Symbolic interactionalism was unintentionally the main theory; but the feminist theory can also be used as a basis to study this book’s topic. “The feminist theory criticizes the hierarchical structures in society that treat women and minorities unfairly; sociology has traditionally been male dominated; feminist theory is rooted in conflict and symbolic interactionism” To look at it in the Aryan’s perspective, they consider themselves as the minority, for they believe other races are out to kill them and the whites are becoming the minority. As I watched videos and interviews with people who associate themselves with the KKK, they believe that, President Barack Obama, is ignoring them. They do not feel heard, protected, or present in America. This theory affects the points raised in the book by putting the readers in an Aryan’s perspective.
People may feel this was if someone was hurting them (or something) and even if they told them to stop, they would continue harassing them (bullying). People may say that teriorst or criminals are not good at heart because they have done something hurtful or rough. In a story under the article People are truly good at heart? Sadly,no, It reported “In 2006, terrorist plotted to destroy as many as 10 planes flying from London to North America.” This is an argument that I would disagree with these people should not be looked at as objects because they have feelings to and probably have families that really care about them. It is classified that without feelings, we would not be considered ‘humans’.
He continues by mentioning the names of suspects whom were killed by the police with a little bit of background information to make the audience feel anger towards the situations. Coates asks the questions; “Was Walter Scott’s malfunctioning third-brake light really worth a police encounter?... Do we really want people trained to fight crime dealing with someone who’s ceased taking medications?” Coates makes the claim that experts should handle the situations not only the police, as they are specially trained to handle a suicidal man or a mentally ill one. Coates questions the audience again on whether if sending the police to handle the situations that led to the death of the victims was the right call. Situations should be handled by experts in the field, and that the police are “only women and men who specialize
A normal person probably wouldn’t feel “an impulse to cry aloud with joy” when they hear a scream of pain. This also links back to my claim that he changes over the course of the story. It relates to the claim because my first quote showed him saying he does not approve of Zaroff murdering people yet this quote shows he is very violent himself. “ ‘Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds.
In “The Boys Are Not All Right” by Michael Ian Black, the author uses different powers of persuasion to convince the audience to succumb to his opinion that men today don’t know how to properly express their feelings because of cultural norms that expressing your feelings is associated with weakness and femininity. He starts the article by drawing on the fact that almost all mass shootings have been committed by men. He says that men tend to lash out in anger because they don’t know how to properly express their feelings. He attempts to persuade his reader to start a conversation on how to make it more acceptable in society for men to express their emotions in a way that doesn’t potentially hurt others. The author uses an interesting time to
The author’s tone in this quote is violent and bitter. Eric saying that he “hated almost everyone “, would support the reader’s thinking towards what kind of person Eric is, and what Eric is thinking. Eric’s use of language almost immediately gives the reader a hint of what he is capable of, not in the sense that he would literally “rip is head off and eat it” but in the sense that he is capable of doing bad things. Given the fact that people throughout the United States have already heard of the mass shooting in Columbine, the reader would promptly identify Eric as the killer and they would be right. The author’s purpose could be to keep the reader thinking: who is the killer?
The government may be seen as the problem to some for the political violence that came from this time, but I’d argue that Medium Cool highlights just how corrupt and unethical the media really is. Instead of tear gas, guns, and batons, the camera is the ultimate weapon. “Is that thing loaded?” jokes the manager of the shooting range during an interview. The nature of the
has weak gun laws, the background checks are ineffective, and too many mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. Massacres and tragedies keep reoccurring throughout America at the hands of guns. The reason of blame falls on the shoulders of the U.S. because the government is inept to the fact that the gun laws are not strong enough, the backgrounds checks are useless, and that mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. If gun violence is to decrease in America there needs to be immediate action taken by the government to make stronger gun laws, harsher and effective background checks and ban all mentally ill people from owning a gun. These can be the steps taken by the government of the U.S. to create harsher gun control and a safer environment to live
What they found was that people who “who saw a black face first, they were also quicker to call a wrench a gun” (233). This happens because people get primed by media. On all of news channel they percent the faces and the video of the crime. So whenever they show a different race person as a suspect, people start to see that race as a threat just like how Pakistani believes that America is precious land. However, in reality everything is different from what people were primed to
Murder can be defined as “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another”. How then, are others able to make us sympathize with not only murderers, but people who have committed horrendous crimes? For example, the media is constantly attempting to humanize rapists and even terrorists with phrases like “lone wolf” or “alienated and adrift.” Such phrases make some of us want to pity the criminal. This can be seen when we compare Perry Smith and Dick Hickock from Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. Capote portrays only one of these two seemingly distinct characters (Perry) in a way that the reader feels the need to relate to and even sympathize with him.
