154-155). Upon hearing about the chaos in town due to the mention of a white actor bringing a black woman to integrate the movie theater, Lily expresses her hatred for racism. Prior to this, Lily was also faced with prejudice towards herself, something she had never experienced. “I am not one of you, I thought” (p. 111).

In the reading “Hip-Hop’s Betrayal of Black Women” by Jennifer Mclune, she exclaims in today it is wrong to categorically dismiss hip-hop without taking into serious consideration the socioeconomic conditions (and the many record labels that eagerly exploit and benefit from the ignorance of many young artists) that have led to the current state of affairs. This article contains three major divisions that support Mclune’s argument in this article, and she goes into dept explaining her argument. She wrote the article base off her feelings and how hip-hop down grade black women.

Angry whites in the South during this period of time would go to any measure to satisfy their hate for an individual of a different race. Rosaleen really changes during this trial; she becomes bitter towards whites, even towards Lily, whom she is close to.

Because of this incident he stopped talking to either of his parents and was withdrawn for the first time in his life. “Chris's smoldering anger, it turns out was fueled by a discovery he'd made two summers earlier, during his cross-country wanderings...

Newton is to educate on the issue of discrimination in the work place and political affairs. Newton believes that discrimination is unjust and that all those affected by it can suffer greatly. She also believes that if there is too much awareness for discrimination and that it can lead to the issue of reverse discrimination. Reverse discrimination is when the awareness for discrimination becomes too high, then the group being discriminated against receive almost a form of special treatment where they start to get more rights than the initial discriminators who are now receiving the discrimination.

The publicity of the case and the one-sided role of the media caused a majority of people, internationally, to be biased and influenced. This impact then led to numerous problems and difficulties in being treated fairly, such as finding an impartial jury. This factor of having preconceived idea meant that the jury had already decided Lindy Chamberlain’s fate, opposing the justice being “served,” legitimately. Wiping away any chance for Lindy Chamberlain to prove her innocence creates an inevitable outcome. The Chamberlains being judged under a heavily biased jury influenced by the media, therefore shows the maltreatment of the case by the justice system and the society.
