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...

White Collar Crimes
Central Texas College
Dr. Bob Stephens
Welcome to the age of white collar crime. A time when the words thieves and businessmen go hand in hand. White collar criminals don’t get their hands dirty in their work. They use their heads to get what they want instead of using a little muscle. These criminals are just as dangerous as the rapists and murderers. In these times, even the most seemingly respectable people are suspected of white collar crimes. Like every other person in this world, when we hear the word crime; we automatically get an image of a person from a low class in a bad neighborhood and coming from a troubled family. However, who...

After I read this speech I found that Mr. Obama had used several ways to try and convince his audience. 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...

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....

Lying is ubiquitous. It is seen everywhere and it is truly an art form, it comes in many shapes and forms: white lies, doublespeak, and dismissal are some of many forms of lies. Whether lying is a positive or a negative thing is a question that many people have different views on. Humans are very selfish, everyone lives for themselves, everything someone does is something that is in their best interest. Whether you're a Politician, insurance salesman, a real-estate agent, or simply just an average Joe doing nothing special you're going to be lying countless times throughout your life to people you hate and love.

By: Alexis Couillard
In 2004, Paul Haggis directed the Oscar winning film crash, a drama about race and class and its effects on those residing in Los Angeles, California.

This film promotes racial awareness which is a topic not typically seen on the big screen and it demands a close inspection. Haggis wanted us to understand each character and to see them as real flesh bleeding humans that make mistakes and aren’t perfect. We...

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...

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...

M6 - ORIGINAL ASSIGNMENT
For over two hundred years, white males have been the most powerful group in the United States. Through economic exclusions, enforced by laws and reinforced by deep cultural attitudes, there has existed, in effect, a preferential hiring program for white males. In light of that historical reality and the dynamics that remain in our culture, evaluate the contemporary strategy of affirmative action for minorities to bring about more fairness in hiring and promotion practices. Draw heavily from the assigned readings and then explain and defend your arguments concerning affirmative action and "reverse discrimination."

First, we must understand the background of the author. I am a thirty-something white married male with two children. I was born in Florida, raised around the rural outskirts of the St. Louis area, moved to the “Big City” (inner-city) when newly married, and then fled to farm country when the inner-city crime became too much to bare to raise a family. When in the educational system, I wasn’t completely isolated from racial concerns. There was a black family with kids in grade school and a couple of black kids in high school. We thought we were high society, progressive “color-blind” people, though I can’t remember ever going to their houses, or seeing them outside of school, or even hanging...

When I look around in my community, I see people of all different races and cultures. In our community we have India, Hispanics, Blacks, Africans, White, and many more.

To start with we look at race, there are two ways of defining race one is that of an ethnical, tribal, or national stock or as any class or group, esp. of persons, considered as a class apart. Diversity is defined as essential differences or variety.
In the community I live in we treat people differently, they look at a person and think oh they look...

A Lesson before Dying
The church is a significant symbol of hope and contradiction in A Lesson before Dying. The contradiction of the church, situated in Henri Pichot’s plantation, commences with its owner’s reluctance to enhance the lives of the African Americans who reside in his plantation. Henri believes that that the African Americans ought to remain in their status as slaves regardless of the abolishment of the slavery institution (Piacentino 73-85). Henri, through the church, possesses considerable powers over the African Americans who utilize his property, and this illustrates the contradiction that is present in the lives of the African...

In the case of Florida State University, the school has developed a mascot (Chief Osceola) that portrays the American Indian as an aggressive savage. “When Osceola leads the FSU football players onto the field, he signifies armed resistance, bravery, and savagery, and his...

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...

Bimbo focuses on the tin loaf and industrial pastries sector.
The competition in this sector is oligopolistic due to the domination of two huge firms: Bimbo and Panrico. They both sell very similar products but they try to differentiate their goods in order to make them more attractive to the customers. Finally there are significant barriers to entry to the market and that’s why small firms have problems to enter, so the threat of new competitors is practically inexistent.
Bimbo is the unquestionable leader in the tin loaf industry; even most people popularly know the tin loaf as “pan Bimbo”. During the years the firm has taken over small brands and nowadays own almost 100 brands,such as...

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...

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.

Capital Punishment or as some people refer to it, the death penalty, is the legal process in which an accused is sentenced to death for their crimes.

I.- Why do people lie?
Everybody lies. It may only be “white” lies, but everyone tells lies or “omits the truth” sometimes. We start lying at around age 4 to 5 when children gain an awareness of the use and power of language. This first lying is not malicious, but rather to find out, or test, what can manipulated in a child’s environment. Eventually children begin to use lying to get out of trouble or get something they want. White lies, those concocted to protect someone’s feelings, are not a big deal at all. The person, however, who seems to feel compelled to lie about both the small and large stuff has a problem. We often call these folks pathological liars (which is a description, not a...

As we grow up we learn the difference between a bold faced lie, which always causes more damage than telling the truth, and a little white lie, which usually causes little to no harm. For example lying about stealing money from your dads’ wallet and blaming it on someone else is a bold faced lie and the other person usually faces consequences that they don’t deserve.
