This article confirm that the media was portraying anti Mexican feelings, tried to bash Mexican Americans by using derogatory names, and made it seem like the strike wasn 't violent. The media had heavy impact to what they were informing readers, and the media misinformed their audience allowing the Mexican American community to face the repercussions. The Mexican American culture and integrity was demolished because the media were unbiased, subjective, money based organizations. The media allowed injustice acts occur in front of them, and advertised this discrimination to make economic profit. So the media is often accused guilty for enhancing the Zoot Suit
The border has always been seen as an evil place to go through because the way people were treated there; and still do to this day. Mexicans were unfairly and brutally deported, taken away for good. The border was not only to protect the bad from coming in because the bad started being Mexicans after the great Depression was blamed on
A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it. Bob Ewell, Mayella’s dad, the person who should be protecting her at all costs. The most common injustice in the novel appears when the kids find the case between Tom Robinson and the Ewell family to be unfair, highly illogical, and racist. When the verdict of guilty is revealed to the town, Jem becomes upset and says, “You just can’t convict a man on evidence like that- you can’t”
This is an example of satire because the administration only wants a Mexican type to make it seem as though everyone is being represented. When the Mexican-American come on and says his political speech it is both ironic and satirical. During the speech he say how the problems of Mexicans stem form them being stupid and uneducated, while at the end he goes out of control showing his patriotism for America. I believe that's the whole speech is ironic and satirical because a Mexican is saying that other Mexicans are uneducated. There is also the fact that the Mexican-American says that for a Mexican to be better he needs to think American when some Americans
Spike Lee’s films never fail to spark controversy in the filmgoing world due to constantly dealing with the delicate topic of race and by clearly portraying his pro-black view of the topic. His films point out the corruption of our world and realize the separation of our society, especially in the black culture. In his classic film, Do the Right Thing, he reveals the struggles of an interracial community that doesn 't get along with each other. The climax of the film is undoubtedly when Sal’s famous Pizzeria is vandalized and burned by the community after the police kill Radio Raham because of an aggressive confrontation in his shop.

MLK Jr. in this speech tells his audience of the grave injustice that is happening all around him. Instead of involving himself in a violent movement to stir up large amounts of hate, he instead leads a nonviolent movement where he and his followers protest nonviolently in the streets and local shops. They were bombarded by water hoses and attack dogs because of their protest, but continued to press on regardless of the peril that they put themselves in. They were fighting, in MLK Jr.’s mind, an “illegal unconstitutional junction” that the government had set up to persecute the black community in America (MLK Jr. 216). He compares their situation to Jesus’ parable of the good Samaritan, where the Samaritan was not expected to help the dying man out, but did so anyways out of the compassion in his heart, spending his own money to put the man into a good inn.

He is said to be the son of Cain and because of that he was labeled from day one (Sanchez). It could be argued that he kills people who are at the hall because they are all having fun and socializing, but he isn’t able to do that so he punishes those who can. Readers see both sides of Grendel in his backstory because he is evil, but he is not evil for no reason, like
Enrique comes across discrimination many times during the book, like the time he was beaten by six men on top of the train. They were angry that these people were coming through their country to get a better life, but in reality they are just jealous of what they are trying to achieve for their family, "This is what they get for doing this journey" (Nazario 47). Adan diaz ruiz mayor of San pedro Tapanatepec is talking in this quote basically saying that he does not approve of immigrants from the south of mexico. Just like how many other people in mexico think of immigrants. They also believe this in the capital of Mexico, Mexico City.

Interventionism is not so far off from something like the tyrannical nature of bullies around the middle school playgrounds of the United States, poking around in other people’s business, reminiscent of authoritarian leaders of the past. Democracy spreading in the Middle East is counterintuitive and according to Mike, it does no benefits to intervene any longer. He believes that intervening in other countries problems, motivates a sensitive group, the Muslims all around the globe, into triggering unfortunate actions like shooting up a nightclub. Why he believes this concept, is explained through six notions; U.S. support of Israel, support of dictatorship in the Middle East, inhabiting of the Arabian Peninsula, Israelis escalating, reliance on inexpensive oil, military presence in other countries in the “Muslim world”, and lastly, our unfair disposition to categorize as terrorist, any Muslim population that one of our allies (Russia or China) dislikes. Above all else, the self-appointed duty of America, as the democratic police of the world, has ironically become our Achilles
He says they are rude, tribal, and they seclude themselves because of these courses. These people feel like Mexicans should go back to their country, because they feel like the classes are teaching students to be Anti-American. b.) The real reason is just plain racism. I feel like they are making up excuses because they don’t want the Mexican-American community to stand up for themselves.
When the the Persian Gulf War was going on it was obvious that Bin Laden hated americans. In this interview he said “Every Muslim the minute he can start differentiating, carries hate towards Americans, Jews and Christians, this is part of our ideology. Ever since I can recall, I felt at war with the Americans and had feelings of animosity and hate towards them,”. He became mentally sick after the Persian Gulf War which made him angry and grudgeful which made him plan 911 to kill americans( Jonathan Mahler 1). Some say that Bin Laden was a good man and others say that he was a horrible man.

All of the immigrants were scared, they thought they were going to be killed in Mexico by the Mexican authorities.
