c. s. l English 111 ESSAY Katirina Rivera December 9, 2013 ANALYTICAL RESEARCH On July 4, 1776 our founding fathers signed their names on the Declaration Of Independence envisioning a country that would guarantee freedom to all its citizens, however events in American history have not always supported these principals. In certain situations lines have been drawn between “us” and “them”. Prejudice, discrimination often arose from fear , suspicion and anger. My intro is about this countries lack of perception on the command requiring equal protection of its entire eople and how critical it has been over the years. All men are NOT created equal” as the deceleration of independence has put it. The topic of this paragraph is to address and goes into further detail on the sentence “ALL men are Created Equal” and how it is a contradiction and how this sentence alone has many errors. Whether you’re rich or poor black or white us as human beings have the right to treated equally. “In mathematics what is to the left of the equal sign is the same as what is to the right of the equal sign, in many ways equal means the same. But we aren’t built like that.
This is simply common sense, Look at one the easiest things to evaluate the difference between man and women. How are they equal and how can they be treated equal with their differences? You can’t, Thomas Jefferson said all men are created equal but were really not. The two groups are different and for some to believe that they should be treated the same and feels they are equal has never dealt with either. The topic of this paragraph is on the case of Trayvon martin and its unjust decision against his murderer.
Because of a law in Florida called “Stand Your Grown” a self-defense law that gives individuals the right to use deadly force to defend themselves without any requirement to evade or retreat from a dangerous situation. Has left a 17 year old boy by the name of Traywon Martin walking to his dads girlfriends house shot to death by a 28 year old neighborhood watch by the name of George Zimmerman because he felt traywon looked suspicious. “People want to make this a black and white issue, but i believe that this about right nd wrong” as stated by traynv’ons mother sybrina Fulton.
This shows a lack of equality. How can other people in other states get different laws if we are created equal, this doesn’t seem very equal to me. The topic of these paragraphs is on the case of Sean bells death and a cop’s word against a citizen. A day before his wedding date , Bell was holding his bachelor party at club kalua, was reported going into a car to get a gun because of an altercation him and his friends had outside, this made Detectives Michael Oliver, Gescard Ignore, and Marc Cooper, the three New York City police officers who fired 50 shots in total killing Mr.
Bell were not found guilty on all counts. “Black man lives are meaningless in America” as said by Kevin Powell, It is extremely hard for a civilian to win a case against a cop no matter how glaring the evidence is. Why is that because he’s a cop and Mr. Bell is Just an African American man? There both men and there was never a gun found as told by the 3 cops, how does this make people equal because one has a higher power. The topic of this paragraph is on Slaverys history throughout our nation. This paragraph is about how were not equal as portrayed.
Slavery began in the 17 and 18th centuries, Many African Americans were captured and taken on ships to work. They were someone’s property often described as “Black gold” they were treated very poorly and forced to work in harsh conditions and often subjected to being whipped by their owners, somewhere even killed. They were forced to be away from their families some were even bought and sold and traded as if they were cattle. They had no choice, no say they couldn’t even defend themselves in the work handed to them ven if it was an insane task often put to work for hours and hours of the day in the heat picking cotton.
I think African Americans back in that time should have had the same social and political rights as the white man, this would of made the sentence “All men are created equal” true. The topic of this paragraph is on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr an activist and a leader of the African American civil rights movement. He came in an era where segregation was a big problem for blacks and whites. Using techniques of Mohammad Gandhi a non-violent protester he used his methods of onviolent boy cotts and marches to lead and clear a path of equality for its entire people.
He wanted to put a stop on segregated bathrooms and restaurants and water fountains. In Mr. King’s speech I Have a Dream said “When the architects of our Republic wrote the magnificent of the Constitution and the deceleration of independence, they were signing a promissory note to which to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men-yes, black as well as white men would be granted unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. ” In conclusion
