English, Ethics in Literature

There should be written 4 journals for the following questions: 

1. Martin Luther King – To what extent has King’s dream been fulfilled in American life since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? That act prohibited discrimination in employment on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

2. Maya Angelou – Does this essay reveal the insult of stereotyping people? If so, how does it do that?

3. Stanley Milgram – What do you make of this experiment? Why did the “teachers” continue to go on with the experiments when they saw the learners in evident pain? Does it really show how deeply we adhere to authority?

4.“Harrison Bergeron” – Is our society moving in the direction of dumbing down people to a lowest common denominator as occurs in this story? If you think so, give some examples. If you disagree, explain why.

Can someone help to write the journals?
