Black Boy Essay?

Hellos

I occasionally post my school essays here and here is my recent one with Book called Black Boy by Richard Wright

I have two reasons for this post

  1. I havent posted anything in a while
  2. I want to see if Turnitin.com actually works (I think its BS)

Here we go!!!

    Everyone should “try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value” as Albert Einstein encouraged us to do, but that isn’t always easy for a black boy living in the South in the 1920’s? Richard Wright certainly did. In his autobiography, Black Boy, Richard goes through many hardships such as the heart attack of his mother and his move to Memphis that shapes him into the man he becomes. Although countless hardships hit Richard, only a few truly significant events turn Richard into the man of value that Einstein believes to be the man of true success.

    At an early age, Richard starts developing into better man. When Richard is seven years old, his ill mother had a heart attack. At such a young age, such an event can be a permanent shock to a child, especially when no one assumes the father figure role. However, Richard responds to this situation by becoming a young responsible young man. “[He] decided to sell [his] dog Betsy and buy some food”(pg. 69). Richard later worked for white families, and still managed to become valedictorian of his class despite his busy schedule. Adjusting to this new role at such a young age was hard for Richard, but it makes him a better person.

    Richard, after his graduation, gets tired of his life in Jackson, with harsh segregation, runs away to Memphis to escape the racism. Here he learns that segregation still exists, but he works harder to bring his mother to Memphis. “[He] saved each penny [he] came by, living on a pint of milk and two sweet rolls for breakfast, a hamburger and peanuts for lunch, and a can of beans“(pg. 226) Richard further develops his ability to become independent and responsible even in different environments.
After trial and error, Richard saves enough money to bring His mother and his brother to joins Richard in Memphis. Soon after Aunt Maggie also moves to Memphis after her husband who has abandoned her. Richard, as the oldest man in this broken family, takes responsibility and starts raising money to move to Chicago. They soon realize that they will never be able to reach Chicago at the rate they are saving up, decide to send Richard and Aunt Maggie. At such age Richard is able to handle such huge responsibilities as a father figure of his family.

    Richard’s level of responsibility is hard to find. Throughout his teen years, Richard, instead of giving up on his life, was able to create each obstacle into positive upbringing and becomes responsible young men. He was able to take care of not only himself but also his family members.

Hope you enjoyed it 🙂

WE are all WRONG……

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

Albert Einstein

I have always believed that Science should work to prove that Atheists are right, but after reading this quote the purpose I had define Science with has become an enigma to me, why does Science has to battle Religion?

Groundswell made by the Theist and Atheist are simple vituperative statements to bring each other down, and sometimes people like me, who are irascible, rants on about how Science is superior to Religion

But Science is nothing more than the study of nature and its building blocks, and Religion is no more than a moral guide written millions of years ago by some random dude or by “God“. So how it is that these to groups, Atheists and Theists, try to incriminate one another.

Both comes in nice dapper books, the penchant toward one subject or the other is made due to what you see or more importantly how you see the world. Only remnant list of things are found common between the two. there is no way either of the two views can accost each other of wrong doing. Both have dearth of evidence to prove each other completely wrong.

we have a predilection to preemptively not listen to other side of the story,

So where do we draw the line between, Science and Religion? This isn’t that hard. Simple infuse the practices of the two. Follow the moral values given by the religion of your choice, and create an eccentric list that seem paragon to you, and practice the scientific logical reasoning on day-to-day basis.

For centuries Science and religion has tormented each other, and that only caused fiasco in relationships among families and friends. We must stop this diatribe and work together and one big society.

This is not just a simple trivial matter, this requires much more attention that most of our friends and family are giving. We should be able to relish our lives on the face of the Earth, not fight till you die. All that will do will lead you to the life of forlorn. I been there, it’s not fun unless u enjoy them as much as I did.

Even after this epiphany I still firmly uphold my view of being Anti-religious, but now I will do so in more cavalier ways.

Last thing, if you have known me in the last few years or so, I have been a strong non-conformist….. I just compromised, I just made a RADICAL change in my opinion. Am I completely right? I don’t know, but I do know that This would allow me to create a life style that will make euphoria out of two completely unrelated instruments.
