Tyler Oakley once said, in his book Binge,“This is why homophobia is a terrible evil: it disguises itself as concern while it is inherently hate.” This is one of the most important topics the world is facing: Homophobia. Homophobia is the fear & hating of people in the LGBTQ+ community. People in this community face discrimination from all around them. However, I believe this shouldn’t be the case. If I had the option of changing the world, the one change I would make is stopping the discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ individuals because they face too much discrimination, some of them are extremely strong and powerful, and all face violence and sometimes murdering.
Columbus’ obsession with bettering himself destroyed multiple cultures and destroyed the basic human rights that people are granted every day. He is not an icon and does not deserve the sympathy given to him because ‘he was raised that way.’ The genocide he caused to the Arawak population is a perfect example of how he destroyed an entire culture. Because the Arawaks were facing mass extermination, they organized and attempted to fight back against Columbus and his men. Then again, they were no match for their horses and armoury. The Spaniards hung or burned the natives that they took captive.
Once there were no trees, all of the nutrient-filled topsoil was washed away due to the fact there were no tree roots to hold it down (Dangerfield). Without soil to grow crops and no wood to build canoes- the Rapa Nui people turned on each other. As the people of the island slowly began to starve, they were forced to become cannibalistic. Human bones were found in large pits where other food waste was thrown, providing further evidence that the islanders were forced to resort to cannibalism (How Easter Island Works). If the trees had never been destroyed in the first place, the Rapa Nui people never would have had to resort to this inhuman
They were one of the leading foundations for imposing the racial hatred towards black people. I honestly believe hate is taught, and people were ignorant and fearful. It was hard for people to understand the reasons to have hatred against someone based on their skin color but it made it more excusable if the universal perception was that the people were less than human. Black people were portrayed as brutish-like and unattractive. So it was very easy for anyone that doesn 't know the truth to believe in that lie.
However, the rebellion caused many people who were in favor of slavery, and also against it, to unite in a common fear, a bigger consent, which affected all white people in America. They believed slaves would overturn again against them which would result in many more slaughters and rebellions. They feared more aggression would happen, and they were scared that it slavery was continued, more harm would happen to the white population, as they created enormous contempt in a community that exponentially
A large one in our society is the racism against Muslims. People assume the worst of them because ‘they cause so many terrorist attacks’, however, that isn’t true. They are blamed for a lot of horrible events because of their race and culture which in turn, really hurts them. Our world shouldn’t be full of racism anymore, but somehow, there still is a bunch of it
Locklear (2012) in the previous research, by applying the framing and stereotype theories that she found in the literature, concludes that the media do have influence on promoting racism through Native American mascots used by sports teams. In her research, she questions the use of Native American imagery in media and media’s responbility viewpoints. They, the media, often mention Native American imagery in mascots offensively. For those people who do not agree with the use of Native American imagery, they argue that the media are not objective anymore though there some of them applied a policy about discontinuing the use of Native American Imagery in printing media or news. However, the supporters of the use of Native American Imagery argue that the media cannot be totally objective.
While we were engaged in bringing about peace our property was left behind, of course, and most of us have lost everything, even down to the matter of guns with which to kill ducks, rabbits, etc, shotguns, and guns of that order” (6). This passage showcases how the Indian tribes lost all they had in order for what the whites believed to be “peace.” From their homes to their food source to their weapons, Indian’s lifestyles dramatically changed to make room for the whites that
The right to speak is one of the fundamental human rights to maintain a democracy which is defined by the people. Besides that, freedom of speech is to speak without being fear of censoring. Everyone ought to know the situation of their country and have access of information in order to trust the country and the government. Additionally, protecting freedom of speech at all costs is to insulate the speech made regardless of the price that some might have to pay. Freedom of speech is indeed a basic human right, but does protecting free speech includes hate speech?
One reason why the death penalty should be illegal is because it’s very stressful on those who are involved. According to Berman there were several officials begging for them to change the pace of executions because it imposes stress and trauma (Berman). This proves that carrying out several executions can take a severe toll on correction officers wellbeing. Berman states, “In a state review, authorities wrote that the execution
