When the revolution was going to its peak Trujillo's regime started to imprison people who were part of the revolution along with jailing revolutionaries were killed and suffered forms of torture. In the book it shows how he got to power and stayed in power. He did it by having a radar on nearly every person in his country. People would be scared to talk bad about him anywhere they went beyond their home. Even then Trujillos secret police could send his men to spy on a specific family or neighborhood.
The evidence that surfaced was able to link Nikon to destroying key documents to cover-up of the break in as well as uncovering that the Nixon reelection committee had run “dirty schemes and tricks” during the campaign against the Democrats. It also shed light on the administrations illegal wiretapping of phones of “the enemies” or journalists that had been extremely critical of Nixon. Even though Nixon continued to maintain that he was innocent it was later revealed after numerous attempts to obtain the evidence that he secretly taped routine conversations that were had in his office. After the amount of incriminating evidence and the endless wonder about the depth of his involvement on August 8, 1974 during a televised special announcement Richard Nixon gave a one line speech vaguely admitting his involvement and public stepping down from office as President. He was succeeded by Gerald Ford who later pardoned Nixon from his crimes.
DHL and the men could not reach an agreement, therefore, on behalf of the federal government, the EEOC helped to process the charges and pursue litigation. The EEOC has filed racial discrimination charges against DHL. African Americans have been the subject of discrimination since the 1600s when they were brought to America as slaves. From 1890 to 1940 the Jim Crow laws enacted throughout The United States openly segregated Black and White Americans in public places. Black Americans were publically beaten, frightened, and even killed (Magar, 2010).
The documentary opens with the 1935 lynching of Reuben Stacy in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It then features recent instances involving the noose in various parts of the United States. This shows the producers point to relate these events and make the audience see the racial meaning of the noose in America. They want the public to realize that hanging a noose is not just a prank but is a really offending act among African-American because of the lynchings during the Reconstruction in the U.S. This movie reveals a sign of regress of our society because, most lynching incidents in America which occurred in public spaces and were usually the result of rape allegations involving black male supposedly assailants and white women who were purportedly their victims has not been seeing as a pure act of cruelty and hated from white supremacist calling for “justice”.
Though the party was committed to ‘non-violence, aggression quickly became associated with black power and with the Black Panther Party through mistreatment of women, robberies, and shootings, especially after Huey Newton was arrested in 1967 for shooting and killing a police officer. As time went on, criminalization of the Black Panthers began to cripple the Black Power Movement. By 1970, police and the FBI counterintelligence program had begun their endeavor to disrupt, disgrace, or neutralize the activities of Black Nationalist organization and its supporters. White working-class society, as well as Republicans feared the ominous behavior that the Black Panthers were promoting, which warranted the response of the FBI and President Nixon to plan for the destruction of the Black Panthers and the Black Power Movement. The Party eventually fell apart due to rising legal costs and internal disputes.

Racial Profiling Racism unfortunately has been a huge part of our nations history, and racial profiling stems from this racist history. “Racial profiling is the police practice of focusing on members of particular race groups for extra surveillance. The most common example of racial profiling is traffic stops of young, Black men, and it appears to be most commonly employed as a drug-trafficking interdiction strategy” (Glaser 2006, 396). Some law enforcement claim that racial profiling serves a legitimate purpose in protecting security, but in my opinion all it does is cause an unproportional amount of minorities; mainly Black males, to be incarcerated. Racial profiling does exist, and I believe is quite prevalent, whether it’s a Black male being pulled over for no apparent reason, or someone of Middle-Eastern descent being “randomly” checked at an airport, racial profiling is definitely used.
October 4, 2008 PAS 305 Midterm 1. Legal lynchings, a term used to describe how the American government was capable of prosecuting so many Africans within the United States. White Americans used the government in order to maintain white dominance in fear of black dominance or revolt. They created laws to ensure slavery, and constantly tried to instill fear into Africans. 2.
Staples emphasizes that “Black men have a firm place in New York mugging literature” which has been instilled by the dominant culture who act as victims by stating they recall “growing up in terror of black males” (465). Thus, otherness in society, in terms of color, is almost always looked down upon and perceived as dangerous where as the dominant culture is rarely looked as in such way. People of color are frequently accused of doing wrong even if they are clearly doing no such thing. In fact, Staples explains about an incident in which he was unreasonably accused of being a mugger at a jewelry store. Staples’ skin color immediately caused the “proprietor [to] excuse herself and return with an enormous red Doberman Pinscher” (291).
These ideals later served as the foundation for Black Nationalism and the Back Power movements. His approval of violence and militant stance against white society caused the U.S. Government to name him “the most dangerous man in America” (Mamiya, 2013). As a result the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) and the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) actively surveilled him until the time of his death.
