Segregation -- Myth Of The South : A 15 page paper discussing the myth of white supremacy in the South. The evil done in the name of race likely was not so much based in the delusions of white supremacy as in fear that such attitudes might in fact be groundless. Liberals of all colors later claimed that members of the black race deserved ongoing preferential treatment as retribution for "400 years of oppression," a common phrase in the 1960s that manages to persist, though far more in the North today than in the South. The South may well be the most racially tolerant region of the country. It cannot be denied that the Ku Klux Klan burned crosses all across the South and terrified black families for years. It also cannot be denied, however, that their very methods were in themselves cowardly, reflecting the fear of the whites for the blacks—the cover of darkness was not enough; they had to have robes, too.

Vietnam War / The War We Could Not Win -- Why It Really Ended : In this insightful 9 page paper, the writer discusses how utterly defeated the U.S. was by its enemies in Vietnam and how unable the America military was to protect itself from guerrilla warfare.
