Much of the writing that has been published regarding the Progressive era has helped propel it forward as a time of “prosper, middle-class control,” in the minds of young Americans across the nation. Generally considered a highpoint of American political history, the Progressive era has been a benefactor of positive reporting in textbooks through much of history. Although, its alleged connection to socialism caused a significant change in reporting during the years of the Second Red Scare. In examination of five U.S. History textbooks spanning from 1930 through 2011, it is easy to see common themes that historians have kept through the years, as well as how current events played into the writing of history. As we have experienced, recent

The Progressive era, between the years 1895-1920, involved a group called the Progressives, who were single-cause crusaders, incredibly diverse, middle-class female reformers who wanted a better society. They focused on urban societies who wanted to preserve democracy and a free market. They wanted to “Americanize” the citizens of the United States; they also thought that the political parties were corrupt and were very protective of women and children. What began as a social movement came to be a political movement. Many of the Progressives lived in the cities and believed that the government had some impact on the changes that they want go through.
Our society has been subject to different forms of injustice for hundreds of years, such as slavery followed by decades segregation and discrimination. Discrimination is a common thread in the United States throughout the years, and even though slavery has ended, discrimination continues today in many forms. People who have felt discriminated against have responded in many ways from the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s to the Black Lives Matter movement of today. Los Angeles in the 1990s was still a place of segregation that led to discrimination and racial tension. The Los Angeles riots (or the Rodney King riots) in 1992, were another painful but eye opening event in the long fight for justice.
In general, growing up in a community where in justice is order of the day, identity has a role to play. At times people stigmatize you as a result of your identity not minding, you cannot judge a book by its cover. Furthermore, the minorities are mistreated as a matter of their colors. Nevertheless, “Stevenson” listened to his grandmother on the issues of not drinking alcohol; therefore, he grew up to be an advocate for justice. On the other hand, there are something’s which could cause people to fall victims of justice, by not following parental instruction.
The history of the human race has been raised on dispute and conflict. Humans are capable of higher thinking, which gives them the ability to decide whether something is right or wrong. Opinions are based upon many circumstances, such as one’s knowledge, awareness, and experience. Although elder members of society are known to be conservative or antiquated in their ideology, they still maintain the right to think freely and express their own opinions. Recently, there has been a rise in the advocacy of social justice amongst a younger generation in which the ludicrous amount of pressure for the public to think in a politically correct manner is being popularized.
The late 1800’s and early 1900’s was an era of industrialization and progressive reform. The Progressive era was a time where the people gathered and not only demanded change, but worked for it. There was a great amount of corruption between buisness and politics; and the working conditions for the common man were ghastly and for all intents and purposes inhumane. In the end progressives made huge strides in redefining the meaning of equality and improving the social, political and economic problems in American society.
On April 26, I observed the Race and Social Justice FRINQ. Beth Tarasawa is the professor for main session and Iphi Bugingo is the mentor for this FRINQ. Main session began with going over the agenda for the day, which was written on the board. This was a way to remind students of assignments that were due soon. Because there were two guests within the classroom, myself and a guest speaker, everyone in the classroom had a chance to introduce themselves.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” (Martin Luther King Jr.). Injustice even to one man can threaten the foundation that society is built on. What Martin Luther King Jr. is trying to say here is that even the most insignificant act of injustice, even onto one person, is an act of injustice to all people. This seemingly small act of injustice reveals the flaws in society which is a threat to all people. In the novel The Scapegoat By Sophia Nikolaidou, justice is not served.
To me, a social injustice is an act in which an individual or group of individuals are not treated fairly based on his or her gender, sexuality, citizenship status, and/or ethnicity. social injustices arise when individuals, who should be considered as equals, are treated unequally. This is caused by barriers, such as racism, oppression, discrimination, and sexism. Social injustices will not be fixed until the individuals who do not respect others start realizing that it is not our differences that should be held against us, but embraced and glorified. Everyone is different, not one person is the same as the next.
