Racial Perspective Analytical Essay English Literature Essay


This essay has been submitted by a student. This is not an example of the work written by our professional essay writers.

Racism is a lone thought presented by a lone person, equality is a united thought presented for all. "I would make his life more intelligible to others than it was to himself. I would reclaim his disordered days and cast them into a form that people could grasp, see, understand, and accept." This quote describes Richard's motivation for his biographical sketch of Ross, the black Communist. Richard regards life in general as a fundamentally meaningless swirl of pain and suffering. To him, the most exciting experiences in life are attempts to create from this chaos something with form and order-in his case, writing, ideas, and art. But Richard is not a vain intellectual, and does not want to sit at home and read books for his private pleasure while the world suffers. Rather, as we see in his attraction to the ideals of Communism, he is profoundly concerned with the fates of other people. Richard's faith in creative art and his concern for the public good come together in this passage. He wants to reclaim and reinterpret his "disordered days" not just for the private joy of creation, but also so that other people can understand and accept what he creates. Moreover, this passage outlines the outcomes Richard believes biographical writing can accomplish, offering insight into what Wright hoped to accomplish with the writing of Black Boy: to reorder his own past and come to understand himself, not merely for his own sake, but for our sake as well.

Racial perspectives are built by past wrongs not rights. "People look at me and see my brother." Daniel Vinyard types this on his screen when asked to write an essay about his brother. The constant use of flashbacks in the movie provides the audience with a feeling sorrow for Daniel as his older brother is repeatedly seen killing two black men. The public view of his brother has led all to believe he is a neo-Nazi with the past intentions of his brother. As the movie progresses his brother, after serving three years in jail, which he was the minority, attempts to convince Daniel not to take the same path he once took. The beginning of the movie the Neo-Nazi perspective is rich throughout but as the movie progresses the experiences encountered have crafted a perspective upon Daniel to stop following the path he is following. The turning point in the movie is the striping of the room which Daniel and his older brother shared; it symbolizes the transition from 'evil' to 'good' but appears too late as tragically Daniel is gunned down at school by a black gang member.

To conclude, each text holds a racial perspective that is hard to break; these perspectives have been influenced by past experiences and life choices. Unity cannot be achieved without equality; this is evident in all three texts. To understand the perspective of one, you must experience it first hand; Derek Vinyard being the minority within a prison heavily occupied with black men who Derek began out to demise and despise. Now having an experience can understand the hardships that other races have gone through and develop a new perspective on racial differences.
