The film begins after the gruesome Los Angeles Riots of 1992. The riots cause an uproar of gangs within the school along with beginning an integration program at the high-achieving Wilson High. After the integration program was set in place many white kids begin to leave the school, leaving the “dumb” integrated kids. Being that many of the teachers are white, a majority are against the integration program. And the white teachers believe that the diverse kids left were “unteachable and at-risk kids” until a young teacher started at Woodrow High.
Little Rock’s Nine biggest supernatural force was racism. Every day the students were faced with violence, people would throw stones at them, sometimes white students would knock them out. Police officers from Arkansas who acted as escorts would do little to protect the nine students against angry mobs. As well Little Rock Nine had good forces, as Elizabeth sat on a bench surrounded by white mobs, an educator reporter who told her “Don’t let them see you cry” (Fitzgerald 13) and a white woman who screamed at the crowd to “leave the child alone and stop tormenting her” (Fitzgerald 13) sat at each side of Elizabeth to offer her comfort and protection. Similarly, an epic event has villains.
Over the course of the next couple days, the organized demonstrations gave way to campus wide chaos. Until, Mayor Leroy Satrom made a request to Governor James Rhodes for National Guard troops to quell the protesters. Subsequently, the crowd remained determined and began to confront the guardsmen, leading the situation to spiral out of control. In response, the guardsmen began firing shots at the crowd, shortly after noon on Monday, May 4, killing four and wounding nine (Kent state
Civil disobedience comes in many forms, varying from boycotts to school walkouts. One of the most well known forms of civil disobedience in American history is the Montgomery Bus Boycott, taking place in a segregated Alabama. Rosa Parks, amongst dozens of other outspoken African Americans, led a movement in Montgomery which had tens of thousands of African Americans stop riding the bus. This event led to the creation of the MIA, or the Montgomery Improvement Association. This hurt the bussing companies but not the African Americans, which created carpools and taxis to get around.
Today, no one is discriminated in a way like they was back then. In the 1950’s several things have happened to cause such uproar in several places in the Unites States. Such as the murder of Emmett Till in 1955, African Americans in Boston-Rouge boycott segregated city buses in 1953, and Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat and was arrested in 1955.The Montgomery Bus Boycott (December 1, 1955-Decemeber 30, 1956) succeed because most of the people who rode the bus were African American and when the boycott happened, no one was hardly on the bus and they lost business. MLK and his followers had a ‘’peaceful’’ boycott without violence. Also, there were many people who had helped transfer the African American to the places that they need to be.
When different races are referring to an African American as an –N- word, that would automatically start controversy and it could end violent. Even in the school system of all grades the –N- word has caused altercations and diversity among the students. I remember when I was growing up the –N- word was a curse word and I could not ever use it. The one’s who get offended the most are the senior citizens, parents, but overall the elderly.
Discrimination the way black people were affected by. Black people were physically abused by white people.They were abused because the white people thought they were different because they were black.In the book, Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry Mr.Sims throws Stacey off the sidewalk.This action showed that white people did not like black people. The kids had limits for educational opportunities.They had limited educational opportunities because white people thought they were not that important so black people have fewer school supplies but the white people have a lot of opportunities.In the book roll of thunder Little man opened the book and saw a something that was racist and he threw the book on the floor.So we know why and it is because the
This lasted a year about and (381) days. This made the bus company lose a lot of money.They did this to advocate civil rights. It was a form of peaceful protest. Because of the bus laws Rosa Parks was arrested and it sparked into a full on boycott.
When the races joined within the school, parents stood outside to protest (hate). The head coach of the football team didn’t trust the head coach from the black school to become head coach. He gave him a hard time, but they eventually decided to separately coach the defense and offense. (prejudism) Another example was when a few kids threw a brick into Coach Boon’s window. (violence.)
In the article, the author avers that “Administrators at Utica College in upstate New York blocked the app in December in response to a growing number of sexually graphic posts aimed at the school’s transgender community.” Although anonymous social media was blocked, students continued using the app discarding the school 's policy. Other colleges have taken a different approach to combat the negative usage of anonymous social media. “In December, a group of 50 professors at Colgate University — which had experienced a rash of racist comments on the app earlier in the fall — flooded the app with positive posts,’ in hopes that the ‘constructive voices would overwhelm the destructive ones.” As expressed in the author 's claim, the best way to get rid of the problem is to get rid of anonymous social media
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.
Some social justice efforts by college students have reached the point in which they have become a nuisance to the public eye. The University of California Berkeley had a social justice protest on December of 2014. This protest spanned over many days and consisted of over a thousand students fighting for the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The protestors managed to cause havoc in the Berkeley area by blocking the Interstate 80 highway; this prevented the public from commuting on the highway from both directions. Social justice warriors even smashed windows and stole from a local Radio Shack while fighting for their cause; trash cans were set on fire in the process as well.
Why did the Montgomery bus Boycott succeed? The Montgomery bus boycott was a huge protest against the public bus systems in Montgomery, Alabama. The protesters participating refused to ride the busses in that area so that they would eventually no longer operate. Rosa Park’s arrest triggered the protest. There are quite a few reasons it succeeded.
After Brown Vs Board all southern schools were ordered to desegregate “with all deliberate speed” and many schools did not desegregate such as the high school in Little Rock, Arkansas; nine black students wished to attend and were harassed by whites including Melba Pattillo who had acid poured on her face and was stabbed. After the white resistance would not disappear, partly due to Orval Faubus’s lack of support for the black students, Eisenhower sent in federal troops to escort the black students to and from class. This showed involvement as this was the first time a president had directly got involved with the civil rights campaign and showed he public and the rest of the south that racism would not be tolerated and desegregation needed to happen. Another way president showed support was JFK. In 1963 JFK addressed Civil rights in a speech calling it a moral issue.
The football team of the high school appeared “to have been ground zero for the scandal.” This resulted in a forfeit of their Friday game and a parental meeting to address these shocking events. These parents talked about the problems that are being exploited to the public and the lies that are being told. It is said that the children will be prosecuted with misdemeanors and the adults could be getting sexual offender charges depending on the photos they have acquired. With that being said, over 100 students could end up with misdemeanors because of their actions. Law enforcement does not know if this is a good prosecution because most of the student involved sent pictures of themselves.
