Black people took this comedian 's words to heart. Not only were they crushed inside, but they felt discriminated and alone. This is just one reason why comedians should not speak up about racial point of views.

In both of these texts it shows that Since tom robinson was black he would never win the trial even tho he did nothing
However, he believes Tom Robinson and Atticus work hard to defend him. Therefore, some people pissed to Atticus. The people, who live in Maycomb, say such ugly things about Atticus Finch, a white man, for defending Tom Robinson in court, because Atticus believe Tom and he tried to defend Tom seriously. Long time ago, many people believed that black men is not good, polite, and NOT believable, so they were treated like slaves.

Many Americans have come to the conclusion that the black people movement ended when they obtained voting rights, but no matter what rights are given to people of different races they will 6 times out of 10 feel attacked or racially profiled at least once a day. In addition, it is not like the author is pulling these experiences out of thin air these are his experiences he is speaking of his own feelings. This adds so much more credibility to his message by showing readers a different point of view in situations usually told by the other side. Usually in any acts of “misconduct” between white and black people the side of the white person is mostly focused on and unless there is clear evidence contradicting the crime the black man is accused of there is a strong probability that the black man will go to jail

In the poem, it states in the text on lines 7 and 15, “...who tells me in Spanish you are my diamond… doesn’t live here anymore” This shows that even though the grandfather isn’t there anymore, he enjoyed his
[Francis said he reckoned I got told, for me to just sit there and leave him alone.

Have you ever been so ashamed of who you are associated with, that you push them past their own physical limits for your own good? In the short story, The Scarlet Ibis, by James Hurst makes you think about what is truly from the goodness of the brother character’s heart or if he is just being selfish. Ever since Doodle was born, he had no hope from anyone. Brother was the first one to look past his disabilities and see that he had the potential to be normal. Although Brother has to care for Doodle and teach him how to walk, run, swim, and row, it was only because he was sick of giving all of his personal time to the little disabled boy who could not walk.
Pap was unlike this man he was mad at, Pap could neither read nor speak multiple languages. Swiftly after this speech on voting as a privilege, Twain made Pap trip and fall, be injured, then have hallucinations, and then attempt to stab his son, Huck. Through this Twain was trying to satirize white men, in general, who were upset that other people could do what they did. Journal #2 During chapters 4, 6, 7, and 8, Twain is trying to show how Huck is a problem solver, someone to tells the truth, and a smart young boy. Twain does

Richard yearns to read, write and explore the scholarly world, which is frowned upon because in the South, black people must play the part of the modest, ignorant, African American who say yes, sir and no, sir. An example of this conformity is, “‘Ain’t you learned sense’n that yet?’ asked the man who hit me. ‘Ain’t you learn to say sir to a white man yet?” (181) Richard was violently confronted by a white man after he had offered to give Richard a ride, and he turned it down. This proves that if Richard says or does the wrong thing, he will provoke hostility.

But when he was pulled over by Denver police officers in 2009, he lost his belief in a colorblind world when he was nearly beaten to death.” ("I Was Almost Another Dead Black Male": Denver Teen Recalls Police Beating After 2009 Traffic Stop”) America is having a lot of trouble with today’s government.
