Not only that, but Abraham questions the divine providence and asserts that God caused the war for God," now wills to remove, He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense [slavery] came." Therefore, Abraham is saying that the nation is being punished for its national sin of slavery. Abraham also states that because of the war, the nation has become divided, for there are men from both the North and South who used to," read the same Bible and pray to the same God" fighting each other in a battle that neither wants to be in. Nevertheless, the speech 's main purpose is the cause of the civil war as well as the myriad of reasons why the people should unite after the civil war. The

Twain 's novel is a realistic representation of the cruelty of slavery and racism at the time. Twain wrote Huckleberry Finn in the late 1870s and early 1880s to reflect upon a time before the Civil War when slavery was conspicuous to someone looking from the outside in. However, those whom were involved in this society were unable to decipher the injustices at the time. Huckleberry was an exception in a few ways because he gets to know a slave, Jim, and befriends him. When he befriends Jim, he begins to see Jim differently than the community.
In the text he says, "I wish you had commended the Negro sit inners and demonstrators of Birmingham for their sublime courage, their willingness to suffer and their amazing discipline in the midst of great provocation.

Racism is still alive whether you go down south or up the street. As an African American I can see the way a person looks at you are thinking that you are lower than them just because of an increased amount of pigment in your skin. Even blacks take it too far like the black lives matter and all the police problems. All lives matter from white to black because we are God’s children and a created equal in His eyes and he sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for everyone it is our choice to accept the gift not our skin color. Yes, some police officers are not going to like black people it does not mean all police officers hate blacks.
The main character, Marlow, in Joseph Conrad’s 1910 novel The Heart of Darkness begins his journey into Africa skeptical of what might occur, but naive to the true horrors that were in stake for the young man. Marlow’s detailed descriptions of the sights and torturous actions towards the natives he witnesses along his journey lead to many literary critics to deem Conrad a racist. One author notorious for calling Joseph Conrad out on his racist remarks is Chinua Achebe who gained fame from his article “An Image of Africa: Racism in Conrad’s Heart of Darkness”. Achebe’s article professes that almost everything within Conrad’s novel is an act of pure racism. This, however, is not the case, as Conrad was just telling the truth of what occurred within Africa during the time of European colonization.
“The Weaver Bird” contains a speaker who also explains his attitude towards the European colonization with a few disparate views. As a matter of fact, his tone is bitter as he describes how the Europeans destroyed their way of life and diminished their culture: “We watched the building of the nest (4)” . His tone remains bitter throughout the poem, however, towards the end, the tone transitions to hope. The speaker explains how the Africans were determined not to lose their culture, but they were unable to prevent it: “We look for new homes every day / For new altars we strive to build (15-16)”. Adding more, the speaker implies that even though the Africans were foreigners in their own country, they are searching for new homes and seeking to rebuild their “Africa” and “The Weaver Bird” have numerous contrasting features that make the poem different to each other.
In the above passage, Azaro illustrates the anger of the compound people through his Father as Black Tyger who drinks ogogoro and expresses his feeling against opponents or the pretenders. His father wants to join the army, through which he wants to take revenge of his opponents. Okri has deployed the narrative techniques meticulously. It is prominent feature of magic realism but Okri has discreetly used it for portraying the African reality with the help of certain dreams which keeps away magic realism in TFR. Black Tyger 's philosophical and prophetic speech is also a good piece of example of narrative technique.
As Celaena started to become familiar with him she noticed he had empathy and unlike his father he had a humane nature that Celaena loved. For example, after Dorian’s father ordered his soldiers to kill 500 Eyllwe rebels he said “ I heard about those butchered rebels, and I- I’m ashamed… He swallowed, his eyes stinging. ‘You won’t believe me. But… I don’t want to be apart of that. I can’t call myself a man when I allow my father to encourage such unforgivable atrocities.’”(Maas,2012,pg.260) This conveys the theme because he is known to be brutal but in fact he is the complete opposite.
Bianca Hammaker Professor Page AMH 2010 25 November 2016 Paper Two (Abolition) Abolitionists preached to the public people on how slavery was unjustified, cruel, immoral, and inhumane. A widely accepted thought was to degrade colored people to that of the thinking capacity of apes and to treat them as animals. Most of the states were slave-holding at this time in history with slaves being the ones under the direction of the owners. Buyers (whites) of slaves sought for cheap labor and gave no credibility to anything the slaves accomplished. Whites had slaves work their mines and farms, the two most important jobs at the time.
