    ... one sin for which the penalty is national death, race suicide" (Davis 19). It is no wonder that reproduction in America is grossly stratified, especially when our great leaders reflect and reinforce the racist, eugenic, classist notions of acceptable reproduction. Interestingly enough, Roosevelts race suicide arguments drew more people to support the birth control movement, as well as exposed the racial divisions within the movement (Davis 19). The birth control movement reflected and reinforced some of the racial divisions surrounding reproductive rights. Angela Davis explains that birth control. . . is a fundamental prerequisite for the emancipation of women. Since the right of birth c ...

  • Civil War Spies - 1,027 words
    ... few excellent ones. Phillip Henson, was one of the very few excellent spies. He was born and raised in Alabama, but when the war began he was outcast from his family.

After he completed his first mission - that of buying as much cotton as he could for the Union - he was then sent to work for General William Rosencrans.

  • Descartes On First Philosophy - 717 words
    Descartes On First Philosophy Rene Descartes Meditations in the First Philosophy is a skeptics speculation on certain inalienable truths. Descartes meditations are based on the epistemological theory of rationalism: that is if someone truly knows something then they could not possibly be mistaken. He provides solid arguments for what his six meditations stand for, and how he obtained a clear and distinct perception of "innate" ideas. In Meditations he comes to terms with three certainties: the existence of the mind as the thing that thinks, the body as an extension, and God as the supreme being. He attests that he came to these conclusions by doubting all that had been taught to him in his f ...

    Edgar Poe Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston on January 19, 1809. Orphaned at the age of three, Edgar was sent to a foster home where he lived with the Allans in Richmond, VA until he married his thirteen-year-old cousin, Virginia Clemm.

  • Fort Pillow Attack - 1,293 words
    Fort Pillow Attack annon THE GRAND FABRICATION It is almost as difficult to find consistent information about the incident at Fort Pillow as it is to determine the moral significance of its outcome. Scholars disagree about exactly what transpired on April 12, 1864 at Fort Pillow, when General Nathan Bedford Forrest captured the fort with his 1,500 troops and claimed numerous Union lives in the process (Wyeth 250). It became an issue of propaganda for the Union, and as a result the facts were grossly distorted. After close examination it is clear that the Fort Pillow Massacre (as it became known by abolitionists) was nothing of the sort. The 1,500 troops under the command of General Nathan Be ...

  • Ku Klux Klan - 1,191 words
    Ku Klux Klan The Ku Klux Klan: The First Era With the ending of the Civil War in 1865, the period of American history known as the Reconstruction began. It was during this era that the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist group, spunoff from the freemasons, first came to power. The Freemasons usually tended to attract people in the upper-middle class, while the KKK and Knights of Labor, another racist group, attracted the working class. The KKK was formed mostly to restore the "peculiar institution" of slavery to America and to reinstate the Caucasian race as the most superior race in the world. A former Confederate general and Freemason, Nathan Bedford Forrest, founded the Klan in 1866 because ...

In Louisiana the democratic convention resolved that "we hold this to be a government of White People, made and to be perpetuated for the exclusive benefit of the White Race, and... that the people of African descent cannot be considered as citizens of the United States." (2). Mississippi and Florida in particular enacted vicious black codes, other southern states (except North Carolina) passed somewhat less severe versions, and President Andrew Johnson did nothing to prevent them from being enforced. These laws and violence that erupted against blacks and union supporters in the South outraged Northerners who just a few months before had ...

    ... n. The Ku Klux Klan had become soft in enforcing its policies and this deficiency allowed its members to cause chaos throughout the Southern states. Because many of the police supported the Ku Klux Klan movement, may incidents occurred and no investigation ever followed. The Ku Klux Klan was finally slowed when the Federal Bureau of Investigation stepped in and became involved in reducing the power of the group. The major reason many incidents took place is that many ex-confederate soldiers had begun organizing their own dens. The hatred of blacks was the main reason that may people decided to join the Ku Klux Klan movement. Certainly, if the Ku Klux Klan had held to its original goals a ...
