He encouraged black men to find dignity in hard work and to disapprove the illegal world of gambling, drinking, prostitution and drugs. The nation of Islam was very appealing to young black men especially those who came from a world of crime. Another belief of Elijah Muhammad was separatism, he believed that the black people should have their own state and should protect themselves with force against the whites. This belief divided the black people; there were 3 main divisions, the nation of Islam, Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. Because of this division
I would need an additional document from a white family to see how they felt about unifying with the blacks. In King’s Philosophy violence never solves anything. King felt that by taking part in nonviolent acts, such as sit-ins and marches, job opportunities would become more open to the black community (Doc 6). In his statement, “Violence may murder the murderer, but it doesn’t murder the murder,” he is saying that through violence you will never solve the issue you will only add on to it (Doc 8). King feels this way because when black people rebelled against the whites it only fueled more violence to ensue.
The protest was over African American voting rights, as few African Americans could vote due to racist whites manipulating the voting system. African Americans shied away from voting because of fear of being harassed or absurd tests were given, such as stating the entire U.S Constitution. Johnson’s purpose of his speech was to convince Congress and Americans everywhere to pass his bill on voting reformation. To help make the speech more effective and convincing, Johnson used rhetorical strategies, such as ethos, logos, and pathos. Johnson’s first part of the speech uses rhetorical qualities that unify the audience and make them sympathize with the victims of voting rights.
King’s peaceful methods, and advocated for violence if necessary, it was surely Malcolm X. It was his belief that African Americans should pursue the advancement of their rights and eventual equality by any means necessary. This seeming justification of violence is often scrutinized for what it brings about, which often times is pain and suffering. Similar to King, Malcolm saw the denial of civil rights as morally and ethically intolerable. He often spoke about the violence of racism, and frequently cited examples, which ranged from attacks from police dogs and their club-equipped guards, to being washed down by high-pressured water hoses in broad daylight.
This refusal was against the law and a policeman came to arrest her (Pearson Education Inc. 2007). This incident sparked the community to employ a young civil right leader Dr. Martin Luther King to lead this movement. Although King was only one individual he begins this struggle for justice for all Americans and began to fight for the change values and morals of the South. Dr. King practice non-violence and civil disobedience as a way to change the social structure of equality. Functionalists focused on the individual and how one’s behavior is shaped or moved by social norms and values of the dominant society’s values and norms.
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?
Let me first be clear that to these persons the gang is not believed to be such. The A.L.K.Q.N models itself as a quasi-grass roots organization and a voice of the 3rd world oppressed world, in short it is modeled after the black panthers, young lords and near Marxist beliefs. This is not to say that many do not utilize the nation as a gang and a gateway into illicit business and associations. However in the beginning of each new prospective member’s rise the gang paints a pretty picture of the group they’re about to devote time and money to, not to mention sacrifice blood, sweat and tears for. This is the common consensus, and it also seems to be the shared experience of my target group, both male and female.
Since the onset of colonization black South Africans have resisted and challenged the rule of whites. With the imposition of the apartheid system in South Africa many Africans gained common ground under which they protested their submissive stature. There were many ways in which Africans resisted and challenged the political, economical, and social constraints that were forced upon them during the apartheid ranging from nonviolent to violent. The switch from widespread non-violent protest to violent protest was inevitable. The failure of nonviolent resistance against the apartheid state along with increased violent repressive measures by the state ultimately lead to violent resistance by black South Africans.
Support groups began to arise internationally, as well. At the street level, the Party created a series of social programs to provide services to black and poor people under the slogan “Survival Pending Revolution”. One such program was called Free Breakfast for Children. Thousands of poor and hungry children in public schools across the country were fed free breakfast every day by the Party. To outsiders, the Black Panthers symbolized the aggressiveness of black power, but their programs had greater impact within the black community than their hostile
This was because they wanted to be able to travel on public transport without having segregated facilities. The black Americans used white –only facilities to challenge the law. The freedom riders were attacked by white mobs and beaten with bicycles chains, clubs and baseball bats. There was very little police protection for the freedom riders. The campaign gained a lot of media coverage and did a huge amount to raise awareness of how black Americans were treated in the southern states this was very effective because having a lot of people know how black people were treated would change their opinion on black people and also put pressure on the government because he couldn’t side with the whites who were abusive and blacks who were performing non-violent protest as well as having to stay government with all the
