in the African American community as someone who has sold out their heritage and beliefsn order to be successful After reading the book I don t think I can adeuately express how STRONGLY I disagree with that characterization I would place Uncle Tom among the pantheon of truly HEROIC figures Chipper: More Than a Miracle in American literature Granted Tom was no Hollywood suare jaw who ard up and went Braveheart on the slave holders slaughtering them by the bushel However he was most definitely a HEROn the mold of Gandhi who NEVER ONCENEVER ONCE compromised his principals and belief Doctor Who: Combat Magicks in non violence and Tom CHANGED those around him both white and black for the better Tom s non violence came not from fear or cowardice but from his deeply held Christian faith and his belief that he would rather suffer unjustly as Christ did than raise a hand to another Whether you agree with that philosophy or nott s beyond debate that to accept hardship rather than compromise your nner compass s called INTEGRITYit s called COURAGE In one very memorable part of the book Tom s ordered by his sadistic slave owner to whip a female slave Tom refuses and There’s an Alien in Your Book is savagely beaten Thereafter Toms repeatedly beaten Tom refuses and s savagely beaten Thereafter Tom s repeatedly beaten he continues to refuse to engage n conduct he finds reprehensible Despite this repeated abuse Tom NEVER NEVER backs down or compromises on his beliefs In fact the book goes on to describe the slave owner s realization that while he may own Tom s body he could never acuire his soul FOLKS FOR ME THAT IS A HERO How many people would subject themselves to that "kind of abuse rather than rationalize their principals Reading that portion of the book I was struck by the similarities between "of abuse rather than rationalize their principals Reading that portion of the book I was struck by the similarities between scene and a speech given by Gandhi n the movie with Ben Kingsley which I loved While speaking to a group of South African s about the need for non violent protest Gandhi says I am paraphrasing somewhat This s a cause for which

Sier to readThe story follows Tom a devout Christian slave whose owner Mr Shelby has fallen Argirópolis (Colección de Clásicos de La Literatura Latinoamericana: Carrascalejo de La Jara) into financial difficulties having no choice but to sell Tom and other valuable slaves Living with the Shelbys Tom s had many luxuriesncluding a decent wardrobe books and a wife and children He s been treated decently and appreciates everything he has He mourns having to leave them and the family mourns the loss of him and the others as well As time goes on and Tom Advanced Imagineering: Designing Innovation as Collective Creation is transferred from place to place he meets new people some kind and some callousThis booksn t just Tom s story there are other characters Around Town (LEGO Duplo Dk Readers. Level 1) including some of the slaves who were living with Tom at the Shelby plantation who have now gone separate ways Their stories sort of revolve around Toms I felt for the characters and found myself on the edge of my seat at times especially with Eliza on her journey with her young son HarryThere are other themes aside from slavery herencluding religion righteousness social roles of women family and freedom The Christian theme Social Imaginaries of Space: Concepts and Cases is very strong which wasn t expected I was completely unaware that the author would connect Christianity with views on slavery As to how the book made me feelt made me sick at times The discussions between slave owners with their talk of property and their complete disregard for humanity Developing Bus Rapid Transit: The Value of Brt in Urban Spaces is hard to digest Blacks weren t expected to have feelingsn fact they were expected to be tolerant throughout come what may These belief systems are nsane Perhaps what hit me the hardest was the nightmare of families being torn apart for the mothers and children especially As a mother myself I can t even fathom how some of the men and women during this time could stand back so reserved and truly believe that a person s skin color made them less than human not able to learn love or have any feelings for that matter and then to watch these women s children ripped away from them The constant degradation of Blacks and the racial slurs were upsetting For a melancholic person such as myself I can say with certainty that this book stressed me out and made me angry With that said I was also uplifted and nspired by Tom s unwavering strength and faith It s very thought provoking how divided people were then much the same as we are today This book most definitely encourages discussionI ll likely never want to read this book again but I feel this Comparative Policing from a Legal Perspective is such anmportant read and I ll even go so far as to say that Connivance it should be reuired reading for upper grades regardless of the religiousdeology4 It s not really this book s fault that The Rest of the Story it sucks Harriet Beecher Stowe s heart wasn the right place she aimed to expose the evils of slavery Abraham Lincoln China-European Union Investment Relationships: Towards a New Leadership in Global Investment Governance?

school possibly an excerpt or two was thrown n front of us but I honestly don t really remember reading t until freshman year of college Prior to reading t the silly and uneducated man I was thought Ms Stowe was an African American telling the story about slavery n America not all that different from The Underground Railroad stories Please forgive me as I had difficulty reading books that showed the harsh slices of life and cruelties people suffered It just doesn t cross my mind that I could ever treat someone differently because of what they look like or where they came from and the mmature
