Throughout the history of the United States, there has been no shortage of wars. However, no war has had as big of an impact as the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War sparked some of largest anti war movements in United States history, and considering the size of the protests it is no surprise that the anti War movement began to link up with other movements at the time, specifically the Civil Rights movement. In the 1960s and 1970s, the United States saw a stark connection between the anti Vietnam War protests and the ongoing Civil Rights Movement. Many of the protestors supported both campaigns since the War negatively impacted the Civil Rights Movement.
During this war, because of the advancement in weaponry and technology, the excessive amount of death was a supreisment to the different powers. Specifically, the global war took the life of more than 9 million soldiers and wounded more than 21 million (“World War I history”). In addition, there were about 20 million civil casualties. Although the United States weren’t the who was affected the most in death, the war had an impact on American literature (Dayton). During the war, the American literature started off by author having their perspective on the idea of United States entering the war, which eventually change because of the involvement.
They were many things that affected the outcome of the deadly Civil war. The Civil war changed history in America. During the days of the Civil war there were 3 million that fought and 600,000 paid the sacrifice for freedom. The main two that I focused on to write about were Immigration and African Americans. These had a great impact at the end of the war.
The Voting Rights Act was one of the most revolutionary bills ever passed by the congressional legislation in the United States. President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the bill into law on August 6th, 1965, not only as part of politics but also, a depiction of morals. Since 1965, it has protected minority voters at the polls, but it has been fifty years since the Voting Rights Act has been passed and it is still a controversial topic that is constantly debated on today. The voting rights of all minorities throughout the country are once again under attack which impacts one’s ability to exercise his or her constitutional right as a citizen. Preceding the Civil War, people of color, especially African Americans were practically disenfranchised everywhere throughout all fifty states of the United States.
World War 1 was an atrocious war that caused millions of deaths and hundreds of billions of dollars in reparations. World War 1 lasted from 1914 to 1919 and rudimentarily, was the fight between the Allied powers and the Central powers. The Allied powers consisted of France, Great Britain, Russia, and Belgium while the Central powers consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire. All countries had some participation and damage done throughout World War 1, and the countries who started the war may be obscure. However, there are some countries that can especially be picked out for their contribution and cause for the war.
Police brutality and racial profiling has always been a conflicting, and a long debated problem. The number of African-American males being killed or the number of African-American males facing excessive force by the law enforcement because of their skin color is rapidly growing throughout the years. Especially after the recent events that took many lives of young African-American people in the last couple of years in the United States, approximately 920 in 2015 alone, this became a very popular issue again, and caused unrest throughout the entire world. The chance of a black unarmed male getting killed is more than twice compared to a white individual. There had been many attempts to answer this problem, however it is still not solved.
Not only do these horrendous injustices exist, but they have for over one hundred years. The repetition of “One hundred years later” emphasizes the extreme importance of time and causes the audience to need to think logically (King 3). If no one acts now, then the oppressions facing African Americans may continue for another century or longer. Additionally, this concept of time carries a significant amount of guilt. America has been aware of its injustices and has allowed them to occur for an entire century.
Racial profiling is mainly used by law enforcement officials as a way to knit out who their criminal suspects could be. Racial profiling is not benefitting anyone and has affected many people. Racial profiling has affected many lives for many years, especially people of color because law enforcement officials have often arrested, interrogated on the wrong person because of Racial Profiling. It is believed that the Racial Profiling is mainly towards the African American and the Muslim religion. Racial profiling became very high and important to do ever since September 9, 2001 because of the attacks on the World Trade Center.
Racism and equality have something that has been going on for a long time now, dating back to all the way when Martin Luther King gave his “I have a dream” speech. The topic racism is something that needs to be changed; we do not need it in the world we live in right now with everything that has been going on. The major thing that is going on right now is the topic of how cops treat African Americans. We have seen many cases of the cops shooting and killing blacks the past few years, and it is something that is becoming a major issue. “For example, seven-in-ten blacks and about one-third of whites (29%) say blacks are treated unfairly as whites in the court”.
“In the year 2004, there were approximately 1.37 million abortions performed in the United States” (Chew 143). Since 1973 and even before, abortion has raged into a hot-topic issue among the press, politicians, and even doctors; among many other people. This topic has been disputed since even before the late Nineteenth Century. During the 1940s, it even became a social norm to raid the abortionists’ offices. From that time on, the abortion debate has been brought into light many times.
Most of the blame for World War One was thrown on the back of Germany, but are they really the main reason why the war escalated to where it did? WW1 was a four year long war, starting in 1914 and ending in 1918 with around 10 million people dying. It was a very widespread war with many countries involved and many people often ask why it became so big. The main reason was because the countries that started the war, Austria-Hungary and Serbia, had alliances with other countries that had alliances with other countries and so on and so forth. Some other contributing factors to the war were most likely militarism and imperialism.
Civil War: The Battle of Jonesborough Was the Civil War necessary? Were there really victories? Over the span of the Civil War there were thousands of casualties. Each battle was the result of these casualties and affected the outcome of the Civil War. As the Civil War continued many of the decisions made by the leaders led to different events and affected the outcome of the battle and how the Civil War would end.
The expansion of the Islamic empire was a big time in history for the Muslims, it was their big breakthrough. The most important events that caused the expansion were the military, the treaty of Tudmir, and the granting of gifts. I think the most significant reason the Muslims had a big breakthrough and expanded was because the military. The military and other Muslims including women conquered the Greeks and took their land. “70,000 of them(the Greeks) were put to death.”(Document A).
The religion of Islam spread rapidly in the 7th century. Islam spread quickly because of the military. During this time, on numerous accounts there were military raids. Trade and conflict were also apparent between different empires, all of which resulted in the spreading of Islam. According to document C, Mecca had been taken under Muslim rule between 622-632.
Four innocent lives taken, twenty-two people injured, causing affliction in the families lives. Because of Birmingham having a big impact United States and the Civil Rights Movement, it changed racial history. The KKK had a momentous role in the Racial equality fight, The Civil Rights Movement. Birmingham 16th Street Church Bombing had a significant impact on the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. The KKK was a white nationalized group that included former veterans, which created the first branch of the group.
