Walter proves this foreshadowing as he is talking to Travis and says, "...your daddy's gonna make a transaction... a business transaction that's going to change our lives" (Hansberry 547). In this line, Walter is hinting at the liquor store investment, that no one in the family approves. A few days later, Bobo pays the Younger's a visit to update Walter on the investment. Walter finds out, along with the rest of the family, that Willy, their other business partner took all of the money and ran off with it. This upsets the whole family and Mama says to Walter, "You mean...your sister's school money...you used that too...?"
In Tony Went to the Bodega but He Didn’t Buy Anything, Martín Espada shows how culture shock can affect someone who is a minority. The poem starts off by telling us “Tony’s father left the family” (line 1) and immediately I felt sad for Tony, but then it goes on to say that he was a boy who was “nine years old who had to find work” (lines 4-5). Not only does Tony not have a father figure growing up, but due to his financial situation, he now must find a job despite being so young. This is not uncommon because race and socio-economic status are tied, so many minorities have to find jobs at younger, even illegal ages to support their families. At the bodega, Tony not only learns more about his workplace, he learns more about Latino culture.
This shows how Jews being silent and secretive in order to survive could lead to violence, or even death, if caught. Cohn and Pfefer were left hanging in the streets for a whole week, to let the other Jews know what could happen to them if they were caught dealing or buying from the black market. However, the black market was sometimes the only way for Jews to survive; they needed food to live. They had to risk their life in order to survive. Furthermore, when Art is again interviewing his father, he asks about Vladek’s family helping him out with money; he asks why they would not help him with buying food or paying for anything.
As Johnny goes through this difficult stage in life he decides to run away not thinking about where he’s going to stay or how he’s going to get food.

In the text, Johnny comes home after getting a good report from school and his foster mother and sister tell him that he is not going to be living with them anymore.

He wasn’t like a caring husband helping the search he made himself look guilty doing it. I read an article that said “But authorities watching Scott Peterson proved that he visited the marina five times in five different rented vehicles as law enforcement officers searched the bay before the bodies were recovered, surmising that he was “checking to see if searchers were looking in the right place” (Stapley).

Five years ago, I worked for Publix Supermarket, and I lived in Warner Robins Georgia. This next weekend was inventory time and the entire store was to be counted by Monday morning.
