The coon, which was short for raccoon, was a derogatory word used to describe free adult African Americans. It represented how White America viewed free adult blacks; depicting them as lazy, child-like, slow, dimwitted, free blacks, that acted without a purpose since they did not have a master to give them a purpose through slavery, and loved to eat watermelons and chicken. It was a clear representation that slavery was a good thing for society and without slavery free blacks would act in this manner. After slavery was abolished, White America would continue to use the coon stereotype to ridicule blacks and make them feel as an inferior class of citizens. Creating Minstrel shows in which white actors would dress up and portray blacks as coons.

In the first place, Viet Congs had already used the guerrilla tactics on the French and succeeded which was clearly a disadvantage for the American soldiers. The Viet Congs also did not wear any particular uniform which caused the American soldiers to kill many innocent people. Not to mention they were traditionally habitual to the jungles, unlike the American troops. Although until 1960 s the Americans thought they were winning the war. This confidence was shattered in 1968.
The author presents him as a curt, impatient, egocentric as well as a desperate alcoholic father, which is definitely not a fatherly figure. In order to understand how his choices have completely impacted his father-and-son relationship, we first need to understand this eventually came to happen. Firstly, John did not spend enough time with Jonny and he had a lack of consideration along with paternity. For illustration, John always used the idea that Johnny was "only a twelve-year-old who wants to be left alone" (page 3) to excuse his misgiving. He showed his shortage of fatherhood through the flashback that John agreed to have Johnny held back a year in school, straightforwardly owing to his selfish want to leave the school, which is the genesis of their poor relationship.
simon also does stuff about people who are poorly treated. Simon represents the opposite of savagery. The battle between the id and the superego is shown during his encounter with the Lord of the Flies. In the end, William Golding's book Lord Of the Flies Freuds theory is shown by how the kids act as they turn from well behaved boys to bloodthirsty hunters with no desire to return to civilization.

In the novel of mice and men by John Steinbeck he was able to captured the voice of the American people during the depression era. He showed that people were racist people during that time. Like on page 19 well when the bus will get mad he will look for Crooks and bypass everybody else just to yell at him because he was the only black person.

Which shows that even though that there was some acceptance of black people why people will still call the network even know it was the right thing to do.so with that evidence being shown shows that John Steinbeck wasn't a racist.
Although slavery ended, technically African Americans were still not free, and Thurgood Marshall, a prominent lawyer, played a key role in bringing back these rights to African Americans. Before Marshall took action, African Americans were undervalued, even though the Civil War was over, and President Lincoln had already established the Emancipation Proclamation. Though the U.S. acknowledged that all African Americans are free, not all white people were able to accept this fact and continued to commit racist actions. The prologue to Showdown by Wil Haygood and the Notes of a Native Son by James Baldwin both illustrate that the injustice and unfair treatment African Americans underwent was a result of their limited rights in society. The Notes
First body paragraph The social exclusion between Jin & Monkey King are very relatable. In this case, they both want to fit in with society.

On page 33 when Jin just came into a new school all the kids made fun of him just because how he looks. Both of these characters were being excluded from their own society.
In the article “Zoot-Suit Fighting Spreads on Coast” (1943) it discusses the racial tension between sailors and soldiers and the “zoot suits” on the west coast. Zoot Suits were mainly Mexican Americans and some African Americans who wore certain outfits that showed that they opposed these “wartime authorities” on the west coast. Most of the Zoot Suits were young men, some as young as twelve years old. This racial tension eventually turned into the soldiers and zoot suits hating each other and this eventually resulted in a week of rioting where more than 150 people were hurt. During this time in 1943 the US was still fighting a world war, so there was no need for anymore chaos to be going on.
What if you and your family got kicked out of your house, moved across the country, were forced to live in stables and fed rotten food all because you had a great grandfather who was Japanese? This is how it was for the Japanese-Americans living on the West Coast of the U.S., all because of their Japanese ancestors. How could the Japanese-Americans put an end to this outrageous disaster? How could it have been avoided? Around the 1940’s, over 120,000 Japanese-Americans were removed from their own houses to ten different internment camps across America.
The internment of Japanese Americans in the United States during World War II was the forced relocation and incarceration in camps in the interior of the country of between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry who had lived on the Pacific coast. Sixty-two percent of the internees were United States citizens. This particular case took place due to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the suspicion of the American people. There is however a rising question to the internment of these people. What is the true cause of their relocation?
