In Ralph Ellisons’ novel, “The Invisible Man”, the protagonist, whose name is never revealed, perceives himself to be invisible in a literal and figurative sense. The context of the novel focuses on a black man, who was forced to adapt to a white Western environment as he increasingly succumbs to the idea that he is invisible. There is a sense that his black skin makes him appear more visible but also erases him from the white Western environment. He perceives himself, in light of Franz Fanon’s “Black Skin White Masks” only through the eyes of the white Other. This idea of “double blindness” runs through the entire novel and displays the extent to which protagonist is blinded by his reality to the extent that he perceives himself as invisible.
In the third cartoon, its significance is andrew being surrounded by indians and holding two on them in his lap. I believe this depicted andrew 's relationship with the indians. There are no significant dates or numbers in this cartoon. There are no word or phrases in this cartoon, however the indians really stick out to me. Andrew and the indians are really expressing any emotions, but by him holding two of them in his lap is an expression an emotion of care or sympathy.
These ideas were expressed in his “Tabula Rasa Theory of Human Behavior”. In his writing, Locke says,”Let us then suppose the mind to be, as we say, white paper, void of all characters, without any ideas—How comes it to be furnished? Whence comes it by that vast store which the busy and boundless fancy of man has painted on it with an almost endless variety? Whence has it all the materials of reason and knowledge? To this I answer, in one word, from experience.”
Ultimately, it is these differences that give rise to ideas of cultural superiority including white supremacy. In Mandeville’s account of his travels, he describes the people he visits as uncivilized savages, in an effort to paint his native Western society as civilized. When properness is only described within the framework of Western society, it is not difficult to classify people of cultures that differ from the “default” Western culture as uncivilized savages. One recurring example of this is Mandeville’s use of nakedness. Mandeville notes how unusual it is that “the men and women go naked, and glory in it” (Mandeville 7) while those “of better breeding” (Mandeville 5) make attempts to conceal their bodies.
In the Chapter III (where Indians presented with greater frequency), Hawthorne first describes them as the savage outcasts on the background of righteous civilized Puritans: “…on the outskirts of the crowd,  an Indian, in his native grab, was standing  By the Indian 's side  stood a white man, clad in a strange disarray of civilized and savage costume” (69). However, as we can conclude from the chapter, the captivity of Chillingworth was not as “savage” as it should be. Indians had not killed or enslaved him, but more, brought him to Salem as the “companion”, not that much as the captive; taught him their “natural” medicine. And this herbal medicine from such uncivilized savages “had quite as large a share of his own confidence as the European pharmacopeia, which so many learned doctors had spent centuries in
When reading the story, one learns that the White family live in an isolated home in a very low populated area. When receiving a visitor, Sergeant Major Morris, they are informed of a trip he took to India. While, he was there he brought a souvenir back with him. The souvenir was a monkey’s paw that had been possessed to preform wishes of any kind, but only by men. As the White family was informed, they discover that what the Sergeant tells them about the monkey’s paw is that it is very dangerous and that it can lead to death.
Native American Literature The First American Literature was written by Native Americans. Literature of Native Americans begins with verbally transmit myths, legends, tales and lyrics. Before the first Europeans arrived, there was no literature found in print among the different spoken Indian languages and tribal cultures that existed in North America.

Although she said the exact same thing in the movie, I find the statement used very strangely in the context of the movie. It’s a 21st century movie were a number of people wear hats moreover Hamlet was never seen in the movie before that scene wearing a
It looks like an abandoned place for countless decades. Silence is what you hear when you walk alone the narrow path yet, in every little house, there is always that sweet laughter, that only us, from the same line of poverty, would understand. What could be worse than living in a place with no name? Our little place seems to be a pigment of someone’s imagination, a place that nobody knows. The provincial officials, all would wonder and would raise the same question, “Where is that?”“Does that belong here?”“Is that part of the province?”
One person in a room and a soft bed to sleep in. Iraq is a different story. I lived in a tent with 50 other guys. No bed, just a cot to sleep on. No carpet on the floors, or floors for that matter.
They speak the Nez Perce language or Niimiipuutímt, a Sahaptian language related to the several dialects of Sahaptin. The Sahaptian sub-family is one of the branches of the Plateau Penutian family.

They originally inhabited the area which they called Cadi. They were dependent on the harbor for providing their food. There was an estimate of 50-80 Cadigals. (Wikipedia, n.d.)
Within Fahrenheit 451, the setting given by Ray Bradbury was rather ambiguous and was only describe to take place within an advance 21th century society. The community itself was exemplify as a prodigious Utopian society where everyone was equal and jubilant. The houses were monotonous as one did not want to seem overly powerful or greater than the others, and the society was forbidden to read and learn. This was the city in which the protagonist, Guy Montag, grew up and worked as a firemen to burn those books. It was in this censored city that Guy met Clarisse who change his life with a simple question that itched its way upon his soul.
It talked about it how it had no running water, no ways of transportation on the island and has nothing to deal with mineral and oil rights. This makes is better for the Natives living in protest on the island because it is things that they already do not live with or have had issues with. This added to the issues with the Native American and the Americans. In the other document, events like the American Indian Movement in Washington D.C. and the movement at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. The event at Alcatraz helped lead to these movements and take it to a federal court to judge the issues at hand.
