Nobody from Nowhere” (130). The working class sees this statement as an example of why the American Dream is not worth the effort. They can build themselves up from nothing in order to be acknowledged by by the world, but they will never be seen as equals in the upper class. This situation erodes the promise of the American Dream for the working class and diminishes their belief in the self-made man and social mobility. The Great Gatsby’s loss of faith in the self-made and social mobility is caused not by immigration but by Gatsby’s inability to transcend the barriers between social classes despite the achievement of the American Dream.
Since, it isn’t justified for America to give us this right of speech, when they knock us down for using it. The Black Lives Matter Movement is proof of this, they protest over and over but the government doesn’t want to take responsibility or change for the better of the community. As a community we need to see actions taking place, not only just words. I think they are right for opposing the dominant culture, since it is going to take a lot of work for America to socially change, and we have stick up for what we believe in or them would never been any change in America. America has become a better nation with time, protests and the power of a counter culture always existing to fight for equality, no matter the gender and race.
The reason why many Americans refuse to take these jobs is that they are low paying and tedious. They would rather do minimal amounts of work for higher pay in the comfort of an office space rather than pick fruits, packaging food, or work at a steel mill. To quote Dwoskins article “Why Americans Won 't do Dirty Jobs,” Dwoskin states “Americans won’t fill them, thus, Americans are too soft.” This may not be entirely true, but according to unemployment rates and desperate employers, it might
McIlvenna makes a crucial point when she tells that Great Britain saw Georgia as a failure due to the colonists challenging the class system. It was due to self-interested parties that convinced England that Georgia was done for. These were parties were ones that encouraged such things as slavery. However, the settlers didn’t want slaves at all, they were strongly opposed to it. For example,
Anthem: A Bland Society Anthem. The society where everyone is held down by rules, regulations, and people who think freedom and individuality will be the downfall of society. There are a few of these reasons, but they are all not good ones. The main purpose is that they do not want to recreate the unmentionable times, which I think to believe that is either the World War II era, or in an alternate universe, there was another war much after that, maybe in our time or even later in the future. Another reason is that they do not want someone to be different than that of someone else.
Thomas Paine feel like that there is no reason to not start a revolution as Britain does not has the right to control America and their continent as it would be too much to tolerate and would be out of the circle of convenience. He shows that eventually the US would eventually get tired of being govern by someone who is far across the world and who are also ignorant in the American issues. He states “if they cannot conquer us, they cannot govern us.” Also, he treats freedom as a fugitive who needs a place to live, but no one is willing to take it in their asylums of government. Only people take in governments of monarchy and dictatorship. Thomas Paine believes that democracy is what the people want and need to have a good government.
Critical Race Theory takes the opposite approach to the American Dream and forces lawmakers to look from the bottom. Look at the American Nightmare. Acknowledge that people of color were excluded from creating and voting on American laws, even though they were considered part of American society; while also realizing that they are still excluded
Both of the claims justify the way how not only the Cherokee got mistreated and betrayed, but other tribes as well. Also the white Americans caused controversy by making the situation worse in America today for Indians. Now the Cherokee tribe not being treated equally, it has affected Indians in today 's world. A conflict that has been affecting the Indians due to their low employment opportunities that tend to be limited for them because of their past history. Cherokees, low unemployment figures are high and increasing overtime.
However, just like how John Proctor failed to persuade the judges of the court and the people of Salem, LGB people are demonized for their beliefs and are almost hopeless in being accepted and valued. Nonheterosexuality should be “stud[ied] without fear”, but because of “political restraint” (What), room for understanding and accepting in the media is lost. While Salem, conquered by Puritan beliefs and traditions cannot accept those who deviate from the norm, today’s society cannot accept or understand LGB people, and therefore LGB
Rhetorical Analysis: Race and Society Race in society has been an extremely controversial topic for many years. Racial tensions were high in the past because of that people's feelings and beliefs have been passed down causing racial tensions to continue into today. A white officer can't even defend himself against someone of a different race because they will get nation wide attention for it. Prejudice still exists today causing people to feeling uncomfortable around different racial groups. Today many people believe that racial differences have made many strides to bettering society but others believe that much more work needs to be done.Even though laws have been passed to create equality within our nation, there are still factors that don’t help those specific laws of equality play into their full effect.
