Together with local community leaders, King produced and distributed nearly 7,000 leaflets persuading blacks to completely avoid riding to buses work, town, school, or elsewhere. Instead, people should take cabs, carpool, or walk. King was worried that the boycott was unethical, would turn violent, or would intimidate blacks However the boycott was succsessful with nearly 100% participation... ... middle of paper ... ...not yet become a total reality. African Americans have gained some social equality, however; blacks have not been fully recognized as an accepted group of people in the American society. Also, African Americans continue to struggle against stereotypes placed upon them because of the poverty in the inner cities.
In order for them to achieve this, the white southerners came up with the Jim Crow laws to prevent the African Americans from achieving their god given right of being free and equal. This did not end the African hope of becoming equal. After many years of mistreatment, African Americans knew that change in society was necessary. The members of the black population have been enslaved, beaten, abused, neglected and just taken advantage of, since the end of the civil war, even into present times, African Americans have struggled for equality and rights that white Americans often take for granted. Arguably, no post-war struggle was larger or more significant than the movement to eliminate the Jim Crow laws from existence in the South.
On March 29, 1973, after 60,000 Americans were killed and $109 billion was spent on a war that many believed should not have been fought; American combat troops left South Vietnam. These three social revolutions were among many helping to develop the age of reform. Many men and women gave their lives for various reasons and others put themselves in very dangerous positions to help achieve what they believed to be a better nation. For better or worse, the face of the nation is changed from this de
African Americans moved into the city and accounted for 71% of the population. What began as a conflict between whites and blacks now became an intraracial problem between African Americans themselves. Fights between the West Side of Los Angeles and the East Side were mostly socioeconomic based. The gangs from the Westside fought to prove their toughness and credibility, while Eastside gangs fought because they were viewed as economically inferior to the Westside. Black community leaders began to see a problem with the African American youth and began to educate and promote social welfare amongst the community.
As mentioned, firstly let's discuss Civil Right Movement. Civil Right Movement is a large group march to make sure black Americans have equivalent chances for primary benefits and also entitlements for being americans (scholastic.com).People who opposed social racism on would do Civil Right Movement to show their opinion and ... ... middle of paper ... ...reased a lot after the Civil Right Movement. The racism on black American was not that common to see anymore after the Civil Right movement, which shows a good example of protests to government, there were really a lot of people who suffered through all the pains when laws and ruling were not fair. I think that we should study and observe what happened in the past so that we will never repeat the same mistakes, which the governments of United State or even other countries that supported racism, again. We should learn to respect every single person in this world no matter he is white or black and treated everybody equally based on his (her) personalities, but not his (her) skin color.
Culture and Music of the 70's Music is an outlet to all aspects of life and culture is a significant way of forming people and the way they live. Although not always seen directly culture has an overbearing influence on the music that is produced and made popular. The political Climate of the early seventies was full of fire with issues such as Vietnam and constant protest throughout the county. Later in the 70’s the end of the Vietnamese conflict brought the rise of the Watergate scandal and Iran Contra. These issues swept headlines and ingrained people’s thoughts.
The emergence of television was a source of entertainment and information, where advertising was very influential to all age groups of the time. The late 60’s was a period where long held values and norms were challenged to the extent of changing the way the world interpreted life. This revolution was definitely one for the media to capture in every way possible through music, television, film, and written forms such as magazines. By the late sixties FM radio had replaced AM radio as the focal points being Rock and Roll music, then into the seventies psychedel... ... middle of paper ... ...ages. Magazines like rolling stone embraced and reported on the hippy counterculture during the late nineteen sixties and seventies and its rise to fame was successful due to such bands and artists as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix.
The Jim Crow laws had made efficient work in separating the Blacks from the Whites in society, and it took the Civil Rights movement in 1964 to finally bring more equality to the African-American society. However, the Ku Klux Klan and still other organizations had existed and continue to exist despite efforts to bring equality. There is a strong social equality for the Black population in America today, but because of hate organizations and discrimination still existing today, black lives are being lost through murder, and even in forms of police brutality. Take for example the L.A riots in 1992 from the beating of Rodney King, or going back to 1967 the Detroit riots which tore apart these cities. Today Black Lives Matter movements exist to crush out racism in society so people no longer have to live in fear, and it is an existing movement that I think will actually fade as generations in the future work to build up society, and racism will become a thing of a past.
After being freed from slavery, the blacks thought they had achieved their freedom, but soon realized that was only the beginning. During the Civil Rights Movement, racism began to play a large role in how the blacks were treated. They were segregated and discriminated against causing racial violence to stir up and add to the many other problems the blacks faced on a daily basis. It took several years before the blacks would take a stand and fight for their rights, but until then, they continued to face suppression. Around 1876, Jim Crow Laws came into effect and demonstrated a system of segregation which separated the blacks and whites, primarily in public facilit... ... middle of paper ... ...ivil Rights Movement, a large social movement, paved the way for changes in black freedom and how the blacks would be viewed.
All in all, every year since 1975, Vietnamese have been killed or injured and they are so disappointed. The war causes chaos and is a sign of bad omen to Vietnam. This never-ending horror could be remedied if enough Americans cared about saving Vietnamese lives, as the stars of this documentary claim they did. After all, what kind of people seed a foreign land with hundreds of thousands of tons of explosives and then allow succeeding generations to lose eyes and limbs and lives? Only a “violent and unforgiving”
