Rudy Giuliani * “There are many qualities that make a good leader, but having strong beliefs, and being able to stick with them through popular and unpopular times is what makes a GREAT leader” this is a quote by the former mayor of NYC Rudolph Giuliani. Born in Brooklyn in 1944 as the grandson of Italian immigrants, Rudy Giuliani was like any other child. He graduated high school and went on to college pursuing law. After graduating college he worked as a judicial clerk for many years and eventually worked his way up to chief of the narcotics unit in NYC where he later served as executive US Attorney. In 1981 Giuliani earned the position of Associate Attorney General which is the third highest position in the department of justice.
On august 8th 1974 president Nixon release his resignation speech to the world. Nixon did this because of the Watergate scandal. Nixon knew that he was going to be impeached, so he didn’t want that event to be strung on. President Nixon never stated that he had anything to do with the Watergate break-in. president Nixon was arguably one of the best presidents this country has ever had, but he was one of the most corrupt.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee tells the story of Tom Robinson. A black man falsely accused of raping a white woman, Mayela Ewell, through the eyes of Atticus’ daughter Scout. Atticus Finch chooses to take his case and defend him. Although the case was lost from the beginning, Atticus masterfully used logos, pathos and ethos in an attempt to win over the jury so they would declare him innocent. Atticus used logos to attempt at logically convincing this racist jury that there was no way Mr. Robinson could have committed the rape.
He also brings up about how civil right leaders have the right to bash these black celebrities that are putting down their own race. They fought so hard to be free and have the same rights as a white person so he is confused on why they would bash their own race. He should have added more statistics and maybe where he got his facts. He says the homicide is on the rise for black woman and rape is often found with black girls primarily. Where did he get those statistics?
The two were discriminated because the suspects thought that they were gay or assumed it. I feel a person should not assaulted or killed because of the lifestyle they live. In “ Because That’s What We Do to Faggots,” Wilchins explains to the reader about two assaults on homosexuals that never hit mainstream. The first story was a man named Alexander Gray, who resided in Washington D.C. On June 9, Gray was battered by three or four men with a shovel while they yelled
He attempts to grab the older sister, and she fought with him to get away from his grip he then proceeds to the other sister attacking her and throwing her onto the ground and begins raping her. Being a man of color talking to a white woman could be one the worst crimes any African American male could commit back in 17th century. Since he did not write his own confession, the validity of the story is questionable. It is very possible that the author could have made up his own version on what happened on that fateful day. Although the confession of Joseph Mountain sounds convincing if the reader were to examine the confession through a critical lens on the unfair treatment of African Americans judicially, Joseph Mountain life history and the authorship of the confession one would come to the conclusion that Joseph Mountain was
As our country has becomes more desegregated, we learn more and more about equality, no matter what your skin color. In the movie, To Kill Mockingbird, bigotry is a huge factor that affects many lives. While watching the movie, I began to wonder how the outcome of the story would have been different had one character’s skin color been white. The movie starts off with narrator talking about a knowledgeable story from when she was little. Her father Atticus, a lawyer, had a choice to defend a black man, Tom Robison, who was being accused of raping and beating up a young white women.
It threw many people together from various backgrounds who might not have met if not for the war.- Working class and middle class, black and white, different religions and ethnic groups. The African Americans fought in the war for their country and believed that their contribution to the war should get them recognized as American citizens. They were recognized as heroes, but couldn’t be served in restaurants back home. In the UK, it is popularly believed that for the first time, wealthy middle class country dwellers actually got to see the state of poor town children who were evacuated out of the town because of threat of bombing. Women, also, had been forced to do former men's work: munitions, farming, factory work etc.
Using Paul Coffey from “The Green Mile” for example, here you see a black man wrongfully accused of murder sentenced to death. If I look at how society thinks, a black man is a minority and in some regions of various countries, they do not belong. Comparing myself to Paul Coffee, I am a medically diagnosed transsexual who is one of 40,000 and several feel I do not belong. Society has not killed me, but I have been beaten, called several names, and exiled from many areas in society. I can also relate to Carrie White in the movie “Carrie”.
It’s the same story in “Tips for Being an Unarmed Black Teen”, where the author asks their readers to try to see it from the police’s point of view: “You may be unarmed, but you’re also black.” This reasoning might explain why a black person is killed every 28 hours by police, or how “A black person is killed by a white police officer more than twice a week”, probably because “Instead of black people being presented as savages and beasts like they once were, the media perpetuates the notion that black people are gangbangers and thugs” (Taylor). Black people in America are better off hiding out than walking the streets--you know, like a normal
