Why Did The League Fail In The 1930s - 988 words
The League of Nations had been a partially successful organization in the 1920s. During the 1930s the situation became worst, and the League had been bypassed and ignored by powerful nations. The long term and short term weaknesses of the League had been exposed. The League had depended on Britain and France for support in times of crisis. However neither France nor Britain was willing to abandon their self-interests, and spend more of their time supporting the League. During the 1930s, it became a known fact that Britain and France had other priorities. Throughout the existence of the League, it always had a problem with its members. Germany had not been allowed to join until 1926 because o ...

The Nhl Promotes Violence In The League Instead Of Hockey - 1,412 words
During the 2002 Winter Olympics, the hockey games were fast-paced, exciting, and full of tension and well-coordinated offensive plays. And as I was watching these games it readily became apparent to me that the reason the players were focusing entirely on their skill was that none of them were approaching the aggressive type of playing they had during the regular NHL season. Crosschecking against the boards was rare; penalties tended to be even rarer, and throughout the entire Olympics there were no fights. The Olympics play contrasts to todays NHL, where people are frequently crosschecked and injured, penalties are frequent, and rarely do teams get through a game without at least one fight. ...

Violence And Fighting In The National Hockey League - 841 words
Fights dont just break out. Everything happens for a reason, including two guys trying to bash the others brain in. The most obvious is when someone on the other hockey team takes a cheap shot at one of the star players. Some nights you can actually feel a fight brewing, almost from the opening face-off. Both teams are running at each other, and its just a matter of time before fists and elbows start flying. A lot of times, fighting is a true game tactic. The Chicago Blackhawks star enforcer, Bob Probert has been labeled as a tough guy. He is used as a weapon to get his team back into the game. When the team is down a couple of goals, he is sent out to cause spark and get the crowd back into ...

Cival Rights Act 1964 - 1,990 words
When the Government Stood Up For Civil Rights "All my life I've been sick and tired, and now I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired. No one can honestly say Negroes are satisfied. We've only been patient, but how much more patience can we have?" Mrs. Hamer said these words in 1964, a month and a day before the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 would be signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. She speaks for the mood of a race, a race that for centuries has built the nation of America, literally, with blood, sweat, and passive acceptance. She speaks for black Americans who have been second class citizens in their own home too long. She speaks for the race that would be patient ...

World War Two was a terrible and destructive war. Although many dynamics led to the advent of World War Two, the catalyst of the Second World War was actually the aftermath of the First World War. The First World War's aftermath set the stage for the rise of Hitler. On Nov. 11, 1918, an armistice was signed by the German commanders in the railcar of the French commander, Ferdinand Foch, ending the actual combat of World War One. The debacle of the First World War, which killed between 10 to 13 million people, demanded retribution. The Allies needed to draw up a treaty which formally ended hostilities between the Allies and the Central Powers. This treaty, which was called the Treaty of Versa ...

Lynchings In America - 837 words

Though most people think only African Americans were victims of lynchings, during those years, about 25% were white.

Road To Brown - 656 words
The Road to Brown was lead by a man named Charles Houston. Houston devoted his entire life to try and get equal treatment for blacks. But in order to begin the road to equality, a previous decision, Plessy v. Ferguson, which gave the separate but equal clause, had to be overturned. This was eventually accomplished in the Supreme Court decision of Brown v. the Board of Education. Brown v. the Board of Education was the result of many court decisions and developments in Civil Rights prior to 1954. Many developments in the area of Civil Rights helped contribute to the end of separate but equal. In 1947 Jackie Robinson integrated baseball by becoming the first black to play in the major league. ...
