Francisco Pizarro was uneducated and grew up illiterate. I think that the reason behind that is that he did not grow in a family like the others. Based on that he becomes a shepherd to live because his parents were not beside him. There was something missing in his childhood
As a hero, Ignacio appears to be courageous, caring, and considerate. He is caring because he felt bad for not having quality ingredients to make better meals for the orphans. He displayed courageousness when he went against the rules of the orphanage and became a luchador so he could possibly win the prizes that were given to the winners. Nacho was considerate of the orphans’ needs by using the money that he received from the match to buy better food and a bus for field trips.
The Bronze Screen introduced both positive and negative portrayals of Latinas and Latinos in film. While there are plenty of positive Latino roles in films, Latinos and Latinas should be included in more positive roles because the negative roles Latinos have in films cause negative stereotypes.

Along the play the press would make the Mechicanos look how they wanted them to be looked at, for example, they would describe the way they dressed as something negative. During the trial the lawyer spoke to the judge about them not providing clothing or haircuts to the boys,along that, the press responded to them not providing clothing and or haircuts because for them that is the way the gang members are characterized. After George hearing what the press had said he responded to it by stating “ You are trying to exploit the fact that these boys look foreign in appearance! Yet clothes like these are being worn by kids all over America.” (Luis Valdez.Zoot Suit.53). For many people after seeing everything that the press was stating about the 38th street gang members, the society’s opinions changed about the Mechicano boys, “As El Pachuco says to the Press, "The Press distorted the very meaning of the word 'zoot suit.' All it is for you guys is another way to say Mexican”(Granger.6). The press made the word Zoot Suit become a symbol of being a foreign appearance guy who comes from a different heritage and should be looked at in a different way because of

Inside the dungeon, the prisoners had a little trial where he is being prosecuted. For his defense, Cervantes reenacted his story. The story is about a man named Alonso Quijano. To put it in better words, he was mentally insane. It understandable, he is old. Alonso Quijano believes that he is a chivalrous knight that goes by the name of Don Quixote. Don Quixote is a courageous man who does things for the good of the people and the king. We, as the audience, can guess that Don Quixote’s personality is one that Alonso probably never had, or maybe a personality he always desired for. Throughout the end of the play, his worried family brings Alonso back to reality, telling him (in a nice way, of course) to get his head out of the
Buddy is the lead character in the play Elf, I attended the Wednesday on November 18 at 7:30PM. I must admit that I had a magnificent experience, and got way more than I bargained for Not only was the play wonderfully executed, but Buddy was absolutely flawless from my perspective as an audience member. On top of filling the character physical attributes, the character who played Buddy was exceptional in areas such as bearing a strong presence, being able to control his voice, his arrivals and dismissals on stage, his motivation to believe he was buddy the elf, being able to adjust development of the character during the play, and accustomed to the environment he was preforming in. All of these different facets enticed the audience to infiltrate

The Americas have always contained a vast variety of cultural communities, especially in the United States.

The correlation between triumph and productivity is much more significant than triumph and age. It is true that as one ages, their knowledge increases over time; thus, resulting in better productivity.

The zoot-suiters were not only outcasts by their choice of dress, but also due to the fact they were recent immigrants who were pushed from their former home in Southern California to their new home in the urban areas of Los Angeles due to the Depression back in the late 1930s. These young Mexican-Americans were the new minority in town, and were deprived of jobs and resources which
There comes a time when a nation needs to realize that when a world crisis such as the “War on Drugs” persists in our society -- change is necessary. In the film Traffic directed by Steven Soderbergh, the “War on Drugs” is represented in different perspectives to illustrate the issue at diverse levels. Played by Michael Douglas, Robert Wakefield is an Ohio judge who’s appointed do the head drug position in the government. Through his point of view, it’s clear he holds the typical opinions and views of majority of people who are pro-criminalization of drugs. His daughter, an honor student, and your “perfect citizen” type character, is Caroline Wakefield played by Erika Christensen. It is through her point of view where we notice how easily drugs are available to her and how susceptible teenagers are to addiction. Finally, a unique and different perspective is shown through Javier Rodriquez played by Benicio Del Toro. Depicted as a “good cop” in Mexico, Javier is actively fighting against criminals, drug traffickers/smugglers and the reality of corruption in the Mexican military. Between the 3 we view the film at the political level of the drug war, the social level, and law enforcement level, respectively. Soderbergh uses different colors to distinguish between the several storylines. For instance, when we are played a scene involving Robert or Caroline, the overall color is a blue shade creating a “cold” feeling. When a scene involving Javier is played, the filter changes
Staged in London this year, a new version of Calderon De La Barca 's play Life is a Dream, retells it from the point of view of its main female character. The website for Rosaura proclaims her as "one of the strongest characters in the history of theatre", (REF), giving the impression that Calderon, despite his strong absolutist and catholic views, believed in some equality of the sexes. After all, in the original play, when Rosaura bursts onto the stage, dressed like a man, swearing and climbing down a mountain side, she is signalling to the audience that this is a female character breaking down all the restrictions placed on her gender in 17th Century Spain. Conversely, by the play 's end, this feisty female is submitting meekly to marriage,
