When discovered she covers her guilt and shame by accusing him of rape. In this era and in this community, Mayella’s accusation is seen as reasonable and unfortunately believable, which leaves Tom beaten before he enters the trial. However, Atticus expresses a powerful message in his closing argument to create a move for change in his society.

The first instance this idea is introduced is in the opening scene of West Side Story. The opening scene includes a dance number that introduces the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks. There is a split between the two gangs and this is evident in their actions towards one another. Racism appears in the different music styles and the dance moves for the Jets and the Sharks. The Jets music was more upbeat, while the Shark’s music was harsher.
Within The Ballad Of Rudolph Reed, the poem implies that racial discrimination frequently befalls many African Americans and they try desperately to overcome these stereotypes to no avail. Racial violence occurs towards African Americans and they try desperately to protect themselves from that. The violence often leads they to becoming complete opposites of themselves when falling into desperation to protect themselves and others. Racist views and actions trap many African Americans in a vicious cycle of failing to fight the battle against discrimination despite standing their ground. Many confrontations against slavery ultimately lead to death and many would rather let their spirit to die inside than their lives.
The plot needs to be analyzed initially to point out the likenesses and dissimilarities. The fight scene amid the opposing parties is in both the works. While the West Side Story depicts the fight of the Sharks and the Jets, Romeo and Juliet portray the fight of the two rival families, Capulet and Montague. Another significant similarity is the protagonists’ falling in love. Romeo and Juliet fall in love as they meet for the first time at a ball of Capulet and Tony and Maria of West Side Story fall in love during a dance party.
Othello 's own brainstorm when he describes murderous green eyed monster as innate in the married man married woman relationship which suggests the wife as the exclusive possession of the husband and is thus at betting odds with the man status wherein one California n never know another individual's inmost persuasion and desires: "O curse word of marriage observance! That we can call these delicate beasts ours and not their appetite!" Several Recent critics have sought to explain Othello's behavior as arising from his insecurity as a blackness in a racialist White person society. However, I would contend that the child's play forcefully combats racism which suggests blacks and egg white s as essentially different precisely by its presentation of Othello as not at all different from any white husband. The maturation of his jealousy, the words of prop possession
Some critics felt that the issue of blacks in America addresses an obsessive national concern, especially concerning the ambiguity of relations between whites, on one hand, and blacks or Indians, on the other. Therefore it was considered that the main theme of American Gothic is slavery. Tennessee Williams, born in 1911 and grew up in the American South, came to see it as being hopelessly corrupted by racism. His plays offer a devastating portrait of the prejudices of his native region. Even if racism is not often met in his works, at least compared with other major Southern writers, we can observe Williams's strong social conscience.
As presented in the film “Zoot Suit Riot,” the young Zoot Suits disclosed a division between two youth groups: the gangs of African Americans, and Mexican youths who created a portion of the zoot-suit subculture, and the white sailors and Marine servicemen stationed along the Pacific coast. The riots had racial and social differences but the primary issue seems to have been patriotism and attitudes towards the war. Nonetheless, the white servicemen abused their power and through that riot, they shred light on racial discrimination and that what the art work at the Great Wall represents. The boots standing above the person of color demonstrates the power and authority of the law, it has the power to strip away the little that a person has, and cares less if they hurt or cause damage. The Zoot Suit just like the rest of the Chicanos were struggling to represent themselves in this racist society whether it was through fashion as a way of political
First, the presidents’ examples of frugality are to clear our hearts. Secondly, most Americans were the immigrants for the sake of adapting their lives to a new land, they make a difference in the country. Lastly, the Americans are compassionate, and their sense of generosity reflects the frugal trait. Therefore, I become to believe that frugality is a part of the philosophy of the Americans. First, the presidents made the differences in their country because they not only saved the Americans, but also the United States of America became prosperous.
In an article by The Washington Post named “Indian Immigrants Make It Obvious That The American Dream Is ALive and Well”, “There are no absolute barriers to upward social mobility in America; that is why immigrants thrive...”(Wadhwa). Upon arriving first generation immigrants often don’t start with anything more than their clothes on their backs. Although this may seem like a bad thing at first, this actually is an advantage to them. They don’t inherit the debts of older generations and if they work hard enough can only go up the economic ladder. While climbing the economic ladder, most aspiring Americans have a high regard for family values.

This is proven with the multitudes wish for leveling, or the balancing of the riches, the rich appealing to the middle class, and the growth of the colonies. The settlers want for an equal distribution of wealth shows as one of the main reasons they supported Bacon was because of his “hopes of levelling” (Zinn 1). Many of these people were poor whites, and wanted the wealth to be spread out equally, rather than just to the rich. Additionally, the rich appeal to the middle class to gain their support. For example, James Otis had the ability to appeal to the middle class by “attacking the Troy Thomas Hutchinson” (Zinn 1).
