The whole world knows that African-American society has faced many crises over the past few decades, including the slave trade, racial discrimination, injustice, and hunger. In fact, all these events led to the loss of black identity. Here in the novel "Native Son" will try to highlight the main character "Bigger" in the novel and how the environment affected him.

Most estimates places the number of insurgents killed at around 1,200 to 1,500, with some estimations as high as over 2,000 killed. Coalition forces also captured approximately 1,500 insurgents during the operation. Multiple medals of heroism were rewarded, such as First Sergeant Bradley Kasal and Sergeant Rafael Peralta, who both received Navy Crosses for actions made during the battle. The city itself suffered immensely from the loss of residences, mosques, city services, and businesses.

The top 10 countries that suffer from hunger are Burundi, Eritrea, Comoros, Timor Leste, Sudan, Chad, Yemen Republic, Ethiopia, Madagascar and Zambia, respectively (guy-allen, 2014). Most of these countries have more at least 30% of the population, undernourished. The highest number of countries that suffer from hunger are located in Africa and the major cause of hunger in African nations is famine and it was responsible for 2 million lives alone in 1985 and hundreds of thousands every year since then (Akther U. ahmed, 2007). These statistics show us just how severe this problem is and why we must take action in abolishing or at the least, reducing world hunger. In the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi, "you may never know what results come of your actions but if you do nothing, there will be no results at all".
