History In The Making

Intro Sample...


Clinton lived in the White House for eight years as First Lady while her husband served as President of the United States. She claims that this fact will assure that she has experience at this level of power. The Democratic Party infrastructure is very much pro-Clinton.
All the presidents in the past have also been white. This year’s election could be a mark in history because an African-American seeks the presidency. To say the least, African Americans have come a long way in politics compared to the past when people of color suffered disenfranchisement through many illegal and, even legal, machinations. In 1866, Congress passed the Fourteenth Amendment that grants due process to all citizens and citizenship to African-Americans and leads to the election of John Willis Menard to Congress in 1868 even though an election dispute kept him from taking his seat. Since then, African-Americans have made great strides politically. There is no doubt in many minds, however, that if Obama wins the Presidency or even the party nomination, the white supremacy movement in this country may raise its ugly head. Only history will tell and the shape of history will change powerfully.
The campaign platforms of both of these Democrats will elicit different responses from their Democratic bases as well as from independent voters. There is a guarantee that there are going to be voters whose vote rests on the fact that Obama is black and Clinton is a woman, but the majority of the voters concern themselves with the point of view of each candidate. Clinton focuses on the economy and economic anxiety, the environment, immigration, domestic terrorism, and the war in Iraq. Obama’s emphasis centers on education first with the economy, immigration, terrorism, and the war in Iraq following. In actuality, the platforms for the most part are very close to each other. Obama’s cry is that change is necessary and Clinton repres View More »

    Immigrant Workers In Canadian History

    3412 words, 14 pages

    THE CANADIAN HISTORY OF IMMIGRATNT WORKERS Canadian labour history is tainted by hatred, discrimination and fear of immigrant workers and immigration. This stems in part from Government sponsored racism and the capitalistic use of immigration as a means to defy the labour movement. We can start with the stereotyping and discrimination of the Irish in the 1840’s, our first large scale exploitable labour pool and move right through to today’s racial profiling and cultural unacceptance of Arabs and east Indians. Through our history the acceptance of immigrants gradually improve but even today
