Social Studies: Following our discussion today about Jim Crow laws that established segregation in the southern states following the Civil War, describe some of your thoughts about these laws.
My thoughts about Jim Crow... I believe that Jim Crow was stupid and a lot of the laws were abused. So many laws were created just because the whites didn't like the blacks. These laws were foolish and unequal, some of them took it too far, such as separate schools, water fountains, churches, and restaurants.i believe it was absurd that a black man could have been beaten to death or hanged just because they made eye contact with white skinned woman. It's also very overpowering because the government and a lot of the KKK groups would threaten white people if they were to communicate or befriend a member of the black community. Some laws such as marriage to black people, child custody, and the right to vote were not very equal at all just because our skin is whiter doesn't mean we are superior, we're all humans and we all have feelings.
English - What is freedom?
In my opinion, freedom isn't free. People go to war to fight for our freedom and many die.
There is also the question of are we actually free? We have rights and freedom to make our own choices, but we aren't truly free to do whatever we want. People can still get into trouble for writing or saying something doesn't like or agree with. (Teacher feedback - What would total anarchy look like?)
When I think of freedom, I think of the good, and the bad. I think of being able to say what I want, and do what I please, but I also think of the men and women losing their lives trying to protect our freedom. (Teacher feedback - The sacrifice is unreal!) Out of all of the countries, America has the most freedom. We have the Constitution that states our rights, and also says that no one can be another's slave. In many countries, people are not free. Some get beat, or even killed for saying something bad about the ruler of their country.
Thank you all for sharing. This is inspiring!!
