Organization Social Issue

          One more organization involving discrimination is called W.K. Kellogg Foundation. They support racial discrimination. They have been helping racial discrimination for along time, 1930 to be exact. The founder is William Keith Kellogg. The headquarters of this foundation are in Battle Creek, Michigan. The main thing that this organization is that they help something that is a very big problem in the US today, Discrimination. They have always been donation money to smaller organizations to help with their problems. If it wasn't for organizations like this, our world would be filled with lots of discrimination.

Social issue organizations

          Some organizations that help with racial discrimination are "The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and YWCA. The USEOC is based on how people can help discrimination and that when they see it, they should stop it. The YWCA is based out of NY City. Their pledge is to stop discrimination and encourage peace and freedom for all. These organizations help by protesting discrimination in front of the White House so the gov't will put more enforcement on discrimination.

          Two organisations that are against gender discrimination are AAUW and SALSA. SALSA helps with women who have been fired from their job because of their gender. AAUW is about how protesting certain corporations has made a huge impact on how companies think about having women work in their organization. These organizations have been working for over 10 years to fight discrimination of gender related cases.

          The final to organizations that are fighting against religious discrimination are INTERFAITH ALLIANCE and THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. Both of the organizations are working to fight religious discrimination. Both of these organizations are non-profit organizations.The main jobs of these organizations is that if they see someone facing religious discrimination they must stop the problem.

Social Issue

              Although I don't know a lot about social issues, I know that a social issue is a problem that effects a large amount of people in an area. The social issue I am going to choose is Discrimination. I chose discrimination because I have two cousins that are African-american, and deal with discrimination a lot. They are the nicest people you will ever meet. There are 3 common types of discrimination, gender, religion, and skin color. 


            The reasons why I chose this topic because I always hear people making racist comments on races of people they have never even met. People that get discriminated all the time, don't even deserve to be treated like that. If someone doesn't agree with someones religion, they should just keep their mouth shut because chances are that the person they are making fun of doesn't agree with their religion either.

Argumentative Stance #2- counter claim

         If someone is practicing a different religion then do you think they are wrong. If there is one god how come there are so many beliefs. The U.S. is starting to become less religious. They are saying that if you are not Christian you are wrong. If someone thinks that, they have some very strong religious beliefs toward their god.

Argumentative Stance #1

          Do you think if someone has a a different religion they are practicing the wrong religion. I did some research and found that 90% of people don't believe that. People who practice Christianity, Hinduism, and Judaism are believing what they want. People who want to despise people by what they believe are arrogant and selfish. The United States have a law that says "People have a freedom of Religion." So technically, when people judge someone by their religion they are breaking the law, but people still do it. Judging someone by their religion, to some people, is like judging others with their family or body. The Bill of Rights was made so that people could practice different religion not be discriminated for having a "different" religion. People who practice different religions should not have to deal with coming to a free country for their religion, just to be discriminated by an dumb person who cant keep their mouth shut.

             This weekend I watched the New York Giants beat the Chicago Bears for week 11. Next week for week 12 the Giants play the worst team in the NFL the Cleveland Browns. Currently the Giants are 7-3 and will be 8-3 after next week. Tomorrow we are having our first wrestling meet. I am planning on doing good there and wrestling my heart out. I just finished a book by Mike Lupica called Game Changers. If you like sports books I recommend that series of books.

              I am going to start talking about hunting and fishing in my blogs now if you guys want that. Let me know in the comments if you want me to give you tips about hunting and fishing.  I will start blogging more now if you want me to.

           Today is a good day because we are playing the tigers. Last time we played them we won 16-0. We currently are 3-0 and have only let up 1 touchdown. I am the leading tackler on the team with 25 or so tackles in 3 games. We will win today if we play our hardest and focus non the game and not talk on the side lines. I have 30+ tackles with assists. I believe that we will win today.
