To make the situation worse, these cases happen more than often. PBS once reported at the that “White students would nervously ‘snicker’ or ‘turn around and stare’ at the handful of African American students when the word was read aloud.” The novel provides the young white students with racial slurs, at the same time implies to them the language is okay to use. Children nowadays grow up in Hip Pop culture where the “N” word is highly prevalent. They may understand that the word is not good to use, however
The Supreme Court ruled in their favor stating, "segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law; for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the Negro group." However this decision did not suppress the racist ideals of Americans but in fact worsened them. In deep southern states, massive resistance against the new law erupted in protests, riots, and racial violence against the strive for equality. Some public schools even closed their doors rather than integrate and even reacted with
For example, once a Mexican commits a crime and it is seen on the media, the whole image of the Mexican race is spoiled. This leads to society to see every Mexican as a criminal even though they do not know a single thing about the person they are making the assumption about. It could cause people to not associate themselves with any person of the Mexican race. Alton Fitzgerald White, the author of Right Place, Wrong Face, conveys “I had received a standing ovation after portraying the starring role… in the Broadway musical Ragtime. It is a role that requires talent…morals and lessons I learned as a child…The officers told me that they knew exactly who I was, knew I was in Ragtime, and that in fact they already had the men they wanted”.
Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’”(Golding 152). The group Jack managed to control became a mob, so the kids did not have a choice but to follow. This chant, where they scream and mention multiple times in the book shows how heinous humans can be by simply spitting the words killing, cutting, and spilling blood as if it were nothing. The way in which people get too easily influenced is why people nowadays hesitate to stand up for themselves for what is wrong.
City of Maycomb is a cruel and harsh place to live, due to the environment that people are racist and thinks that the white people have more power than the black people.Not getting a full equal right is not fair. During the Tom Robinson’s trial, people only said that he was guilty because he was a black man; while Ewell was white. Many black people has thought that it was unfair to not get equal rights, the white people made something called “separate but equal”. Which is impossible to be. White people thought that giving both of the race a school, but a different school with different supplies and school condition.
There are three major types of injustices and those are Legal,Educational, and Economical. There is lots of injustice in Legal. People will get unfair punishments and trials just because of segregation and racism. The Berry’s were burned as “them white men dragged him and Beacon out of that house, and when old man Berry tried to stop it they it him afire too.”(29) This is injustice because the Berry's got burned because one of them “flirted” with a white women. They could have easily just gone to jail but since they are
Youths who should be in school are handed a gun and taken advantage of. A military commander from Chad boasts, “if you tell them to kill, they kill.” Most people believe that once a child has been forced into war and that there is no way to correct their negative views. Some believe that these damaged, scarred, scared children don’t deserve help or sympathy. Furthermore, many believe that they are evil criminals who deserve to stay in a jail cell, but these children can be reformed and overcome their struggles, even after manipulation and loss. Once a child becomes a soldier, people believe that there is no way to turn their violent views around.
The separating of black and white has caused many problems in society and these inequalities are still felt today. Rebellion, revolution, boycotting and even riots, have led to tensions between the two races. Additionally, desegregating schools led to a learning gap between black and white students. The Constitution states that no state can make the law that takes away the rights and privileges of citizens making them immune to it. Desegregation of public places should be allowed because it is inequitable to separate humans based on the color or pigmentation of their skin.
One of the biggest highlighted event in the movie would be when the white people made separate bathrooms for the black people in their houses. People were disgusted about the idea of having to use the same toilet as a black person because of the “diseases” they carry and wanted seperate bathrooms. This was also just another way that white people to keep blacks under them by making them feel inferior. We also have the case of the segregated buses where the white sit in the front and black sit in the back. At this point of the movie a young black man had gotten shot and the driver boarded the bus to kick off all the black people just by saying “colored people off”.
All animals are to be treated as equals, and no animals shall acquire any human traits or characteristics whatsoever. As soon as the animals come up with the seven commandments, and all of the basic principles, they overthrow all the humans that run the farm. In turn, even though all the animals are suppose to be equal, the pigs begin to take control of all the other animals. Throughout the story the pigs end up breaking all seven commandments, because they were so involved in the power they possessed, they didn’t even realize. The commandments are suppose to be followed by all of the animals at all times.
“They burned down white own tire company that burned on for days and nights, and all you could see was smoke from it all the way in uptown Miami.” (Floyd). “The actions that the National guard did was arrest the rioters.” (Donnie). The Impact it had on the rioters was that the national guard and police arrested 600 people during the riot. “When President Jim Carey came into town when he was on the middle of the speech the rioters were about to start a riot and harm the president”(Donnie). These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop.
In my opinion, if you have to ban a certain type of clothing because people are committing crimes with it then obviously your government isn’t doing something right and needs to be replaced immediately. I also read that the police would wait until the Sailors beat up the Chicanos during the Zoot Suit riots to arrest the Chicanos for fighting instead of both the Sailor and the Chicano. This discrimination and brutality against Chicanos from the Los Angeles police has been going on for a while now and it needs to stop. It’s one of the most disturbing and unheard of parts of history. Douglas Monroy was trying to educate the reader about the tough times of being a Chicano in Los Angeles but in reality he’s just trying to show the tough times for Chicanos overall in
Reconstruction was socially unsuccessful because of the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow Laws, and Segregation. The Ku Klux Klan would threaten, beat, and murder blacks and republicans. They would burn crosses on their raids, and would throw little wooden caskets in the home of the Republican or African American who was being raided. Jim Crow Laws separated the population because, it make it so white people would always have the better out of black people such as, seats on a train, or there American rights would be discriminated on. Jim Crow Laws also made it so blacks would have to go to different schools, different public transportation areas, different schools, and different restaurants.
