The world is full of people from different walks of life; and all of them deserve to be shown respect. People crave acceptance and respect from their families, friends, colleagues, lovers and society as a whole; the way people feel perceived is at the very core of who we believe we are in life. Respect and acceptance from others is what helps people for their identities. Lee Abbott's story, "One of Star Wars, One of Doom", takes place in a high school setting where a shooting is being planned out and about to take place. Abbott illustrates to us through 4 characters: Mr. Frank DeWine, Ms. Leanne Petty and a duo nicknamed "Tango and Whisky" what happens when people feel conflicted with who they are inside and their desire to control others.

“There’s lots of traditional thinking buried deep within each story and the longer you spend thinking about it the more you learn about yourself, your people and the Indian way” (Wagamese, 1994, p.145). Reuniting with his family, discovering his heritage, connecting with community members, and learning the traditional teachings and practices have greatly impacted his sense of self, identity, and values toward community. It was foundational to his self-discovery and community connection that he had several people like his sister who were willing to share the family history and their ties to the community. To understand the nature, processes and experience of sense of community at any one time for a particular community it is necessary to have some appreciation of the community’s history (Pretty, 2006).

I found that like many colleges, Georgia Tech seems to value cultural diversity, the plethora of student diversity programs proves this. Due to my family 's involvement in the military, I have been exposed to a vast multitude of cultures and ideologies.

Such cultivated reapings include a honed sense adaptability, understandability, and respect. With a Japanese mother and German father, I seem to fit into the common depiction of the United States as a “Melting pot of cultures”.

Examining Chicana/os in Media through Gun Hill Road Latino and Latina representation in film and media is scant and when represented they usually fall into narrow categories. Latino men find themselves stereotyped as a highly sexualized Latin Lover, a treacherous criminal, or the violent macho (Alcalde, 2014). In Addition to being type-cast, Latinos are also more likely to be depicted as having a lower social status, lower intelligence and heavy accents (Schmader, Block, & Lickel, 2015) The film Gun Hill Road, presents at face value, the classic macho criminal, with the character Enrique. However, Enrique’s representation as a Latino male is called into question on multiple fronts: he has failed to be there for his family due to his being in prison and his “son” has adopted a female identity in his absence.
