Bharati was settling for “fluidity, self-invention, blue jeans, and T-shirts”(268). Bharati decided to be a part of a new community by marrying someone of a different community and living an American lifestyle. Unlike Mira, Bharati has adapted to the American community and has become a part of it. However, like Mira, she too has not felt welcomed in a community. Bharati compares Mira’s situation in America to one that she faced in Canada, where the government turned against the immigrants.
Yolanda travels to her homeland in order to find her cultural and personal identity. Leaving her native country to America at a young age she “…was losing her Spanish…”(Alvarez 1300) and culture that forms her family background and national heritage. For this reason, she approaches situations differently than the rest of her extended family, and there is a gap between their cultural perspectives and her own. This gap leads to a certain distance between her and the other members of the family. Yolanda “…never felt at home in the States…” (Alvarez 1304) and is experiencing the same alienation feelings with her family.
I’m the first generation of my family to be Mexican -American, but I have been introduced to the Mexican culture since I was born. I appreciate the difficulties my parents have faced to make me the person that I am today even though I wasn’t born in Mexico my parents have taught me the language and the culture which I’m so proud of being part of. For others being Hispanic is actually being born in any Latin American countries which is not true at all. Being Hispanic is much more than my cultural background it actually describes how much I appreciate my culture and how I get to experience things other people don’t. I fit into the Hispanic community through the experiencing the culture first hand ,participating in traditions and planning to include my culture in my future.
She writes “we’d been warned to stay away from the small patch of poison ivy that grew around the base of my grandparents’ backyard. But that year had been as theoretical as the segregation surrounding us. We saw the white people when we went downtown or as we drove through their neighborhoods on our way to visit relatives.” I believe that the poison ivy is a metaphor for racism and segregation. The ivy had always existed, but to Jacqueline it was theoretical because she had never experienced it. The racism was always looming above her head, but she wasn't wise enough to realize that it was there, later tainting her perception of home.
(2017), Ethical dilemmas, also known as a moral dilemmas, are situations in which there is a choice to be made between two options, neither of which resolves the situation in an ethical acceptable fashion. The strategy would best serve the family and provide resolution would be to find a way to get legalized in the United States or to return home to Mexico. The mother did experience discrimination while working on a job, but there was little to be done because she was illegal. According to Molina (2017), the Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping set of order that
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
The Mexican people believe that any important decision within the family should be taken after all members in the family had their voice heard. This includes all relative from both the mother’s and father’s side. Grandparents and relatives take a huge part of raising children and it is common to have dozens of cousins, uncles and aunts. When it comes to the financial status, Mexicans care more about the status of the entire family and social status does not matter to them, Mexicans care about the sustenance of all. One example of unity is when a relative or family member is facing money problems, the family is always ready to help.
At first I thought it was all a joke, but once I heard my mom say “You and your sister are going to Mexico” I was scared because I would hear a lot of bad things that happen there like people getting robbed,kidnapped killed etc. I told my mom that I did not wanna go but she insisted and said “You're going either way” so I had no other choice but to go along with what she said. A couple days passed and we started talking about things that me and my sister should expect when we’re there like weather,food,lifestyle etc. : I remember from 3 months ago My mom had brought up the same thing, asking me if I would want to go to Mexico and visit her hometown. At that time I was excited to go and really happy to visit and meet all of my family members that I've never met
The alcohol did not just affect the individual drinking it, but their families, friends, and the community as a whole. Although alcohol did play a huge role in the decline of Cedarville, I believe that Timothy Shay Arthur had a larger message for his audience. Parental neglect played the bigger role in the tragedies that occurred. If Joe Morgan had not turned to alcohol, his daughter Mary would have never been at the bar the night of her accident. If he had only stayed home with his family, she would have never had a glass thrown at her head.
For a long while, mom never had the chance to check my gender, Mexico wasn’t the kindest to its people when it comes to medical care; and so she assumed I would be a guy. She bought boy toys, clothes, picked out the name Ricardo, meaning powerful ruler, and had the room ready once she came over here. At my birth mom realized just what gender I was, and so named me after a family member who was just as headstrong as she was.
I heard the Judge blame Jamie, not the mother, for not performing visitation. The Judge did say that Jamie’s needs would change, while completely ignoring the actions of the mother that have led to the alienation. The mother sat there smugly as the Judge let her own daughter be blamed. The actions of the Judge that day combined with her older daughter’s justified desire not to be anywhere near her mother has emboldened the mother leading to her complete lack of meaningful cooperation with the Parenting Plan. 8.
My mind comes to the ultimate conclusion, I have no words to say to her to make any of this better. My mind right now is spinning, literally spinning. I suppose I never truly realized what Diana’s life was like in ways. Her mother an immigrant from Mexico, she associates herself so much with that culture. In many ways we related, our parents were divorced, w bth had not so great dads, we both were close to our families.
