Disproportions in housing, health care, employment, education—and myriad other cultural and societal conditions—can be traced directly to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation that suffered under the brutal legacy of slavery [BO1].

There is a specific idea about what antisemitism looks like. Violence, white supremacy, concentration camps, shouting of the fourteen words. This type of antisemitism has existed for thousands of years from the First Crusade to the Holocaust to the Charlottesville Riots.

By creating the inversion, the audience is forced to read slower, and therefore think about the sentence longer. In the same paragraph, Dillard also creates a long sentence that uses multiple semicolons. She writes, “They...straightened out; they did barrel rolls, and straightened out;” in order to represent how continues and fast paced Rahm’s performance was.

When David Lloyd became prime minister, he used DORA to create rules that would control the population and stop them from going about their business as usual. Being a Liberal, Lloyd George created a more equalitarian post-war
This is another aspect that over the years has become parallel with our modern society as widespread chaos spread across the internet as people scrambled to their screens to see the result of the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal to revoke Net Neutrality.

The author made this biography so that when you read it you read it you go "really I never knew that" or "I thought this happened because of this reason not because of that". For example on page 14 it talks about how when Thomas (Abraham 's father) was trying to relocate the family from Kentucky he claimed to have bought five other farms but were taken away because he never paid for them. That 's how they ended up in Indiana because he had the money to pay for a little house in the woods. This did actually surprise me because I thought that Abraham grew up in his home cabin with his mom and dad in Kentucky. Really he lived in Indiana with his dad
