It prevents people from completing tasks in life or doing what they want to do because they are shut down just because they are different from others. Through the examination of Lennie and Crooks’ characters from Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, discrimination and racism negatively affect their lives, ultimately tearing them from their dreams. Crooks, an African-American man, is one of the few that have had his dreams ruined by racism. He is suppressed by the people of his country for simply being different.

She went to go see if she had the power to see the invisible boy and when she found out that she did, they quickly eloped. As for her older sisters, the invisible boy’s sister turned them into bugs, but that was not out of Oochigeaskw’s spite. In the text it narrates, “But if such transformation occurred you must not think it was done for revenge.” This explains that she did not allow that to happen according to her id—instead she was listening to her superego from the
-Body Paragraph 3 Crooks didn't have any family around so he learned things on his own. I think Crooks is much lonelier than Candy because he never had a family around him.

And the jury being white means he has no chance at winning, it’s truly sad, but during the time of the trial that 's just how society works.

Another time that it is very clear that people don’t treat Tom the same as white people is when people refer to him as a “nigger.” The first example of this is at the Finch landing on Christmas when Scout and Cousin Francis get into a fight after Francis says something to Scout about Atticus, “He’s nothin’ but a nigger-lover” (Lee 83).

This relationship, unlike her relationship with the church, almost was an act of rebellion. Donlon describes her initial impression of her future spouse by saying,“Jon was a long haired hippy atheist. At the time that he proposed to me, he was working for the city of Lafayette picking up dead animals on the street.”9 Donlon knew that the relationship between Jon and herself was different from the very beginning, telling her sister that “[she] wouldn’t have a very traditional life, but [she]’d have a life of adventure”.10 Not only did Donlon find someone game for adventure, but she also found a partner who matched her ambivalence to gender roles, saying “I’ve always felt a range of feminine and masculine traits...and Jon has a very strong fluid gender identity as well”.11 Neither of them ever placed gender norms upon each other, such as Donlon never requiring Jon to be her “meal ticket”, allowing both of them to follow their passions when it came to the job market. This freedom and fluidity in her relationship led Jocelyn to the most perspective-altering experiences she would ever have: her trips
Years ago African Americans and Caucasians didn’t get along due to slavery. Ralph Ellison is telling a story about a young African American ‘narrator” about him being invisible.
