Like a rat placed inside a maze to be examined by a scientist, the cast members of the reality T.V show “Bad Girls Club” are placed in a house to be examined as a psychological experiment. The popular reality T.V show “Bad Girls Club” is a show that follows the lives of seven self-proclaimed “bad girls” as they live in a house together. The supposed purpose of this show is to not only watch these bad-mannered women fight, bicker, and argue, but it is also to watch these women mature and step away from their “bad girl” personifications. In order to frame the show of its experimental ways, the show even includes a life coach that is supposed to “help” the women grow out of their “bad girl” ways. But what really is the true objective behind the
In Patricia Smith's’ What It’s Like to be a Black Girl (for Those of You Who Aren’t), she eliminates the use of stanzas in her poem, which makes it appear as a miniature short story to the reader. Without the stanzas, the reader is encouraged to read the poem straight through, only breaking where there is punctuation. Her powerful words keep the reader attentive and truly capture the essence of her life. She begins her poem with the line “First of all”, the F in first being the only capitalized letter in the poem. She does not use other transition words like then, next or second, which one would expect, however, with each line, she takes the reader as she transitions from childhood to womanhood for a young black girl.
She had to act and dress older than all her friends. Her life in every way was different than all the other girls she knew, because she stood out so much. Due to her being a Puerto Rican woman, she was always labeled and stereotyped. Cofer said Latin women

She expresses this and gives Cassie her first taste of the real world by accepting that colored girls, like Cassie, are “nigra[s]” (ROTHMC 25). Along with this, Miss Crocker hits both Cassie and her little brother, Little Man, only because they refused to use the tattered, racist books in class “she swung the switch five more times” “‘s-see what they called us,’ I said, afraid she had not seen. ‘That’s what you are,’ she [Miss Crocker] said coldly.” (ROTHMC 26 and 29).
She makes it seem like she always has to get her way. Upon first glance it would not be easy to figure out why she acts like this, but it is actually quite simple to understand why her behavior and tone are like this. Jig does
In the painting, Kiss Me and You’ll kiss the ‘Lasses, Lily Martin Spencer used a woman holding a spoon and the title to demonstrate the beginning of challenging gender roles which relates to John Steinbeck’s cynical tone about gender roles and stereotyping in The Grapes of Wrath, thus proving that despite how far society seems to have come when it comes to gender equality, people still endure discrimination and stereotypical pressures today because of the sex they were born into. The woman in the picture is smiling at whoever is painting her or whoever is looking at her. The person, most likely a man, is tempted to kiss her but she warns, with the title, that if he does so she’ll hit him with the spoon she has in her hands. Also it’s ironic that the lady who
She employs many literary devices that support her specific claim in this passage as well as she provides many clear examples of how stereotypes have shaped young girls’ lives throughout the book. Through these examples she succeeds to use them as evidence so the audience does not conform to

The film Boyz N the Hood is a story about life in South Central Los Angeles. The film was wrote and directed by John Singleton in 1991. I chose this movie because of its relevance to the course and how it reflects pop culture in that time period. The opening line in the movie “one out of every twenty-one Black American males will be murdered in their lifetime” really catches the audience attention (Nicolaides & Singleton, 1991). This movie goes into detail and shows the life of three young males living in the hood of Los Angeles battling a life surrounded by drugs, violence, and questions of race. This film is a great image of how American pop culture was consumed in the early 90s.
