America was tuning into the disgust of the Japanese through propaganda. Posters indicated the horror in Southeast Asia, depicting Japanese soldiers beating and murdering Americans (Document B).

. .” (15) As soon as Lavender falls, they all seem to go berserk. It almost seems that, due to his death, Lavender’s comrades are moved with intense sadness and rage, causing them to wreck havoc across Vietnam. This would be a completely response for any soldier—but it’s not the text’s deepest meaning. If readers take one step further, they might discover that the driving cause of these postmortem actions was not Lavender’s death.
Author Stephen Crane uses symbolism, imagery, and personification to depict the brutality of the war and how foolish Collins’ decision was. The water Collins retrieves is symbolic of his act of heroism and how he turned his back on the war to help a dying comrade. Imagery is used to illustrate how terrible the war was. This makes Collins decision seem even more ludacris to the readers. Finally, personification is used to show how the soldiers hid the horrors of the war and turned them into a more familiar sound like arguing.
Images and video of Eric Garner’s murder by police generated outrage and protests across the nation. Many wept for the loss of this innocent, but for Black America, it was just another offense in a long series of transgressions against the black body. To them, the pain was familiar—they had known it by many names: slavery, Jim Crow, mass incarceration. Police brutality was nothing new. This situation was different, however.
The media of the time picked up the story and sensationalized the event by using highly prejudicial biased propaganda. Terms such as “The Guilty, Guilty, murd’rer walks abroad… MURD’RER !” (Frederick 4.2). The soldiers involved were tried and convicted; however, only given token punishments (Brinkley 97). This propaganda did not address the rational or evaluate the justification for the killing of the five that perished in the event. The purpose of this article was to incite the masses and further shift the opinions of the populous.

Andrew Jackson: A Monster Some may think that Andrew Jackson was a hero, but his horrific actions during his time as president, prove otherwise. While he was president, he did many things that made a negative impact to our country. Nobody should forget these things, for they are what make him a monster. Those things include, The Trail of Tears, the fact that he enjoyed violence, and that he was a murderer. To begin, Andrew Jackson was the reason that so many Indians had to leave their homes.
Many actions played out during the Holocaust and World War II were not humane, and still remind us like a scream behind closed doors: hidden but still heard. While hearing the horrid stories and seeing the ghoulish photos of times not to be forgotten, we see the tragedy that is the mistreatment of human lives. Our identities are lost little by little, but those victims had theirs ripped from their bodies. After losing everything and then becoming a nearly empty vessel, it is amazing that we attempt to comprehend the cruelty of the Holocaust. The loss of identity and self might have started with Adolf Hitler’s reign, for the Holocaust legacies, but we are all losing bits of ourselves constantly.
Our exhibit contrasts what is seen in the daylight – the ignorance and secrecy of peace after the war – and what is concealed in the night – a terrible, criminal act against millions of innocent people, disguised as part of the “Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification department”. We present the audience with images, records, and information that bring vivid reality, and significance to an event that is often overlooked and dismissed. The United States and Japan want to turn a blind eye to a horrific human rights violation, the torture and death of a quarter million innocent people. Publicizing Unit 731 will help to memorialize the sacrifices made by those who suffered under General Ishii. As long as people keep retelling the story their loss will never be forgotten.
Walter Dean Myers once stated that “One of the lessons learned during the Vietnam War was that the depiction of wounded soldiers, of coffins stacked higher than their living guards, had a negative effect on the viewing public. The military in Iraq specifically banned the photographing of wounded soldiers and coffins, thus sanitizing this terrible and bloody conflict.” The Vietnam War, fought in 1955 to 1975, was the longest war in American history. This war was a conflict between the Communist North Vietnam and its ally Viet Cong, and South Vietnam and its ally the United States. During the Vietnam war, tensions in the United States were extremely high. Increasing opposition to the war was causing major division amongst the American people, and many feared that Vietnam could potentially see a victory.
Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims. This strategy makes us think about how terrible those the things they did are now and how it would be front page news if any of those things happened to any person nowadays. Once our emotions are conjured up and in tune, us as readers are more likely to agree with what the authors have to say. If Levitt and Dubner did not want us to
The misuse of authority by police officers in the murders of Michael Brown and Eric Garner as well as the negative view society holds for African Americans, gave Dylann Roof and still gives other people like him the idea that it is possible to get away with murdering minorities. These societal judgments and misconduct by authority figures are what caused Dylann Roof to go to the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC and shoot nine innocent people. Roof’s deep-rooted racist views and a culture that supported these views led to the deaths of Reverend Clementa Pinckney, Tywanzza Sanders, Reverend Sharonda Singleton, Cynthia Hurd, Reverend DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Ethel Lance, Susie Jackson, Myra Thompson, and Reverend Daniel Simmons
Someone once said, “ Mr. Brady has done something to bring home to us the terrible reality and earnestness [sic] of war. If he has not brought bodies and laid them in our dooryards and along streets, he has done something very like it," ("Matthew Brady Photographer."). The photos showed truth and reality about war. It took away any fantasies about it. Many people would go and see the art galleries.
