In the book The Crucible, there are several elements in the story that reflected the definition of xenophobia, which is the fear of the unknown or abnormal. People were singled out for how they perceived life and performed activities that were different from their society, and when that society fell under hard times, they blamed them. Dozens of “abnormal” people were accused and convicted, 19 of which were executed. One of the strongest elements that led to such tragedy was the abuse of authority. Today, such abuse of authority is quite evident within American society. It is often referred to as police brutality. Officers of the law are meant to be looked upon as people who wish to make the world a better place, by preventing mayhem and death. It also means that these officers are to...

THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY The crucible. It as an amazing play, in the basics, about one group against another. Just like this issue. The issue in this play, and the issue here, comes from the same seed. I chose this issue, because it was an issue that the public media should talk about. I know a few transgenders, and I know a few people who have thought about it. I don’t think it is wrong, but I think we should be able to hold our own opinions about it. I want to reach out to anyone who pays attention to the public media. The transgender community has been the circle of attention for the last decade or two. No one has a good argument for either side. I don’t believe anyone reading this does either. “they can be who they want.” Yes they can, but why does that mean I have to see...

I am writing this to the police departments and I think police men need to stop killing because too many black people die from them. I chose police brutality because I saw videos of black people getting shot when they don’t have weapons on them and sometimes it’s by accident and its sad to see people die when there’s No weapon on them. The purpose of this letter is to change how police departments are doing things to people and not to kill people without weapons on them. In 2017, a lot of people died by police men and killed 1147 people in the U.S. there were only 14 days in 2017 where police didn’t kill anyone. Black people are most likely to be killed by police men than others https://mappingpoliceviolence.org. For example, Terence Crutcher, he was 40 years old and he didn’t do...

This is an open letter to the Kansas City Police Department, regarding police brutality. I’m writing this to make a difference of the KCPD in police brutality. Police are supposed to protect and serve, but they are using more excessive force then they needed to be. The changed I want in police brutality is that new recruits should be trained more and how to act properly against citizens. I care because if police are ending someone else’s life for just their appearance. Police brutality is the use of excessive physical force, including beating citizens with hands or batons, or using stun guns (such as Tasers), teargas, and even lethal weapons. For the vast majority of citizens, this is something they never have experienced. Similarly, many police officers go their entire...

Dear Mr. President, I am writing to you on behalf of the video gaming community, myself and others included. I have seen the controversy over a comment you made remarking that videos games and movies causing violent behavior. I quote "I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And you go the further step, and that’s the movies. You see these movies, and they’re so violent. And yet a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved, but killing is involved, and maybe they have to put a rating system for that." I would like to explain to you that there is little to no evidence of connection between violence and video games or movies. A German research study from HealthDay News shows that violent video games “...

This is an open letter to the general public. Imagine you are a business man going to your local bank and when you are conversing with the teller, two heavily armed men wearing body armor burst in and begin shooting. The media today is talking about gun control and the banning of specific firearms. Leftist are pushing hard for gun control and the removal of guns from gun owner’s homes. a leftist is a person with left-wing political views. This course of action is a violation of the 2nd amendment. Gun owners are up in arms about our rights stated in the constitution. Leftist gun control is a waste of time because the United States has 88.8 guns per 100 people, or about 270,000,000 guns, which is the highest total and per capita number in the world. 22% of Americans own one or...

Having watched the news over the past few days it seems that some of you(especially John Major) are trying to scupper Brexit/get a second referendum,we the people voted by a large majority in the biggest vote this country has ever seen to leave the EU. If you as Tory MPs side with Labour and vote against the Government (and the people wishes)you will suffer the voters backlash and not get into power for decades to come. Not only will you have gone against democracy but you will hand the keys of Downing St to Mr Corbin with all the damage that he will bring to our country and finances. I have been a lifelong Tory voter BUT will never ever vote for the party again if the above happens. To the readers of this letter please say so and pass the link on to others. Yours, Fred

I was born into this world a few months after the shooting that changed the course of our history. I was born into a world where a mass shooting shocked the world and was unthinkable. I was born into a world where gun violence wasn’t a normal occurrence. But, I was born into a world that was about to change. The Columbine Massacre was something that no one had ever experienced before. It was a new issue, an issue that needed to be resolved right away. However, It’s an issue that’s only grown. 13. 13 people were shot and killed that day. 13 people walked into school ready for a normal day, but those 13 people would not have the opportunity to walk back out of that building. These people aren’t statistics, these people are exactly that; people. People whose families were torn apart...

Why is it that everything that doesn’t happen the way you think it should, you say it is bad? Why is it that you, who announce tolerance, respect, peace, love, understanding etc. day and night, are the ones who are intolerant with those who think differently? Why don’t you give a bit of respect to those who think liberalism is not the right way? Why do you call a war against those countries who want to keep their nation the way it is? Why are you allowed to use hate speech on citizens and politicians of these countries? And last but not least, why is it that you think that you have the right to judge anybody? How in the world do you dare call a country a dictatorship or the PM a dictator? In your mind, why is a PM a dictator if he doesn’t kneel down before you? Do you have any idea what...
