One goal was to ensure political, educational, social, and economic equality for all Americans. They also seek to remove all barriers of racial discrimination by using the democratic process. Another goal was to remove lynching and segregation from all public schools and buildings. Though one the NAACP’s main goal was for blacks to have equal rights just like whites. Also wanted blacks to have high-paying jobs and equal voting rights.
The civil right movements broke the pattern on public places that were being segregated by “race” mostly in the south. All of this achieved were breakthrough to gain equality rights for African Americans. The civil rights movement main principle was to be done with nonviolence and civil disobedience. Martin Luther King believed it was essential for the civil rights movement not sink to the level of the racists and haters who opposed
They wanted the oppression of African-Americans to stop. They wanted freedom for their people. Though they had differences, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. understood each other. They understood that each person is entitled to their own opinions and philosophies. Both men were majorly influential during the Civil Rights era and overcame their differences because they had a common goal.
Every slave free became an American citizen in the county. The newly made amendment made people aware of possible actions that can count as slavery. It also enforced everyone 's freedom no matter their race. In addition, the law allowed everyone to own land, buy clothing, live anywhere, like any free person would receive. After Congress established the Thirteenth Amendment, some people were confused about what was slavery and what was not.
The amendment tells that all persons born or naturalized in the United States are citizens of the United States (厚). Because the terms “citizens” and “person” appear in this amendment, African Americans certainly have political rights and privileges or immunities (厚). Also, civil rights rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment pointed out that African American can guarantee of equal protection under the law (厚). However, in spite of they are citizens, the discriminatory acts of private citizens and segregation alone were not illegal. The “separate but equal” led to the Jim Crow laws, which resulted in blacks being treated as second-class-citizens.
This influence can help us eliminate racial violence, crimes, and improper care. This country is home to the free, and everyone is born as an equal individual. Therefore, we must push for advocates in the health care field to transform their departments to fit an equal based lifestyle. Equality in America has been a pressing issue since slavery. Slavery is only an example for the racial injustice, inequality, and hardship in the United States.
As a counter for “Patriotism is for White People” by Terrell Jermaine Starr, Michael Harriot describes how America came to be because of Black people. Black America is the group most responsible for making America live up to the saying of “liberty and justice for all.” “They are the ones who screamed at America to do better” as Michael Harriot describes it.The Root is an American online magazine on Black people culture which will feature news and opinions on black issues in the United States. This article is useful because people can realize how helpful has been black people in the country and because of all their actions they deserve to be treated equally and not as a minority.
To put it simply it an all-inclusive movement that stands for the inclusion of black people and exercises the pro-black agenda in a way that they see fit. I want to restate this because this is very important not every pro-black movement has acted in the same way. The National Black Justice Coalition makes HIV/AIDS work centers and opens up job opportunities for black LGBT youth. While the Innocence Project works to free wrongfully convicted African Americans. With very different approaches both movements able to aid black people without excluding some or spreading false information.
Many parts of Martin Luther King’s dream have come true, or much closer to realization. The dream of ending segregation has been fulfilled and there are equal rights for all races. The USA and much of the world has moved a long way towards Kings wishes that people should “not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” One of the interesting documentary, I watched was call The Color of Fear, where it was talking different ethnicities. . The Color of Fear informs people about issue of white privilege in race relations.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Pursuer of Equality If Martin Luther King Jr. did not have the courage to speak out and experience life-changing events, the world we live in today would be very different. In America, Martin Luther King Jr. is acknowledged as the leader of the civil rights movement. Martin Luther King Jr. changed the world by ending segregation, so people of all races would be equal. During his trip to equality, he risked his life, hosted protests and boycotts to gain freedom and equality for all African Americans. Because of his actions, everyone in America is welcome and treated the same.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that despite the government, everyone is entitled to the same law and shouldn’t be discriminated based on race. According to Dr. King, all races are equal however he draws an attention to the separation between races and how the Negro community must work hard into earning their rights. In the Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Dr. King states “Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging dark of segregation to say, ‘Wait’.” Dr. King is implying that white people have never felt segregation in their lifetime. They don’t have to “wait” for anything
Both authors also discuss that we as humans choose to obey or disobey according to what feel is right from wrong. Furthermore I agree with disobedience to a point. Disobedience is essential to us as human beings, without disobedience we would go nowhere we’d be slaves to the government. An example of a concurrent matter where obedience is ok to disobey is the, “Black Lives Matter Movement.” The black lives matter movement consists of contribution to all African American lives. Black lives, queer lives, and the disabled.
Affirmative Action is any measure, beyond simple termination of a discriminatory practice, that permits the consideration of race, national origin, sex, or disability, along with other criteria, and which is adopted to provide opportunities to a class of qualified individuals who have either historically or actually been denied those opportunities and/or to prevent the recurrence of discrimination in the future. One reason I support Affirmative Action is because it is only right to treat everyone with equality. Another reason is because, as a citizen of the United States of America, I have the right to be treated fairly just as well as anybody
The EEOC as defined by my resource is, “The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that enforces federal laws prohibiting workplace discrimination.” This agency was created back in 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was relevant. The goal was to initially protect minorities so they have just a much of an opportunity to work as everyone else. Today they protect more than just African Americans, but everyone! What they do today is interpret the law to reflect the freedom and rights that everyone is entitled to. They hold meetings, have hearing, and take legal action against companies who discriminate against anyone.
