This picture shows two types of platforms, the Democratic platform, and the Republic platform. On the Democratic side, there is a white man but on the Republican side there is a black man that is disfigured and features are overly exaggerated. This picture is trying to tell people the Republican platform is ignorant and not good while the Democratic platform is normal. They are showing otherness to black people and being racist because they are insulting their features by over exaggerating them and making fun of them. The person who made this also added descriptions of the titles of each platform. Each side is labeled for people due to their skin color. White men are only allowed to be democratic while black men are only allowed to be a Republican. This is separating the people and showing otherness and difference in both. In the book, To Kill A Mockingbird, anyone black that goes to court is told guilty even if they have good reasons why they are not. They have no choice in what happens.
Ever since mankind has been on this earth, women were always treated differently by some. "Women’s rights is the fight for the idea that women should have equal rights with men." (HistoryNet, Women's). Women are still fighting to this day for equal rights. One of the main issues is that men get higher pay then women even if they have the same job. The difference in paychecks could be slight or a major difference. Some women fight because they think they are being viewed as objects and not people. Because women are treated differently there are protests and marches that happen to fight against the sexist ways of some people. "Over history, this has taken the form of gaining property rights, the women’s suffrage, or the right of women to vote, reproductive rights, and the right to work for equal pay." (HistoryNet, Women's). This shows otherness because of the way women are treated differently than men in this world. Women are usually put down and not treated an equal to men. At one moment while Scout and Jem were arguing Jem told Scout, "Quit acting like a girl!" And that everyone hates girls.
Barbara Jones was an African American sixteen-year-old girl who went to Robert R. Moton High School, a segregated school. "On April 23, 1951, the principal was lured off campus, and all 450 students were called into the auditorium. After the students asked the teachers to leave, Barbara convinced her classmates that they should walk out until a new building was under construction.”(Zin Education Project). Vowing to boycott classes until the local all-white School Board addressed their complaints. Barbara and another student both addressed to an NAACP attorney who agreed to book a lawsuit seeking desegregation instead of only improving the facilities. VA Board of Supervisors refused to give money from the County School Board to the public schools. This rejection continued for five more years was a part of the Massive Resistance Movement, and closed the doors of the county’s schools. This story shows otherness because of how Jones was treated differently because of her skin color. Since Jones was black she was forced to be segregated and treated poorly by others. She then had enough and thought differently and stood up against the school. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout did not want to go to school anymore because she was not allowed to read or be taught how to read by her father. The unfair rules relate to this story.
