This affected David a lot when Rosie died as she was the only person left in his life. The discrimination of the castle people ruined this family because Jack thought that his son marrying a castle women “is dirtying the family name” (245). Even after Jack and Rosie became close David disliked his father and didn’t want to be around him (246). This shows how even when the discrimination is gone it stays inside people and they cannot forgive the people that
It is mainly about his relationship with his father and how after his father passed away he realized how his anger and rage, which was depicted as a disease, was legitimate. His father was a paranoid, bitter old man who had a very profound hatred of white people. He used to warn his son that they were “not to be trusted.” Baldwin never understood his father’s hatred for white people; he did not understand that because his father was of the first generation of African Americans to be free that he faced a lot of racism growing up. They never understood why this bitter old man hated the white race so much; all they knew was that his hatred consumed him so much that in the end it was what killed him. Only after his move to New Jersey did Baldwin begin to understand why his father’s hatred towards the whites was so great.
Tom is an African American man in the small town that was accused of raping a white woman. He was accused of this crime by Mayella Ewell who comes from a family that faces prejudice themselves by the rest of the town because they are viewed as “trash” themselves. Since Tom is black, he is automatically viewed by the town as guilty. Tom is viewed as trash by the people of Maycomb, particularly Mrs. Dubose. In Chapter 11, Mrs. Dubose tells Jem and Scout that their “father’s no better than the niggers and trash he works for!” (Lee 135) This quote shows that Mrs. Dubose views Tom , especially him being black, as trash.
In the book, he is assigned to defend a black man in court who is accused of raping a white woman. When Atticus’s daughter, Scout, talks about what happened at school, she says that “...the school buzzed with talk about him [Atticus] defending Tom Robinson, none of which was complimentary” (Lee 92). The racist people of Maycomb, Alabama were all annoyed and horrified at Atticus for taking the case. Many people at the time believed that all black men were criminals. The townspeople did not feel like Atticus should be defending a negro.
Lear’s madness was addressed in the very first scene and then continued to pop up quite frequently as the story went on. Kent called Lear out for being mad when he banished his daughter Cordelia after she wouldn’t tell him how much she loved him (1.1.146). He realized that Lear was being extremely unreasonable and was making this rash decision without really stopping to think about what he was doing. This is not a strange thing for Lear, he has been known to make rash decision because he is so short-tempered. In fact, after Kent tried to calm him down and have him reflect on what he was doing, Lear got angry and banished Kent as well, who was his right hand man.
The way her cruel and sinister stepdad treats her and her family. One of the things he does is he verbally abuses Eleanor with hurtful words he writes on her diary or notebook everyday until one day he threatened her and went too far. It made her so frightened that she had to move to her uncle’s because she didn't know what to do. And because of that, she had to leave Park too. The thing is that her mom can't divorce or do anything to him because she doesn't know where she could get money and how she’s going to make a living by herself or even what Richie would do to her.
Fear was rooted at the basis of his masculine ideals, as his father, Unoka, the main source of his terror, was a failure in life, taking no title and often being described as a woman. Being constantly teased, Okonkwo lived his life, abhorring his father, hating everything he loved. Eventually, in Okonkwo’s life of hatred, he hit a road bump, taking his actions too far, as he beat his wife in the week of peace. “Inwardly, he was repentant. But he was not the man to go about telling his
On miss Ratched 's ward it is very apparent that she runs every aspect of the men and that they are to scared to stand up to her because they do not believe that they deserve to stand up to her. These men in the ward have been pushed down so much in their lifetime whether from family or community people for there disorders and choices that they no longer care about their image or the way the should be treated. Take Mr.Harding for example the other men have heard him state many times “that his wife 's ample bosom at times gives him a feeling of inferiority.” (Pg. 44 paragraph 4). At the time when this book is staged men were supposed to feel like they were taking care if the wife but harding has never felt that way, and has been
But his father refused to accept the all, and condemned him severely without any room for negotiation, because Neal’s rebellion, pale and weak forced him to be driven into a corner. The tears of despair flowed out from Neal’s eyes implying that a person without his own dream is even worse than the dead, so he put up the revolver. Shots rang out, and the shadow of death soon besieged both the society and school. The consequence of Keating was almost conspicuous, that is: Leave. When he packed up his luggage and went out of the gate, Todd couldn’t stand it any longer, he has never been so strong.
