They will try and retaliate and burn and hurt those who do not believe in what they say such as the retaliation in Ferguson, Missouri and in New York. And the people who are burning buildings and stealing, killing or hurting other people are not even half of the people in Ferguson they are people from different States. Not only that but “Racial and ethnic minority perceptions that the police lack lawfulness and legitimacy, based largely on their interactions with the police, can lead to distrust of the police”. And if the community thinks that the officers are unlawful and racist and abusing their power then they will not want to interact or even call the police men when someone is being raped, killed or robbed to because they do not believe in the justice system. The community will greatly be affected because if they distrust the officers then they will take matters in their own hand and the congress would have to put them in quarantine and isolation statues for their behavior thus giving them a time when they can be outside and a time when they cannot be outside.
I also wonder if I am ever hostile during conversations about race or racism. I know when I first learned about white privilege, I had a very negative reaction and criticized the woman who was trying to introduce the topic. Eventually I dealt with the guilt and shame I felt that caused my anger about white privilege and still have to work with myself and my feelings constantly. I feel uncomfortable still, at times, during different discussions on racism. I have also seen my professors at this school avoid topics of social justice and have wonder why.
This is just one example of the media spinning things and stating opinions rather than facts. The true purpose of the Black Lives Matter movement is laid out explicitly on their website. (BlackLivesMatter.com) Not once do you see them promoting violence against businesses and or the police. Black Lives Matter can not control the actions of everyone and should not be persecuted for the actions of
(Airlines can say: You can’t wear that) There is definitely not a marketplace of ideas in America because many individuals here have actually been punished for... ... middle of paper ... ...that the truth is being exposed they do not want people to know, they drag the person to court. This is a waste of time and also an embarrassment. When the community like schools attempt to censor speech and teachers talk about things that educate their students and the school does not want them to hear it, they have them fired. Teachers have worked so hard for jobs that are not easy to get and end up getting fired for something so simple and this is ruining a life. Speech is not free in America, it needs to be removed from the First Amendment because people are punished everyday for their freedom of speech even if it is not affecting anyone or doing anyone harm.
They fear that if they speak out then they will be shunned for making things difficult for those who share their prejudice openly. In The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, written by Ursula K. Le Guin, this is demonstrated beautifully when a boy is kept away from society because he is different from all the others who live there. The people of the city refuse to bring the boy into society because “if it were done, in that day and hour all the prosperity and beauty and delight of Omelas would wither and be destroyed.” (Le Guin, p.971) Some of the people who have seen the boy, disagree with what the other citizens of Omelas are doing to him so they leave the city, and never look back. But, they leave without saying, or doing, anything to help the poor boy who is left behind to suffer in the discrimination of the town. This is also shown in the movie Quigley Down Under when a man, Quigley, is almost killed for defending the rights of Aborigine Indians in Australia.
E. D. Hirsch and Lisa Delpit are both theorist on teaching diverse students. Both of these theorist believe that when teaching diverse students, teachers need to see their students for who they are. Seeing your students for who they are, means you look past the color of your students’ skin and recognize their culture. According to Stubbs, when teachers look at their students equally, no matter the color of their skin, then the teacher is considered colorblind (2002). Being colorblind is not a great thing because we should not treat all of our students the same, since each student is different.
The outstanding critiques of this software creates an appealing route for many teachers to take in order to incorporate an engaging activity that abides by state and school curriculum standards. However what the critics do not inform teachers is this educational game is in reality spoon feeding students a dishonest account of history. The game takes on the white males view and neglects to account for gender and cultural biases that occur during this time period (Bigelow, 2009, p.319). By not pointing out the societal issues that occurred during this time period, students are really being done a disservice. There is no reason why instructors have to keep the fact that racism against minority groups and gender groups occurred, and still do.
It is a hearing". No, this would never be a criminal trial. It wasn't illegal to murder black slaves if there was good enough reason. Blacks didn't have human rights like the whites did. Laws weren't created to protect the black man; they were there for the well being of the white person.
In my classroom we will not be looking at dates, names, or Jeopardy facts, but we will be looking at the human experience. Students will be exploring their identity and the world they live in now. That is the importance of the social sciences. They help us see where the world is now and why. We often fear the social sciences because of dates and facts, but we forget their importance.
Although the teacher’s views clash with a student’s belief, there is no reason he or she should not be able to express them. This would create an environment that would allow students to express their individuality. For example, in the Tinker case students were suspended for wearing black armbands to protest the Vietnam War. How do you suspend someone for promoting world peace? Unless these students are going around campus and putting flyers and causing a riot then their is no need to suspend them.
