This is a piece by one of my favorite artists, and some of you may know who he is. He has a YouTube Channel called Vexx, and he creates many works that I plan on buying. I chose this picture because it was a 6 person collaboration, meaning 6 artists (including himself) worked together to make this piece. This to me represents equality because no matter where you are or what color or sex you are you are the same thing under your skin. I feel like this is represented by the 6 outstretched hands working to make the earth. Each hand represents a background, and all the backgrounds come together to make a work of art. This relates to the world because we see men, women, Jewish people, black people, white people, come together to achieve a common goal in life.
"The issue of women’s rights is a global issue." (Josephine Monger) Similar to racism, gender equality is a large problem. Women all over the world have been fighting for equal rights as men and without prevail. "Let us remember that the fight is not over." This article talks in depth about how women have to work twice as hard as others to earn the same as a man could; and that they are fighting hard for the same rights as men. This is similar to "To Kill a Mockingbird" because scout is held to the standard of becoming a woman when she just wants to be a kid. It also relates because women are held to be pretty and have manners and so much like a princess, but some don't want to act like that and are discriminated for because of it.
Racism is a very large problem globally, and people who are being racially discriminated are beaten, verbally abused, and worse. "One student, John Greenwood, 19, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and second-degree aggravated harassment". Clearly, people are discriminated everywhere, even in the nicer areas such as an Ivy College. Those who try, are trying to do good and to unite us as one. "Pollack said in a statement. “Please speak out against injustice, racism, and bigotry and reach out to support one another. Ours must be a community grounded in mutual respect and kindness.” This relates to "To Kill a Mockingbird" because even after racism peaked and declined, it is still here. Violent acts upon people have always been here because of their language, religion, sex, or race. As much as some people would like it to stop, it won't. Racism will always be a part of our life, whether it be discriminatory or violent. However, there is something we can do to help with this issue. We can speak out against discrimination when we see it and peacefully protest for change.
