Some people rejected the idea and did not feel it was right to support the Indian Removal Act. But the actions caused by that where very harsh and taken very badly for the Native Americans. Even all the people in the south were for it and it wasn’t even alright for the Native Americans. “The New Echta treaty was used to expel 1,700 Cherokee's from their Southern homelands. In the winter of 1838- 1839, 14,000 sauntered 1.200 miles through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas into Indian land.
Who Killed Reconstruction? “The blacks, as a people, are unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties…..” said a Boston newspaper in 1873 saying that the Africans-Americans were too dumb to be in Congress or any political office. Three years later, was the 100th year anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. With the irony of the election of 1876 had officially crushed the African-American dream. In 1877, the Reconstruction efforts finally ended, so people were wondering who killed Reconstruction.
McCarthyism had a multitude of reasons as to why it turned many Americans against each other after WWII. Within the article, “A Decade of Fear” by Sam Robert, the events leading up to McCarthyism, and events after, are thoroughly explained to showcase the effects on civilization in America. In Robert’s view, “...many Americans were inclined to believe the worst, even without evidence” (9). Joseph McCarthy scared Americans by claiming he knew of 205 Communists working in the State Department after WWII. Later on, he had reported that he only knew of 57 Communists instead of 205, but never publicly released any evidence to back up his claim.
However, the series focuses too much on the poverty and crime-ridden neighborhoods and less time on the good neighborhoods. Since Mayor Rahm Emanuel wanted to shut down schools in poor neighborhoods, the opposition agrees that the series must only focus on these neighborhoods. “In 2013, CPS issued a list of 129 schools being considered for closure. Of those 129 schools, Mayor Emanuel closed 54 schools in primarily low-income black and Latino areas in one of the largest mass school closures in history. To protest Emanuel’s action, 7,000 parents, students, and teachers took to the streets in an angry three-day protest.”(Kelly) Teachers that were living in these neighborhoods, such as Roseland, went on strike feuding against Mayor Emanuel, fighting for their schools and it would seemed utmost important to include the majority of this in the documentary.
Edwin Sutherland Aaron Walker Georgia Gwinnett College Sutherland considered differential association to be a general sociological theory of criminal behavior. Sutherland became suspicious of theories that related poverty to crime, believing that police statistics were biased when they showed that most crimes occurred in poor and lower-class neighborhoods in the city. After 20 years of grueling research, Sutherland finally completed a book reporting his findings. The finalized version of White Collar Crime appeared in 1949; a restored edition was not published until 1983. Sutherland came to believe that numerous factors like race, age, and gender cannot in themselves explain criminal behavior.
They mainly had this riot because of segregation, the enrollment of U.S. Military veteran James Meredith, and the shoot-out they had on campus. First, the University of Mississippi is a very segregated school. It was full of whites that attended that school during the 1960’s. You didn’t even see a black person there. They did not like blacks at all.
Today the Forest Haven remains as a vacant building, abandoned for twenty years, and a government property. The shutdown of the Forest Haven was due to the court order in 1991 on charges of systemic negligence. The author describes the place as an urban exploration is a lark where you still hear echoes of patients, feel thick evening breeze and hear adult contemporary music. This piece of building makes today ruin because it was destroyed by many doctors, nurse who had little ideas about these leftover patients that are classified as mentally retarded or had a dangerous
One historical event we have studied this year was the Montgomery Bus Boycott which began on December 5th 1955 and ended on December 20th 1956 in Montgomery, Alabama. African Americans had been discriminated against since slavery began in 1619, and even after slavery was abolished in 1863, black people still faced extreme racism every day. An example of this is the enforced segregation of public buses. The front section of the buses were for white passengers and the back section was for Black passengers. Although black people made up 70% of the passengers of public buses, if the bus was full and a white person wanted to get on then the black people would have to give up their seats for the whites and stand.
Hundreds of years that Native Americans have been oppressed and ignored, killed and forced onto tiny reservations, being demoted to savages and only half humans, and now they are printed onto football helmets. Most people do not even think of this, today black racism is the largest thing we see circulating the internet along with gender equality. But at least we are going somewhere with that, with things such as black history month, and teaching most kids from a very young age in school about slavery. When is the last time you heard about the reservations that Indians live on now? It is most likely not very recently, because we know that they have been very mistreated in the past, but most seem to think that this is a things of the past, that it isn’t a problem anymore.
Racism is the act of being unjust and being unnecessarily discriminatory towards someone just because of their ancestral roots, the colour of their skin or the language in, which they speak. Racism is a very evident theme continuously throughout the film ‘Remember the Titans’ directed by Boaz Yakin as well as the book ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ written by Harper Lee. The two stories are set approximately 40 years apart in small towns in separate states. To Kill a Mockingbird is narrated by Jean Louise ‘Scout’ Finch whom is a young white girl caught up in a horrible time in US history where African Americans had almost no civil rights. In Remember the Titans however Sheryl Yoast narrates it when integration of schools is a rising matter at the
