In the article Krauthammer is trying to convince Americans, the reader that we freaked out to 9/11. He uses this whole article to show that we “overreacted”. He stated that this overreaction came from our fear which was understandable but not necessary. Krauthammer thinks that we Americans dramatized or exaggerated what
Proponents believe they when these specific races are being discriminated on media they should be more strict and have consequences for their actions but opponents believe when the public is being discriminated on media, it’s to show that these people are not great for the public, they might even include recent facts about how countries are being destroyed and there are killings by these specific race. I argue that racial discrimination on the media should be addressed more than it already is. I think this because hearing horrible news can cause poor mental and physical health. (“Trump is a Textbook Racist” - Jay A. Pearson) Minority races are still shown more negatively in media than white people. (“Disrupting Implicit Racial Bias and Other Forms of Discrimination to Improve Access Achievement, and Wellness for Students of Color” - David J. Johns) Also there are videos on media, about people getting verbally abused especially races that are constantly attacked.
“What's wrong with the world, mama, People livin' like they ain't got no mamas” This verse illustrates how this generation of people that act off of impulse as if they have no home training or morals being reckless in the decisions that have lasting consequences that not only affect the individual but others as well. Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism, But we still got terrorists here livin' In the USA, the big CIA The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK. This verse talks about all the violence that happens overseas like the feud with Iraq but more so the feuds that we have on the day to day basis: Gang violence, senseless killings over drugs and crimes the actual harm that we cause to each other. But if you only have love for your own race then you only leave space to discriminate and to discriminate only generates hate and when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah Madness is what you demonstrate. In this verse it talks about the tolerance and open- minded; we must have for everyone and not just our own race because to do so only leads to prejudice discrimination.
When Franz Ferdinand announced that he will be leaving to Sarajevo to greet the townspeople on June 28, 1914, a terrorist organization called the ‘Black Hand’ had meticulously arranged an attack against Franz Ferdinand. Due to unfortunate circumstances, one of the assassins had the opportunity to shoot the Archduke since the driver had turned on the wrong road. Due to these nationalistic feelings between certain countries, World War I occurred since the collective consciousness among a nation’s people deeply impacted the rest of the world with its rebellion against a country. World War I was inevitable to occur since these people had seriously rebelled against a more powerful country and remained obstinate to continue their fight until they had achieved their desires. Eventually, other countries joined the conflict to side with either Austria-Hungary or the
By taking a stand in favor of a more humane immigration policy, Selders did just that. In the wake of his trip, Selders faced tremendous political repercussions. He was vilified on local talk radio (Riccardi), and received angry emails and “more hate calls than I care to mention” (qtd. in Quintero). Some accused him of wanting to turn Greeley into a sanctuary for illegal immigrants.
America is said to have a melting pot of cultures brought together from different nationalities obtained from different individuals from across the world. However, as a result of increasing crimes, violence and terrorism, people believe that all blacks are thieves or all Muslims are terrorists. The US does have a problem with xenophobia because they fear that immigrants want to take away their jobs, they discriminate against Muslim and they seek to place more restrictions on immigrants entering the country. Firstly, people fear that immigrants from other countries want to take
An article by Lucia Graves recalls numerous accounts of violence in which black protestors or immigration activists were punched, kicked, or attacked by other Trump supporters. In addition, Trump openly justified these aggressive acts against protesters as somewhat necessary by stating, "We 've had some violent people as protesters" (Graves). Trump has elicited a strong response from his supporters, propagating negative sentiments towards the created out-group of Muslims and Latinos. By dismissing or remaining in denial on the issue, he is unknowingly condoning the continuation of aggression and polarization among voters. Heedlessly promoting the overgeneralization of groups like Muslims and Mexicans serves as yet another obstacle in the way of a post-racial society.
Babel With a hint of Rendition The films Babel (2006) and Rendition (2007) show how paranoia regarding foreigners and terrorism affect innocent lives. There has been a sort of hysteria regarding terrorism in America and unfortunately the faces that have been attached to it are brown. These films are especially relevant to the happenings in America right now with leaders such as Donald Trump expressing Islamophobic views. In Babel, there are different storylines and each of them is tied together with the gun that starts it all. The tour bus shooting is immediately broadcasted in America as having been a terrorist attack.
Trump is one of the candidates running for the Republican Party bid for President of the United States. He wrote a three-page statement explaining why he believes that “the worst elements of Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government”. In this statement, he explains that many of the Mexicans that come to America are drug dealers, rapists, and other criminals. This is all coming from a man that is viewed by millions of people as a plausible candidate for President of the United States. There will come a time where people that supports Trump, because of his discriminatory view on race, will act on those beliefs violently and without discrimination.
Bosnian nationalism was so intense that some sought any means in which to bring it about including the assassination of public officials in order to increase international awareness of their cause. When the Black Hand assassinated the Archduke it set off a firestorm of intense nationalism in all European countries which were now ready to prove that their nation was superior to others. "This created lots of confusion and chaos. In conclusion: Referring back to the question "Was Militarism the main outbreak of World war one?" There is no right or wrong answer.
The Red Scare was intimidating and shocking and Americans did not want that to spread by nativism to take over the U.S (Doc 1). Bolshevism was thought to drag down civilization in a mess caused by WWI (Doc 7). Bolsheviks were causing negativity in America, caused strikes and negatively influenced the social ideas of Americans (Doc 8). The spread of communism caused Americans to come together and show what kind of nation they really are. Patriotism and nationalism arose to counter other beliefs and immigrant biases.
This fact upset many Americans as it does not benefit their own country and so the idea of Manifest Destiny was born. Texas and America plotted to overthrow the Mexican government through several underhanded ways that pinned the blame on Mexico. One of the several lies told was made by President Polk, leader of Texas. He lied to Congress by saying, “Mexico has passed the boundary of the United
In light of the recent election, a concerning social evil is the treatment of immigrants in the United States, specifically those of Latino/a backgrounds. The mimetic process was a particularly useful tool for the Trump campaign, as Trump’s hyperbolic and ignorant statements about immigrants resonated with caucasian, middle class Americans who imitated his hateful rhetoric and turned words into action. In the mimetic relationship, an individual or a group is victimized because of violence. The cycle of violence towards immigrants in the Trump campaign began as verbal, but the ideas behind Trump’s words inspired hate crimes and the reemergence of the Ku Klux Klan, which further validated this insularity. The solution to the mimetic process is
The articles Donald Trump Makes Mexican Soccer Great Again and Crisis in Mexico: The Disappearing by Goldman has similarities in offending minorities with actions or words. This is indicating the rhetorical violence in the events happening which Donald Trump is saying Mexicans are only criminals and rapist. Additionally, the 43 students have disappeared for no particular reason in their small town. Goldman in the article shows small clips of videos and other articles to back up his view on the topics. I believe that instead of political people making a change there causing more violence in the world.
