How come we don’t get to learn about the $5 Indians? How come history books don’t really say how bad slaves were treated and how bad they were beaten by their slave masters? White America knows what they did and what they did wrong. History classes should teach about whitewashing of American history because it would end misinformation on colonialism, it could end racial inequality, and there would be no more false history. Exposing students to the real Whitewashing of American history impacts the lives of minorities and Native Americans.
Malone attempts a persuasive style of writing but its effectiveness is questionable. He succeeds in creating an argument, but his call-to-action is ineffective. Considering the context, style, and other components, the target audience could not be properly persuaded. Kobutsu Malone’s “Narcissism and Spiritual Materialism: The New Age Legacy” does a dissatisfactory job of persuading its audience, New Age participants, due to his hypocritical ethos, aggressive pathos, and misguided logos. Malone’s main argument, materialistic values are vividly apparent in the New Age, failed to convince readers his opinion should be taken seriously.
The museum was meant to be a place of remembrance, but since it was going to be built on the national mall people saw it only as a symbol of disrespect to the Jewish community. The location was something people found hard to overlook and it caused them to neglect the meaning of the museum. Lawrence Downes expressed his opinion on the Crazy Horse Memorial, “It was bad enough that white men drove the Sioux from the hills they still hold sacred; did they have to carve faces all over them too?” (Source C). The Crazy Horse Memorial is located in the same area as Mt. Rushmore which is a bit ironic considering that it was made to honor Native Americans.
Although all her examples, evidence, and points make her writing more effective it also becomes problematic for other, unintended audience members, and to the way society might begin to portray Millennials. Tyler ends her article by stating that millennials are “intelligent, well-educated and quick to draw remarkably accurate conclusions,” (482) but when she uses words like “deal,” (482) and “prepare” (481) that have negative connotations, it alludes that we are a burden and that people need to be concerned. Not only does she mention Helicopter parents, but she also doesn’t hold the older generation accountable for raising millennials the way they did or still do. The article, although it is well written and makes many frank points that many of us do, becomes problematic when we consider that not all people are the same. Every person is an individual and unique, not only are people individuals, but also in this day and age many people, older and newer generations, do the things that we stereotypically do.
He cites a historian named John Lawson, who talks about Native American folk lore surrounding the arrival of the British Colonists. In my opinion the use of folk lore shouldn’t be used in any evidence-based analysis; It’s unscholarly, and it doesn’t add anything to the conversation. In Allard’s final statement: “Although the fate of the Roanoke colonists may never be known for sure, it is clear that many factors—the difficult sea voyage, lack of supplies, poor relations with the Indians whose support they needed to survive, and the worst drought in 800 years—could have greatly reduced the odds of their survival. But people have overcome even worse odds before. More than four centuries later, the fate of the Lost Colony remains a mystery.” (Allard) He lays out plenty of evidence for both sides and still never draws a definitive conclusion to prove anything; causing the analysis to fall
Some people may say that Antigone chose to die. This is not right because Antigone was not choosing death, she was choosing to be loyal to family. Creon decided to make a law in which Polyneices, Antigone’s brother could not be buried. If someone broke this law they would be stoned to death in public. Antigone did not think it was right, and decided to bury him saying “ But I will bury him; and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down with him in death…”.
Another reason Tejanos were insulted was scholarly historians made them look like the enemy in their writings. For example, Richard Flores said that the social relationship between Anglos and Mexicans were “segregated and prejudicial at the Alamo. He believes that this why Mexican Americans are excluded from Texas history. Richard Flores writes an experience he remembers. After his teacher was done lecturing about
In the same way the students went against dress code, Antigone and the Native American tribes do not follow the law, because the law is going against their personal beliefs. In the beginning of the play “Antigone”, she is talking to Ismene, her sister, about joining her in burying their brother. However, Ismene does not think it is the right thing to do because she believes everyone should follow the laws, no matter what. The author states, “You have made your choice, you can be what you want to be. But I will bury him; and if I must die, 55 I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down With him in death, and I shall be as dear To him as he is to me” (Sophocles 752).
There are direct quotes from her stating that she thought immigrants and African Americans were “‘...human weeds, ' 'reckless breeders, ' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born" (Dew 1). Despite the fact that she did say this, she was not specifically targeting African Americans. Anti-choice fanatics twisted the scenario around to make it so that Sanger seemed to want to wipe out the black population in America entirely. However, Sanger stated her somewhat harsh opinion because she believed that people with a lower intelligence should not be allowed to procreate nor should they be trusted to use birth control correctly. While her true, undistorted opinion doesn’t seem much better, she was not in fact intolerant of African Americans.
Despite Ivan’s failure to efficiently analyze several topics she discusses, such as homophobia, racism, and Texas identification, there are sources that do agree with her stance and provide a more detailed explanation. Ivins first introduces the topic of homophobia through quoting a previous
