The most obvious instance is during book two when a blind African-American piano player named Samson d’Arnault comes to the town of Black Hawk. Cather portrays him in what may seem to be a positive light; however, the undertone of the depiction is purely racist. “He had the Negro head, too; almost no head at all; nothing behind the ears but folds of neck under close-clipped wool. He would have been repulsive if his face had not been so kindly and happy” (102). In her initial description of d’Arnault, Cather uses terms which can only be described as pure racism, yet she paints him in a positive light (for the most part).
Connell (1995) coins the concept of hegemonic masculinity. He defines it as the maintenance of gender practice which institutionalizes the domination of men and subordination of women, but argues that such hegemony is not always and everywhere the same. This is because his concept is center on white middle-class heterosexual american and "constructed in relation to women and to subordinate masculinities" (Connell 1987, 186). It is subject to changes that when the conditions for the defence of patriarchy differ, the dominance of certain masculine norms is weakened and there may be a new hegemony existed. Building on the hegemonic masculinity proposed by Connell (1995), five major idealized norms can be identified in American society.

Super Bowl Sunday is a very special day for a lot of people. It is the most popular sporting event in the United States and to some, is even considered a holiday. It is such a popular day that even people who are not fans of Football participate in the Super Bowl festivities. Knowing this, companies take advantage of the publicity to make some of the best, and most expensive commercials of the year. Because it is one of the most-watched American television programs, the commercial airtime is the most expensive of the year, which leads companies to develop their most creative commercials to be broadcast during the Super Bowl.
Companies make considerable investments for the sole purpose of matching their brands with the relevant celebrity endorser, perfectly. Furthermore, a huge decline in the productivity and effectiveness of other marketing communication tools (Blondé & Roozen, 2006) has led to the firms wanting to pay whatever ridiculous amounts of fee these celebrities demand for endorsing their product.

Due to the considerable costs involved in hiring celebrities, it becomes essential for the marketing and advertising managers to not only form a proper link between the quality and characteristics of the endorser with the endorsed brand's equity (Dwivedi, Lester & McDonald, 2015) but to also identify any other variables, determinants or factors which play an influential role between the relationship of endorser credibility and brand equity.
