It 's even more surprising to know that Hoover blamed the great depression on Mexicans. Having Anglo workers and citizens is one of the most unhuman thing I have heard of coming from a president. Although getting undocumented Mexicans out was cruel, it was somewhat reasonable. As if for those Anglo citizens who got deported, it is completely un American and very cruel. Being a citizen meant leaving what other life they had in the former countries, meaning these people had nowhere to go.
Major H.W Smith then asked Mary if she knew this man and she said,” Before God, sir, I do not know this man, and have never seen him, and I did not hire him to dig a gutter for me.” This is obviously a lie that Louis Powell and Mary Surratt told to Major H.W. Smith. This proves that Mary Surratt had to be a large part of the plan if she was too afraid to tell the truth to a Major. There is a letter written by Booth claiming that Mary surratt was innocent. On the day of the murder, Booth ran into fellow actor John Matthews on the street and gave him a sealed letter for the National Intelligencer newspaper.
This quote from “The Wooden people” ,“Their faces were crushed by things made out of wood and stone” (19). The quote shows that “The Wooden People” were crushed by stones which is not possible and so is an example of personification. Stones and wood are non living things that cannot move or harm someone unless it is done by humans on purpose. Similarly, an example of personification is found in the “Creek” myth, “Things went well with the animals and the Earth, but after a while the animals complained of the lack of purpose in their life” (creek). In this quote it shows that the animals complained to the Creator of how they did not have anything to do, but animals are living creatures that cannot talk in the first place.
“That if you don’t speak English, you’re undocumented.“14. “That we are drunks, illegals, only good for cleaning, womanizers, uneducated, gang affiliated who have not contributed to this society.“15. “That Latinos are lazy, dumb, deadbeat dads, illegal immigrants, school drop-outs, gang members, drug dealers, rapists … That Latinos will turn America into a third world country.“16. “That we all speak ‘Mexican.”. Being “uneducated,speaking Mexican,Illegal Immigrants” are the basic negative stereotypes that describe the Hispanic/Latino community.According to the author, many men are sick and tired of hearing this all of the time and want something to end it.
“A Good Man Is Hard To Find”: Characters Qualities and their Changes Flannery O’Connor’s short story A Good Man Is Hard To Find tells about the end of Bailey’s family; it is called by father’s first name as the author did not mention characters’ last name. The man’s mother, hereafter referred to as the Grandmother, did not want to go to Florida and preferred to visit places of her youth. Woman’s contumacy led to the car accident; she took her cat to the trip and the pet disturbed the driver. After that the family met with escaped convicts led by the criminal called Misfit and were killed by them. The Grandmother was the only character that achieved a “public” death: “the Misfit… shot her three times through the chest” (O’Connor); other family members were shot in the forest.
Perhaps things could have been different if Bowkers friends were in town, or not going to school somewhere else. O’Brien states, “Sally Kramer, who picture he had once carried in his wallet was one who married” (132). And his father whom was a baseball fanatic didn’t help him. Often he didn’t have anyone around; he continues his old habits that he recalled about the war. Humping around the lake alone with no one to vent about how the war.
As the story progressed, Elie begins to catch himself beginning to have no pity towards others and having a pessimistic attitude. For example, following the hanging of Elie’s dentist, who was going to remove his golden crown. Elie did not have a slightest bit of pity in him. He stated that he “was nothing but a body. Perhaps even less: a famished stomach.
McCarthy made the man and the boy nameless because it supports the new unidentified world. Names are now insignificant; since communities are destroyed and civilization is gone. It also contributes to the story’s vagueness, where the year and location aren’t known. The man guesses what month it is based on the weather, since he hasn’t “… kept a calendar for years. [But he knew] they were moving south.” (McCarthy 4).
Areli Padron Sanchez Dr. Ruiz How do we as a “Mexican-American/Latina/o/Chicana/o” population “stay woke?” Can one consider themselves a Chicanx without the Spanish roots? During the lecture, social norms were questioned and “The Truth” was revealed. As a population, we are often viewed down or underestimated and many of the times we do not stand up or argue, but why? Why do we settle and let our culture be degraded? “The Truth” is we don 't know how to respond because of the blind ignorance we have of our own roots.
Marquez chose an unnamed, unknown, first person narrator. The narrator parallels with the reader in that the narrator and the audience are both given all conflicting perspectives of every version uncovered. The narrator does not share the same association the other characters he interviews in the novella because he no longer lives in their village. The narrator 's loose attachment from the murder is evident when he says, “I met him a short while after she [narrator’s mother] did, when I came home for Christmas vacation” (28). The narrator was not in his town for the event so he is not as connected as most of the characters that share their story in the novella.
