Blackfoot is a native tribe that resides in the Great Plains of Montana and Canadian provinces of Alberta. King writes about how the mother had to face several guards and spend a few nights in the car with her son because of their treatment by Canada. In my point of view, I find the theme to be that aboriginals are treated as objects and are forced to give up their identity and lifestyle. Just like in America, it seems like that Canada is pushing aboriginals are pushed to the side and cover it with some sugar. For instance, when parked at an border office, a woman tried to persuaded the mother to pick a identity by saying “I can understand how you feeling about having to tell us about your citizenship, and here’s what I’ll do.
Sal wonders if Mr.Birkway will take Mr.Cadaver away then everything will go back to normal. However, the day that Mr.Cadaver told her how her and her father met, Sal figured that Mr.Cadaver wasn’t a bad person that she wanted to get rid of anymore. Sal didn’t want to believe Margaret Cadaver, until she saw the bus along side the overlook in Coeur d’Alene. She realized that the only reason why Margaret hung out with her father was because they were close friends that connected with her mother. Sal believes that Margaret is not the crazy person that she thought of as before because she now knows that she was a big help to her family.
Unluckily, Toure could not be deported due to the lack of proof of his citizenship in Guinea and they would not take him back. On top of his complicated situation, Toure still has to deal with Canada’s border police insisting that he is a high risk detainee because of his criminality in the United States regarding his non-violent issues 12 years ago. Four years later, Toure is still stuck in jail with no way of knowing when he will gain his freedom back. Toure thought that Canada was the best place in the world which is why he chose to come here. I believe that locking
Garza’s English 1A class and is also reading Hunger of Memory, and, like Andrea, she didn’t agree with Rodriguez distancing himself away from his family. “It really bugged me how he stopped speaking Spanish and how he would talk about his family,” she said. A former student of Mr. Garza’s class and current tutor at the Reading and Writing Center, Isaiah, had similar remarks: “It seems like [Richard Rodriguez] wants to be called anything but Mexican, which I suppose is fine, but you can’t just erase your roots.” Some students didn’t mind the touchy issues or themes that were being discussed in Hunger of Memory, but took a more literary approach in their criticisms. Jamie, a student in her fourth semester at Reedley College, read part of the book just to see what the fuzz was about. “But after getting through the first few chapters, I had to put it down,” Jamie says, “I actually liked some of themes he discussed – but still, it just wasn’t my

The waitress replies, “I would not be a bit surprised he did not attack this place right here” (O’Connor 547).

In fact, Dana suggested that watching television doesn’t make you any smarter. Stevens argues that the show “24” Steven Johnson referred to had a few relatively negative impressions from the shows illustration of Muslim terrorists and how the show ratifies distress. Dana also interprets that this issue could be secluded from having any idea of gaining knowledge and, in reality, it’s just racial profiling. Though, Dana disagrees with Steven throughout the article he ends it with an interesting neutral statement saying, “the medium seems neither like a brain-liquefying poison nor a salutary tonic. Certainly, for young children, who are fresh meat for the advertising industry, the idea of a week (or an entire childhood) without TV makes a lot of sense.
