In The Hate U Give, “THUG LIFE” is a relevant theme in the book because it represents a history of racial relations in the U.S., is related to current racial issues that still affect ethnic minorities and the effects of racial injustice towards communities of color decades later. To explain as to why “THUG LIFE” is a relevant theme in The Hate U Give is because it is a representation of a history of racial relations in the United States. This is very applicable towards race relations between Black people and White people. But often at times, Hispanics, Asians, Middle Eastern/Arab people and even Native Americans have been left out of the conversation of racial politics and the debate around it. ”They act like I’m the official representative of the black race and they owe me an explanation...If I sit out a protest, I’m making a statement, but if they sit out a protest, they look racist.” This quote that has been stated alludes to a few concepts.
We would later learn that he changed how the game of baseball should be played. We see what Robinson did when Simon says, “It is possible to see, In Robinson’s slow, purposeful walk into the face of taunts, threats, some of the unbowed courage that Americans would later admire in the civil rights marchers who faced down stinging water sprays, sharp rocks, and snapping police dogs” (Simon, 5). With what we know about Jackie, we know that he stuck up for what he believed in and showed it through the way he talked to people and his actions on and off the field. Jackie Robinson had dealt with segregation when he was in the Army. He had issues with the Discriminant Racial actions.
In “Do The Right Thing”, there are many racist stereotypes portrayed by the characters, and show destruction towards the neighborhood consisting of trash talking, police violence, and riots. This same concept is also portrayed in “The Black Power mixtape”, where many Black activists explain how African Americans fought for their rights through the help of the Black Panther Party that started in Oakland, California. Both films illustrate the struggle African Americans went through, and shows that even with all of the violence and brutality, they still had pride and power. The issues portrayed in these films are extremely important because they highlight cultural differences and problems that still go on in the world today. Racism is still very present in todays society through out all races, and police brutality is still a huge issue that may only get worse.
Maxson’s had the bad luck of having to grow up when racism was the biggest part of America. This meant that all professional baseball teams were still not for black people from playing. In fences, the troy character is very negative just because, he suffered in his past. In Fences, August Wilson shows that troy is a villain because he is unfair to his wife, wants to control everyone, and mean with his son. In the fences, August describe how Troy is a villain because of the unfair to his wife.
“4!” I yelled to my outfielder as the runner was running home. The runner was running fast and he was almost at home plate. The outfielder threw the baseball in and hoped the batter would be out as it was the last out of the inning. “Tag!” my teammates exclaimed as the baseball entered my glove and I went to tag the runner. The runner came hurtling in and as he ran, I was bringing my glove around to tag him, but I did not get my glove in place fast enough.
Not that the fans and teammates weren't enough, he also had to deal with other players from other teams around the league purposely trying to hit him in the head, slide their spikes into him trying to injure him. After all of that, Robinson still held a strong 11-year career with Brooklyn("Jackie Robinson"). Nevertheless, Robinson was highly disrespected around the whole league, he didn't back down from the hate by letting his playing do the talking. His legacy helped show teams not to overlook a player based on the color of his skin, look at the player’s talent, potential, heart + hustle and the way he is as a person. For what he did, Robinsons effect on scouts and the front-office for teams changed how they looked at a player.
The two sides were already at each other’s throats with civil idea differences, land ownership issues, and a passion for the same subject: slavery. This convoluted case only made the water boil more. Tension throughout America tightened as yet another civil rights case went in favor of the white man. As previously stated, racism has been a part of America’s history since our ancestors settled here years ago. African Americans used as slaves and not recognized as real people was a daily behavior.
The third base coach was furious he was in the umpire’s face saying that he just wanted the game to end so he call the kid out. The play itself wasn’t the really cool part, it was that our team had pulled together and beat the team that had knocked us out of the tournament before in extra innings on a lucky hit. None of us knew it yet, but this was going to be a great year. We were almost like
The intent of this rule is to penalize the offensive team for intentional, and unfair action by the runner by leaving the baseline for the obvious purpose of crashing into someone, in this case, Ruben Tejada on a double play, rather than trying to reach the base. This was obviously an umpire’s perspective. If the appropriate rule had been applied correctly during Game 2, the Mets would have been given a double play, and the inning would have been over, with the Mets up 2-1. In addition, the Mets quickly released a statement about the the suspension of Utley, saying it was “the appropriate course of action.” However, on Twitter, the Dodgers responded to Utley’s decision to the appeal, “The Dodgers stand behind Chase Utley and his decision to appeal the suspension issued tonight by MLB.

The question is, do the White Sox send Latos to the bullpen or just release him? The White Sox need a long reliever in the pen who can take the mound when a starter is injured or getting lit up.
