I haven’t had a good rant in a while, and now seems to be a perfectly good time for one. I don’t think in his heart, Trump is a racist – he might be a misogynist – but not a true racist. I do think his was, and is, unprepared for the rigors of being the President of the United States of America. I also believe he is a coward because speak out against inequity but fuels the fire with “Building Walls” and now the repeal of DACA. I just taught a class today, 95 percent Hispanic, and many of these students use DACA to get an education and stay in this country. I have talked to many of these students, and not one of them came over on their own when they were one or two-years of age, but all came here with the parents who were fleeing economic degradation in Mexico – NAFTA – to find a better life. They, and their families, work and pay taxes, buy goods, support our local economy, want to get an education, and want to become citizens, but the process is too expensive, and time consuming. They are just as American as you and me. I had a student, who was undocumented, came over when he was one, but didn’t qualify for the Dream Act, so he worked, and put himself through Community College two classes at a time. I asked him why he doesn’t become a citizen (I had just started moved to California, so this was all new to me). He said he wanted too, but the only way he could do so was to go back to Mexico for ten-years. “My family left because of the cartels,” he said in tears, “I

Around the world there is so racism so going on, people who are different are so getting target by the white man. We believe that racism is completing gone but it's not. Racism is coming back slowly as the years pass us. The only thing that we can do is to keep our bodies safe from all the danger that might happen. Ta-Nehisi Coates has been talking about keeping our bodies safe protected from the danger that happening around the world. People are getting targeted for being different or not being accepted for who they are as humans.
Imagine your son going out to the real world he has a kid and a wife then there's a knock on the door and you look thru the peephole and the cops and their heads are down and you're confused you open the door and they tell you “Ma’am your son has died”,and you say how they say he has been gunned down by an officer and you know your son was unarmed and you're confused because your son has nevered been doing something bad.This and every day thing you see to african american some are innocent and unarmed and they get shot by police because they say they were fighting back or they were about to pull out a gun and this happens everywhere and police brutality happens every state and everywhere and it mostly happens to african american and other races.
“ I first got to the United States when I was 5 years old. The only memory of Mexico I have is the small corner of the house that I lived in with my grandpa, that's it. I grew up in the United States. This is my home. Upon hearing the news of Trump ending DACA I was really scared and upset, I've worked really hard to be where I am right now and now that can just be taken away at any moment. How is that fair to me or any other person that was brought into this country illegally? My parents made that decision for me; I had no say so.”
I am sure that everyone of you have heard about aliens and UFOs. Indeed, we all have heard about the famous case of aliens and UFOs in Roswell, New Mexico. Most people might be interested in the topic of aliens, but I know that the majority of you just think of it as rumours and the existence of them are impossible. Therefore, I am standing here in front all of you to make you change your perspective. I am strongly confident that I have found the evidence of their real existence to convince all of you.
As a child, I’m sure almost all of us have had mini class field trips to the library. We go in and pick the brightest, visually appealing, eye-catching book cover and convince ourselves that the deceiving beauty we see on the outside, will certainly define the content inside of the book. We avoid picking the books that are simple with fewer pictures and have pages that are either colored on by our naughty little selves or aren’t attractive enough for our seven year old minds, and simply toss the book back onto the shelf without even bothering to read the content that it holds inside. The librarian notices and tells us the seven-word response that we as kids forget: Don’t judge a book by its cover. We carry on those seven words every library visit but we forget to use them even in real life situations as adults. Racial profiling is targeting a person based on a stereotype about their race. To convey my position in this speech, I believe Racial profiling is morally incorrect. Racial profiling sends a straight forward message to all individuals that judgment on criminal felony is based on pure skin color; it violates the fourteenth amendment; and it also leads to racially - motivated violence. For all these reasons, I stand against the act of racial profiling due to the negative effects it holds in our society.
Our country is supposed to be one about opportunity, neglecting to provide an equal chance for these children to learn would contradict the notion that America is the land of opportunity.
Since the new Donald J. Trump took office in the white house we have been seeing tension between people of color and whites. This tension has escalated ever since, manifesting in various forms, most notably would be police brutality and the “Black Lives Matter” movement. Trump claims to not be racist but his words, ideals and actions say otherwise. Trump held a rally in Huntsville, Alabama on September 22nd to endorse Luther Strange for on the primary election. What began as an already bad endorsement speech worsened very quickly as it turned into a ramble about about National Football League players “disrespecting” our veterans sacrifices, our flag and our country by taking a knee during the national anthem. This is a very bold claim coming from a president, then again, you never know what you are going to get with an individual like Trump. Trump’s assertion that NFL players are disrespecting our country by kneeling is a hypocrite claim. NFL players are not disrespecting our flag, they are protesting racial injustice; moreover, they are exercising their first amendment right of free speech, and if anyone has disrespected our country that would be Mr. President himself.
