Collins. Elizabeth took an opportunity of thanking her. 'It keeps him in good humour,' said she, 'and I am more obliged to you than I can express.' Charlotte assured her friend of her satisfaction in being useful, and that it amply repaid her for the little sacrifice of her time. This was very amiable, but Charlotte's kindness extended farther than Elizabeth had any conception of; its object was nothing else than to secure her from any return of Mr. Collins's addresses, by engaging them towards herself.
How would this change the world? I thought back to before the trial when blacks rights meant almost nothing to me. I can see now that even this trial has affected many of the men and women in the town of Macomb. Now they can see that black men and white men are very similar the only difference is that one thinks that they are better than the other. When I found out that Tom Robinson had gotten shot trying to escape
In fact, it may increase the number of murder rates. Perhaps a practical yet moral solution would be the key to solving this issue. An example would be to give the convict a lifelong sentence in a maximum security prison. Instead of releasing the convict after twenty to fifty years, they will stay there for the rest of their lives. With this solution, the convict will not be integrated back into the society, thus decreasing the number of reoffending convicts.
Shaking my head I started to think of the pros and cons of joining the Carnales. Earning respect in the Carnales would be even harder, their women were suppose to know their place, which was at the bottom of the food chain. The women in the Carnales were really just whores that knew how to hold a gun and take orders. I mean there were some women that were very high up, but they only got that way but either having a body count over 100 or marrying their way into the gang. I had never killed, which at the age of 17, and living in Stilwater, was a big deal.
MY EXPERIENCE AS AN AFRICAN IN AMERICA Arriving in the US three months ago I honestly thought it would be easy to introduce myself as African and be understood and accepted. I said to myself "they are black just like you so what is the worse that could happen?" But the experiences I have had so far have made me realize that life in the US is not all that it is made out to be. I always assumed that black to black racism did not exist but to my utmost shock, it does exist. I realize now that it goes beyond being a part of the same race.
Even though the story mainly takes place decades before now, the fact that Walter’s story happened in a time where I never realized how bad African Americans were treated even after so many societal victories a few decades before that, reminds me that it may still be possible despite current changes. My crime classes taught me that evidence can be faulty, even witnesses testimonies, which can result in innocent people going to jail. This book backed up that lessen and showed that even in ridiculous cases an innocent person can be victimized just based on what a jury decides. It is easy to believe that the justice system is just fine and trust it if you do not know the truth, but even Walter had faith in the system that inevitably put him on death row,
Today in race and ethnicity we were assigned to write a three to four page paper about personal reflection related to a minority. I am not sure what to really write about. I have always felt I am different than most other people when it comes to how they feel or act around people of other races or religions. I have never used the stupid, “but I don’t see your color” line that a lot of people use as their proof that they aren’t racist. My thing has always been that yes I see your color but it isn’t important to me.
A recent assignment that was assigned in my American Law class was to write what races or things you are prejudice towards, and when the papers were read almost everyone said they didn’t have prejudice views towards a certain race. This could be true, but is likely untrue. Almost everyone has a certain prejudice towards something, even if we try and believe we have equal feelings towards all races, it's impossible. This is why the society and world we live in today is nauseous (Wan,
All ages got the enjoyment of life stolen from them in this rigid era. Lack of help would only ruin these people as well as the time period as a whole. Poverty wasn’t always a question, but came about with the increase of industrialism (Swisher 42). It was during the middle of Queen Victoria’s reign and was labeled England’s “biggest trouble” (Evans). The accumulation in population added on to the catastrophe by leaving more people to be replaced by machines and eventually become poor.
Growing up I of course knew of the stereotypes that African American males are always in prison. I went to a small high school, with little to no racial diversity. However I knew of these stereotypes I did not recognize them as fact. It wasn’t until I took my Cultural Awareness class that I truly saw the staggering information that sadly supports the stereotypes. However this was only the beginning of my awakening, as the class continued I was in awe of the injustices that African Americans face in the criminal justice system.
