His sister sometimes annoys him but most of the time they get along. He claims in some cases his parents might be right about some things and decisions but he doesn’t like people telling him what to do, he likes to think on his own and when he gets stuck he will ask his parents. Usually when he gets into a disagreement with his parents, they talk to him and with reasoning they make him agree. I asked him if he was in trouble who would he go to besides his immediate family, he said it depends on what kind of trouble? If it was a big trouble I would go to my aunts and uncles, if it was something I did wrong and I got in trouble with my parents I would talk to my friends or cousins.
In “The Lesson,” Toni Cade Bambara writes about Sylvia, a young poor black female learning that life isn’t what it seems. A group of black children meet a lady named Miss Moore, a role model of the kids who is not a typical black lady in the neighborhood. Miss Moore has “proper speech” and is college educated. When Miss Moore brings the children from the ghetto to an upperclass toy store they are surprised at what they find. “Handcrafted sailboat of fiberglass at one-thousand-one-hundred-ninety-five dollars” make the children feel like for “that much money it should last forever.” Sylvia does not like how Miss Moore is always teaching them lessons and how she is getting them to see that they are so poor.
Ryan Peete English 1A Ramos 1/16/13 Minorities Trials And Triumphs Based on the true story of Coach Ken Carter (Samuel L. Jackson) and high school basketball team the Richmond Oilers, Coach Carter helps out a discouraged coach as he takes on the job as the new head coach; However, he slowly begins to apply his hard and rigorous workout routine to show the young athletes how to stretch not only the body but the mind as well. When the team and the parents cause animosity about how grades aren’t more important than basketball, Carter locks down the gym and ultimately canceling practice and games in an attempt to make the Oilers winners on and off the court and strive for a future. In the film Coach Carter, Carter although insensitive to the n-word, strives to teach young minority student athletes to respect each other, gain an education and lose their stereotypical thug personas. In the film Coach Carter the n-word is used very loosely and asserted throughout the movie by the diverse group of athletes to identify each other as brothers are friends, not knowing they are being bias, not only to themselves but to others around them as well. Timo Cruz one of the primary actors in this film has shown himself to be a lost street thug who has no aspirations in life but to play basketball and sell drugs.
As Sherwin observes in her article Deconstructing the Male: Masochism, Female Spectatorship, and the Femme Fatale in Fatal Attraction, Body of Evidence, and Basic Instinct Dan, the male character from Fatal Attraction is unable to fight against Alex and all his intents fail. He is “weak, passive and helpless.” (177).Although he was the one that had committed the mistake to involve in a relationship with Alex, his wife has the role of the savior for their family. She shoots Alex and this is how the nice family returns to the original state of love and security. At first, both Dan and Alex were attracted to each other, but is Alex who takes the first steps in the relationship. When he proposes her to have a date, she says: “I did have a date.” So she had canceled it knowing that Dan will ask her out.
This is directly connected to Francois and his team, because they go up against immeasurable odds just to win the world cup, uniting the country. They train very hard, and quite literally go through hell just to win. Also, Francois is indirectly related to this poem because he was told about it by Nelson Mandela, who came from a very bad prison and when he came out, he was ready to forgive the whites. Francois’ greatest challenge in making moral decisions is the acceptance of his subordinates and parents. His parents resent Madiba in the beginning of the movie, and when Francois starts to be influenced by Mandela his parents disapprove of it.
For example: Keely tries to fit in, her friend Jaz encourages her to join parties, she is uncomfortable and doesn’t know whether she should be involved. A extreme close-up of her facial expressions shows this confusion. Her characterisation is being self-critical, she is not into bad things, but she went along with it. Another example is Toby, he wants to be noticed and popular, just like Shaun who is popular as a sports star. When Toby became a wrestling team member, the dialogue between him and his sister or his friend shows his attitude changing, thinking he has became cool enough to disrespect his elder sister and friend.
Robin overpowered Rashad with verbal assault rather than encouraging ownership, involvement, and teamwork. Aggressive behavior does not encourage active listening because the person speaking is talking at the receiver, not talking to the receiver (Hansten & Jackson, 2009). The group witnessed a passive response by Rashad but had no idea that he was plotting a form of aggressive communication with Robin. Rashad internalized his emotions, planning a comeback toward Robin. He wants to teach her a lesson by making her workday difficult and time-consuming, so that she will realize how much she needs him.
She solved the problems that burgomaster gave her, as well as made a game of her marriage with the burgomaster. Finally she outwitted her husband and her husband always consulted her whenever a very difficult case came up. As a woman lived in those times, she conciliated respect with her cleverness. Raimunda is very kind and tolerant. She hated her mother since she thought her mother should respond on that event that her father raped her.
Her story, although we might not know if they’re completely true, tells of a woman who knew how to use her resources to gain the maximum out of her life. The men in her life were, for the most part, submissive, scared, and a little tortured by her. That is no way for a man to act, so to get them so willing, she had to have some power over them. As much as I respect her and really like her abilities, she does have a couple downfalls. She’s pretty disrespectful and with her fifth husband, they only way she got anything was because she hit him.
