The fight lead him to being bloodied and beaten up. Both kinds of violence had an effect on Holden though in different ways. The first example had a more long term effect on Holden, the story of the boy drove home Holden's idea about how hard it is to be truly yourself when you are always being pressured into conforming or becoming a phony, and the boy becomes a symbol of the struggle to Holden and perhaps fuel for his hatred of phonies and maturation. The other kind effected Holden in the short term but still caused him to make rash actions shortly after the fight. Though most of the damage done to Holden was external pain and didn't have a totally lasting effect on his
She is an insider looking out. Newland has an inner struggle throughout the film to maintain his posterior, yet he can’t help but give in to his desires sometimes. He makes a lot of morally questionable choices that at times, would benefit no one - including himself. He too, becomes slave to the toxicity of society, and ends up losing his love and living an empty lie. He was a man who loved one woman and married another, because it was “the right thing to do”.
He has seen many heinous things that Erik has done, like punching Tino and mocking Mike Costello, so he seems to be waiting for the right time to strike. Erik's mockery of Paul also showed him into the person he is today, even if it's good or bad. Paul can now take criticism and pushing nonchalantly and is used to rough
I laughed at his misery and frustration, too. However, that does not make it okay. Jack is a human being, too. He has feelings, ideas, fears, and dreams just like me and you. Jack can come off as crotchety and moronic but in reality he has a sharp wit and an even sharper tongue.
Because he was looking for a God too high up and too far away.” (128) This phrase shows how Drummond had once admired Brady, but grows to pity him as Brady never grew from his original habits. Furthermore, he defends Brady from Hornbeck's insults in saying. “I tell you Brady had the same rights as Cates: the right to be wrong!” (127) This demonstrates his respect for Brady and his acceptance for Brady as another human being. Another example is that Brady may seem like the more successful and popular of the two, but the crowd only loves him because he has the most popular opinion. This is shown by how quickly the crowd turns on him once Drummond starts to make fun of him.
They changed the education possibilities for black students later on. Before the Supreme Court's decision of 1957, many states across the country had mandatory segregation laws. These laws required for both african american students and white people to go to separate schools. There was so much resistance about black and whites going to different schools that there was a second decision known as brown II, telling schools to integrate students no matter their race or ethnicity. Little Rock Central High School was obligated to integrate nine black students in response to the Brown II law.
Before the Little Rock Nine event everything was segregated by race. Bathrooms, restaurants, stores, hotels, schools, jobs, and even water fountains were all segregated by race. If an African American entered a white store or restaurant they would be kicked out and even beat up. Seating on busses were segregated by race, whites sat in the front and blacks had to sit in the back, if a white needed a seat one black passenger had to give up their seat. One civil rights activist took action and has stopped most segregation but the segregation between schools did not stop.
It takes Phil’s female producer Rita, to help him realize the importance of others. He thought it would be a great plan to pretend to be Rita’s ideal perfect man so that he can seduce her.

Rita grew closer to him because of who he was and not who he pretends to be.
The tragedy of the two young lovers was caused by the lovers themselves. They decided to judge on looks and not get to know each other. In act two prologue, the chorus states “Alike bewitchèd by the charm of looks.” Which proves that they only loved each other because of their looks. Another reason they are to blame for their own tragedy is because they acted on emotion not reason. For example in act 5 scene 1 it states “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight.Let’s see for means.
Antigone’s efforts to execute her will on Creon and his men resulted in her being viewed as weak. Creon asks Haimon, “Is a woman stronger than we?”(Sophocles 218). His question clearly implies the sexist and patriarchal values and beliefs ingrained in him just like plenty of men at that time, which is that women are subservient to men and that’s the way it should be. Creon goes on to call Haimon an “adolescent fool!”(Sophocles 221), all because he defended Antigone’s actions. Ironically, Haimon admits to finding Creon’s wisdom more valuable than his marriage; even the nicest of men have their biased perceptions of superiority.
The 1950s were a very difficult time for the average African-American going so far that, they had segregation to the most basic things like toilets, drinking fountains, buses and schools. Despite the “Brown versus board” chapter history in 1954 which condemned segregation in schools on constitutional, only a very few handful of black African-Americans actually went to a school they had white people in it in the south of America. African-Americans still like this and this was shown even before 1 December 1955 when wasn’t Parks who have already made history was arrested. This was shown by groups like ^^^^^. Their struggle and for many of us, it is acturely our struggle became a lot easier on 1 December 1955 when Rosa was Parks was arrested, simply refusing to give up her seat but could someone else want to sit down and believed he was entitled to her seat simply because he was white and she was black.
This film itself has been critiqued consecutively claiming to be about “feministic freedom”. This in fact is true as we see two best friends finally out of being under control by men, having fun and the time of their lives, while the men are disturbed
“There’s nothing remarkable in their making a man foolish, in women winning men To sin, for Adam our father was deceived just so, and Solomon, and also Samson, Delilah was his death and later David Endured misery for Batheba’s beauty. Women ruined them: how wonderful if men could love them well, but never believe them!” (130). Ever since Adam & Eve days, females have been seen as femme fatale. As “An alluring and seductive woman, especially one who leads men into compromising and dangerous situations.”- (dictionary). Sir Gawain expresses his thoughts and advices his audience that it is ok to love woman but never believe their stories nor fall for for their seduction otherwise a permanent scar will be carried upon sinners.
There is one particular example that I can think of in my personal life that goes along with this theme of ‘white privilege.’ I attended Northeast Guilford High School, which is a primarily African American high school. Therefore, I was the minority. Right before I transitioned from middle school to high school, the district lines in my county were ‘redrawn’ and many of the black students who used to attend Eastern Guilford that lived in the lower income housing were now being sent to Northeast. It was almost as if they wanted to pull as many of the African American students into one school because they didn’t want those students of color to be attending the same school as the rich, white students. I truly don’t believe it was just a coincidence that the district lines were redrawn to bring the few black students from a primarily white school to the primarily black school.
