Much of the damage they did was to scare blacks into accepting that they were hated and even though they had legal rights, they should not use them or practice them. The KKK scared black people away from rights like voting, freedom of speech and leadership positions. One example of how the KKK scared blacks from practicing their rights was “in 1964 when a bomb planted by the Klan killed 1 black person registering to vote and 2 white northern supporters helping people register.” (History.com). Another time was when Viola Lee Liuzzo was killed for driving and organizing freedom marches and speaking out. The hate Klan used violence to control the people who believed in equal rights.

Experts argue that cultural biases and stereotypes have been reflected through the increasing number of incidents of Caucasian law enforcement abuse towards African Americans. Examples of this are the killings of African Americans which occurred in Ferguson and Baltimore. A peer-reviewed New York Times article entitled “What Happened in Ferguson?” discussed the death of Ferguson resident Michael Brown. Brown, an unarmed black teenager, robbed a convenience store of its cigars minutes before being fatally wounded and shot an additional six times by young white police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri during August of 2014 (Buchanan et al. 2).
In a case study called “Vulnerable Populations” Dr. Richard Zoraster (2010) mentions “Hurricane Katrina demonstrated many of the risk within the United States. These factors include poverty, home ownership, poor English, ethnic minorities, immigrant status and high density housing”. Social vulnerable populations are at risk during a disaster because of their socio-economic standing. Lack of money and transportation hindered their attempts to evacuate. Furthermore, a large number of residents did not trust the local authorities and refused to evacuate.
And this is a great example of symbolism. Mr.Twain represents Mr. Sherburn and the mob is the rest of the audience who is hateful and bigoted and also that deny the African American people to receive equal rights. And through Symbolism we see that Mr.Sherburn is right about the mob and their lack of courage. He explains how all of them are pitiful and how they are all cowards. And this is true for them and the people in real life who hunt, mistreat, and even kill African American people they are all cowards, they don’t have honor.
He also displayed a detrimental fixed mindset regarding his unfortunate circumstances as evidenced by his “Fuck God “comment when he pondered the sad state of his reality in West Baltimore. The contradictory, but well intentioned advice from his brother, Tony, failed to resonate because he, himself, was a drug dealer and their mother, while having the best of intentions, thought the best way to solve their problem was by constantly changing locations, which did Wes no favors in my opinion, because as Author Wes states, “the hood comes in different shapes and sizes” (Moore 97) Ironically, Other Wes found trouble no matter how hard his mother literally tried to remove him from it. Wes’ problems compounded due to a criminal background, 4 kids to feed and mounting financial pressures from his family. His desperate circumstances led him to commit a fatal robbery, which he, along with his brother, Tony, and two others were charged and subsequently convicted of. During a conversation between him and Author Wes Moore in prison, where he serves a life sentence, Other Wes Moore once again displays the fixed mindset that permeated throughout his youth and now into adulthood with this statement; he says: “We will do what is expected of us, if they expect us to graduate, we will graduate.
Black and white people and colored people did not get along well at all. There were riots and destruction of property that caused uproar in government. When the mayor finally turns to color, so does the whole town. This was the end result of the social
For high schools specifically, attendance is a serious issue. Students would be less reluctant to go to school if either a Friday or Monday was omitted from the school week. Because of this, students might have an improved attitude at school, which could lead to less violence. Going to school one less day per week would also conserve energy and save money for the school. For students whose parent or guardian drives them to and from school, driving to and from school one less time during the week would save them gas.
Customers died, which means that their debt did not get paid back, so it hurt the financial lenders. Guilds died or lost their craftsmen and could not replace them, so the public was out a lot of specialty services that they needed done. With all of the dying public this means that the demand for goods went down and the supply went up, so there was an oversupply of goods with no one to buy them, therefore, the prices were chopped. Along with all of these aspects of society falling apart, there were many groups in society causing issues. One group, the Flagellants, caused a huge uproar amongst the public.
Instances such as the Freedom Summer, and the Freedom Riders protests were met with deadly consequences as local police alongside with the likes of the Ku Klux Klan carried out false arrests, fatal beatings, instances of arson, and even murder. Naturally as a response to such atrocities, activists sought out differing methods of resolution; many followed the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr., whilst others preferred more violent and radical measures such as that of the Black Panthers organization, of which alongside that of police resistance delayed the advent of the Civil Rights Act as the two parties and other similar counterparts would conflict with the idea of harmony or equality and instead would perpetuate the cycle of civil unrest between law enforcement and that of the general public for generations to come. Since that of the Civil Rights Movement, society as a whole changed. Diversity upon the United States flourished as citizens from various nationalities were now prohibited from being discriminated upon solely on the color of their skin. However like that of society, so did law enforcement change, and with the arms industry following suite, thusly setting
These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop. All of those events lead up to the city realizing what damage they did to the community. During the time when Arthur McDuffie was beat to his death by Dade county police officers, an event of riots broke out in Dade county, these deadly events created very bad damage to the black community and caused more racial conflict in the community. In the future of the topic there would still be police brutality and killings of blacks by law enforcements. As you can see the incident that happened in Baltimore recently.
On August 9, 2014 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson. Crowds soon formed as the word of what happened travel across the world. This is like the shot her around the world in the American Civil War. With racial tension in America already at a high point, this event was a breaking point. Thinking back to the Civil Rights movement that went on for fifteen years this tragic event can be compared to that.
Police brutality and racial profiling against has became a huge problem in America. In 2016 more than 250 african americans were killed by police officers. Two thousand and fifteen an estimate of 306 blacks were killed. Mainly our african american men have been killed innocently by an officer because the color of his skin. According to the guardians who track police killings the police have killed at least 258 black people.
Broken lives, chained minds, and a deceitful government left a shadow of oppression over both the society in Anthem and the society in Stung. Although not always aware, the leaders of the society had beaten the minds of the people and mutilated their freedom. Just as in Anthem, the sorrow felt by the people in Stung was a result of tragedy onset by the government. In Anthem they had reverted back to the beginning and left behind all the advancement from the unmentionable times. The leaders of their societies not only took away the freedom to be yourself as an individual they smothered any spark of imagination.
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).
