Once they got home and were having the locks changed, Jean became immediately angry they sent a “gang member” and wanted the locks changed in the morning. Because of his appearance, which consisted of a shaved head, “prison” tattoos and pants hanging off his butt, she was positive he would go sell the keys to his “amigos.” These somewhat inaccurate stereotypes by Jean were supported from historical and socially constructed events. Since most men who are imprisoned are African American, to Jean and other members of society, this means all black men are criminals and one must be fearful of them. As for the Mexican locksmith, he must be a part of a gang and looking for trouble if he has tattoos and his pants
Explore the ways in which Bronte uses the motif of Dogs in ‘Wuthering Heights’ In ‘Wuthering Heights’, Bronte uses the motif of dogs throughout the novel both symbolically and to present imagery. The dogs, like the Earnshaws and the Lintons, are related, suggesting that the family’s actions in the novel are savage and animalistic (like the dogs). Dogs figure in multiple scenes such as the opening scene when Lockwood tries to enter Wuthering Heights and finds not only several locked gates but also a pack of dogs preventing his entry, "two hairy monsters" with the names Gnasher and Wolf who attack Lockwood. Their lack of hospitality can therefore symbolically relate to Heathcliff, as he is described as a “mad dog” and “savage beast” throughout the novel. The use of dogs in the opening chapter of the novel, further suggests that dogs will be important figures in the novel.
In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, the mad dog in chapter ten represents the unseen prejudice in the town of Maycomb. At this point in the book, Jem and Scout are playing outside when they notice Tim Johnson, the dog of Maycomb, making his way towards them. He does not seem normal, so the children go home to tell Calpurnia. When Calpurnia questions them about the dog, Jem answers that “he’s just moseyin’ along, so slow you can’t hardly tell it. He’s coming this way” (93).
Unlike Gogol’s other short stories it employs a first person narrative, Diary of a Madman, We as readers accompany the protagonist’s descent into madness. He begins to believe that two dogs can speak and have been corresponding with each other through letters. As the story continues forward, his dates become nonsensical, using such dates as “Marchember”, “No date, today had no date”, and “April 43rd in the year 2000”. On this day in April, Poprishchin comes to believe that he is the king of Spain and must walk around incognito so that the peasants will not know who he is. Although this absurd situation is humorous and presented to the reader as such, the story, in the end, is an unsettling one.
The first encounter that Moses had with God started at the burning bush. Through Moses and Aaron, God sent many plagues upon the Egyptians. He also used Moses to part the Red Sea so that Israelites can travel to the other side. Moses spent a lot time with God on Mount Sinai and there, God revealed himself to Moses. The fact that God did is significant because Moses requested it.

He is not hiding why doesn’t want to visit his family. When Fanton was a young boy his brothers hunted him and taunted him, as said in the story “He was startled by the sound of Peter roaming his name. The summons might have meant anything from “Mom wants you for dinner” to “prepare for a beating”” or “Over the years they have bloodied his nose, pulled down his pants and squeezed the sides of his lips while forcing him to repeat “I’m a pretty baby” over and over again”. Therefor when Fanton lost his favorite model car he was quick to blame his brothers, accusing them for taking it and hiding it his reaction is described like this in the story:”Fintan went to the kitchen and threw the only tantrum of his life. While his mother and brothers looked on, he shrieked, stamped, broke a dish and went stiff as a corpse”.
It is said in many scriptures in all religions that God will punish non-believers and heretics so why would people take matters into their own hands. I believe these people should be punished by God for such immoral acts. This violence is too excessive and is unjustifiable by any means. Religious violence and any other type of violence (except self-defense) can never be morally excused. Everyone in the world agrees that the action of Adolf Hitler in the Holocaust was an abomination and inexcusable.
