Nash helped people remember all those who influenced the revolution that were lost in history amnesia. Such influences were common farmers who created mass mobs and in short did almost “civil” acts of militia men. As Nash wrote in the secondary source, the men “turned the city upside down,” meaning Boston. In a letter written by Governor Morris in New York, writes his comments on the “mob.” It goes as follows,”the heads of the mobility grow dangerous to the gentry, and how to keep them down is the question.” Riots were all along the north and seemed to have affected New York in this pressing matter on taxations. In Nash’s article, many Aristocrats feared the impact the riots would have on other groups such as those that are slaved.
This became news known all over, Nationwide. While white citizens and African American citizens believe the Columbia riot occurred in a different manner and for different reasons it was still a tragic moment in the Civil Rights Movement that were portrayed differently by the National Globe and Columbia Daily Harrold which were two of the most popular newspapers in the Nashville, Columbia area. The Nashville Globe accused the competing newspaper at the time of making the story biased. The Globe reported the story of how the riots began by saying, “On Monday the mother and son were in the Castner Knott store on Columbia’s public square. Then the mother had words with a white radio repair man of the firm about her radio in which she disputed his claim that the radio had been repaired.
In an instance of foreshadowing, she thinking, “Oh well, whatever goes over the Devil’s back, is got to come under his belly”(39) which means that she knows eventually Skyes will get what’s coming to him. Delia sets out to do her washing and passes by a group of men sitting at a store. The tone and focus of “Sweat” by Zora Neale Hurston changes for a while as the men comment on how pretty Delia used to be and how it’s such a shame that she’s beaten so often and lost her good looks. They talk about Syke’s behavior with the Bertha woman and generally frown upon him, with one saying, “There oughter be a law about him… He ain’t fit tuh carry guts tuh a bear.”(31) Clearly the whole town seems to have a negative reaction against Sykes. On her way back, Delia sees Sykes out front of Bertha’s telling her that he will buy her whatever she wants.
Because people are making fun of his nose he is able to provide witty humor that makes the book become a comedy. Valvert says “Ah…your nose…hem!...Your nose is…rather large!” “Rather” “Oh well” “Is that all” “Well of course.”(35-36 Act 1) But Cyrano does not leave it like this he replies by insulting Valvert and ultimately making him angry by telling him all the better insults that he could have had. He threw it right back in his face by making it a joke. Throughout the story comedy like this occurs and that is why I believe it is a

They returned home to find that racism was part of everyday life. Between 1915-1922 more than 430 black Africans where lynched. The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965 .These where laws discriminating the black Americans. The laws segregated blacks in schools, parks, hospitals, swimming pools, libraries and other public places, Black found it extremely hard to get fair treatment.

The early 20th century southern United States was not a particularly good time for the African American community. Despite the freedom gained after the Civil War, black society was still in the grip of “Jim Crow.” African Americans faced racial segregation, restricted civil rights and liberties. In “Battle Royal,” Ralph Ellison portrays the struggles of African Americans in the 1920’s through the inhuman physical, emotional, sexual and persecuting treatment of the protagonist. Throughout “Battle Royal,” one can see the physical oppression that the African American protagonist and black society was put through. The ballroom battle royal fight scene mirrors this perfectly.
But especially, Mystery Beer. You say that it’s $2.50 and they say “Is there a way the mystery beer could be a Sweet Josie?” and you shake your head solemnly and say “Sorry, there are rules in this world about mystery.” But you end up bringing them a Sweet Josie anyways, pulled from a giant cooler of beers the bartender wants to get rid of. And then you feel like some greek god blessing the masses with their
