Elizabeth Catlett And Other Artists At The Taller De Graffica

- The idea that art can be a service to people- most importantly a service to poor and disenfranchised people is one that may be disputed by some.

Doubles in Fight Club and Cofer's The Other

- Doubles in Fight Club and Cofer's The Other        In the current age of technology and capitalism, many people get caught up in trying to define their individuality with mass produced goods.  In David Fincher's movie Fight Club, the narrator, who is commonly referred to as Jack, invents an alter ego to serve as a source of substance in the hallow world of corporate America. This alter ego, named Tyler Durden, is portrayed as a completely psychologically and physically separate being throughout the movie.  The inherent polarity in personality between these two personas proves to be a crucial point of interaction between the two characters, and is the basis for most of the action...   [tags: Fight Other]

Cultural Appropriation : Art And Other Manifestations Of Human Intellectual Achievement

- Cultural Appropriation Culture is the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively. Cultural appropriation, the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of another culture, has become extremely overused and has lost all meaning in our society. What started out reasonably (i.e. to prevent racism) has morphed into selfishness and complete idiocy (i.e. preventing the usage of inventions like canoes).[7] Cultural appropriation had a low, steady amount of attention until late 2013, when the topic exploded.[4] Eradication of cultural appropriation is impossible and even if it was possible, it would be detrimental to our civilization....   [tags: Black people, White people, Race, Culture]

The Other Boat

- The Other Boat Who am I. Why do I do what I do. When can I break the rules of society without being guilty. In the unique agony of seeking understanding, acceptance, and love, these several questions echo poignantly throughout human history. For all people these introspective problems—while difficult—desperately need answers, as answers to these questions dictate the choice to stay within the bounds of accepted ethics or to step out. The importance and difficulty of finding good answers to these questions intensifies for atheists and agnostics, since they must formulate answers with the full responsibility for their conclusions resting on their own shoulders....   [tags: Other Boat Edward Morgan Forster]

The Warmth Of Other Suns By Isabel Wilkerson

- In “The Warmth of Other Suns” by Isabel Wilkerson, the three main characters that the story follows face a great deal of inequality and racial prejudice in both the Jim Crow south that they left and the north that they fled to. Through their stories, as well as the excerpts from Wilkerson that serve to dispel some of the common myths and to explain some of the inequalities that others faced, one is able to make many connections between the problems that Ida Mae, George Starling, and Richard Foster, among many others, faced in their time and the obstacles to equality that our society still to this day struggles to overcome....   [tags: Black people, Race, African American, Racism]

Should People Living in more Affluent Countries Have the Moral Obligation to Provide for the Poor in Other Parts of the World

I will first outline the basic premise of Singer’s argument supporting this moral obligation and whether it is a sound argument. Secondly, I will look at an alternative view provided by Garrett Hardin in his paper, “Living on a Lifeboat”, which suggests that maintaining one’s own self-interest is more important and, in fact, necessary to prevent our own downfall....   [tags: analysing Peter Signer's argument]

Black People And The Civil War

- During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Black people were attempting to rise up and become equal with every other citizen in America. They were having an increasingly hard time working their way into politics, local storefronts, and owning property. Everything that reconstruction worked for was being destroyed before their very eyes. Segregation was continuing to be a problem as time moved on after the Civil War. Following after the beginnings of the “Farmers Alliance” which began in Texas in the late 1870s (Foner 510), the Black people followed suit and created the Colored Farmers’ Alliance in 1886; since they were not able to join the other alliance solely because of their skin color....   [tags: Black people, White people, United Kingdom, Race]
