“Nobody cares how tough your upbringing was. Nobody cares if you suffered some discrimination. And moreover, you have to remember that whatever you 've gone through, it pales in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured - and they overcame them.” (Obama 6) In the speech Obama had presented at the graduation class of 2013 at Morehouse College, he wants them to remember their struggles and be able to overcome them to do what is right. Obama uses a lot of rhetorical appeal such as pathos, such as the fact that he did not have a father figure in his life, yet he reached the top position in the country after years of hard work and support from his single mother, and grandparents. The second most effective rhetorical appeal is ethos,
). Einstein thought differently he was a smart man and he liked to work with other smart people and he didn’t care what their skin color was or their ethnicity, he would see a really smart person with good ideas that he would like to work with and he did. That is why no matter what your profession is, we need to speak out about racism especially teachers in classrooms. All the children born here in the United States have to go to school, if teachers teach their students how bad racism really is we will already be creating awareness in these kids and they will know from young ages that it is wrong. It’s always been said that our children are our future, and if we educate them right our future will be better.
The pressure of the war has gone to everyone’s heads in Devon. Anything the students did at Devon did not make them forget the pressure of the war.

Racism, defined in moderation as prejudice or discrimination towards another race, deeming one’s own race as superior, is and has been a very hot topic in today’s society. Racism can range from anything to refusing service because of the color of skin, to blatantly killing an African American boy who’s walking down a street with an Arizona Tea and a pack of skittles. Living in a post-Obama administration, Americans believed that this country was finally a post-racist society. However, actions, both consciously and subconsciously, show otherwise. African Americans, or any person of color, have to constantly be on guard against racists acts.
It is not racist because it was progressive at the time of its release, it teaches high school students about the american past, and was written for its time frame.

In the United States of America there has always been a record of systematic racism in the justice system. Some people falsely believe that this systematic racism ended with the civil rights movement, but it has been proven in recent decades that people of colour are still disproportionately incarcerated and harmed by the justice system.

The National Human Rights Commission, a government body that protects that human rights and redresses the grievances commented that “law enforcement machinery is the greatest violator of Dalits’ Human Rights”. The police is responsible for widespread custodial torture and killings of Dalits, sexual harassment and rape of Dalit women and looting of their property. Sometimes police collude with private actors against Dalits. The Dalits students suffer because of the stigma attached to their caste.

Although school was challenging for me, I finally pulled through it and realized I wanted to give my students the opportunities that I never had. Let 's fast forward. I was a freshman in high school. I learned quickly that the person who came up with the saying "High school will be the best years of your life" was wrong.
