Where many people wanted the abolition of discrimination in the south, Eleanor was in a position to do something about it. She “cited statistics to back up her findings (about discrimination) barging into the president’s room during cocktail hour when he wanted to relax, bothering him about the issue during dinner, handing him memos to read late at night.” While Franklin Roosevelt thought his wife was “outspoken” and “persistent”, he did not want to anger the men in power in the south. However, partly because Eleanor was so persistent, he made sure to include rules against discrimination in his New Deal. This would have been and important fact that could contribute to Gould’s Chapter of the Roosevelt Administration because the chapter explains, “What gains were made in civil rights came largely from the demands of African Americans themselves or the prodding of the First Lady” (91). The book also further explains about how Roosevelt was, “a hesitant and vacillating presence so far as civil rights were
Jeffrey Ware Joel Osteen The other day I ate some rather extraordinary Chinese food for lunch and, on my way out, grabbed a fortune cookie. I cracked it open and read a silly little proverb meant to inspire, I suppose. I wish it had said “Brisk uphill walk after all-you-can-eat buffet is a bad idea.” Never mind. As I waddled my way home, regretting that last plate of food (so delicious…), I thought “This fortune sounds like something Joel Osteen would say.” And then it struck me—there is very little difference between Joel and those fortune cookies (except that the cookies are delicious, of course). And now, to prove it, I will give you these twelve quotes.

Even though the girl knows what the man is up to she lets him come to the store each week, and actually asks him if he wants a spoon to sample the puddings. “Well, let him come if he wants it that bad” “Would you like to sample them, sir?

She anglicized her name to Kyrstin, craved for being a “full-fledged American”, and saw college as a best way to get away from “the house that always smelled of fish sauce and jasmine tea” (275). Both Munoz and Ha are trapped in the same situation: they worry about the society would not accept who they are, where they come from. Assimilation is such an influential word “It is the displacement of one culture over another, the inability to sustain more than one way of being.” (115). It also induces people relentlessly to erase their original identities, and turn them into a state of cultural
But as for me, family tree means noting. As one of the world’s oldest and most complex cultures there is a great deal to discover when working on family trees. In the past, ancient Chinese people concern on the family tree a lot and relevant rules were made, they believe this is the way of memorizing and blessing to the ancestors. However the situation leaps recent several decades, Chinese people adapt modernized novel creations and culture that fast even pay no attention to old traditions.
