He is considered to be the primary reason why he was not able to win the war in Vietnam as he overestimated the American people’s patience and tolerance of friendly losses. The Vietnam War gives valuable lessons that can be used in the present-day war campaigns. For one, the Vietnam War was based on deception that is the trend today as with the insurgents and terrorist groups. Though U.S. and South Vietnamese forces managed to hold off the Communist attacks, the offensive shocked and demoralized not only their forces but as well as the American public and further eroded support for the war effort. The victory gained by the ‘Tet offensive’ (CNN, 1988) that triggered the deliberate and shameful withdrawal of US forces from the region.
That wasn't the only problem though, most of the troopers that got drafted didn't want to be in this war against North Vietnam. The song " I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die Rag", sung by Country Joe and the Fish is an honorable example of how the citizens were feeling during the time of war. This song was created based on how the American citizens viewed the Vietnam war. The loved ones of the general population were being drafted and dying for a complication that the government tried to fix. The purpose of this song was to make it clear to the government what was actually happening in the eyes of the public.
The whole poem talks about the offensive emotion that people had, they against the unfair treatment, the major theme of the poem is war, which is related with the Vietnam war and the social stage war. The writer protests against the war and unjust society, he said “I ani’t not Senator’s son”, which means that he did not have the privilege as the senator’s children, the normal people like him were force to the war even thought they against this war consequently, the son of senator had the right to avoid war, the reason is they were born in a rich and powerful family. This unfair position that the poor forced to fight. Moreover, they lost their life for obtaining benefit for the rich, contributed to the resistance of people. The poem reveals the dark side of society.
Although, King's speech which took place on August 28th, 1963, motivated many to stand up for who they are and fight for their rights as people living in America. Dr. King's words were eye openers to many because it gave them the realization of how cruel this discrimination was. His demonstration affirmed the nation that everyone does not need to tolerate the dreadful wave of racial injustice.The final result was a peaceful demonstration of how change positive change is frequent in American history. This I Have a Dream speech will always be recognized due to the power it had on the nation as a whole and its immortal notion of the horrors of racism. King's dream did eventually come true..."where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers."
King’s speech through his use of logic and evidence. Dr. King says, “It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’” This is an analogy. He reasons that everyone can relate to and understand this because money is such a predominant thing in life. Another thing he does is logically speak about discrimination and segregation.
To conclude, the once peaceful land of the Philippines was disrupted by the American desire for more power and although independence of the Philippines was eventually granted by the United States in 1946, the hundreds of thousands of lives lost cannot be justified and is another example of the negative effects that Imperialism has on a country and its people. To conclude the statement "Imperialism is racism without a flag" is an accurate representation of the concept of imperialism because while the idea of colonisation is the foundation of the world we know today, the negative effects that Imperialism has had throughout history in places like Australia, The Philippines and Africa
He lived in the north during the civil War but but yet he still didn’t agree with Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln's assassination was not justified because he freed slaves and he was a great leader. Abraham Lincoln’s assassination was unjustified because he freed slaves. In 1863 Abraham makes his final proclamation frees slaves. At the end of the war he officially ended slavery in America.
Another advantage for non-violent protest is it puts the government in a tough spot. It makes it extremely difficult for the government to interfere with the protest without it backfiring on them. Martin Luther King showed the rest of the world the way African Americans were treated down south by exposing the unlawful treatment they went through. All the way from a simple door greeter to the police. He was truly tired of being humiliated.
Today, America is an ignorant society, many believe that racism has ended throughout every corners of the world and this is far from the truth. American society likes to pretend, they also like to believe in the virtue of this country. We tend to think and believe that racism is a thing from the past and Racism is everywhere in the country and in this world it causes so much racial tensions from people with the a different skin color to religions to race and gives people so many to question how far we have really come from the days of ‘slavery’. These issues can actually be seen in a daily life from papers saying “police force violence against minorities” the well studied arguments on immigration and the obvious separations of urban neighborhoods in large cities. The negative behavior on people generations to generation and discrimination to others is ignorance about a person’s life.
Slavery in one word is described as corruption. It was the reason for the United States Civil War and for the lost of so many lives. In the Narrative of Frederick Douglass, Frederick Douglass describes the events of his life and how he was deprived of the natural rights. Frederick Douglass' message is that to a slave sometimes ignorance is bliss because the intelligence of knowing can be insanity because they have no power to control their lives. Slavery, however, does not only affect the morality of the slaves themselves but in the corruption of others around them.
(History.com) JFK’s assassination was extremely unjust due to his great contributions to the ending of segregational laws and other problems this country faced at that period in history. The fact that this man had the audacity to eliminate such a key figure in American politics is shocking. John F. Kennedy did not deserve such an abrupt ending to his life, for he was the leader this country needed at that time. His contributions to end segregation will be forever remembered. A few of his contributions included, making sure that African Americans
Racial profiling is morally wrong: I cannot stress this point enough racial profiling is morally and ethically wrong.It degrades the American psyche by treating its citizens as second class citizens.It generalizes,it paints with broad strokes that minorities are criminals and worthy of profiling.Not to mention that profiling by The United States is Hypocritical a country that promotes liberty,freedom and ideals of justice should not violate it 's citizens civil liberties,such as racial profiling does.Now,i will give a now famous example about racial profiling gone bad.Trayvon Martin a normal 17 year old African American teenager was staying at a gated community in Sanford, Fla. when he was killed by George Zimmerman.Zimmerman reportedly before
One crime, for example, occurred after the end of the Civil War, when former slaves went to vote, and total of sixteen African Americans were elected to office. This election caused violent reactions in the southern states by several hate groups, including the Ku Klux Klan (records of rights.org). These violent outbreaks took a major toll on the lives of an African American. Because the government was scared to challenge the white supremacist groups, the black’s rights were not enforced, and they became, again, like slaves, who were mistreated, and had no say in their politics or the actions of the government. The actions of the hate groups not only effected an African American’s political power, but also their daily lives.
A book on this topic, The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander, explains how the criminal justice system “Intentionally targets poor uneducated black men.” Michelle Alexander , author of The New Jim Crow, claims that the prison system is a racial hierarchy and reform is ineffective, the only true solution is to dismantle the prison system altogether. This claim seems drastic but
