The reader cannot help but to speculate upon the reasons why he continued to care for her despite her differences. He must have known Miss Emily quite well, and must have had at least some idea of the crime that she had committed with the stench of the house and all. Still his loyalty remained, and as the townspeople observed after Homer’s disappearance, “The Negro man went in and out with the market basket, but the front door remained closed” (1107). It is easy to imagine that Tobe stuck around out of fear for his life. The story does not say why Miss Emily’s father died and it was clear that he had not treated her well and had denied her a relationship with any of the young men.
Franklin was not the aggressor however he also did not resort to violence in means of self defense because he wanted to prove that he could stand his ground. The Long Walk Home had several characters that dealt with racism in the same means that Malcolm X did, both movies showed black men that were seen as criminals to white men because of their skin color. Each movie emphasized the harassment white people acted upon black people. In order for the characters in The Long Walk Home to adjust to their struggles, they found faith or friendship to keep them strong. For Odessa she continually went to church and listened to the preacher who inspired her to not ride the bus and continue walking home every day after work, no matter how much her feet hurt.
Growing up in Fairhope, Alabama I have witnessed prejudice for most of my life. However, when I was young child in school I did not have a clear understanding of what it meant to be prejudice and to stereotype others. It was not until I reached middle school that I became more aware of minorities and the judgement that surrounded the different ethnic races. My hometown of Fairhope is located in lower Alabama on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. It is a predominantly white community consisting of middle and upper class families.
No, gentlemen, this skull here holds no plans” ( 7 ). These are the words from his lawyer that his supposed to be defending him in court. In the text he is calling Jefferson an idiot and saying he can’t think because he is African-American and they aren’t very smart people. Has his lawyer he shouldn’t have been saying that about African-American but the justice system in 1950s were pretty biased towards African-Americans or if it was anyone who is were colored.

Rosa Parks, someone who is famously known for taking a stand, had said when talking about the bus incident “I thought of Emmett Till and I just couldn’t go back” (Lisa Vox). The image of Till’s battered body casket became a rallying cry for African Americans who joined the civil rights movement to ensure that something like this would never happen again. In conclusion, Emmett Till’s death death impacted the civil rights movement in a huge way. It all started when he entered that grocery store in Money Mississippi. When Carolyn Bryant’s husband found out what happened he immediately wanted vengeance.
According to Bryan 2012, people should not be killed for crimes they have done, but crimes should be the ones eliminated. Mistreating people because they are black is losing American identity, which is the Americans’ capacity of every person to contribute to a community, to a perspective that is hopeful. On the other side, if black people were not controlled, there would be more crimes in the United States, which is a reason why they should be taken
We see this when Tom Robinson is killed, “Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed.” We see Scout’s character come of age from a naïve innocent narrator to a mature and courageous young woman who now understands why Atticus does not want her to get infected by the “Maycomb disease.” Through this first person narrative Lee hoped to discreetly portray African American characters in an expressive yet childlike, unbiased manner to leave the reader free to connect emotionally with the dilemma and decide for themself about the racial prejudices and the real historic conflicts
When I first started Collinwood High School, they didn’t have my transcript over from Shaw so for a month I had to take ninth grade classes.

My parents names were Jerry, and Mallie McGriff Robinson(Linge Timeline). In addition to that, it was still tough living in America as a African American, nothing has changed in those 7 years of my teen life. I would always get picked on at school for the color of my skin, which is just insane, and absurd. When I got older, I signed up to go in the military,but I broke my ankle, which delayed my deployment in the military. However, I had to wait until I get released from the military.
