Throughout his essay called, Why I Write, Orwell uses different strategies to get to his audience such as, persona, diction, cumulative sentences. With the use of these strategies, Orwell is able to give more meaning to his essay to help the reader understand, furthermore, his writing. The most successful strategy that Orwell uses throughout his whole essay is diction. By the use of diction, Orwell is able to persuade his readers more about why he writes. In his essay he first started off by saying, “From a very early age, perhaps the age of five and six, I knew that when I grew up I should be a writer.
When Martin Luther protested an fought for the right of the colored people he did in a nonviolent way but the rulers did not use the same method. According to the article Selma to Montgomery March “The marchers didn’t get far before Alabama state troopers wielding whips, nightsticks and tear gas rushed the group at the Edmund Pettis Bridge and beat them back to Selma.” The ruled risk getting punished harshly but that doesn’t take away their responsibility. It is the citizens duty to create a safe and equal environment for everyone. “You are our sovereign, our Government, only so long as we consider ourselves your subjects” (pg.176). Citizens can’t be managed by the rulers in everything they do.
He should have organized student protest groups and started a local movement in his community, that lets people know that the mistreatment of black people will not be tolerated under any circumstances. During this time I do not think that there was any type of radical group the challenged law enforcement and society to have better race relations, there should have been a group formed back then like “The Black Panthers” (2015 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) . As this would have been the only way to for black people to have a voice that strictly represented them for all causes at all times. Though I do not support the violence that “The Black Panthers” displayed, I do support their ideology that there must be someone else other than the local law enforcement to oversee the treatment of blacks by
"If they make the Ku Klux Klan nonviolent, I'll be nonviolent. ... But as long as you've got somebody else not being nonviolent, I don't want anybody coming to me talking any kind of nonviolent talk." He noted that there is no point if only a group of people who is trying hard to become nonviolence, but on the other hand, there were also another group of people who do violence and this is where the topic of justice comes along and according to him, if the Whites are using violence, therefore, the Blacks also need to use violence. At the outset, I did not somehow agree with his judgement but as I go along, I really managed to read what he really stands for.
Many people presume that Malcolm hated and threatened Caucasian Americans constantly when advocating every African American should go out and arm themselves, form militias of their own. In an interview, however he defines himself stating "No, I said this: That in areas of this country where the government has proven its--either its inability or its unwillingness to protect the lives and property of our people, then it’s only fair to expect us to do whatever is necessary to protect ourselves". He later goes on and says he respects government and laws as well as " I’m not advocating the breaking of any laws. But I say that our people will never be respected as human beings until we react as other normal, intelligent human beings do. And this country came into existence by people who were tired of tyranny and oppression and exploitation and the brutality that was being inflicted upon them by powers higher than they, and I think that it is only fair to expect us, sooner or later, to do likewise."
I agree with Jackie Robinsons method of civil disobedience even though he knows he can never be non-violent. I do not agree with Malcolm X and the nation of Islam approach because it is more violent and aggressive even though they do not want to live together with whites. I believe that the civil rights movement was about making a change for African Americans and the only way to make a change is through nonviolent acts. The civil rights movement was to make a change and Malcolm X and the nation of Islam's approach would have caused more problems than solved any for African Americans. Malcolm X believed that blacks should live separately from white's and he called it separation.
Paine especially believed in women’s rights. He believed that women should have the same equal rights as any other man. Though he did not express it publicly due to the fears that bringing up the subject will derail the main purpose of his pursuits. Drawing attention away from his main goal to restructure the government to pursue women’s rights was not what he necessarily wanted at that moment. He had to get the people to agree with his major ideas before promoting women’s rights.
