The situation is probably even worth, they do not like the context of life that they have to face in their everyday activities. The reasons to that are probably the fact that they do not look at their appearance fro...

1,414 wordsMisdirection of Anger Anger is better [than shame]. There is a sense of being in anger. A reality of presence. An awareness of worth.

The Bluest Eye shows the way that the blacks were compelled to place their anger on their own families and on their own blackness instead of on the white people who were the cause of their mi...
