Friday The movie Friday is a comedy, but it also depicts many important social issues. The story is set in the city of Los Angelos, California, in what could be called a high class ghetto. The main theme of the movie is about a young black man who looses his job and is influenced by his best friend to smoke marijuana. The movie also shows the relationships of his family and other members of his neighborhood. With a zany cast of characters and a hilarious script this movie touches on everything f

The africanamerican struggle for civil rights
the africanamerican struggle for civil rights In a Democracy the majority does not need any protection, because it is the majority which has control. However, as seen through history, even majorities can be tyrannical, and the minority needs protection from them. Civil rights is the term used when speaking of the privileges, immunities, and practices of freedom which are protected from violation by other citizens. That is the definition of civil rights, although when most people think of civil

The markets within the economy provide profit-motivated companies endless potential in the pursuance of pecuniary accumulation.

Death of Outrage William J. Bennett, secretary of education and chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities under President Reagan captured the public imagination with the best-selling Book of Virtues, a compendium of other people\'s writing that had something to teach about morality. In his new book, Bennett advances his own credo of right and wrong, and it is far less compelling. It is a slim book with a correspondingly slim premise: that the American public\'s failure to be outraged at
Capital Punishment
Capital Punishment
Capital Punishment Capital punishment is the lawful infliction of the death penalty and since ancient times it has been used to punish a wide variety of offenses. The Bible prescribes death for murder and many other crimes such as kidnapping and witchcraft. Major felonies carry the death penalty and some of these felonies are treason, murder, larceny, burglary, rape, and arson. In the 1800\'s however, England enacted many new capital offenses, and hundreds of persons were being sentenced to deat

The common arguments for the death penalty are filled with holes. Imposing the death penalty is expensive and time consuming. Each year billions of dollars are spent to sentence criminals to death. Perhaps the most frequently raised argument against capital punishment is that of its cost. Other thoughts on the death penalty are to turn criminals away fro

In other words, any inequality between genders must be explained and justified, in order for it to be accepted by the liberal feminists.

Such theories state that all forms of social domination or authority must be justified, according to the textbook. Liberal

The Emancipation Proclamation gave freedom to blacks from slavery in the 1800\'s and women were given the freedoms reserved for males in the early 1900\'s with the women\'s suffrage movement. But everyone still knows the underlying feeling of nation in dealing with minorities and women, one of contempt and disgust. Hate crimes

Different beliefs, different cultures, different skin color, all of these act like building blocks to help construct what we know as Racism. Racism is a part of each and every one of us. No doubt, we are all racist, but the term racism has been used too loosely. Racism has been mutated to such an extent that it could be a reason for war or rioting, a symbol of terrorism, and

Though the canal itself was not built until the early 1900s every step toward the building and ownership, was saturated with difficulty. Walter LaFeber illustrates the dilemm

As "the world\'s oldest profession," concerned with buying and selling something as "natural" and "unchanging" as sex, it might seem to have no history. However, prostitution is subject to historical change and is shaped by the society in which it exists. In the United States, over the last couple hundred years, the nature of prostitution and the experiences of people working as prosti

Gay Rights Speech Prejudice against homosexuals is like warfare, in which there is no shelter and everyone is involved. The problem with prejudice and hate crimes is that many people are unaware of what they are. Many people today are disgusted with the concept of slavery and racism towards blacks. But one notion that people fail to comprehend is that they are emulating the puritan’s straightlaced beliefs and are prejudice against gays and lesbians. Many people are oblivious of the laws that pro

Abortion Almost half of American women have terminated at least one pregnancy, and millions more Americans of both sexes have helped them, as partners, parents, health-care workers, counselors, friends. Collectively, it would seem, Americans have quite a bit of knowledge and experience of abortion. Yet the debate over legal abortion is curiously abstract: we might be discussing brain transplants. Farfetched analogies abound: abortion is like the Holocaust, or slavery; denial of abortion is like

How Scottish families have changed in the last 100 years Perhaps the area that has changed the most for Scottish women in the last century is the family and the home. In the first half of the century the norm was for the woman of the house to "service" the male breadwinners within the home and family and to reproduce as their primary roles in life. This included many tasks including preparing meals for the whole family, looking after the family budget (It was usual for the husband to give his wi

In 1980 there were nearly 21 million union members; that number had declined to 17 million by 1985. The most important “aspect” of a job for the majority of Americans was a “feeling of accomplishment, beating out high pay by a better than 2 to 1 margin.” In the mid-Eighties, 88% of Americans said

Blacks have not always been afforded a right to trial, not to mention a fair one.
