W.E.B. Du Bois SOAPSTone

* Subject * In this text, W.E.B. Du Bois analyzes Booker T. Washington’s views on race in America. Du Bois acknowledges many of Washington’s accomplishments, such as how Washington began Tuskegee University and how Washington could cater to both the Northerners and the Southerners. On the contrary to praising him, Du Bois also subtly criticizes how Washington approaches dealing with racism. Washington believes that Blacks should be submissive rather than challenge the White people. Washington asks the Blacks to give up three things, political power, insistence on civil rights, and higher education of Negro youth. Du Bois then goes on to show the results of Washington’s ideals, such as the disenfranchisement of the Negro, civil inferiority of the Negro, and the withdrawal of aid from Negro institutions. Du bois debates that if these factors continue to be present, African Americans will not be able to make political or economic progress, and problems with race will never resolve. He also says that the Blacks cannot completely blame the South for what they have done in the past, being that some Southerners in the present day are not bad people. Du Bois encourages the Black people to stand up for their rights. Just because Washington is a well-know figure and leader in the Black community, African Americans should not let Whites devalue their race. Blacks should work hard to bring up their name, not sit aside and be subservient to the Whites. * Occasion * This text came from the time (1903) and the place that it did because of all of the discussion over race and equality in America. Du Bois wrote this in response to Washington’s “compromise” over how Blacks and Whites should coexist. In addition, during this time the economy was changing dramatically, and the topic of how Blacks and Whites should stand was being brought…...

Road Warrior Soapstone

...AP English 11 August 1, 2011 Road Warrior SOAPSTone Road Warrior is an essay describing the typical obstacles an average person encounters. Dave illustrates the many scenarios that cause him to rage. He presents these observations in a considerably exaggerated and sarcastic manner. In this way it keeps the readers interests and gives an example to what a typical person would recount these situations as. But towards the end, the subject isn’t just an essay expressing the many things that aggravates him but also pointing out that the general public gets agitated over everything, which in some cases result to unnecessary violence that can be easily avoided if people were more calm and collective. Throughout the entire essay he was expressing his opinion in a captious but realistic approach, which would identify it as a critique. By presenting his paper in this aspect he can expose all the faults he sees so similar minded individuals can also relate to him. Road Warriors does specify the time or location but one can infer the essay’s time of creations is likely written after an encounter with “road rage”. Dave capitalizes certain phrases in his essay to emphasize his frustration, as if he was venting to someone about it. There aren’t any details as to where it was written. He doesn’t state anything about the occasion in general at all. Dave’s audience really ranges from adolescent to the elderly. He mocks minors by referring them as “testosterone- deranged youth “ giving......

Du Bois divides the world´s population into three groups; he distinguishes the white race, the black race and the yellow race as the bigger “families of human beings” 1 . According to Du Bois, these races cannot be solely distinguished by their scientifically proven deviances, as those incongruences do not influence the inner cohesion and the lasting duration of each racial group. Furthermore, he appoints every race a unique role which contributes to the welfare of the world. Therefore, he urges the ‘Negros’ to cut the bonds of suppression from the whites and deliver their message rightfully. 2 He......

Chine, Les Insurgés Du Web

...Chine, les insurgés du Web Un blogueur chinois, accusé d’avoir « colporté des rumeurs contre la police », est arrêté en juin 2009, emmené au poste et interrogé sans relâche pendant des heures… Jusque là, l’histoire n’est que trop banale dans un pays où le délit d’opinion est monnaie courante. Le blogueur, Guo Baofeng – qui se qualifie lui-même d’« emmerdeur » – s’était attiré l’inimitié des dirigeants de Fuzhou en postant une vidéo dans laquelle une pauvre femme en pleurs accusait les flics de la ville d’avoir collectivement violé sa fille de 25 ans, puis de l’avoir laissée mourir d’hémorragie. Mais le destin de l’emmerdeur va soudain prendre un tour inattendu : à l’aurore, après une nuit d’interrogatoire, profitant de ce que ses geôliers sont assoupis, Guo réussit à envoyer en douce deux messages sur Twitter : « J’ai été arrêté par la police de Mawei, SOS », puis : « Svp, aidez-moi, j’ai subtilisé mon téléphone pendant que le policier dormait ». Plein d’espoir, il suit sur son minuscule écran la propagation de la nouvelle, twittée et re-twittée par des membres de son groupe. Quand les flics lui arrachent son Blackberry, c’est déjà trop tard : la planète des « twitteurs » chinois s’est mise en branle. L’un d’entre eux lance l’idée d’une campagne d’un genre nouveau : il s’agit d’adresser au « prisonnier de conscience Guo Baofeng » une carte postale portant une seule phrase : « Guo Baofeng, ta mère te demande de rentrer pour le dîner ».

