Another example happens when Marilyn learns about the protocol from Barton. “You're going to make me die and I didn't do anything to die for--I didn't do anything--”(4). Marilyn cries about how she hasn't done anything, but in reality she was the one who walked on the ship to see her brother who she would've seen in a year if she waited. Now she could never see him. She walked past the sign that said “UNAUTHORIZED PERSONNEL KEEP OUT,” absentmindedly not thinking about the true consequences of her actions.
She talked about how she was judge because of the scar and was made fun of. She never lifted her head up after the accident because she was scared of being judged. Walker wrote about how awful her life was until she got the scar removed. After she got it removed, everything changed. She was able to lift her head up, she got the man of her dreams, she was considered popular.
There were a few things that were shown of Erma, Rex’s mom. She was also a drunk and a little bit racist. She could never let go of her misery and perhaps that’s why Rex is such a heavy drinker now. The people in Welch were all like Erma, they were racist, like to fight and had something to prove. The kids at school would call Jeannette and her siblings poor and “special” for having accents.
But when the sun does come out for those mere two hours, they play and forget about Margot. But after the sun disappears, they remember, and guilt and shame overcome them. Bradbury leaves us with a cliffhanger, but we can infer that the kids apologize to her. Maybe some kids believed her, but did not want to admit it. But we are sure, that Margot will never be teased for this reason, as she was right all along.
Hongs words come out in spits and anger when she reports that the boy was slow with his work because he was sick and starving… After that Hong became the best worker in her unit even though she was many years younger than the others.”(pg55) When Chou was describing Hong’s experience she described Hong’s language as if it were like spitting to show just how upsetting and angry it made her just to talk about what she witnessed. Because the soldiers made an example out of that boy, they made it
I was being constantly bullied even though my parents already have informed the bus owner numerous times to have these students stay away from me. Whenever the topic would be brought up again, it is when their laughs are at its loudest, and I do remember holding back the tears in my eyes – being one of those kids who endures her pain just for the sake of others’ entertainment, I continued to bear whatever words they shot at me. I purposely did not want to search how an Igorot looks like, or at least seems like. I have never searched who they are as an ethnic group. It was not that I was upset because they made fun of the person I portrayed, but it was because I was made fun of – they were laughing at me, involving an ethnic group that are both (myself and the ethnic group) supposed to be respected.
During the great depression not many people had it easy and Curley’s Wife was one of those people who didn’t have so easy especially because she was a woman and at the time they didn’t have many rights. Curley’s Wife is the most misunderstood character because of her background, her seemingly unloving husband, and troubling times during the great depression. To begin, Curley’s Wife has hard times and is misunderstood because she takes her emotions out on innocent people. One example of when Curley’s wife took her anger out on an innocent person is when she yelled at Crooks. She had yelled, “Well, you keep your place then, nigger.
In Don't Give Up The Fight, Ava held back, she didn’t give the bullies the fulfillment they needed to figure out she was hurt. If she fought back, the whole story would have changed. Ava wouldn’t of needed help from a friend and the story would have ended sooner without all of Ava’s suffering and defeat. But, Susan B Anthony stood up to the judges and didn’t stop fighting until she got her way. If she didn’t stand up like she did, she would have accepted defeat, making the women's rights movement even more vulnerable.
The theme is overcoming obstacles because Ava in the passage was discriminated by her teammates and had to overcome her adversity. The quote “Ava, are you dead? At that the team shed fake tears and sobbed at the fake death,” shows that Ava is getting bullied by all of the other kids on her track team. Not only are the kids bullying Ava but her own coach is also. For example, Mr. McCoy said, “You guys are so funny” when the kids
However after, one transition, that all changed. I wasn 't paying attention, and a girl hit me in the face with the back of her head. I flew down crying. I felt liquid down my throat. Once I got back up and went to my bench, the ref called a foul, but on me.
If I had been caught, and something had happened to Liesel, Hans or Rosa, I don 't know what I would have done. I left my poor mother at home so I could seek safety but putting another family in danger to save my life was never my intention. When the inspector came today, I came to the terrifying realisation that everywhere I go, danger follows. I can’t bear the guilt of putting their lives at risk any longer. Although I must stay put with the Hubermann’s for now, I can definitely see myself leaving Himmel Street in the near future to secure Liesel, Rosa and Hans’ safety.
While Pit Bulls do indeed possess a feisty and spirited character, the history of the breed reveals a much more complex tapestry of personality and temperament. When did Pit bulls start to be villainized? People started using the dogs for their own selfish means without thought for what a dog was actually for. Pit bulls were used to guard things like houses, junkyards or illegal items and activities. Dog fights were a common event that also helped to perpetuate the problem for bully breeds.
