As he watches his loved ones get murdered by the creature he created, he realizes that playing God is a dangerous game. One could argue that Victor starts off with these negative traits but then develops Justine’s traits like selflessness, bravery, and acceptance. While I do think he achieves these feelings as he progresses, I believe he only scratches the surface of what it means to truly be selfless or brave.

What are the causes of somebody looking at different cultures negatively? What issues can this type of thinking cause and what can we do to minimize it in today’s society? We will try to answer these questions by analyzing the movie “American History X.” “American History X” is a movie directed by Tony Kaye and it was released in 1998. It is about Derek Vineyard who went to prison for 3 years after killing two black people who tried to break into his car.

In Curley’s wife’s case, she was being blamed for something solely for the reason of her being a woman. Technically speaking, the real reason Candy, George, and Lennie's plan got called off was because Lennie killed Curley’s wife, and George did not think it was possible to go without him. However, Candy takes his anger out of Curley’s wife just because she is the person that Lennie killed. Even though she is dead, he shows her no mercy. She is stilled called names.

Many people spread rumors about Boo Radley, when in fact, none knew a thing about him. People thought he was a maniac, essentially “killing” him.
