American Civil Right leader Barbara Jordan once said, “We, as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves”. We focus too much on how people act, the way they look and where they came from. Many literature nowadays have been supporting the statement that Jordan makes claiming the differences in people and how they are being treated. Some of these text includes: “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson dealing with violence and the editorial “American Flag Stands For Tolerance” by Ronald J.
Allen dealing with right to express. In these two text, we see that Jordan’s words about how we treat others has a concept of how we relate and interact with each other.
