shows the readers that that vanity and lack of self-awareness can make some vulnerable and easily fall for the evilness of the world. Because Connie became vulnerable, she was easily persuaded by Arnold, who was portrayed as the Devil figure and the darkness that exists, to leave her the known safety of her home and to embark on the road to the unclear future. Oates’s story teaches the readers to be cautious of their surroundings and of the people that are unfamiliar to them that live in the same society. That is because even if someone appears to look a certain way they might have a mask that hides the true darkness and evilness that is in their body and
In Grant Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod states his belief that we seemingly “hate” the brightest kids in school partially because of some of the most “noted dropouts” in today’s society. Additionally, Penrod claims that the perceived hatred of intelligence in a high school setting is causing actual emotional harm to the children who are labeled as the “nerds” or “geeks”- thus, the classic “smart kids.” If entering just about any of the several thousand high schools around the country, they will hear choruses of “Did you actually study?’, “Why would you even bother studying- the game was on last night”, “Of course I didn’t study; I had football practice” or dozens of similar taunting phrases can be heard constantly
His argument clearly states that African Americans are playing more roles in Hollywood blockbusters as mentors, however many of these roles played by African Americans are not receiving the proper applause they should be receiving. Most of these amazing roles are not equal to those of other actors. Seitz is definitely right to bring up such a controversial cliché that most people do not see. Whether it is done on purpose or accidental, this issue deserves recognition and awareness to all our brothers and
I believe that social injustice in the view of both sides cause them to view each other in this bias; therefore, both sides would instinctively commit these actions in a hostile situation, but claim them as self defense. The argument that I will never agree on is her idea that “if
That the society in which he was raised is wrong. Equality sees this now, and knows that it should not be this way. That that is not a way to live. Ayn Rand has a very similar idea, which she displays in her short essay “How Does One Lead a Rational Life in an Irrational Society?”. You can infer from her essay that she does not agree with this lifestyle.

One thing that stood out the most to me was when a white commentator described our modern day society as “White is becoming the new black” because many people want to pass as black and that’s when they began to discuss Rachel Dolezal. Racheal Dolezal was a Spokane for the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) pretending to be black. In reference to the NAACP many whites feel like it’s an unfair advantage that African Americans can belong to a club or organization that caters to the specific needs of that particular
Also, the Civil Rights granted African Americans more legal rights. The Civil Rights succeeded by giving everybody the same chance to all be equal. There was a lot of success and the Civil Rights changed the world forever, but there is always room for improvement. There are still racist people in the world that will never stop being racist for a reason we will never know. People can make the world better by just getting over the past and learn to accept each other and treat each other
There is regret because Montag wants Mrs. Bowles to think about what she could have done or regret what she did to get to the point she is at. I think that Montag’s use of pathos and logos in the quote was excellent. Even though the result of the conversation was sad Montag made a strong point and stood for it.
