Ms. Barbara A. Mason,
Why Can’t We as a Nation Get Pass This?
There are many social concept and perspectives that can be examined, this is one way of looking at the on going problems that we face, In the last decade, the study of white privilege has reached currency in the educational and social science literature. In April 2002, the city of Pella, Iowa, hosted the Third Annual Conference on White Privilege. Concerned with the circuits and meanings of whiteness in everyday life, scholars have exposed the codes of white culture, worldview of the white imaginary, and assumptions of the invisible marker that depends on the ...view middle of the document...

When blacks were demonstrating without using violence, the whites put them in jail. People (the whites) did not agree with that. They got respect for the blacks because they didn't want to use any violence, but then the blacks got put in jail, and that’s not fair. But a disadvantage of pro-violence is that people get hurt in fights, violence causes people to die or at least get wounded. And it was not a good idea for blacks to use violence. Because people start to think blacks are bad and then they don’t look at themselves. King didn't use any violence, but what if he did. He wouldn't be a respected man anymore, and therefore the blacks wouldn't get their civil rights they wanted to have.
Pro non-violence was very effective, because people started to get respect for the blacks. People had respect for Martin Luther King because of his charisma. He was a Christian, a good one. And when you re a good Christian you don t want to use any form of violence. He thought that violence wouldn't solve anything. He almost was a saint. A disadvantage of pro-non-violence is that it takes very long before there is any effect. And another thing is that non-violence will be met by violence. Martin Luther King didn't want to use any violence, but still he was killed. Non-violence by blacks was met by white violence. You can compare anti-violence with pro-non-violence, because it s almost the same. A lot of people were Anti-violence and therefore the blacks got attention
When Bull Connor ordered his men to attack King s supporters, people had pity on the blacks. It was unjust. The black people didn't do anything, why did the police attack the blacks? People started to think why. Violence causes you to think about the situation. But before you can see any affect you’ll have to wait. Non-violence (talking) takes more time than violence. Anti-non-violence is the same as pro-violence. Malcolm X thought that Martin Luther King was too moderate. Malcolm X was anti-non-violence and he was pro-violence. This also applied for the Black Panthers. But they were more extreme, because they carried guns.
Now we can conclude that violence was not more effective than non-violence. The violence caused a lot of kills. When you use violence people start to think different about you. People won t get any respect for you. But if you don t use any violence you will. For example Mandela didn't do anything, and he was put in jail. After 20 years he was released and he got a lot of respect because in those 20 years he did not give up. He also...
