She called Atticus a “nigger-lover” just like how Tittle’s wife disagree with him playing football again right after he recovered his injuries from the past. To me, Aunt Alexandra was rude because that was an insult unlike Tittle’s wife who just disagreed with what he is going to do. Even though Atticus know that he might lose everything helping out the black client with his trial, he still helps him just like now Tittle know that he might lose his life playing football with such injuries but he still plays. This is not only courage to me but also brave to me because I would never be able to do what Tittle and Atticus did. Tittle is brave enough and be like Atticus who betted
In the very beginning of the book, there is a clear dichotomy between the so called “pretties,” and the “uglies.” The uglies live in uglyville and must attend school, whereas the pretties live in New Pretty Town and can basically party all day. One can tell that appearance is a heavy factor in this society, as Tally must sneak over to New Pretty Town and must wear a mask to hide her “ugly” face. The concept of appearance began to evolve when Tally met Shay, a rebel who doesn’t want to become “pretty”, because she already believes she is. Shay says, “They all look the same” and also “We’re not freaks, Tally. We’re normal.
Josephine Alibrandi argues with her mother about her visiting her grandmother after school, her school behaviour, her mother’s personal life, her mother’s relationship with men other than her father and her own relationship with Jacob Coote. These are all the issues that teenagers express via arguments to their parents. Another association with adolescence is peer pressure. Throughout the novel, Josephine is pressured by her friends to do something which she believes isn’t right. An example of this is the walk-a-thon where Josephine is put in charge of taking care of the back of the group but she abandons her duty as her friends convince her into skipping school to meet a celebrity.

RANT ON UNIFORMS By Wei-Wen Poon LIKE A BEAST Nearly every student in what is considered a multicultural country, with a blend of varying values and beliefs, is forced into the act of conformity through the demoralising use of uniforms. Uniforms devalue our own teenage social group, and attempt to enforce an image of obedience and cohesion to the school as the figure of authority. Teenagers and young adults in the late 1900s were the main reformists of the time period protesting against authority and the law in strive for a better world, even bringing about the peace movement that ended the war in Vietnam. Many youths tend to challenge the mainstream culture, instead choosing to branch off to many indie groups emphasising their own personal identity through clothing, music and culture. Historically uniforms have portrayed indifference between countries specifically in war, to mark foe from friend which nowadays marks the difference between us and other schools.
Children are children, regardless of race, and King knew that the mistreatment of these children would expose the violence that had been ever-present in Birmingham. This, however, was not a popular suggestion among black parents and family members. They scolded King for being so inconsiderate, but they knew that there was really no other way that could be nearly effective. Nevertheless, one day in May of 1963, over one thousand black youths did not attend school. Instead, the students gathered together and prepared to demonstrate.
The LBGT movement started in the 1960’s during the start of the counterculture. Young people, or hippies, promoted peace and freedom, and had freer attitudes towards sexual relationships. Their new views on sexual conduct, which rejected many traditional restrictions on behavior, were labeled “the sexual revolution”. This revolution was not successful because of their passive protesting. They did not protest in large rallies, and were considered by many to be “silent”, which is why LGBT teenagers are still be targeted.
Discrimination Laws in Pennsylvania Last year, after learning about the discrimination and disconnect about Chick-a-Fila, I was curious to learn more about the discrimination laws in Pennsylvania and in Allegheny County. Because of all the misunderstanding around the situation, the communities around Allegheny County and the United States were all in an uproar. This is when I decided that I wanted to create a career in human resources and helping people. So, this past May I enrolled back into college to pursue my degree. In my research, I’ve learned that Allegheny County along with a handful of other counties in the state of Pennsylvania prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
For example, Obama expresses that, “crumbling schools are stealing the future of black children and white children and Asian children and Hispanic children and Native children” (373). He identifies these variety of races to show that this problem do not merely affect one race, but it affects everyone. The concept of limiting possibilities for any child to grow and succeed in their future is something that is meant to catch any parents attention. He uses pathos as a strategy to hook adults and parents because they are able to have a personal connection with what he is saying. Near the ending of his speech President Obama tells a heart felt story of a young twenty- three year old girl, whose mother was diagnosed with cancer when she was nine years old.
What does this do to the trust that has been built between leaders and followers? Many times what separates leaders from the rest is the fact that they are viewed as competent, trustworthy, and dependable. When someone fails in such crucial areas are marital commitments, financial responsibilities, and sins of other natures, it is viewed as a weakness. Even when they admit fault and responsibility for what they have done, the damage is done. It takes much time and much effort to regain the trust that was once
