For example, Donald Trump had been accused of sexual harassment by eight women and there has been nothing done to help these women. Whereas, the “hoods” that were accused were taken seriously and often treated unfairly. As stated in the book, “It seemed funny to me that the sunset she saw from her patio and the one I saw from the back steps was the same one. Maybe the two different worlds we live weren’t so different. We saw the same sunset.”, this quote expresses the idea that even though they seemed to be living in different worlds, they are all the
These accusations surfaced before his election and after he bragged about “grabbing p***y”. Despite the allegations made against Trump, over fifty-nine thousand people voted for Trump, showing the lack of importance sexual assault has in our society. The dismissive nature of our country to sexual assault dehumanizes women the same way we see in
As a result, the irreconcilables in Congress voted multiple times to strike down the League of Nations. This decision represents an isolationist viewpoint because it is based on a disdain for Article X, which provided for intervention into foreign nations by the League. All in all, the Great War did little to change the U.S. attitude of isolationism that most people held toward America’s role in the
Actress Lena Dunham (2016) stated that Trump’s invective takes women back to a time when they “were meant to be beautiful and silent”. Beautiful, you might say about the distaff side in Hollywood, but on no account can you claim that they are silent. Celebrities have spoken up with unprecedented zeal and aired their views in potentially one of the most influential movements of all time. Although Donald Trump won indeed the elections and became the president-elect of the United States, the campaign was the target of harsh criticism, especially from celebrities mainly because of his racist, sexist and discriminating speeches. The American people have never been known for being hesitant or weak-kneed when it comes down to freedom and principles,
Kevin claims that Dana is his wife; Rufus squeals and says, “Niggers can’t marry white people”, “It’s against the law” (Butler 60-61). The Deep South had banned interracial marriages until 1967. Although interracial marriage was unheard of, miscegenation was common but it “often led to complications in the South. Sometimes white men loved their black concubines more than they did their white wives” (Blassingame 84). Many of the white wives would file for divorce if this happened and they would also take out their anger on the black woman involved.
She wants her readers to pay notice to the reality but uses disturbing words and phrases that would only make them stop reading. Mitford takes note that “not one in ten thousand has an idea of what actually takes place” (310) and there is so much more beneath the surface of things. Mitford also uses oxymorons such as, “he has done everything in his power to make the funeral a real pleasure for everybody” (314). It’s clear that a funeral isn’t a “pleasure”, it’s an incredibly sad experience (for most people) and it just goes to show the depth Mitford will go to portray her aggressive opinions. As Mitford continues to describe the shocking details about embalming she gets into a routine and systematically gives us disconcerting imagery every other paragraph, such as, a corpse “whose mouth had been sewn together” (312).
In this scenario, they also believed that Jefferson was rightfully charged and made crude, prejudice remarks when discussed. “Should have burned him months ago. I’d pull the switch myself, they ask me” (198). However, Grant’s family cautiously came to be accepting of Vivian when she refers to herself while explaining that not all people of mixed race hate African Americans. Evidence of racism towards African Americans in the mixed community is demonstrated when Vivian was outcasted by her family for marrying an African American man, “Her family had nothing to say to her husband and hardly anything to say to her” (112).
Certain laws are unfair that's why people should protest, Rosa Parks is one of many women who believed she and every other African American should be treated equal. Rosa was tired of being told what to do just because she was a different color so she stood up for herself and refused to move from her seat for a white man, because of her actions she was arrested on December 1, 1955. “Even before Parks's
Lots of times we would consider T-ray the bad guy. It is very easy to point fingers at him and say he was the worst. But in these situations we never know the full story. The reason they got married is because she found out she was pregnant with T-ray’s daughter. These are very extreme situations that many times we do not want to be in.
If the “slang” words are used by this important white figure, like a president or a motivational speaker then they are taken less seriously and often stereotyped as dumb or stupid. When a black figure code-switches this is a norm, so nobody pays attention to what everyone is expecting to happen. An example of this would be when Young expresses in his article about President Obamas wife, Michelle. He says that she used words like “ain’t” in her speech and nobody cared or thought lower of her for it. In the novel THUG, Starr’s boyfriend tries to talk like Starr and Seven, her brother, but gets [jokingly] made fun of by Starr.
Nominees like Donald Trump bash her in every election race by bringing up her past profession. Around the country, she is known for her work as a head leader of Hewlett-Packard.

After she heard those stories she never looked at him the same she hated him...literally.
