After leaving the reservation Rowdy hated Junior on and off the basketball court. When Rearden had a game against Wellpinit, the reservation high school, Rowdy didn't take it easy on Junior. After Junior got stitches during the first quarter after being hit with a quarter on his forehead Junior got tougher. In the third quarter Junior was back in the game. "I immediately stole a pass and drove for a lay up.
For instance, Junior had made the varsity basketball team for Reardan. He was considered their secret weapon. Then, for his first game he had to play against Wellpinit, his old school, and had to see all the people who were ashamed by him. Junior had said to himself during the game, “But, no, I couldn’t do that. I couldn’t foul him.
The Indian people of El Paso hated the idea of a statue of such a terrible man being displayed in their city, to them it was like celebrating Hitler, but the amount of money that had already gone into the project was so excessive there was no turning back. One American Indian artist in the community, Maurus Chino, was so disgusted with the idea he started to get the word out about who Oñate really was and the genocide he caused. Maurus Chino started sculpting feet to honor those who lost theirs in the past to Oñate and it also showed that the American Indians of El Paso, Texas were, “putting their foot down,” to the completion and erection of the statue. There were meetings and votes to decide what to do, they couldn’t have a statue paid for by the public’s money, that the public hated, but the amount of money put into the project outweighed the opinions of the public. The best solution to the problem with the statue I believe was renaming it so that it would not be known as The Equestrian instead of Don Juan de Oñate.
Muhammed Ali once said, “Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. “In the book A Raisin in the Sun, Beneatha, and Walter, are examples of how race affects the decisions the characters make when this book is examined through race theory First, Walter’s actions are examined through race theory because Walter wanted to open a liquor store while ruth wanted to rent a house in a white neighborhood. But Walter instead took off to Willy Harris when the whole Younger family knew this was a bad idea and Walter gave Willy everything he had and instead of putting that money away and investing it in the liquor store, Willy took off with the money and was never heard of again. When that happened Walter went into a stage where he had no self-respect in himself.
A teacher assumes that Victor passed out because he is drunk. The teacher says “I know about all these Indian kids. They start drinking real young.” Victor is discriminated against because of a stereotype that all Native Americans drink. Victor was later diagnosed with diabetes. Victor responds to the teacher’s stereotype by saying “Sharing dark skin doesn’t necessarily make two men brothers.” Victor is expressing that just because someone looks like you or share the same ethnic group as you, does not mean they will be a support
In 1975 Ali threw his gold medal into the Ohio river for not being served at a "whites only" restaurant near by ("Be like Muhammed Ali"). Even though Ali was a great fighter and was well respected he got racist comments on the streets and threats from white men. This angered Ali to the point where he dropped everything he was doing and made a Anti-racism organization to stop racist people. Muhammed Ali was also heroic for going after world peace and fighting terrorism. Muhammed Ali quoted "Service to others is the rent you pay for your house on earth" ("Muhammed Ali").
Under apartheid everyone that wasn’t white got separated and treated less than people who were white, The white minority ruled over the others who outnumbered them significantly. There were a lot of pictures taken during the Apartheid and showed a lot of depressing images, like kids caring a dying classmate after a peaceful riot of kids were having a sit in, the police force opened fire on them and killed many. This is important because the world started to see how bad things were getting and those images became a martyr to everyone to help. In the book they tried to avoid this by making everyone happy with Big Brother before killing them. Winston in the book decided that he would before he died to think “Down with Big Bother” as one final act of defiance of Big Brother and may become a martyr so the proles would finally have an uprising and be free from big brothers rule(1984).
"There 's nothing more sickening to me than a low-grade white man who 'll take advantage of a Negro 's ignorance. Don 't fool yourselves—it 's all adding up and one of these days we 're going to pay the bill for it. I hope it 's not in you children 's time." (23.40) Atticus is putting his own race down because he knows that almost every white man in Maycomb is racist. He doesn 't want his kids to
White people feel like everything is their property. Prejudice means preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. One prejudice thing is how they say that Atticus don’t like guns, but somehow he the best shooter in Maycomb. The kid’s at Scout school were prejudice against her father calling him a “nigger lover.” Then Scout became prejudice against Atticus because she found out that he was protecting a negro. Scout also thought that Atticus didn’t do anything as an old man, she thought Atticus was lame and that he older than most of the parents.
One of the biggest highlighted event in the movie would be when the white people made separate bathrooms for the black people in their houses. People were disgusted about the idea of having to use the same toilet as a black person because of the “diseases” they carry and wanted seperate bathrooms. This was also just another way that white people to keep blacks under them by making them feel inferior. We also have the case of the segregated buses where the white sit in the front and black sit in the back. At this point of the movie a young black man had gotten shot and the driver boarded the bus to kick off all the black people just by saying “colored people off”.
They filed a lawsuit on the whitewater high school district because when they confronted the principle he had nothing more to say but "it 's all just a joke". None of the 7 families seen this as a laughing matter so all students were given escorts to class and interviewed on Fox News.
