The War Between The Classes-Essay
There are many different kinds of races, skin color, ganders and sex orientations existing in the society which we are living in. Though most people are appealing equality as much as they can, but discrimination is still hiding in our life. Especially the racial discriminate is mutual in each races. In the book “The War Between The Classes”, white rich men discriminate other races people. However, Amy’s father—–a Japanese man also prejudice white people. Two races are not accept each other. Because of any reasons, majority grope discriminate minority grope. This situation mad the hate and prejudice are sowed in minorities’ heart deeply. So that two gropes started grown apart. Majority grope and minority grope were prejudicing and discriminating each other. In the book “The War Between The Classes”, many details show that not only majorities discriminate minorities, but also they were prejudiced by minorities.
Writer didn’t show strangely that majority grope discriminates minority grope, but there are some details can tell us that this situation is existent even in a school. On the page 31, “For that matter,” the teacher continued, his attention back to the class, “How many of your black students have Latino or white friends? Friends, not acquaintances? And how many of you Latinos have black friends?” In the book “The War Between The Classes”, these classes are not living together equally. From the teacher’s spoking, we can know easily that he partitioned students for three classes, they are black, Latino and white, and the discrimination is in the school and this situation is about majority grope discriminate minority grope. On the page 15 “He is not like us. They are all the same, these hakujin. I work with them every day.” The speaker of that is Amy’s father. We can easy to know that Amy’s father is a bigot with white people. On the other hand, that demonstrates some white people are discriminating Amy’s father, and this causes Amy’s father have prejudice for them. Discrimination is happening between at least two gropes who discriminate each other. In the book “The War Between the Classes”, majority grope is one of those gropes. The grope they discriminate is minority.
Although majorities discriminate minorities, the latter don’t want to accept this situation. In the book “The War Between The Classes”, Amy’s father have some prejudices for white people. On the page 12 “This would never happened if you had been out with a Japanese boy,” Papa went on. “A Japanese boy would have had proper respect. He would have had you home on time!” Amy’s father believes blind that Japanese boy is better than a white boy for his daughter. This shows he has prejudice for white people. From his word, he think every Japanese boys are all would have had Amy home on time. The question is Amy’s father didn’t say “other white boys” or “other boys”, he said” Japanese boy”. So in his mind, Japanese boys are better than white boys. So he prejudice with white people. On the page18, Papa had not seen Hideo for nearly a year because Hideo had married without his consent. He had forbidden Mama and me to see him as well. As a human, if my son had married without my consent, then I will congratulate for him. Though he didn’t ask my consent, I will not forbidden my family to see him. Amy’s father’s behaver shows he has prejudices for white people. Majority grope discriminate minority grope, cause the latter produced hate and prejudices for majority. Amy’s father is good example for this. His co-workers discriminate him, so the prejudice even discrimination were born in his heart deeply.
In the book “The War Between The Classes”, because of majority grope discrimination leads that minority grope feel self-contemptuous. This emotion made minority grope deepen the hate and prejudice for majority grope. On the page 6, being the only non-white in his crowed, I didn’t always feel entirely comfortable. The word “non-white” shows Amy does mind that she is not a white people. Amy divides people with classes, they are white people and non-white people, and these two classes are not in the same status. She didn’t feel comfortable shows that she thoughts that non-white people has a lower status than white people. So she is self-contemptuous. On the page 9, “Are you one of them, or one of us? Do you know who you are and will you stand up for it, or are you gonna let everyone else call your shots?” Juan is same with Amy on this question. He thinks there are “white people” and “non-white people”. “One of them” and “one of us” show Juan thinks these two classes are apart. On the hand, he against white people, because he asks Amy stand with “us” but don’t stand with “them”. This emotion clearly shows he is trying to get in a same status with white people and avoid to be discriminated. Above all, Juan feels self-contemptuous. All minority people know that they are not the owner of where they are living, so they realized that they are not in a same level with majority people, this emotion produces self-contemptuous, and self-contemptuous breeds prejudice.
Whatever is white people, yellow people or black people. We all should equally to each other. However, characters in the book “The War Between The Classes” are not. Discrimination is growing apart them. Just like Mr. Otero said: “In a moment you’ll remove your color bands, but think how many people can’t remove theirs—their skin color, or the labels of poverty.”, it tells us that many people are living with discriminational suffers. This book shows us that discrimination is evil and contemptible, and appeals us stop it. In the book “The War Between The Classes”, writer just shows us how evil race discrimination is. However, there are not only race discrimination in the world, but also have ganders, sex orientations’ discriminations. If majority grope can’t stand in the same status with minority, the circle of discrimination will be endless.
