They are described as vague, uncultured, unskillful, coarse, and people who have a cruel background. In other words, they are described as unintelligent and barbaric person. As the play goes, Othello’s character does not fit the racist description that is given by Iago and Roderigo. However, it is impossible for a reader to think that Othello is not being discriminated and criticized by the other characters. As a matter of fact, Othello is race because of his skin, lips, and secret marriage.
This, of course, is not the true nature of "goodness", and a key element in Twain's satire. In fact, Huck, who is one of the only good characters in the novel, believes good is based on the elements of dangers which face him every day, and due to this dichotomy, does not believe he is "good". This becomes painfully evident when Huck meets the Gregfords. The Gregfords are an obvious simile for pure evil. Though they have a temporal glow to them, after all, they are rich and aristocratic.
The quixotic nature of the fans hatred is unbearable to say the least, impractical as can be. By becoming extremely religious and exemplifying great leadership qualities, Ray has tried to ameliorate his public image. Ray is also a gregarious man, enjoying the company of many others. However, the fastidious fans that hate on Ray are never going to let him live down the murder
“ I knowed he was white inside (40). Huck states that though Jim is African American, he has intellectual thoughts and a lack of education does not change the way Jim thinks and cares. “Jim was most ruined, for a servant because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches.” (9).Most people judged Jim, not only because of the color of his skin, but the fact that he spoke differently then white folk. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Jim continues to make intelligent thoughts and problems to the pairs sticky situations and proves to the reader that the southern stereotypes in the 1800’s were racist and
Shakespeare reflects this as Othello's and Desdemona's marriage, black man and white woman, is seen as “against all rules of nature” although it simply is just a change in tradition. As a result, we see the African Othello's subtle segregation from the Venetian Society, referred to as “thick-lips”, “old black ram” and “Barbary horse” as he is seen as a threat not only socially, but physically. However, as the play progresses, we see that Othello is instead, “Valiant”, and “worthy”, not at all like Iago's crude
Though women were often accused of being easily impressionable, the older men and women were accused of being impure and diseased with malice. Since they were old and weak, they were easily deceived by the Devil. Older people are usually more susceptible to illnesses and they would often go blind or become hunch-backed. These physical abnormalities were easy for accusers to blame on the devil, tools to do the devil’s work or consequences for being a devil’s worker. Not only were these accusers using social prejudices, they were also using scientific facts against those accused.
Despite this, the two mockingbird figures, one being very, very white (‘Boo’ Radley) and the other being extremely ‘velvety’ dark (Tom Robinson) are not part of the normal society in Maycomb. This does not mean that they are bad, but just that the people in Maycomb focus much of what they think on the surface of the person. This can be related to Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’, in which people base what they think on what they see. Frankenstein is also a normal being, but has been rejected by society because of his external features, just like the two ‘mockingbirds’ in To Kill A Mockingbird. All of these characters are kind beings and as can be seen by Tom in the courthouse he ‘felt right sorry’ for Miss Mayella.
He is the prime example of a character that is easy to sympathize with or feel sorry for; however, the monster deserves a lot more sympathy than Victor does. Victor in a sense is the counterpart to the monster; he is surrounded by people who love him and cherish his company and thoughts. The monster on the other hand has no one to talk to, and is rejected by all even if though his heart is passionate. It is as the saying, ‘do not judge a book by its cover’,with the monster it is this way. He seems to be a very intelligent being, though he may be a little immature, this is all Victor’s doing.
The 10th Juror is prejudiced and racist against the boy and his race as well as his background. The 10th Juror ignores the evidence which results in him continually fighting against those who are voting not guilty, for no particular reason but his prejudice. Juror 11 disagreed with Juror 3, 7 and 10 as Juror 11 talked based on facts and he is strictly looking for justice rather than the people who just voted guilty for no real reason. The playwright indicates that the facts and truth is of outstanding importance when deliberating a judicial trial. Rose explores the idea that extreme prejudice can blind people to the truth.
The reason is how obvious his jealousy and racism are. As Michael O'Sullivan states in ‘The Washington Post’, “F. Murray Abraham's portrayal of an embittered, racist teacher and failed writer, envious of Jamal's talent and determined to destroy him, is way too obvious.” A Professor couldn’t make it if he was that bent on crushing his best students, its just unrealistic, the fact that he is so convinced Wallace is cheating without even having a real reason for suspicion besides Wallace is black is too cliché for the movie. Luckily some explanation is provided by Crawford’s background, by failing at being a writer his is automatically inclined to make others fail. Michael McLarney supports
