Racism in the United States of America still do not vanish but the condition of the black people today is much better than what their forefathers had experienced before. The peak of black expression was during the late 1800's until few decades at the start of 1900's. The span of the struggle was not clear for scholars but claim that the black movement efforts indeed alleviated the situation of the African-American people. According to Jacqueline Moore (Leading the Race), during 1880 to 1920 there was a small group formed by a black social elite in Washington D.C. This was the time when blacks in the southern rural areas moved to the urban north areas New York and Washington D.C. These blacks are educated, socially aware and racially aware. At first they have no intentions of creating a distinctive position in the society but the conditions of Jim Crow segregation triggered them to be a racially conscious group. The broken promises of Reconstruction (biracial cooperation and assimilation) disillusioned these African-American elites in Washington D.C. These black elites claimed the leadership over black community to maintain their status while helping the black race gain a reputation in America.read more
Property rights may differ in the subject that it was dealing with. There are different concepts of property rights associated with food collectors, horticulturalist, pastoralist and that of industrialization. In food collectors, property rights are dealt in a way that there must be consent in the government or in the indigenous community in order to access the food supply. The refusal or consent may depend on whether it would enhance their community or pose hazard on the people and the society.read more
One day it dawned to me that I was wasting my life being a marijuana addict. After 10 years of being a regular marijuana user, I came to this realization because of the various negative side effects that I am experiencing as well as the constant appeal of my wife for me to stop this addiction. Aside from the fact that I want to save myself from this addiction, I am sincere in doing all I can to preserve my family. My wife and I have been married for nine (9) years and we are blessed with a beautiful 6-year old daughter. Moreover, at present, my wife is eight (8) month pregnant and is due to give birth to a baby boy next month.read more
In recent memory, the Stephen Lawrence murder episode is considered one of the most embarrassing incidents for the Metropolitan Police of London due to their general apathy towards the victim’s family, and alleged racist approach in handling the case. Back then, the case made headlines all over for the shocking impunity with which events unfolded in favour of those allegedly responsible for the gruesome killing. In April 1993, while waiting at a bus stop in Eltham, near London, black teen Stephen, 18, and his friend Duwayne Brooks were accosted by six white youth who set upon him with racist abuse and in a disastrous turnout of events, Stephen was brutally stabbed which eventually led to his death; an episode that severely damaged race relations between the Police and members of the Afro-Caribbean community and provoked intense debate on an issue that was long buried in the hatchet: the case for institutionalised racism in the Police department. This case was a turning point in the history of the manner in which race crimes were tackled in Britain.read more
From the dawn of the humankind history faith had played the vital role in the life of people. It was faith that helped them survive the hardships, protected them during the long windy dark nights beside the fire, it was the thing that made them continue forward when all the energies seemed to have been lost. The faith is composed of many small elements, small persuasions, the facts that have no real evidence as the basis, but people still take them for granted. Belief system is the phenomenon that organizes all this small facts, principles and persuasions into the full concept, the one that has the defined goals and methods of reaching them. The belief system has the rules its adepts have to follow, it usually explains the origins of those rules and the history of their appearance, it talks about the countenance that is presented to those who fulfill them, and the measures taken towards those who fail to do so. Mary Pat Fisher, the author of the book Living Religions says that every religion is a belief system, but not every belief system is a religion.read more
As we all know people have always been unequal. It was determined by numerous factors even many centuries ago, and nowadays the amount of those factors has increased greatly. In the dawn of the humankind history people had little property, so that the social status was determined by other marks, like authority and skillfulness. There were little things that marked the difference in people's social statuses, like better pieces of food, better place near the fire and more attention from the side of the representatives of the opposite sex. Nowadays it's much easier to tell the difference between the representatives of people who possess different social status. They differ a lot in their language, national origin, clothing, gender and interests.read more
Written communication occupies a great part of people’s professional and personal lives. With the spread of the Internet, its importance has only increased. At the same time, writing often becomes more casual and neglects the rules that were previously cast in stone. This is also true of punctuation that is often regarded as a superfluous element of written documents. In my opinion, however, the correct use of punctuation is as important as grammar, good wording, and style.read more

At the beginning of the last decade, the environmental debate was ushered into the core of political, socioeconomic and intellectual discourses. At its infancy very few would have been futuristic enough to predict the health of the interaction between corporate globalization and environmental protection. In the few instances where an antagonism was predictable, the picture of the Earth as a life sustaining blue planet suspended in infinite space inspired the nascence of social movements that sought to protect the world from destruction from the depredations of industrialism. Basically, this was the initial clash between corporate globalization and environmental protection.read more
