Excellence is Your Best Weapon for Fighting Racism
Excellence is Your Best Weapon for Fighting Racism The Bible says that the poor will always be with us. An similar statement is that racism will always be with us. So, the question is, What should we do about it? There are many ways to fight racism: you might march, protest, complain, or beg the government for help. Some of these methods have worked well in the past. However, I think the best and most effective weapon today for fighting racism is excellence. Excellence will bring down more

Do you picture a man with skin the color of the midnight sky, do you see him bending his muscular body down to the dry earth to pick cotton from thorn-ridden plants?

Or maybe you are more inclined to visualize a dark-skinned woman with creases in her foreh

Rosa Parks Rosa Parks is an extraordinary person because she stood up against racism and stood up for herself. It was even harder for her because she is a woman, and in those days, things were much harder for woman. Rosa Parks hated the ways of her life. She had always dreamed of having freedom in her life. As she grew up, she went through different experiences that gave her courage and strength. One day, Rosa Parks had so much courage and strength that when her bus arrived to pick her up, she

Are we civilized? We are starting to witness the beginning of a new era. It is full of information and technology, and it will decide how the future is going to be. But despite all our new inventions and ideas that show us how we're better off than the generations before us, have we grown in any other ways? Does being civilized only mean to become more advanced technologically, or does it apply to our moral foundation? It is very obvious that society has developed a lot in learning and technolo

A Chapter of My Life God helps those who help themselves. This sounds like a simple passage from a religious book, but it has an overwhelming significance in my life. This phrase is greatly responsible for building self- esteem and confidence in me. It can also be credited for transforming a shy, introverted, and confused boy into a very confident and enlightened adult. I neither read the phrase from a book nor heard it at a religious service. I heard these words from someone who really under

Philosophy When I was born, I did not know the difference between right and wrong. Now, I do. The word philosophy means the love of knowledge. One type of knowledge is propter quid, which ask the question why or how. In this paper, I will demonstrate how Socrates, Hume and Aristotle, three well known philosophers, would explain how I acquired this knowledge in relation to the principles of right and wrong. Socrates is the first philosopher, I will discuss. Since Socrates did not write anything

It was getting dark out fast and they were both kind of scared. They started talking to each other about school when all of a sudden they ran into someone. “Ahhhhhh” they both cried. They were so scared. They started to run but they looked closer and saw that it was only Lillian. “Boooo” she said. “I’m the Boogie Man”!

No matter what I write, no matter what the topic, time or place, I’m never sure how something is going to turn out. Now, just because it’s a surprise doesn’t mean that it isn’t good. And, just because it’s a surprise doesn’t mean it isn’t an accident either. Weren’t Corn Flakes and Penicillin discovered by accident?

Inflation Over the last century many countries throughout the world have experienced inflation as their major economic problem. Expensive wars have traditionally been recognized as the sources of inflation. Governments, in effort to squeeze more production out of an economy, have often resorted to printing or releasing more money to finance the purchase of arms and soldiers1. In an economy already producing at full capacity, the issuing of additional money serves to bid up the prices of the out

A Time of Change
A Time of Change The enlightenment was a great time of change in both Europe and America. Some of the biggest changes, however, happened in the minds of many and in the writings of many philosophers. These included some of the beliefs of David Hume, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, and Francois Voltaire. Writers during this time focused on optimism, which is the opinion to do everything for the best (Chaney 119), and the best for these philosophers was to stretch the minds of the ordinary.

Krogstad and Lheureux are two literary villains created by Henrik Ibsen and Gustave Flaubert respectively. Between them, they share many similarities. They both are exploiting the main character of the novels they are in. They both want something, which was at least at one point money.

By Tiberius Gracchus’ proposal of the law stated in the lex agaria, I speculate that he is trying to help the poor citizens of Rome, and at the same time, benefit the overall condition of the city. The law stated that those holding more than the legal limit of public land must give that land up, and that this land would be redistributed to “Roman citizens in small allotments...” That Gracchus is trying to help the poorer citizens is shown through the small size of the plot of land given, the pr

Germans were searching for a reason to blame someone for their problems and extremist groups such as the Nazis provided a focus for the German people.

While a large part of this is true, Germany's anguish after World War I sent people looking for reasons to blame someone or something for their burdens
