Hatred is a strong emotion that can overtake anyone at any given time. This capability leads many on a path of ruin and destruction, which is greatly portrayed through Grendel in John Gardner’s Grendel. Grendel, a destructive feral being, is taught in nihilism, which gives him the ideology of being superior over all living things (except the dragon), and it is because of this superiority complex that he begins a reign of terror over Hrothgar and his kingdom because of his disdain for humanity. His disdain for humanity stems from the humans senseless violence against one another and their lack of restraint against nature One of Grendel’s many reasons for hating humans is that they wreak senseless havoc upon each other.
Complete isolation is not the only contributing factor to Grendel’s savage raids and aggressive behavior. The label and detestation that he receives from the humans themselves prove this. Ironically, the society who dubbed Grendel “evil” is the same society that tormented him to the point of consuming humans. The reason that Grendel is even debated to be evil is because of the humans that showed him hatred and brutality. At their first meeting, Grendel narrates, “Darts like hot coals went through my legs and arms and I howled more loudly still,” (Gardner 27).
Bullying, Prejudice and social injustice are all forms of racism that blinds people from seeing who a person really is (based upon their skin color). Nowadays these forms of racism are used to create an intimidating atmosphere for the people who are affected by it the most. Some of the reactions to this are suicide, murder and the thirst for vengeance. In contrast, many people fall into deep depressions and let a racist comment haunt them forever and change the pathway of their lives. The rights of the Scottsboro Boys were completely ignored and all of the whites in the court stared down each and everyone one of them with absolute hatred and intolerance.
In the beginning the book ponyboy grows up hating the Socs. The Socs have have all the power and money and ponyboy hates them for this and also hates them because they are always picking on and fighting greasers.

As page 165 says, “He was spit on and pelted with Cokes, ice, and coins”, he was very hated. Of course, with hate comes violence, and that is exactly what happened to Perry Wallace. Even though he did nothing wrong but want to play a game that he liked. Another way he was hurt was simply by names. Being called very inappropriate names that really tore him down.
Cyrano despises most people in his society for being so obsequious. He wants only to state the bold, insulting truth; this kind of openness is a reflection of his boldness and courage. A final example of Cyrano’s courage is when Cyrano describes the way he wants to die to the cadets. His reply to them, “‘Always the answer, yes! Let me die so, under some
And this is a great example of symbolism. Mr.Twain represents Mr. Sherburn and the mob is the rest of the audience who is hateful and bigoted and also that deny the African American people to receive equal rights. And through Symbolism we see that Mr.Sherburn is right about the mob and their lack of courage. He explains how all of them are pitiful and how they are all cowards. And this is true for them and the people in real life who hunt, mistreat, and even kill African American people they are all cowards, they don’t have honor.
Andrew Jackson was a bad president because he only cared about what he liked and disliked. He disliked the Natives not moving so he moved them by force and in the process killed many. He did not like what the National Bank represented so he destroyed it thereby sending the country into a depression. He liked putting his friends in power so he did even if they were out of touch with the common man. Ironically Andrew Jackson was known as a supporter of the common man but actually he was one of the most insensitive presidents in American
"The United States government did something that was wrong — deeply, profoundly, morally wrong. It was an outrage to our commitment to integrity and equality for all our citizens... clearly racist." Even before the speech was given, there was fierce public disapproval at the study. The trial was widely regarded as unethical and racist by both experts and the general public (Brookes and Paul e12). There was widespread cry that the Tuskegee study was outrageously immoral and cruel, even deceiving towards the victims.
The boys refuse to listen to him because he is an outsider and attempts to impose his parent-like nature upon them, which they dislike because they have finally escaped the power adults had over them. He is at the stem of the other’s road to savagery, and once he dies the island turns to complete chaos with no hope of turning back. Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever
Gene begins to take all of Finny’s actions as deliberate sabotages because his envy was controlling him. Gene seemed like a weak character because of his jealousy. It made him seem like he wasn’t as good as Finny or that he was lacking personality or talent. Once the realization came to Gene that Finny indeed did not feel anything but love for him, everything changed. This is when all of the mixed emotions surfaced.
Huckleberry Finn was an outcast in the town of St. Petersburg that was the son of the town drunkard. He was hated by all the mothers with a passion. They hated him because he was wild, bad, and uncivilized. Huck did not have to answer to anyone and was free to do anything he choose to do. Another reason for despising him would be because all of their children wanted to be like him.
I used to hate greasers. Especially Pony’s gang after they picked up Cherry and Marcia. Bob and I were so mad. I mean they were no-hopers, why would they think they have the right to have soc girls. They were seen as juvenile delinquents by society, people who should be feared and were reckless.
Prejudice is the basis of the story “The Glass Roses” as the protagonist's dad and the rest of the logging camp has a predetermined notion of who Leka is. They have a prejudice towards Leka, they call him a Polack which is a derogatory name, it is also believed that he is gay. The story also deceives the reader, as it leads the reader astray trying to get us to believe in the prejudice. This can be seen in the tone used and especially when they say Leka cuddled up to Stephen, but it is quite the contrary as they share beds because they are in a logging camp. Due to this, the protagonist Stephen conflicts with his father about being his friend.
