Color Purple

...The Color Purple Walker, Alice- 1982 Alexis Moss Alice Walker wrote The Color Purple (book titles in italics) to give her insight of men, women, love or the lack thereof, physical, mental, and verbal abuse. The men within this book were very powerful. It would be safe to say that the men were slave owners, and the women were the slaves. Celie was the main character of the book, and she endures every form of abuse from individuals in her life that should have been showing her love. Everyone abused her except her sister Nettie, whom she found herself trying to protect from their father. Celie’s mother abused and cursed her, even while being on her sick bed because her husband desired to have sex with Celie more than her. Walker uses this unique protagonist to comment on the racism, sexism, and abuse of women who was so prevalent in the early 1900s. Walker used Celie’s inner monologue (in the form of letters to God and her sister Nettie) to convey the overarching message of the novel; the power of finding that inner voice that leads to freedom from the oppression of society’s expectations. The plot takes place over a 30-year period in the reconstruction South of Georgia. They live in a rural farm community and were a hotbed of activity for civil rights and suffrage. This book was written from the other side of racism, from the victim’s point of view forcing the reader to see the result of bigotry. Racism not only affected Celie’s life but also the life of her friend......

Purple Cow

...Purple Cow Examples: Italian Butcher, Otis elevator, Lady Gaga, Apple. The lesson is simple – boring always leads to failure. Boring is always the most risky strategy. Smart businesspeople realize this, and work to minimize (but not eliminate) the risk from the process. They know that sometimes it’s not going to work, but they accept the fact that that’s okay. The opposite of remarkable is very good. NEW MARKETING: Create remarkable products that the right people seek out. The more intransigent the market, The more crowded the marketplace, The more busier are the customers, The more we need a Purple Cow.

...traditional color wheel used by painters, violet and purple are both placed between red and blue. Purple occupies the space closer to red, between crimson and violet.[3] Violet is closer to blue, and is usually less intense and bright than purple. While the two colors do look similar, from the point of view of optics there are important differences. Violet is a spectral, or real color – it occupies its own place at the end of the spectrum of light, and it has its own wavelength (approximately 380–420 nm). It was one of the colors of the spectrum first identified by Isaac Newton in 1672, whereas purple is simply a combination of two colors, red and blue. There is no such thing as the "wavelength of purple light"; it only exists as a combination.[12] [13] Pure violet cannot be accurately reproduced by the Red-Green-Blue (RGB) color system, the method used to create colors on a television screen or computer display. It is approximated by mixing blue light at high intensity with less intense red light on a black screen. The resulting color has the same hue but a lower saturation than pure violet. One curious psychophysical difference between purple and violet is their appearance with an increase in luminance (apparent brightness). Violet, as it brightens, looks more and more blue. The same effect does not happen with purple. This is the result of what is known as the Bezold–Brücke shift. While the scientific definitions of violet and purple are clear, the cultural definitions......

The Purple Line

...Dave Harvey Case Brief #2 The Purple Line & The Hay’s Spring Amphipod Issue The client is interested in purchasing a lot near the new proposed metro purple line that runs to Montgomery County, MD however; there has been word that an endangered species is currently living in the Rock Creek Park, which will be affected by this new metro line. The main issue is that you can’t do any work or construction that can harm the endangered species that has been officially listed. This issue can cause a major delay in the additional metro line and can sway the client’s decision of opening a new lot in that location if it won’t be possible to build the metro line any longer. Another issue is determining if that endangered species is still living in the Rock Creek Park because if not, they will be taken off the endangered species list and the metro line will then be in progress. There has to be evidence to prove that the endangered species is no longer there in order for them to continue with this project and the client purchasing a nearby lot for business. Facts To start, the Hay’s Spring Amphipod has been federally listed on the protected endangered species list since 1982. This endangered species has a way of signaling that the water is good quality and if destroyed then that won’t happen.

