The Perfect Fake Society

In my English class we chose three stories based on our thinking, these stories connect in some way.  The three stories are interesting because they are about inequality and race. “The Lesson” is a story about Ms. Moore who wants to teach the children about the socioeconomic issues happening in America. “ Everyday Use” is about the inequalities between two […]
