Peck tells us that the same discriminatory experiences that a person of color may face whether it be about their skin tone or their body size, she has probably experienced just about the same injustices given her own weight.

Their pride is what almost destroys the possible relationship between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, and causes both of the characters to make abrupt and impulsive choices. Although Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are both not vigilantes, they, like Oliver Queen from Arrow, let their feelings and first impressions dictate the choices they choose to make in an instant--choices that can determine their
Social realism has historically been a good decoder or barometer of a complex situation.
