The tragedy of the Cherokee nation has haunted American consciences si
The tragedy of the Cherokee nation has haunted American consciences since the arrival of Andrew Jackson’s Presidency in March of 1829. The events that had transpired after the implementation of his Indian policy are indeed heinous and continually pose questions of morality for all generations. Ancient Native American tribes were forced from their ancestral homes in an effort to increase the aggressive expansionism of white settlers during the early years of the United States. The most notable e

If we must die, let it not be like hogs haunted and penned in an inglorious spot, while round us bark the mad and hungry gods, making their mock at our accursed lot. Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack, pressed to the wall, dying, but fight back! -- Claude McKay If you look in an encyclopedia under the heading Men, Role of you will not find any entry. Why is this? Why is there a special article about women and what they do? The fact is that women did the majority of the work duri
Cuba
Cuba
Cuba To understand how Cuba arrived at the point it is at today, it is important to know the history of the island. When Columbus arrived in Cuba in 1492, there were three major native cultures on the island. As a result of the Spanish presence, these native groups quickly disappeared. New diseases brought by the Spanish, combined with their less than kind treatment, quickly reduced the population of natives (Suchliki 13-20). Spain began significant colonization of Cuba in 1508. Fatefully, colo

Just recently major reform has been going on in the democracy we live in. For reform that is big it takes support and help from many people, especially the interest groups and lobbyists. Major reform has been taking place in the health care industry and has to do with the president Clinton’s health care reform and t

On the surface, the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings seemed to be relatively simple, wherein a man who was a candidate for one of the country's most prestigious positions was challenged by a former co-worker claiming sexual misconduct. It seemed at first to be a story that the American public was somewhat familiar with: politicians and prestigious men have been linked several times before with charges involving sexual misconduct. However, when we get a closer look at the situation, America w

Leonardo Da Vinci In an age of exploration, Leonardo was the boldest explorer of all. As Cooper writes, while his fellow countryman Christopher Columbus was discovering America, Leonardo in a sense was discovering the world (3). Leonardo had one of the greatest minds of the Renaissance. His inventions were ahead of his time. His art set the standard for later Renaissance artists. Most impressive is his variety of talents and achievements. He mastered all his subjects of study. He is the symbol

Bill Clinton was born William Jefferson Blythe III on August 19, 1946, in the small town of Hope, Arkansas. He was named after his father, William Jefferson Blythe II, who had been killed in a car accident just three months before his son was born.

Summary of Politics The Art of Bamboozling
Summary of Politics: The Art of Bamboozling According to Donna Woolfolk Cross, in her article “Politics: The Art of Bamboozling”, propaganda is a form of distraction from the truth. It is a way of clouding minds with no hard evidence to back it up with. Name-calling, faulty logic, and stirring emotions are three forms of propaganda. Name-calling has been used since the days of children in schoolyards and is exactly what it is named. This technique is very effective in politics. A conservative p

The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society
The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society since the earliest civilizations and continues to be used as a form of punishment in countries today. It has been used for various crimes ranging from the desertion of soldiers during wartime to the more heinous crimes of serial killers. However, the mere fact that this brutal form of punishment and revenge has been the policy of many nations in the past does not subsequently warrant its implementation in today's society. The

The American Century Change has been a constant process in the United States. Americans have experienced some very tough times, but has always pulled through. There have been some great improvements in American society, especially in the last one hundred and thirty years. Because of all the military, political, and economical changes between 1870 through 1910, Historians have branded the twentieth century as The American Century. Only because of the United States past can historians even th

Procurement Management Overview: Despite some disagreement on the exact nature of the future of supply chain management development, it would appear inarguable that as corporations continue their preparations to enter the new millennium, the global environment will increasingly serve as a critical element in the value creation process of supply chain management. International trade will exceed $17 trillion by 2020. Global logistics represents nearly 20% of the world’s gross national product. A

There were hardships on blacks because of slavery, while Germany, on the other hand, was committed to ethnic cleansing during Hitler's reign.

