In the beginning of the story he says, "If we don't look out the white race will be-will be utterly submerged…”. Though he took this view from a book, the fact that he would openly agree with it shows that he is arrogant enough to even consider himself above these other races, (though the general consensus of that time period followed the same line of thought). To conclude, Tom Buchanan was an arrogant, greedy, hypocritical man. He lived under the false assumption that he was better than most. This is why he was able to spout his hypocrisy on others.
At the heart of whiteness studies is the invisibility of whiteness and white privilege (Ahmed, 2004). Whiteness is thought of as the hidden criterion to which every other race is measured against. Through the lens of whiteness, the “other” is seen as deviant (Ahmed, 2004). The invisibility of whiteness, however, is only from the perspective of those who are white (Matthews, 2012). To people who are not white, it is pervasive and blatant.
These privileges can stem from the fact that white people are still a dominant group in American society. White privilege is not having to further elaborate where you are from when asked. Simply answering that you are from Massachusetts, Florida, or any other state isn't enough to satisfy someone when you aren't white. "No I mean where are you really from?" usually follows your answer.
Mr. Donnegan thought it was for the best to let Charlie go. There was a petition going around to get Charlie fired. There was 840 names on the petition and Charlie noticed that a certain person didn’t sign it, Fanny Girden. Charlie got upset when Fanny questioned him on how he got so smart so fast. He got angry because she was saying how it wasn’t possible for it to happen so quickly and Charlie just wanted to prove her wrong.
By criticizing a group that most people dislike it gets reader to agree with him. Consequently, anyone who is a “fan” of al-Qaeda may be very offended by Krauthammer’s argument and disagree quite immediately. He then continues his article by proving his point with facts about the ten years that followed the 9/11 attack. This gives him some factual credibility and believability. He then pretty much concludes his argument by comparing this attack to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
In addition to the meaning of a memorial being an important factor, the location also has a big importance. While discussing the controversies brought with the news of the location of the Holocaust museum Christine Musser said, ”the Holocaust would be built in the United States, who did little to stop the Holocaust from occurring ” (Source E). All around Jewish and non-Jewish people were angered by the news. People thought it was offensive that a country who did so little to prevent the cruel events that happened during the Holocaust was going to be the one to memorialize it. The museum was meant to be a place of remembrance, but since it was going to be built on the national mall people saw it only as a symbol of disrespect to the Jewish community.
I picked these paragraphs because it is when the reader is introduced to the dysfunction in Sarah and Edwards relationship. I was very anxious upon reading. I tried my best to have a clear, loud voice and to go slow so I would not rush through and poorly express what I was trying to get across. I found it challenging, however, to determine a tone that I wanted to portray because I was not reading dialogue. I did however try to express an annoyance in my tone when I read the following sentence as I interpreted Sarah being annoyed of Edward, "[i]t wouldn't be so bad if he didn't insist on dragging her into everything" (Atwood, par.7).
‘How to Explain White Supremacy to a White Supremacist,’ is a poem that addresses multiple issues within racism that we do not often care to look at. It is written by a powerful public speaker and activist commonly know as Guante. It dives under the surface of what you see on the news and really hits home with its moving stanzas full of intelligent metaphors. I believe this poem to be all about the bystanders, who sit and watch people make derogatory comments and remarks yet fail to tell them it is wrong. This message really made me passionate about using my voice and encouraging others to do the same.
Although this is the case and I still believe it to be true, I assume that because I don 't know too many gay people personally, my unconcious thoughts prefer straight people. Gender: For the test on gender my results stated that I have a moderate association of females with humanities and males with sciences. This test was one of the ones that made me realize the most. I have always loved science subjects in school and I still do, but my results showed that I associate males with sciences more than females. I have never thought about this too much as I have always thought about getting a job involved with science and never really doubted the association with woman and sciences.
I am really good with grammar and easy stuff like nouns and pronouns and FANBOYS, but when it comes to the ACT, it becomes really difficult. I wasn’t very confident when I was taking the practice test, and I did really bad on the actual test. I know that it hurt my grade, but I can only hope for the best now, and do everything I possibly can to fix it. My favorite story would most likely be “The Crucible” because I could actually understand what was going on most of the time. I loved the plot and how all the characters fell together in the story.
