The Different Conceptions of the Veil in The Souls of Black Folk For now we see through a glass, darkly -Isiah 25:7 W.E.B. Du Bois's Souls of Black Folk, a collection of autobiographical and historical essays contains many themes. There is the theme of souls and their attainment of consciousness, the theme of double consciousness and the duality and bifurcation of black life and culture; but one of the most striking themes is that of the veil. The veil provides a link between the 14 seeming

Gender Equality In The 1990s
Gender Equality In The 1990's Overall, the rights and status of women have improved considerably in the last century; however, gender equality has recently been threatened within the last decade. Blatantly sexist laws and practices are slowly being eliminated while social perceptions of women's roles continue to stagnate and even degrade back to traditional ideals. It is these social perceptions that challenge the evolution of women as equal on all levels. In this study, I will argue that subt

The Death Penalty: Justifiable
The Death Penalty: Justifiable
The Death Penalty: Justifiable By: Brendan Moriarty 04/28/96 -Preface: Let it be noted now that this speech is very opinionated. I strongly believe that the Death Penalty is a form of punishment to be used when needed. Which opens up the question, when should it be used? That may be the breaking point in a lot of arguments, deciding when to use the death penalty is a very touchy subject. I believe that only murderers deserve the death penalty, but I do not believe that all murderers should recei

Affirmative Action: Public OPinion vs. Policy When Justin Ketcham, a white college student from the suburbs, thinks about affirmative action, he thinks about what happened when he sent out letters seeking scholarships so he could attend Stanford University after being accepted during his senior year of high school.The organizations that wrote back told him their money was reserved for women or minorities. To Americans like Ketcham, it's a matter of fairness. The average white male will claim tha

Affirmative Action: Solution Or Confusion?
Affirmative Action: Solution or Confusion? Affirmative action is a plan designed to end discrimination by guaranteeing minorities will be hired, regardless of race or gender. While our country hires such groups based upon these guarantees, the qualifications of such people are occasionally overlooked. Many believe that affirmative action is a very effective plan; however, the population which opposes such action frequently includes people of various minorities, as well as many others who have be
Animal Ethics
Animal Ethics
Animal Ethics Animal ethics is concerned with the status of animals, whereas environmental ethics concerns itself with the relationship to the environment. I will show the existence of animal ethics depends on the existence of environmental ethics. I will prove this by showing that such philosophers who have practiced animal ethics such as Singer, Regan, and Taylor are limited because they are individualistic. Which means they are limited to animal concerns, and nothing else. But with the enviro

Evolution Of Profanity
Evolution Of Profanity
Evolution of Profanity The evolution of written profanity began roughly in the sixteenth century, and continues to change with each generation that it sees. Profanity is recognized in many Shakespearean works, and has continually evolved into the profane language used today. Some cuss words have somehow maintained their original meanings throughout hundreds of years, while many others have completely changed meaning or simply fallen out of use. William Shakespeare, though it is not widely taugh

Affirmitive Action
Affirmitive Action Affirmative action policies do not benefit those who are supposed to be helped in any way. Instead of Affirmative action decisions in their favor, minorities and females are entrenched in their status because of the lowering of standards and expectations imposed on them by businesses and educational institutions due to the cries of racism and sexism in standards by advocates of AA. Ernest Van Den Haag put it best, when he declares that. Affirmative action has done as much i

Crash: Extraordinary at First View, Ordinary Upon Critique
Sheila ran out of our English classroom in tears. Several friends bombarded her with sympathy and comments on Miss J?s mindless comments concerning Sheila?s Iranian ancestry, but they didn?t understand. Her family was kind, loving and compassionate; how dare our English teacher state that no Iranians cared about anything but their own country? In the form of a good friend?s experience, this crude generalization was my first time witnessing racism firsthand, but it was certainly not my last. Tho