Capitalism and Our Society From the very dawn of intelligent human interaction to the present day, the concept of capitalism has dominated the way we trade goods and acquire wealth. Except for the necessity of a simple communist society in pre-modern times, or the noble humanistic notion of a socialist society, the free market has always been the most efficient way to run the economy once the most basic needs of life have been satisfied. Only during the last several hundred years has the idea o

Peace is the sturdy child of terror. For me, such a peace is a wretched offspring, a peace that condemns us to live under a dark cloud of perpetual anxiety, a peace that codifies mankind's most murderous instincts. . . .The beast (nuclear weapons) must be chained, its soul expunged, its lair laid waste.

Her poems, written during the revolution, reflect her views on racism and prejudices in society and her dislikes about the government. She calls for the unity of the African American people and the awareness to the coming Black revolution. However, Giovanni’s poems began to change in the late 1960’s after the birth of her son.

Ever since the first slave ship came to America and especially after the Civil War; race has been thrust into the forefront of America’s view and remains there today. The issues of minority and majority rights dominate American society. Americans not only concern themselves with a person’s character and intellect, but also the col

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c

The ancient Greek culture has had many effects on our own culture today. A few examples of these effects are: their invention of the Olympics, geometry, and the democratic government. The first Greek Olympics were held at Olympia in 776 BC. They were rather different than the modern games. There were far fewer events. Supposedly, the very first organized Olympics consisted of only on event, the Stadion. In addition, only free men who spoke Greek were allowed to compete. They were held at Olympi

There are many hypotheses as to why people would feel positive or negative towards women's rights. Factors include economic, sociological, psychological, and political variables. Economically, income could effect the way a person feels towards rights for women. The higher the income, the less likely they will feel positive towards women's rights.

The United States Supreme Court has, on many occasions, held up the fundamental right, guaranteed by the constitution, to marry and procreate. This right is so widely believed that the supreme court doesn’t think that it is even an issue anymore, until it comes to same-sex marriages and gay parenting. In the past decade, courts have had a rising number of custody cases involving a homosexual parent. Typically, the homosexual parent does not get custody of the child because of some accepted soci

From the lifelong inspiration of his mother, Jane, Booker learned lasting lessons of courage, perseverance, resourcefulness, and postive concepts, which influen

Of all confrontations in political philosophy, the biggest is the conflict between philosophy and politics. The problem remains making philosophy friendly to politics. The questioning of authoritative opinions is not easily accomplished nor is that realm of philosophy - the pursuit of wisdom. Socrates was the instigator of the conflict. While the political element takes place within opinions about political life, Socrates asks the question What is the best regime and how should I live? Ancient

Hitler, the Biggest Lunatic of the 20th Century Everybody knows that Hitler mass murdered the Jews. He killed them very cruelly. His way of killing them was by putting them in gas chambers, hanging them, cremating them, randomly shooting them, and working them to death. One explanation for this cruelty lies within his childhood. April twentieth, 1889, in a tiny suburban house numbered 219 was where the legend was born. Hitler was the fourth child of a poverty stricken family. He was called Adolf
Why War
Why War
Why War? Many debate the question of whether or not the Civil War was necessary. Could the war have been avoided? To answer this question, we must first examine the differences that separated the two societies. The economic division between the North and South started in the 1700’s. Early settlers found the South’s warm climate and fertile soil ideal for growing tobacco, cotton, and sugar cane. Southerners developed large plantations, using slaves from Africa to provide for most of the labor. Th

In the Hindu lands of ancient India, there was a class structure called the caste system. It divided the society into four, well defined groups. It was born of dharma which dictated a rigid class structure. In spite of the divisions among different class members, the system worked well. Buddhism came along and challenged the notion. Buddha taught that birth and the happenstance of who or what your parents were, was not a basis for ranking in society. Instead it was your deeds that dictated your
