The textile factories were an unsafe and unheathly place for working class families to work.These factories were unsafe for children to work because the factories would over work the children,give them a insuffient diet and the factories were filled with diseases.For example a testimony from Joesph Hebergram to the Sadler committee he said; ‘i have damged lunges. my lgs muscles do not function properly and will not support the weight of my bones...the doctor told me that it was caused by dust in the factory,from being over worked and a insufficient diet.’this shows that the factories were an unsafe place for working class because they over work their employes and do not give a proper diet.This evidence shows first hand evidence of what happened
However, the series focuses too much on the poverty and crime-ridden neighborhoods and less time on the good neighborhoods. Since Mayor Rahm Emanuel wanted to shut down schools in poor neighborhoods, the opposition agrees that the series must only focus on these neighborhoods. “In 2013, CPS issued a list of 129 schools being considered for closure. Of those 129 schools, Mayor Emanuel closed 54 schools in primarily low-income black and Latino areas in one of the largest mass school closures in history. To protest Emanuel’s action, 7,000 parents, students, and teachers took to the streets in an angry three-day protest.”(Kelly) Teachers that were living in these neighborhoods, such as Roseland, went on strike feuding against Mayor Emanuel, fighting for their schools and it would seemed utmost important to include the majority of this in the documentary.
John had failed a test and his parents took away his phone. His phone kept going off and his mom looked at who it was, and it was Coach. She looked through the messages and saw what was going on between them. John’s mom took it too the school board to get her fired. Knowing what was going to happen, she quit and left town before the meeting happened and didn 't even say goodbye to John.
My cousin now has problems in school, with drugs and the people around him. He has grown to not care for the others the same way his parents never cared for him. What I am trying to say is that it is more of the adults fault for the behavers found in the child. It is said in brain studies that an adolescent’s brain tissue is missing around that age which leads them to make impulsive decisions without reasoning. Know put together the fact that an adolescent has issues and the fact that they can’t reason together.
The considerable differences you would hear about are that the rich white people live in East (which is the nicer area of St. Croix that 's better taken care of), mostly their children populate the pricey private schools, and you 'd only see them in certain areas. We have great respect for each other which is encouraged by the Caribbean hospitality people try to share that is not found stateside. I recall that one of my Muslim and Arabic friends posted on Facebook recently that "After September 11 I didn 't experience anything because Virgin Islanders are nice people & aren 't stupid like white people." He considered all Virgin Islanders to be of one race and the mentioned white people to
Hunt’s Point Ave’s median income is too close to the poverty line which means most people in the town either are not in the labor force or cannot find good paying jobs. On the other end Hunter College is very affluent where the average median household income is $142,156. An interesting data point I saw was in age. Most people living in Hunt’s Point Ave are from 18 to 34 years old at 33 percent of its population while in Hunter College it is only 19.2 percent. Hunter College is a place where people are financially stable and have worked towards their wealth and success as shown also through education meaning people living there are slightly older.
Imagine waking up on a cold floor with one thought in mind for the day, “ how am I going to get food?” Arguably, people who live in poverty who are only worried about food are the lucky ones because they actually have a roof over their heads and are not sleeping on the streets. Living in poverty means that their families have no or very little income and have trouble buying food or even having a place to live. Twenty-One percent of kids in the United States, live in poverty and Ninety-Two percent of that Twenty-One percent will stay there until they are out of their teenage years. (Skinner, 2018 para 6) When teens grow up in poverty, it can have a huge affect on the rest of their life. Statistically, for a teen, living in poverty can have devastating effects, especially if they are black.
For all Americans, the 1930s were dark and difficult times. Following the stock market crash of 1929, the United States entered a long period of economic recession, known as the Great Depression. Although all social groups were affected by this catastrophe, none was as acutely damaged as the African-American population, which had already been facing widespread racial discrimination at that time. At the same time, many basic rights such as black suffrage were incomplete, with laws in many southern states (where the majority of the African-Americans lived) made voting nearly impossible for the vast majority. This caused severe underrepresentation within the U.S. government for African-American and fueled the rampant segregation and racial
Cheez-Its have been banned from the cafeteria. There was an incident at the school with them. A child choked on one and had to go to the Emergency room because there was no air going through her breathing tube. Her face was turning bright red and had to leave immediately. Then a couple days later there was another kid who choked on one also and had to go to the Emergency Room.
Environmental racism Have you ever heard of or considered the concept of environmental racism and what role it plays in the lives of Afro Americans? Well many colored families live in a ring of oil refineries because they have no choice based on their income. Many people such as Henry Clark, who would cover his nose run in his house because of refineries would burn off excess gases sending energy waves and black smoke in the air. This might describe as environmental racism, which is placement of low income or minority communities near pollution sources in hazard environment which can be displayed by the fact that it is detrimental to health, have an impact by income and proximity to pollution. First all, environmental racism is hazardous to health.
