Throughout Toundi’s life he has been treated inferiorly for being of a darker shade of skin than the European settlers, with criticism both overt and subtle. The reader experiences the subtle racism from Toundi’s point of view as he moves from innocence to awareness. (this affects the reader 's point of view on the whole novel as the most subtle and indirect effective developments of the theme of racism. The imagery that Ferdinand Oyono uses to show how racism helps the reader understand the tension between the natives and the colonists. )
Gay went to London after finishing his studies to be an apprentice to a silk merchant but he disliked the job. He continued exploring other jobs in London; being a secretary to the Duchess of Monmouth as well as Lord Clarendon, which all did not last. However, Gay had a passion towards the pastoral genre, which is known to beautify the life of rural people creating an unrealistic misconception of their lifestyle. He then became an English poet which gained him a spot in English history. Let us take a look at what influenced Gay to write some of his most notable works leading up to the Beggar’s Opera.
It is similar to the feeling of being underestimated. The brave Africans were underestimated and were not valued and perhaps up to this day, they are racially discriminated by immoral, rude individuals and dreadful communities. Millions of Africans were captured and sent to America as slaves. Also, they were sold and traded as if they weren’t living. They aren’t just robbed out from their homelands but their souls and beliefs are also judged.
Another explanation of the violence is blamed on the ANC government’s service delivery bad record, what Apartheid didn’t damage, the ANC did. South African xenophobia has also been explained by the level of social and economic inequality in the country. It has been noted that the greatest punishments of xenophobic violence have been carried out in borders of formal society, where foreign nationals compete with the poorest South Africans to make themselves a basic living. And then
Immigration today is a controversial issue for many, although immigrants are the core of this nation. America is formed and ingrained by histories of diverse cultures from all around the world. Multiculturalism is a debatable issue in America. Diverse people have many different views of things, similar or unalike, approve or disapprove. Some people think that multiculturalism is damaging, whereas some others think that multiculturalism is constructive.
In the novels, The Time Machine by H.G. Wells and Dune by Frank Herbert, there are underlying tones of classism, parochial thinking, and ignorance which lead to the common themes of racism and division within societies, which directly draws parallels to modern American behaviors. Authors Wells and Herbert emphasize the negative human conditions through their characters within their society, stressing the notion that the current common human behavior will ultimately lead to a bigger divide amongst races and will further create a dystopian lifestyle where humanity and environment will cease to
This injustice can truly be seen through the misconduct imposed toward the African American community. Michelle Alexander, similarly, points out the same truth that African American men are targeted substantially by the criminal justice system due to the long history leading to racial bias and mass incarceration within her text “The New Jim Crow”. Both Martin Luther King Jr.’s and Michelle Alexander’s text exhibit the brutality and social injustice that the African American community experiences, which ultimately expedites the mass incarceration of African American men, reflecting the current flawed prison system in the U.S. The American prison system is flawed in numerous ways as both King and Alexander points out. A significant flaw that was identified is the injustice of specifically targeting African American men for crimes due to the racial stereotypes formed as a result of racial formation.
The human race has evolved as a unit to become a leery race. Rather than join others in arm to share the same ideologies, welcome foreigners into a conglomerate and believe what is told, humans find it necessary to question validity and carry ideas of skepticism. There is no better example than the western world’s political climate at this very moment, those who have been residing in the United States are currently being deported because a malinformed and dubious leadership has become wary of others. However one may question, where has this human trait stemmed from? The answer lies within the race itself; through the manipulation of rhetoric and the formation of lies, individuals are growing to adopt cultural views that are built from fallacy.
Many writers were successful showing the economic and social progress along with the social problems the society was facing at the time. Writers like Charles Dickins wrote about the hypocrisy of the people facing hunger, poverty and infant mortality on his novel, Oliver Twist. It is a story of Phillip Pirrip an orphan apprentice of the dirty work of forging, looking to become a noble gentleman describing his life from infancy to maturity. It could be considered a semi autobiography of Charles Dickens. It’s a tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward.
CASTE BASED RESERVATIONS The Indian society has a high degree of structural inequality based on the doctrine of the caste system. The caste system is based on the principle of pollution purity, which involves the division of people into castes with unequal and hierarchical assignment of economic and civil rights ascribed by birth. Social exclusion among the castes is ensured through the practices of endogamy and social separation. Exclusion is, thus, internal to the system, and a necessary outcome of its basic features. The untouchable castes located at the bottom of the hierarchy suffered the most as they were historically denied the rights to property, business (except the occupations that were considered as impure and polluting), education, civil, cultural, and religious rights.
