American suburbs have played an important role in the changing of American society. As younger families started moving into the suburbs a cultural change started taking place. The suburbs became more of a “clique”. Neighbors began comparing themselves to each other, trying to keep up and even outdo each other in job promotions and material possessions. The suburban culture was changing what Americans viewed as important to them and the pressure to fit into society was changing the American culture as a whole.
Laurie Halse Anderson accurately captures the emotions and struggles of a school age rape victim through her award-winning novel Speak. Anderson is able to accomplish such an accurate portrayal of a rape victim’s struggles because of her personal experience of being raped as a freshman. She is able to weave her own story and emotions into her protagonist’s life, allowing the reader to draw parallels between Melinda and Anderson’s life. For instance, both Melinda and Anderson were raped by an older boy in their freshman year, and were both silent about it. In an interview celebrating the novels fifteenth anniversary, Anderson tells Entertainment Weekly writer, Hillary Busis, “I didn’t tell anyone for 25 years.” This reflects in her character, Melinda, as she also did not inform anyone for an entire school year.
The Effect of European Exploration and Colonization on Native Americans Everyone knows that the colonization of Europeans on the Native American’s land has been disastrous to its people. The exploration of these new lands did not start with Columbus as most of us have been taught, instead stretching back all the way to the fifteenth century A.D, when millions of Native Americans lived in the America’s rather than the small amount we reduced them to. The Europeans brought other things than death to the Native Americans, however. Their culture, being greatly different than the natives, was introduced and influenced them so greatly; signs of it can still be seen today. My goal in this paper is to discuss both the good and the bad effects that came of the Europeans exploring and colonizing the America’s.

I want to go on living even after my death!” - Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl.
It may be believed that the culture’s ways are always the best, and other cultures are not considered to have any positive elements. This was the thinking behind the ‘White Australia Policy’; after years of half-hearted protection full-blood Aborigines were allowed to die out, while part-Aborigines were encouraged to assimilate into European culture. In 1937, the government released a policy paper which concluded: “The policy of the Commonwealth is to do everything possible to convert the half-caste into a white citizen.” In practice, the ‘half-castes’ were not accepted by the white society causing the assimilation policies to fail, due mainly to high Aboriginal unemployment. It is poignant to highlight that while policies specifically regarding Aborigines were terribly intolerant, it was racism from the community that rendered the policies ineffective. The government may have had a plan, but the culture it promoted had other
