  • Apocalypses Theme - 1,893 words
    Apocalypses Theme "All I smelled was rotten bodies," Texas Ranger, Roy Coffman said during his testimony at the murder and conspiracy trial of 11 Branch Davidians. The dead were found in the rubble of the April 19 fire that destroyed the compound, killing more than 75 Branch Davidians, including the sect's leader, David Koresh, and 17 children. Perhaps the worst case of the federal government's overreaching in American history, the 1993 Waco tragedy has caused Americans to ask the question of how much military involvement will citizens allow in their everyday lives before they lose their rights as individuals. In February, 1993, 4 federal agents were killed in an assault on the compound of t ...

  • Belly - 806 words
    Belly Belly is one of the most controversial films in America. It is one of the most technically polished Hip-hop films to date. Does it have great acting? No, it does not, but DMX as Boz has a solid performance while the other actors do a believable job considering they are by nature rappers and not actors. A good action movie? Yes, it builds refreshingly and unexpectedly to a spirit of redemption and responsibility while containing a variety of action sequences for your buck. A movie for the whole family? No, but is a hip-hop teenagers favorite but is too hard for the younger and older audiences limiting its success. Rap artists do three of the four main acting performances. DMX gives a so ...

  • Breakdancing - 370 words
    Breakdancing Breakdancing Breakdancing a form of African American dance that emerged from the hip hop culture of the South Bronx, New York, during the mid-1970s. Drawing upon several African American dance forms, break dancing coalesced in the 1970s and reached its peak in popularity during the 1980s. Breakdancing developed out of the Bronx, New York, disco scene. When disco DJs changed records, dancers would fill the resulting musical breaks, or "breakbeats," with movements that emphasized the rupture in rhythmic continuity. These highly acrobatic interludes developed into a new genre that mixed Afrodiasporic dance styles, reflecting the influence of the lindy-hop, the Charleston, the cakew ...

  • Christian Antisemitism - 1,287 words
    ... hern France; he wrote that Jews are "more perfidious and faithless than demons." (20) Persecution of Jews continued right into the Reformation and became more vicious. Identification of Jews with Satan became increasingly explicit. Erasmus (1466-1536), the Dutch philosopher and theologian, wrote, "If it is the part of a good Christian to detest the Jews, then we are all good Christians." (21) Lest one should place all this anti-Semitism at the door of the Catholic Church, no less a Protestant hero than Martin Luther denounced Jews as children of the devil. In 1542 Luther published Against the Jews and Their Lies, a 200-page rant which includes the following: Know, O adored Christ, and ma ...

  • Civil Disobedience - 4,585 words
    Civil Disobedience I heartily accept the motto, That government is best which governs least; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe--That government is best which governs not at all; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which the will have. Government is at best but an expedient; but most governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes, inexpedient. The objections which have been brought against a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing government. The standing army is only an a ...

It's like a big city, it has the highly prestigious areas, and the sex-ridden slums (Mitchell). It has the upstanding citizens, and it has the criminals. On the Net, crime is more abundant than in a large city, though, mainly because of the difficulties in tracking and prosecuting offenders. Even from its beginnings, the Internet has always been a battlefield between phreaks and administrators. The Internet hasn't always been a public forum. In fact, the Internet has been around for years. The Internet is just a new fad (Larson). ...

    ... Clanton, his sons, Ike, Phin, and Billy, and the McLaury brothers lost no time expressing their negative feelings for Doc and his gang. Doc had become quite famous as a gunman by the time he had reached Tombstone. Several men had died in encounters with him. At any rate, Holliday was a welcome addition to the Earp's fight with the Cowboy faction. Doc and Kate's arguments were frequent, but not really serious until Kate got drunk and abusive. Doc, at this point, decided that enough was enough and threw her out. Sheriff Behan and Deputy Stilwell found Kate on one of her drunken binges, still berating Doc for throwing her out.

  • Racism Today - 1,175 words
    RACISM TODAY "...Everybody jumped on him, beat the hell out of him... Everybody was hitting him or kicking him. One guy was kicking at his spine. Another guy hitting on the side of the face... He was unconscious. He was bleeding. Everybody had blood on their forearms. We ran back up the hill laughing... He should have died... He lost so much blood he turned white. He got what he deserved" (Ridgeway 167.) The skinheads who performed this random act of racial violence in 1990, had no reason to brutally beat their victim other than the fact that he was Mexican (Ridgeway 167). Racism is objectively defined as any practice of ethnic discrimination or segregation. Fortunately, racial violence is s ...

  • The 1960s - 1,315 words
    The 1960s Luke Laubaugh 3-11-99 research paper rough draft The 1960s was a decade that forever changed the culture and society of America. The 1960s were widely known as the decade of peace and love, not because the world had become a utopia but, in my opinion, because of the heavy use of the popular hallucinogenic drugs by the American youth. In reality minorities were struggling to gain freedom from segregation and thousands of American soldiers and Vietnamese civilians were being killed in the highly disputed war in Vietnam. On February 20, 1960 four black college freshmen from the Negro Agricultural and Technical College in Greensboro, North Carolina quietly walked into a restaurant and ...

Joyce ended up with a shot through the hand, the saloon's bartender was shot in a toe on his left foot, and Doc was arrested and charged for assault with a deadly weapon. He was found guilty of the charge and fined. On March 15, 1881 a stagecoach was held up and its driver and a passenger were killed. The "Cowboys" took this opportunity to try to get rid of Doc.
