In Tony Went to the Bodega but He Didn’t Buy Anything, Martín Espada shows how culture shock can affect someone who is a minority. The poem starts off by telling us “Tony’s father left the family” (line 1) and immediately I felt sad for Tony, but then it goes on to say that he was a boy who was “nine years old who had to find work” (lines 4-5). Not only does Tony not have a father figure growing up, but due to his financial situation, he now must find a job despite being so young. This is not uncommon because race and socio-economic status are tied, so many minorities have to find jobs at younger, even illegal ages to support their families. At the bodega, Tony not only learns more about his workplace, he learns more about Latino culture.

First, over 700 million dollars is being lost per year just because of the time wasted counting pennies! Imagine you want to buy a nice TV that costs a thousand dollars and you’ve been saving up pennies for awhile now and you think you have enough. You get to the checkout aisle and you sit there for 30 minutes counting all your pennies making a bunch of people angry because they have to wait in line behind you while you count them all. You could get out of that store way faster if you counted nickels or quarters instead of all those pennies. Also, according to
From the beginning, he wanted to make a better life for himself. Through hard work he slowly moved up the ladder and earned a higher paying job.

One is of the opinion that giving money to panhandlers only contributes to a bigger problem. In order to assist with the problem of panhandling requires the assistance of city government and citizens; thus assuring the money given will help those in need. Panhandling has been a problem in the city of Memphis for years and is a growing problem in many cities (“Say No to Panhandling,” 2017). In order to deal with the growing
His oldest son Lyons is thirty-four years old and has a wife, but constantly asks his father for money. In Act one, Troy mentions how it’s not pay day and doesn’t have enough money to loan him. I would think his father, saying that he doesn’t have enough money would stop his son from asking, so Troy gives his wife his whole check which is only seventy-six dollars and forty- two cents.
