In E.M. Forster 's A Passage to India, the central question of the novel “Can British and Indians ever truly be friends?” is brought about as a result of the prejudice that is heaped upon the Indians by the British. This racism takes two separate forms in the novel: the explicit, hard-line racism embodied by Ronny Heaslop and Mr. McBryde and the softer racism that Adela displays. However, despite the hard form of racism being more explicit in the book, it is the softer racism which damages the relationship between the Indians and British the most. The hard line bigotry of some of the British characters is evident in the club, an enclave of British life and culture within Chandrapore. Although the British are foreigners in India, few bother to learn about the Indians and instead avoid them altogether.
It is apparent that both novels are in tune with the theme of division of social class in the society. The Kite Runner examines the whole spectrum of racism; Hassan who was treated disrespectfully by his peers who are the majority, Sunni Muslims because he is the minority, the Hazara (Shi’a Muslims). This leads to nasty discrimination based on physical features and religious beliefs. Significantly, Hosseini mentions in the novel that Amir is reading, "the Pashtuns had persecuted and oppressed the Hazaras” from his mother’s history book which can be found on page 9. Additionally, Ali, who is a Hazara, is ridiculed by the neighborhood people on page 10 coupled with Assef’s mocking, calling Hassan flat nose.
Political Paragraph British imperialism had a negative effect on the politics of India because of the corrupt justice system, and the utter lack of respect that killed masses of innocent people. In the article Lalvani states that, the British “established the framework for India’s justice system, civil service, loyal army and efficient police force”. The British may have set up a government but the framework, however, did not include Indians. “ Of 960 civil offices...900 are occupied by Englishmen and only 60 by natives” (Doc 2). In no way are 60 voices of a race considered ‘savage’ going to overpower 900 white men, who could easily kill them for taking a stand, or trying to change the unjust laws that are
He is both short and an introvert, which doesn’t fit his Alpha-Plus society. Bernard said “... Remember, they’ve had at least a quarter of a million warning against solitude,” (182). Even though it isn’t seen as a positive activity in the society, Bernard still enjoys being alone. Throughout the book, Brave New World, Bernard continues to be a contrasting character to most of the other characters in the book, especially Helmholtz Watson.
The high level of corruption portrayed by the country’s founding leaders prompted the first military coup on January 15, 1966. Clearly, not everybody has the leadership acumen to lead a country. The disaster that marked the administration of Alhaji Shehu Shagari, the lack of transparency during Gowon’s rule, the “fantastically-corrupt” Babangida’s regime, and the horrible looting that occurred during the time of General Sani Abacha are quick reminders. During Shagari’s inept administration, there was widespread corruption and grave economic mismanagement. Alhaji Shehu Shagari wasted the unique opportunity created by Generals Murtala Mohammed and Olusegun Obasanjo to keep the light of democracy shinning in Nigeria.
Racism deflects the interpersonal relationships because every race exalts their own and looks down on other races. Othello is one of the fascinating literature work by Shakespeare that describes the evident of racism in societies, its destructive effects on society and people’s attitudes. The tragedy in Othello may seem to be as a result of jealousy but deep inside, it is a tragedy rooted deeply in racial conflict. This play was written in a time when the minorities were less important and could easily be ignored by the majority race: it was almost impossible for a black man to hold a higher rank in the society and earning respect from the white people. This paper will discuss the theme of racism in Othello, show its effects on society and specific characters like Othello who felt the impact of prejudice.
Major Callander, due to negative attitude towards the Indians, does not like to take pains and leave a clear message. This shows his insulting behavior. On the other hand, Dr Aziz writes a short message for his boss. Every word of the message is a reflection of his humbleness and inferiority, the aggrandizement of the English ruling community. "Dear sir.
Health, according to our book, is the “state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being” (Macionis). Racism refers to “the assertion that people of one race are less worthy than or even biologically inferior to others, is the most serious example of prejudice” (Macionis). As we can see from the first example the article is giving us, there is a problem towards black people in England’s mental health care system. That is something we need to have clear. Echo Egbouno is a man who needed help and instead he ended up at the police station, made him look and feel like a criminal.
Interracial relationships are not the issues, it is allowing society to determine who a person should love. These men in Lonely Londoners are lonely because they are too focused on color and restitution for ancestral mistakes, instead of moving past it. If these men focused on their own livelihoods instead of paying attention to the ignorant, old ways of some English people, they would not be so miserable. Many people blame color for their downfalls, when it is the mindset. All this violence and animosity towards races makes it very difficult to want to fight for interracial love because people fail to close their eyes to affairs that are not their business.
