    ... 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 ...

  • Dave - 1,522 words
    Dave Matthews Band Who is the Dave Matthews Band? Five years ago that question would have gotten nothing more than a weird stare and a stupid look. But today you would get everything but that. The Dave Matthews Band is one of the most successful bands of the late 20th century. But many ask how a band so new has become so successful in such a relatively short period of time. Many come to wonder if it was their music, their look, or possibly something else that has made the Dave Matthews Band what they are today. It is my opinion that the Dave Matthews Band's success comes from their earth-toned acoustical music, their buttoned flannel shirts and their khaki pants, their heart-laced lyrics, an ...

  • During The Past Quarter Century, Abortion Has Joined Race And War - 1,622 words
    During the past quarter century, abortion has joined race and war as one of the most debatable subjects of controversy in the United States. It discusses human interaction where ethics, emotions and law are combined. Abortion poses a moral, social and medical dilemmas that focus many individuals to create an emotional and violent atmosphere. There are many points of view toward abortion but the only two fine distinctions are "pro-choice" and "pro-life". A pro-choice person would feel that the decision to abort a pregnancy is that of the mothers and the state should have no right to interfere. A pro- life person would hold that from the moment of conception, that the embryo or fetus is alive. ...

  • Ellis And Glasser - 1,889 words
    Ellis And Glasser Albert Ellis and William Glasser have been in the mainstream of psychological society for over four decades. Both have contributed greatly to modern psychotherapy. The Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) of Albert Ellis and the Reality therapy of William Glasser have endured the trendy world of psychology and in fact as they are based in ancient philosophy (Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius), they also remain the foundation for brief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and ecclectisism. Their strength is in the flexibility and simplicity inherent in each. They go directly to the problem and focus energy there without lengthy psychotherapy. Both prolific writers and dedicate ...

  • Fluctuating Immigration Policy And The Economy - 1,956 words
    Fluctuating Immigration Policy And The Economy During the various decades of 1920 to 1960, immigration policy toward Mexicans was influenced by America's economic status at each decade. During this period there was much fluctuation in attitudes and policies toward immigration. America saw immigration policy go from an almost invisible border in the 1920's to massive military-like roundups of immigrants in the 1950's. During the 1920's while the Immigration act of 1924 was all but halting European and Asian immigration, thousands of Mexicans were allowed to cross the border without any trouble from the new anti-immigration legislation so that Mexicans could work seasonally in the fields. When ...

  • Grateful Dead And Phish - 706 words
    Grateful Dead And Phish The Grateful Dead and Phish are two very talented bands, who in their time, created big names for themselves. Many people make wrongful association with these two groups of musicians. It is said that Phish is trying to be the Dead of this generation. This statement is very untrue. Phish is not a Grateful Dead take-off. Phish and the Dead have much more differences than similarities. There are of course a few similarities between these two bands. If there were none, nobody would compare them so much. Phish and the Grateful Dead are both considered jam bands. This comes from their live shows, in which they take their songs and stretch them into long improvisational jams ...

She gains the opportunity to fend for herself and realize what it means to be self-dependant, an important aspect in the struggle for women's independence. "She was a charitable and generous women, eager to make those around her happy - everyone except me." (179, Ch 6) The characterizations presented her show Clara to be a very generous woman capable of infinite amounts of love and affection for others. The irony however is found in that her desire to be with her husband has not simply expired, but has never truly been in existence, from the time she stated that she ha ...
