Question Description

 

-What is social justice? (Do not give me a dictionary definition, give me YOUR considered definition.)

-What is a patriot? (Do not give me a dictionary definition, give me YOUR considered definition. Avoid such things as ‘a person who supports his/her country’ – what is the meaning here??)

-What is a traitor? (Do not give me a dictionary definition, give me YOUR considered definition.)

 

Comparing the list of names below to the definitions you’ve given above, categorize the listed individuals as patriots or traitors to the United States (some of them might fall into more than one category). Indicate whether or not any of them contributed to social justice as you have defined it and explain why or why not. There is no right or wrong answer. You can despise or love some or all of them – but you need to JUSTIFY your position on each of them.