Dữ Liệu Để Bán

...DỮ LIỆU ĐỂ BÁN I.Tóm tắt tình huống: Trong những năm trở lại đây, ngày càng có nhiều công ty mở rộng mô hình kinh doanh buôn bán dữ liệu. Tất cả dữ liệu về người đóng góp từ thiện, danh sách sinh viên cao đẳng và đại học, bản ghi âm các cuộc điện thoại hợp pháp, số thẻ tín dụng, v.v… đều có thể được mua bán một cách dễ dàng và thuận tiện. Điều đáng nói là những hoạt động kinh doanh này đều được pháp luật cho phép. Ví dụ điển hình cho hình thức kinh doanh này là công ty ChoicePoint. Đây là một trong những công ty môi giới dữ liệu lớn nhất nước Mỹ với hơn 5.000 nhân viên, phục vụ tất cả các đối tượng khách hàng từ doanh nghiệp cho tới cơ quan nhà nước và chính phủ địa phương. Thông qua mạng lưới các nhà thầu rộng khắp (thu thập thông tin từ các báo cáo tài chính công khai, từ công ty dịch vụ tài chính, danh bạ điện thoại và các mẫu form cho vay vốn), ChoicePoint đã xây dựng được kho dữ liệu cá nhân rất lớn. Các nhà thầu sử dụng cả cơ quan cảnh sát, trường học, cơ quan quản lý phương tiện giao thông và tòa án địa phương để thu thập thông tin. Tất cả thông tin này đều công khai và hợp pháp. Tuy nhiên, mặt trái của những cơ sở dữ liệu lớn do ChoicePoint và các môi giới dữ liệu khác quản lý là chúng có khả năng đe dọa sự riêng tư cá nhân và sự ổn định xã hội. Đầu năm 2005, làn sóng chỉ trích ChoicePoint dâng cao sau khi công ty này bán dữ liệu 145.000 khách hàng cho giới tội phạm hoạt động dưới danh nghĩa kinh doanh hợp pháp.

‘the Slaves Went Free and Stood for a Brief Moment in the Sun’ Du Bois; How Valid Is This View?

...in the sun’ Du Bois; How valid is this view? In 1865 reconstruction begun with the aim of securing racial equality between blacks and whites in the southern states. Du Bois believes that during this period blacks ‘stood for a brief moment in the sun’. There were significant improvements to black lies that took place during this period such as their freedom of movement, re-unification of family units and improvements in education. However reconstruction also failed to secure racial equality in many ways. Black people were still economically deprived and there was no real political equality as most black people were prevented form voting in the south and most had to live with the threat of white supremacy groups such as the KKK. One of the most important benefits of the reconstruction for blacks was the freedom of movement. This meant Blacks could now move to find new work opportunities or to take advantage of new land in the west. Between 1865 and 1870 the black population of the South’s 10 largest cities doubled. Black people could now own their own property and choose their employment. One of the most significant impacts of this new freedom was the re-unification of many black families. Blacks could now move and find lost relations such as siblings and children who had been sold on to new owners during slavery, by 1900 80% of black families were strong family units. This freedom of movement meant blacks could now attempt to improve their lives and supports Du Bois’ view......

Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Bu Bois

...Two great leaders of the black community in the late 19th and 20th century were Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Du Bois. The men had many ideas; however, they sharply disagreed on the approaches to black education. Washington, committed to vocational education, trained blacks on low end jobs, and Du Bois believed in academic education in favor of trade school. Both Washington and Du Bois wanted the same thing for blacks, first-class citizenship, but their contrasting views in black education required different ways of obtaining it. Booker T. Washington’s commitment to agricultural and industrial educations was the basis of his approach. He was founder and principal of Tuskegee Institute, a normal and industrial school in Alabama. Students would receive instruction in thirty-three trades and industries, including carpentry, blacksmithing, printing, and machinery to name a few. His school aimed to train African-Americans in the skills that would help them the most in everyday practical things of life. “…the policy of industrial schools- fitting students for occupations which would be open to them in their home communities (Washington, 4).” For example, in the South there was a demand for men to operate dairies in a skillful, modern manner. This resulted in Washington adding a dairy department in connection with the school that instructed a number of young men in the latest and scientific methods of dairy work. He does not agree with the notion that many think......

