (MLK). Martin Luther King Jr. stated, in his letter, “A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law, or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.” King also says an unjust law is one that is forced upon a minority by a
This act is preventing us from living to our full potential. Those Brits have the willingness to come to us, the American Colonists and say that we have to pay extra taxes for something that they do as well, this act is just hypocritical. Everyone deserves the same rights and it’s not fair to discriminate by who you are. The Proclamation of 1763 shows us that we don’t have equal rights as of now considering that American settlers cannot expand west of the Appalachian Mountains. Do you want a government that forces you to do stuff without getting to have a say, or a government that will listen to you and you will get a voice in it.
He would have never chosen to stay based on the information he had because he thought that Polybus and Merope were his real parents. This shows the cause and effect that determinism runs on because when his parents decided to lie to him, that led him to the decision to runaway. He would have never made any other decision based on the information he had. Although Oedipus thought that he was making his own free choice, he wasn’t because his decision was directly in response to his adopted parents actions to lie. This is why his actions were not free will but
