Carmen Dent Mrs. Roberts English Book: Beastly By: Alex Flinn 1. Discuss how the main character is like or unlike a person you know? (10 points) Kyle, the main character in the book Beastly, is rude and careless. He only cares for his self, and if someone looks ugly or nerdy to him he will be extremely disrespectful to them. There are a lot of people that I know who would do that to people just because they think they are better than most people.
This is considered to be of high risk because it can pass other diseases which can make them ill because of their low immune system already being weak by the HIV virus. Some men find it difficult to ask their partners to wear a condom because it raises feelings of insecurity and infidelity in the relationship. In many cases men don’t have access to condoms so they decide to have unprotected sex. Many gay men have difficulty disclosing their sexual orientation because of fear of rejection from family, friends, children and society. It is advised that they receive mental health treatment to deal with these fears of rejection.
As is the case for most viral phenomena, there are those who aren’t too keen on hip-hop Elvis’s lyrical prose. They fear that his overwhelming invectives can and will entreat harm upon his avid listeners. In spite of the schism between the lovers and the haters, Eminem has undoubtedly taken the music industry by storm; and in turn, our views and considerations. While the zealots of ‘Slim Shady’ defend his lyrics and context with phrases like ‘artistic expression’ and ‘free speech’, as made evident in Jackson Katz’s essay entitled Eminem’s Popularity Is a Major Setback for Girls and Women, Eminem’s cultural trailblazing comes with a less-than charismatic price: widespread acceptance of violence against anyone and everyone who falls within the crosshairs of his philosophy. People see this on a day-to-day basis, sometimes blatantly, other times situated behind the cleverly posed acceptances found in daily public life: Guy eyes a fetching girl and advances discretely.
The only thing that would upset him now was his name because no one could pronounce it properly. This shows us that the group of people at that time were extremely racist and that it would have been very hard for Sunil to fit in, which led him to change his name to Neil. Neil found a false sense of belonging with his name change. This stopped majority of people making fun of his name, “I could feel
For most of his professional life, Ray Lewis has tried to expiate his sin from the year 2000. The fans have been particularly draconian, however, to Ray. Some fans are xenophobic, as others are racist, and the idea of a black man committing murder and getting away with it is unbearable to them. This raises a question of propriety, and, in this case, people are being unjust. The quixotic nature of the fans hatred is unbearable to say the least, impractical as can be.
This scene shows how being homosexual during the 50's, was a problem to society because it just wasn’t “right” to everyone around them. During this time it made it seem like because you were gay it made you less of a man. It was just a shame how ignorant and uneducated people were and what they thought during those times. The thoughts and reactions towards interracial relationships during those times were stupid and ridiculous. And in someone berating their boyfriend or girlfriend, people have arguments and I feel its best that others keep themselves out of relationships they aren’t involved in.
In personal settings Kanye West is a heartfelt person who puts all of his emotions into his music so his fans can identify with him. West has offended people in saying rude remarks about him and others including saying that he is “the greatest rappers of all time” and that “if it weren’t for him changing the game some of these rappers wouldn’t be rapping”. West has insulted other entertainers including when he embarrassed country artist Taylor Swift during an awards ceremony where she was being presented an award. Kanye West literally jumped on stage to announce to everyone that she didn’t deserve the award but another artist did. This incident proved to others that he didn’t care what he did to others because it was something he wanted to do at the time.
However, there is one character who isn’t racist and that is Huckleberry Finn. He is racist at first and that is because he grew up in an environment which is completely racist. However, in time he does start to realize that Jim and himself are equal. If he were truly racist, he would have sold him out, which he had several opportunities to and denied giving up his friend. When Huck almost sells Jim out, it is a constant internal battle between Huck’s heart and society.
This one is greatly affected by the media. A majority of musicians have problems with drugs, alcohol, public disorder and infidelity. Most come from broken families with toxic environments. They reflect their emotions in the songs they write which greatly influence listeners. The media likes to capture rock musicians using drugs at wild parties and acting irresponsible to get attention from people and increase magazine sales and ratings.
This was very controversial because he had many supporters including Fox news themselves. Of course this was all over the media and that added many more negative views about the religion of Islam. Muslims are ordinary people but the media portrays them as terrorists. They have negative images of Islam and Muslims everywhere. These negative images are based on erroneous ignorance.
