Genuinely, what is loyalty? One can’t even begin to interpret such a word. It’s one single seven letter word yet, it has a broad profound definition. As a matter of fact, typically one does not use loyalty until they are put to the test. Without a doubt, the test can be anything.
Although, Gail is nothing like Wesley and Frank she does not cause harm to the Indian people and she is a woman. Obviously Wesley would not understand but Gail is a woman and although she probably has never gone through that she would want somebody to do the same as she did Marie, for her.

The only reason that she stayed with him is because she thought she could fix him, she thought that their love could help him get over what happened to him in the war. She was wrong, losing his other “family” made him unable to attach to his actual family. It took a long harsh move to the Congo for Orleanna to see this, but it was something that needed to happen. Otherwise she would’ve never grown the strength to finally be who she
The only thing Zits new was that these two figures were famous to Native Americans because they had helped them against “evil Indian tribal government dudes.”(47) Consequently, Zits’ heroic perspective of them Is shattered when he sees them kill a person while helping the FBI. Zits seemed to have high expectations for these two men, sadly he realizes “they aren't freedom fighters or anything like that. They don't care about protecting the poor and defenseless.” (50) Zits’ is disappointed that the story he thought to be true has a bloodier prequel. This hurts his ideal Native American desire because it complicates his understanding of Native Americans. Zits’ sense of justice also played a significant part of his ideal identity, his understanding becomes even more disarrayed when he sees his Native American father take revenge in the second flight.

Antigone knew that she would be put to death if she buried Polyneices but she would rather die doing the right thing, rather than living and being surrounded with evil. Likewise, Rosa Parks believed that God was not pleased with racism and segregation. Rosa Parks thanks God that she was able to hold her ground and said, “I was fortunate God provided me with the strength I needed at the precise time conditions were ripe for change. I am thankful for Him every day that he gave me the strength not to move”(Hare 1). Rosa Parks was quiet and respectful to others, and she expected the same kind of respect in return.
Pilate grew up without much parental support, but the fact that this lack of meaningful relationships did not cause her “real misery” emphasizes just how much she cares about her daughters.The immeasurable love Pilate has for her daughter greatly contrasts the nearly invisible feelings Milkman has for his own close family, yet it would lead one to believe that she would at least gain something over Milkman for her selflessness. Indeed, this selflessness is brought up once again at the climax of the book as Pilate lays dying in Milkman’s arms, telling him to, “watch Reba for [her]”, then adding on, “I wish I’d a knowed more people. I would of loved ‘em all,” as if it was an afterthought (Morrison 336). Even as she lay dying, Pilate’s thoughts are elsewhere, concerning the welfare of her only remaining daughter, instead of acknowledging her own physical state. A majority of society would agree that these numerous acts of selflessness would justify a reward or salvation; yet in this case, Pilate simply
In the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee many people in the town of Maycomb are treated very differently due to their skin color, or rumors they heard from people. Arthur “Boo” Radley was treated differently because he was never seen. When truly Boo isn't any of what they think but because people look at the outside of a person they judge them and treat people different because they aren't like them. The author reveals that it is important to recognize that all humans deserve respect regardless of their status in society. One of the main examples of this theme in “To Kill a Mockingbird” is when the community of Maycomb is being racist towards their African American community.

Where’s the anger?”. Historical representations aside, the lack of appropriate emotion and the lack of humanity in the characters renders them two-dimensional. In Jonathan Hunt’s review of the novel for Heavy Medal, he states that since the story is written from the perspective of the first protagonist, Little Hawk, it “engenders empathy for the disappearing indigenous people and their culture. Even when the story shifts to the second protagonist, this is always in the back of our minds.” This is precisely what Debbie Reese opposes and contends with – the very fact that it falls to the back of our minds, or there is nothing but empathy for the decline in indigenous peoples and their
