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”.
A prime example is the Tom Robinson case, which was a blatant display of racism. Jem and Scout saw their “father take the gun and walk out into the middle of the street,” he then killed Tim, and the threat of his rabies was gone (127). The rabies were like racism. Racism, at the time, was something that ruined Maycomb and changed it. The people were less open and more stuck on this one idea of race, while everyone outside of Maycomb were fine.
Stephen King’s “The Running Man” is a very tough book to summarise. There are many things that happen throughout it, but due to the nature of the situation, in the end everything around Ben Richards gets destroyed, causing many things that may seem to be key events to have very little impact on the ending of the story. The basic story, removing all of these elements, is that a man named Ben Richards is living an impoverished life in some random town in the U.S., and signs up for a death game called The Running Man to make a whole bunch of money so he can get his daughter’s pneumonia treated. The whole idea of The Running Man is that a man goes on the run for 30 days from the authorities and a group of people called the hunters who are chasing
At the start of the movie Gerry Bertier despised the different skinned people, he didn’t even talk to them or look at them, when they were about to board the bus, Gerry went up to coach Boone with ray behind him and was telling him that he was going to play the position that he wanted to play, and was also telling him how to run the team. This part of the movie is important because it shows how Gerry thought about Coach Boone. His attitude started to change when they were halfway through their camp training when peedee got tackled and then they started pushing each (not in an aggressive way) other saying left side, strong side, left side, strong side. This was an important part of the movie because it shows that they were finally getting along and their relationship was just starting. Because of Gerry and Julius bonding the whole team came together because Julius was the leader of the black people and
To show that Stacey is really courageous he did a series of courageous acts.

The media named this event as Bloody Sunday because of the marchers were chased and barbarically attacked by the troopers and police by clubs and tear gas. It triggered the outrage all over the nation. And by the call of Doctor Martin Luther King, many people included white and colors from many of the states came to join another march that led by himself on March 9th. The march was returned peacefully. However, on the night of the same day, James Reeb, a white minister that came from another state to join Doctor King march, was attacked to death.
Walter just wants to try to be equal to white people, but racism keeps pushing him down. It won’t let him get a good job or house, be able to have a car, or allow him to live the way he wants to live. Because of all these stressors, it forces Walter to make a risky business decision that costs him most of his father’s life insurance money. Racism caused Walter to risk every dollar he owned and he lost it all. Later, he almost lost his own dignity by pleading with Mr. Lindner for his money back, but Mama saved him from doing it.
In Mi Familia, the mother of the family is deported without good cause by the U.S. government based on nothing more than blind American prejudice, signifying the racial tension that exists between white and Latino communities and to which Chicanos must adapt as they establish livelihoods in America. This theme is also presented symbolically throughout the film by the white owl, which appears when Chu Cho’s mother crosses the river and almost drowns herself and her son, and also just before he is killed by the police. The owl represents the chokehold that fate has on Chu Cho’s life from the time he was born—unfortunately symbolizing the burden of poverty, domestic abuse, crime, or narcotic involvement that some in the Chicano community bring with them from Mexico into the United States. As remarked by the narrator, “Chu Cho was living on borrowed time”—his life fully belongs to the unfortunate destiny that harasses many Chicano communities within the United States (Mi Familia). At the end of the film, the father remarks to his son Jimmy: ‘the corn is strong but so are the weeds,” metaphorically referring to the failure of two of his sons—Chu Cho and Jimmy—to succeed in life because of how they succumbed to lives of crime and failed to live up to his expectations.

He knows that the school doesn’t want him to be there anymore, his roommate almost beat him unconscious, and his parents will only be disappointed when they know that he has been expelled from yet another school. For Holden, it seems like there is no one else to turn to, except his younger sister Phoebe who he can’t see unless he goes home. Teenagers all across America feel this same sort of detachment from the rest of society. Only one thing going wrong could cause the rest of our worlds to collapse. Holden ended up trying to live on the streets when he ran out of money, and as the story progressed, he dug himself into a larger hole of loneliness.

This outraged the community causing a crowd of about angry demonstrators to to march around City Hall, bang on the windows, and even start car fires. They were shouting about having Mayor Dianne Feinstein fired from her job and shouting in remembrance of Harvey Milk. Multiple people were injured during this riot. After the verdict, people such as District Attorney Joseph Freitas Jr. were apologizing for the jury’s decisions. The jury could not be sure whether Whites mental state influenced his actions or if he just decided to shoot them on his own.
The death Eugene Williams, one of the majors point of the Chicago Race Riots of 1919, it was one of the things that actually started to make the majority of African-Americans act. Eugene was hit and killed by a thrown rock by a white male on the breakwater, even after his identity was established he wasn’t arrested. Even to make matters worse one of the males accompanying him was arrested instead in the chaos. Of course, many people fought but the majority of the race moved out of the south, the southern states passed new constitutions and laws that dehumanized African-Americans and made them into slaves, they even had to flee from the Ku Klux Klan. This led to The Great Migration, which changed Chicago politically and culturally.
“They burned down white own tire company that burned on for days and nights, and all you could see was smoke from it all the way in uptown Miami.” (Floyd). “The actions that the National guard did was arrest the rioters.” (Donnie). The Impact it had on the rioters was that the national guard and police arrested 600 people during the riot. “When President Jim Carey came into town when he was on the middle of the speech the rioters were about to start a riot and harm the president”(Donnie). These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop.
