However, when Lennie came to Crooks, he was very careful and defensive towards Lennie because of the thought that Lennie would also be like the other workers and discriminate him. He is scared if people come to his door because they will make a fool out of him and he doesn’t want to be more isolated and he originally is. Additionally, he doesn’t want to show how he is isolated as well. Crooks knows that because he is black and everyone treats him unfairly, he cannot express his emotions. When Lennie came to George, “It
(Ch.16, Pg.168) Mr. Raymond acted as if he was drunk so he that he wouldn't need to explain to anyone his love for a black woman. The alcohol, he said, gave the community of Maycomb a reason to say, he didn't realize what he was doing. These kind of relations were completely unheard of during this time. Aunt Alexandra demonstrates discrimination, even against her own race, when she refused to allow Scout to have Walter Cunningham over for
No thought of the future. Just run blind the first chance he saw” (Lee 322). The fact that Scout writes, that Tom was just a typical negro man, show that Tom symbolizes a mockingbird because just from being that minority color, in his time, people thought of him differently, not as an individual but a group. Finally when Tom was blamed for raping Mayella, even thought everyone knew the truth, and when he did something to help her out out of the goodness of his heart, but because he was of different status and race backfires, Toms status as a symbolic mockingbird becomes
Unlike Mayella, Bob despises negroes. He constantly calls negroes the “N” word and harassed both Tom and his wife. If it were not for the color of their skin, he would never have done this. Another difference between the two characters is that Bob stays bitter towards the people of Maycomb after the trial, but Mayella does not. The audience knows that Mayella does not stay bitter, as it is never said that she was or that she acted on it at all.
Twain uses irony because Pap does not know why the black professor is so much better than him and has freedom, even though Pap drinks and ridicules the government so much. Not only that but Pap does not have a good education, which also adds to why he is ironic, since he does not make an effort to acknowledge himself in the things he gets angry about. Along with that, Twain uses satire to criticize Huck in this case. After being reconnected with Jim, Huck lied about being lost, but Jim finds out that Huck is lying because of the wreckage that was left in front of the raft. Twain is criticizing whites because Huck does not think that Jim, who was a slave, has feelings; Huck only realized that Jim was scared that he had lost
He doesn 't care if he’s protecting someone of color or anyone else’s opinions because in the story he was protecting Tom Robinson an African American man. “ ‘The main one is, if I didn 't I couldn 't hold up my head in town, I couldn 't represent this county in the legislature, I couldn 't even tell you or Jem not to do something again. […] “ (9.16-21). Mayella Ewell said that Tom had raped her, even though Atticus knew he had little chance of winning the trial he still continued with it. Mayella’s dad was mad at some of the events that happened during the trial because Atticus had chosen to represent Tom and certain questions that he had asked Mayella.
Henry lives out the maxim, “Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind,” throughout the whole play, specifically during a scene with Sam and another scene with Deacon Ball. In the scene with Sam, Henry refuses to pay his taxes as an act against conformity and supporting the war, this eventually results to him ending up going to jail. In addition to his act against conformity as a means of not paying his taxes, he also follows his own belief by teaching the way he wants to and questioning if God is an atheist. Again as a result of his beliefs, he ends up getting in trouble by Deacon Ball. At the end of the day, the way Henry lives his life is considered sacred because despite knowing that there will be consequences to his actions, he still follows through with them due to the fact does not care what others think of how he lives his life, he seeks change and is not afraid to act out his beliefs in order to achieve
Not an old Uncle, but a strong young Negro man. No code mattered to her before she broke it, but it came crashing down on her afterwards," (pg. 208). Atticus helped Tom Robinson even though his life and the lives of his children were threatened and he was able to get the judge to consider letting Tom go free. Atticus is treated poorly because the actions he chooses to take go against the cultural norms of his society.
In the end, he has words of the wiser to leave the readers stunned and inspired. Ponyboy goes through the first stage of the hero 's journey as shown when he claims he is different from his family and friends and he has good grades which its stereotypical for people of his status not to have good grades. Ponyboy is set apart from the rest of the greasers because he likes to watch movies and books he describes his brothers as “never cracks a book” and “ works to hard to be interested in a story” he also states he isn 't like the other greasers because “ nobody in our gang digs movies and books the way I do”
“‘You go on get outta my room. I ain’t wanted in the bunk house, and you ain’t wanted in my room.’ ‘Why ain’t you wanted?’ Lennie asked. ‘Cause I‘m black’” (Steinbeck 34). Crooks being restricted from the bunk house insinuates that he is treated much differently by isolating him to a separate world. Crooks is only “tolerated because [he is] considered useful” (Cox).
This is not good for Kansas business, as businesses and people move away, Brownback’s plan will only continue to dwindle. It does not portray Kansas as a successful or admirable state to live in either, likely preventing people from potentially moving here. Brownback’s true misunderstanding and inability to acknowledge his flaws is seen by a direct quote from Brownback himself in which he states “Unemployment is low and Kansas sports teams are winning. What’s not to like?” (Shelly). He ignores the bigger issues and brushes off what he could really say about the current state of Kansas.
Despite detailing the unfair treatment of baseball players at the words of the Reserve Clause, he never clarifies exactly how it is unconstitutional. He even mentions at several points where he talked to a lawyer friend about the case, as well as the executive board of the Players Association (130-131), but he doesn’t go into his specific legal arguments. While no one can argue for the Reserve Clause in terms of morality, if the clause doesn’t technically violate any laws in the Constitution, then the case is probably a lost cause. He closes out the article by trying to show the unconstitutionality of the clause using an analogy of an accountant in the same position (Flood 132), and if he had done the same thing while outlining exact violations of the Constitution in the process, this could have been a great article. As it is, it’s a very compelling thinkpiece that falls short with actual
I believe that Rufus is an alternation of his father he still sees slaves as more than a piece of property with only a couple of exceptions. For example when Dana told him that Alice doesn 't love him, but he refused to take no as an answer which showed that he didn 't really care about the way she felt or thought of him. Furthermore, he also received some of his father 's temper or anger problems. Throughout the book there been moments where Rufus would suddenly get angry and become demanding, for instance when Rufus demanded Dana to get up form her chair but lucky he claimed down before he could do anything irrational. He also sold slaves like his father and punished them when he had too.
Equality has the right to change his mind about the law because it isn 't a far law to everybody. It 's ironic that Ayn Rand called equality 7-2521 because he actually never really finds equality. From the being, he never understood why he was different and why he always got in trouble. He changes his mind about how society is wrong because at the end he learns in self-rights, much more technology, and the meaning of life should be. When equality was assigned with street sweeper he figured it was from his sins. "
All them teams the same”(Wilson !852). This scene tells us that Troy believes all the sports teams are racist and give players no chance at playing. Also, Troy just tries to make his son share his beliefs so that he can “avoid the pain of rejection that he himself experienced decades earlier”(Saunders 1). Troy’s belief that black people have no chance of playing sports is exactly why he refuses to sign Cory’s permission slip to play
