“A White Man’s Burden” by Rudyard Kipling because Nathan and Kipling both believe they are doing what they have to do. They feel like it is their duty to “take care” of the uncivilized people of under developed countries, but in reality the native people don’t want their help. If he really wants to help people and spread God’s word with good intentions he would take notes from his foil, Brother Fowles. Brother Fowles basically does everything right that Nathan does wrong. For example, unlike with Nathan the native people actually like Brother Fowles and his family.
Chief Red Jacket explains, “We understand that your religion is written in a book; if it was intended for us as well as you, why has not the Great Spirit given it to us, and not only to us, but why did he not give to our forefathers the knowledge of that book, with the means of understanding it rightly? We only know what you tell us about it. How shall we know when to believe, being so often deceived by the white people?” In analysis, he wants the Americans to see how illogical it is to force their religion upon the Native Americans. Chief Red Jacket describes, “Brother, you say there is but one way to worship and serve the Great Spirit; if there is but one religion, why do you white people differ so much about it? Why not all agree, as you can all read the book?” Therefore, he questions the diverse kinds of
In China Mahayana the nirvana aspect of Buddhism was greatly appealing to some people but the idea of a foreign religion dominating in China made some people hate Buddhism. However, in this mix of people there were some people who were in the middle and felt neutral about Buddhism and its beliefs. There was a similar reaction in Rome with Christianity and its beliefs. Some people, mostly the lower class and Jews, found Christianity a way of escape and some even thought of as safety. On the other hand some people hated the beliefs of Christianity because it went against their norms and old traditions.
Explaining that a group of “ about 350 million people” (14) are worried for their lives surely is enough to invoke sympathy within the reader. He also includes a quote from Robert Clinton, which reads, “the involuntary exploitation of our annexation… or the involuntary expansion” (14). By including this quote, Echo-Hawk catches the reader’s eye because the idea “involuntary exploitation” on behalf of the European settlers is an absurd idea because expansion was obviously voluntary, which leads the reader to sympathize with the Natives rather than a group that lies in a way to justify its actions. He also uses the pathos appeal when he talks about “white man’s burden” (16) and when he describes how Spaniards were doing their noble duty of colonizing, but spoke Spanish while telling the Natives that they were
The Pilgrims were also religiously intolerant of other religions, and believed that theirs were the correct religion. The factors. geography and religion, both helped shape the southern, and Plymouth colonies differently, The Southern colonies had a longer growing season which meant more cash crops, and the Plymouth colonies had a short growing season so that meant farms for only the family. These were how the colonies were
Naluagmiu meant white person; the Eskimo dictionary didn't list it as a dirty word but everyone knew better”(51). When Cutuk was in his adolescence he was bullied for being different, but as he becomes more mature he realized he does not want to be unvaried like the rest of civilization, but instead he wants to unique. Later Cutuk has a conversation with Lance about money, “You don't want money? You just want money so people who like money will like you. He shouted laughter.
Another aspect from his life is that he greatly promoted rights for Native Americans and wrote out against the stereotypes that white societies have about Native Americans. While going through Custer Died for Your Sins, some of Deloria’s biases are that not only does he discuss the different myths that white people have about Native Americans. Deloria also talks about how many of those ideas about Native Americans still continue today, especially among whites who interact with Indians for the first time. Another bias he includes is that despite all of the treaties done for the Indians they have not constantly helped all of tribes and have sometimes made things

She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
However, she may have been right to not view Christianity and the people that came with it, white people, as something that would save her. Even though throughout many of his stories Apess’ looks at Christianity as a great thing he does not always view the white people, who spread its content, in a favorable light. “I commenced exhorting them to flee the wrath to come— (151).” While many would use this as another example of Apess trying to convert the Native Americans, it could be taken as him warning the tribe to flee before the white people take everything. While not stated in this edition, a later edition was published and Apess describes the tribe as follows: “I visited the Pequot Indians, a small remnant left from the massacre of the whites, who are now lingering in a miserable condition upon the banks of the river Thames, apparently unpitied and unknown (151).” This statement in itself says that Apess did not consider white people as even remotely good people, he was angry with them for what they had done to his people up to that point and what they continued to do even after the Native Americans started trying to fight
The comedy shows Two and a Half Men and How I Met Your Mother are other shows who have been called out on their lack of diversity. However, since these are more popular and adored shows people and critics are less likely to make a big deal about it. The television industry is also known for having nonwhite characters casted to be played by white people. In the new movie Pan the Native American
