“Overzealous officials” grill suspicious foreigners “to the point of near panic” (Khan 559). In worst cases, death has occurred Haitians seeking refuge, a man was not allowed to keep his medication while he was put in Krome (Danticant 569). The profiling does not only happen with officials, but many Americans often profile foreigners. Americans heightened suspicion on not only non-Americans, but on Americans with Middle Eastern traits. Americans know “racial profiling is both morally wrong and ineffective”, but they rather be safe than sorry (Chavez 563).
Another example of his anger towards “brown” people is when they lose to Julian (who is black) at the costume competition. Kevin was very angry, specifically at the fact that there were supposedly only white people cheering for them, with all “brown” people cheering for Julian. During his rant he said, in reference to “brown” people, “I’m tired of these people. I’m tired of the way they dress, the way they smell, the way they think they’re better than us, the way they aren’t grateful to live in the best country in the world. I’m just plain tired of them, and I’m tired of having to act like I should apologize for it!” (208) That rant showed how he has a lot of aggression towards those people, and that he can’t seem to look passed their race.
One problem that people have really with these kinds of wars is that they only focus on the bad things and what goes wrong in them. These ignorant people let the ever so negative media make their decisions on why wars like these are wrong. The media only ever has seemed to show the bad sides of everything and unfortunately the majority of the people in this country watch about five minutes of the news, only watch and see the bad sides of these wars, and continue on about the business only knowing and thinking “oh the _____ war is so dumb we aren’t accomplishing anything whatsoever!” Take another war for example the War in Iraq. We entered it to really try and establish ‘peace in the middle east’. Again sadly people flip on the television; see the reports reporters found of Iraqis begging that we get out that we have only made things worse, they see that our government spends too much money on the war, and that x amount of soldiers died that day.
The video that I chose to watch was the funny used car commercial. In the commercial the finance manager starts out nice but the minute the customer says they have bad credit the finance manager proceeds to call the customers garbage and worthless. This would be a dysphemism because the finance manager is yelling and throwing things just because his customers have bad credit and there is no fact in the claim that people who have bad credit are garbage and they are worthless. In the commercial it can be categorized in emphasis because the finance manager is really emphasized on the negative aspects of the customer’s credit. When I watched the video the rhetorical devices left me speechless as how anyone would speak to another human being
Emmett Shumaker Mrs. Kenyan Psychology 5/21/12 Cool Hand Luke Some people in this world simply refuse to change, refuse to conform to the rules beset upon them. The story of Cool Hand Look gives one a great example of such a person. In Cool Hand Luke, Luke Jackson, the main character, is arrested for cutting off the heads of the town's parking meters while drunk. When asked why he cut the heads off the parking meters, Luke answers, "You could say I was settling an old score." This is perhaps a sentiment to his mistrust of authority.
Robert Verkaik: Case exposes Britain's multicultural tensions Published: 07 November 2006 in the Independent Claims by an experienced policeman that he has been victimised in his work because of his children's religion will fuel growing concern about the treatment of all Muslim officers who are serving in the Metropolitan Police. It follows the case of another Muslim firearms officer who, at the height of the conflict in southern Lebanon, was excused from guarding the Israeli embassy in Kensington Palace Gardens, because of a possible conflict of interest over his family links with Lebanon. Many will say that those cases can be used to support the view that the Metropolitan Police remains racist. But those cases
Chaucer created a variety of flawed Church officials on this pilgrimage and most are portrayed in a subtle satiric manner, however, the Pardoner is scathingly and sarcastically depicted as a petty, mean, self-serving irredeemable hypocrite. He is morally bankrupt and the exchange with the host at the end indicates the contempt most pilgrims had for him. The film A Simple Plan develops the avarice theme to show how easily the American Dream degenerates into a nightmare when happiness is equated with material wealth “you work for the American Dream, you don’t steal it”. Raimi extends the story into a full length film, set in an iconic small American town, and focuses on the characters of and relationships between the three men, in a retrospective narrative framed by the voiceover of Hank, talking about what constitutes happiness and how one can tell if one is
Overall, “McCarthyism” did nothing but hurt the United States. It made the government act like a paranoid schizophrenic for years to come, and ended up wasting time, energy, and effort by the American people that could have been used in some other area of war. McCarthy wasted time with “—the social reforms that were never adopted, the diplomatic initiatives that were not pursued, the workers who were not organized into unions, the books that were not written, and the movies that were never filmed (Schrecker,
Michael continued to offer sanctuary for Mitsy and Sadako which shows great generosity in the act of true friendship during the heightening tension of the war. The falseness of the belief that foreigners can’t be trusted is woven throughout the plot. During the heightening of the war, Hart is bewildered whether Mitsy is actually his friend or not. The tension of the war puts him in a confused state of mind. The whites feared but despised the foreigners due to the mutter of the war.
Why they do this is unknown but it also adds to the rage.” But whatever makes these people drive this way, there’s nothing that can be done about it. You can honk at them, but it will have no effect. People have been honking at them for years; it’s a normal part of their environment. They have decided that, for some mysterious reason, wherever they drive, there is honking. They chose not to ponder this mysteries any further, lest they overburden there cashews”(49) this only makes things even worse cause of course it happens on the day you’re in a hurry.
