That's when a minority of stereotypes is made. Even if humans are qualified, affirmative action bring the idea that people have more attention brought to them due to their color, or their gender. For anything to succeed, you need an equality viewpoint”(Richard). When people try and take advantage of being colored and try to make it to where they are making themselves look like they are the “top” people because they get to have opportunities that non-colored people do not have, is not being parallel and is very unfair. When society starts seeing others do something out of the ordinary or unusual, they are going to take action and most of the time it is not going to be good.
Beneatha’s money too?” (29) after she finds out he just blew all of the money. This quote emphasises the discomfort and pure shock and disappointment of Mama at losing all of the money. Mama also cries in the play, "You mean your sister 's school money, you used that too?" (29) revealing her discomfort and despair in this quote shows just how upset that she is that Walter has gone and blown all of Beneatha’s money that was going to be her future on his little gamble. This indicates Walter has forgotten just how much this means to his family and that now he has put his own greed ahead of his sister’s future.
However, King contradicts that by talking about the racism that was seen throughout the “great” country that Gregorian saw. Including that piece was important because it helps people understand that you have to see the whole picture before you can be too quick to judge something, whether it be positive or
It really taught me a lesson on just how much it can effect someone if you were to racially discriminate against another them and also that you are not only directing the person who you’ve discriminated against, but also a whole society who is with that one person and feels the effects just as much as they have. I’ve learnt that bullying and discrimination against people for who they are, for any reason, is completley absurd. The book sent eye-opening and thought-provoking messages including never to judge someone because of their colour. I would never want the feeling of demoralising another human being just because of their skin tone or their race and because they may be a “lower class”, which is what the African Americans were subjected as in the 60’s. It has made me realise that I never want to be on the end of something like that, nor prejudging other people based on their outside appearance rather than what they have on the inside which just might be a whole lot more special.
She experienced a lot of racial oppression and receives a confirmation of her own sense of ugliness. Pauline Breedlove, Pecola’s mother is also one of the people who made her feel that she is ugly. Pauline wanted a white child more because she thinks that being black is ugly. She encourages her husband’s behavior to be able to bring back her own role as a martyr.

After mentioning why racist speech is wrong, Lawrence comments “I also have a deeply felt apprehension about the resurgence of racial violence and the corresponding rise in the incidence of verbal and symbolic assault and harassment to which blacks and other traditionally subjected and excluded groups are subjected”(72). Putting emphasis on how racist actions hurt others is important for the reader to comprehend. Furthermore, the idea of free speech “reinforces our society’s commitment to tolerance as a value”(71). Gives choices to each individual to decide who and what they stand for, no more pandering and watching what others do. As a result, free speech brings community together as a whole.
It is the mother’s vulnerability to the racial standards of beauty that is transmitted to the daughter and ultimately leads to her victimization. In fact, the reason of Pauline’s vulnerability to the racially prejudiced notions of beauty lies in her relationship with her own mother. The relationship between Pecola Breedlove, the protagonist, and her mother, Pauline Breedlove, is ironically characterized by lack of love, and emotional attachment, indifference, frustration and cruelty. Set in a small town in Ohio, during the Depression, The Bluest Eye is the story of eleven year old Pecola Breedlove, who, victimized by the racist society, yearns for blue eyes, which, she believes, will make her worthy of love, happiness and acceptance in the
Fantine’s fellow citizens criticize her for her behavior and depravity, but they also take every opportunity to make her circumstances even more desperate. Hugo’s portrayal of Fantine’s mistreatment distinguishes the honest, hardworking poor from the parasitic opportunism of the working-class Thénardiers. By juxtaposing Fantine with the Thénardiers, Hugo suggests that poverty does not necessarily equal indecency. In doing so, he condemns a system that allows the indecent poor to survive even as it crushes the honest and
Moreover, harassment and racism are very similar to each other, both of them leave their victims with very negative affections, also both of them are contributing to social unrest. However, the only difference between them is that their causes might vary in some situations. Society must get rid of these evil habits in order to get advanced into a better
