His teaching could not be as effective because he neglected the influence the white members would have on the movement, by resenting them as a race, therefore handicapping his popularity and likelihood of success within the various white communities. MLk’s method prevailed here because he was trying to change the people as well as the law, Malcolm sought to fight but failed to realize that it is impossible to fight a war when the government and all other forces are behind you
The Ku Klux Klan Imagine living in a society in which friends, family and neighbors are murdered simply because of the color of their skin. What did they do wrong? They existed. This is the life of an African-American living in the southern United States throughout much of America’s history. The formation of the Ku Klux Klan was one of the major contributing factors to the long bloody struggle that was racism in America.
The blacks were treated in an inhumane style, receiving violent beating and extreme manual labour for many hours of the day, minimum amounts of food and poor living conditions. In 1861, the war against Slavery in America began. After 4 years of fighting between the Northern and Southern States of America that left of 600,000 dead, the Northern states had defeated the Southern states that had been fighting for slavery and their own secession. After becoming victorious, the Northern states and the President declared slavery to be abolished in America. However, even after its abolishment, blacks were still kept in slavery and were treated poorly and unequal to other, white Americans.
It is estimated that some 200,000 people participated in the perpetration of the Rwandan genocide. In the weeks after April 6, 1994, 800,000 men, women, and children perished in the Rwandan genocide, perhaps as many as three quarters of the Tutsi population. At the same time, thousands of Hutu were murdered because they opposed the killing campaign and the forces directing it. The Rwandan genocide resulted from the conscious choice of the elite to promote hatred and fear to keep itself in power. This
He feels that with no education the Indians are feel they cannot take care of themselves or their land.

For example, consider how Native Americans, African Americans, or Japanese-Americans may feel about the flag. The United States government evacuated countless Native American communities and relocated them to small, overcrowded reservations. The United States government also promoted the mass slaughter of the animals that the Native Americans typically hunted and consumed, effectively starving most populations. The United States also unashamedly took part in the slave trade, forcing millions of Africans to come to the United States and become slaves. Even after slavery ended, most citizens and leaders in the country believed that African Americans were inferior and made laws specifically to repress African American rights.
These numbers do not include the 1.3 million displaced Africans and more than 40,000 rapes that are increasing with each passing breath. Ishmael Beah, an African who was once a part of one of the many civil wars inside Africa has a perspective of war that no other, author or producer has ever been able to reproduce in the way Ishmael Beah has done. With the creation of his memoir “A Long Way Gone” Ishmael has told the world about the cruelties and injustices committed upon boy soldiers. The attributes that Ishmael Beah uses in his memoir “A Long Way Gone” are simple. The personal bond that Ishmael creates between himself and the audience makes Ishmael a profound and unique storyteller.
W.E.B DuBois was hated by the majority of the white population as he was viewed as a trouble maker. Whether this was a good characterization or not is beside the point. If the whites hated him, then any plan that he backs will likely be met with a similar level of anger and hostility. W.E.B DuBois’ plan may have worked if he had some military power to defend the people who he was trying to help educate from this inevitable
The country had been in a state of segregation for a decade and as a result there had been riots and civil unrest among the blacks and fierce oppression by the whites, this was a place very like a warzone, which leads into the second poem What were they Like?

The USA also devastated the country with horrific weapons of mass destruction. The new weapon napalm was used to burn villages many lives in Vietnam were lost as they were in South Africa.
The genocide in Darfur, Sudan has already caused hundreds of thousands of Darfuris to die and cause more than 2 million people to be homeless. The genocide began in early 2003 when members of two rebel groups revolted against the Sudanese government in Khartoum alleging systematic neglect of the inhabitants of Darfur. The two rebel groups are the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA). The government responded by launching an assault against these two rebel groups. Black Arabs were being discriminated against because they were black and they were being told that they weren't in the right religion.
