What makes Smith an unsympathetic character? What makes Smith a sympathetic character is that he had a very hard life growing up, and he can not really see right from wrong some of the time. The relationships he had with his family explains why he acts the way he does some of the time. In addition to everything else in his life, the deaths of his other siblings make it hard for him.
John had a problem with fighting and petty thievery; he wasn’t what you would call a nice kid. He bullied the kids that were different and smaller in size. Soon later he found school just wasn’t for him and dropped out. He began to work at a machine shop, and worked hard at it. His problem though he liked to party and stay out all night.
Like Nathan, many kids had fathers who were absent or fleeting. When these fathers did stick around, they were not always the best influences around their sons because they did not know how to be fathers to kids they could have easily had with another women around. With Gaz and Nathan’s relationships, it is almost like the son becomes the father and the father the son as Nathan keeps reminding his dad that stealing is bad, breaking in and entering is wrong, and that causing Gerald to loose his job was rude. Nathan makes his dad give Gerald back the gnome he smashed just like a father would do if his son had damaged one of his friend’s toys. Even as Gaz is walking up and down the streets, he and Dave rate the women they see on a scale of one to ten, and Nathan explains how that’s perverted and gross to do.
Depending on where his parents settled in the United States, their inability to find work could have been due to their level of education, prospects due to geography, or perhaps, something more insidious, such as racism or xenophobia. In any event, as a result of their failure to succeed in their adopted country, Dad turns to alcohol and eventually leaves the home. Mom, like many single mothers, must work multiple jobs to pay the bills and must rely on neighbors to care for her child, or leave the child to fend for himself. During the most critical developmental years (through age 7), Shobbit develops feelings of abandonment, since he is essentially raising himself.
My father was a “hothead” when he was forming to an adult. He got women pregnant, he was stealing, and he want to jail. Troy have similar experiences. I think that could have an effect to why they act they way they act mentally and physically. The fact that they didn’t have support, cause the to raise themselves and learn thing the hard way; and that could be the reason they treat their children the way they because of the experiences that they been through.
An example of this out of his life is he was always alone or the silent kid in the back growing up in poverty with a brother that was a bad example in the court system and a mom that was always busy. Grew out of his childhood and is attending college to go to school for a criminal justice degree, so his lifestyle is different from his brothers and his mother’s. So yes, anyone can obtain success, but most of the time, the ones that are remembered are born from poverty or a shamed moment. And turn it into some form of art to let the world know their feelings.
Stereotyping is a frequent problem in our society. So, seeing prominent stereotyping throughout Bennett’s essay was not anything I was surprised by, although that does not make it acceptable. Throughout my life, I’ve experienced not only someone stereotyping my former drug addict brother, but stereotyping the type of person I am and the type of people my family are. My older brother went through a long and awful trial with drugs, and upon telling anyone, they automatically assumed that he was some low-life, grungy criminal. However, he wasn’t, and upon meeting him no one would ever know he was heavily addicted to drugs.
Our society is also often socially pressured into abusing drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, my oldest brother got pressured into abusing drugs for many years. While in school, he became friends with the wrong group of people and got influenced into doing this. He was someone I always looked up to when I was younger, and never in a million years did I think he would get into using drugs. It has been a constant, difficult, and exhausting battle for him.
These bullies who torment the disabled children are not being informed that maybe at home the child´s family did not eat because they had to pay for another doctor´s visit. Family´s that have a disabled member are always struggling with these problems. Families struggle with social issues, financial issues, and much more. If people are informed of this world wide problem these problems may be limited.
Unfortunately, I was not surprised that Johnnetta and her sister Sonya fell into prostitution as well as substance abuse because living on the streets was to be expected due to their upbringing. In Michael’s case, it was heart wrenching to see him falsely confess to abusing his sister solely because he was overwhelmed by the fear of his father. Although he had been separated from his parents for some time, it was upsetting to imagine the kind of differing emotions, both angry and devastated, Michael experienced after finding out of his father’s murder and suicide. Although the stories of their childhood gave me similar feelings to what I have when I hear of any abuse, it was a breath of fresh air to hear of the successes of two victims. I was taken aback
His environment was a negative impact in his life growing up. As the nature and nurture perspective, Kuklisnky inherited anti-social personality disorted from his abusive parents. His father violence reinforced violence and the lack of conscience and love. He also was diagnosed with paranoid personality disorder, but he never seeks for treatments. Kuklinski was the byproduct of his
Wes realized that his job wasn’t a real ‘job’, it was a source to feed addictions like Cheryl’s. In an attempt to revise his life, he entered the Job Corps program, sadly, it didn’t last very long. He wasn’t making much money from the low paid jobs that he was offered through the program, he needed to take care of his children with both financial and parental support, with all of these situations happening one after the other, he was feeling very overwhelmed. Although Wes knew he didn’t want to stray back to his old habits, it took the best of him, the one thing that Wes took away from his childhood was the easiest way to make money, and that consisted of one thing; the drug business, the chapter ends with him preparing a bag of cocaine with tears welling in his eyes, with disappointment for

In the essay “Fighting Back,” author Stanton L. Wormley Jr. explains that developing the instinct to fight back diminishes the ability to forgive. He supports this explanation by first establishing credibility with his personal experiences, then captivates the audience by presenting a powerful question, “Was I less of a man for not having beaten my attacker to a bloody pulp?” (Wormley 1). Wormley’s purpose is to illustrate the unnecessity of violence in order to also make a political statement to our country’s government. He builds a formal tone for an audience of minorities and majorities.
In the United States, during the eighteen-hundreds’, a small group of people believed that slavery was immoral and did many things to abolish it. John Brown, a Caucasian male who was part of this group of people, did two things that many people in United States history didn’t have the passion to do. John Brown’s life was very interesting: His early life and transition to adulthood, his decision to fight for the cause, his actions of violence in Kansas and Harper’s Ferry, along with, the long-lasting effects of these actions led to his hanging. These events were pivotal to the beginning of the Civil War. “John Brown was born in Torrington, Connecticut, on May 9, 1800, five months after the death of George Washington”(Marrin,7).
