(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. The alcohol, he said, gave the community of Maycomb a reason to say, he didn't realize what he was doing. These kind of relations were completely unheard of during this time. Aunt Alexandra demonstrates discrimination, even against her own race, when she refused to allow Scout to have Walter Cunningham over for
Why are these choices so important? A choice made by Mr.fisher that affects paul was when he overlooked the area and all of its issues. He didn't exactly say that they lived within feet of the muck fire, he also never said that tangerine was known for lightning striking on a consistent day to day basis.” mom would never say it but i bet we were both thinking the same, what else had dad “overlooked” about tangerine?”(pg.27). Both Mrs.fisher and paul had mixed emotions on dad overlooking such
Seeing my own family member put their life in danger to save millions of others does not add up to someone kneeling on the sideline during the National Anthem. The flag represents freedom and justice and those who are being oppressed feel as though these certain rights are being taken away and that is why it is okay for someone to kneel during the National Anthem. While many people believe that kneeling during the National Anthem is wrong and is disrespectful to the country’s ideals, what many Americans do not realize is that if they look past their beliefs and try
Australians attitude towards war changed because it was not what they had in mind. They had not expected it to be as gruesome as they had imagined it to be. As the war progressed and as more of their friends were killed from the war, they realised that war was not something that they wanted to be a part of. While war became more realistic the soldiers, they became less enthusiastic. Australia remains loyal to Britain throughout the war even though war was not what they expected.
Exploration shaped Australia because if sea explorers did not come to Australia. It would not be known today as it is. 3. What was life like for Aboriginal people before the arrival of the white faced people? Everything was peaceful and calm and they would not have any wars or man-made guns to fight, and that is why when the Europeans came to Australia there was big war fights between them and they claimed the land as their own because the small spears were no match for the guns.
"Secretly, Miss Finch, I 'm not much of a drinker, but you see they could never, never understand that I live like I do because that 's the way I want to live." (Lee 200 par. 11 ) This quote shows that Dolphus thinks that he need to pretend he is a drunk to explain to the rest of the town that that drinking is the reason he is white and he married a black woman and they have kids together. That is just sad that society wouldn’t just accept his decisions of marrying a black woman. During this time period, it was a sin for blacks and whites to have kids together.
If the flag changed it would become very confusing not only for people in Australia but also for people visiting Australia and other people around the world. As stated from Flags Australia, “The current flag is already well known internationally and it its distinctive and attractive design is effective in promoting Australian identity overseas.” This shows that if it was changed no one would recognise it as we are all comfortable with the current flag. Do you have $25 million to spare? Changing the flag would be very
Sometimes Dad’s odd jobs would come through, or he’d win some money gambling, and we’d eat for a few days. Then the money would be gone and the refrigerator would be empty again” (Walls 67). Rose Mary did not provide an income for the family, she spends most of her time immersed in various artistic projects, though never ones that could support her family. She also did not like to cook and often told her children to cook for themselves; it is due to her careless attitude that Jeannette burned
His parties had everything one could ever imagine in one place, except for him, and most people left the party “without having met Gatsby at all” (Fitzgerald 45). Many of the guests did not find it odd that the host was never around, but this piece of information is quite significant in supporting Gatsby’s motif in throwing the party in the first place. The reason why Gatsby was never around and mingling with his guests was because he was feverishly surveying the crowd for Daisy’s radiant face to appear, but, unfortunately, it never did. In addition, Nick Carraway, Daisy’s cousin, just so happened to be invited to one of Gatsby’s great parties even though “people were not invited-they went there” (45). If people did not get invited to Mr. Gatsby’s parties, then why was Nick?
In The Lottery, the characters of the story follow traditional ideas, however they do not inquire about these ideas that are not moral at all. Initially, the people of a small village have a lottery that occurs each year in which the winner ironically doesn’t win money, but wins a ticket to death. The villagers show no sign of excitement, but they are rather demonstrating that an event such as this one is not fun at all. In addition to that, the box is a major symbol in the story. The box is very shabby, demonstrating that they don’t take care of it or fix it.
