  • Discrimination Faced In Nat Turner, By Kyl Kyle Baker

    numerous advances in medicine and technology over the centuries but a society as advanced as the U.S.A cannot get passed the skin color of a person. The discrimination that blacks face on a daily basis is far from over though it is not as obvious as it used to be. Gone are the days when signs were put up prohibiting blacks from riding on the same bus as whites.

  • The Role Of Ignorance In Nat Turner, By Kyle Baker

On the other hand, ignorance is much more detrimental and can be defined as not having a willingness to learn and educate ourselves on things that are crucial to humans. These crucial things can be as basic as writing and reading. We cannot always attribute ignorance to willingness, but also other external…

  • Themes In Ernest Hemingway's A Clean, Well-Lighted Place

    The titular clean, well-lighted place is seen as a place of refuge for the old man and the older waiter, who face down the barrel of existential depression. Their fear of ‘nothing’, described by Baker as being “so huge, terrible, overbearing, inevitable, and omnipresent that, once experienced, it can be never forgotten”, can never be truly alleviated, only stymied (Baker). The clean, well-lighted place serves in this capacity for the characters, but is additionally a symbol for similar places…
