In Princess Paradox, Poniewozik sides with Orenstein on this subject. Poniewozik says, “ She should be pretty, but in a class president way, not a head-cheerleader way. She must be socially
These ideas of how many people give limitless love and loyalty to someone, yet wanting some attention/credits, as they deserve it. This shows us how sad it is for many people to not get treated fairly because what they give doesn’t get returned to them. In the end Monique is so into making sure everything is to be perfect for Jordan, and standing up to him. Doesn’t Monique deserve at least a little back from Jordan? There are so many people we hurt because we aren’t aware of the love we have.
It made me feel like people think that just certain African Americans are pretty and that were few pretty ones. In that moment I didn’t know how to make the lady feel stupid and prove her wrong, but as I continued to think about I figured she is so totally wrong.

She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421).

This means the white discourse in community colleges can only decide what is important or what is not important for the students to learn. This caused the racial and ethnic groups to doubt themselves as “human” because the white faculty was considering that their racial experience was not either accountable or recognized into the academics. Furthermore, this also caused some of the women to not understand about their exclusion of the male dominant discourse. In the essay,” Claiming an Education”, Rich explains how the women were being treated by the male discourse in community college, where the male college professors has doubted women for being responsible in their academics, but instead seeing them as sex objects. This caused the majority of the women to reject their own thinking to become more feminine, or to become passive, which they allow other people to think for them, even though they might disagree.
Civil disobedience is a justifiable method to making changes in laws or acts. Many people risk the little freedom they have left to have even more. People like Martin Luther King jr. and Thoreau changed laws for standing up for what they believe in. If you had the chance to change something you disagree about, wouldn't you want to change it.

That’s why women should cover their hair!’” (74, 7).
The person speaking is Atticus because he is giving his final statement in his trial with Tom Robinson,”’She was white, and she tempted a Negro. She did something that in our society is unspeakable: she kissed a black man. Not an old Uncle, but a strong young negro man. No code mattered to her before she broke it, but it came crashing down on her afterwards.’” (272) This was one of Atticus’s last lines from his statement and I think the deeper meaning is that people need to get over this “code” they have. The community needs to realize that even white people do discouraging things.
Elizabeth has been praised for her honesty and morality all along but now has been exposed in court. Is she two faced or does she posses a pretense? To everyone, besides the judges, it is evident she only sought to protect Proctor’s name and reputation. She values her commitment to her husband over honesty.
