I believe that the owners of professional sports teams should not require their players to stand for the National Anthem, but rather that NFL players should be allowed to take a knee or unite arms because this medium of protest is safer than others. These protests are bound to happen either way because of the social forum integrated into the U.S. that encourages the diffusion of these certain mindsets. Recently, there was a protest in Saint Louis regarding the acquittal of Jason Stockley who shot unarmed Anthony Lamar Smith. In the protest, objects, including bricks and broken clay pots, were thrown and resulted in the injury of police officers. Both of these protests plead the same argument, yet the way they are protested lead to totally different
The National Anthem is something many Americans hold dear to their hearts. When football players started to kneel instead of stand with the others as a protest, Americans started to become angry. Football players should stand for the national anthem for the soldiers, to help unify America, and to find another way to protest. First of all, football players should stand for our soldiers. Our soldiers have fought for our country and they fight for our flag.
Recently, there has been much debate over an athlete's right to stand or kneel during the national anthem. The protesting of the national anthem began back in 1968 when two US Olympic track athletes stood during the national anthem with a raised fist to raise awareness of black power during the times of racism and inequality. In Louis Jacobson’s article about the controversy, he stated, “The recent controversy over the national anthem came back up in 2016 when NFL player Colin Kaepernick sat during the anthem before a game.” This problem has filtered down to the high school level. It is against a citizen’s rights to keep him or her from kneeling.
There are many factors that effect Native Americans such as treaty rights, health, education, and economic issues, a number of studies done by various government agencies, including the Department of Justice, have shown extremely troubling rates of violent crime inflicted on American Indian peoples, most by non-Natives, as well as a suicide incidence among American Indian children and young adults that is several times that of other ethnic groups or the general population. However, Native Americans representation through mascots and logos is an issue that effects the Native people in a more personal way. Native Americans sport team logos, mascots and nicknames are representing Native Americans in a disrespectful way which is effecting the way we perceive
There are many ways The Boy on the Wooden Box relates to the article “A Brief Holocaust Summary.” It was produced by Maya Productions. For those who may not fully understand what the Holocaust was about, the article “A Brief Holocaust Summary” can give the person a clue of wha t was really happened. The Holocaust is generally thought of as the genocide of roughly 6 million Jewish people during World War II.”
In relationships, especially in interracial ones, it's one thing to experiment or to get a quick-fix, but it's quite a different story when dealing with actual marriage. Marriage is a sanctity that should not be messed around with, given its status as being one of the only cultural universal social institutions around. However, humans are born as curious creatures, which helps them evolve by breaking out from the constraints of the media and of society. When racial division is involved, the issue of curiosity is illuminated. In Spike Lee's 1991 movie, Jungle Fever, there are many characters who explain this curiosity phenomenon through their actions, and there's one in particular who is practically the epitome of racial division.
Steven Sternberg Mrs. Burns English 1 CP 1 March, 2018 The Flag Protest “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color” (Kaepernick, Colin). The flag protest has been a protest existing for a long time but, recently sparked lots of controversy. Although kneeling during the national anthem may seem disrespectful are often seen as a disrespect to the flag and troops, a inefficient way to promote a cause, and anger many people in shows division in the country, it can show that the ideals of freedom is justified, it generates conversation and awareness about topic, and is a legal form of peaceful protest.
In Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, he does not just use logic, he also uses emotion. When King was giving his speech, not a lot of people were there to hear him in person. King’s speech was not extremely famous when he first gave it; it was not until later that it became known. If he were to just use one, logic or emotion, people would listen but not continue supporting him for long. When using logic and emotion people, will hear him out and understand he means what he says and that he has examples to back up what he includes in his speech.
Pedagogy is a Weird Word (An Analysis on Whitman’s Pedagogy) The definition of a pedagogy is “the method and practice of teaching…” Walt Whitman, a well known writer in the 19th century, had an interesting way of teaching the people around him. He influenced his peers, and created new methods of writing poetry.
Is using Native Americans as mascots for sports teams offensive? It does not matter if it is a high school or a college, sometimes even the NFL. Examples of sports teams that use Native Americans images are Washington Redskins, Florida State Seminoles, and a high school Cherokee Braves. It is not offending and there should not be any problem because it is not making fun of anybody. Using Native American images and names in professional, collegiate, and high schools sport teams does not reinforce and perpetuate stereotypes because it symbolizes their culture, shows that they are ready to play, and appreciates their coexistence.
In the option essay of “The Trouble with Online Education” Mark Edmundson started with question about what people are thinking that the lawyers learn from their clients and the patient's teaches the doctor about the medicine. He also talk about how the teacher are also need to learn from the students and how they can improve their teaching so it would be best fit for all the students in the classroom. He talk about how a president was dismissed because she was not moving forward fast enough on the internet learning. He gave himself and his student as an example of how the teacher should learned from the students and at the same time the students also learn from the teacher. Edmundson also compare the online teacher to a school teacher.
Asked to research and observe an example of a fallacy, I chose a topic that can be argued from both sides also a currently rather popular subject in our nation. Not only is this topic causing a large amount of controversy, it also seems to be bringing out the ignorance in some while others are only peacefully protesting what is considered important to them. This fallacy being rather NFL players kneeling during the national anthem is disrespectful or not. In my opinion, I suppose this subject commits the fallacy bandwagon fallacy. This fallacy means a concept is considered to be true since plenty of people believe it is true.
