Other techniques that were used include hyperboles such as when the unknown hitchhiker also stated “If I opened my mouth it would spill out like a torrent of acid” (Page 24). The story also used the techniques of imagery where the hitchhiker described what their sister looked like “then the memory of Melanie’s grey face with the bruises around her neck and the dried blood in her hair jumped up to haunt me”. (Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing. Overall the story is very engaging to its readers, especially for those who don’t like long stories. Fresh Bait was one of the best stories that was read out of all of the Top Stories 2.

In this film, it was a teenage girl and her friend causing havoc on their hometown. Jill, though the main antagonist, does not show any evil qualities until she is revealed to be involved with the murders. She actually portrays herself as innocent throughout the movie. Sidney even claims to see some of herself in Jill in one instance, telling her “you remind me of… me.” (Scream 4). However, once this is revealed, all of these similar ‘heroic’ qualities turned dark.
From elementary school all the way to ninth grade I was bullied on multiple occasions for not looking apart of the in crowd. I was not as skinny as everyone else, I wore purple cricked glasses, my hair was always in a bun or a braid; I had a uni-brow, and my fashion sense was immature. As the result of the way I looked during those years I was labeled as unattractive, un-dateable, and that smart weird girl. As I got older and the more I heard these things I started to see myself as unattractive. I also have a twin who was the complete opposite of me during those years.
“You’re not trying hard enough,” she told them. While she never quite said it in words, she let them know that a Black person shouldn’t be number one…” (pp. 42-43).

These children find it difficult to find their place in society and are pressured to pick a single race to identify with but sometimes, neither races would accept them just because they’re not full of the race. For example, one of my classmates are multiple races and back in her hometown, they were racist towards her because she wasn 't just one race and her “friends” would make racist jokes towards her, you know just trying to be funny meanwhile it was hurting her feelings. That type of discrimination affects the children because when they receive racism, it is most likely that they are going to turn out to be just as racist because since they experienced racism, they 're most likely going to be racist towards the race that were racist towards them. Also, children will mimic what they see, so if they see people being racist towards each other they are going to act just like that. Lorde encourages people to speak out and take action to change the social conditions of our lives.
