He suddenly started to write songs about his life and his high school nemeses. In 1997, the night before Em left for the Rap Olympics in L.A, Em had to break into his own house because there was an eviction notice and he had nowhere to go. Em had no heat or water or electricity. Forced to sleep on the floor, Em woke up angry and ticked off. There was this black guy in the front row of the crowd yelling ‘just give to the white boy.

They discriminated against him by forcing Crooks to live in a tiny shed across from their bunkhouse. Since Crooks was isolated because he was black, this led to him feeling very lonely. “‘S’pose you didn't have ... ... middle of paper ... ...vel Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, the author clearly shows how men treat each other unfairly through three of the story’s characters. Each character represented discrimination in a different way: through racism, sexism, and ageism. Crooks was excluded from activities because he was black, Candy was thought of as useless because he was old, and Curley’s wife was seen as a troublemaker because she was a woman.
Bigger can be described as an alienated character because he feels isolated from society and even his own kind. White folks cannot stand Negroes, especially the Bigger from the introduction of Book 1. Even the Negroes, including his family, are afraid of Bigger.

He is afraid of the consequences he’ll face if Mrs. Dalton knows he’s there, so he makes the wrong move and smothers Mary’s face with a pillow.
The stories were of the same idea, of a kid being bad and getting punished for it. But they weren't your butt slapping punishments like all the other kids got. They were kids locked away in basements for the rats to eat, getting sold on the street to dirty men, things to the degree only the grotesque mind could imagine such a horror. But when Wolfgang was really menacing or his dad was drunk he would tell the story of the kid in the closet. The kid in the closet story scared Wolfgang so much he wouldn't dare get near one.
Seriously, if someone dies, it affects the whole school. Like Chris Rock Says, “If you are at a movie theater and someone steps on your foot, let is slide, why spend the next 15 years in prison because somebody smudged your puma” (Chris Rock No Sex in the Champaign Room). In other words, don’t fight over reasons that can be settled in a game of twister. There are many causes of teenage violence, but I think it comes from their friends or family. For instance, if someone’s father, is a Nazi, and his dad was in the Ku Klux Klan, the student is of course going to inherit a hatred for Jews, and queers, like in the movie Porkys, where that one guy lost a fight with a Jew and then got beat up by his Dad, because he lost the fight.
Paul dreamed of living the life of the performers he saw. He was without discipline and without direction. He had problems at school and was surly when called before a school committee. Eventually he was pulled out of school and sent to work by his father. He devised a scheme to steal money from his employer and then ran away to New York City where he stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, living for a few days the life of his dreams.
They also put music on and dance around all over the library. One of the main characters John Bender, who they call Bender, is the criminal. He lights his shoe on fire to light a cigarette, he pulls apart books, and he steals the screw from the door that is suppose to be open so it closes and the principal can’t watch them. He ends up getting two months more of detention for telling of the principal by talking back to the principal. While that section of the movie is going on the camera angle makes the principal look really big because Bender is sitting down and the camera angle is angled up at the principal.
In 1968, Martin went to Memphis, Tennessee to help out the sanitation workers. They were protesting their deplorable wages and working conditions. One story says that two black workers were not allowed in the building with the white men while on break and when it started to rain they took shelter in one of the garbage trucks. The rain shorted out the mechanism that controlled the compactor and the men didn't have enough time to get out of the truck - they were crushed to death. On the morning of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, Martin Luther King, Jr. was assasinated by James Earl Ray.