The Biography, Race Theory and Conflicts of W.E.B. Du Bois

...Theory and Conflict of W.E.B. Du Bois” Eric Anderson Paine College Abstract From the late 1890s through the 1940s, W. E. B. Du Bois was one of the leading black theorists and a major factor of equal rights for blacks in the United States. At a time when many black Americans sought to improve their status by adapting to the ideals of white society and tolerating discrimination and segregation, W.E.B. Du Bois was a constant proponent of unconditional equal and civil rights for all blacks. As a social scientist, he was also a pioneer in documenting historical and social truths about blacks in the United States . W.E.B. Du Bois introduce the idea of double consciousness, an ideology that defines African Americans seeking to reconcile two different cultures that create their modern identity.

Du Bois

...I enjoyed this weekly reading by Du Bois. It spoke to me, and I think that it is extremely relatable in today’s society. The idea of this veil separating black people from white people in our nation is clearly visible today. On a quick side note, I am really amazed at the progression of the materials in this course! I feel that the subject area of each week’s individual can be related to the previous week, but also brings forth a new topic. That being said, my feelings toward Du Bois’ work and the idea of the veil that separates humanity is a recurring theme in my meditations. Today’s world is a place where people of different races and ethnicities are treated different from one another, solely based upon these genetic differences. The media spotlight has been on the discrimination and racism that black people face, and has resulted in a movement promoting the equal treatment and prosperity of black individuals. From police wearing body cameras on the job to ensure ethical and fair treatment of individuals, to black people being kicked out of certain political rallies, today’s world is still in a place where racism exists. I feel that there are just more reasons and excuses for it to exist in society today, and that’s why it is still going on. Du Bois says that black individuals live two separate lives: one in the black world, and one in the white world. I do agree with this statement, but I do think that it is applicable in the reverse sense as well. Individuals always...

Du Bois

...And all this is gained…by ceaseless training and education” (Du Bois 7). I. In The Souls of Black Folk (Of the Wings of Atalanta), W. E. B. Du Bois expounds on the city of Atlanta, and how the black and white people are beginning to coexist. In addition, he relates the city of Atlanta with the tale of the Greek goddess—Atalanta. As the text continues, Du Bois elaborates on society’s obsession with wealth as well as the importance and crucial need of education. However, according to Du Bois, society chooses to be educated for the wrong reasons, which is where the quote comes in to play. Du Bois believes that one should not desire education for wealth or fame etc., but for the sake of becoming a richer and more prosperous character. In addition to this, Du Bois concentrates on the education of the black people in society and how the black people need to recognize their worth and that they are able. As a result, Du Bois presents his concept, the veil, which shows the black people’s insight. Overall, their skin color is obviously a major, obvious difference from the whites, but also they are taught to have a double consciousness. This means that the black people are taught to have the conceptual framework of a white person. However, it is difficult for them to view through the eyes of a white person when they hate the blacks. II. In response to Du Bois’s overall opinion on education, I could not agree more. As Du Bois states that “the thinker must think for the truth, not......

Du Bois

...Du Bois wrote more like an accomplished novelist than a sociologist. Each year in between 1896 and 1914 Du Bois pu8blished a book on relations between African Americans and whites and that’s how he started with publications. Some of his well-known and famous books or major autobiographies are “The Philadelphia Negro” (1899), “The Souls of Black Folk” (1903), “Black Reconstruction” (19350) and “Then and Now” (1939). He still went on to wrote so many influential books which had impact in the black communities and population before his death. • Sociology as scientific method Sociological research is the scientific means of acquiring information about various aspects of society and social behavior. So in general sociology bases some of its fact through science. Sociology as a scientific method can be described as an accurate and unbiased collection and analysis of social data, using systematic observation, conducting experiments and also exhibit skepticism. • Micro and Macro and Sociological perspective There are two types of sociological theories: macro and micro. Macro theories focus on the society as a whole and aim at establishing the general characteristics of the society. It is basically looking at the society as a whole and looking at a bigger picture.
