The relationship between a mother and her daughter are often very complicated and conflicting. This is due to the different mindset of both mother and daughter, the mother being raised differently by her parents and not being able to communicate well enough to understand each other. This can be seen in Amy Tan’s “Two Kinds” and Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use”. “Two Kinds”, by Amy Tan, illustrate what life is like for many foreigners in America who are trying to give their child the opportunities they most likely did not have themselves as children. June says, “My mother believed you could do anything you wanted to be in America. You could open a restaurant. You could work for the government and get good retirement…You could become rich.” (446) Suyuan is an Asian immigrant from China who believes that anything is possible in America, unlike China where she had runaway to be safe. June on the other hand, was born in America and became strongly influence by the American culture. We can start to see the struggle between this mother and daughter due to this cultural division. Also the mind set of Suyuan and June is because there is a generation gap; this is one of the reasons why June doesn’t understand her mother and the way she thinks. “Everyday Use”, by Alice Walker, illustrate what life is like for minorities in America who took full advantage of the opportunities given to them and resulting in a negative change of behavior. Mama says, “Sometimes I dream a dream in which Dee and I are suddenly brought together on a TV program of this sort…There I meet a smiling, gray, sporty man like Johnny Carson who shakes my hand and tells me what a fine girl I have.” (394) Mama is a loving mother who cares for both her daughters, Dee and Maggie. Mama seems to be favoring Dee more because she was able to further Dee’s education and allowing Dee to move up in society. The relationship between Mama and Dee is conflicting now that Dee has become a different person and being exposed to the outside world. Both stories involve the relationship between a mother and her daughter. “Of course you can be prodigy, too,” my mother told me when I was nine, says June. (446) June and her mother struggle because June wants to see herself as fully American and her mother sees her as “Jing-Mei,” a Chinese American girl.

Religious Attendance and its Affect on Feelings toward Homosexuals
For a long time, it has been known that the more religious an individual is, the less likely he/she would be to have positive feelings toward gay men and lesbians. This is because many religious ideologies characterize homosexuality as a sin. Religion is usually introduced to one at a young age so those attitudes and beliefs would stick with a person despite a changing society, like the…

I have learned that the United States is very diverse in everything. Not just people, but culture and religion too. There are so many different cultures that live in the United States today it makes my head spin.

The seemingly innocent act of downloading music for free isn’t just hurting the music industry, but it’s morally wrong for people to do it. When we are children, we are taught not to steal candy for the store, copy a paper from someone else, or to take a CD from a music store. I think we can agree throughout are society it is immoral to steal, but people still don’t see the ethical issues with downloading music illegally. Many people think illegal downloading is like…
I think of capitalism as an economics system that is controlled by individuals and private companies instead of the government. In capitalism individuals and companies own and direct most of the resources used to produce goods and services. People are free to decide how they will earn and spend their income. Companies can decide what goods and services to provide and how much to charge for them. I took this picture while making a quick stop at the bank. I thought Chase bank represented…

Native Americans have had a long and trying journey since the discovery of America. Throughout the course of history they have proven to be driven, fearless, and in many cases even helpful. As we explore the history of the Native Americans through six different events we will see how wars, breaking of peace treaties, and restrictions on their spiritual beliefs forever changed the Native American’s role in America.
First I will like to talk about the Nez Perce people who are Native American people…
Final Research Project
The United States does not provide health care to its citizens the way the rest of the industrialized world does. Instead of guaranteeing coverage for all, it relies on a patchwork system of market-based institutions in which those who are insured sometimes receive coverage as a condition of employment, sometimes purchase individual policies and sometimes obtain coverage through public programs such as Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program…
