Using propaganda was a crucial part for acquiring and maintaining power. Propaganda made sure to make Jews look like the villain in the German people eyes. Hitler and his army were able to brainwash his whole nation into accepting the idea of committing mass genocide. To captivate German and get his message out, Hitler started a new idea: German Youth. According to the article “The Structures
The people involved in this mass murder are Hitler (chancellor of Germany), Hermann Goering (commander of the air force) and Joachin von Ribbentrop, minister of Foreign Affairs (Yeatts 38). Hitler also had another special group called SS authorities or officers formed by Hitler in 1925. These people were Hitler special guards and would later help with the “Final Solution” (Steele 19). Some groups of people did not have to worry about the Holocaust like the Aryans known to Hitler as the master race (Steele 19). Hitler liked this group so much that any other other group must die in order to make more room for the master race (Introduction).
Graff said he did “what [he] believed was necessary for the preservation of the human race” (Card 235). The I.F. did take control with extreme parallels to the Nazi takeover. But the colonel is not a complete Hitler figure. While Hitler’s attack in the Jews was completely unprovoked, the buggers had attacked Earth two earlier times, nearly destroying humanity.
Following the stereotypes, one can simplify the whole picture of the world and make it more comprehensible. But very often the stereotypes appear to be too generalized or wrong. One of the crucial social issues in the United States is constant racial stereotyping of ethnic minorities, which leads to the emergence of such phenomena as racism and discrimination. Brent Staples in his essay “Just Walk on By: Black Men and Public Space” and Judith Ortiz Cofer in her work “The Myth of the Latin Woman: Just Met a Girl Named Maria” both make several important observations about the biased attitude of the whites to ethnic minorities in the United States. Although both authors present their own life experiences and reveal the harmful consequences of racial stereotyping in the society their points of view on the ways of avoiding the conflict situations based on those misunderstandings are different.
The Nazis were a legion of sadistic mass murderers who exploited various forms of torture to annihilate all people who they considered lesser to them. Their manic killing spree was fueled by their determination for purity in the world. This was an event known as the Holocaust. The Nazis had a diverse group of victims, ranging from Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals. The Holocaust was led by Adolf Hitler, who strived for pure Germans, or aryans, to rule in a world free of those deemed unworthy.
I find that this example highlights the fact that while women had far less political power in society during the nineteenth century, the least the law could do was to protect the sexual integrity of women; However, African American women suffered from racial, gender and class discrimination that makes it difficult for them to prosecute those that sexually assault them. Furthermore, anger of white men were usually taken out on the wives of freed African American men and usually in the form of sexual assaults and this made the situation for African American women
Hitler and some German socialists believed in the purity of Germans’ ethnicity; they saw Jews and Gypsies as the most dangerous threat to their race purity. When Hitler came to power, he started stripping Jews from their jobs and properties. After that, he started gathering them from all Europe, departed them to the Polish ghettoes, and gassing and killing them. By the end of WWII, he killed more than 6 million Jews. However, there were some survivors who witnessed the whole catastrophic story of the Holocaust.
ESSAY #1 In the movie, “Separate but Equal”, the US is a much different place for whites than it is for blacks. Through the duration of the movie, we see many instances where racism, segregation, and discrimination are seen. As we watched the movie, we had to list and explain when racism, segregation, and discrimination were used. Examples of Racism- Racism is defined by merriam- webster as a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. During the court case fought for black rights, we see white doctors show statistics which state that the African American brain is smaller and less able to learn.
All of the articles discuss in detail how the stereotypes create inaccurate perceptions from members outside of their groups. For African Americans and Native Americans, these stereotypes originated in eras where White Americans typically had dominate social status. Debra Merskin (Merskin, 2001) used examples of African American stereotyping to help support her explanations of stereotyping of Native Americans. Although the stereotypes themselves are completely different, they both reflect long held beliefs from the past that are perpetuated in present day advertisements and reinforce the portrayal of White Americans as being of a higher social status. Additionally, The Order Sons of Italy (Italian American Stereotypes in U.S. Advertising, 2003) cite a recent Zogby poll that concludes 78% of American teenagers relate Italian Americans to crime and blue-collar work.
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.
