In the beginning of the story he says, "If we don't look out the white race will be-will be utterly submerged…”. Though he took this view from a book, the fact that he would openly agree with it shows that he is arrogant enough to even consider himself above these other races, (though the general consensus of that time period followed the same line of thought). To conclude, Tom Buchanan was an arrogant, greedy, hypocritical man. He lived under the false assumption that he was better than most. This is why he was able to spout his hypocrisy on others.
This hero is meant to have the reader find a “sense of self” (613) within the character, rather than being downtrodden by the perfect hero characters of stories before. Byronic Heroes are “imitated in life as well as in art” (613). Homer Simpson is a Byronic Hero in many ways. Throughout the seasons we see that Homer is not a very smart man, or a very caring man. He is an extreme alcoholic and he has a violent side.
Throw in a dozen “real world issues” with bland characters and there is a best seller. Books that chose to cover deep or troubling issues are often seen as a sacred text for daring to go further than boring and clichéd themes like follow your heart or never give up. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher received a ton of praise after the Netflix adaptation of it came out. People loved how it took the time to discuss teen suicide, but many hated how the aftermath of the suicide was recklessly handled. TV shows such as the CW’s Riverdale are notorious for being overly melodramatic and pointlessly complicated simply for the sake of drama.
Bartolome de las Casas is used by Zinn for many of the sources of the cruelty against the natives, but even Zinn admits that "his figures are exaggerations"(). However, Zinn still puts Bartolome under much less criticism than Columbus even though the priest did his share in being cruel to natives; this was most likely because he wanted to make the point that Columbus should not be so heroized. Overall, the monarchy of Europe is truly to blame for sending the greediest men with orders only to extract wealth from the New World. Whether or not America should celebrate Columbus Day is a highly debatable topic, but it should not really be celebrated or called after a relatively cruel man. Columbus just happened to be in charge of the right ship with a gamble that turned out to make him extremely successful, but he did not have anything, besides good seamanship to make him any more exciting than the average
Many questions and unknown reasons go towards MMIW but the stereotype that Indigenous men are a part of all homicides involving MMIW is false. Murdering someone is one of the most inhumane things that anyone in society could do, let alone an Indigenous person, who values life so much. However, because there are lots of unanswered questions regarding MMAW, the easiest thing for the government to do about the problem is to incarcerate Indigenous men. About 22.6 percent of male prisoners in the jail system are Indigenous men . For the government and the good of society, incarcerating people that seem like a problem, makes it look like the government is making society safer and fixing the problem, when in reality, the government is just locking people up because of stereotypes that are made by groups of people in
This is just a myth because everything we know about has been romanticized, because the idea is much more complicated and we as a society like to group everything and make thing exciting, because if they were dull it wouldn’t be packed with action. The reality of it all is a hard pill to swallow rather than having a sugar coated pill. Throughout the Wild West the cowboy had been an idol for American culture while on the other hand, the American Indian has been portrayed as the barbaric individual who has no heart for anyone. The Wild West is simply just a myth and is a legacy that will forever live on even though we really know how the Wild West really is, but we deny the dull part of the story and accept the side that is action
This can often lead to them not handling tragedy well, because they feel as though their morals have failed them. Wilson truly loved Myrtle, so after her death Wilson goes on a rampage.

Who, truly, was F. Scott Fitzgerald? Although some scholars persist that he was a sinful, evil drunkard who did not deserve his fame and others argue that he was a great American writer, but what anyone can see is that his life is talked about time and time again. One person discussing Fitzgerald is Scott Donaldson, who, in his writing of “A Few Words about F. Scott Fitzgerald”, used the methods of real life situations and evidence, Fitzgerald’s works and intelligent language to effectively convince his audience that Fitzgerald was a tragic American hero. Firstly, Donaldson builds up his argument by giving background on Fitzgerald’s tragic life and encounters. Telling an anecdote of when a former college sweetheart rejected F. Scott, Donaldson
A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description. The last key factor that I did not really enjoy was that, since this book is half fictional information, then parts of this book is unbelievable. This will lead us into being confused on which parts were true and which parts weren’t. These are the dislikes that I have in the
Even just seeing more of the World Fair’s grandeur in the background of scenes would help increase the sense of world-building for this movie. HOLMES LOSES EDGE Holmes is a fantastically crafted villain up until right after he kills Pickett in his giant furnace. In the third act of the script, Holmes doesn’t seem as devilish or interesting after he falls in love with Emeline. His character shifts from feeling like a cold serial-killer to being a crazy boyfriend, which does not mesh well with the actions and desires of his character as set up in the first act. His shift in character would make more sense if his romantic relationship with Emeline were introduced sooner in the story and developed more throughout.
