The reason behind this was ‘protection against espionage and against sabotage to national defense’. The case of the Supreme Court vs. Korematsu, the executive order was challenged. Mr. Korematsu felt that the executive order was unfair to the greatest extent and refused to leave his residence. He sadly lost his case. The audacity of the Court stated that the racial issues behind this was just a complication and buffed the issues which were determining military dangers and military urgency.
As for the outcome of this article, I truly believe that my views of what happened in this case are clearly stated, to agree with the sentence imposed would be ludicrous. The family victimized by this felon will never be able to completely move on. I truly believe the justice system that the family of the deceased depended on, completely failed them because of fear of reprisal from the witnesses, through the use of possible civil litigation imposed against them, claiming their constitutional rights had been infringed upon. Whatever happened to just doing the right thing? Hector Torres Student ID 51598823 3 of 3 16410 SW 107 Court Project number
The court had already formed a unanimous opinion about Paul’s presumed weakness of character. This opinion was used to entrench the perceptions of his guilt. The violent nature was considered as a natural part of his character. As such, it became necessary for the court to adopt a position that confirmed Paul’s conduct as inherently corrupt and violent (Chamberlain2004, p. 434). Paul’s execution was a consequence of the open bias in the legal structure and the racist interpretations of the law.
This is a perfect example of the mindset these cruel slaveholders embodied. If a slaveholder felt as though he was not in control for but a minute’s time, he was willing to do anything in order to re gain his supreme power. I believe this is why so many slaves were murdered at times. In response to this event, Douglass states, “One of the bloodiest and most foul murders goes un-whipped of justice and uncensored by the community in which he lived” (Douglass 39). Not only were the murdered unpunished, but also the communities were “uncensored”.
Many brutal massacres of the aboriginals occurred; the most famous incident was the Myall Creek massacre, in this incident native people were brutally slaughtered, but the interesting thing is that the perpetrators were punished, which was unheard of at the time. However there were countless other incidents which did not go into the history books, most of the people instigating these attacks were never punished, never even charged. In most cases the law did not recognize the rights of the aboriginal people. However, individual people can not be completely blamed for the wrongs they did, they lived in a time when racial discrimination was the norm. Their individual attitudes were forged from the people around them, so it was not entirely their fault that they had these attitudes, although nothing can excuse the horrific crimes they
I am going to argue that sources 10 & 11 agree that the Amritsar Massacre created widespread and long-lasting hostility among Indians towards British rule. In contrast, I will argue that source 12 disagrees and that the Indian people appreciated British rule. Source 11 strongly highlights widespread hostility towards the British. The source uses words such as ‘dishonest’ and ‘evilly manned’. This shows the lack of respect the Indian people were beginning to progress against the British Government.
The Myall Creek Massacre Transcript We are gathered here today, for the same soul purpose. We are gathered here to commemorate and remember. We are gathered as one race, one race that will pay the highest respect and tranquillity to the fallen at Myall Creek. It was 170 years ago on the 10th of June, 1838 that twelve armed stockmen rode onto the Myall Creek property in Northern New South Wales and rounded up 28 elderly Aboriginal men, women and children of the Kamilaroi people. They forced the aborigines into the bush and slaughtered every last one; an intentional and very well planned serial assassination.
The measure expands the 1969 United States federal hate-crime law to a victims’ actual or perceived gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. The Matthew Shepherd Act was the act that received international attention because of how cruel bullies were to “non-normal” human beings. The Matthew Shepherd Act proves that there is other laws that are being passed due to the huge amount of damage it causes peoples lives. Although it took years to finally get Shepherds justice, legislation still did something about it to show the public how important it is that everyone is equal, and nobody should be treated differently for not being the same as everyone else. Due to the Matthew Shepherd Act, when Tyler Clementi was another suicide case that this Act helped brought justice.
Pat Dodson, David Ross, Lois O’Donohue and other people must shamefacedly account to the Aboriginal Community for, it is our advocacy for that Peace offering.” “Because at the end of the day we were political fools having done so. We secured absolutely no graciousness in return for that gesture”. The article also noted that the Native Title 10 point plan is a “10 Point Scam”. A Racial Discrimination Act Implemented in 1993 meant that all Land bought from this date was officially Illegal. Mining Companies were relieved of the grief of this Illegal Land Aquistion thanks to our Greatest Traitors Australia has ever known by giving the Native Title Legislation to Cabinet on April 27th
(Paternalism is the act of taking care of another’s interests because they are incapable to do so themselves). This government policy held the view that Aboriginal people had to be protected. The policy was based on the idea that Aboriginal people were weaker and inferior because of the colour of their skin, reinforcing the idea that by European standards they were primitive and uncultured. Of course these policies refused to recognise or comprehend that the Indigenous people had a highly-developed culture. Furthermore white society became convinced Indigenous people were dying out and accordingly placed them on government reserves or in church missions where they could die in peace.
