William Raspberry is from a small segregated town in Mississippi, he left this small town to take a job as a reporter. I do believe that his home town plays a big factor in how he feels about the black Americans being referred to as “black”. He has some really great points of view on the subject and how it affects the black children. There are certain images that come to mind when a person refers to a person as black. As I reflect on the article “The Handicap of Definition”, I am reminded of the town where I grew up, it was a small hick town but over half the population was black Americans. There are several statements made in this article that would make any person...

Black Helicopters, fact or fiction?
Imagine discovering a tiny helicopter living inside you and feeding off your nutrients, sounds impossible right? Wrong. According the theory The New World Order (NWO) has created a microscopic fully-functioning helicopter via biotechnology in attempts to take over the world. Many people defend the theory of these “Black Helicopters”.
Not much is known about Black Helicopters. What we do know is they are autonomous agents –life forms- created by the NWO. Using Biotechnology the NWO has successfully created life forms modeled after helicopters. They appear to exhibit intelligent behavior and adaptive problem solving skills.
It has been reported that...

Slavery by another name and modern context
Slavery by another name is a documentary by Douglas A. Blackmon in which the American slave history has been narrated. In the video, it has narrated that freedom is one of the keen and basic rights of every human being. The American history has a dark period in which to be a black person is a crime. Firstly African Americans were enslaved by the white people in the start of the eighteenth century and a tiny amount of elite white people enslaved almost 4 million slaves and they are punished and lynched in the Alabama state. As the resolution passed, black people were given freedom and in 1870 they were awarded with equal citizenship and given by the...

African American woman as you all know have it the worst in this country that we live in. The United States of America has downgraded blacks in general from when the first African slaves were force into the North American colony of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619 to social inequality today. At the same rate, so did females, blacks harsher than whites. Females faced sexism everywhere they went. Females were portrayed to be just housewives sitting at home watching the kids and cooking dinner. As it’s bluntly known, due to the fact that black women had to fight for both racism and sexism, black woman in America have it worse. For a long time America had...

The logos messages were very clear to me that no man is portrayed by just a few people that are involved in a person’s life you need to look beyond those people and see each person as an individual. The ethos perception was very well done as well his preacher had a very negative sermon that everyone associated with Mr. Obama then he condemned the negative sermon stating that if we keep living in the past we will never move forward as a whole nation together like the constitution of America clearly states everyone has the same...

In event that was rather a stir up in the 1920’s was the Harlem Renaissance. The Harlem Renaissance was a time when African Americans all around showcased their artistic talents, showing the whites that they did indeed have talent. Obviously after the name “The Harlem Renaissance” was based in Harlem, New York.
The Harlem Renaissance was a movement of writers, artist, actors, musicians, and poets of color expressing themselves through their talents. They used these talents not only to express themselves but also to tell stories of their past and the troubles the black people faced as a whole. This movement brought together so many African Americans. Not only that but it showed the white...

I believe that Ntozake Shange’s message in her series of poems was to show how the power of black women is very important to remember and it expresses the struggles and obstacles that African America women face throughout their life. Ntozake also showed that the value of friendship is very important. The bond between the ladies shows that friendships can prove comfort and stability during rough times in their lives. They confront their feelings about race showing that they can still be strong, beautiful women.
The quote, “bein alive and bein a women and bein colored is a metaphysical dilemma, I haven’t conquered yet” (Shange 59), the women is being blatantly honest...

Based on the history of prison labor in 20th century U.S. South, should local governments be allowed to privatize incarceration in their individual states? According to theologian James Crone and legal scholar Michelle Alexander, what are the socio-cultural ramifications of such actions?
Back in the late 1800’s blacks were dehumanized and were made a mockery. James Crone, in his book, talks about how blacks or people of color would be lynched or would be threatened to be lynched just for walking the wrong way or giving a wrong look. The superior whites would hold events to watch a black man be...

Strange Fruit: An Overview of Lynching in America
The article presented a definitive overview of lynching in America. Much of the reasoning behind lynching is very crude. It is shocking to learn that majority of lynchings occurred for absolutely no reason. I wish there was an effective way to protect African Americans from this horrific punishment. Unfortunately, it took decades to spread awareness of the violence. I don’t understand why it was necessary to intimidate African Americans.
For whites to take justice into their own hands removes their respect from the legal system. If a black person committed a crime then he should be afforded the same due process as his white counterpart....

During the mid-1500’s, European mariners started bringing African people to America as slaves. These individuals were forced in this movement from one area to another, over long distances or in large groups to be slaves. At this time slaves were traded, with that the slave trade was not new to Europe or Africa. These slaves were traded during the eighth century by Moorish merchants as merchandise throughout the Mediterranean. The West African people kept slaves. West African slaves were usually prisoners of war, criminals, or the lowest-ranked members based on their birth....

There is no hiding the fact that both disparity and discrimination are alive and well in the criminal justice field. When reading the words disparity and discrimination, at first glance one might think of them being the same. When we take a closer look at the two the definitions when it pertains to the criminal justice system, they become quite different. It is an important task to identify the two definitions in the criminal justice system, and have an open mind to the cause of disparity rather than to assume discrimination.
The first thing we must do is define both disparity and discrimination. Disparity is defined as lack of similarity or equality toward a group of people. For...

