“In the meantime they’ll just have to move a little farther north from Mango Street, a little farther away every time people like us keep moving in (Cisneros 13).” This quote is a significant part of the story because it shows how Esperanza truly feels about herself and her family. She thinks that because she is poor and lives and a bad neighborhood people move away from her family. Esperanza doesn’t think very much of her or her family at all. She thinks that it is because of their race that people do not want to be near them. The wealthy people tend to be unwilling to live in poor neighborhoods.
If they wanted to go somewhere it was rough because there were no roads. Living conditions were generally dirty and therefor sickness was a normal thing. The woman did not have many rights as well. They did not have the right to vote, the right to hold a job in a public office, or serve on juries. However, they could make a will, buy or sell property, and they could
Mayella had no say in the trial, which caused her to have no power. The Ewell’s had little to no money at all, and struggled with class. The family lived behind a dump. In the trial with Tom Robinson, Mayella was scared to tell the truth because of the looks her dad was giving her when it was her turn to speak. Mayella was almost forced to say Tom Robinson raped her or her dad would have beaten her.
21”). Tom Robinson is saying this quote because, he is trying to defend himself on the stand. Tom knows that he did not rape Mayella so he is trying to get his point across the jury and judge that he is innocent of the rape of Mayella Ewell..Tom should not have felt bad for a white woman because she has to chores. Mayella should have told Tom that that was part of her daily life. “ The evil assumption- that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all negro men are not to be trusted around women”.
Mayella's strongest power is her race, she has power in court over Tom because she is white and Tom is African American. In other words Mayella had little power in her class. People didn’t respect her because of her class, and you can tell Mayella is not used to being respected because in court Atticus calls Mayella “ma’am and miss” (DBQ Mayella, 15) and Mayella gets mad
So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
environmental racism is something that is bad for the community. To begin with, the environment that people live in are different from other environments. The reason why because they are polluted with chemicals and other things. For Example, ''Separate residential limits or districts for white and Negro residents. This shows that U.S minorities have been placed in a separate area for a long time, as noted in the article.
1. Describing her house it shows Esperanza is poor, because it 's a small old house. she probably has a bad appearence since the house looks ugly from the outside. Not a lot of knowledge or expirence because the house is small with little space. Fradial, according to the front bad door that is hard to close from the water that affected it.
Because of this, Bob Ewell does not have a good relationship with the society around him. Atticus continues, “The Ewells were members of an exclusive society made of Ewells” (Lee 30). Even though the Ewells live in the same town as everyone else, they are still set apart, with Atticus even referring to their family as part of an “exclusive society” that is separate from those around them. Setting a bad example leads to a loss of trust which alienates someone from society. Townspeople such as Atticus do not even see people such as Bob Ewell as functional members of
Whether this is a false representation of what Proctor or not, it does not match the rest of the production. Abigail is shown being thrown to the ground by Proctor, while also threatening her by saying he will ruin her life if Elizabeth isn’t freed. He will have nothing to do with Abigail because she is already ruining his life by accusing his wife. This scene is a false representation of both characters, another reason it should be cut out of the movie. The modified appendix does not work because it gives a different view of how Abigail comes onto John.
Puritan communities where well ordered communities. Men where the leaders of households and of the communities. Women where of lesser value, though they took great care of children and the homes. There was a strong distrust of women who where not puritan, and who had no children or spouse. This led to the result of the Salem Witch trials.
Howard sexually assaulted, his ex-coworker out of his own control and sane mindset. Since Howard knew it was criminally wrong, would not pass the statement of “appreciate the wrongfulness”. Within the boundaries of the ALI test, Howard does not meet the legal terms for insanity because he failed to cognitive and volitional prongs.
I have read many books on all black towns and how the government funding for these public school are little to none and the living conditions are horrible. These people are still being segregated but in a different way. They are being pushed into ghettos and areas of the United states that has little or not social or economic growth leaving them working hard at “retail’ or “labor” jobs. They are barely making ends meet and do not have time to find ways to lift themselves from these conditions and it creates a cycle for these lower class black individuals to be stuck in for
There is little for the townsfolk to do, no movie theater, nor is there money to see a movie anyway. Maycomb suffered greatly from the Great Depression. Blacks and whites were still separated. It was a poor town. Most of them were trying to “ride out the bad times while looking forward to better days ahead.” Some might have given up.
