To understand the complexity and influence of Kanye West, one must grasp the context of the music industry at his arrival. Hip hop has become one of the most popular forms of music of the 21st century. Unfortunately, rapping was not always considered this beloved genre of music like it is today. In the 80s and 90s, hip hop had an extremely ardent fan base because many critics considered the genre as “gangsta” or “hood” music. This criticism emerged, “with the mainstream success of gangsta rap, where drugs, violence, and misogyny became more prominent” (Holly).
Hyper-masculinity is defined as exaggerated male stereotypical behavior, displayed in one’s strength, aggression, and sexuality and is often directed towards women (Moshner and Sirkin, 1984). Hyper-masculinity is manifested in typical rap lyrics and videos through profane discussions or depictions concerning drugs, violence, guns, alcohol, jewelry, travelling excursions, materialism, money, and domination of women through blatant and subtle sexual descriptions. The videos that the average rap video depicts all of these concepts and more. The over-saturation and a re-iteration of a man’s dominance over women perpetuates sexism and degradation. Hyper-sexuality is defined as an oversexed obsession with the act of sex, which includes sexual activities and sexual fantasies (Rinehart and McCabe, 1997).
This is typically untrue of the western world, and is the reason that many deny its existence. However, the actual definition concerns the collective issues, cultural ingraining, and disparagement of rape and sexual assault. Many people may dismiss the term “rape culture,” saying that it is solely a term that has been invented by extremists and misandrists in order to make men look bad, or to make it seem like rape and sexual assault happen more often than they do. Unfortunately, it is a fairly common occurrence: “One in five women has been the victim of rape or an attempted rape in their lifetime. Nearly half of women have experienced sexual violence other than rape in their lifetime” (National Statistics, 1).
Once again, a similarity arises from a contrast—despite the obvious social restrictions—where Bender relates to Brian, in the effect that a family protrudes on a child’s life and well-being. They are both products of the people who are supposed to guide them. This similarity echoes throughout the film, and becomes best seen when the group eats lunch during detention. Bender brings out no lunch, but Brian opens a bag packed with apple juice, a PB&J, and soup (seemingly packed by his mother). This list of items prompts Bender to make fun of Brian; hinting that Bender sees Brian as pampered.
With only one desire: to eat. I no longer thought of my father, or my mother… I would dream. But only about soup, an extra ration of soup” (Wiesel 113). Gregor’s parents become increasingly indifferent to him because of the change of him. “Earlier, when the door had been barred, they had all wanted to come in to him; now, when he had opened one door and when the others had obviously been opened during the day, no one came any more, and the keys were stuck in the locks on the outside” (Kafka 18).
The consumer said most of the items were “cute” but that some of the items were a bit too suggestive. The controversy and complaints have continued to grow for American Apparel. The company has continued to promote sexual advertisements and the graphics seem to get more racial as demonstrated in (Figure 17,
She works as janitor in a local burger shop. Her job helps her pay the bills. Moreover, Tammy’s son Matt , who is sixteen years old, dreams to improve his social economic status, therefore, he dress like high social class. Matt also made the comment in the movie that he is embarrassed by her mother because she always wears the same burger king uniform everyday and she never like to dress-up. I really did not like Matt approach towards his mom.
They curiously looked inside and found food. They pulled out the cheese and bread to give to the dogs and threw the two over ripe and rotten apples to the ground with disgust. They asked why the little packet was hidden so well and Annemarie’s answer was that they were no more hidden than the napkins. She did not know what to do next though so she ran a couple of ideas quickly through her head in a few seconds and came up with the idea to act like her stubborn sister Kirsti. She went on and on about how her Uncle Henrik would be furious at her because he did not have a lunch to eat at all and would be starving when he got
Stereotypes are something people hear all the time no matter where they are. When I was ten, I went to McDonalds with my family and when we were going to order, the cashier took one glance at us and told his Mexican coworker to take his place because he did not speak Spanish. The cashier figured that we did not speak English due to the darker color of our skin tone. Language barrier is one of the many stereotypes people assume about Mexicans because of their skin tone, as well as them being uneducated and people inferring them to be criminals. The effects of these stereotypes are disgraceful and ruthless.
For instance, in the movie, they have a short anecdote about Kevin Kowalcyk, a kid that died at the mere age of two and a half years old because of an E.coli outbreak with the meat in the burgers at the Jack in the Box restaurant, yet the health department officials didn’t do anything about it. This proves what the director is trying to show because it tells you about how really young children have died because the slaughterhouse workers aren’t paying enough attention to whether or not the meat is contaminated, which is costing lives, and nobody has cared enough to do anything about it. Besides being an anecdote, this is also an emotional appeal that proves Kenner’s statement as it makes you feel sad for Kevin and agree that people need to give more consideration to if the food they’re producing is actually good for you. In summary, Robert Kenner uses pathos to prove his outlook. To conclude, many of the most excellent artists, including Eric Schlosser, writer of Fast Food Nation, Mike Pollan, author of, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and Robert Kenner, producer of the film, Food, Inc., use ethos, pathos, and logos, to prove their viewpoints.
He also talks about his habit of fist fighting. In the movie York 's salvation came after a really bad day and a night of drinking he was struck by lightening on his way home from the bar. In reality his salvation came for two reasons the desire to make Gracie Williams his wife and his mother happy.3 It also didn 't happen through a bolt of lightening. York said later of this scene “A bolt of lightening was the nearest to such a thing that Hollywood could think up”4. The depiction of the turkey hunts and the shots for parts of the beef are true.