In regard to the defunding of DACA, I am truly against the act that the Trump administration is trying to enforce on ending all of these children’s futures and throwing them out of this beloved country for no logical reasoning besides politics. Everything written by the Education Board in the article titled “Donald Trump’s Cowardice on Dreamers,” I completely agree with. I believe what the Trump administration is doing is an enormous leap backwards for this country and its “progress” in the past couple decades regarding immigration. Again, my parents immigrated to this land 16 years ago and brought me along, I feel a personal connection to this awful political decision in the making. Due to how I know the struggles my dad went through to bring his family here and give us all a better life than we would’ve had living back home, I feel an obligation to speak up and against this decision in the making.
. Illegal immigrants who come over and don't even try to get citizenship are looked down upon and are disliked by many. This essay is about how to stop illegal immigration. On a personal account it is also about the way that they do things and the things that they take away from millions of Americans each year. For example, would a business owner want to hire someone who wants minimum wage and wants other things, or would that business owner want to hire someone that would take whatever they can, even if it was dishonest and unfair. As difficult as it is to say this, most business owners would rather hire an illegal immigrant for their jobs and be dishonest, rather than hire someone who has their citizenship and can stand up for their rights, and confront somebody when they do wrong. Illegal immigrants will get whatever they can, even if that means being paid a dishonest price. As said on CSMonitor.com, Illegal immigrants believe that our laws will not be enforced. Mexican immigrants make up about half of the nation's 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants. That is unacceptable. The citizens of this beautiful country are paying for them to stay here day after day. Between the years of 2000 and 2012 there was a 31.2 percent increase in the foreign born population. Many will say that what President Trump is doing is unfair, while some of that talk may be true, President Trump is thinking about America
First of all, if you’ve never seen a racewalking competition, go to Youtube right now and look it up. It is incredibly funny and the participants look as though they are in dire need of the toilet. Or you could say they look like New York City commuters trying to catch the last bus out of the city. With that being said, I definitely think the U.S. will take home a medal in racewalking this summer. Many of us do it as part of our routine, everyday life already -- walking fast is in our blood. Tell us we’ll get a medal for walking quickly and we’ll put even more pep in our step. Whether we Americans want to be in the front of the line at the buffet, be the first ones to get our hands on the best Black Friday deals or navigate our way through a crowded city, we often walk with determination, and this societal instinct will translate easily to the racewalking course. Plus, America dominates at every Olympics, so it’s just natural that we win a medal in this event, too.
How can you said “it is to laugh!” when some white man is cursing negroes, don’t you remember your black too. Would it be funny if a white person comes and curses us ( Ma, Charlie and me)? I don’t think so. Its like I don’t know you anymore. What have they turned you into? I recall that when you were a young boy, you used to stand up for us in school. You always protected Charlie and me from anyone. And now you have turned into a cold-hearted person just like them. Also, you used to be proud of the race and color you were born with.
Some folks say and support “Black Lives” and others, “All Lives”. As time go on, things take a turn ‘for the worse’. The ‘turn for the worse’ is due to the mindset of many people and the mass media. With time should come justice, peace and common ground on what is happening, but what if no one is supportive or have no knowledge of what is to come? The saying of “All Lives Matter” is deleterious and ruinous to the “Black Lives Matter” movement and support and to the black community by deteriorating their beliefs, livelihood, and mentality.
For centuries a disease has plagued our nation just like AIDS has Africa, I bet you all are wondering what this disease is. You probably think that it can be treated with limited breakouts every few years. The virus I'm talking about is racism. Imagine living every day in fear knowing that where ever you go, everything you do is being observed and judged. Imagine walking into a store or a boutique and having someone watch every move of yours thinking that you’re going to steal something, or expose a bomb from under your clothes. Imagine being mocked and hated at school because you're "different". Imagine being left out because of your skin colour. No one enjoys being left out, but then, why do people judge? Why do people set a fire of
Don’t be racist, be PewDiePie. He is Swedish, looks American, lives in the UK, has an Italian girlfriend, and likes Mexican candy. The U.S. is no longer as racist as it used to be, as 200 years ago, you were likely a slave because of your skin color. However, today many Americans are being racist to Asians in a new way: stereotyping. Hello, I’m Dexter Chen, and today I will be discussing why you shouldn’t stereotype Asians because stereotypes aren’t true, are extremely discouraging, and because stereotyping is offensive in general. Before we get into this topic, let me explain what stereotyping is. Stereotyping is judging a group, religion, ethnicity, or even gender, although these stereotypes might not reflect on reality. This is caused by social media, the human tendency to reduce complex things to simple things, and prejudice. You might be thinking to yourself: Gee, how is stereotyping offensive? It’s just a playful way of describing someone! If you are thinking that doubtful thought, then pay attention, because I will show you why you shouldn’t stereotype anyone, especially Asians.
