Positive and Negative Images of America

I have chosen this image of Jesse Owens as a positive representation of America because this was the first time someone defied Adolf Hitler’s ideology behind the perfect human race. Not only does Jesse show that you don’t have to be part of this Aryan race to accomplish anything, but he also shows an African American up on those Olympic podiums.




I have chosen this image as a negative representation of America because this disturbs me, in our country we have no need for guns but in America they have the right to bear arms. Many fights in the streets are now resolved by gun fights.
