However, there are civil rights issues going on today and one of them is racial profiling. Racial profiling has affected many African American individuals as they are still untrusted by many white people. The play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry, tells a story about a black family who lives in the 1950s and the struggles that they went through due to their skin color. This story shows the contrast of how much progress society has made but points out the problems it faces today. The United States has made large steps in their progress of becoming a more equal society, by having an African American president and interracial couples being accepted; however, it still faces challenges that many individuals are fighting to

One example of this laid-back attitude towards spending money is when Francis goes home after 22 years and gets $10 from Billy. Francis then jokes with his wife, Annie, about putting “…ten dollars toward the frame” (183) for a picture they like. This minor and seemingly harmless remark digs deeper into the person Francis is. Rather than spending money on food or shelter, he would rather spend it on a useless trinket that does not improve his life. Considering the economic climate at the time coupled with his situation, this joke turns into an ignorant statement which explains why he has “…been broke twenty-two years” (182).

In doing so, Bob always questions the way he approaches the situation.
Like many Americans, Willy works his whole life trying to be a salesman to be able to provide for his family. Willy unwillingness to change, and over-relying on his charisma to lead him to become prosperous is the one of the primary cause of his downfall. The ideals of success that Willy pushes onto his sons seem preposterous. In Willy’s mind, neither of his two sons were able to live up to the expectation he had for them. From my point of view, I believe he wanted live through his sons and actually, have them fulfill his belief of success.
What a Good Brother In the “Scarlet Ibis”, many different qualities are displayed that characterize Brother in many ways. He is given a brother that is exponentially different from others, a brother that was unable to walk by himself. Brother cared for him and did not want him to have to arrive at school unable to walk. As a big brother, he took it into his own hands to try to fix this problem, and pushed Doodle until he was able to walk on his own. There are many qualities that a upstanding brother should have to help a growing sibling thrive and be confident.
