Despite both sisters living in America, only Bharati is an American citizen, while her sister Mira is not. Bharati argues the two ways to belong in America are to transform yourself as an immigrant, or to be an exile. Her sister, Mira, hangs on passionately to her Indian lifestyle and hopes return home to retire. Although their plan was to study for two years in America and then return to India, both sisters unexpectedly married men of their choice. Which kept both sisters in America for an extended period of time.
The idea that they stand as brother and sister, hand in hand. Fighting for the greater good, fighting for what they deserves. But, also the idea that Americans can be oblivious to the seriousness of the hypocrisy of certain situations. There is no culture, like that of the American
Dwight Okita 's poem showed us about American identity has more to do with how you experience culture than where your family came from. Details of the texts such as the speaker describing herself as a typical teen girl, seeing that she dislikes chopsticks, something that we associate with Japanese culture, and telling us that she was the typical American meal of hot dogs. In Cisneros 's story, she tells us about the narrator 's American identity contrasts with her awful grandmother’s strong Mexican roots. But the Americans George the narrator based on her looks. Without this liked grandma of first praise for her American children and grandchildren in a barbaric country, which seems to contrast Michele, Keeks, and Juniors love of American culture, cause we can see, based on their heroes and villains game, which takes its references from popular American culture.
He asked for “an even chance to live as other men live,” and “to be recognized as men.” Joseph promised that “whenever the white man treats the Indian as they treat each other, then we will have no more wars” (Chief Young Joseph). His plea fell on deaf ears, however, and the Nez Perce dwindled to nothingness. The United States history is marred by many heinous acts. One of the worst is the scar left by the treatment of Native Americans, forcibly moved across country. Americans must learn of this history to ensure that no race is ever so mistreated again.
This is shown in early in Anthem, when Equality discovers the wires and knows that they’re something special, “We forget all men, all laws and all things save our metals and our wires” (54). He shows no problem with going against everything he’s been told within a split second to be able to continue his pursuit. Going even further than just breaking the law, Equality’s willingness to put his discovery before himself is a recurring event. He goes a bit mad after making his discovery and will protect it at all costs, “We care not about our body, but our light is...” (61). Equality follows through with this statement not much longer after he makes it.
Introduction Young people living in the rural areas all over the world share similar dreams as their urban counterparts, swayed by the images transmitted by the television network and the lyrics of rock and roll music. But, the psychological perspective of an individual being born as a Native American is forced to undergo the chaos and commotions in the quest of finding a place for themselves. Sherman Alexie’s first novel Reservation Blues (1995) centres on the American Dream and the price of success. Written in vivid narrative using chiselled characters, Reservation Blues explores the life of the Native Americans who seek to recover the consequences of the colonisation and forge their lost identity in their own society. A critically acclaimed
In the poem “To live in the Borderlands means” by Gloria Anazaldua gives a vivid detail how mix people struggle to be recognized by their culture. The speaker has dealt with this issue during her own childhood. Gloria Anazaldua analyzes the struggle she had to endure, not only belonging to one or two races both five races. The speaker had no idea which race was better suited for her. Gloria was neither Hispanic nor Indian or black yet she was living on the borderline of Mexico and Texas.
That in return turns into resentment within the mother daughter relationship. In a study performed by Akm Aminur Rashid that was published in the Journal Of Humanities And Social Science states Mrs. Woo “places unreasonable expectations on the shoulders of her young tender daughter. While the mother may not exactly know where her daughter’s prodigal talents lie, she is nevertheless adamant that her daughter is destined for greatness, by virtue of having been born in America” (Matondang, A. Yakub, and Dja’Far Siddik, IOSR Journal of Humanities and Social Science, Www.iosrjournals.org). Although, Tan’s story is set 29 years ago, this issue of elevated expectations and cultural differences still remains today.
Also, one thing that is seen common in all of those movement was people and their fight for their rights and liberties. Briefly, civil rights and liberties have always moved together, and their difference is complicated as people tend to use them in interchangeable way. However, their difference is that, civil rights is the equality that people demand for whereas, civil liberty is certain activities that government itself does not have the authority to do (Muller). For example, people should not be discriminated regarding their gender, race etc. is civil right, and the first amendment which says that government cannot establish America as any religious country is civil liberty.
In Equality’s society of Anthem by Ayn Rand, they have many rules and controls, or regulations. They have the rules in place so everyone is the same. The Council doesn’t want anyone to be different, or to have different thoughts. Equality’s new society will have no rules from the old society because he cultivates individuality, he loathed the old society’s rules, and he knows what it means to be an leper. To begin, Equality nurtures individuality.
