not top Sherlock Holmes in the public eye, than to Conan Doyle it was a failure (Carr 174-75). Although Conan Doyle never admitted it blatantly, Sherlock Holmes was at least partially based off himself. The biographer, Carr, found an entry of Conan Doyle’s journals where he writes about the resemblance between Holmes and himself. He also talked to his love and second wife, Ms. Jean Leckie, about it (Carr 206, 263). According to Adler, family constellation was not the only influential part of the
racist mother (O’Connor, par. 10). Describing himself to be “saturated in depression”, it becomes unmistakable that Julian feels resentful towards his mother for his upbringing and current position in life (O’Connor, par. 10). His mother, who takes pride in the way she raised him, reasons, “…if you know who you are, you can go anywhere”, prompting a quick disagreement from her son, where he argues, “[that’s] good for one generation only” (O’Connor, par. 16).

In this way, she evokes the classic contemporary theme of pride versus prejudice. Although both Jefferson and Grant are initially deaf to her pleas of reasoning, they slowly start to understand the intense intricateness of their situations. Grant understands that by helping Jefferson he can lay to rest a vicious cycle
or retelling the tale in a fresh way (see each and every version of Pride & Prejudice). In others, it's borrowing a phrase or notion, creating a homage to someone you admire (see just about every Martin Luther King speech). The acceptability of the text lies in its execution. Martin Luther King borrowed from texts he assumed people already knew, such as quotes from the Bible and the Declaration of Independence. Pride & Prejudice has been recreated many times, but the title and themes are still accredited
status and prestige of the group can attach to one’s self-concept. For example, if an individual identified with and showed support for the British National Team and that team won the Olympics then that individual would attach a certain belonging and pride in being British. By contrast however, if an individual is identified as belonging to a group whose members are obese this will not motivate that person to hold themselves in high regard or high self-esteem (Crandall 1994).
Asians during the late 1800s and early 1900s, such as the Chinese Exclusion Act, Asiatic Barred Zone Act, and Immigration Act of 1924, it is apparent that the American public and government were only continuing and reemphasizing previously present prejudices and deep-seated racism.
