There is no excuse for being ruthless and unhumane like towards someone for their race. I also took away a very important life lesson from the book: Different is new and new is not weird. I think that is a very important life lesson to learn because althought someone may not be exactly like you they should still be treated with respect. There's also only one of you, why would u want a second person just like you; we need different people in this
Racial tensions in Los Angeles came into the public eye when a gang of sailors beat up a group of Mexican-Americans wearing “zoot suits” in June of 1943. This led to the mass incarceration of these individuals known as “pachucos”. This initial incident was followed by days of violence in which servicemen roamed the Los Angeles area and physically assaulted any Mexican American they found in zoot suit apparel. The following two nights, the attacks progressed and though a few sailors were arrested while others were warned not to proceed in further assaults, word of the rioting spread and more military personnel from other areas of the city joined in as well. These events were preceded by increased racial tension between Mexican-Americans and Anglo Saxons.
‘For What It’s Worth’ by Buffalo Springfield has a logical message because it is referring to the Sunset Strip Riots that took place in Hollywood during the 1960’s. People protested when they lost their civil rights due to a curfew law that was put into place. The song says, “Stop, children, what’s that sound. Everybody look- what’s going down?” Community members were angry at the young people going to clubs at night because they were “loud” and “disruptive”. The curfew law was put into place after the complaints and the youth became outraged.
Cincinnati had race riots going on since the 1800’s. A riot is a public outbreak of fights and violence between two racial groups in a community. One outbreak started in 1829 between Irish immigrants and African Americans for jobs in Cincinnati. Their goal was to get rid of the Black African Americans.They were wanting the African Americans to move to Canada or get out of Cincinnati period. The Cincinnati Race Riots has been starting in the late 1800’s which the author believes it is still occurring in today’s world.
Do you think America is institutionally racist? Who is at a disadvantage? Institutional racism means that there is a systematic way for certain groups of people to be put at a lower level or advantage than another group of people. There was definitely institutional racism in America about fifty years ago, and I know that because I can name specific institutions who were racist to the black minority. But in order for anyone to fight modern day institutional racism, you have to tell me what company is being racist, tell me why, and we can fight that together.
Previous research suggests that direct interventions and discussions about race can help (Staiger 2006) (Hardie, 2013). A course which educates the staff and all students on colorblind racism and how it occurs should be taught. This type of racism should
Do all people really know the meaning of racism? Racism is the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races (Dictionary.com). Racism has been in our world for a lifetime. Race has been the key component in separating humans around the world. It has been the leading cause of political and economic conflict.
Society has always been something that changes over time. Somebody can be upset at these changes yes, but we can 't go back in time just because it would be more convenient for a few people. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few after all I suppose. As things are always changing, perhaps in the future the very facts of society that people hate, would become obsolete, just for a new problem to arise. Pleasing everybody is impossible in this world.
It has been around for thousands of years. Those that have power are afraid of someone taking that power away from them, and they do not like feeling inferior to others since they have never experienced that. It is not right for people to think like that, and if there is to be further progress, then people will have to set aside their differences and come together. People need to stop thinking of others as different because of their income, race and such because in the end we are all human beings. The system of class differences should be changed because it is only hurting people, and that everyone could benefit from the change.
