The main character is busy barricading the house to make it safer, Mr. Cooper is in the basement waiting for Ben to do all the work and take all the risks, much like slave owners did many years ago. Correspondingly, throughout the movie Ben is betrayed and held back by the white people around him, just as the African Americans have been for many years. The ending of this film is very graphic and symbolic, as it shows the African American character being murdered and treated like something other than human, he is shot, but there are no repercussions for the shooter, instead he is praised by the sheriff. After Ben is shot the hunting party is shown sinking their meat hooks into him to bring Ben’s body to the fire to be burned. While meat hooks are used by butchers to move meat, they are also used to hang meat, which is symbolic because of all the African Americans that have been hung by radical assemblies.
When Hadley assaults the newcomer on the first day and kills him and when he also kills Tommy makes the viewers wonder who should be behind the bars and who should be out. Also when Hadley had Andy’s life in his hand, when he held over the edge of the roof or when he paralysed the leader of the ‘Sisters’ gang. A question comes into one’s mind, why does a facility made to change the habits of criminals allow their guards and their Warden to exhibit those very habits they try to change? For a man who presents himself as a follower of God, Warden Norton shows us little to none of the qualities a man of God should have. Also how Brooks didn’t want to be released from prison and how while he was free he thought of breaking his parole to go back into prison.
Pelzer used imagery when he had to play one of his Mother barbaric games as punishment such as drinking ammonia, gas chambers made from cleaning chemicals, and gruesome arm burning. Repetition was used by Pelzer, when he decided to never let his mother to fully annihilate him; giving him hope that he will rise and escape his iron cage and chains. This memoir was a perfect way for people to see the hell a domestic abused child lived, and that there should be a stop to the 702,000 children being maltreated every
In Stephen King 's "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," a man known as Red tells the story of Andy Dufresne. The authorities arrested Andy for a crime he did not commit and as a result, he ended up in the Shawshank penitentiary with Red. Red described how prison life could take away all hope of surviving on the outside, but for some reason, it did not take Andy 's hope. Red pondered at the fact that Andy was full of hope for many years. His pondering would cease when Andy broke out of jail in a hole he had dug through the wall.
My second example is, “’What’s rape?’ I asked him that night … and said rape was carnal knowledge of a female by force and without consent” (180). This is evidence he does not coddle his children unlike most parents from this time period, he just bites the bullet. He does not sugarcoat the truth, and this is good because it helps Scour get ready for life back then, and the risks. Lastly, “’In our courts, when it’s a white man’s word against a black man’s, the white man always wins. They’re ugly, but those are the facts of life’” (295).
In the beginning of “Walimai” it talks about how you can not speak without a reason and that they demand respect. “I cannot understand the ease with which the white ones call each others names, with no fear... not always listen to my counsel.” This quote is an example of social injustice. “The School Teacher 's Guest” has many examples of social, political, and religious injustice such as: “Meanwhile, the murderer, realizing that his life would be worth very little if he remained there, had, fled, meaning never to return.” The man who killed Ines 's son went free, when he should have been put in prison. This is an example of social injustice. In “Phantom Palace” an example of political injustice is: “ He offered him the option of withdrawing without a scandal, to protect the dignity of the country he represented... movement of the oil tankers.” El Benefactor gave Ambassador Lieberman three days to flee the country, because he was catching up with El Benefactors crime.

As a matter of fact, Tom Robinson helped Mayella all that he could.

When Tom was testifying to the jury, he admitted that he felt sorry for Mayella. The jury were furious that he could feel sorry for a White woman. By doing so he was putting himself above her.
This has to be one of the worst horror movie I have ever seen in my life. This is not an exaggeration, I found it more humorous than scary. Wish Upon is about a teenager girl name Clare Shannon, who isn 't too thrilled with her life. Her father is a dumpster diver, who goes around town from dumpster to dumpster finding anything he thinks that shouldn 't have been thrown away. He keeps all the stuff that he finds from the dumpster stored in their house.
