In America in the 1920's there was an illusion of freedom - but some people were more free than others and this depended on race, social class and political belief. There was a big divide between rich and poor and this was further exagerrated by the divide between the urban and rural populations. The smaller farmers suffered from low income. The government did nothing to help, as it was Republican and believed in not interfering with American peoples lives. This ties in with the idea of economic freedom - the ru ...

On The Rez By Ian Frazier - 966 words
When signing up for this course I thought I would discuss and learn about many different cultures and compare them. However, I did not know that the main concentration of this course would be talking about my culture. My mother is American Black and my father, whom I very seldom speak to, is African American and half Native American. Being so distant in relationship with my father I have never had the chance to learn about my other side. In the book On the Rez, author Ian Frazier displays a style of writing that is very different to me. I am personally more of a John Grisham or Sue Grafton, fiction/mystery type of reader, but here I am forced to concentrate on the situation and not just the ...

Mahatmagandhi As A Modern Day Hero - 330 words
Hero-a person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life. A great example of a modern day hero would have to be Mahatma-Gandhi.

Gandhi - 913 words
When asking a person who their hero is one might start pulling names of superheroes out of comic books. To most teenagers, heroes have to have the ability to fly, see through walls, stop a train with their bare hands, or save the world with their superhuman powers. There is a man, however, who exhibits none of these characteristics but is still considered a hero to most people. Such a man is Mohandas Gandhi. Heroes do not always have to be shown wearing a cape or costume. Instead, true heroism comes from your good virtues and wisdom. With his courage Gandhi stood up for his peoples rights against British control. During the times when Britain took over, the Indians rights were limited and th ...

Indian Boarding School - 1,596 words
Compressed emotions," that is the explanation a teacher once gave to the ongoing question, "What is poetry?" He said it was someone's deepest emotions, as if you were reading them right out of that person's mind, which in that case would not consist of any words at all. If someone tells you a story, it is usually like a shell. Rarely are all of the deepest and most personal emotions revealed effectively. A poem of that story would be like the inside of the shell. It personifies situations, and symbolizes and compares emotions with other things in life. Louise Erdrich's poem Indian Boarding School puts the emotions of a person or group of people in a setting around a railroad track. The feeli ...

The English Role In The Pe' War - 2,545 words
... in Plymouth were enslaved, but Hirsch brings together a number of pieces of documentary evidence to show that they were enslaved for life, and some were sent to colonial prisons. Roger Williams' proposal of late June, 1637, that "such Pequts as fall to them be not enslaved, like those which are taken in warr" was apparently not taken.

Katz does an effective job of demolishing Francis Jennings' arguments in The Invasion of America that extermination was the intent of the war, pointing out that Jennings "proves" his position by a highly selective reading of the primary doc ...
