Racism is a important topic, racism was what people lived and live by. Racism affects people’s lives both physically and emotionally. The Help by Kathryn Stockett is a novel that’s audience is the general public. Skeeter wanted to write this book to show people how the black maids were treated, and black people in general. Skeeter grew up with a maid who she loved and cared about, and she learned a lot from her. Skeeter wanted everyone to realize that black people were not bad people and they like everyone else is just trying to support themselves and their families. This book was after Rosa Parks made her movement and black people could sit where ever they wanted on the bus and they didn’t have to give there seat up to a white person. Racism is a problem and people should be...

Imagine a closed off America, a country born of a rebellion against the suppression of rights now turned to censor the expression past ancestors once fought for the freedom to have. This depiction is shown perfectly in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, a novel painting a picture of a future where books are simply fuel for the fire, and the only information given to the population has no substantial value. Though fiction, the conditions of censorship described in Fahrenheit 451 are very real in today’s world, and has been since the time of the Romans. From minor restrictions in the U.S. of books to the extremes in countries such as Iran, China, or North Korea, where researching certain topics is forbidden by the government, and could warrant arrest. These governments control the flow...

Government Censorship Essay Noor Salam Censorship is the prohibition of speech, public communication, parts of books, films, news, or other information that can be considered distasteful, harmful, sensitive, or offensive. Has it ever occurred that around 416 books have been banned or challenged in 2017? Many things are censored in this society to the point where the public is slowly losing information instead of gaining it. Through the frequent use of censorship from the government, in today’s society people are lacking the information, knowledge, and permission to say anything which also raises issues of freedom of speech. Censorship involves the suppression of speech or public communication and raises issues of freedom of speech. The use of censorship is very frequent in the...

Imagine being a young child and being looked at differently on the playground, for a reason oblivious to you. Imagine growing up and watching people clutch their purses tighter as you walk past them. Imagine being harassed and assaulted by a cop when he accuses you of false crimes. Imagine being scared for your child’s first day of school, afraid of what the other children might call them. This is what black people all around the world have to face on a daily basis. What originally got me thinking about the subject of racism was the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, a book about a family in the 1930’s south (Alabama), where the father, Atticus-who is a lawyer, took on a case of a young black man (Tom Robinson) who was accused of a rape he didn’t do. Throughout the book you see...

Censorship in The Real World Should one man be able to control the actions of another? Should we live in a world where all men aren't created equal? I ask this because as children, we're taught that all humans are created equal and have the right to freedom. We believe that in today's world, it would be impossible for a country to get away with censorship (a different term for modern day slavery). There's no possible way that someone could control another person in today's world. But yet, it continues to happen. In countries like North Korea, most of their citizens are treated like slaves, forced to do whatever the government tells them to do. They have no rights and can often be put in jail for simply disagreeing with the government. This world is a lot like the one described in...

Is Trump really that bad of a president? Is he thinking about himself? How does a Business man a good president? These are all simply answered with what he has done for all of the American people. Trump isn't perfect but what president ever was? Yet a simple business man has, helped the economy grow 4.1% pace in the 2ND QUARTER, which is the first time since 2014 this has happened! He is worried more about the future and the long term positive affects than himself and how he looks as a president currently. What trump could do is a lot of useless things that makes him look really accomplished rather than things that look small and end up helping America a few years later. Not ONLY did he impact the economy in a positive way, he also helped decrease the tax rate. 1 According to (...

Beste Deerlijknaar Wat maakt Deerlijk zo een fantastische plaats om te wonen? Ik beloof plechtig dat wanneer je deze vraag aan eender welke lokale politieker stelt je (naast een hele reeks politieke prietpraat) ook steeds hetzelfde antwoord zal krijgen. Consequent repliceren zij: “De veelzijdige, enthousiaste en hardwerkende verenigingen.” Dat is niet noodzakelijk een leugen. De Deerlijkse verenigingen ontvangen één voor één uiterst degelijke ondersteuning en krijgen steeds een uitgebreide kans tot een hele reeks subsidies, premies en toelagen toegereikt. Zij het nu jeugd, sport, cultuur, senioren of anderen, allemaal kunnen we geregeld met lof over ons gemeentebestuur spreken. Niet alleen burgemeester en schepenen, maar ook de andere gemeenteraadsleden en onze ambtenaren weten...

This is an open letter to all those who advocates #saynotowar. ‘WAR’ AND ‘WAR AGAINST TERRORISM’ MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. It’s high time we understand that it is the new age war and it’s fought through many other evolved battlespaces. One of which is psychological warfare. Let me remind you it started not so long ago from the argument of ‘freedom of speech’ only to voice ‘bharat tere tukde honge inshah allah inshah allah’ And From ‘everyone’s right to dissent’ thier dissent was something like ‘afsal hum sharminda hai, tere kaatil zinda hai’ and ‘hum kya chahte aazadi, chheen ke lenge aazadi’. And when the government raised issue with these activities it got widely tagged as ‘intolerant’ governance. That’s the PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE for you guys. It shields itself behind the most ethical...
