Twain used him and his environmental background to connect racism to the relationship between Huck and Jim. Jim was a slave but that does but “nigger” is the correct term to describe him even though the author portrays it in this manner. The relationship between these two characters grew very deep with the progression of the novel but so did the understanding racial differences between the two. In chapter 14, Huck says, “Well, he was right; he was most always right; he had an uncommon level head, for a nigger” (Twain 176). Although this may appear to be a compliment, I felt that the positive aspect of this statement was taken away when Huck lacks the understanding of how rude it is to refer to Jim as some “nigger”.
William Gladstone base his argument, once again, on morality. The Empire should spread and defend the interest of humanity, such as “the hope of freedom” (l.26), “honour and justice” (l.33-34). Although he previously defended slavery in his youth, due to his father’s lands, we can only surmise that the following sentence “[...] it was to England that the eyes of the oppressed were always turned” (l.27) was a reference to the abolition of slavery decades ago, as the popular opinion had turned against slavery. But the sentence is vague enough for the audience to make its own interpretation, which can make it even more powerful than if a precise example had been given. In this speech, the aim was to act in favour of the slaughtered Christian Bulgarians in the Ottoman Empire, but this notion can be applied to Gladstone's entire policy.
On the contrary, hostile sexism is having negative, unfavorable notions and behave accordingly against women (Glick and Fiske, 1997). In their Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (ASI) to measure people’s sexist attitudes, Glick and Fiske (1996) exemplified some items: “Men should sacrifice to provide for women” for benevolent sexism and “Most women interpret innocent remarks as sexist” for hostile sexism. According to them, these two type of statement, together, claim sexism but in different ways, in different kind of thinking. It is suggested that benevolent sexism is significant to deal with because it is like white man’s burden. According to story, white man has a duty given by God to enlighten and to develop the world.
Dionysus’s character, both in regards to the audience and the other characters in the play, clearly appears emasculate. He’s walking this very thin line between man and woman that he’s perceived to do as a Greek God, and the onlooker recognizes that. Euripides portrayal of Dionysus’s emasculated presence and divine control as changing the women from the obedient housewife to the wild woman-creatures that are a danger to Pentheus’s society ultimately signals to the audience that feminine individuals ought to be feared. Pentheus declares that Dionysus “corrupts our women with a new disease, and thus infects our bed” (6). Throughout the play, Dionysus’s actions and power uniquely continue to plight Thebes; he’s not a hero, he’s not some amazing force of empowerment, and he’s not looking out for the best interest of the women he has possessed.
King was an unrealistically good man. King spent a majority of his life as a minister and even received a Nobel Peace Prize at the young age of 34. That’s not all he has on his mantel, King also boasts even more accolades such as a Bachelor of divinity degree from Crozer Theological Seminary, a Bachelor's degree in sociology from Morehouse College, and lastly a PhD in Theology from Boston University. King also held a firm belief in nonviolent protest, a method he borrowed from Gandhi. Throughout King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, He states that he wants to be where injustice is.

It is an instance of the devaluation of religious values done by a despotic ruler. Tendulkar show that power has made Nana so blind that he even breaks the ethos of cultural and religious values in using the girl for his carnal satisfaction. The episode has a naturalistic impact upon the audience. It is psychologically much patent also----a culmination of Nana’s desire to use Gauri as a sexual object. This episode has a far-reaching consequence.
Colonization used to be described as attempts to benefit the colonized country, but in Purple Hibiscus, it seems to bring about more harm than good.
