Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do.

It’s crazy how many people are unemployed in the US right now and with people believing there will be an 80% stock market crash in 2016, things could only get worse. It’s certainly hard for many people to keep a job or life while trying to live off of $7.50 an hour.

While the factories were still making the goods, Americans could not afford the goods and the factories made no money. Farmers weren't doing so well because they were growing more crops and farm products than could be sold at high prices. The uneven distribution of wealth that took place throughout the 1920s grew substantially during the Great Depression and the 1930s.

When Smith saw the kid being beat up he did not say anything because he was afraid of how society would react, or label him, so society made Smith fearful of it’s reaction causing him to not say anything. So society not only limited him but his power to say something, limiting his words. Another example of society limiting people and the power of words is in Oprah’s Cecil B. deMille acceptance speech.

According to the narration of her essay, her parents were increasingly opposed to the Gloria's decision to move study away from home.
