However, as he grew up he became more associated with the harshness of slavery from his father who by no means was kind to the slaves. From witnessing these events Rufus would forever be changed. It would turn him into a man that would do what he believed to be wrong because he knew it was the only way it would work. When he got Alice to be with him romantically he tried to rape her and when that did not work, he used Dana to try and talk to Alice to get her to change her mind. When talking to Dana it became apparent that Rufus knew what he was doing was wrong, but he did not care because it was okay to do it

Love is not when someone can not accept and care for themselves or others. This is also shown in the film “ La Mission” when Che finds out that his son Jesse is homosexual and can not accept him, at first. In the film, Che and Jesse begin to fight, then Che tells Jesse, “I want you out of my house. You make me sick to my stomach. From now on you're dead to me.”
To kill a mockingbird has the theme it is important to recognize all humans deserve respect regardless of their place society. Not all citizens of Maycomb weren't treated equally and with respect. For instance Arthur, “Boo” Radley was treated unequally and badly because no one knew about him so they began with rumors and pictured as an evil monster. Bob Ewell was born into racism and abuse and people judge him thinking he wants to do what he does but he was raised this way. And last but not least Tom Robinson was disrespected not because he did something but due to the color of his
He drops to his knees and his vision blurred because he's so shocked that everyone knows about him and his fantasies. The main character has fantasies about being abused probably from watching his father abuse his mother. In his mind he believes that being forced into sexual encounters is normal. When you watch your family do something on a regular basis you start to believe that that's what you're supposed to do and that this is a normal way of thinking. Since he doesn't know this is wrong then he will continue the cycle on to his kids, like his father showed
Lecture 's sadism was mixed with his narcissism as he chose to eat his victims to disrespect their very existence. He had no more respect for his victims than he did for a common chicken or a stray animal. While traveling through the series a person will discover that Dr. Lecture had been witness to the cannibalism of his sister alongside the death of his parents. He spent many years living in orphanages being mute and obviously suffered from a form of PTSD. Any person who had this suffered through these experiences could not have some sort of mental trauma to witness such an act.
The Talib did not care because he was like that when he was young. He liked torturing people and beating them up. “I closed my eyes and covered my face with my hands” (Hosseini 271). It may look like the author is for man’s inhumanity to man, but he is not. The only reasons he brings up all that happens, is to show the readers what is happening in the world and how some people are completely oblivious to it.
The third reason that Atticus should not have defended Tom Robinson is because their Aunt, Uncle, and cousin show disgust. When Atticus and his family go visit some of their immediate relatives, the tension is evident. Scout's Aunt and Uncle don't agree with Atticus’s decision and their disgust is clearly shown. Their disgust even rubs off on their only child, Francis, who acts like an annoying fly that you can't swat away(simile), taunts Scout with cruel words.
Power razes all of its enemies to the ground, and its enemies are ignorant of its presence. Power negatively affects others by turning someone with power on their allies, making the owner paranoid, and diminishing common sense. In Antigone, King Creon turned on his own niece in order to preserve his self-serving law. Power turns the holder onto their allies. Creon created fear in the hearts of his own sentries who selflessly worked hours keeping him safe.
In the novel Black Boy, Wright is living a life filled with constant neglect and segregation; however, even as a child, he was able to accept others without hurting them. When Mrs. Moss was obviously trying to force the idea of marriage with her daughter to Wright, he just simply replied that he didn’t want to get involved in her life and that he didn’t want to hurt her (Wright 213). This is just an example of one person who has accepted the idea of tolerance. During this exact time, Wright was being misjudged and mistreated by the people who believed that they were better than him. The flag case in “American Flag Stands For Tolerance” resulted in the freedom of Gregory Lee Johnson because the ultimate irony would have been to punish views expressed by burning the flag that stands for the right to those expressions (Allen 20).
He seated himself and looked at me with withering scorn”. Not even saying a word, this man has Jacobs uneasy and her children fearful. When he does finally open his mouth is it to mock her by saying her master is tired of her, laughing in her face, and ridiculing her in front of her children. Being told all of these horrible qualities that Jacobs apparently has with her children present is demening. Although her children know that the doctor is a terrible man, having those kind of thoughts ringing though her head must have been awful for her mental state.
