The United States is not living up to its ideals of freedom, liberty, and justice for all no matter their race. Athletes are bringing awareness by a peaceful protest, which is protected under the first amendment for those who are oppressed. My cousin, a veteran, has also influenced my view on this situation. Seeing my own family member put their life in danger to save millions of others does not add up to someone kneeling on the sideline during the National Anthem.
The short story All Summer in a Day, by Ray Bradbury shows how many people don’t think about the results from their actions and reveals that many people do not pause and look at the consequences from their actions and reveals that if people aren’t thinking before they act they will really affect someone. In this short story there are many examples of when someone on Venus suffers because they do not contemplate the consequences from their actions from their actions. Each 9 year old has an experience in this story where they have been hurt because of simply not thinking. While many may argue the major theme in All Summer in a Day may be that it is not okay to let jealousy get the best of you, the vital point is that you must think about the consequences from your actions. All throughout the short story Margot doesn’t participate and have fun with her peers on Venus.
In “All day in a Summer” everyone thought that the sun wouldn’t come out. In All day in a Summer it says,” Don’t wait around here! Cried the boy savagely. “You won’t see nothing!” In this quote it shows how the people didn’t believe that the sun would come out.
One side believes that their own race is better than another person’s or sees other races as inferior. Another side believes that all races should be treated equal because skin tone should not determine how people treat one another. Some do not even acknowledge that racism is a problem at all. All these conflicting views make it hard to come to a solution on how to fix the problem. It also prevents the United States from being whole.
When games were played, Margot did not join in. When the class sung, Margot did not join unless they sung about the sun. For this, her classmates treated her terribly and did not believe her whenever she spoke about the supposedly hot, round, circle in the sky called the sun. All together,
First of All Summer in a Day and Zero Hour there are poor decisions made due to their hunger for power, and things they did not have. One example of this is on page 2 of All Summer in a Day where it says, “‘It’s like a penny,’ she said once, eyes closed. ‘No it’s not!’ the children cried.’ The children would have listened to Margot and tried to understand instead of immediately shutting her down if they weren’t being manipulated by their lust for the sun they have heard about.
The children don’t trust Margot’s memory, because of jealousy and lack of respect. To conclude, the short story All Summer in a Day, by Ray Bradbury, doesn’t support the claim that skepticism should be used at all times, and it tells to be a little more leaned
Angelou does that by questioning and specifying the blacks “broken” (l 13), “Bowed head” (l 14) and “lowered eyes” (l 14), by doing that we interpret the hatred and violence towards the black people. The broken, bowed head and lowered eyes is a sign of not being able to withstand the movement that is being progressed. Angelou wants us to realise the struggle that the black people have gone through. Moreover, the white people’s hatred of the black people have influenced them in a way, where they see the white people as brutal. “You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes” (ll 20-21) is an implication for the amount of torment they’ve gone though.
Kaepernick 's "statement" was based on the assumption that his standing for our nation 's flag is equivalent to him supporting the oppression of people of color that America is struggling with, equivalent to validation of problematic instances that contribute to greater problems the country is in the process of working through. Kaepernick kneeled as a plea for humanity. He thought that human beings of a different race should be given the same respect, compassion, and fair treatment as other human beings. He wanted police officers to not profile or kill minorities in a disproportionate fashion. He asked this because he loves the U.S. and knows that love isn’t pretending that what you love is perfect, but shows itself in wanting the object of your love to be the best version of itself.
She remembered… the way the sun was and the sky was when she was four in Ohio” (Bradbury 1). This quote clearly shows that Margot was different from the rest of the students because she got to experience what others could not: the sun. She never fit in with the other students, not only because of her remembrance of the sun, but also because of her actions. She would never sing songs with them or play with the other students. It was as if she was a puzzle piece which was a part of a totally different set, like a wild card.
People are only recognized for the bad qualities in themselves by society, government, and a huge majority of the world. Never has there been a world where everyone has equality. Every citizen’s equal rights should be legally recognized and if they don’t,
Having your audience understand the purpose of a reading is determined by the author’s choice of words and valid information to support the purpose, but none of those would make sense without an explanation for that detail. David Foster Wallace, the commencement speaker of the speech “This is Water” and Paul Bloom author of the online magazine article “The Baby in the Well” are two good examples of writing that is able understand the purpose’s of each written piece . Wallace’s purpose is that it is graduates’ responsibility to create their own future and but be able to think in an unselfish matter. Bloom’s purpose is that his audience needs to be critical of empathy because sometimes empathy is not n’t automatically the best response. Wallace
In Shaun Tan’s Arrival, the pictures prompt me to give an underscore of sound to them. Adding sound can strengthen the artist vision for the audience. For the first section of pictures, I would start off underscoring a sound of a ticking clock. Then, I would fade in sound of a stirring pot. After that, I would send in the sounds of a whistling tea kettle.
