Bernard Marx is a primary example of enhancing the lack of diversity in the World State society. Bernard is not only short and struggles with confidence, but he is also an introvert. “... Bernard’s physique was hardly better than that of the average Gamma. He stood eight centimetres short of the standard Apha height and was slender in proportion. Contact with members of the lower castes always reminded him painfully of this physical inadequacy” (64).
Slavery in America created an upsurge of racial discrimination. This demoralizing practice forced many generations of black “slave” Americans to endure, or more specifically suffer the extortions of white people. They were dehumanized as the very essential criteria for survival in society was eliminated from their lives or even from their dreams. Their identity, their self respect suffered for they were viewed as the “properties” of white people. America gradually became a powerful country but they forgot to thank the black hands whose excessive toil had built the country.
Carter Godwin Woodson remains a legendary figure among black scholars, especially in the field of Afro-American history. He initiated the annual celebration of the Negro history, which marked a stride in an attempt to eliminate racial based discrimination. Woodson’s commitment to scholarly work was formidable. For instance, he pioneered research work on Negro migration, history of nonprofessional’s, the mind of the Negro, and Negro’s orations. His numerous work shed light on the extent of economic exploitation, cultural isolation, and segregation that dominated the society.
Willy always found his dreams in someone else which is why his happiness never came. At first it was his father then it was his brother Ben, and then it was famous sales man Dave Singleman. He looked for others inside of himself which led to him not being satisfied. Dreams can not be rented or borrowed. Willy never realized this and in turn it caused his mental health to deteriorate even more than it already had.
Unoka was a very unsuccessful man who brought his misfortune upon himself by spending the majority of his time drinking and relaxing rather than working just as the other villagers did. "Unoka, the grown-up, was failure. He was poor, and his wife and children had barely enough to eat. People laughed at him because he was a loafer, and they swore never to lend him money because he never paid back." (Achebe, 4).
He filled the leadership vacuum left behind by the leaders of banned organisations. The Black Consciousness movement was based on the idea that black people ( all people who were by law or tradition politically, economically and socially discriminated against as a group in South African society. The term black is not all-inclusive, the fact that we are all not white does not mean that we are all black.) have to struggle for survival and in order to rid themselves of the shackles of oppression, they must group together against the cause of their oppression - the blackness of their skin. “Black consciousness, therefore, takes cognisance of the deliberateness of God’s plan in creating black people black.” Biko’s theory therefore as a direct response to the government 's attempt to repress people through fear and the belief that they (black people) were
He didn’t fit in the society as well as his brothers, which made him strongly disliked. He stood out in the crowd which showed that he was extremely different and Anthem didn’t like different. One thing that made him stand out was that he was built differently than his brothers. “Ever have the teachers and the Leaders pointed to us and frowned and said ‘There is evil in your bones, Equality 7-2521, for your body has grown beyond the bodies of your brothers.” (Rand 18). Equality was also highly intelligent, smarter than his brothers, and he had potential to be an amazing member of the city, but he was never given the chance to be great.
Coalhouse Walker, then, speaks to every African American, who challenge the desires numerous whites have of them. Be that as it may, his character eventually turns into the quintessential and irate dark male as he falls back on brutality to determine his emotions toward
An ugly and insolent soldier is not to be praised. After describing Thersites ghastly appearance, Homer notes that “Achilles despised him most, Odysseus too”(2.257). These are the strong, intelligent, upper-class heroes that are seen throughout this poem, and that fact that they despise this man is meant to tell the reader something important: don’t root for
