He held one of his wives at gunpoint, and beat his wives often, one instance even being during the week of peace. Him being abusive caused him and his wives not to be as close, as they feared him. When Ikemafuna was stabbed in the back by a machete, he yelled out to Okonkwo to save him but in fear of looking weak (which comes from his issues with his father) in front of his friends he finished off Ikemafuna. When Okonkwo killed Ikemafuna, it had a negative effect on his family and in the long run lead to his alienation from them. Not only did Okonkwo’s outbursts lead to his alienation from his family, but also from his community.
April 04, 2011 Journal for Jordan by Dana Canedy opens different points of view on the decision of Charles having gone to war when his partner Dana had just become pregnant. She has an opinion about his decision as expressed when she says: “He simply could not be sent into battle. It had taken us too long to find each other” (Canedy 105). At the same time she tries to support Charles because she knows how hard he fought for it and how important this mission was for him, as we see in the following sentence uttered by Dana: “I did have political view about war—everyone did, and I could have forced him into debating the issue. But none of that seemed right now.
The slave dealers and owners would dehumanize the slaves to the point that they had no say so in their lives or any freedom what so ever. They were told where to live, who they can live with, eat, work, sleep and who they can marry. If they disobeyed any orders they were beat, whipped and even killed. With these hardships as a slave Frederick Douglass hated everything about being a salve and had hatred for his oppressors. He rebelled against his slave masters through learning to read and write.
Alex Pereira Ms. Bayer AP English 11 November 28, 2011 The Jubilance of Frederick Douglass Through His Diction On page 43 of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, after his fight with Mr. Covey Douglass describes his new found hope of freedom along with his new found confidence in which he feels he can never be stopped from obtaining his freedom. The two men’s fight causes fear to be stricken into Mr. Covey’s heart, although it brought nothing but happiness to Douglass. Douglass revolted against his master and even made him bleed; something most slaves would have been punished for and most would even have their lives ultimately ruined due to this, but not Douglass. Douglass walks away from this fight with his head held high and a new outlook on his life.
Clora generation's family has suffered for many cruel thing slave masters did for Clora mother's family, the family of Clora, and children families of Clora. Clora committed suicide because she could not take no longer to live. Although, Clora's family extended and spread out many
“The mother was beaten to death. She has dozens of broken bones, a fractured skull, and as you can see, she is not recognizable at all.” The detective was shocked by the brutality of the beating, “Jesus Christ!” he exclaimed. “What about the rest?” “Jim, the father. He was slightly starved, but the cause of death is dehydration.” “It’s like he just neglected him completely… left the bastard to die while killing the rest of ‘em.” The coroner moved to the next set of corpses. They stank and made the air smell rotten.
It is here that I think Douglass makes another significant step, that is when he creates protections for himself and his clan, or as I like to think of it, their own declaration of independence from the slave community. But, like all things thus far in Douglass’s life, things fell through, and he suffered the mean hand of a relentless slave system. Although Douglas had burned his fake protection papers in order to save himself and his allies, the declaration was still clear in his mind. Like a true revolutionary, he stuck to it and eventually experienced life unrestrained by the horrid slave community in which he came from. It truly is amazing how much Douglass went through in order to experience life outside of his own community.
Slavery victimized the slaves themselves, the slave holders, and the non slave holding whites. Slaves were number one in victimization. The Slaves worked long hard days for no money at all. Slaves hardly ever had any free time most of their lives were devoted to their masters. The slaves had little to no values, they had no family.
Vision for the Future In America in the eighteen hundreds, slavery was in full swing in the south. Beaten, battered, and bruised, the life of a slave was one of the most grueling hardships that anyone has ever had to face. Between horrid living conditions, intense labor, and sinister masters and overseers, life in the south for a slave was nothing short of hell. Families were torn apart in this time, some never even knowing who there family was. Many people died in this vicious cycle of imprisonment and tyranny, without any justification as to why they were being treated this way.
He was mentally unstable due to his upbringing and abusive father. His love for his mother made him the way he is. He killed older women for pleasure and to use their skin for things like masks, furniture and belts. Of all the murderers out there, he has to be the worst. The world is a better place without
