In example, the CCC creates separated camps between blacks and whites or the NRA was tolerating that blacks received less money than whites for the same jobs. Eleanor Roosevelt and Harry Hopkins were enforcing racial justice, the president created the “Black cabinet” offering position to numbers of blacks into his administration. African-Americans were employed in the New Deal agencies and more were appointed to jobs with the federal government than ever before. But most important problems were not solved. For instance “In Atlanta, Georgia, a Klan-like group called the Black Shirts paraded carrying signs that read, "No jobs for niggers until every white man has a job"(Jim Crow).
But reality quickly kicked them in the face, shattering their expectations when only white men were welcomed home with admiration. The injustice that had tainted a black man's life for centuries remained rooted in society, collapsing any belief that the war had brought around equality for all. African Americans whom had filled the labor demands in the absence of white men were removed from their positions the moment the war had come to an end, bringing home all those who society did recognize as important people in the war. They were forced to return to menial jobs. And although the jobs were honest, this was just another way to probe the African race, reminding them of their supposed lower status.

Now, let’s look at what a short summary of Gates’ essay would look like: In the essay “What’s in a Name,” Henry Louis Gates expresses his viewpoint on the discrimination that his parents, particularly his father, experienced during his childhood in the South. The specific example that Gates refers to involves an incident where a shopkeeper who was friendly with his father referred to him as “George,” a name that Gates now realizes was a popular way of referring to African Americans in those times. Perhaps because his father made good money and the shopkeeper felt uneasy about his status, or simply because of the color of his skin, Gates’ father had to accept this discrimination and there was nothing he could do about it. As his mother told young Gates, “It was one of those things” (p. 6). (A summary should be Complete, Accurate, Brief, Independent, and Neutral
In our courts, when it’s a white man’s word against a black man’s word, the white always wins. They’re ugly, but these are the facts of life” (Lee 252). 2. (analysis)The speech that Atticus shares with his children proves how much injustice and racism goes on in their town.

Gran Torino was more of a movie that focused on sentimental values and emotional manipulation to do justice to the racial issue. Steve Persall could not have said it better “Clint Eastwood’s character, Korean war veteran Walt Kowalski, is a bigoted widower, one of the last white residents of Detroit neighborhood that becomes more ethnic with each moving van. His sons would prefer Walt to move to assisted living facility, the local priest would rather him in church. Walt snarls at everyone, a grumpy, dirty old Harry ready to pop” (par. 3) Walt hates everyone; he really is not a complete racist, because he just hates everyone.

Symbolism in “Battle Royal” Ralph Ellison is known for writing about race relations. In his short story “Battle Royal,” also the first chapter in Invisible Man, he tells a story about a young African American man who is struggling to prove himself in a racial, prejudice world. Ellison’s story had quite a few excellent symbols, that relate to African Americans, the narrator’s struggle, and pain they endured throughout history. The discussion of this paper will contain the meanings behind the battle, the blindfold, and the scholarship. When the narrator and nine of his classmates arrived to what they thought was a banquet in their honor, they soon discovered it was the furthest thing from the truth.
RICHARD WRIGHT’S “BIG BLACK GOOD MAN”: AN ANALYSIS OF THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE MAIN CHARACTERS WHICH SUPPORTS THE THEME BY PROVIDING A THIRD PERSON POINT OF VIEW AND FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE Richard Wright wrote a short story called ‘Big Black Good Man” which was published three years after his death in 1958.
