This is a perfect example of how German citizens refused to acknowledge the horrible actions against the Jews. In a letter found in one of the camps from an unknown person wrote “...Why can we not cry, why can we not defend ourselves?

King’s attitude towards the sanitation workers was the belief of injustice, other than Memphis not being fair, the unjustness in the news’ failure to report the entirety of the story and instead focusing on the window breaking. In King's speech “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” he states, “That's always the problem with a little violence”, meaning that the more important situation to the movement was not shown but rather a small part that portrayed this as a violent act. King continues, “They very seldom got around to mentioning(...) 1,300 sanitation workers are on strike”, the reason behind not mentioning the strike in the media was to render the deed

A system that is built upon discrimination will continue to discriminate until major interventions are devised and upheld throughout the community (Reskin, 2012). Badger (2016) explains that after recent peaceful protests in Baltimore, the mayor spoke out and blamed “thugs” for these “riots”. The protest aimed to explain citizen’s frustrations with the institutions oppressing them, and exemplify the significance of how interrelated disparities are in communities (Badger, 2012). The mayor failed to acknowledge that we have created slums and prolonged the poverty in these neighborhoods. She ignored that disparities are all connected, such that living in a poor neighborhood typically leads to a poor education, then to a very low level job, and that then inherently lowers their health outcomes (Massey and Denton, 1993).
Usually, reporter will always record tragedy or someone in danger and doesn’t go help, it shows that they didn’t fulfill ethical responsibility. This author illustrates “ Rolf threw down his knapsack and the rest of his equipment and waded into the quagmire, commenting for his assistant 's microphone that it was cold and that one could begin to smell the stench of corpses.” This state that Rolf had fulfill his ethical responsibility because he threw down his equipment, hurriedly ran over to the girl and tried to save her. I believe that others reporter would not of taken actions like he did, instead, they will stand recording the situation. Based on the given statement, I think that Rolf is not an oblivious person, instead, he have altruism. He have showed compassion towards the little girls.
