What rights should everyone have? How do we balance these rights? Everybody has rights protected by the constitution, but for every right a human is given there is a balance that limits the power of the right. Rights are considered to be necessary for civilization, being thought of as the principles of society and culture. I believe that everyone is born with the freedom of speech, we are all born equally, and I also believe that you have rights no matter where you go.
Tim stated in one of his talks that blacks and latinos are more likely to be picked up and searched for drugs. While the white community is less likely to be picked up, but when they are they have the drugs on them at the time. This is a major problem because your having our government racially profiling is going to lead to a lot of problems in society. Just because we acknowledge we have a problem, doesn’t mean that we are going to do anything about it. Tim Wise, said something that really stuck in my mind.
I can tell you that this constant rejection from two very vital foundations of a person’s life is very disheartening. Forcing someone to have no source of income and/or no home due to discrimination is wrong. I believe that it is a crime against humanity and is un-American. America was founded by people who were seeking freedom from persecution and discrimination. This country has fought all sorts of injustices, from slavery to segregation and the right for women to vote, but yet in this day and age people are still getting away with discrimination.
Therefore, many people try to avoid talking about such controversial subjects. When living in a country comprised of a variety of races, one might think that acceptance and the freedom to live free of discrimination, especially by law enforcement officials, should be automatically granted, for a society of different individuals allows the realization that a specific race is not the only one inhabiting this world and that other races are here for the same reason. And yet this is not the case with the majority of the population today. Even though black people tend to be less educated and are lower income, the judicial system is racial profiling because white people commit the same amount of crimes as blacks but more blacks are in prison than whites. In 2010, the Bureau of Justice Statistics found that “in the United States an estimated 558,700 African American adults were incarcerated under the state and federal jurisdiction.
The Human Rights Movement of the United States brought to justice a large portion of unconstitutional treating of dark-skinned and/or female American citizens, not to mention just about any non-Caucasian individuals. The very principle of freedom and the lack of discrimination was a founding property of America; religious freedom. People were tired of being oppressed for their religion, so they did something about it. Again, things like this have brought other countries to perform similar actions for the betterment of their governmental systems and
Not only celebrities are against this bill, the head of state also has a strong dislike for this bill. In a recent news article Obama stated his views on the Arizona Immigration Law. He believes the law goes against American morals. It is wrong for the police to stop citizens because of their appearance or how they sound. Although Obama is against the passing of the immigration law, he does admit that there is a problem.
Additionally, there are many other ways of maintaining the honor of true recipients. The Supreme Court seems to care more about money and civility, then honor. I think that this law can raise questions about how and whether the Supreme Courts are really able to identify true harm. Many Supreme Court Justice’s seem to think that many of the lies told do not endanger or harm anyone enough to warrant limiting their freedom of speech. The many stories on social media talking about The Stolen Valor Act will tend to create skepticism about the entire award system in itself, they see these lies as being part of a protected right under the constitution.
The internment of Japanese Americans into camps because of fear that they might pose a threat to the nation was one of the darkest moments in American racial history. “But once a Judicial opinion rationalizes such an order to show that it conforms to the Constitution, or rather rationalizes the Constitution to show that the Constitution sanctions such an order, the court for all time has validated the principal of racial discrimination” (149). However, it is important to note that although most of the American public did not likely view Japanese Americans as a threat, mass hysteria and uncertainty can sometimes dilute our true perceptions of what is right and wrong. More important than the mistake made, is the fact that it was in time corrected and publicly acknowledged as oppressive. “Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured here than in any other place on Earth.
In several of these cases, these under developed countries do not have a strong centralized government. Once a stronger nation takes control over them this gives them a lesser chance of ever getting to control their nation. The United States is known for using the imperialist policy. But i believe that they should not be so concerned about taking control over other countries and making improvements there before they make improvements for their own people. the United States's attempt to taking over other countries many negative affects on the people of the other country, but it has a negative affect on the people of the United States as
There were several consequences that developed due to the rise of religious fundamentalism that proved to be detrimental on both the regional and global scale. On the regional scale, the rise of religious fundamentalists that were known for their violent nature created political instability and the rise of authoritarian regimes in response as extremists threatened the secular foundations of independent states. Making matters worse, the extremist stance and violent methods that the religious fundamentalists adopted translated into the constant disruptions of peace processes which led to the protraction of regional conflicts. While not all religious fundamentalists had a global outreach, those groups that did have the international network played a critical role in the rise of global terrorism and the undermining of international law due to their illegal and brutal actions. Evidently, the impacts of the rise of religious fundamentalism was undeniably significant and detrimental on both a regional and global level.
