All was calm on the train until a white boy began to harass Patterson and Williams and push them off the train. Patterson defended himself and his friends when the white boy continued the harassment (Aretha 11-12). Twenty-one-year-old Victoria Price and seventeen-year-old Ruby Bates were also traveling on the train at the time it was stopped in Paint Rock, Alabama. The two white millworkers were also in search of work. Both girls came from poverty-stricken families (Sorensen 10).
When Dr. Schultz, a bounty hunter comes to the rescue and chooses Django to help him track down certain white people to catch, he lets the other slaves free and gives them a chance to shoot those two harsh white men. “The shifting stereotypes in Django Unchained have ideological implications of American slavery and their relationship to that history” (Speck, 2014, p. 248). Django was given the opportunity of freedom and to find his wife after catching the certain men. Django was also treated as a normal human being and not a slave, as he was given new clothes and a haircut. Also, he was seen riding on a horse which stunned the town they had entered.
Not only do they place stereotypes on Boo, they place stereotypes on those of different races, mainly blacks, and never question or think they are wrong. These exaggerated rumors affect many of the people, and are viewed as acceptable because of the specific structure of the town. The stereotypes exemplify the disrespect the people have for each other and illustrate the solution needed to avoid this problem. Classism is also embedded into the structure of the town and often affects the lower classes, such as poor whites, mixed races, and blacks. This is displayed in the quote, “But I want to play with Walter, Aunty, why can’t I?”
Namely, the most popular organizations that are active in America is the Black Lives Matter movement, born from the cries of the Trayvon Martin case. This organization’s motivation is to create solutions that end systematic discrimination in America (McClain). These organizations are criticized for being radical, trying to solve a problem that critics say do not exist. All Lives Matter is an example of backlash, created for the sheer fact of refuting Black Lives Matter. However, what those who oppose Black Lives Matter fail to recognize is that the movement was created to elevate the status of the black community in society, not bring down everyone else that is not black.
Stereotypes about minorities can spark from their presence’s perceived invasiveness to the stability that society values in this theory, and lead to racial profiling. Omi and Winant believe a system of racial meanings and stereotypes is prominent in the culture of the United States, and these racial meanings are formed from ideologies that establish and maintain a color line (Omi and Winant 5). This color line is a key concept the dominant white culture values that systemizes inequality and encourages stability in the Functionalist Perspective. Therefore, when the social order of society is challenged by new cultures and assimilation is unsuccessful, prejudice is formed. A large contributor to this prejudice is the media, which has been infamous in spreading images of racial minorities which establish their general appearances and behaviors (Omi and Winant 5).
For anything to succeed, you need an equality viewpoint”(Richard). When people try and take advantage of being colored and try to make it to where they are making themselves look like they are the “top” people because they get to have opportunities that non-colored people do not have, is not being parallel and is very unfair. When society starts seeing others do something out of the ordinary or unusual, they are going to take action and most of the time it is not going to be good. Furthermore, it is important to look at this in an equal manner because
On March 25, 1931, a few individuals were on a cargo train going in the middle of Chattanooga and Memphis, Tennessee. A few white young people hopped off the train and told the sheriff that they had been assaulted by a gathering of black youngsters. The sheriff nominated a force , halted and sought the train at Paint Rock, Alabama and captured the boys. Two youthful white ladies additionally got off the train
Providing a proper and accurate education to Southern education systems would greatly improve the single-minSolving Racism in the South Throughout history, there have been numerous accounts of discrimination that have been embedded into our way of thinking. Predominantly known for being racist and conservative, the Southern states still incorporate discriminatory views in their own society. Racism is a massive problem in the United States, but there are three possible solutions; educating the public through the education system; breaking down stereotypes; reaching out through social media. dedness of its citizens. The Southern states have been guilty of falsifying their history to better suit themselves.
According to the documentary “Terrible Transformation” and the textbook, foundation of slavery was based on race. When Benny started to learn trade, his teacher or his classmates liked him and they got along; however, as soon as they realized that he is “nigger” suddenly they refused to be friends with him (P.151). This event precisely shows the prejudice against Black people was deeply rooted in the minds of white people whether American or European. After discovering a person has a Black ancestry no matter how much they liked that person, the Black person should be excluded. Also, it shows white people saw their race as superior that comes with privilege, while Black as the inferior race was not subjected to those privileges.
I hate knowing that cultural appropriation is still occurring. The fact that white people are able to take the African American’s originality without going through the same negative reaction as black people is unfair, and this goes for all the “trends” they decide to copy. White people are privileged. They take aspects of the African American culture, yet they do not receive the harsh feedback that African Americans would get when they do the same thing. I believe that white people should stop using the excuse that it’s “just a hairstyle” or “just a trend” and realize that African American people wear what they wear for a reason.
The white people down in the south, aka the confederate states, were the people who had started the “Jim Crow Laws” because they’re racist and wanted power over the black people. They also made it hard for black people to vote and do things. They weren’t in control of black people but they were bossing them around. Black people also didn’t get enough freedom, as the white people separated them. Blacks got old stuff, whites got new stuff.
