Not only that, but the Jews were also forced to wear a star to show their separation from the rest of society. Plus, when the Jews were forced into ghettos, they were so far alienated that they believed that living in these horrible living conditions was a good thing. (Wiesel 10-11). Similarly, the alienation of specific groups of people in the Cambodian genocide was extremely harsh. Pol Pot, a leader in the Cambodian genocide that is similar to Hitler in the Holocaust, filled the people with hate of those “tainted with non-Khmer traits,” such as having an education, speaking a different tongue, or having a minority background (Bergin 33-34).
Eva Smith is the most important character in ‘An Inspector Calls’ in my opinion. She is used as a tool by Priestley, to show us how the capitalists treat others and how they don’t care about others and how they think they have power over others in the low working class. “if they didn 't get rid of that girl, I 'd never go near the place again” Sheila Birling sacked Eva Smith form her second job because she was ‘laughing at her’ this is showing us that the upper class do whatever they want because of their wealth, class and privileges. Even though Eva Smith was never on the stage play; she is still important because a working class woman like her cant do anything to the upperclass families; yet she made the Birling family (an upperclass family) feel bad and guilty about their actions and take responsibility for corrupting her life. Eva Smith is the perfect example to show the audience that you might not be affected by this but someone might be and you will be the blame for it.
Characters from The Outsiders experience injustice and fight against it. Greasers experience injustice in behalf of the fact that they are poor. This is confirmed with: “Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped, or someone will come by and scream ‘Greaser!’ at them…”(Hinton 2). Greasers are judged for being poor, but the rich kids aren’t judged when they break the law for fun, when the greasers can barely obtain enough money to eat.
Throughout the entirety of Cannery Row, Mack is viewed as a vagrant con artist with justified intentions. He also has problems with lying and swindling but most often always feels guilty for doing so. Mack is similar to a common day stereotype of homeless in a sense that he smooth talks his way into getting what he wants and will most like always waste any money earned on small luxuries. He is also similar to society’s view due to his lack of a home or necessary supplies to survive. It is because of this that Mack, as well as real world ‘bums’ resort to theft and swindling.
While the duke and the dauphin and lying about their identity, they are gaining money through this. The readers know they don’t deserve that money. It also evokes aggravation because the people of that town and the Wilks girls are gullible enough to believe that the duke and the dauphin are Peter Wilks’ brother with no proof to prove that. This is used to satirize how people easily believed anything with no proof and did not question. In Death of a Salesman, after many years of struggling to pay for all the bills, Willy decides to commit suicide because he wanted the insurance money to be given to Biff, his son but at his funeral, the readers find out: "I made the last payment on the house today.
Both Daisy and Gatsby struggle to obtain wealth, often which lead to abusive situations and illegal activity. The characteristics of the time such as obsession and the desire for wealth characterize the situations that many of the characters face in their every day
This is ironic because he was once a man that lived within the corruption, and when he got reintroduced to it, he was shocked by how wrong it was. Secondly, The narrator realizes that even though the people are doing bad things to get what they want, it 's mainly because they have no opportunity to make real money due to the government. “The systems that could lift the majority out of poverty are undercut at every turn. Precisely because everyone takes a shortcut, nothing works and, for this reason, the only way to get anything done is to take another shortcut.” The higher up does what is easier for them to make money.
Bill and Sam were not prepared or committed to their situation which led to awkward or hysterical situations. “I…….. of all nerve’ but i looked at bill who had the most dumb look on any animal. ‘One more night and he’ll drive me crazy.’” The irony of the kidnappers having to pay the ransom amuses the readers. ‘I…….
Film makers continue to misrepresent African-Americans in movies depicting them as characters, such as the brash women, domestic workers, thugs, and the “magical negro”. The brash African American women is depicted as being rude and having an attitude towards people in her immediate surrounding. The brash women in depicted as being loud mouth and not caring for what other people might think of her. These images are bad since people who do not live in close to the African-American community could stereotype and assume that all African American women act with a brash personality. Surprisingly, many of the films that includes the brash stereotype is found in African American film maker Tyler Perry.
