Others use negative terms for whites and Asians. We tend to resist acknowledging that our comments may be offensive to others”(Robert pg 43). Knowing that racism starts just by individuals not watching what they say is a big problem, this impact on society it creates is careless. There should not be so many problems over different skin colors. If there was no diversity it would be boring everyone would look the same, there would be no uniqueness in society.
Racial microaggression is invisible, people tend to make it visible through exaggeration. Because of how the victim exaggerates a situation it evolves into a language of expression for them. The victims are going to take advantage of this power if they are in a situation they feel insulted (microaggression). Dr. Derald Wing Sue, Ph. D. quote "Not because they see themselves as the victim, but empowered them by giving them a language of expression.
During the American Civil War, which took place between 1860-1865, the President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln, introduced the Emancipation Proclamation on the 1st of January 1863 which was designed to free all slaves in the rebellion states in the Confederate South. Slavery had played a significant role in the development of the Southern economy and therefore by introducing the Proclamation, Lincoln would hope for two main events to happen, one being the increase of black soldiers in the Union Army in order to defeat the South and the decrease of black slave labour which would hinder the development of the Southern Economy. However, although slaves had contributed to the development of the economy, in the long run slavery
The Civil War was fought because of rising tension between the North and the South. The war came to an end 1865. The last official battle was at Palmito Ranch. The Civil War was a war fought because people’s opinions and views were put at risk with the election of Abraham Lincoln because citizens knew he would be the one to end slavery. Southerners seceded from the United States in an effort to keep what they felt was economically necessary and essential to their way to life.
People that fall under the legalistic fallacy think that removing racist laws ends racism in everyday life. This suggests that people are only racist because they follow the laws that are in place. This is not true because de facto racial discrimination continues to exist in the United States even after racist laws are removed. The tokenistic fallacy suggests that since some people of color are successful, racism no longer exists. The suggestion that racism is eradicated because a select few are successful is harmful because it ignores all the other people of color that are struggling.
And the South finally decided that the wanted to get rid of the North government or against with Abraham Lincoln 's control. Of course, the end was they failed and the slavery abolished. Although many people knew that the war was disastrous, they began the war for benefits. So far, we should remember the experience of the US Civil War and search another peaceful way to solve the conflict instead the
Then there was Charles Sumner, thinking on the same lines as Stevens. According to www.history.com/topics/charles-sumner ”He saw Reconstruction as the opportunity to establish civil rights for blacks, first in the South where Congress had explicit authority and gradually in the North. In 1865 he insisted that suffrage be granted to all black males. At the time of his death, Sumner was still vainly agitating for federal legislation repealing all discriminatory laws.” Finally, there was President Andrew Johnson. After Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, just as the South surrendered in April 1865, and then Andrew Johnson inherited the problem of Reconstruction.
Former Confederate leaders like Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens claimed that the Civil War was fought because of state’s rights and how they wanted to fight back against federal tyranny. After reading the Apostles of Disunion: Southern Secession Commissioners and the Causes of the Civil War, I agree that the war was fought because of state’s rights. The people in the South wanted to keep slavery and were going to do anything they could to keep slavery. They believe that the government was trying to oppress the South by making them get rid of their slaves. The South was afraid that if Abraham Lincoln was elected president that he would abolish slavery.
The passing of the “International law relating to Racism and Gender Discrimination” were established to prevent the discrimination of women and the ethnic race, “Racism and Sexism.” The cultural and religious biases have become less evident, but nonetheless still present and are likewise expressed in a different manner. “Racism” nowadays is more or less associated with “Judgmentalism.” Judgmental behavior is a sinful defamation of character or a condemning attitude towards another person. People, in the world, ordinarily are quick to judge each other without reason. Many highly think of themselves and therefore they judge others unfairly, who they regard to be less intelligent or unskilled for not being able to measure up according to their
