  • White Mother And A Black Father
    1,363 words
    I was late for school, and my father had to walk me in to class so that my teacher would know the reason for my tardiness. My dad opened the door to my classroom, and there was a hush of silence. Everyone's eyes were fixed on my father and me. He told the teacher why I was late, gave me a kiss goodbye and left for work. As I sat down at my seat, all of my so-called friends called me names and teased me. The students teased me not because I was late, but because my father was black. They were too...

    In reading bell hooks' opinion about sexism and misogyny I had to admit to myself that I had no idea what she meant by sexism and misogyny. So, to accurately know what she was referring to, I looked them up on the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. For the word sexism, I found there were two meanings that support hooks' ideas: 1: prejudice or discrimination based on sex; especially: discrimination against women and 2: behavior, conditions, or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles bas...
  • Lot In The Story
    649 words
    I had read this story once before when I was a freshman at a branch campus of Penn State called Behrend. I read it for a literature class dealing with short stories and their analy zation. I didn't really like the story back then, and it really hasn't moved-up any spots on my list of favorites. Although I really didn't care for the story, I did notice quite a bit of symbolism throughout the book. Conrad seemed to use black and white as his main source of color symbolism. Just as in the old weste...

  • One Final Incident The Richard

    In the book Black Boy, we see many black people in the south dealing with many hardships. One of the most prominent problems for blacks seemed to be the 'Jim Crow' laws.

They had to call all white men 'sirs' and all white women 'ma " am'. They couldn't act the slightest bit superior to whites. It was ...

  • New Outfit And Brand

    I was in math class on a Thursday. It was raining pretty hard. I was wearing a brand new outfit and brand new shoes. My outfit was black and purple. My new shoes were black boots. I had two pair of socks on also, one black and one purple. I thought I was the best thing there. I felt so pretty. Everyone was flirting with me. Everyone including the guys that never gave me a second look before. Class was normal; people throwing paper wads and chock. After class, there was always this race to the do...
  • Black And White People

    What is a classic? One definition given by the dictionary is: having lasting significance or worth; enduring. When examined closely we can discover what makes the novel unique and memorable. There are many important messages in Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird, which make it memorable to the reader. The main message in this novel is about racism, how people around you, not just parents have a strong influence on you when you are growing up, and how rumors and misjudging can make a person look ...

  • Middle Class Neighborhood

    In this large city of ours situated on big spinning ball, inside a vast galaxy, and even larger universe. We sometimes tend to leap out into the unkown embracing and fearing life on other planets, when we can not embrace life or learn not to fear life on our own planet. We as a society have formed our own barriers when those placed upon us have been removed. We rarely see mixed neighborhoods outside of large cities. Even in our own borough we can see this; for example Borough Park is mostly Reli...

  • Blacks Back
    989 words
    'To Kill a Mockingbird' is a perfect book to use as an example to show what racism was in America in the 20's and 30's. In America, life was very different in the 20's and 30's. Sure, televisions were just appearing and technology in general wasn't nearly as advanced as it is today. These points however, though relevant, are not relevant to my point. No, I'm really focusing on racism in these first few decades of the century. 'To Kill a Mockingbird' has a town called Maycomb in it, and this town...
  • Black Hole The Photon Sphere
    5,168 words
    Black Holes. Fact or Fiction? Over the years black holes have been portrayed as portholes to other dimensions or times, gates across the galaxy, objects of death and destruction, or all of the above. Black holes are real, that is one of the few things that we do know about them for sure; we also believe that we have a firm grasp on how they are created and what they do, but their purpose still remains a mystery. What is a Black Hole? To answer that question right off: a black hole is an area in ...

    Clarett: The crime doesn't fit the punishment By LELAND STEIN Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett, accused of lying to NCAA and school investigators, will be suspended for the entire season. He supposedly overstated the cost of merchandise that was in a rental car stolen from him and the NCAA blew a gasket because he received benefits because of his football celebrity. This whole scenario has left me confused like a deer caught in speeding headlights. I've read and read as much information a...
  • Next Door To Fabian
    2,623 words
    Oranges, Disney World, and hurricanes- the first three things to come to Fabian's mind when he thought of the most boring place to grow up- southern Florida. Let's face it, Florida can collectively be summed up as Home to the Happiest Place on Earth. Those Disney jerk-offs had commercialized their theme park so much that every child wanted his or her family to drop what ever they were currently doing in their lives, pack up the van, and take a fun-filled family vacation. That's suburban America ...
