Because of this racism and prejudice, the decision of Atticus’ to defend this man (who would certainly be killed without a lawyer because he is black and the accuser is white) is widely discussed in the town. Atticus seems to take all the criticism and name-calling well and sticks to his belief. Atticus also seems to want to influence his children’s thoughts and attitudes towards colored people by hiring an African-American maid, Calpurina. He pays her a normal wage, one that a white maid would receive, and treats her with the same respect he
The real reason he was being so obnoxious was because he had issues with his teenage son which effected his opinions about teenagers. That is why he was voting guilty throughout the movie. No one knew about his son, and background so they had no clue why he was so obnoxious. When juror #3's emotions were revealed everyone knew why he was so angry and that changed everyone thought about him.
And Walker has been accused of reinforcing racial stereotypes in her depiction of male black characters as abusive and violent.”(2) Yet, such as in the story there are controversies over how Walker expresses herself in the book there are purposes for her strong words and intense images. For Instance the story introduced itself with strong words and intense images: “Dear God, He acts like he can’t stand me no more. Say I’m evil an always up to no good. He took my other little baby, a boy this time. But I don’t think he kilt it.
When asked why Albert beats her by his son Harpo, Albert replies with ‘cause she my wife. Plus she stubborn’ (P. 22). This shows how women are labeled as less of people than men, and are thought to be less smart and useful as men. Bromden: Experiences racism by fellow patients in the ward and the ‘black boys’ who work
His lack of morality and faith, his rejection in the belief of the same moral equanimity that Delia fosters in, frees him from the constraints of personal or communal responsibility. When the men around Joe Clarke's store porch gossip about Delia and Sykes, they all agree that men like Sykes operate on a law of morality that is all their own. As Clarke expostulates: "Taint no law on earth dat kin make a man be decent if it aint in 'im" (886). Syke's flouting of these "laws" locates him as a character of supreme evil, for, like the devil who also flouted God's law, Sykes pursues sex and women with equal fearlessness. His mistreatment of Delia also reveals his contempt for his wife and what she represents.
Grendel adapted because of the way he was treated by society which ultimately led to his destructive behavior. He wasn’t given a chance to conform to society because he was judged. His aggression was due to jealousy and loneliness. Grendel will always be seen as a monster because he comes from that culture. A world full of monsters, hate, violence, and evil.
He is, in fact, the victim—a victim of discrimination. By using the word “victim,” he has accepted the social perception that he is a perpetrator. With obvious disdain, he comes to realize the “unwieldy inheritance” of being born into a race with the unwarranted “ability to alter public space.” At this point in his life, he dislikes what he was born into because he is tired of people categorizing him as a mugger, rapist, and any other criminal without even knowing who he is truly. He thought of himself as a gentle and soft guy, and he is disgusted that people typecast him into this stereotype. In his first year away from home at the University of Chicago, he states that he became familiar with “the language of fear.” He is not referring to actually speaking it, but the behavior that is communicated through body language.
His behavior and outlook on life are influenced by how his mother raises him. In Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “Everything that Rises Must Converge”, Julian and his mother maintain conflicting personal views surrounding the status of African-Americans in 1960’s society. Mrs. Chestny closely associates herself with the time period of plantations and slaves but says that she “can be gracious to anybody” (O’Connor 1017). Julian, on the other hand, believes his mother is a flat-out racist and almost feels the need to apologize to African-Americans for his mother’s behavior and attitude. Despite these clashes of perspective, the main conflict between mother and son derives from Julian’s inability to put his pride aside, accept the sacrifices his mother made for him, and move on from his lack of success in the real world.
They stole our chance to have the ability to help shape and guide mankind into natural, peaceful ways of life. Men have used their brut and strength to become the upper hand; typical of them to do so. They used us as their personal slaves putting us into the stereotypical roles we still hold today as cleaners, and cookers, and scrubbers, and launderers and so on. They have clumsily and selfishly created a world filled with hatred and pointless violence. Most men are angry, vile, and perverted creatures who have no sympathy, compassion or a care in the world except for their own.
