Civil Rights and advancing of racial equality has been a major issue for many, many years and seems to still be today. There are periods of time when the intensity is at a low and periods of time when it seems to be very volatile. Sound our focus be on economic opportunities, as outlined by Booker T. Washington, or for addressing the disfranchisement of African Americans that Charles W. Chesnutt described. A broad educational background, permitting vocational adaptability and flexibility, seems more imperative but then one could argue that you cannot obtain that education without the representation and protection of our civil rights. Can a great education change things.
Education is the backbone to society. A society that is uneducated cannot think rationally. The education of youth guarantees our future. It is the foundation and the building block which ensures each generation will succeed when they reach adulthood. Success as a student is influenced by both internal and external forces. Internal forces, such as mental and physical health, along with external forces such as the length of the school year and day, and parental involvement will have a major impact on a student’s success in education.
Success cannot be defined, as each individual has his own definition of it. To some it is having economic stability a healthy bank balance; to others it is fulfilling their dreams, having a successful career. But in order to achieve success do we really need a fancy college degree?
Malcolm X once said “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepared for it today.” In the western world education plays a vital role in shaping our future; it determines if we will survive or fail in the world we created for ourselves. Our world is constantly changing and it requires a society that is well versed in understanding the problems deriving from cultural differences and tolerance of one another’s beliefs and perceptions. With the power of education we are able to deal with the problems of economic, government, religion and culture differences.
Our family can only eat whatever we grow on a small plot of land located a short way from our house. We have no other form of income so if we are unable to pick anything to eat from the land we go without food on that day. This happens a lot and we regularly go several days without any food at all. When we do pick vegetables from the land it’s very rarely enough for the whole family to be fed so my husband and I have to decide who will eat that day. You can see my younger children crying a lot, it’s because they are so hungry.”“The only source of water for our family is a shallow well situated near to our field. The water is very dirty and the children regularly get sick
Imagine living in a world where you are completely oblivious to the reality surrounding you. Forever deprived from knowledge due to the fact of the color of your skin. This was the life of Malcolm X and Frederick Douglass; two African American men who were faced with tough obstacles such as lack of knowledge, social status, and generally trying to survive in a white man’s world. In the past, African Americans were subjected to harsh living conditions. Many tried to escape this fate but for most of the times have failed. Malcolm X and Frederick Douglass somehow manage to overcome the burden of lacking in knowledge by performing tasks that allowed them to gain an education.
However because Norway has a monarchy the executive power is vested in the King or Queen and executive power is exercised by the King’s council, the cabinet led by the prime minister. Both Cuba and the Unites States constitution calls for an elected president or ruler. In Cuba the People’s National Assembly elects from itself a Council of Ministers which is the highest ranking executive and administrative body and constitutes the government of the Republic. The president, First Vice President, Vice Presidents and other members of the Council of Ministers, as determined by the president, make up the executive committee. The president is the head of state and the head of government. In the United States the executive power lies with the president however the legislative belongs to Congress which consists of both the House of Representatives and Senate. Unlike Norway’s King and Cuba’s president, the United States president has enough power but his authority is limited by comparison. But there are some restrictions placed on Norway’s King like not being outside of the capital for a period longer than 6 months and having to profess the religion of the country. There are no such restrictions placed on the United States or Cuban presidents. Not only must the Norwegian King profess an Evangelical-Lutheran religion but so must more than half of the members of the Council of State. Norway, unlike Cuba
A common struggle we have today is the topic of education and how it’s supposed to be used in our society. Some may say that education is only used as a time consumer place holder to stop the flooding of jobs while others say that it is a journey to discover who we are and what we are interested in doing in the future. In the autobiography “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” by Alex Haley and Malcolm X (1965), they emphasize how Malcolm’s prison studies made him be able to become one of the most articulate and powerful leaders of black America during the 1960s. Freeman A. Hrabowki III’s (2003) commentary, “College prepare people for life” discusses how college isn’t a waste of time and how its education

It is a beautiful country, but it is also weak, poor, and has a lot of problems such as the war going on now. “Operation Decisive Storm” the ironic name of Saudi Arabia’s aerial campaign in Yemen, has led to nothing decisive in Yemen beyond ensuring that my home country remains a failed country and fertile ground for organizations like Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. This saddens my heart because of groups like Al-Qaeda; many people fear us and do not accept us in the American Society. I love my home country, and I want everyone to know that not all Arabian people are terrorists. Many of the people in my country are very nice, they give respect, and they love others as their
