Guns are dangerous, but so is every weapon. Even if we outlawed every weapon in the United States, there would still be Murder. There was 89 murders in California, 82 murders in Texas, and 32 murders in New York, caused by a person using only their bare hands (FBI: UCR, 2016). We are willing to discuss banning guns for “killing people”.
We are saying that committing a crime against a stranger due to their way of life, and no other reason is worse than committing a crime out of anger or out of disagreement. In conclusion, there are pros and cons of hate crime laws, however in reality they are a necessity in our criminal justice system. They are equally beneficial to minorities as well as the majority. they equally protect everyone.
“The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142). In the end, the government couldn’t find Montag, but because everyone was watching the search for him on their TV’s, the government killed an innocent man pretending it was Montag. The society was glad Montag was dead, even though it wasn 't really him.
The South Carolina House voted to remove the confederate Flag from the capital property after hours of debate and emotional speeches for and against taking down the flag. But if there was never the massacre of nine black church members never happened would they still of taken the flag down? A fight over the Confederate flag even popped up in congress when Republicans proposed a allowing the flag in federally ran cemeteries. There is a lot of emotional debate when it comes to the flag.
One of the reasons why Trump isn’t fit to become president is because he promotes violence, as shown throughout several of his rallies. In the article, “Donald Trump Encourages Violence At His Rallies. His Fans Are Listening,” by Sam Stein and Dana Liebelson, the authors wrote about how a video released showed a gang of men kicking and punching a Black Lives Matter protester at a Trump rally, to which Donald Trump Responded with, “Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing(Diamond).” In other words, supporters of Trump thought it was appropriate to attack a protester all because he disrupted his speech. As a potential leader, Donald Trump shouldn’t have advocated for the violence at his rally just because the person didn’t agree with him.
He was murdered by the indifference of every white minister of the gospel who has remained silent behind the safe security of his stained-glass windows. And he was murdered by the cowardice of every Negro who passively accepts the evils of segregation and stands on the sidelines in the struggle for justice” (Selma). And Jackson’s death is the most important material that created the march from Selma to Alabama State’s capital in Montgomery on the day of 7 March 1965. This march is one of the key point of the whole campaign, as
Americans were devastated by this tragedy. People were shocked that such a tragic event could take place and immediately had to find a place to push the blame. This blame got placed on the United States Government. Society buys into the Sandy Hook conspiracy theory because of the mindset on
The Serbs even went so far as to take over what was thought to be a safe house to lure in unsuspecting Muslims trying to escape the Serbian wrath. One of the most heartbreaking massacres happened on July 11 1995, when eight thousand Muslim men and boys that had fled to the safe house were captured and killed. Two thousand prisoners of war were killed by the Serbs, and the entire Muslim population of Srebrenica was expelled from their
People have the right to free speech. Freedom of Speech is very important to spread information around the world. Many use the ability of this First Amendment for political and religious force. Before Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Religion many had trouble to express themselves not just here in the United States, but all over the world. Many were persecuted for even saying something that does not correspond to their beliefs.
These innocent Muslims from London went to their holy mosque just to be met by the man that would attempt to kill them solely because of their religion. An article called, “Teens are Often hated recruits” by Tamara Koehler and Tom Kisken, establish the idea that, “the most religiously motivated hate crimes are acts of vandalism, and personal attacks are directed against Muslims” (Koehler 2). The question is why Muslims suffer from so many hate crimes? Muslims are blamed for immigration crisis in many countries because it’s another group that the whites have to compete against and are considered a threat. Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1).
With those numbers, 4.5% of the people who are using ACA are illegal immigrants, that is more than the percent of people in the US who are using Obamacare (3.5%). A great deal of people in the US are skeptical of our current elected president due to his jerkish, angry, and sometimes racist persona. I believe some of Donald Trump’s stances are way too extreme, the travel ban on Muslims being the most outrageous. As a searching for solace young person, I myself have contemplated the beauty of Islam, read parts of the Quran, and I was amazed. Had I decided to become a Muslim, would I too be deported from the country I was born in?
Using President Ronald Reagan words, Cruz said his strategy “should be very simple -- to defeat radical Islam – We win, they lose.” He noted that the recent shooting occurred within weeks after the terrorist attacks in Paris. “This horrific murder underscores that we are at a time of war,” Cruz said. “Whether or not President Obama or the current administration is willing to acknowledge it, our enemies are at war with us.”
There are many fake assumptions that people from the US assume about muslim people. People think since one person did something bad that everyone of that religion is the same. Now muslim people can have a harder time getting onto planes because they now have to deal with stereotypes caused by events like 911. Altho some muslims can fit under those assumptions, it doesn 't mean that every muslim does. Not all americans make this assumption either.
It is weird that the country of freedom looks and minds at such actions, and it makes us think are they faking the freedom that they are always shouting for? It is true that what Colin Kaepernick did is disrespectful for his country firstly and himself secondly, but as a foreigner I have always heard that the United States of America is the only country where you freely do whatever you want. However, it seems that what I read in Ta-Nehisi Coates about the racism is so true; discrimination exists in the country of freedom. Moreover, what Donald Trump said about Colin Kaepernick when he didn’t stand while playing National Anthem, which is leaving the United States and finding another one is a shame for the country; as it always been the only country that welcomes all the people from different countries, races and religions.
In Behind the Backlash: Muslim Americans After 9/11 the author states, “Arabs are caught between Census categories (where they appear as "white") and reality, between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ (Suhay136). Because of 9/11 many Arab/Muslim Americans are placed into another category, resulting in many Arab/Muslims feeling unwanted in their own lands even though they hold US passports. Often times the 9/11 attacks is said to have united the Americans, but many Muslim/Arab Americans who lived in the US for many years were not allowed to share the same grief many Americans did, but instead, many Muslim Americans were looked upon as terrorists
