“What literature has taught me about the effects of racism”


“What literature has taught me about the effects of racism”


“Kaleb Guthrie”

Its a little embarrassing but before this semester I didn’t know about residential schools; and I am a 16th native. The danger of silence gave me a whole new outlook on the statement “speak up.” Before listening to the danger of silence I had never thought about speaking you truth as in-depth as I did. Watching The Book Thief gave me a new perspective on the effects of world war and how there are always two sides of a story. Reading and watching Romeo And Juliet has shown me  that emotions, feelings and, culture can provoke a immense shift in anyones life and well being. Finally first they came for the jews thought me to speak up for not just myself but others as well. Over all this semester of English class has taught me Manny lessons and outlooks on life that I will use forever.

Tell Tail Heart -alternative ending in the point of view

The point of view I chose is objective

“officer there was a 911 call about some shrieking can you respond.”

“Yes operator I will bring back up just incase.”

The door opens the police officers are immediately greeted by a suspiciously hyper suspect. The police are given a tour around the house and they are lead into the owner of the houses room. They are sat down and left to chat. They don’t notice it but the man is sweating profusely, darting around very nervously, and mumbling almost silently. “They know they know they know.” He bursts out “I ADMIT THE DEAD!” He opens up the floor boards to reveal a dismembered corps.

What it means to be human…

Humans need to communicate

Humans need to understand others

Humans addapt to there enviroment

Humans seek knowledge

Humans are greedy

Humans sometimes strive to be a better society

My favorite TV series is Death note and I learned that power can take over your life and destroy you if your greedy.
