She drives the readers to reflect upon their own experiences on the night of
This portrays her as someone who judges by appearance because according to her, judgment is based on the outside. Having a fake laughter shows this is what she wants people to see her as, and appearances only matters rather than personality. Finally, when Myrtles, says "[Myrtle is] going to give [Mrs. McKee] this dress as soon as [Myrtle is] through with it; [Myrtle has] got to get another one tomorrow," it shows how Myrtle describes her judgement. She wears fancy clothes in order to look classy, which she is not, hoping people would judge her based on what she shows. The way she wants people to judge her, is how she judges others, through their appearances and not their heart.
As a matter of fact, Tea Cake empowers Janie and allows her to make her own decisions. This quote takes place during a conversation in which Janie reveals her plans to marry Tea Cake. With this in mind, it is significant because it demonstrates how Janie has finally broken free of the control of others and is now making decisions for herself. She isn’t chasing after wealth, as her grandmother desired, but love, what her heart desires. Notably, she is initiating a relationship with Tea Cake of her own volition.
The Outsiders make the readers think about if it is right to judge people because of social class, their family and how they look. The further you get into the book the more you think of the hardships of people judging you. There are multiple ways people judge you that are shown in the book such as family/friends and social class/ income. This reminds the reader about the civil rights movement, which is around the same time as when the book takes place. At the end of the book you get the message that being prejudiced is not the right thing.

Today, people all over the world feel like they have to act like someone they are not in order for them to be accepted by their peers. We all are guilty of repressing certain parts of ourselves because we are too afraid of how society will react and judge us for being our own person. As Stevenson has shown throughout his story, Dr Jekyll had been living this way his entire life. He repeatedly experiences all of these wants and desires but decides not act on them because of his worries of how he will be perceived by the community. Therefore, Stevenson conveys the message that it's easy for people to get into the bad habit of not being their selves to the extent where they could turn into an entirely different person that they will never be able to
Most people do not enjoy talking about sensitive topics because they feel uncomfortable, so it is amazing how someone would write a play discussing one of the most sensitive topics, which is racism. I would think, many people would stay away from watching a play that could cause them to feel awkward. However, I was surprised to find out that this play is very popular, and this play was even created into a movie. My favorite scene of Spinning Into Butter was ending because the characters were openly honest, and the only way to end racism is to talk about the issue. Furthermore, this play is relevant in everyone's life, so it easily makes a connection with the audience.
The characters throughout the play shows that they felt they couldn't do something a white person could do just because they are black and get treated differently. But if something is unfair and you stand up for what you want, then you will get what you want. Race plays a big part in this play because if the Youngers weren't black, they most likely wouldn't have experienced the things they went through just because of the color of their skin. The story would be different because of something small like that. Following your dreams is important no matter what your race is because if it unfair or something that you want then you should stand up for it like what the Youngers did.
This leads him to his acceptance of his African American invisibility. The narrator implants in his head that he has to follow the white man in order to be someone in society and in order to be noticed. But due to the consistent change of his surrounding he can't fit in and is always at complete loss of who he actually is. This affects the work as a whole because it illustrates how the black man continues to struggle in society due to racial prejudice and societal
The ninth line is a question without a question mark, referring to the women waiting for someone to give her something, asking for anyone, the change of the attitude. The next line is having high expectation for some person just met to give her a limousine that is expensive, asking her self or other people it is possible. Then the next line is herself highly doubt it, already knows as if is daily she will receive the same things no surprise since is the same gift she knows what she gonna get. The last line is one perfect rose at the end, but feel appreciated that the small things still counts as a token of their
