The girls were stuck in the cabins all day because of the stunt they tried to pull the night before. The story ends with the girls on the bus ride how talking about how people would do anything they say because of their religion. In the story Brownies ZZ Packer uses a lot of examples of peer pressure. Arnetta is always trying to talk the girls into doing stuff that is not so good, and if you don't like what she said then she makes fun of you until you say ok with it. Because the story is viewed by a girl in the group.
You know how old chickens scratch and gabble. That’s how the tales started, all the gossip, the wondering, all the things people said without knowing and believed, since they heard it from their own ears, from their own lips each word.” Many people in the town believed this about Fleur because Nanapush had begged Fleur to stay with him, however Fleur was so centered on going back to the house that her family lived in. After being found in the cabin near Machimanito Lake and being washed up on shore, they found her to be different from many of the others mostly because of her shady personality. For Fleur to repeatedly hear stories about herself that she knew weren't true eventually drove her
However, Nurse Ratched’s sudden distaste for McMurphy didn;t always directly happen to him. Previous to his arrival, Nurse Ratched would scold and lecture patients acting out of line, but after the discovery of the ward party, Nurse Ratched grills into Billy Bibbit about sleeping with a prostitute and then comforts the frantic Billy, the whole time Chief describes she “glares at us as she spoke.” (272). This action, intended to draw guilt in McMurphy, exemplifies Nurse Ratched’s poor judgement choice since McMurphy’s arrival. The Nurse Ratched pre-McMurphy would’ve appropriately taken care of the Billy issue, but now upset and angry at McMurphy for the party he’s thrown, her judgement is impaired by trying to make McMurphy feel guilty, which ultimately leads to Billy’s suicide. In general, McMurphy’s arrival and antics played a very negative role in Nurse Ratched’s mental health, which can be seen declining throughout the
If a bus was filled and there were no places for white passengers on the bus to sit, then bus driver would ask the black passengers to give up their seats. By one person standing up for their rights and what they believe in caused a movement for change. Rosa Parks showed the qualities of a hero and embodied them, unlike Gilgamesh. She showed courage in refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man, which led to her arrest and not only the loss of her job but also her husband 's. She even received death threats for years.

And again later in the story Joe made Janie feel bad about her looks by making her wear something to conceal her hair while she was in the store. Towards the end of the marriage when Joe started to look horrible, sick, and fat, he thought that he would try to make Janie feel bad about her looks too. This is all important to the story because these little cases was what drove the two apart permanently. Janie’s beauty was what split her and Joe up. Janie developed some bitterness in the solitude that Joe and the town gave her, that was evident in the speech she gave to Joe on his deathbed.
Once, Jimmy Taylor came walking by us yelling, “Melissa! Whattaya want with that old, fat, Black lady, any ways?” Before I could retaliate, Miss Johnson said to me, “Now, you musn’t, we must feel sorry for that terrible child. His mother must have done gone and not thought him no manners!” She actually wanted me to bow my head and pray for him. (Even though I went to his house and punched him out the next day.) My friends would tease me for spending the whole summer with Sadie Johnson, “The cookoo of Connecticut,” they called her.
It just expresses how much King is against war in general, just like how “Letter from Birmingham Jail” expressed how people were discriminated because of their race. Rather than it being just about how war is bad, it was also directed for certain people, including Lyndon Johnson because of being so violent and being so commanding with his people. The speech clarifies how bad war is for the poor and how useless it is to send blacks to fight in Vietnam where back where they’re from, they don’t even have the necessities to survive. He said, “In 1957 when a group of us formed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, we chose as our motto: 'To save the soul of America.’” This shows that his opposition to the war is affirmative and that his decision is not going to change any time soon. Something that changed, on the other hand, is the numbers of supporters he had.
Rosa Parks was an African American woman who disobeyed an order to give up her seat to a white man on the bus. She would then be dragged off the bus and was fined. This is the first well-known time that a black person had violated the segregation laws. Rosa’s brother had asked Martin Luther King Jr. to help with the boycott. He agreed and then he warned other ministers about the boycott.
One of the harshest stereotypes is that people say.” All correction officers are crooked and they mistreat all prisoners and are racist.” These stereotypes are really exaggerated especially because they have no idea what they are talking about. For a movie they watched they are going to think bad for these people that's not fair for these officers. There is one that i do agree with some of the people when they said ,” Correction officers are really racist to black men and mexican people.” I agree with this i had a interview with the warden from chowchilla and he told me that there is a lot of racism in prisons they had have to fire many officers for being really racist to black men. It's usually the white men being racist to the black men but , the black men can't really do anything. The only way the people that are being targeted and being racist is if they talk to the warden and they see in the cameras then they can get the other correction officers that have been racist gets fired really quick and get that attached to their record so, everywhere they go to work racist will be attached to there
Why Did L.B.J. Sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Do you think L.B.J. pushed the Civil Rights Bill for politics or Principle? The reason the Civil Rights was even started was because the blacks was not getting equally rights and getting denied to vote.
Plessy vs Ferguson was a controversial case which came up with the phrase "separate but equal." The case started when Louisiana tried to establish a law that would segregate blacks and white on trains like many states had done. However the black community in New Orleans did not like it however the state legislature approved the law even though there were blacks in the legislature. In 1892 a man named Homer Plessy sat in the white compartment of a train and was kicked off the train by the conductor. Later, lawyer named Albion Tourgee argued that the law was unconstitutional and took it to Supreme Court where the Supreme Court rejected it and ruled in the favor of the law.
They would treat them with such hostility, like if their lives didn’t matter to them. Everything in the diner was a chaos, there was food everywhere. I wanted to help, but I was paralyzed by the fact that everyone was so cruel to them. I decided to call the police so that they would stop all this insanity. They came and I quickly approached them.
