Monsters are common symbols in American popular culture, even if they are vampires, aliens or Frankensteins. Expressing fears and anxieties through them is a long term phenomenon. However, one monster is exceptional throughout the history of American popular culture: The zombie.

According to Hamilton, Hercules had to “...kill the lion of Nemea, a beast no weapons could wound” (231).

In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, we see a new take on what a “zombie” can be interpreted as a compiled monster that roams around lost and alone. The main character Victor Frankenstein engenders this new being of life -- a monster made out of multiple body parts found at a cemetery and a morgue.

Jim Crow laws have deprived many American citizens of their civil rights by, being prohibited to things such as interracial marriage, whites and colored going to the same schools, and not getting service at restaurants. This Jim Crow laws have made it very hard for American citizens to do everyday activities that seem so impossible to think about not having. One Jim crow law states “All marriages between a white person and a negro or person, or between a white person and a person of negro descent to the fourth generation inclusive, are hereby forever prohibited. ( Florida) This makes the civil rights of American citizens very different financially and emotionally.

Speaking out against the abuse of science in Flowers for Algernon is Fanny Girden, one of Charlie’s coworkers. “... she whispered: ‘It was evil when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge. It was evil when they saw they was naked, and learned about lust and shame… If not for that none of us would have to grow old and be sick and die.’” (Keyes 107).
The Dollar Menu at McDonald 's may appear inexpensive, but is the food as appealing as the price? After watching a documentary that exposes an unethical way farms and factories produce our food, it has made me thankful that I decided years ago to not eat fast food “meat.” Although I don’t eat fast food meat, Food, Inc. has made me reconsider eating fast food at all. Even though countless fast food joints claim that their food is locally produced and grown, I know that most of the items on the menu may have come from a factory.
