Handlin used statistical evidence to help enhance the low wages of the average immigrant “But it was significant that the most desirable forms of labor for municipalities in 1900 brought only two dollars a day” (Handlin 69). The invisible boundary that immigrants had to face or the alienation of coming to America was explained by Handlin. The housing arrangements for immigrants separated immigrants and religion played a large part in alienation. Handlin used various forms of rhetoric, including pathos, ethos, and logos in his novel to establish his credibility as a writer. Handlin uses vivid language when speaking of the housing arrangements of immigrants and the emotional appeal from imagery of life in the settlement is critical.
A van from the knackers comes to take Boxer away two days after his lung collapses. This goes to show how as soon as Boxer was of no use to the pigs, he gets sold, again for their benefit. They showed no sympathy for him, despite Boxer’s blind loyalty and him being the best worker of the farm. Reduced rations, working with an injury and ultimately dying in the end demonstrates the conditions Boxer had to go through just because of the simple reason of not standing up for himself. Boxer lets his pride takeover, leading him to disregard his own well-being.
After reading the short story,“The RockPile”, by James Baldwin, it is found that a religious family lives in Harlem, and the father of the family enforces unfair penalties on his son John.

According to Robert E. McGlone, it says “On the night of May 24, Brown, with four of his sons and two other men, rode to the homes of three pro-slavery settlers near Dutch Henry’s crossing on Pottawatomie of all pro-slavery men living on it .” According to Robert E. McGlone John Brown crossed over people that owned land who were pro-slavery and destroyed the land because they did not think that slavery was evil and wrong. This demonstrates how much John Brown hated slavery and what he would do to get rid of slavery. According to Jed Hotchkiss, it says “ On the 10th after appointing a committee with full power to fill all the executive, legislative, judicial and military officers named in the constitution adopted, this convention adjourned, sine die, and brown took his Kansas party to Ohio, where he disbanded them subject to call, but sending his Capt. John E.
He also taught the villagers kung fu, and brought “bundles of food with him when he return[ed]” (Boxers 54). In the end, Red Lantern was killed by Imperial troops. Red Lantern didn’t deserve what happened to him and justice was not found because he was a good person, and he was punished, not rewarded like he should have been. Another example of someone who did not receive justice was Mei-Wen. Mei-Wen believed that “China [is] but a people and their stories” (Boxers 312).
To begin, Bruce Lee broke racial barriers in the world of acting. He helped Americans realize that Chinese people are more than their facial features. According to Block, “As the first Asian international action star, he smashed the Western stereotype of the Chinese coolie, and provided reason for a whole generation of young Asians, as well as other minorities, to be proud of their heritage.” Lee proved many racist stereotypes wrong and he gained a lot of respect from many cultures around the world. Being Chinese in America not too long after World War ll, people were still wary and thought of him as suspicious. However, after he died, Lee was admired for his acting skills and bravery.
The third example of this use of race is when workers in California begin to blame other races, such as the Chinese immigrants in California, for the failure of the gold rush. “To [the] white workingmen, post—gold rush California did not live up to its promise. Facing limited job opportunities and uncertain futures, white laborers looked both for solutions and scapegoats. Men in California came with high hopes; jobs proved scared and unrewarding; someone must be to blame” (Limerick 262). the Chinese were considered cheap, expendable, and replaceable, performing a necessary but unattractive form of labor, and so they were an easy target for the whites.
“They called him "flat-nosed" because of Ali and Hassan's characteristic Hazara Mongoloid features. For years, that was all I knew about the Hazaras, that they were Mongol descendants, and that they looked a little like Chinese people.” (Hosseini 9) The author uses imagery to give a detailed description of the Hazara people and what they looked like. Amir tells of his childhood when he was around Hassan or Ali, how he would listen to everyone making rude remarks about Hassan and Ali and not doing anything about it because it would taint his and his father's reputation. He was embarrassed to call Hassan his friend so when his friends asked, Hassan was just the servant, not friend. He was scared of being looked down upon which made him regret the decisions he made later on, not accepting Hassan as a friend and mocking him constantly, not knowing that he would be the only constant loyal figure in his life.
He turns his business into a profitable factory. However, the Lorax emerges from the stump of the trees and disapproves the felling of the trees, complaining that the factory has polluted the air and the water. Once the last tree is chopped down, the factory closes and the Lorax leaves. Where he last stood is a small stump engraved with a single word: "UNLESS". The Once-ler ponders this message for a long time until a boy comes to him and he realises “UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
This country was supposed to be a place of freedom, yet we were stopping people from coming into this country, certain things such as the Chinese exclusion act of 1882, which was then followed by restriction on admitting criminal + mentally ill. Japanese unskilled workers were also restricted. In 1885 a law was passed prohibiting contracted labor workers. Along with push + pull factors; Religious persecution, poverty, overcrowding, political and religious freedom, economic opportunities in the great plains and industrial jobs in the cities. Slums were a way to describe urban life in the northern cities. Wealth flowed during the 18-1900’s but only to the upper class of society.
This cartoon expresses the fears about the impact of Chinese immigrant labor. It shows Chinese living in a very crowded space, eating rats; and American man coming home after work to a wife, children and normal household conditions. Thousands of unskilled Chinese laborers arrived during the California gold rush in the 1850s and mined for gold, worked in factories, became domestic servants, and many helped build railroads. By the 1870s Americans turned harshly towards the Chinese. By viewing the political cartoon, we can see that the Chinese workers aren’t at a higher “caste” or standard/class compared to the “Americans” therefore not worth a set wage.
Immigrants were confronted with just as much adversity as minorities and critics; like African Americans during the Great Migration (Document B), foreigners left what they knew best behind for better conditions. Refugees were also the victims of the Klu Klux Klan because they were not full-blooded Americans. The restrictions on the first amendment applied to the general populous (Document G), including aliens. They often took the blame for communist activity during the Palmer Raids, just as the union leaders of the country did. Clearly, immigrants did not flu under the radar during and just after the
But Lincoln’s death was not a limit for the railroad because the Americans looked to bright it to the West and the East for Sierra Nevada in California. Also talks about immigrants that were born in Ireland or elsewhere in Europe. They (immigrants) lured by the promises and high wages commanded by bosses. The problems increased, when the Chinese workers whom built the railroad that crossed the Sierra Nevada mountains in California had social conflicts with California and not only that. Furthermore they had conflicts in their relationship with their superior
In these communities they kept much of their culture from China, they didn’t need to speak English and were isolated from other communities. According the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Historian, “…as with most immigrant communities, many Chinese settled in their own neighborhoods, and tales spread of Chinatowns as places where large numbers of Chinese men congregated to visit prostitutes, smoke opium, or gamble.” (Chinese Immigration and the Chinese Exclusion Acts) Many people found the purported behavior to be objectionable and harmful to the moral fiber of America. Many of the Chinese immigrants who worked to complete the railroad system ended up in San Francisco. Where the Chinese community was steadily growing. “The formation of an urban Chinese community and the industrial development of the city paralleled each other.
