Obama goes on to say that his former pastor is a good man, that he just has lived and grew up in a time where segregation and the Jim Crow Laws were very much legal in the U.S. The anger and hostility of not being able to achieve something of oneself is felt not only in the African American community, but also in portions of the white community. Obama’s solution to ending this anger of diversity and discrimination is to work together and to move past some of the terrible things that have happened, and take our lives into our own hands and take responsibility for our own lives. We need to come together as a nation and improve our health care, jobs, and schools. After reading this speech I must say that President Obama definitely has some great points that made me really think about our society and how the older generations have really affected peoples lives today.
He also plays a part in affecting the town's morals throughout the novel by being modest, standing up for what he believes in, and seeing things all the way through. Atticus was a positive influence on the town of Maycomb, morally and racially in To Kill a Mockingbird. This research paper looks at how Atticus affected the people of Maycomb, including Tom Robinson, his children, and the townspeople in general. In order to defend Tom Robinson on trial, Atticus had to make many sacrifices that involved the town's opinion and views of him as a person. Though most of the people in Maycomb were racist in some way, many of those people knew Tom Robinson was innocent.
Comparing and Contrasting Thoreau and MLK If there was a law that the public felt to be unjust, who would stand up and call it into question? Henry David Thoreau and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. certainly did in their times. Both men shared a common goal: to make the world a better place by protesting against unfair laws. Though they lived in two different times and disputed against different laws, Thoreau and King also share something in common; they both stood their ground and peacefully fought for what they believed in. Henry David Thoreau believed in many things, but one thing in particular was bettering the government.
Black people also had separate schools and universities, the white schools had more money. When white people attacked black people in public police didn’t try to prevent this, instead they may have even joined in. Martin Luther King was a strong Christian believer so he lived by the teachings of Jesus and didn’t believe in violence and prejudice. He said “We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flout the central teachings of Jesus: brotherly love and the golden rule.” Martin Luther King and his family were victims of abuse during this time, so when he left university he dedicated his life to the civil rights movement which aimed to stop racism, discrimination and prejudice. After the Rosa Parks incident, she and King organised the black boycott of Montgomery bus system in 1955.
So when these domestic companies are getting a steady flow of customers and income, they no longer have any need or incentive for improving the quality of their products. Even if the companies wanted to improve upon their product, the only way they would be able to do so, is by removing taxes on foreign products. But by not doing so, they are rejecting new ideas into their companies and are basically just promoting isolationism since they are refusing to work with other countries and allow them to ship and sell their products freely in the States. This isolationism will cause things like unemployment because when we are refusing to work with other countries, anything related to foreign business is negatively affected. It is also necessary to allow foreign products to come in so competition will increase.
That’s why I agree with the prosecuting argument of the American dream that Minorities, and women, were discriminated against. First off, minority men and women, like Book T. Washington, were oppressed daily by the majority. Slavery was once a very popular mindset of this country, however today we look upon it as cruelty. Book T. Washington was born into slavery and felt the white man oppressing him most of his life. He fought back and gave speeches against such oppression against him and his people.
WHAT LEGACY WILL YOU LEAVE BEHIND? People give up their lives or get deprived of some enjoyment for others to enjoy. They suffer for others to enjoy which is what sacrifice is all about. Martin Luther King Jr. for example, fought vehemently for racial discrimination which he gave his life for it. His autopsy revealed that though he was only 39 years old, he had the heart of a 60 year old man which includes the stress of being a human right activist Martin Luther King fought for racial discrimination in America.
One of the most important things to analyze is the speech objective. As a notable civil rights leader, King’s main objective was to motivate his followers, mainly civil rights activists. His objective was to motivate them to continue their strenuous civil rights work and motivate them to overcome the seemingly unchangeable conditions that they were dealing with. The primary message being delivered was that Blacks in America were not being treated fairly and that they were going to continue to push for justice until it was achieved. He gives examples, such as the fact that most Blacks in the Deep South were still not able to vote and that racial violence was still occurring throughout the Nation.
c. I consider MLK Jr. creative because the way he used his words in his speech also answered a very important question about racism and this speech eventually helped make it stop. d. If he was still alive he would most likely not continue to be creative because as people age they tend to lose their creativity skills. 6. How to Raise Gifted
James Marsh Professor Whitworth RWS 280 December 7, 2011 No Education – No Excuse It is sometimes not uncommon for Americans to provide excuses and blame the “system” as to why they are disadvantaged or lack access to a good education. Muslim minister and human rights activist Malcolm X is an inspirational example that attaining a good education is possible for most people, regardless of their circumstances. In an excerpt from his autobiography, Malcom X chronicles his difficult and unconventional path to that good education while he was an inmate at Norfolk Prison Colony. Although Malcolm X was a controversial figure in American history, he had undoubtedly become an eloquent spokesman and advocate for human rights. This essay will analyze the effectiveness of Malcolm X’s assertion that the pursuit of a good education is obtainable by anyone who is passionate about learning and is willing to use whatever resources are available to that end.
