In conclusion, this short story gives an insight into the racial segregation and the mutual hatred between two races, which continues in a vicious circle of never-ending hate and revenge. “Pay Back” is a prime example of the consequences of such a conflict as well as it illustrates that the hatred is primarily based on ignorance and lack of knowledge on account of strong
People who do bad things some of which are illegal and some legal for the purpose of accomplishing good ends are guilty of “Noble-cause corruption.” It usually occurs in circumstances where there is little chance of being held accountable. This happens most often with police work when people think that they can get away or hide these illegal This doesn't necessarily mean that there aren't laws against the action (though sometimes there aren't), but the individual who commits noble cause corruption either can't be held accountable or believes he or she won't be held accountable.
Isolation is the separation from others and/or society whether it be physically or emotionally. In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, I believe that a central theme is that the isolation from family and society, especially at a time when one is faced with difficulty, can have a negative effect on a person. The main characters in the story, Victor Frankenstein and the monster, both experience the same suffering of being alone in different ways. The negative consequences are the death of their loved one and eventually the end of their own.
In modern day civilization individuals do not understand what they have until what they desired so much in life is vanished. Individuals take for granted what they have and sometimes create their own misery by isolating themselves from the world and even from their own family in that matter. Isolation is created by one owns way of being, no one is actually pushing an individual away, those people are trying to bring those individuals closer in. In the novel, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley the character Victor Frankenstein constructs his own isolation when he becomes obsessed with trying to make a creation so grand that he forgets what is truly important in any individuals life.
Throughout their lifetimes, individuals encounter a variety of challenges that test their resilience. Sometimes it targets a person’s personality, beliefs, race or culture. It can follow an individual throughout their life or stay in it for a period of time. However, with a strong personality and a determined goal, these obstacles can be conquered. An example of an obstacle that can be a battle in everyday life is prejudice, mostly against the different types of race. Racism is the false conviction that one race is more unrivaled than the other which isolated the world to what it is today. It is a part of human nature, and unfortunately, many people don’t know their limits when it comes to it. Some other individuals, however, have internal conflicts with themselves which, in some situations, limits them from the world.
“Officer Jeronimo Yanez, charged with second-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of Philando Castile, a 32-year-old black Minneapolis man” (Capecchi). “Brian Encinia, former Texas trooper charged with misdemeanor perjury stemming from his arrest of Sandra Bland, a black woman who was later found dead in a county jail” (Almasy). “Sgt. Kizzy Adonis, charged with failure to supervise in connection with the 2014 death of Eric Garner, a 43-year-old black Staten Island man who died after police to administered a controversial choke hold” (Eversley). These are a few examples of the mistreatment suffered by young black citizens at the hands of police officers that resulted in the death of a suspect. Throughout the nation, the mishandling of the authority given to police officers has increased and is not merely coincidentally occurring.
To want change, it requires a vivid mindset. To envision that life is occupied with a multitude of differences. To understand that things may not go the way you would like it to.

The evaluation will help get a effective comprehension of cultural identity and intersectionality.
We are all humans, it doesn’t matter if you’re African, Caucasian, Spanish or wherever you come from. We are this one race trying to survive on this beautiful, strange planet. We shouldn’t be at each other’s throats but helping one another. When someone has a different opinion on something or isn’t like you, the best thing we all should do is try to learn from that person. You never know you might learn something new that you never know even existed. When we isolate are self from those who are different we are losing knowledge that could help us in the future. The person that’s different than you might be able to help you, they might know something that you don’t. ‘’ she remembered the sun and the way the sun was and the sky was’’, they had been on Venus all their lives, and they had been only two years old when last the sun came out and had long since forgotten the color”. The person that isn’t like you are only trying to help you understand what you don’t know and yet we as humans tend to push them away. We need one another comfort, ‘’ under the radiant towers, the floodlit ramparts, must have wondered at my impulse to touch her, which was like touching myself”. We can’t survive without each other, it doesn’t matter what race you are or where you come from we are all humans and we should look out for each
People want power because it gives them control and dominance over others. Power gives the person who has it the ability to do whatever they want, say whatever they want and make people do what they want. In the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller the whole plot revolves around the theme of power. There is a never ending conflict of characters to keep, assert and acquire power. The most prominent characters that ultimately hurt the community the most due to their greed and lust for power are Deputy Governor Danforth, Reverend Parris and Abigail Williams. Although their relationship with power is different from one another they all have one thing in common. Parris, Danforth and Abigail all contribute to the demise of Salem because of their
The body, mind, and soul of an individual are capable of becoming corrupted by power. Power makes one feel as if that person was a God, which is a sign of the corruption in that individual. According to Lord Actin, "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely," states that power can make an individual vulnerable to corruption. The second portion of Lord Actin?s quote discusses absolute power corrupting absolutely which implies that absolute power can corrupt an individual as well as the individual?s surroundings. This idea of corruption can be located in fictional novels such as Animal Farm by George Orwell. Animal Farm is a story about animals dictated by a former animal comrade. The dictator in the novel, Napoleon,
Often in today’s society people become “invisible” due to their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or social class. They are often shunned away or discriminated against because of these factors. The spirit of this book is defined by the will to overcome personal tragedy and social injustices.
What society thinks about yourself becomes important when you feel that people treat you in a different way. It is not about what you do, it is about how society judge you. In the article, “Beast of Burden” by Sunaura Taylor we have a story of a disable person who narrates how was her life since her childhood until now. On the other hand, there is another article, “The Arab Woman And I” by Mona Fayad which tells us about a lady who had to experience the opinions of others, society suppose her to be someone even when she does not want. The authors include examples, personal experience and rhetorical strategies to give us a better understanding. This text provides information of how is that society is the one who had been involved with the fears of people as time goes by.
Frantz Fanon argues the decolonization must always be a violent phenomenon because resisting a colonizing power using only politics will not work. Europeans justified colonization by treating it as gods work. They believed that god wanted then to occupy all lands and spread the word of god to savages of darker skin color. Fanon joined the Algerian Nationalist Movement when the Algeria was being colonized be the French. Many examples of violence written of in The Wretched of the Earth were taken from the struggle for independence in Algeria. Also the writing is sympathetic towards colonized natives. Fanon claims decolonization causes violent actions from both settlers and natives and creates intolerant
For instance, if we accept that discrimination is wrong within ourselves, then this injustice is less likely to happen, but if we believe that discrimination is right then this injustice is more likely to be repeated. We as humans are destroying our own peace and stability. We are creating division amongst ourselves with this injustice, leading our humanity to be more intolerant, offensive, judgmental, immoral and cruel. One the other hand, one way that this injustice can be controlled is if we change our attitudes and behavior. Awareness and acceptance of differences are crucially important to help stop this injustice. First, we must be more cautious about the way we speak and act, then we must respect other’s choices, wants and needs. One can’t stop this injustice alone but coming together can. Unification is key to overcome and end discrimination. We need to do it for our children, families, friends, communities, but most important for ourselves to create an environment where we can feel safe, free of unequal treatment and unfairness.
