All these people, these humans, innocent people just like everybody else, are steadily being forced into slavery, some right now.

He said that MLK dedicated his life to love and equality between human beings. Kenndey’s effort to make a change and help stop all the hatred in this world. He states, “We can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand, and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love.” He’s saying that if we all come together and work as a team we can stop all the hatred in this world and start working together and creating a bond. We should all love each other equal no matter what color they are.
Reconciliation requires that all parts involved accept they are imperfect and flawed. It moves them to connect to a deep center in their hearts where all of humanity resides in harmony, where all citizens of the world are equally valuable and equally human. Reconciliation occurs when all parts are able to acknowledge that every human makes mistakes and deserves forgiveness, and that those mistakes are merely opportunities for mutual growth. Reconciliation is only possible when all parts involved have gone past judgement and into the understanding that no human is neither right nor wrong. This is why reconciliation requires truth; a humbling truth of equality that many choose to overlook, where every human being deserves to be treated with respect, no matter their story or their mistakes.
His quote “Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice… Now is the time for justice to be a reality to all of children” emphasize the message, of his speech, unification. People should not judge or control someone based on their background as if they are human, they should be treated equally and be encouraged to work for the betterment of humanity. As people, we should all accept that no one is greater than another person standing beside him based on his background but rather based on his character. His speech is a rallying for unity, freedom, and equality across the world; the nation that everyone is equal in the eyes of God and should be treated as
Ona and Teta also took jobs in order to meet ends of the family. Ona was also forced into sexual relations by her factory boss in return of the job for which she was employed. When Jurgis came to know about it, he goes to his wife’s factory and thrashed that man. After an unfair trial Jurgis was thrown into jail and was not able to work which pushed the family into a greater economic depression. This shows that how easy it was for the higher class of the society to commit a crime and still get out of it easily whereas the poor sections of the society suffers the most.
Women are rendered powerless because they fear deportation and losing their job. Supervisors sexually exploit the women, but the women have no one to turn to for help. The documentary highlights these issues and brings them to the forefront. Awareness brings changes. By making the public aware of these issues, more women are likely to speak up.
You need to learn about what happened to me and take the blindfold off your eyes.” (Romo) Jacinto’s experiences and story, as well as “Lisa’s Ritual” highlight the inhumane realities of women who are sold into sex slavery and women who struggle with domestic violence.

Unrestrained government control; limited or absolutely no freedom; no power to make your own choices. These things sound like the makings of a nightmare, which luckily is all they are. However, this is the reality that protagonists in dystopian novels must face. There are many other methods used in dystopian novels that fit this nightmarish life, including, a gender hierarchy, arranged marriages, and women having children to give to other families. Dystopian societies, conveyed through The Handmaid's Tale and Bumped, often control women’s relationships and bodies to stay in power.
She lies, uses strong persuasion and then she gets power and money. Towards the end of the novel, The Crucible, Abigail Williams ran away with another girl and was not heard of again. Her lies work so well from the beginning, but spiraled out of control, if she came clean at the start it would have been so simple. The novel relates to today's society because both societies, now and then, have corruption in the government and the greed for power. Although the occurrence which took place in Salem could not happen now it relates to other problems we face, such as convicting or killing someone without evidence.
was a better advocate for the Civil Rights movement because he was more peaceful in his actions. I do feel that both were very important people to bringing equality to this nation. But, MLK’s non-violent approach with handling things was much better in promoting civil justice. He wanted all groups of people to come together as one. Malcolm X wanted every race to be separated and I feel like if that would’ve happened the United States would be an awful place.
Just because a woman goes against what their husband 's or anyone in their family believe to being incorrect should not justify them to becoming horribly disfigured. Similarily, further into the novel the Pross story resonated deep into my mind. According to Nicholas D. Kristof, one of the authors of Half the Sky, Pross was kidnapped at the “thirteen” (11) and sold to “a brothel in Cambodia.” When Pross wanted to fight back and escape her situation, the “female brothel owner” punished her by taking one of her eyeballs out with a “metal rod.” The heartbreaking story of Pross is one of the many ways the individuals at a brothel break “the spirits of the young girls” (10).
Child Exploitation The men of today label the men of the past as barbaric and savages mostly due to the differences in which we use our brain capacity. The men of the past were living with unsanitary water, unstable governments, and would kill each other to claim a human being as their slave, taking men and women prisoners, but leaving the kids to live since they were no real threat. In today 's society, we don 't worry about other people trying to enslave us; we worry about making money. In our perfect democratic society we see potential in anything, even kids.
