Racial Discrimination KAFFIR. When you see or hear this word, what runs through your mind? 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? Can you feel the heat of the sun beating down on his charred back? Perhaps you can even taste the beads of sweat swelling from his forehead and arms. Or maybe you are more inclined to visualize a dark-skinned woman with creases in her foreh

After I wake up I quickly come to a reality check. Realizing that I will have a white collard job. Working through the ranks from the bottom up to reach a reasonable goal.

Working hard every day feeling that I am underpaid is reality. In my dream like state again I see myself always happy. Never stressed out with the days problems or worries. Family

My Experience with English Education English has never been my favorite subject. In fact, it has always been my least favorite subject. Going through school, I often wondered why I needed to do so many English related tasks, and in wondering, I learned to detest the subject without realizing its future benefits. Why do I dislike English so much? Is it such a dreadful thing to learn? Isn’t learning how to correctly write and interpret the English language important? Well, no and yes. No, English

When one begins to analyze a military novel it is important to first look at the historical context in which the book was written. On the nights of February 13-14 in 1944 the city of Dresden, Germany was subjected to one of the worst air attacks in the history of man. By the end of the bombing 135,000 to 250,000 people had been killed by the combined forces of the United States and the United Kingdom.

Arthur Miller's The Crucible is clearly a representation of the true meaning of tragedy. John Proctor was, in fact, the medium, the tool, of which Miller utilized to convey a universal depiction of tragedy. A broad definition of a tragic hero is a protagonist who, through faults and flaws of his own and in the society in which he exists, falters in the grand scheme of things. This mistake leads to suffering, which ultimately leads to a self-realization. Miller, himself, has said, Tragedy, th

Why People Dye Their Hair
Why People Dye Their Hair Many people of different ages ask of teens the question, Why do you dye your hair? It's a valid question. It seems like the fad these days is to have a different color of hair every week. Red, purple, blue, green, orange, it doesn't matter, as long as it's new. The crazier the better, the brighter the cooler. I feel I'm experienced in this area, as I've dyed my hair at least a dozen times in the last couple years. Why do we do it?

The book I read Go Ask Alice by an anonymous author is all about problems, conflicts, and how to deal with them.

European Exploration and Expansion The five European powers comprised of Portugal, Spain, England, France, and the United Providence’s had early projects of expansion. The Vikings in ninth and tenth century moved as bands of merchant pirates looting trade ships and discouraging trade on the seas. Because of threats from people like the Vikings, early trade was discouraged. However, the Crusades from eleventh to thirteenth century resurrected the desire to trade and explore.

Movement outward from the western European peninsula took varied forms and shapes as it proceeded by land and by sea throughout Europe, Asia, and America. The result was a vast increase in power, wealth, and knowledge for the tiny nation states of western Europe. Spices were so important in the middle ages that they were a drivin

Characteristics of Modern Condition What can I say about the modern society? It reminds me of iron – it is very hard to mould and the process is very slow. Our society is very conservative. It resists any change, any innovation. And one is considered criminal if one tries to go against tradition, against customs, against morality. As Nietzsche said: “To be evil is “not to act in accordance with custom”, to practice things not sanctioned by custom, to resist tradition, however rational or stupid

Never-ending Racism
Never-ending Racism Racism in the world, as evil as it may be to most people, will continue to exist because people tend to look at each other categorically. Being looked upon categorically means that individuals are not seen as humans, but rather seen as African-Americans, Caucasians, Hispanics, or some other politically correct word. Racism is not considered a good thing by most people’s standards, but has yet to be avoided. To understand what racism is, we first have to look at it from severa

What is a hero? Are heroes the same for all ages? Heroes can come in all shapes and sizes, and they are different from one generation to another. Heroes can be people that rise above their limitations to do significant things that impact other people’s lives, for instance Mark McGwire when he hit 70 home runs to break Roger Maris’ record. A hero can also be someone that spends her whole life dedicated to a cause to help other people. An example would be Mother Teresa helping the poor. Heroes fr

However, the traditional set in the home will become obsolete, and consumer interest in its proposed replacement remains untested.

In a time of confusion and conquering, the ocean was the biggest mystery, and the most important thing to the planet, because it allowed for expansion.

There were many motives that impelled European nations to embark on overseas exploration from the fifteenth century onward. Each of these reasons was slightly different depending on the nation but one thing is for certain; overseas exploration provided vast opportunities and riches for those who dared to voyage into the unknown. The Portuguese had a need for better land. The agriculture opportunities in Portugal were poor and better land was available overseas in the Atlantic islands and Muslim

Wetlands Wetlands occur throughout the world and support a wide variety of plants and animals. Wetlands are areas, other than lakes or rivers, whose soils are saturated with water for indefinite or prolonged periods of time. The water level remains near or above the surface of the ground for most of the year. Often these wetlands result from the surface exposure of the groundwater ( the water that has percolated down through the soil and accumulated and built up on a layer of rock or other mate

Over the years, billions of animals have been killed from experiments, but the amount of animals tested on “has fallen 50% since 1968” (Davis 22). With that much of a decline, I can’t imagine how many animals were once used and for what purposes. Even with the 50% decline, “the number of animals sacrificed for medical and biomedical ends in the United States each year is unknown, but certainly exceeds 60 million
