Through male encounters with a male figure by their sides, known as a father, that only than youthful boys can turn into the genuine manly individual they were destined to turn into.

I can’t live one way in town and another way in my home” (Lee 367). Atticus is willing to put Jem on trial in order to teach his children that lies will only lead to disloyalty and deception. He does not want disloyalty to run through the family, so, when the time comes, he sets an example by telling the truth. No secrets or lies to hide from himself, his family, or the townspeople. Jones supports Atticus’s honest nature by saying that, “Reflection gives us humility, forces us to confront our own frailties and limitations; and compassion helps us love…”(Jones 152-153).

Shaw mentions in the beginning that the ‘place’ that blacks hold in society is suppose to be fixed and those who try to escape it will always die. When it came to Rudolph Reed, he knew he wanted to die. He wanted to fight and not stand back as his family was hurt. He knew the consequences of that choice and took them. Shaw explained that there was two ways to die, spiritually and physically.
He explains how this portrayal of images does not only show the horrendous acts that were going on during that time, but completely put into perspective the actions that Bruno 's father made. He’s been portrayed in such an innocent and loving manner, but he’s running such a horrendous place. It questions whether his father really shows compassion towards his children as he’s able to look past the genocide that he’s so willingly helping create. Harman is therefore successful as he’s getting his message across by portraying such images so vividly in the viewer’s head that it’s difficult to get rid of once the movie ends, making them conscious of the fact that these incidents happened

St. Clare tended to share his opinions on slavery, and Stowe used this character to show how many Southerners thought slavery to be an act of iniquity, but were too stubborn to try and change the ways of their society. Tom’s last owner, Simon Legree,
The South was a slave society, with nearly every aspect of life touched by the presence of a brutal institution rooted in the dehumanization of black people and the supremacy of white males. At the time of Celia’s trial, Southerners felt that this way of life was being threatened by heated politics playing out both in Kansas and at home. Her fate was guided by the decisions and reactions of Southerners living in this uncertain atmosphere. These decisions, though they are what logically led to Celia’s death, were inevitably and inseparably connected to the institution of slavery. In a sense, the individual decisions were merely a means to an end, an end decided by the fact that Celia lived in a slave society that couldn’t afford the cost of her justice.

is as guilty as the day is long. Yes his image was a loving, wonderful, self aware father, but do we really know the real O.J.? Can you 100% say, and back up, that O.J. was not capable of doing this to the “women he loved” and the innocent friend that lost her life along with Nicole? I can not say that.
