Similar to Mrs. Turpin in “Revelation” when she is in the waiting room of the doctor’s office she, is looking and sizing up all the people in there, she notices a mother who she classifies as white trash. She then goes on to thank Jesus that she is not white trash. Regina and Mrs. Turpin were both found rudely criticizing another person by their appearance.

Similar to Regina she is rudely criticizing her wardrobe choices.
On the same street as her house, “garages and cotton gins had encroached and obliterated even the august names of that neighborhood; only Miss Emily’s house was left” (451). These changes on the street cause her house to look out of place, because her house is from the Old South while everything else is the New South.

One change in the town was “when the town got free postal delivery, Miss Emily rejected letting them fasten the metal numbers above her door and attach a mailbox to it” (455).

In the time that the men were on the ice, there were shortages of food and the dogs didn’t help because “The dogs required a seal a day.” As you can imagine during a food shortage and you have a team of dogs that’s a lot of seals, and that’s not good now is it? A result of the dogs quickly eating all the meat the men had stored was that they were all shot. Even the food the men were eating started turning against them. Too much seal meat gave the men gas “The men suffered from a diet of that consisted of almost entirely meat. Constipation and flatulence (bad gas) made the men more uncomfortable.”(67).
Society was cruel through their lifestyles. Different people at these time were treated badly because of their age, race and gender. In the bunkhouse Carlson wants to kill Candy’s dog because of its stinking the bunkhouse. “ Well I can’t stand him in here,” said Carlson “That stink hangs around even after he’s gone.” He walked over with a heavy-legged stride and looked down at the dog. “Got no teeth he’s all stiff, he ain’t no good for you Candy” Before winning the fight and quickly says to the dog “come, on, boy.” This tells us by Carlson saying “Got no teeth he’s all stiff” tells us that Carlson thinks that if something is old and can’t take care of it’s self it should be killed.
Inhumane In the memoir Night by Elie Wiesel, the theme man's inhumanity man relates to cruelty by calling them names, treating them horribly, and making them look the same.

This quote shows the reader how the Nazis treated the Jews when they are marching to Gleiwitz. The barracks the Jews stayed in were unsanitary and they barely have any food.
Green Hat - Creative Solution By Sayanti Pal Food poverty is the situation where people are unable to approach a proper diet which is required for the nourishment of the body. The food lacks essential food elements like vitamins, iron, protein, calcium and many more things. One of the main causes of food poverty is “food wastage” i.e., lack of availability of food. We produce enough food to feed people but still millions of people are starving for food. If we reduce food wastage it could help to provide food to the starving people.
They cannot let them rebel or strike or it will spell the end of all they know. Furthermore, the landowners and bank owners fear the Okies because of their massive population size; they have the power to overpower them. “Okies-the owners hated them because the owners knew they were soft and the Okies strong, that they were fed and the Okies hungry; and perhaps the owners had heard from their grandfathers how easy it is to steal land from a soft man if you are fierce and hungry and armed. The owners hated them.” (Steinbeck 279). The owners and banks know that the only way to keep them from rebelling is to stomp on them, separate them and ensure they are always hungry and without a home.
Sooner or later Jurgis would become aware of the horrible factory conditions that exploited the workers. He later became a victim himself. Jurgis witnessed the lack of sanitation. Such as: diseased animals mixed with the rest, rats crawling all over the meat, often the factories would hire extra staff just to keep pay down, and finally the incident that I find the most disgusting to happen is people falling into the meat chutes and everybody ignored it and left the people to be packaged like any other ground meat. The family was tricked into faulty business deals which forced everyone in the family to work.
