I think Justice‘s Harlan‘s predictions that because of the court‘s ruling, society would come to the belief that the two races were not created equal, did come to pass. After the court rejected Plisse‘s argument, more segregation did happen in many areas. The ruling did impact the country in that it allowed segregation to exist in business and public places furthering the idea that one race was inferior to the other. I think the rest of the court ignored his warnings because they didn‘t think prejudice should be regulated by the law. They didn‘t believe that forcing the two races to exist together would overcome racial prejudices and that the 14h Amendment was not created with that intention.
Although there should be policies in place to ensure equal opportunity for all students, regardless of race, affirmative action gives an unfair advantage to students of color, and does not solve the institutional disadvantages that minorities have. Affirmative action is a messy, brute force method of trying to close the enrollment gap. Although on paper it may seem like a good idea to require colleges to admit a certain number of students of color, it actually gives an unfair advantage to minorities. A white student and a student of color with identical grades, test scores, and resumes do not have an equal chance of getting into the same college because one student belongs to a minority. Affirmative action causes the same problem it attempts to solve in reverse.
Racism is a good example of this. One side believes that their own race is better than another person’s or sees other races as inferior. Another side believes that all races should be treated equal because skin tone should not determine how people treat one another. Some do not even acknowledge that racism is a problem at all. All these conflicting views make it hard to come to a solution on how to fix the problem.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once had a dream in which he calls for an end to racism in the U.S. and calls for civil and economic rights. So much has changed since then, but there are still problems that are in the process of being solved. When a person treats a group differently because of that group 's religion, it 's unfair. For a character who has different beliefs, it should not address them the right to criticize another individual. Nowadays, humans judge other humans by the way there features stand out.
In today’s society think about what if equality was not a law and consider what if there was no one to fight for equality in America. If there was no such thing as equality then no race would be equal to another. Also everyone would be treated different and be discriminated by a certain group of race. Not having equality would change the country because there would be no way of life because a certain group would think something is right while another group would disagree with the group's beliefs. This would change history because the leaders would have not say or take action for what they believe in.
This is not true, in which not all African Americans are is trying to cause harm to others just because so they could feel good about themselves, or get their self esteem up. Violence is not the only the answer to get the message out to the world that racism is not okay and it should come to a stop. There are other methods in doing that and at the same time not cause harm to anybody else. For example, trying to create brochures and pamphlets in which people can read and learn off
Using the words “reverse racism” diminishes the real and actual racism that people of color experience, because when a white person is allegedly discriminated upon, whoever the oppressor may be, they will mostly likely not have the power to actively act against them to oppress their rights and liberty in all parts of their life, simply because they are part of the minority group and have the power of a fragile seed compared to that of the dominant culture. Some of you may be thinking, “but the situations mentioned may not be representative of the overall existence of discrimination in
Race is an issue. Our culture tries to pretend that it’s not, but our minds can’t help but compare the people with the stereotypes. It’s easy to identify yourself based on your race, but it’s even easier to pre-judge others. Our race has nothing to do with potential, with success or with what a person is capable of. What can we do to fix this injustice is to raise awareness and give people knowledge that we shouldn 't judge people based on their race.
In my opinion, if I want to judge someone i should try and put myself in their shoes. There are two main reasons why I do that, one It gives me perspective, and two it really lets me know if I should be judging that person. Now I know that no one can really control how they judge people, but we can give them a chance to prove themselves, wither in a good way or a bad way. Going along with what i just said, sometimes people don’t deserve to be judged in a harsh way like we do. You never know you might be judging a homosexual who could become a president, or an important member of the upper class society.
In order for this law to be reinforced, there would have to be some sort of punishment if somebody does not cast their vote (Bargmann).Why should a law abiding citizen be penalized for not wanting to have a say in the way their government is lead? There needs to be a shift in the way elections are held so that voting is more convenient to the average American citizen, and so no one is scrutinized for their choice of not expressing their opinion. Compulsory voting should not be required because it would be violating freedom of choice, which would lead in people casting random votes, and there are superior ways of getting people to vote than forcing them to. Requiring American citizens to vote is a violation of freedom of choice, and the way a person can express their opinion. If they are forced to speak their opinion, they could randomly select a candidate, which would sway the election.
============== Could someone become so used to a certain state of affairs in society—particularly if they happened to be born in it, that they would come to accept it as simply ‘the way things are’ (no matter how detrimental this would be to themselves)? If so, how often is it the case that we or some other group of people could become acclimated to certain standards of treatment in society, regardless of their inherent injustice? And—if so—how often are our most genuine efforts towards ensuring social justice thwarted, not necessarily by our own lack of resources or inability to make change, but by those we try to help assuming no other options for them exist in life? As if their current state of oppression which they accept as normal supplied their whole self concept and all the justifications for why they lead the kind of lives that they do? How does a mythical cop like Skaggs address injustice, when its victims think of it as normal, or even rationalize their participation in
In conclusion, Longtown has showed us that diversity isn’t a bad thing, and judging a person who different than you isn’t doing you any good . How would you feel if you were being judged by your color or the way you look? The world is changing, but racism is not. The fact that racism is still a massive problem around the world, makes it hard to believe that is will ever end. By changing the way we view others, it could change the way others view
Even though it is said that we are a free country, things have still not gotten to the point where everyone is free and equal. McKintosh wants to make a clear understanding to everyone that racism is still there, maybe not as obvious as it was before but the hierarchy is still there putting others at a disadvantage because they were not born with white skin. McKintosh knows that this problem can 't be solved just like that but she wants to raise awareness in order for future generations to be able to set up a system where white people don 't have dominance over colored people. She wants future generations to have a system where everyone is
