Light ain’t right unless you want to sleep on the streets” (Kohan). She has made her own foster child a part of her drug business in order to live with her. Not only does this set a bad example for RJ of how the proper reward of hardworking is earned, but also puts him in a position to choose; sleep on the streets or sell Vee’s drugs. Vee covers this up when Taystee calls her out for being a “connect” and says she is a business woman (Kohan). Vee was given no reason in this season to say why she does not have a real job or why perhaps she may not be able to get one.
Back in the Nazi's period kindness was not essay thing to be found in people's heart. Hans Hubermann was one of the few people that kindness was not faded from his heart. Hans Hubermann helped Liesel to calm down when she first arrived at his house as his new daughter. When Liesel was sitting at the corner of washroom "you know how to roll a cigarette, Hans asked her and for next few hours or so, then sat in the raising pool of darkness, playing with the tobacco and the cigarette papers and Hans smoking them (pg. 33).
She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.
She stays home, and under the warmness of the sun, she begins her day dreaming about love and the boy she has met the night before. In the beginning, the author writes “Connie sat with her eyes closed in the sun…” (Oates 12), which means that Connie falls asleep after her family left. Then right in the same paragraph, Oates also tells us that “when [Connie] opened her eyes she hardly knew where she was...She shook her head as if to get awake.” This line shows that Connie is at the start of her dream because the only time we don’t know a place is when we is
Even after experiencing the harshness of the situation, some of the Jews still think they can defeat and escape the German Concentration Camps, even though they don’t understand that there is no escaping, and resistance is futile . Rebelling would’ve been the most naive thing to do, since it would’ve failed, and would have had every Jew on that train car killed. This shows that even when the Jews see the reality of the situation, they don 't want to believe it and choose to be optimistic, which could be blamed on their religion, which grants the Jews a very positive and optimistic outcome on living. However, the Jews and Elie’s belief and faith throughout the book slowly dissipates, as they continue living under the control of the Nazis. On the other hand, some
The point came to Eli and he knew that Herschel was Jewish. Herschel gave the eye signal to Eli telling him basically please don’t let them kill me and don’t tell them I am Jewish. “Yet the tears that flow in Alex’s report when his grandfather at last reveals the truth about the massacre is a reminder of free will, of the place of free will in historical reality (Callado-Rodriguez, 64). Eli had to make a choice whether or not it was the right one he had to make it. I think love is what guided him.

She apologizes to him for the way he treated her, but I think that Black cannot forgive her after everything that she did. He finally gets to Kevin’s where he tells him that he was the only guy to ever touch him and really the only person he has ever been with. The movie ends on a touching note of they sitting similar to the way they did at the beach the night they kissed for the first
Genevieve Mahoney Mr. Mischinski English 10 - American Studies 2 March 2018 A Raisin in the Sun: An Analysis of The Kismet of Dreams Deferred “What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?” In Lorraine Hansberry’s play, A Raisin in the Sun, Hansberry details the Youngers, a zealous black family, struggling to make their dreams come true in the slums of Chicago. Langston Hughes’ poem, "A Dream Deferred," illustrates the irony of the cumulation of the American dream as it begins to crumble. The Youngers desperately pursue this American dream, hoping for opportunities of prosperity, upward social mobility, and the hope that their next generation should thrive unlike theirs. Working together, Hughes’ lines of his poem reflect the dreams of Hansberry’s characters and through this parallel, shows the effects on the Younger family when their long-awaited dreams are deferred by endless economic and family hardships as well as arduous racial boundaries.

Miss Gates was at the trial and she was excited to hear Tom Robinson was guilty.
Barton Fink, a film by brothers Ethan and Joel Coen, is meant to be a study of contrasts and contradictions. Set just before the start of World War II the story centers on the lives of two characters, the eponymous Barton Fink and his next door neighbor, the “common man” insurance salesman Charlie Meadows. Barton is presented as a young playwright from New York City whose desire is to produce “a new living theater, of and about the common man.” His craft represents “high art” but is convinced to come to Hollywood by the promise of a high salary to produce “low art” film scripts. He comes off as cold, uncaring, and perhaps a bit neurotic. Even though he can afford better living arrangements Barton chooses to stay at the Hotel Earle, a seedy drab hotel because of his desire to live like a common man.
Other tip I find pretty usefull, is to let yourself dream about your future a bit and not be scared of it. Months ago one of my closest friends told me this, when I was almost crying from the thought of moving out, losing touch with my old friends and the rutine I 'm so used to: “Just imagine yourself, laying in your own flat next year. You will hear the rain through the open balcony window and you will be drinking your coffe in bed. Every day you will go to the same bus stop. After awhile it will become your bus stop.
Similarly, she did not view the Jewish “institution’ her father was part of as legitimate because she had felt ostracized by them due to their judgment of her family business. Lastly, Ruth had a confederate in Frances, as she was willing to break with the social norms of her society and befriend Ruth (Myers, 2015; McBride, 2006). Ruth was starved for love and companionship and perhaps for someone else to confirm her worth because she lacked this in her home life (McBride, 2006). Having taken this small step to nonconformity, it was easier for Ruth to move on to larger acts of nonconformity. Similar to the foot-in-the-door phenomenon and Milgram’s experiments described
