The African Americans also stick together in the beginning of the movie and also not wanting anything to do with the white players. The players eventually have to conform into one big team together. The whites had to become not only team mates but brothers with the African American players. Each race had to learn to love each other, and work together as a team in everything they did, whether if it was during practice, or out on that field playing the championship game. Both races have to go by the same standards, the same rules and same laws.
I felt a bit better when the general Robert Shaw said that if you receive less pay than all of us wont get any money. This made me feel better because even the generals were on the colored peoples side. I can relate the battle with any other battle that happened because all the troops men worked together and showed everyone that they could fight. I felt sad when the other Union generals army marched from war and made fun of the colored men. I felt this way because both the generals’ men were fighting against the Confederates so they should work together.
Yes, in that during a year marked by racial violence throughout the nation, an entire town took its cue from the football team and remained calm. It's not unusual in the sense that during this period many courageous black men and women, like Coach Boone, took risks to change society. Black young people, like Campbell, let go of their rage and forgave. Courageous white people, like Bertier and Coach Yoast, realized what was really important to them (in this case the team) and took principled but unpopular stands. This happened all over the South, perhaps haltingly at times, with backsliding often, but ultimately the actions of people like Boone, Yoast, Bertier and Campbell improved the lives of many people in that
Pathos As a slave, Truth bore many children with another slave. “I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me!” This segment of the speech connects with all of the mothers in the audience. It allows them to connect on a deep emotional level with not only the African American mothers but the white mothers as well. This joining of white and black together makes her speech appeal to a greater audience. Logos “Look at me!
In Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use” the use of symbolism is an effective tactic. The most obvious symbol is the two quilts, which the central characters Dee and Maggie both want as their own. The narrator, who is also Dee and Maggie’s mother, has an interesting dilemma on her hands. She must choose which daughter is deserving of inheriting the two quilts. The two quilts were pieced together by Grandma Dee and Big Dee, the narrator’s mother and sister, and made with the scraps from the dresses of Grandma Dee and bits and pieces of Grandpa Jarrell’s shirts and Great Grandpa Ezra’s faded blue piece from the uniform he wore in the Civil War.
These men were both very different in lifestyles, with one being black and one white, but they both wanted the same thing. Martin Luther king jr. was a black man who went through pain and suffering his whole life watching “his kind” be beaten physically and emotionally all because their skin color. John f. Kennedy however, was a wealthy white man that had no such problems such as Martin Luther king. John F. Kennedy saw what his country was doing to people like Martin, he knew it was wrong and he knew it had to come to an end. They both wanted equality for their nation.
3 April 2011 Dr. Wohl English Autumn Troubles When most people read the poem “Autumn Beings in Martins Ferry, Ohio” written by James Wright they want to think its about football, but in all reality its about people of all different races seem to escape from their ordinary everyday life just by supporting and watching a good game of high school football. This is a very short poem, but it gets its point across. Many people are quick to think that the poem is all about high school football, but they don’t see that this poem has several hidden metaphors that stand for greater and bigger messages. Through this poem, James Wright talks about a football game he uses; imagery, tone, and metaphors to show the big picture of these people living their life in the small town. First of all in the poem written by Wright, it deals with a lot of imagery that is short, but ends up painting a bigger picture in the poem, Throughout the whole poem Wright seems to paint a picture of the season fall, and the beginning of school, but looking more in depth to the poem images of something like “grey faces of Negroes in the blast furnace at Benwood,” (Wright 3) While reading this line it made me picture of unhealthy and overworked men.
Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney pictures produced the movie “Remember the Titans”. The movie deals with race discrimination on a football team, in two ways. The football team is racially divided, be-tween the blacks and the whites. It is based on a true story of the African American coach Herman Boone, who receives the job from the American Bill Yoast. It takes place on T. C. William’s high school and in Alex-andria in Virginia, and the environment is actually nice, it is very happy.
The straight answer to this could be simple like they could have several more African American sports stars in the 1950’s like Satchel Paige and even though in the book Jackie Robinson was downplayed, him as well. There also could have been numerous more African Americans involved in the medical field, like Vivien Thomas. On a lesser scale than baseball and heart surgery, in the narrative Fences what did institutional racism keep the characters from reaching. The most prominent scenario of this occurrence is Cory’s inability to join the football league in which he so desperately desired. If not for the fear of Cory being shadowed by his white counterparts on his team his father most likely would have let him join.
