Atticus Finch has been deemed a hero of justice, a mythological paragon of social activism. But although Atticus admirably defended Tom Robinson. He was no antiracism activist. First, Atticus did not volunteer to defend Tom Robinson; he was given a court order to do so. Then there Atticus’s complacence to racism, clearly portrayed in his confession (regarding defending Tom): “I’d hoped to get through life without a case of this kind…” This is not to dismiss Atticus’s fine attributes: He is a good father, treats all (black and white) with respect, and practices patient humility.
‘‘The Gilded Six-Bits’’ is a story of love, betrayal, and forgiveness. It playfully portrays the happy domestic life of two young newlyweds and shows the havoc that is wreaked when a slick and sophisticated outsider comes into their community and into their home. The story is typical of Hurston's fiction in that it offers a positive and affectionate vision of African-American life, that it is set in her native town of Eatonville, and that it reflects the rich oral traditions of that community. ‘‘The Gilded Six-Bits,’’ rich in metaphor and melodious dialect, is a meditation on the meaning of value and a celebration of emotional resilience and integrity. The Gilded Six-Bits" is a story about a young couple who live in a small Negro settlement
Its clear Gatsby and Daisy have some unfinished business no one likes to be the third wheel. When Gatsby specifically says show her around I think she must be a girl who loves money and he thinks he can win her back by showing her expensive things. 60WORDS Chapter VI: ‘’So he invented just the sort of jay Gatsby that a seventeen year old boy would be likely to invent , and to this conception he was faithful to the end.’’ (pg.104) This explains speak much. Gatsby is a little liar but why does he feel he has to lie about his past life. He even lied about his real name like that’s childish.
Racism was not a thing of Atticus and he raised his children alone to feel the same way. Atticus took on a case of a black man verses a white man; however, he knew that a black man will not win against a white man if a white man is calling the shots. He knew this well. Nevertheless, Atticus refused to give up soulfully because he strongly believed in all men being created equal. Atticus taught me that equality comes first.
“The Wife of His Youth”: Reuniting African American Culture Charles Chesnutt is one of the most widely respected African American fiction writers of his time. Born in 1858 with mixed blood, Chesnutt had the advantage of being associated with others like him, who generally speaking, were more white than black. Chesnutt’s pale skin, education, and hard work allowed him many great opportunities, one of which includes being a published writer. Although Chesnutt was a very privileged man whose skin tone helped contribute to his success, some argue that Chesnutt did not agree with the way society discriminated against race and complexion. Many also argue that Chesnutt’s position on race and separation is the very thing that helped to fuel his writing.
