However, not for this boy, his drunken; aggressive dad beats him up with a beer bottle that makes him the one who is unreliable and has the worst influence. These are ironic because the person we admire is actually the “worst of all.” William Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello shows the themes of reality through the characters, and their action, Imagine Dragon’s song “Demons” illustrates themes through lyrics and the music video. Both works illustrate the three themes because people always have a hidden side. They are always jealous of what others have. Also, they lose to their dark side.
They're real sad." "Sad, how come?" "They don't belong anywhere. Colored folks won't have 'em because they're half white; white folks won't have 'em 'cause they're colored, so they're just in-betweens, don't belong anywhere." (Ch.16, Pg.168) Mr. Raymond acted as if he was drunk so he that he wouldn't need to explain to anyone his love for a black woman.

Jesus Christ, you’re a crazy bastard!” On page 20, “The boss gives him hell when he’s mad but eh stable buck don’t give a damn about that.” The reason the book might have been banned was because of racial comments.

Guidry hates being refuted, due to the amount of power he holds, which you can see when he says this statement “Maybe you’re just a little too smart for your own good,” (49) to Grant after he uses his intellect to swiftly dodge a question. Guidry clearly isn’t fond of Grant’s actions because it shows that he is a lot smarter than the average African American, which could be threatening to Guidry as a racist white man with an abundance of power. Guidry also tells Grant that at the first sign of aggravation, or if he manages to cause a riot with his words, that everything is to be called off, which is just Guidry’s way of showing off his power through his racist, yet genuine feelings. In the end this novel showcases situations of power struggle several times. Whether it be through Henri Picot who willfully upholds the status quo due to his position at the top of said hierarchy, or whether it be through Matthew Antoine who was stuck at the bottom all his life and let the adverse effects of such a status get to him.
The monster is spurned by society because of his horrific appearance, his body, alone and hated, unfit for the company of strangers, just as Frankenstein fears he is. He is miserable which makes the hatred grow, as he says, “all men hate the wretched; how then must I be hated, who am miserable beyond all living things!” In fact, this wretchedness and enforced isolation is the monster’s main character trait, parallel to the isolation being Frankenstein’s biggest fear. Now that Victor is in college, he does not have his family to fall back upon for affection. Repetitive The monster embodies this worry as well, as even the monster’s family “ you, [Frankenstein,] my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us.” While Frankenstein still has his family to fall upon for affection, the monster does not. This adds another layer to Frankenstein's fear: the worry that he will lose the affection guaranteed to him by his family and be left with nothing confusing.

Goldwater was an unfavorable candidate from the start, he was seen to be too much of an extremist and was not popular against the well liked Lyndon B. Johnson. The slogan he came up with for the campaign was widely ridiculed for making it seem like being for Goldwater was something to be ashamed of. The Democrats also made fun of the slogan, coming up with their own “In your guts you know he’s nuts” motto. Overall, the Goldwater campaign was a devastating defeat for the Republicans after Johnson won an astonishing 10:1 in electoral college votes

Bartleby’s actions and living conditions which should have prompted an investigation of his mental health instead resulted in Bartleby’s complete shunning not only from the office, but also from the entire building; making the lawyer’s later attempts to care for Bartleby futile. Conversely, the hunger artist’s alienation forms as a result of the society marketing his lack of interest in food in order to make money. His oddity brings him fame and fortune, which he has
But when a black man asks for help and gets killed, they have a bunch excuses, which is some bull shit to me. It’s so irritating, and it pisses me off in all types of ways. Why can’t we get our justice? You don’t see white people dying everyday. It’s my fellow brothers or sisters.
