Charles Lawrence in his racist speech tries to convince that racist speech needs to be regulated. He argues that hate speech is intolerable in the United States because it represents discrimination which Everyone defines hate speech differently. I define hate speech as anything that incites aggression regarding one person or a group of people. Now a day’s people uses free speech as a defense for saying anything but discriminating someone is not free speech. Hate speech against minority is discrimination which has no place in our society.
Judge Danforth Explains that “I cannot pardon these when twelve are hanged for the same crime” (119). Danforth knows that Procter is right, but he is not trying to please solely Procter. Danforth has an entire community to worry about, in a town where nearly everyone is considered crazy, Danforth is the last solid figure they have. If Danforth starts to second guess himself, he fears that people will be very upset, if he admits he unjustly killed 12 people, then he is the worst murderer of them all. Overall, Danforth was wrong.
All these terrible things we can prevent by means of a passive dialogue. Consecutively, one of the worst conflicts in the history of the United States was My Lai Massacre. The responsible for the spilling of innocent blood is from the soldiers called Charlie Company. My Lai was a Village with about 700 inhabitants in Vietnam. After this massacre was over, only
This is a ridiculous percentage and shows that police aren't doing anything to try to minimize this problem. There have been many cases that explain why these percentages are so high. For example, that of Amilcar Perez-Lopez, a 20 year old undocumented immigrant from Guatemala whom two, San Francisco police officers shot and killed on February 26. Police brutality doesn't only happen on lations, but also an African American like Michele Brown, who
Additionally, the Dakota conflict that led to the hangings of 38 Native Americans is the biggest mass execution to occur in United States. This history should never be forgotten so it’s never repeated. Students should learn more about this at school because ignoring this adds to the disrespect the United States has done to Native Americans. In conclusion, The Dakota Conflict of 1862 along with the other event form the tragic history of Native Americans in the United
It delivers an emotion that a lot of people can’t truly feel since they didn’t go through this horrible event. The officers gave the victims horrific choices that no one should ever make. Why does this book matter to all of us? It matters a lot, 6 million innocent people were pushed passed their limits, brutally punished, and murdered, yet the world kept silent. I think more people should know what went on in these camps and how the victims had to fight for their lives to survive.
It is unconstitutional, and there are even precedents set, to set certain boundaries within racial profiling. Under our law,“...every person is innocent until proven guilty. When officials use profiling, they are indirectly blaming entire communities because a few among them have committed horrible crimes. Not only is that wrong, but it 's also a waste of law-enforcement resources.”(Kaenel). It is said that every person is innocent until proven guilty, and not the other way around.
Law enforcement do not recognize the minorities they victimize in a way that one should be acknowledged. They view them as troublemakers or nuisances that should be in prison because they are always up to no good. Taylor states, “Within these perspectives, misrecognition shows not just a lack of due respect. It can inflict a grievous wound, saddling its victims with a crippling self-hatred” (Taylor). The perspective that people who practice racial profiling view minorities results in negative effects.
There are many tough parts to the book but obviously the worst one would easily be when Abraham Lincoln was shot in the back of the head by John Wilkes Booth. It was one of the worst thing to ever happen in the American Government and it was the first president to be Assassinated. Obviously being president Lincoln could not make every person in the United states but he did what he thought was the best for our nation and our country. And most of the time he was right. The night President Lincoln was shot there was also another attack on secretary of state William H Seward he was the secretary of state at the time and stabbed him three times in the throat and twice in the
