rethink calling a person “black” and in this paper I will discuss the most important ones to me.
The first statement discusses how “black Americans carry one of the heaviest burden and even black children in particular, have to bare the question what it is meant to be black”. (Raspberry, 1982). A part of me agrees with this statement but another part of me feels that black Americans use this burden as a crutch. People make what they want to make out of their lives, if they want to us it as a crutch not to succeed then they will never succeed. It is all about a person’s desire to be an achiever. On the other hand I do feel that many times a person is labeled by their race. If this is

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

supplements. Together, the two health aid programs would deliver and transform black hair into the perceived vision of what beautiful, natural hair is expected to be.
While it may have taken a while to acknowledge, many South African women and men came to view themselves as beautiful people, and so did many Black Americans from around the world. And, because of this, Blacks began to fully evolve around the idea that they no longer had to exclude their ethnic identities (in the form of hair styles) to be accepted by others who were identified differently from themselves. This eventually led to somewhat of a hair revolution whereby Blacks sought to embrace hairstyles that fit their

a mother. “Some people became worried that because the women weren’t at home all the time, they thought that children might be being deprived of a parent. Social commentators said that because of this, women were in fact endangering the family by not being there for their children and husbands.” (Stoneham 2008).
It was a different story for black females in the 1950’s. They didn’t fight for the right to work in the work force, in fact they never even had a chance to fight in the first place. The fight that black females went through consisted of segregation, sexism, racism, and a right to be in America. It goes back to say that black females have it worse in America. How can a woman who

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

In the Intro to Afro-American Studies it states that, “Over 52% of all Black people in the United States are women. Women play a special role in bearing children and in the family, and increasingly are becoming sole heads of households. However, Black women face greater discrimination than any other group in this society - in income, in job opportunities, in education, in holding political office, and in other areas of social life.” The oppression and discrimination of black women have been going on years and show no sign of slowing down. Black women, like all women, faces sexism every day. As being a young women in America and knowing that I am automatically

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

. Fortunately with the passage of the 13th, 14th, and the 15th amendment, blacks were given citizenship and afforded the right to vote. These were steps in the right direction for African Americans.
While they were afforded the right to vote, the South still found ways to halt the advance of African American liberties. I don’t understand why there were laws designed to disfranchise black people. What I also don’t understand is why whites used the white female to defend lynching. Why couldn’t have been there more protections for the black female? White men exploited black women for years without widespread repercussions from black men. I did notice, however, that one thing white men feared of was miscegenation. Lynching evolved from vigilante justice to protection of the white woman.
I also tried wrapping my head around how the South revels for a lynching. A monstrous public display becomes an event where everyone partakes in the gruesome. I think it’s horrific that even little kids participate in the lynching.

. (Constitutional Rights Foundation, 2013). Once in America, slaves were auctioned off to owners, which often times punished them harshly. These auctions broke up families by selling off family members, however, slaves managed to develop a strong cultural identity.
The political, social, and cultural issue throughout American history is poor, black, and is an American. According to McCray (1994), “The repository for the culture of any people is the family, and in the African-American family resiliency, adaptability, and sheer strength are primarily responsible for this group's survival in an alien and hostile environment.

example if someone was to make the statement, a prison population that holds 100 inmates, out of those 100 inmates 75% of them where black inmates. One would quickly come to the conclusion that the justice system in this area is creating disparity of treatment towards the black population. But in actuality this is not the case. The area that the population was pulled from was an area that was predominantly black. This example would be the case of disparity not discrimination.
Disparity is not necessarily a choice; it’s what is in the focus area. One area in south may be harsher on burglaries and more lenient on drug related crimes. But on the surface in that area, more black people may be

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.

Thus sparking the creation of the Black Panther Party, this aimed to help black communities realize their true strength.

One possible cause of ethnic differences in education could be at the fault of the education system. To investigate this Sewell carried out a study using semi-structured interviews and observations in an inner-city boys’ comprehensive school. His study revealed the ways in which African-Caribbean students are labelled by their teachers, peers and white students as ‘problems’ in the classroom. Sewell showed how Black boys use these negative perceptions to construct different responses to school based on their own ‘masculine’ images. Many of these

Comedy is funny when the act is unexpected. For example, a woman buys a white coat and approaches a wet black bench. "Look out!" yells a zoo keeper. " Oh, thanks," says the woman, "I almost sat on that." Then an escaped lion leaps in from the side and bashes her.
