One may argue that healthcare is too expensive and that food stamps have been taken away from many people. It is also extremely difficult to get a well-paying job in order to pay for housing, healthcare, and food. The lack of healthcare, food stamps, and well-paying jobs can result in people turning towards crime because of issues such as mental health, physical health, and employment options. One reason that people turn to crime is because of the lack of healthcare. Even when healthcare is available to people, a large portion of them are not able to
The wealthy people tend to be unwilling to live in poor neighborhoods. All of the rundown homes on Mango Street are occupied by poor people. This quote may also be interpreted in a way reflecting racism throughout the text. In many different vignettes people are treated poorly because of their race. Racism and this text effects Esperanza and everyone around her in a very negative way.
They called the makeshifts Hooverville’s. There were people that were experiencing was homeless, and they were living in boxes. The Urban Americans used lumber and meter to make their shelter (Shultz). African Americans suffer the most and it started before the depression. The strain became intense they were experiencing the economy at their lowest, business was becoming slower.
After Atticus leaves the courthouse in defeat, Scout comments, “It was Jem’s turn to cry. His face was streaked with angry tears as we made our way through the cheerful crowd” (Lee 284). This quote shows that everyone on the white side, the cheerful crowd, do not care the slightest about Tom. They only care that Tom is convicted because they think all African Americans are guilty no matter what. After Scout realizes that the white townspeople of Maycomb are biased, she better understands the people surrounding her.
The title, “Pride and Prejudice,” is the most attractive object to me, as explained in the book - “Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.” Thus, the book focuses on the personalities of the characters. In the book, Charles Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, has rented
His novels are constant best sellers. According to Gale Student Resources in Context (2008) readers and critics regard Sparks as “a master in the dramatic fiction genre,” and many consider him as one of the few authors who can write beautiful love stories. His stories are generally famous for being romantic and tender, and for having bittersweet endings (Gale Student Resources in Context, 2008). Sparks said “You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by.
From his perspective, the town should think him as a hero for saving Maycomb 's white women from a ‘dangerous’ black man. He would have thought that defending his daughter by going to court should raise his family 's stature. If he fails to gain more respect from the community, Bob may have feared about some talks in the black community about white woman making a play for a married black man. Mayella would have been persuaded by Bob or she was maybe forced to believe so. Unfortunately, all of Ewell 's plans backfire.
The main character of the novel, The Bluest Eye, who is Pecola Breedlove, loves Shirley Temple and she believes that beauty is being white and that she is ugly. Pecola move back in with her family, with her father who is a drunk, her mother is distant, and they usually fight with each other. Pecola has a brother names Sammy who often runs away from home. Pecola believes that if she is gifted with blue eyes, she will be accepted by the society and that everything that is being done and said to her would eventually stop. She experienced a lot of racial oppression and receives a confirmation of her own sense of ugliness.
Finally, another major issue involved with homelessness is the safety of the populations of homeless individuals. Accomodation for the masses is a major issue when one is confronted with the issue of homelessness. Where are all of these people meant to stay, if not the streets? One answer comes in shelters, but the current shelters available in most cities are often lackluster and not the best places to stay. “The women noted that shelters currently available lack the necessary requirements of basic accommodation,” (Walsh et al.)
Homeless are often set up for failure by these things so they end up getting into trouble and in jail by not being able to pay for such unreasonable things. Police are already viewed pretty negatively by the homeless and by doing this it just adds to the negativity. So, homeless become even more less susceptible to come to the police for help. Homeless that fining effects are often put in a position where they have no place to go because shelters are either to fall or too violent and sleeping in your car or the streets is criminalized. To conclude I think this solution to getting homeless off the street is moving in the opposite direction.
Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre. Even if the book is not up someone’s alley, it will work for them because a well written book always entices an inquisitive reader. At last, a reader will become enticed with the book Wild Seed because it is much deeper than we think. The underlying themes will have the reader thinking longer after finishing the
As long as racism and cases such as the ones above still happening there will alway be a need for books that teach non racist views and help show young adults that everyone is equal. This book does a great job of showing the terrible actions taken against “niggers and nigger-lovers” from an innocent child’s view. This helps to breakdown the appalling treatment of the African American community to allow people to see the wrong in the actions very clearly. People often find themselves holding a prejudice against others without even realizing it. If we were able to use this book and erase some prejudices pushed onto kids by their parents and therefore creating a more accepting generation by allowing freshmint like us to see the wrongs in people like Mr. Ewell the importance of this book will be manifested.
As Julian’s mother is playing with the black women’s son Carter, she reprimands her son for playing with the white woman.

Tom says he feels bad for Mayella, and everyone in the courthouse is shocked because African American children were taught not to “feel sorry” for white people. Lee’s novel highlighted the innocence and evils of the world and society throughout it. Scout and Jem learn that every man deserves a fair trial no matter what skin color (Smiley 504). By the end of the
