Troy tries to use baseball metaphors to explain why he cheated on her. He said “I just might be able to steal second. Eighteen years I’ve been wanting to steal second” (70). In order to try to explain himself, Troy uses baseball analogies. This doesn’t do much for Troy’s defense, but it shows us what Troy does when he’s put in a corner.
I think that Robinson is a very strong man. He did not get mad or give them dirty Looks he just blew them off. “Some players were physically violent — he once received a 7-inch gash in his leg from an opponent who spiked him with his cleats — while others hurled verbal racial insults at him and his teammates” (Jessica Mcbirney 2017 ). “He knew Robinson would face racial discrimination and injustice if he joined the Major Leagues.
The manager then comments, “So he is superhuman?” Hyperbole is used in this scene, showing irrelevant inflation affecting the movie. Racism is then showed during the match, especially when teammates of White Dodger files a petition that doesn’t allow them to play with a black person. The racists are surprised by the victory of Robinson’s team, and Robinson is highly appreciated by the team owner, Rickey, and Durocher the team manager. Some fellow players such as Pee Wee acted by Lucas Black.
This shows exactly how poor and sad Mayella’s life is. Boo Radley, Tom Robinson, and Mayella Ewell can be considered mockingbirds in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. Boo and Tom were nice men with good intentions and Mayella was a product of her own environment. In summary, they were innocent of everything they were accused of

Profiling puts barriers between citizens of a different races because judging someone only by their race gives one a pre-fixed opinion, thus making it difficult to create diversity in a community full of racist people who have created negative images of people. Racial profiling can bring people down in both a financial and personal way which leads to more racial profiling because being affected in these ways encourages one to continue profiling others as they have anger building up which needs to be released. Supporters of racial profiling argue that the use of demographics, statistics, and, information to capture criminals is justified. Also, that if a group commits a crime, they should be stopped. However, critics of the practice argue that the idea of one group committing more crimes than other groups is just untrue, information also points to the idea that profiling is wrong, both legally and ethically.

A couple of our guys got on, but then I was up to bat. I was so excited. I got up there and decided that I was going to take the first pitch (not swing at it) to get my timing to make sure I get a hit. Ball one, I step out of the box taking another practice cut. I got back in the box and waited for the next one.

Overall racial profiling is a violation of are individual human rights and it also violates our 14th amendment. Police should stop using this method and use other methods to figure out criminal behavior. We live in a world where people are still simple minded and can’t get out of their old ways.

I mean, who else is going to make their 100th career homerun a grand-slam and pimp the hell out of it? And then hit another grand-slam a couple games later. No one except Bryce Harper, that’s who. Besides the home runs, and yes playing on the east coast helps, the fun side is what sets Harper apart.
