My Reactions Essay

857 words - 4 pages

I had many reactions throughout the article of Look Magazine. I was really surprised that Carolyn Holloway Bryant and Juanita Milam did not tell Carolyn’s husband Roy Bryant what had happened the day in the store but a colored person did tell Roy Bryant what had happened. I am also really surprise because the colored kids told Emmett Till to get with the white girl in the store and if the kids wouldn’t have told Emmett Till to go talk to her, then he would not have been dead. What Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam did to Emmett Till marked him as a coward and unjustifiable because that is how I looked at him when I read the magazine. How can two grown men come and kill a 14 year old kid. J.W Milam ...view middle of the document...

I was also astonished when Milam said “Well what else could we do? He was hopeless. I’m no bully; I have never hurt a “N” word in my life. I like “N”—in their place--I know how to work them” I was really astonished that Milam had never hurt a colored person and that Emmett Till was the first person he had ever hurt. I was also astonished when Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam were more afraid people would accuse them of stealing a gin instead of being afraid of killing a 14 year old kid. I was also astonished by what Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam said after they killed Emmett saying that the shoes were hard to burn. When I read the Editorials from look magazine I couldn’t believe what I was reading. An example that was really shocking to me was “To punish this story, of which no one is proud, but which was a certainly justified smack loudly of circulation hunting. Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam did what had to be done, and their courage in taking the course did is to be commended. This is was really shocking to me because I couldn’t believe Richard Lauchli the person who wrote this would say that Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam did what had to be done and it was ok for them to do it. Another example that I was...

Hand Dominancy and Reactions to Stimuli

1529 words - 6 pages when I was younger I was left handed and I eventually became right handed. Does that mean my reactions to stimuli will be the same on each hand?

I also believe if you “write” on ones hand, they’re dominant

Experiment On Reactions To Breaking Social Norms

1316 words - 6 pages about 10 adults I asked in a short period of time. This was a huge jump from only two or three gestures so far through out the whole experiment. I of course denied the money from everyone and continued to explain what it was I was trying to accomplish. I do believe if I was a few years older and looked the part of an older adult my reactions from them might not have been so generous but could not know unless tested. I was really surprised with the difference in help offered between the two age groups. I figure that someones social norms must change as they they get older and maybe feel obligated to help a kid in need. I learned much more than I thought I would with this
