His singular style of play brought joy to millions, and has likewise led to the spread of cultural acceptance mentality that is present in his songs. Dave Matthews was an exceptional player who brought something fresh to the table where the music industry was dominated by rap and grime music. His music, instead of containing lyrics that hold contempt for others, preached acceptance of all polishes. Matthews was also an incredible success with successful multiple visits and a great fan base that allowed Matthews to achieve four platinum albums, and one independent album gold. The music of Dave Matthews preaches acceptance of cultures, and I think Matthews intends to shift the point of persuasion of people about different cultures through his speech.
In conclusion, racism is an awful idea that used to be very present, but now everyone can accept every race most of the time. This is only because race and racism are social constructs that are no help to anything, and this is why racism is not relevant today. Finally, in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, we learn how racism affected people, now, things have changed and racism doesn’t affect people as much, because race is a social construct, is not as relevant today and we have developed acceptance of every
In fact, Shrek is not only an ogre, but a green ogre. The many struggles that faced Fiona and Shrek explains how race is an issue for him. His situation with Fiona is an example of interracial marriage and the plot as a whole shows how stigmatic society is. Fiona kept insisting in Shrek II that they should not judge Shrek by his appearance. In fact, prior to 1967 interracial marriage as well as interracial sexual relationships were banned and highly restricted in many countries such as Germany, South Africa and the United States.
This determines that even though one might be diverse or stand out from a group of people, one never should be ashamed of the differences between them and society’s standards. Many Greasers don’t have a lot of money, drive the best cars, get the best girls, chances to go to college, and have a loving and supportive family life; that does not make them any less of an individual. The Greasers wear their hair long, put grease in their hair, and “...have a gang fight once in a while”(page 3). They embrace their unique characteristics even if it is different from the Socs. The song “Firework” clearly represents the novel The Outsiders written by S.E Hinton.
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
However that is something that makes the film fascinating. Excessively numerous films about race are built up and established in the past but still contain the states of mind of the present. Because of this, as a result of it, we as audience get contemporary pie-ties about the past, and they do great damage since they conceal the past itself from us. The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith re-makes its other time effectively that we leave the theater in solid identification with its Hero, Jimmie. We do not support him nor do we condone him, but we comprehend him.
Equality Within the comforts of the modernized human civilization that we all experience on a daily basis, a person can easily forget how privileged they are to be existing in such a time of human equality. However, times were not always as pleasant as they currently are, as different diversities of people were not only shamed for their race, gender or ethnicity, but they were abused for it. That being said, if abusive behaviors like human trafficking and racial discrimination can still be found in today’s modern world, then discriminatory practices or rules back several centuries ago must have been a common part of daily life for ancient societies. In the Odyssey, the poem’s epic hero, Odysseus, finds himself and his crew in many horrible situations while he persistently sails across the seas in quest to find his long lost home in Ithaca, Greece. Throughout Homer’s epic, it can be noticed quite easily that there are several powerful goddesses all
This is significant, because the boss gave Crooks hell even though he didn’t do anything to “deserve it.” This is convincing me that there is discrimination in the book, even from only the start, because neither George or Lennie are given hell for being late. I don’t know if the boss usually does it, or if it was just in this part, but it definitely impacts the book, even from just the state All in all, there is a lot of discrimination in the book. As I showed you, there are many instances where this discrimination is shown. Crooks suffers from discrimination. The book gives examples that show us that at this time, people didn’t realize that differences make us special.
While our world is far more accepting of breaking the male female stereotypes there are still many in society who are reluctant to break from the past. However mountain bikers are a strong group who share a love and a passion for mountain biking so when we encounter another rider, whether it be a male or female. We naturally gravitate towards them bound by a commonality of bikes and dirt, therefore in our world of riding as a community, stereotypes and assumptions tend to melt
Fast forward to now and we are around each other more and we do a lot more together, mainly because we can drive now. We have bonded a lot through riding motorcycles together and just having fun all around. Zach is a good guy to be friends with in my opinion. He values his family, friendships, motorcycle, and every other toy he has bought. He will be there for just about all of his friends.