Another event that changed civil rights is that they kept African Americans from illegal drugs. To repeat, the NAACP wanted to make America for real Americans: and make sure that lynching and segregation were not part of it. (naacp.org) Members helped to organize events for racial discrimination and helped the United States to realize they needed to pass a bill to end segregation. For the most part, the NAACP has worked hard to change civil rights and how people were being
Even if young people can obtain alcohol, does that mean our system shouldn’t try to restrict it at all and provide it freely? Likewise with plea bargaining, even if in cases such as Alaska, prosecutors found loopholes against abolition, does that mean the US should make no attempt at restricting wrongful convictions and racial inequality? Littering, human trafficking, murder, theft, and discrimination are all aspects of human life that can’t be eliminated entirely; however, the United States still seeks to prevent them through legislation and law
Many may question the idea that a law is unjust if it is inflicted on a mass population who had no part in enacting and devising the law. In the United States, citizens would consider that predicament as a violation of democracy. However, many minorities, particular black American were inflicted by laws that were passed without a fair consensus due to simulations that limited their rights as American citizens. As a result, many black Americans risk their lives fighting for justice for the black community. Although it is one’s moral obligation to abide by the laws for the sake of humanity and harmony amongst the nation, it is unconstitutional to not hold all accountable to the same standards of this nation’s constitution.
These three civil court cases were not the only experiences that influenced the Civil Rights Movement, yet they were important because they were giving more reasons and proof of why desegregation needed to be enacted: Shelley v. Kraemer, Brown v. Board of Education, Loving v. Virginia. White people do not have the right to decide whether African Americans are allowed to live in their neighborhood, as shown in the case Shelley v. Kraemer. Also, white people are not allowed to segregate certain schools so that African Americans can not go to them or decide that African Americans can not marry white people, such as in the cases Brown v. Board of Education and Loving v. Virginia. All of these cases are supported by the 14th amendment, which guarantees that all people are equal. “This nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds.
However, in realization, there is no training program that can automatically change one’s attitudes and views, but the appropriate education and training, coupled with effective monitoring and enforcement strategies, can help encourage positive behavior from law enforcement officers, another problem is how minorities groups are discriminated- officers target minorities for traffic stops for an arrest of minorities, lack of understanding of diverse culture with the lack of established policies that support diverse policing and disrespect human rights (King, 2014) and diversity is critical to the recruiting mission, and an agency must be aggressive in their hiring practices, as every agency is looking to have a police force reflective of their respective communities. Have feelers out in the community and use community members on hiring interview boards. This increases buy-in and demonstrates an agency’s commitment to the community. Recruit and select officers who identify and bond with the agency culture (organizational fit), who are compatible with and capable of achieving organizational goals, and who understand community demographics. If officers bond with the agency and the community, they are more likely to be effective and maintain
He continued to prevent and investigate lynchings in this position. Unfortunately, even with the support of Eleanor Roosevelt, he could not institute an anti-lynching law (Walter White Biography 3). White continued to fight for racial equality by directing NAACP to use legal channels to help stop segregation. One of Walter 's biggest impacts for the civil rights movement was his ability to sway presidents decisions. He encouraged President Franklin Roosevelt to issue 1941 's Fair Employment Practices executive order.
Unit 1: Activity 2: Assignment 2: Journal As an individual amongst many other students, we all have our own ideas and opinions. This is what makes us different from each other and also similar in many cases. With the diversity of opinions they often depict our relationship with others and who we are compatible with. From my experience, having a different opinion about something out of the majority is not necessarily a negative thing. The people I usually hang out with are understanding and may oppose my opinion with other reasoning why my opinion may be incorrect or not as good.
Head of the National Association of Police Organizations, William Johnson, blames President Obama for a “war on cops.” Blaming the head of our nation for civil right action is not something that can be agreed with. Yes our nation’s leader is an African American and though he cannot voice an opinion, it 's safe to say Obama may have a non-broadcasted opinion. While races came together for prayer in Dallas, protests in other places lead to violence. Many races are coming together to help put light on the situation, but there are still some that believe in the violent approaches. The wrong lesson to take out of this is to believe Black Lives Matter without thinking that blue lives matter, too.
