She wouldn’t apologize so they took her to jail. On the way to jail Rosaleen got beat up when the police officer was right there. Lily thought to herself, “Why couldn’t you just apologize?”On page 135, Zach gets Lily a notebook with rosebuds on the front. Zach said, “‘Lily, I like you better than any girl I’ve ever known, but you have to understand, there are people who would kill boys like me for even looking at girls like you.’”This means that bad things could happen if Zach and Lily had a relationship because he is black and she is
That Curley got his work cut out for him. Ranch with a bunch of guys on it ain’t no place for a girl, ‘specially like her.” (Steinbeck 51). In this text, George is talking about Curley’s wife, who is the only female character in this novel and is not given a name. Steinbeck tries to get the point across that women are less valued than men, giving her no name other than Curley’s wife quickly tell the reader, women are irrelevant in this era. Although Curley’s wife may be a temptress who seeks for attention, she suffers from prejudice.
Because even though she was sick and had issues, she should have at least been accepting by her family, she had no one and all she needed was family or a friend. “A Jury of Her Peers” writtenby Susan Glaspellreveals a short story, of the struggle of women in a male-dominated society. Minnie Foster Wright who is in jail, because the police think that she strangled her husband. Police looked around her house while Mrs. Hale stayed with Mrs. Wright. While police are looking around the house, the two women from the community look around the kitchen to see what clues they can find to figure out why Minnie would do this.
My second reason is that it proved some very good points about indifference and how it is bad. The speech also brought the conversation outside of the Holocaust. “In a way, to be indifferent to that suffering is what makes the human being inhuman”. (Wiesel) This is an example of one of his many interesting, thought provoking quotes from the
We can see this in the essay “Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate The Smart Kids” by Grant Penrod explains why anti-intellectualism exists in our society and why intellectuals are despised instead of praised for their hard work. He writes “Certainly the image presented by modern celebrities suggests that intellectualism has no ties to success and social legitimacy”(760). What Penrod is saying is that the media glorifies non-intellectuals which in result makes intellectuals lose their ambition to continue with their accomplishments. Intellectuals conform to the idea that there are people who are looked up to who don 't have intellectualism so why should they? What is revealed is that Conformity hurts those individuals that may think differently, and makes them lose particular characteristics that make them different.

In Of Mice of Men by John Steinbeck was banned because of the use of the word God in a profane way, objectification of the black characters, and the portrayal of prostitution throughout the book. Steinbeck wanted to illustrate how people talked and acted towards black people and the portrayal of prostitution with everyone being short on money they would do whatever it takes to get a paycheck. From my experience from reading Of mice and men, I didn't think anything was wrong with the book at all I thought it was a great book. Giving I was in 11th grade when I read the book but still if I had a kid and they had to read this book I would be happy due to the good life lessons they use in the book. Now I'm not saying a support dropping the n-word every other page but that's on how they talked during that time period and two its was used in a sorta nicer way if that even makes sense.
How much courage does it take to speak up? Elie Wiesel (a holocaust survivor) says that “…remaining silent encourages even more evil to happen”. Not speaking up in difficult times does nothing but make matters worse. There are two reasons that staying silent should be discouraged; speaking instead of being silent can change the outcome of an event, and prevent the doubts victims have about their abilities in life.In reality, speaking instead of staying silent can change the outcome of an event. For example, in the book Terrible Things (an allegory of the holocaust), a character says, “If only we creatures had stuck together, it could have been different”.
The issue that Jane finds in taking these perspective whole-hearty is that their perspectives only suit themselves. With Mr. Brocklehurst, he is a poor exemplar for Jane because he is a hypocrite to his own principles. With Helen Burns, her benevolent perspective is incompatible with
“and what do you say?” - “Let’s drop it,” he suggested. - “No, we will not, damn you,” said Duniya. - “I want you to tell me what you think about Kaahin, not what people say,” she shouted. “Give me your opinion, not other people’s.” - “He embarrasses me, and embarrasses Mire for bringing our names into disrepute, our names which he uses as though they were certificates of respectable contacts. And I agree with you, he hates women, in fact he hates himself, and his attitude towards women is testimony to this, a means by which he deceives himself.” - “The man is a misogynist,” said Duniya, “hiding behind fancy-looking cars and mountains of laundered money.
