The evidence of violence suggests that there was a series of racial discord that preceded this outburst of violent actions. In her article, “Performing Personal Narrative: Anna Deveare Smith's ‘Fires in the Mirror,’” Myers claims that: the tragic events of August 20, 1991, which began when a car from the motorcade of the Hasidic Grand Rebbe jumped the sidewalk and pinned two black children against a window grate, severely injuring seven-year-old, Angela Cato, and killing her cousin Gavin, also seven” (52). This information is helpful for my research because in “Fires in the Mirror,” Deveare-Smith cleverly portrays nineteen original portraits. What I could tell about each of the people Devear-Smith portrayed is the way she describes the biases that exist between Blacks and whites. She lets us know that this is very important, because the word, “bias” is the Rising Action that results in the Climax.

Whenever Quentin and Margo were little, they found a dead man in a pseudo vision, so now Quentin thinks Margo is covering up in one, and abandoning him pieces of information while in the motion picture, Margo and Quentin do locate the dead man, however the scene and the ensuing examination Margo does into his demise, is more about how she considers, with no notice of pseudo dreams.

Geoffrey Canada does an excellent job of bringing his readers to the streets of the South Bronx and making them understand the culture and code of growing up in a poor, New York City neighborhood in the ‘50s and ‘60s. In his book, Fist, Stick, Knife, Gun, Canada details, through his own childhood experiences, the progression of violence in poverty plagued neighborhoods across America over the last 50 years. From learning to be “brave” by being forced to fight his best friend on a sidewalk at six-years-old, to staring down an enraged, knife wielding, “outsider” with nothing to defend himself but nerve, Canada explains the nightmare of fear that tens of thousands of children live through every day growing up in poor neighborhoods. The book

He recalls an experience of him at his own job, “I was writing for with a deadline story in hand, I was mistaken for a burglar.” (Staples 190). He then refers to research referencing another black reporter that was put in a far worse situation than him, “Mistaking the reporter for the killer, police officers hauled him from his car at gunpoint and but for his press credentials would probably have tried to book him.” Although the overall story has a bit of a melancholy feel to it, the author ends it on bright note by mentioning one of his solutions to public situations by whistling classical pieces, “Virtually everybody seems to sense that a mugger wouldn’t be warbling bright, sunny selections from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. It is my equivalent of the cowbell that hikers wear when they know they are in bear
"The Pedestrian" uncovers the disengagement of its hero, Leonard Mead, and how that seclusion causes him to be withdrawn with the present. Leonard is a man who strolls through betrayed boulevards consistently, manufacturing lives of individuals who are left in their homes sitting in front of the TV. As he strolls, Leonard uncovers through his contemplations that nobody else strolls, and everybody is by all accounts possessed by sitting in front of the TV and not connecting with other individuals. The contention emerges when Leonard is halted by an un-kept an eye on squad car that requests to know who he is, the thing that he does, and why he is strolling. In the wake of accepting unacceptable answers, the auto remands Leonard to the Psychiatric Ward for Regressive Tendencies where he will probably be dealt with to absorb into society.
A feeling of anticipation danced through me, as I opened the UPS package delivery of ReShonda Tate Billingsley’s soon to be release book “Mama’s Boy.” I am a fan of Billingsley’s from way back. I immediately read the back cover detailing a quick synopsis to see what delightful circumstances her characters Gloria, Elton, Kay, Phillip and Jamal; we know what touches one family members carries as a ripple effect touching others. Gloria, a Black mother, is living with a mother’s worse fear, your only child, a son (Jamal), is accused of the fatal shooting of a white police officer. Not in just any city but in Jasper, Texas. The location and the climate between law enforcement; between Black and Whites is strained.
Staples comes to this conclusion from his own personal stories of people thinking he was a robber or mugger. Right from the start he sets the tone by speaking of his “first victim” and her reaction to him walking on the street. Staples explains that when people see black men like himself they quickly jump to conclusions about their character. He does not blame the people for these instances, however it makes him feel uncomfortable. Staples explains that due to the color of his skin he was once mistaken for a burglar when he went into work late one night.
Racial and ethnicity discrimination in the justice system have been around since the beginning of this country against “Negroid” . Writing this research paper brings me back to the first book I ever read; “The Emmett Till Story;” which should be a reminder how awful our justice system can be. The problem we are having today in America is that Emmett Till’s story is still going on in 2017. The story goes like this per emmetttillmurder.com “While visiting family in Money, Mississippi, 14-year-old Emmett Till, an African American from Chicago, is brutally murdered for flirting with a white woman four days earlier.” Now this is we their system have fail, and continued to nose-dive the Negroid around in America. With all the evidence at hands, and witnesses like Moses’ Wright on September 23, the all-white jury deliberated for less than an hour before issuing a verdict of “not guilty,”
A friend of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, the first of the victims to disappear, says she got an odd call a few days after the 25-year-old vanished in 2007. “ said she was at a whorehouse in Queens,” Sara Karnes tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands now. “I told him she would never go for that, because she was independent. He goes, ‘Well, that’s where I saw her.’ And he described her to a T to me.” Karnes, who passed her information on to the police, says the man she spoke to didn’t have an accent. “He definitely isn’t from New York, Boston or Maine, because those are
