3) Walt hates everyone; he really is not a complete racist, because he just hates everyone. So yes, the movie plays around with the racial thing but it becomes more a movie that deals with vigilant justice. Walt demonstrates that he can eventually get along with the Hmong neighbors. At one point in the movie, he even says, “I get along more with theses gooks than I do my own family” (Gran Torino). To society that would seem like it was all about a racial issue it more seems like Walt is just a grumpy old man looking for someone to understand his values in life.
He is seen as a very cruel person who cannot be saved from himself. He only allows Bob Cratchit one lump of coal and tells him to ‘be in early’ the next day. We only begin to feel sympathy for him once Marley appears. Although this is comic, it is also quite sad for Scrooge as he is basically shown his future. The reader feels sympathy as being shown what your life holds is painful,
Williams told the officers that he had climbed into the car, a black Plymouth, believing it was his brother’s, to take a nap. Issues Should evidence of a similar criminal situation between a defendant and another party be admissible?

His biggest strike against him is that he is too controlling and only sees rolls from his viewpoint. His agent, George Fields, explained that no one will hire him because of his bad reputation. In his personal life, Michael is a bit of a jerk that treats women poorly, especially his long term friend and fellow actor Sandy Lester, a woman who already has self-esteem issues.

Chekhov’s protagonist, Gurov is a man who is rough, arrogant and manipulative. He refers women as ‘inferior race’ (Chekhov 205). He does not have feelings for his wife and describes her as “a tall, erect woman with dark eyebrows, stately and dignified and, as she said of herself, intellectual” (Chekhov 205). She rather seems indifferent towards Gurov. The reader gets an impression that she is aware of his infidelities and does not seem to care.
He is known to be a very concentrated and efficient worker, who never smokes nor drinks. Mr. Fitweiler, the employer, always trusted Mr. Martin. Mr. Fitweiler employs a new advisor, Miss Barrows, she was reordering the whole firm, causes a lot of employees to lose their jobs. Mr. Martin sees it as a threat and decided to kill her. Mr. Martin uses imagination to create his plan.
He brings Daisy and Gatsby into disrepute when he confronts them regarding their affair in front of everyone else. His double standard here is very evident because he is happy to unfairly accuse them when he is currently in the midst of having his own affair with his mistress, Myrtle Wilson. He is a very hypocritical man and is not afraid to do anything necessary to remain in control of the situation. Mr Buchanan is also used by Fitzgerald to play the “Brute” character that is present in just about all classic novels (e.g. Roo in “The Summer of The Seventeenth Doll.”) Fitzgerald makes it very clear to us that Tom is “A hulking man” by how the other characters in the book refer to him.
In the play ‘Educating Rita’ cruelty and cynicism feature a great deal. One of the main characters, Frank, is cynical. Frank’s personality portrays him as a miserable old man who cannot see the good in anybody, including Rita. For example, Frank thinks that Rita is only trying to change herself because it will look good to others when they meet her rather than seeing that she is really trying to change her life for the better, not for selfish reasons. When Frank is on the phone to Julia he refers to Rita as “some silly woman” and this portrays him to be cynical because even though he has never met Rita he is already making assumptions about her in a negative manner.
He shows no remorse for his actions and is inconsiderate of how Daisy might feel. He is lost because he has no certainty in his life and he lacks the feeling of belonging to a place of group. This is why he does the things that he does, because the only way he can cope with the horrifying idea that he has no real place to call home. To bring joy to his life, he turns to infidelity and alcoholism. Tom is also as rude as too straight up call Myrtle’s little puppy a bitch.
