Not knowing what to do they called police because they’re not used to this behavior, the beginning of the quote where it says “paradise didn’t last long “ shows they’re new to the neighborhood wasn’t expecting something like this to happen. To see that Dan, the brother came back as the narrator describes solemn and scared shows how unusual this is. They weren’t these type of kids, the narrator uses these words to exaggerate how seriously and scared dan looked. This is where the journey began since the cops basically didn’t care they came to a realization that sometimes they might be on their own and if it happens once there’s a chance of it happening
The next difference between these two characters is one had success and one failed. Jeffery, unfortunately, did not get Dorcus sold to his owner. She, along with some others, was sold to another person, which was not what he wanted. Harris, who wanted to escape slavery, had success in getting freedom. He may have been put in prison, but he was smarter than the people thought.
He was faced with making decisions that did not favor him, regardless of which one he made. He could have led the prisoner to complete safety and risked legal action himself or taken the prisoner to jail and have that weigh on his conscience. But, evidently, neither of those decisions would end up having a positive ending, as he faced the wrath of the prisoner’s unruly acquaintances, even though he never wanted anything to do with the situation from the beginning. Many times in life, people will have to make decisions or undertake actions they do not necessarily want to do. And the decisions a person has to make will not always favor him or her or the rest of society.
Harrison is similar to most teenagers who, at one point during their teenage years, has had a period of defiance. Whether it’s because they didn’t listen to a parent or teacher, or they were mean to another kid because they wanted things to be done their way, these situations allow for readers to relate to Harrison’s defiance and desire to be different. Although most teenagers don’t get thrown into jail for “suspicion of plotting to overthrow the government”, they have had some point in their life where they wanted to do against what they were told (Vonnegut). Many teenagers become rebellious because, like Harrison, they think that the choices that they make are better than the ones made by adults. For this reason, we can immediately relate to him as we think about our life during our teenage
One of the hardest things to fathom is what drove Adnan to strangle Hae. Police officials kept coming back to the fact that Adnan was the ex-boyfriend, but this doesn’t hold much value when Syed claims the break-up was mutual and they continued to be friends despite breaking up (Koenig Episode 2). Mutual breakups typically don’t end up in rage against one another, which is why the theory of Adnan being guilty is so hard to believe. If he had no bad feelings toward her then there would be no motive for him to kill her in the first place. In addition to the motive issue behind Adnan’s conviction, Adnan repeatedly claims that he did not
From society being scared of it, how it was uncharted because of that, and also how someone like Equality 7-2521 thrived and became a different and stronger person from being alone in nature. The type of society that he (Equality 7-2521) lives in is very strict. He couldn’t be who he wanted to be or do what he wanted to do, because if he did then he would get punished for it. I’m sure that when he got exiled from society he was probably scared, but at the same time was relieved or curious to what else was out there. He couldn’t do much in society.
In a way Dre falls in line with differential opportunity because he joined the gang to do something and progress in life in a way, but at the same time, he didn’t join it to make money, earn wealth, or work towards the American Dream. Dre recognizes his skills and talents and isn’t happy with selling drugs and causing more harm to his community. He specifically asked for help, opportunities, and something to do that is positive. Dre’s story showed me that he isn’t happy living his life the way he is and that he wants to change, but doesn’t have the resources or opportunities. By having more and easier access to job training or internship programs in the inner city, Dre would be able to put his talent and skills to use towards something positive and healthy.
Michael was unable to acquire the basic strength of competence because he was scolded by his father and not allowed to have a normal childhood. Assuming that Michael’s father had always been physically abusive to his children, the level of abuse probably increased around the latency stage for Michael when he would have first became a member of the Jackson 5 at six years old. The latency stage is critical for social relationships and interactions because this is the time when school begins and a child can be around peers of his/her own age. This is usually when self-esteem or self-confidence is developed through peer interaction, so failing this stage can result in a child having a difficult time making friends and building lasting relationships. For Michael, the punishment and ridicule that he received resulted in him feeling inferior and inadequate in his ability as a performer in his father’s
It could be safer to be a conformist because you wouldn’t get in trouble as often as someone who is a nonconformist. Conforming could help you be a better person. The dangers of conforming is that you could fit it with everyone else that you would lose your individuality and be someone you are not. Leopard Man is an example of a nonconformist because he doesn 't care what anyone thinks of him and he does whatever he feels like and even though society thinks he is a freak, he’s just being himself. Today many teens want to fit in and not stick out from everyone else.
He was the kind of boy who did not understand the concept of how to treat people, and being so young I did not fully understand the way he was treating me. My parents were not his biggest fans because I often came home upset because of the things he said to me, and the way he treated me. He was manipulating and often told me that I could not do certain things, like telling me I am not smart, and that I am not as fun or pretty as one of my best friends. From this it made hanging out with my girl friends harder because he made it seem like I should be threatened by them. He made me doubt my self worth which in turn made everything else in my life a lot harder, including school.
In the book Uncle Tom’s Children ethics of Jim Crow telling how wright’s the owner had experience growing up as child back in the day was not easy but from start first thing, the encounter racism thing that had happen and he attempt to war games with Children it did not look good at because it turn out looking very ugly.

When the children began to recognise they were different, many had a strong desire to find out where they came from and where they belong. Many Stolen Generations felt they were trapped between two different cultures. The journey to find their identify their culture was not easy for most of the Stolen Generations, when they tried lived as white people they were not accepted and when they tried to live as black people they were also not accepted, they were stuck in the middle. To this day some Stolen Generation are so scarred by their past they choose to live by the culture that was brainwashed into them as children, because that is all they understand, that they are a white person. As a young child and teenager I found it difficult to understand my Maori culture and I was often discriminated against due to the colour of my skin.
