However, it 's not only just because of man-made reasons. The coastal marshes disappearing can also be affected by natural causes. Sediment is being deposited into a river delta increasing the weight, which causes the entire area to sink (p. 11). Depositing may sound like a positive cause, but however if the course of the sediment changes then no new sediment will continue to be deposited. Another natural cause is oceans and hurricanes.
Hurricane Matthew was a big eye opener for me with the way it floods here in Norfolk, seeing pictures of a bridge completely flooded with water. I knew and was told since Norfolk is near the beach and or a water front city it will rain more than being at home which is just surrounded by mountains. The Tidewater area is very flat which is a problem because this is one of the reasons why it tends to flood when having heavy rain showers. Most of the city was said to be built on swamps and streams which helps me understand more why it floods here too. I had also read that the land has slowly been sinking for years now.
The individuals who were being victimized the most and the lack of justice the 1968 Fair Housing Act did were new to me. As stated in the ninth chapter, middle-class African-Americans were the ones being victimized by mob actions. In my mind, every African-American was being victimized. I did not take into consideration that only a select few African-Americans were able to have the opportunity to move into white neighborhoods. These African-Americans could afford the housing since they often had higher occupational and social status than their white counterparts.
The flooding, increase in storm surge, greater salinity of water and warmer temperature of the ocean all negatively effect the make up of the cemetery including everything from the historic coquina stone in the bases of the headstones, to the surfacing of caskets as observed in cities like New Orleans and Springfield South Carolina. The ways of minimizing the damage done to the cemetery are adapting to the effect by attempting to slowdown the rate at which the seas are rising through living shorelines like geotextile bags and oyster shoreline. The living shorelines are short-term like most mechanisms against sea level rise, but are more eco- friendly then the alternative attempt at defense mechanisms. Examples of defenses against sea level rise are armored shorelines as presented at many St. Augustine sites currently as large amounts of concrete or rocks. The most long-term and effective use of energy is retreating, accepting the unavoidable rise of sea level and actively preserving assets accordingly.
The second reason they make, the recent recession having, in most part, significantly negatively affected black families, while benefiting white families to a small degree. Another reason that correlates to the wealth gap Hamilton and Darity claim is the fact that black families are less likely to receive mortgages for purchasing homes, even in cases where black families make significantly more than lower income white families. Now to resolve this Hamilton and Darity say that the public sector must intervene and offer support to black
Jane Addams the founder of the Hull houses is quoted "the streets are inexpressibly dirty, the number of schools inadequate. Sanitary legislation unenforced (PBS.org). These situation are similar to the current state of blacks in America today. The richer White people live in neighborhoods with proper schools and cleaner streets. Mark McQuillan state that “twenty-eight percent of White whom live in major metro areas, live in mostly white suburbs and exurbs (More Live in U.S.
Additionally, the total economic impact is expected to exceed $150 billion. ("11 Facts About Hurricane Katrina") Before the hurricane landed, officials were well-aware of the threat the topography of New Orleans posed to its citizens. Even a former senator, David Vitter (LA), mentioned that a major hurricane smashing New Orleans and flooding the city was not a case of “if” rather “when”. (Glasser, Grunwald) New Orleans is typically described as a “fish bowl” due to the major bodies of water surrounding it and the city being below sea level. This topography increases the city’s vulnerability to floods.
Through the debate Oklahoma debaters frequently remarked how integration was a waste of time using Web DuBois quotes as a proof to deliver ethos. They kept arguing that integration would only cause more problems for African-Americans. They also recognized the White South prejudices and its desperation to keep the status quo in the region. Samantha responded delivering logos in her argument about how the state spent five times more for white schools than black schools. Such unequal spending resulted in poor education for the black minority.
Gallagher article on “Miscounting Race: Explaining Whites’ Misperceptions of Racial Group Size” has a large influence on the medias racial perception, and political identities and racial hypervisibility. In the media “the perception that blacks were overrepresented in the media, particularly on local television news… ” (Gallagher 2014, 42). This relates affects not only one black person in a certain area but everyone in that community. “Misinformation about changing demographic patterns in the United States seem to play a role in the perception of racial group size. What has been lost on the general public is that this great racial sea change wherein whites are no longer a majority will not occur until 2050.” (Gallagher 2014.47) we see how the social imagination affects people in every
They wanted India for its raw materials and was known as the Britishes “jewel in the crown”. From then on, British started setting up rules and regulations for India. The British rule lead an unfair government, poverty to many, millions of deaths, and conflicts with languages. British imperialism had a negative impact on the politics of India because of the unfair ruling/structure for India 's government and the transition between governments. The
