In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne uses symbolism, to show how guilt can destroy someone. Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale has caused himself pain mentally and physically. “His brain often reeled and visions seemed to flit before him." (Hawthorne 100). Dimmesdale didn’t know how to handle his guilt.
People cannot escape these two powerful emotions of love and hate because they are simply entwined together. We can love someone dearly but the next moment hatred surges from your body once they have done you wrong. As we love someone we are shadowed with the hate, once things go wrong the hatred suddenly can take over your body. Hate is an emotion that is hard to deteriorate because of the painful memories and experiences. While love is hard to obtain, it’s difficult to find people you truly love and willing to do anything for that person.
Not only is Young Goodman Brown betraying his own loved ones and beliefs but the ones he cares for are disregarding him right back. This plot is quite frankly like a train of dominos; one does bad, the same receives bad. Each example of betrayal helps move along and set up yet another example. Hawthorne gives his readers a harsh reality of betrayal in all types of relationships and the penalties that come with it. The message behind this story may be hard to discover but it needs to be widely
It hurts to know that some people see a person differently, not good enough to be classified as human, so they treat them badly to let them know that they are not good enough. Have you ever wondered what racism does to a person? How does it make them feel? What goes throw their mind when they are told all those horrible stuff to make them feel bad about themselves? Most importantly, how are they still standing strong despite all the obstacles that they face in their life because of their race?

“When it comes to injuries and insults to our honor, anger ‘takes it personally.’” We get mad and defensive when someone tries to put us down, or tries to hurt us, or tries to anger us. It can be tough not to get angry and go into a fit of rage, but we need to turn towards Him. As the late Billy Graham wrote, “Though we lift our voices and cry out for help, still we deliberately choose—as Adam did—the wrong way.” We are all created in Him image, and, “like the reflection in a cracked and fading mirror, the likeness nevertheless remains.”
The character’s past was traumatizing because of all the discrimination she had to endure, this is an exhibit of a bad force of society that has been seen in history before. Adelina’s prior experiences provoked her to find justice but while doing so she was betrayed and this was the cause for her to find revenge. Revenge is portrayed in the books as Adelina tries to be a good leader and save malfettos, this, however, affects the character by making her a soulless villain.

She takes two issues and forms them into one powerful statement that provoked thought and truth. Her use of the words horrible and blood drunken evoke a kind of incarnate anger humans have towards things that are threatening to them, inducing an empathetic response on the listener’s part.

In addition, she points out the "same line of inconsistency" (Shaw) being used by anti-suffragists time and time again. This inconsistency is spoken of by Anna Howard Shaw in a very clear and factual manner, stating that the men had hardly established their new country "before they began to practice exactly the same sort of persecutions on others

The history behind that is horrible and what white people did back then is very wrong. There are people that think it 's right to make fun of different races or do it just to be racist.

During times of segregation in this country white people did not fully understand how much those who were not “of the appropriate skin tone”, or appropriate country of origin pined for a shot at the American Dream. While some people did understand completely, and had full knowledge of how the people of color felt, they continued to treat them with (people of color) with malice. In the work it is stated that if those (non-whites) wanted equity, that it is up to them. Meaning if they wanted a better future, and they wanted to be treated justly; they need(ed) to fight. This work so richly conveys the struggle that people faced during the old America.
Racism is still exiting and it is a major problem in our modern society today. The system was set up to suppress black people, make them feel less of themselves, and separation from another because they look harmful or suspicious to them. In modern society, American moral and values define freedom, but the foundation was built by slavery which sound confusing and complicated. The history of slavery had collided contemporary society today, also created a group of two societies. The majority of American might argue that they should not be held accountable of their ancestor actions, which make perfect sense, but also needs to understand the system was created against minority groups.
