As an inspirational speaker, Martin Luther King Jr. traveled the country, giving speeches that motivated both blacks and whites to live in racial harmony. He always appeared positive, rational, and idealistic while preaching his views. All of these qualities are evident in King’s most quoted line —"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character". Malcolm X, however, was known as an extremist. For much of the time that he spent as an Islamic minister, he lectured about separatism between blacks and whites.
His father died when he was about 5 years old and his mother could not take care of him so she sent him and his siblings to an orphanage. The orphanage was a place of brutality where he was exposed to regular beatings and sadistic acts of brutality. As a form of punishment, his teacher would make the children strip down in front of the classroom where they would endure a beating. This is an act that would normally have a negative effect on a child, but Albert seemed to have enjoyed it. He began to get sexual pleasure from it and would get erections every time he was whipped.
This led to an extreme lack of racial pride for him. He strived to be white just like his classmates and when coupled with his troubled past, you can see why he ended up the way he did. After his father was killed, his mother went crazy and had to be institutionalized, leaving a young Malcolm Little to be put into foster care. Malcolm did not easily accept the social order he was living in due to experiences he had as a child. For example, his father was murdered when he was very young and his grandmother was raped.
Chapter four discusses in detail how Andrew Young played a significant role in improving relations with Africa and giving more attention to human rights. It shows how Young helped Carter with foreign policy and his great accomplishments that he does not receive enough credit for. In Chapter four DeRoche discusses how influential Young was after becoming appointed to U.S. ambassador to the United Nations by Carter. Carter chose Young to be UN ambassador because of his close personal connection with Martin Luther King during the civil rights movement. In Carter’s eyes this made him uniquely qualified for the job and gave him the credentials of what Carter wanted him to accomplish as ambassador.
Betrayal from the man in her life is the cause of her infection. On a recent episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah addressed this issue saying, “this hidden culture of men living a dangerous lie has ruined so many lives. It has broken up families and put so many women at risk.” But what is this “hidden culture of men?” In the mid 1990’s author E. Lynn Harris first shed light on bisexual black men who lead double lives. He gave a name to them, referring to them as men who live “on the down low,” or Down Low men. They are men who cheat on their wives and girlfriends by having sex with other men.
When parents say their concerns about banning the book it makes other people realize that maybe it should be banned, but they don't see the lesson being taught underneath all the demeaning language and situations in the novel. Parents should think deeper when they read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn since they are not thinking hard enough to see the literary worth of this novel to students. However, this novel should only be read by students who are in middle school and in high school because it gives the students a clear idea of what a good novel is. A novel that contains all literary worth and it can broaden their way of thinking about the real world. Also, something to consider about parents being concerned about this novel was probably the fact that they are scared of what the past contained.
Random student drug testing is also actually angering parents and caregivers. It is felt that the parenting role has been taken away from the actual parents and given to strangers. Drug testing is something that, if had to be given, should be given to a child from their parent rather than to a student by their administrator. The book says that the testing would be helpful because parents who learn about their child’s drug abuse would be likely so seek help for their problem (Book Source?). This may be true, but if the parents are concerned, they should be the ones to test them, not the
