  • White To Tom

    The Working Class in Fitzgerald's "Great Gatsby" The first half of the twentieth century saw dramatic changes in the social structure of the United States. In the nineteenth century, it was relatively unusual in many parts of the country to meet a Roman Catholic - similarly odd to meet someone whose native tongue was not English. Anyone who fit these descriptions was likely to be unabashedly working class. Suddenly, however, the country saw an enormous influx of people whose backgrounds were ver...

  • John Travolta On The Other Hand
    1,594 words
    "White Man's Burden " The movie we watched in class was called "White Man's Burden". According to some sociologists the white man's burden is an unwanted burden that white men, who are in the upper part of society, must bring the minority classes up to their status.

This movie took a very unique approach. It ...
