It is not only children who are racist towards him it is the adults as well. “On the first day of class, you had difficulty with his name. You wanted to call him Wind insisting that wolf somehow must be his middle name.” (Lake 77). This is showing some racism in the teacher because, any other teacher would’ve worked harder to learn his name
In paragraphs 33 to 44 of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s response to “A Call for Unity,” a declaration by eight clergymen, “Letter from Birmingham Jail” (1963), he expresses that despite his love for the church, he is disappointed with its lack of action regarding the Civil Rights Movement. Through powerful, emotionally-loaded diction, syntax, and figurative language, King adopts a disheartened tone later shifts into a determined tone in order to express and reflect on his disappointment with the church’s inaction and his goals for the future. King begins this section by bluntly stating that he is “greatly disappointed” (33) with the church, though he “will remain true to it as long as the cord of life shall lengthen” (33). By appealing to ethos and informing the audience of his history with the church, he indicates that he is not criticizing the church for his own sake, but for the good of the church.
Thereby, his family becomes “a victim of social violence and racism in the hostile south of the USA” and this event leaves a deep impression in Macon’s character (Gomez R. 118). So Macon had never experienced a happy childhood and since his mother died in childbirth, he has never had somebody caring for him. Consequently, Milkman grows up without a model father or loving husband. Solid, rumbling, likely to erupt without prior notice, Macon kept each member of his family awkward with fear. His hatred of his wife glittered and sparked in every world he spoke to her.
Boo Radley who “was not seen again for fifteen years”, is the most misunderstood person in Maycomb. His childhood mistakes marginalise him from society by a “form of intimidation Mr Radley employed to keep Boo out of sight.” To elaborate, Boo did not intend to separate himself and be perceived as a “malevolent phantom.” In truth, Boo is intensely lonely and wants to befriend the children in which he saves their lives. Similarly, in The
It is mainly about his relationship with his father and how after his father passed away he realized how his anger and rage, which was depicted as a disease, was legitimate. His father was a paranoid, bitter old man who had a very profound hatred of white people. He used to warn his son that they were “not to be trusted.” Baldwin never understood his father’s hatred for white people; he did not understand that because his father was of the first generation of African Americans to be free that he faced a lot of racism growing up. They never understood why this bitter old man hated the white race so much; all they knew was that his hatred consumed him so much that in the end it was what killed him.
“But there was something...in the sentiment of the discourse itself, or in the imagination of the auditors, which made it [Hooper’s sermon] greatly the most powerful effort that they had ever heard…A subtle power was breathed into his words…” (Hawthorne 177). The veil forced the people focus on the message of his sermon, but they were so quaked by the presence of the veil that they felt Hooper had somehow discovered their hidden wickedness. Some members of the congregation identified with Hooper because they shared in his message of secret sin, but most were frightened by the veil and trembled at the minister’s voice. Although people feared the veil, the emblem gave Hooper a power over souls afflicted with sin.
For instance, Scout announces how a boy made fun of her dad when she explains, “He announced in the school yard the day before that Scout’s daddy defended niggers. I denied it, but told Jem,”(85). Atticus is defending an African American named Tom Robinson. Atticus is sensing hostility from others because it was looked down upon for a white man to protect a black man at the time. Atticus is even getting criticized by children.
And Nwoye 's betrayal of his own father would be converting to be a christian and so he converts to get back at his father for his crime. Nwoye later finds such a joy and love for being a Christian. One reason being the influential wonderful Hymns about, “Darkness and fear, ignorant of the love of God,” they brings grace to Nwoye. (TFA pg 154) Nwoye can relate to these teachings that he learns about in church because of his past expirenienses with losing a best friend and being in a dark place and then finding the light with this peaceful

John Proctor, a character from The Crucible is a Rebel/Misfit Archetype. A Rebel/Misfit is defined as a character that radically rejects the values of a society and the restrictions placed on him or her. I chose to do my research project on John because Proctor is my favorite character from The Crucible and throughout the whole book he was feeling guilty for his actions but wanted to do the right thing. Proctor can also fit into the Hero Archetype for sacrificing his life to save his wife.
The only woman who raised the voice against racial discrimination in the southern America was, Anne Moody.

Whereas some do better with no family by their side some argued having the same situation as other delinquents who may have had a secure family structure and we see on the two positive borders how family makes an impaction on a child life. In the black community the education field for the youth is vital. Education is one of the few ways out of poverty, prison, and the only way to attain sustainable success, but not if its unequal for a child to receive or the different penalty that go along with being in school as black schoolboy/girl. A lot of favorite athletes and even top rappers was channel in the school-prison pipeline such as Curtis James Jackson, III was a piece of data in the concept.

Education is so important for the kids later on; however, in this period of time the kids went to school because their master forced them to go to take care the white children. Walter Calloway was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1848. He response, “…, we didn’ git no schoolin’ ’cep’in befo’ we got big ‘nough to wuk in de fiel’ we go ‘long to school wid de white chillum to take care of ‘em.” Some slaves might lucky that their master would teach them the alphabets only.