The events that occurred in Montgomery were triggered by one individual, Rosa Parks. This woman refused to give her seat to a white man, in doing so caused her arrest, but also caused the Montgomery bus Boycott, which was of massive significance to the civil rights movement.
When Rosa Parks had been arrested, The NAACP and the black Alabama State College helped to free her, encouraged by others; this caused students to copy and distribute propaganda leaflets around the community, in addition, gaining total support from the black community. The NAACP believed that by involving the church, this would add to the support they need for this cause, due to this, they involved church leaders,...

William Shakespeare`s Othello is a play set in Venice. The plot is based on a story about two people who love each other dearly and the problems and conflicts they face from the start. The conflicts are, for the most part, tied in with racial issues and questions of race and loyalty. These conflicts stem from the society around the couple, as well as from the couple themselves as they too are part of this society, but with very different backgrounds: The female protagonist is the daughter of a highly-respected Venetian senator Brabantio. Othello also known as the Moor--is a foreigner, black in color, has a...

Sociological research has challenged the view that ethnic differences in achievement reflect innate differences of intelligence and ability; this has become a view that very few sociologists now put forward. Ethnicity refers to the shared cultural traditions and history, which are distinct from other groups in society. The level of achievement of different ethnic groups varies. This may be due to factors such as home background, class, language and in-school factors. Recent studies highlight the effects of racism. Ethnicity influences factors that lead to an impact on education.
There are many reasons for educational underachievement and it has been said that ethnicity is one of these...

Yes and no because a person thinks of something in a certain way but inside not

there on ways in society. For example, a white person can see a black person and
the automatic mind will be negative towards the black person. For implicit
attitude a white person may not be racist and may have friends that are black and
hangs out with them, but inside he doesn’t realize that he has a more negative

Progression of black rights during 1945-1955 can be clearly seen but was a long and slow process, although the awareness of racial equality dramatically increased. Various factors were involved. Factors such as: presidential involvement and the use of media post WW2.We also see improvements in education and NAACP. More importantly how the NAACP and southern states responded to these factors, later shaping the result to black civil rights. During this time America saw two presidents come to power: Harry S. Truman (1945-1953) and Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961). Both of which affected the civil rights movements in different ways.
Truman who was vice president to Roosevelt was elected...

How significant was the Montgomery Bus Boycott in advancing the civil rights movement?
The Montgomery bus boycott of December 1955 influenced a continuous boycott that inspired many individuals and groups to stand up against public transport segregation in order to quicken the pace, and also the likelihood of bus boycotts having a strong impact on the advancement of the civil rights movement. Rosa Parks was the main culprit behind the boycott as it was her decision to refuse to move seats after requested by the driver several times. However, as she evidently declined, it created an uproar of boycotts, and others began to see how blatant discrimination and racism against black Americans was...

An individual’s conception of societal norms and beliefs is developed over time through the observation of and interaction with others. In modern times, one might come to understand feminine beauty as thin rather than voluptuous through exposure to the magazines, television and other media outlets that display images of “beautiful” thin models. Simply because a belief is widespread does not make it true or moral; the exclusive portrayal of the thin woman as beautiful is an extremely narrow definition of beauty that is far from true and may be very damaging: it can negatively impact...

Something is funny when it’s both expected and unexpected. Something is funny when it’s familiar and unfamiliar. There are various types of comedy including irony, sarcasm, parody, spoof and many more. Irony is where the opposite of what is expected happens or where someone says the opposite of what they mean, while sarcasm is where an insult or quick remark is fired at someone with the intention of causing injury.

In a short amount of time, King covered an incredible amount of ground while proposing so much, and voicing his dreams for the future. In 1963, Dr. King had the hopes that blacks would be able to join the forces of whites, throughout all aspects of society, not only as friends but brothers. He had a dream that one day public transportation systems, water fountains, schools, benches would no longer be segregated; that blacks and whites could be among each other with equal equality. He had a dream that one day blacks would be able to have that American opportunity...

The civil rights movement was a worldwide political movement for equality before the law occurring between approximately 1950 and 1980. In many situations it took the form of campaigns of civil resistance aimed at achieving change by nonviolent forms of resistance. In some situations it was accompanied, or followed, by civil unrest and armed rebellion. The process was long and tenuous in many countries, and many of these movements did not fully achieve their goals although, the efforts of these movements did lead to improvements in the legal rights of previously oppressed groups of people.

Was little rock nine more of a failure than a success for the civil rights?
One could argue that the little rock nine was a complete failure for the civil rights because, although the federal law about education had been legally changed, the reality was that the state governments were finding ways to get around the integration of the black children. Mostly the southern states found ways to rig the system to prevent as little integration as possible. They made it compulsory for the black children to have criteria like character and health for them to get into the school. This got rid of about 75to25 applicants. Then they tried to convince the rest of the remaining applicants not to continue...

Prince Duplex, Sr. was one of nearly 300 men of African descent to enlist in the Connecticut militia during the Revolutionary War, and Oscar Marion, a slave on the South Carolina plantation of war hero General Francis Marion, fought side by side with his master, also serving as "personal assistant, bodyguard, sous-chef, bugler, courier, confidant, and oarsman."
