In the article, Don’t Be Hatin by Trisha Liu, the so-called America the free seems to contradict itself. “The land of Freedom and Equality...is where oppression ends” (Liu, paragraph 2). Over the years, obtaining equal rights for the citizens that were a part of America has been common. “same-sex marriage...is the newest form of hate”(Liu, paragraph 2). America has equal rights for everyone but, for some odd reason, a lot of people decide to discriminate gays.
Meanwhile the government are not protecting the LGBT community because it’s considered “wrong” this causes violence towards homosexual. For example, the cons about Gay Rights is that “Married LGBT couples can access the same assistance as heterosexual couples and are afforded the same amount of protection under the law”(Duigon 4). The government does not show equalness towards the LGBT community as they do to the “straight” people. It’s disappointing that protection is reduced because he or she is attracted to their same gender or more, but how government ignores that fact that they are struggling as well at the other and yet nothing has changed for them. To go into more detail, Mississippi has created a law to where doctors can refuse to provide medical care to he or she that are homosexual, as well as therapist do not have to counsel them either.
The main reason for Democrats defending the legalization of gay marriage is because they don’t bring in a religious aspect or bias. Religion has been the backbone of numerous anti-gay marriage views as many hate, conservative, and homophobic groups have used this excuse to attempt to deny gay people the right to marry the person they love. However, Democrats follow the separation of church and state; therefore, they have chosen to defend gay people and their right to get married as there is practically no justifiable or medical reason that proves that being gay is not right or gay people cannot raise children as properly. Democrats also understand that there are certain rights and benefits that gay people were denied before the legalization of gay marriage. The rights and benefits include tax breaks, custody of both parents in adopting, and being able to visit one’s spouse while one is in the hospital.
This explain how did the reformers react to the other opinion, and how this going to affect people’s thinking through those kind of challenges. “To the women of the race may be attributed in large measure the refinement and purity of the colored home... Seeking no favors because of their color nor charity because of their needs they knock at the door of Justice and ask for an equal chance”(78). The book is not all about equality and freedom for man, it is also for women. All of them are seeking for a equal chance in the United
Minorities have had far from an easy ride in life especially in America. The past policies of America to segregate individuals by law and press them by the practice of “redlining” may no longer be around, but both policies have left traces of their effects in American society even decades later. The American public is often oblivious to their own actions of segregating people in their lives and oblivious to the obvious reasons for the large minority population in the lower class. Once Americans can take responsibility for their actions and actual follow their own words of equality America can become a country that minorities and non minorities can be proud to live
Starting out with this phrase has a strong impact on the reader immediately. In our society, gay marriage opposers are notorious for citing “religious freedom” in order to not serve the LGBT community, and by and large we have accepted this. By bringing a somewhat obscure religion- Hinduism- into the discussion, Von Drehle is able to give the reader a better picture of what Davis is actually doing- and by forcing the reader to recognize that for anything else, citing religious freedom would not be an excuse to not perform one’s duties as an elected official in a community. By starting out with a question to the reader rather than an opinion he wishes the
That is only a small portion of what he did and is still a lot to accompish for just a normal man. He made our country better and tried his very best to make the people happy. He was selfless and caring. The final reason why Thomas Jefferson was the strongest President to live was because he made a huge impact on our society. According to the article, He impacted the educational systems of the growing country.
"It always seems impossible until it 's done," this seemed to be the case of Nelson Mandela. Mandela fought against apartheid, or a policy of system of segregation on grounds of race, that took place in South Africa. One of these regulations that took place was the "Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act of 1949. " This act outlawed marriages between white people and other races; the Act effected the people who loved someone from a different race. Yes, racism was probably still around in those parts of the world and the time period, but it 's possible that it wasn 't as harsh as the United States was; this stopped the non-racist people from marrying who they want to.
Women in the 1920s are somewhat similar to the LGBT Community. In a way gays are the new women. Just as females were struggling to attain their voting rights, the gays are also experiencing the same situation. Although few states allowed it, numerous states and countries still disapprove of same-sex marriage. However, the majority of the gay population are very open with their sexuality, and they’re demanding for marriage rights.
The conflict between the parties is weakening the power of our national government because without Congress working together to create laws they are opposing each other. Even though this opposition may weaken us it is one of Congress 's’ implied powers. An implied power is a power that is practically given to the federal government, also known as an elastic clause. Congress’ arguments on gun control is wasting time, while they are arguing over something that may not ever be changed rather that passing new reasonable laws that can strengthen our country. The Democratic sit in was overall a failure at moving any
Therefore, even though people have different opinions about gay marriage, gay marriages are legal and are not less significant than a heterosexual marriage. Even though RFRAs provide people a way to escape from reality, citizens of the United States will have to be aware that gay marriage is still legal and cannot escape from this fact. Ultimately, although people are trying to avoid the reality of gay marriage, they cannot through RFRAs because they will still see married gay people.
The GOP support Second Amendment rights, the right to bear arms, to ensure that everyone has the ability to defend themselves not only from criminals, but also from enemies trying to attack. Abortion is not viewed favorably by most Republicans and neither is stem-cell research. The Republicans are also mainly against LGBT marriage rights but not just because they do not agree with the idea, but because they believe the decision should be left to the states. The Democrats are the complete opposite. Democrats try to limit the Second Amendment as much as possible.
When protests, like those in Ferguson became extremely radical and violent it disconnects the moderate Americans needed to help fuel social movements. When a group practices nonviolence, especially in cases where the opposing side is using violence, it elevates their cause. People are more likely to to support the group that stands tall as their beaten down by oppressors, then the group the causes massive riots, ruining everyone’s lives. Not only would nonviolence ennoble the Black Lives Matter cause, but it would degrade the support for the police, as moderate Americans will back down their support from a group that assaults a man preaching peace. The simple act of nonviolence could raise the Black Lives Matter movement to that of even Martin Luther King’s movement, causing massive national cries to end police
In the news of 2017 there’s been quite an amount of bashing and opinionated laws being addressed. In the century we live in now you would think that everyone would be more open minded or more respectful to the point of where they don’t allow things to bother them. Transgender Equality Rights has been a powerful topic for ages and today the LGBT community are still fighting to just be treated like humans. People learn that “all men are created equal.” However, equality is something that men and women in the LGBT community struggle with and have yet to achieve.
Current Racism in America The Civil Rights movement brought segregation to a general close but many people have the illusion that it ended all racism when in actuality, racism is still very much a problem in this country even though it is kept under wraps and disguised. It only keeps progress from occurring and limits the social progression of a society that is expected to be great. Denial of the issue doesn’t mean it does not exist. While men and women of all colors can now drink from the same fountain, they are not safe from institution discrimination or even dirty looks from their peers.
