The main character is busy barricading the house to make it safer, Mr. Cooper is in the basement waiting for Ben to do all the work and take all the risks, much like slave owners did many years ago. Correspondingly, throughout the movie Ben is betrayed and held back by the white people around him, just as the African Americans have been for many years. The ending of this film is very graphic and symbolic, as it shows the African American character being murdered and treated like something other than human, he is shot, but there are no repercussions for the shooter, instead he is praised by the sheriff. After Ben is shot the hunting party is shown sinking their meat hooks into him to bring Ben’s body to the fire to be burned. While meat hooks are used by butchers to move meat, they are also used to hang meat, which is symbolic because of all the African Americans that have been hung by radical assemblies.
Emily Webb 24 August 2015 Caron Moore AP English Lit 4th Period UNTITLED INTRO PARAGRAPH Adah quotes from “The Red Wheelbarrow” by William Carlos Williams on page 170 because of the constant death around her — not only of the family’s chickens but of the people of Kilanga. “Our Father…He doesn’t seem to mind the corpses so much as the souls unsaved. In the grand tally Up Yonder, each one counts as a point against him” (Kingsolver 171). The girls’ father claims he can save the Congolese people by leading them to worship his God. In the poem that Adah alludes to, Nathan Price is symbolized by the red wheelbarrow; he is glazed with the rainwater, his religion, beside the white chickens, the Congolese.

The cruelty of the German officers also changed the other Jews as well. The events of the Holocaust forces the prisoners to fend for themselves, and not help others. On Elie’s fourth day at Buna, some prisoners are chosen by the Kapos to work in a warehouse counting bolts, bulbs, and small electrical parts. Elie describes the Kapos choosing the prisoners to work: “Each one began to choose the men he liked: "You...you...you... " They pointed their fingers, the way one might choose cattle, or merchandise” (Wiesel 49). The Kapos treat prisoners
Beyond this, they are given almost no care or sympathy when they are hurt on the job. Frequently, the workers are treated rudely and even blamed for their own injuries. Holmes watched his farmworker companions develop injured knees and backs and suffer from extreme stress. Yet those same farmworkers also avoided seeking medical help, continuing to work against difficult odds in order to care for their families and provide us with fresh fruit. The story begins as Holmes crosses the United States – Mexico border with nine Triqui men, facing dangers such as robbers, heat, rattlesnakes, and kidnappings.
The Emmett Till documentaries had plenty of archival footage that shows the audience the horrific murder of Emmett Till. By using archival footage, the documentaries serve as rhetoric functions providing pathos for emotion appeal and logos to convince the audience. In The Untold Story of Emmett Till, I noticed there was a strong usage of applied specificity. One of the examples of applied specificity is Mamie Till talking about Emmett Till and while she speaks his baby pictures surface onscreen. The filmmaker showing this footage humanizes Emmett Till as more than a corpse.

Such questions arise in the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel and the graphic novel MAUS by Art Spiegelman. While no definite conclusions can be drawn, they act as guidelines in explaining why the family culture that emerges as a result of the holocaust events deters father and son relationships. The Jews all responded differently causing such uprooted father and son connections and proving that similar religious beliefs do not necessarily translate to similar decisions based on extenuating conditions. The loss of the idea of family in the extenuating conditions of Nazi concentration camps emerges as a painstakingly similar theme in both books. For example, as his father gets sicker, Elie’s previously guilt-ridden thoughts are posed as much more justified when the doctor
