Richards Dawkins contributed to this theory of natural selection by stating that the evolution theory by natural selection is cumulative and was the only theory known to have principles with the ability to explain the presence of organized complexity (Foster 98-101). There is another example of evolution in action, and this is in insects that have signs of immunity to pesticides and other chemicals considered to be insect’s killers. The overuse of chemicals has resulted in the termination of the non-immune generation leaving behind the immune ones. The immune ones, therefore, get an opportunity to form a more advanced species. A more recent example is the cross breeding that has been of two different species of shark.
The documentary "Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies, and the American Dream", explains how a number of Jewish immigrants in the beginning of nineteen century built the most known six movie studios in Hollywood. Despite America 's open-door immigration policy for all immigrants, Jews, perhaps more than other minorities, encountered a new form a discrimination. The documakers say that they were viewed as outsiders and were blacklisted from working in certain fields such as finance, banking, and other higher education careers.
