Everyone knows that the community is the one that is most affected by the issues of society. Through those three short stories that I read, “Everyday Use”, “ How to Date a Browngirl Whitegirl or Halfie” and “ Lesson” I notice that they do have a connection because in the three stories the authors try to convey the message about respect of each other and how people have to interact everyday. When I was reading those three stories I really felt that they were very interesting because the three authors use their main characters to show what was their main idea and life is a matter of high regard to others.

The authors use the literary element of the theme to demonstrate the similarities and differences in their stories . For example, “Everyday Use” the author uses the theme to display the way people understand their lives and how important it is to recognize what someone from your family did for you. Moreover, in the story “ How to Date a Browngirl Whitegirl or Halfie ” the author uses the main idea to teach us about even though a young boy dated girls from different races, he has to act with esteem in order to get what you want. In the “ Lesson” the author uses his characters to demonstrate the decision that Dee made complicated her status, but in the end she understood that she has to respect her sister. However, these three stories show some differences. For instance the three stories do not turn around to one main theme because at some point their main topic is different.
Additionally, in three short stories, the literary element that the authors use is the character to show the similarities and differences that their stories have. The three short stories show how their protagonists react to each other the way they should treat each other. For me, this tells us what really happens in society, how to treat people. The difference that those three stories illustrate is based on their characters because showing how their decision to make them suffer, however, in the end, they can not reach her goal.

Moreover, the authors use another literary element the voice to represent the style of the authors the quality that makes their writing unique. For example, in the tree stories, the authors use the voice to show different ways to make the reader feel something.in addition, The three authors tried to teach us one lesson that happens in society currently. Also, he wants to appeal to readers to wake up and make some changes about issues in society. The unlikeness between the three short stories the authors use the voice to demonstrate how their stories are very unique in their field. For example, in the tree stories, the authors use the voice to show different ways to make the reader feel something.The three authors tried to teach us one lesson that happens in society currently. Also, they want to appeal to readers to wake up and make some changes about issues in society. The unlikeness between the three short stories the authors use the voice to demonstrate how their stories are very unique in their field.

Finally, the three short story “Lesson”, “Everyday Use” and “ How to Date a Browngirl Whitegirl or Halfie” are alike because they demonstrate that everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal. Also, those authors transmit a message about how people respect each other because people do not have the right to dominate another one. Three authors want to teach the readers the realities of society. and the lesson that I can take away from that story is we can always alter people’s consciousness. Despite our social class, we can always be together.

    Dear Leticia,
    I am very satisfied by reading your post, “,Stories about Equality” because in this post you claryfie the main point of these stories and how they have similarity. I’m totally agree with you that these stories are taking about people right in our society. In our community there is so many people from differnt group and most of the time coming from the lower income family people does not geth their proper right and freedom.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “In the “ Lesson” the author uses his characters to demonstrate the decision that Dee made complicated her status, but in the end she understood that she has to respect her sister. ” from this line we all have to learn that no matter who you are or where you come from you have to respect everyone. All the people should deserve respecte from their place. Basically, Dee have everything and have the opportunity to get educated this is why she feel proude of herself and do not care about her sister becasue her sister maggie didn’t got all the opportunity as like her such as education but after at the end of the story we can see that Dee understant that she should respect her sister no matter how is she and her personality.
    I really enjoy reading your post and get to know more about this story from different prespective. Also, I’m agree with you that we should all respect each other.
    Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    Dear Leticia,
    I was really amazed by the manner you wrote your analysis about the three stories which you named “Stories about Equality” because you mentioned several sentences that were holding heavy meanings. I think that these sections shouldn’t be neglected but need to be talked about. The first line in your story is “even though a young boy dated girls from different races, he has to act with esteem in order to get what you want”. I really agree with this sentence because people these days live in different environments and possess different wealth and so comes the difference in behavior and manners. It is not really surprising that boys need to borrow strange actions when it comes to dating girls from different surroundings. The second sentence that I think should be taken in consideration is “Also, he wants to appeal to readers to wake up and make some changes about issues in society”. Most of the time we don’t realise it but some texts or stories are some kind of messages toward the reader. The third most highlighted part of your analysis, is when you mentioned “they demonstrate that everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal”. No one has any idea what life is planning for us and on behalf of that, everyone wants to treat as nice as they can so they will get the same treatment. Thank you for your analysis “Stories about Equality”. I really look forward to seeing what you will accomplish next

    Dear Leticia
    I am grateful for your literary analysis “Stories about Equality” because your analysis has relatives evidence of some cases that connect with some people in the U.S.A. This analysis is about education and inequalities that people face everyday.
    One set of the lines that stands out for me is “everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal.” This line describes the opinion that society needs to put on practice about the issues or differences between education and economics.
    Another sentence that I impacted was “I can take away from that story is we can always alter people’s consciousness. Despite our social class, we can always be together.”.This stood out for me because you explain your opinion about how you want to change society. These lines have strong words that change the mind of some people. These lines say no more restrictions, no corruption and more union of people.
    Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I hope you continue to post interesting analysis or texts like this one.

    Dear Leticia:

    I am facinating with your essay, “Stories about Equality,” because the way that you explained the three short stories and connected to the society issues was great. Also what you wrote in the end about people do not have the right to dominate another one its important because many people take adventage of others. One set of lines that you wrote that stands out for me is: “The three authors tried to teach us one lesson that happens in society currently. Also, he wants to appeal to readers to wake up and make some changes about issues in society.” I think this is a key line becasue we evolve every day nut our society is not perfect. I agree with what you say that the authors of the stories are encouraging us to make changes in society. Another sentence that I read was: “Finally, the three short story “Lesson”, “Everyday Use” and “ How to Date a Browngirl Whitegirl or Halfie” are alike because they demonstrate that everyone has the same love and we don’t know what can happen in our life, therefore, we should treat everyone with the equal.” This stood out for me because there is a lot of racisms in todays world and I do not understand why. Every single one of us are equal despite our herritage, culture, and religion. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the way you write and express yoursel is awesome.

    Dear Leticia,
    I am Choose an adjective glorious to show you my emotion that I feel when I read your story, “Stories about Equality,”. Your summary story was too emotional for me because it was much realist since I really appreciate the way that you write your stories by showing us what it makes our society to have inequality or division. However at end you bring us together by saying life is simple so we need to be together for a good evolution.
    One line that stands out for me is, “The difference that those three stories illustrate is based on their characters because showing how their decision to make them suffer, however, in the end, they can not reach her goal. ” I think this evidence is interesting because it conveys how much some people are just there to make you feel like you can not make instead that to help you to arrive at your ambition they are just there to judge you.. But you can prove them they are wrong because your life is your life nobody can not change your destination.
    Another sentence that stands out for me and it is fascinating is, “we should treat everyone with the equal.” This stood out for me because it is true and i’m argue with you since we have the same blood flowing in our veins why we judge ourselves instead the only real person who will judge us is God. so our right is to treat each person at the same level no matter what.
    Your story helps me to understand well the three stories and one of the stories that I once read in Africa called “Be Yourself ” that also talk about equality since they book are saying we all are the same no matter our colors . Since when something cuts us it is blood that came out so be white or black etc are the same organism living.
    Thanks for your summary of three stories. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Since I really enjoy reading your written style and tone that is clear for me then it helps me to open my mind about our society even though sometimes it is really hard for us to accept everything thanks to our bias . But I wonder if next time you can give us a deep conclusion? For more explanation, thank you.
