    ... he best conditions possible. Copyright 1975 by Seth Mydans. All rights reserved. http://www.theatantic/politics/abortion/myda.htm May 11th, 2000 At the same time, there begins to appear on the part of some an alarming readiness to subordinate rights of freedom of choice in the area of human reproduction to governmental coercion. Notwithstanding all this, we continue to maintain strict antiabortion laws on the books of at least four fifths of our states, denying freedom of choice to women and physicians and compelling the unwilling to bear the unwanted. Since, however, abortions are still so difficult to obtain, we force the birth of millions more unwanted children every year. to cut dow ...

Enslaved Africans represented many different peoples, each with distinct cultures, religions, and languages. Most originated from the coast or the interior of West Africa, between present-day Senegal and Angola. Other enslaved peoples originally came from Madagascar and Tanzania in East Africa. Slavery became of major economic importance after the sixteenth cen ...

    An Analysis of White Butterfly In all of his books, Walter Mosley captures the environment and personalities of African Americans throughout post WWII history.

  • Animal Rights Protests - 1,036 words

Jim Motavalli writes that "environmentalists tend to see the animal movement as hysterical, shrill and one note.' They're often embarrassed by the lab raids, the emotional picketing and the high-pitched hyperbole." If the rhetoric of groups like COK alienates groups with a natural affinity for animal issues, how can it change the mind of a 55 year old wealthy white woman who's always loved the look and feel of a fur coat? Although the White House simply stood silently in response to COK's sidewalk activities, the scene was quite different when Compassion Over Killing picketed ...

  • Birth Of A Nation - 698 words
    Birth Of A Nation D. W. Griffiths epic tale told in Birth of a Nation was a shocking one. The movie set box office records, taking in over eighteen million dollars. When it was released, it was one of the longest films ever made, over three hours in length. Some film scholars say that it is the most important film ever released. But despite all of these records and achievements, the story and the way that blacks of the South were depicted haunted blacks for decades to come.

    ... posed to the physically, emotionally, and spiritually oppressive horrors of a life spent in slavery. Beloved is full of ideologies that the dominate white group uses to keep the blacks down. There are also examples of gendered racism and oppositional culture, as these blacks try and survive the ideologies of the whites. Beloved gives us potent images of the gender racism perpetrated by Schoolteacher, a brutal overseer, and his nephews in their rape of the slave woman Sethe. What was stolen from Sethe was her sense of herself as a woman deserving of protection and respect from men. Sethe's rape defiles her before both black and white men. Her husband, Halle, watching from a secret place, ...

    Body Image Thin thighs and protruding hip bones are foremost on the minds of women young and old. Add perfectly flat stomachs, visible rib cages, bony upper arms and very little body fat- and we have an ideal body that look like it hasn't eaten a morsel in over a month. Unfortunately, this is what the majority of the fashion models look like today (Waterhouse,1999). Women of the nineties are confronted with myriad of images, roles, concepts and possibilities. We do everything within our reach to look our best, be our best, do our best in the many facets of our lives. We strive to express ourselves in the most confident, positive and graceful manner possible. However, to the degree that out o ...

Persons under the age of eighteen, pregnant women, new mothers, or persons who have become insane cannot be sentenced to death. Capital punishment saves lives as well as takes them. We must accept the few risks of wrongful deaths for the sake of defending public safety. Abolitionists say the cost of execution has become increasingly expensive and that life sentences are more economical. A study of the Texas Criminal System estimated the cost of appealing capital murder at approximately $3.2 million. This high cost includes $265,640 for the trial; $294. ...

The event was covered by the national media, and the fate of the Little Rock Nine, the students attempting to integrate the school, dramatized the seriousness of the school desegregation issue to many Americans. Although not all school desegregation was as dramatic as in Little Rock, the desegregation process did proceed-gradually. Frequently schools were desegregated only in theory, because racially segregated neighborhoods led to segregated schools. To overcome this problem, som ...

  • Daughters Of The Dust - 1,182 words
    Daughters Of The Dust "Daughters of the Dust," by Julie Dash is a film rich with symbolism and meaning. The film is set in Ibo Landing where the ancestors of enslaved Africans were said to have walked across the water in an attempt to return to their homeland. The Peazant family gathered on a day in 1920 in order to prepare for a journey across the water from their secluded home to the mainland, and to mainstream American society. I had to watch the movie several times before I was able to identify the many themes that Dash has chosen to weave together in this"artsy" film presentation. Of the many symbols that appear throughout the film, I have found one of the simplest to be the most profou ...
