The confederate flag was banned due to people finding it offensive. The government did not like the fact that it was a rebel banner. The citizens did not like it because it displayed rebellion of the war that had happened during the Civil War. - they think no one was showing respect for the veterans that were in the war. Another reason that the confederate was banned is because people thought it was a rebellious flag.
Timeline Project The first point on my timeline is of two gravestones. They’re Maggie Mae’s (the main character) parent’s gravestones, to be exact. They died when she was just three years old. This point happened fifteen years before the novel began. Due to her parents dying and having no other family members around, Maggie Mae was put in the foster system.
This is the big question of all to me about segregation, if segregation stops then how will the country be. Also how would others react to this conflict not just in the United States but out of the whole world with having segregation.”Sports today does not have many problems with racism but back in the past there were a lot and it was terrible on how they treated african-americans that knew how to play.” (Monika Stodolska, Kimberly Shinew, Myron Floyd, and Gordon Walker)This statement disturbs me when I read it because our African Americans could not play sports that they are good at jus because of their
Blacks were consistently denied their deserved voting rights due to reading tests. Some Social Darwinists believed that it was lawful and proper for all these injustices to occur because some nations had the right to command and control “lesser people”. Even some presidents of the time would not look into the issue and avoided talk about elevated levels of racism and nativism. Minorities and the inequality they saw everyday was extraordinarily jarring and still visible
Today, you can see that many discrimination towards African American peoples were not resolved because people realize, there was racism occurring in their society, but other societies might disagree. In the article, “No Such Place as ‘Post- Racial America”, by TOURE, describes how she begs the peoples of calling America ‘post racial’ because it is not. Race is
One of the problems with the New Deal was that it didn’t support minorities nearly enough, which is shown in both Document B: African Americans and the New Deal, and Document G: Whither the American Indian?. In Document G, it is stated that the New Deal did very little to support civil rights, most new deal programs discriminating against blacks. Document G shows that there was unfair treatment toward American Indians with New Deal programs, as most programs gave no benefits to Indians, but still negatively affected them in some ways, such as with their housing difficulty. Both of these documents show that if anything should be changed about the New Deal, it’s the way it affects minorities. There are also some citizens who believe the New Deal isn’t dealing with the Depression, as shown in Document F: Song.
Many people did not have the courage to go up to someone and discuss women’s rights, and if they did the people usually turned down the idea. After the war people started to change their minds about slavery and let go of their slaves (document 5). This caused another problem, African Americans wanted equal rights, but white people still looked down at them. Over all the revolutionary
For instance, the book does not explain the rational reasons that led towards the iron-fist leadership by the Nation of Islam. It also fails to appreciate effectively the angst of Elijah Muhammad as a conscious Black person who experienced the brutalities of a white-led society. In undertaking such a safe stance, most readers become less conscious of the evil of racism in the American society. The assumption that history of objective has always proven faulty, as it ignores that the emphasis on one part of history against the other also sustains
White and blacks are not friends because of segregation. Papa is telling Stacey about why blacks are not friends with whites " 'Far as I 'm concerned, friendship between black and whites don 't mean that much ' cause it usually ain 't on a equal basis. Right now you and Jeremy might get along fine, but in a few years he 'll think of himself as a man but you 'll probably still be a boy to him, and if he feels that way, he 'll turn on you in a minute ' " (Taylor 157). This shows that blacks could not be friends with whites. Good friendship is hard to find.
