Nuremberg laws honestly hurt my feelings it makes me think about the Jim Crow Laws where basically you're not free. I constantly think about if that was me, I wouldn't have my freedom I should have. People get arrested for not being free, just imagine if that was you. Imagine if you could not be with the person you are with, imagine just waking up, and not being the same person you usually. I sometimes just take time and think if that was me, and you should to.

For example, Donald Trump would talk trash about Hillary Clinton so he can win the election. Adolf Hitler mainly did that to the Jewish people. Propaganda comes from music, speeches, advertisements, some come films or plays, and television was also where a lot of propaganda comes from. Propaganda is also like spreading rumors which also misleading. Propaganda can be fun to use, but sometimes people might not recognize it, so it is imporatant you know what propaganda is.
