Racism In AD And Prejudice

Good Essays
Racism, does it still live in a world today? Do we still experience racism on an everyday basis? In AD by Kenneth Fearing, and Prejudice by Georgia Johnson, both authors illustrate their meanings of racism in today’s world, and from back in World War II. AD is based from World War II, and depicts a situation where the war is looking for mindless men to join and begin the killing spree. Prejudice describes the world as it is today, where racism lurks behind the corners of all walls. Fearing, and Johnson use their tones of voices, imagery, and irony to describe the theme of racism.
The first poetic device used in AD and Prejudice was their tone. In AD Fearing uses a causal tone to set up the nonchalant feeling of killing and starting war.
