While the slips of paper are being pulled, Mrs Adams says “Some places have already quit lotteries.” She did not randomly bring up this point, and was most likely thinking about why she is even doing it. The Adam’s attitude demonstrates that some people no longer want to practice the Lottery, probably because they realize how terrible it

Whites would often call me out and tell me I couldn’t go places, or take part in activities because of the color of my skin. I was often discriminated against going to places like school or boxing.

On pg 19 we see a Miss. Caroline Fisher who is a new teacher in Maycomb, and is clueless to how stuff works around there. She is perplexed when Walter cunningham won't take her quarter to buy lunch. Scout rises up and tells Mrs.Caroline Fisher pg 20 “Miss Caroline, he’s a Cunningham”, as if he is a different species. Harper Lee does a great job showing how the innocent word of a kid may not sound prejudice to them, simply because they have grown up and been raised around this idea or thought.
I was so different from my other classmates, that I wanted to adopt new culture to become “normal”. I had not appreciated what my family has gone through and how their culture was apart of my history. Lastly, when his sister said, “What’s this crap about getting dressed up”(4), demonstrates the difference his family had between the fantasy families seen on television. It shows how they were not appreciative and grateful of what they were given. Growing up, I didn’t get why I had a small
At first I didn’t really like him because he was destroying our team 19-6 and he had 12 of those 19 and of course I was forced to defend him. Plus, nobody likes to have their opponent score all of the points. “Good game Fred!” Drake shouted while leaving the court.

I remember my first day at Northeast Prep I was a sophomore in high school. The teacher called the attendance; she came across my name and said “Dik-ia”. The students all of a sudden commence into laughter. Although I figured she was talking about me, I did not respond considering I was not for sure whom she was talking about until she said my last name. I corrected her even though I was somewhat self-conscious, yet she did not mean any harm.
Of course, that was more of a scare tactic to make sure we weren’t bad kids. The exchange from eighth grade to freshman year was actually pretty easy. Most high school teachers are surprisingly nice and lenient when it comes to certain assignments and things, and a lot of them sympathize with your problems. My first problem was trying to find people I could talk to because most of my friends were divided among other classes and I, being the only teenager in the world without a cellphone, was not able
This is an example of informational influence because these customers had conformed to the way others were behaving by following the line in the first lane even though the second lane was completely empty and had no sign stating it was closed. These customers assumed the other drivers knew something they ignored so they followed without questioning. 4) I remember when I took my first shot of tequila. I was in 12th grade and had been invited to attend a birthday party by a girl whose parents were very permissive.
"The treatment of African Americans toward American powers mirrored the separation they endured at home," is something my great grandparents would tell me about America as before.

As my parents grew up, they constantly had to listen to the horrific stories about war and what has went on within the world even if they didn 't want to listen to it. My parents would say
I am a free African American, but in a since I am not free. I am not a free person because I am not allowed to vote or speak out for myself and my country where I live in. I want to have rights, but I am not allowed to due to some circumstances. Even though I am a free African American, people are saying that there is no proof that I am a free African American. Also, when a white American captures me, I do not have proof that I was a free African American, and I will be sent into slavery.
