On the contrary, people during the Civil Rights movement are not allowed to attend sit-ins or any other type of protest (Hayes 77). While black people are discriminated constantly for standing up for themselves, Auggie is never told not to stand up for himself. Julian, a bully who appears throughout Wonder, asks Auggie, “what’s the deal with your face” (Placio 29). Auggie and his friends then proceed to call out Julian and do not get in trouble for it. The fact that Auggie does not get in trouble for standing up for himself is one reason discrimination is not depicted throughout Wonder correctly.
John had explicitly called the rockets “fool things” and threw out all of Homer’s rocket building tools in the pouring rain, saying it’s “right where they belong.” The amount of discouragement and impertinence these actions hold is beyond imaginable. Additionally, when Homer’s father said “I've been mad as hell at you. But it's the first time in your life I've been ashamed of you.” Imperils Homer’s emotional and mental well being a substantial amount. Especially when one knows the odds of becoming successful coming from a town like ‘Coalwood’ is little to slim. In spite of this, Homer managed to be persistent throughout his work, and with indefatigability continued to pursue his dream.
Similarly, Pony expressed: “I really couldn’t see what the Socs would have to worry about - good grades, good cars, good girls, madras and Mustangs and Corvairs - Man, I thought, if I had worries like that I’d consider myself lucky.” Assuming that the Socs have no problems, Pony comes to the conclusion that it’s only the Greasers that have all the rough breaks. Next, Pony thinks that the Socs aren’t fair because they jump Greasers for fun and don’t think about the effect that it has on the Greasers. Furthermore, the Socs don’t fight fair, they gang up on the Greasers and they intimidate them. Last but not least, the Socs don’t feel anything. For example, Pony announced: “Socs were always
Poverty also led the Lacks 's family to injustice for them and their mother 's cells because they simply couldn 't afford a lawyer. The book says, "So in attempt to get Hopkins to give them what they saw as their cut of the HeLa profits they made handouts about Henrietta Lack 's family being owed their due, and gave them to customers at Lawrence 's store". This illustrates that although Lawrence and Sonny couldn 't afford a lawyer, the next best thing was to spread the word, and also shows how they just had to make do with what they had. Rebecca Skloot shows how poverty was a major problem for the Lacks 's family in, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks". Ranging from medical problems to being an easy target to having injustice.
It does so by making the setting the roaring 20’s because that time period is full of moral ambiguity. It’s during this era that women find themselves becoming flappers after being suppressed for so long, the prohibition takes place, and women are gaining the right to vote. The idea of women having rights is inherently good, but to some was an example of their rights becoming less powerful and making this idea evil. Giving the era itself moral ambiguity and creating an environment where Gatsby and other characters feel obligated to throw parties where drinking is encouraged, have a man commit adultery, the idea of divorce, and dishonesty. Overall, moral ambiguity plays a large role in the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
She knows the trouble she will get in with her teacher Miss Crocker and Mama when she stands up for Little Man. Cassie says on page 27 “Miz Crocker,” I said, I don’t want my book neither.” She says this because in the front cover of their books it has a chart that shows who has owned it and the condition it is in. It says nigra, very poor condition, and that is why Little Man doesn’t want his because he thinks it is not fair that they get the old worn out ones, and the white students get the brand new ones. This is why Cassie understands that Little Man doesn’t want his book, and how she stands up for him. She shows courage by this
‘We mustn’t let anything happen to Piggy, must we?’” (117). When Simon speaks up and says he’ll go. Ralph turns to look at Jack, clearly ticked off.

In summary, Lord of the Flies is a novel about a bunch of boys who get stuck on a deserted island and have the proper resources, and Ralph and Jack have different ways charge to control it
All of these events were unnecessary to the survival of the boys’ and actually resulted in unwanted deaths and situations. All of the boys decisions can’t be blamed on their own human instincts, they were choices they made on their own selfish accord. Rodger represents the class bully in Lord of the Flies. He abuses and torments the little kids on the island by exhibiting: Roger gathered a handful of stones and began to throw them. Yet there was a space round Henry, perhaps six yards in diameter, into which he dare not throw.
Miss Moore, a mentor plans a summer trip for the children in Harlem to an expensive toy shop, F.A.O Schwarz to teach them a lesson about the value of money.

Although, Chris took action into going to the wild very quickly without thorough thinking of the consequences that could have come across his way he did have a very good time exploring the wild and met amazing people along the way that made him appreciate society in the long run.

Piggy represents the rational world. However, he cannot be the leader himself because he lacks leadership qualities and has no support with the other boys. Piggy has a very intellectual personality, however he heavily believes in the basic principles that were established when the boys first crashed onto the island. Such as, only talking when one holds the conch. This shows that Piggy relies too heavily
