Socio Political Reality Racial Tension

Ku Klux Klan Blacks And Whites
1,794 wordsA living organization changes with time. Some parts of it may remain identical to that which was first constructed. Most parts will adapt to changes in the world, in society, and in mankind itself. If it does not change, it withers and dies. Organizations which fail to adapt to changes, whether they like it or not, tend to become shrunken relics of their original selves. They become mummified images of a once living creation. Such an organization is the Ku Klux Klan, better known as the KKK. The...

Sexual Tension Racial Tension

Rather, we are subject to envision the entire novel from behind the eyes of only one of these characters, Irene. At first, forcing the reader to suspend themselves in only one of these two complex minds may seem like a biased action on the part of the author. However...

Booker T Washington E L Doctorow
1,370 wordsIn the classic E. L. Doctorow novel, Ragtime, we see the juxtaposition of many motifs to represent Doctorow? s view of the early century. By combining history and fiction Doctorow allows himself to write a semi-accurate interpretation of the early 1900? s while also being able to strongly express his own biases and opinions of the era. The biggest, and perhaps most important theme Doctorow applies in the novel is social tension, or the battle of the rich versus the poor. Other important themes i...