The Colour Purple

...The Colour Purple 1. Give specific examples of how Celie speaks and understands the world – and how her language and understanding of the world changes as time passes in the novel. Celie spends most of her time doing chores at home instead of going to school like her sister Nettie. An example of this is: “I ast him to take me instead of Nettie while our new mammy sick. But he just ast me what I’m talking bout. I tell him I can fix myself up for him.” This small passage is a great example on Celie’s use of phonetic language. Basically it is the way a language is pronounced written down. This is the reason why the book is exactly like she talks or pronounces the words, if you will. As mentioned, Celie did not go to school, and as a result of this, Celie does not know how to speak properly English. Celie has a narrow perspective of the world, and does not think much of it. Only thing that matters, is her sister Nettie. However Celie knows what it’s like for a woman to be married to a man. At least from a black woman’s point of view. She finds out that marriage isn’t all that good – when you get married away by your own farther. In the 1930’s, the main reason to get married was not like we think of it today. It wasn’t every couple who got married for the obvious reason – love. Back in those days, a man needed a housewife to take care of the children and to do chores in the house, while the man’s job was to get food on the table. In Celie’s case, she had experienced......

The Box

...The Box Suddenly, his cell phone in his robe pocket vibrated. He answered the phone, and heard the familiar voice of a client, a client that held a heavy wallet, “Mr. Jenkins, how are you?” “Ms. Chambers, it’s good to hear from you.” “Listen, Orson, I think I have to drop the November contract. Well… I don’t really want to say the reason… But I just don’t think it will work out, my apologies.” “Well…” “Goodbye!” With this, she hung up swiftly. He used to be a very busy man, but now, he seemed to be cut off from reality, everything around him seemed dead A six feet young man in his bathrobe was strolling around his apartment living room; he was wearing a hotel flip-flop; his dark green eyes were stern; he kept scratching his neatly combed dark blonde hair; his eyebrows were knit together tightly; his hands were rubbing his temples constantly, as if thinking of something important. There, in the middle of his living room, was a glass coffee table, on top of it was an ordinary paper box ---- a plain light brown cardboard box held together with tape, no address was written on it. It seemed to have popped out from nowhere. Orson was thinking of the day when he found a box sitting on his coffee table, he remembered that he ignored its existence and kept on reading his emails. He remembered one of his clients from Russia made a call and told him that she couldn’t make to the meeting, that was the first unusual call he got after that box appear......

Color Purple

...Cody Stetson Mr. Nester AP Writing/English 12 3 March 2015 The Color Purple Feminism in women's movements has been a prominent impact that revolutionizes women's rise for independence and equality amongst men. The ideology of feminism is shown rather often in various works of literature, through various different literature time periods. The way it is depicted in these novels can often include other various objective prejudices, such as racism or sexism. The Color Purple, by Alice Walker, depicts the same ideology, along with those extra prejudices, throughout the endeavors of her more prominent characters, such as Celie or Shug Avery. Walker's novel is a prime representation of the vocalization of women's true voices throughout the gender differences that plagued them and their entirety. Celie is a prime example of how unruly prejudice and direct insults can be on a woman of her time. She was portrayed as a character that is always quiet, never outspoken, lacking self-confidence, and is considered to have an appearance like that of a hag-woman, for men and women alike never compliment her for her own looks or features. Men like Alphonso and Mr. ____ only see Celie as yet another object in their lives, and treat her with the same respect as the whites did slaves during societal times before hers. The treatment of women in this novel as well as the absurdity and abuse from the men that correlate to this novel can directly be assumed by most female characters and......

Color Purple

...Justin Bauer Mr. Pena English 2025 31 March 2016 Sisterhood Celie and Shug Avery form a deeply rooted friendship in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. They each have what the other needs. Both women are severely oppressed by the hardships of their lives. Celie was oppressed by her lack of dignity and emotions caused by her abusive father and husband. Shug was oppressed by her unpleasant, vulgar reputation in the eyes of others. Shug’s promiscuous image restrained her from seeking what she yearned, which is to be a member of a loving family. Shug was never truly part of a loving family. Her own mother even hated her. She displays this when she states, “One thing my momma hated me for was how much I love to fuck, she say. She never love to do nothing had anything to do with touching nobody, she say. I try to kiss her, she turn her mouth away” (Walker 120). Celie freed Shug from this promiscuous image, and in return, Shug freed Celie from her psychological chains of abuse by being her mentor and friend. Both women became what others made them out to be. For Celie’s whole life, her father Alphonso and husband Mr. (Albert) berated and belittled Celie by calling her ugly and useless. Shug even joined in on the abuse when she told Celie at their first meeting, “You sure is ugly” (Walker 46). On account of constant abuse, Celie never developed self-esteem causing her to feel ugly and useless. Shug’s own mother first called her a whore and eventually others joined......
