Frederick Douglass
DEHUMANIZATION
House of the Scorpion
"You're a clone," he murmured. "Know what that is? A kind of puke. You were puked up by a cow."

"This unbaptized limb of Satan has no right to make a mockery of this rite! Would you bring a dog to church?"

"no birthday, no family"

"children as pigs - equated to animals."

" I wished myself a beast."

Thank You!

"My mother imparted her daily truths so she could help my older brothers and me rise above our circumstances."

"I was five when my mother taught me the Chinese art of invisible strength."

"My mother would proudly walk with me, visiting many shops, buying very little."
Salomon's Story
"I was thinking about how poorly prepared I was and how my father had tried to help, when the leader raised his arm and sounded the alarm."

Religion
Frederick Douglass
"For of all slaveholders with whom I have ever met, religious slaveholders are the worst. I have ever found them the meanest and basest, the most cruel and cowardly, of all others. It was my unhappy lot not only to belong to a religious slaveholder, but to live in a community of such religionists."

Salomon's Story
"Oh, I wish I could tell you how lonely I felt. I cried for the turtle to return so I could finish the kill, or return its life, but the force of my destiny was already set and that was not to be. I understand that now. That is why I tell you my story. I left the river, free of the tribe, but unclean and smelling of death."
"You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here—they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?"

"… When I looked down the pathway again, Lula was gone. In her place was a solid mass of colored people."

"One of them stepped from the crowd. It was Zeebo, the garbage collector. 'Mister Jem,' he said, 'we're mighty glad to have you all here. Don't pay no 'tention to Lula, she's contentious because Reverend Sykes threatened to church her. She's a troublemaker from way back, got fancy ideas an' haughty ways—we're mighty glad to have you all.'"

Matt from
The House of the Scorpion
is dehumanized and treated like an animal rather than a human being because he is different from the kids his age.
Frederick Douglass was not given the chance to know his name, where he came from, or even who his parents were. Everything that a human being should know first hand had been stripped from him. This relates to Matt's situation because he was also deprived of being treated like a human being because he was a clone.
In
HOS
, Matt, a clone, does not have any real family, but Celia, a cook, was the mother figure in Matt's life.
Waverly's mother wants her kids to apply the "Art of Invisible strength into their lives". Atticus instills important lessons and values into his kids that he believes will help them learn the meaning of equality. Both parent figures want their children to listen to their words of wisdom.
In
TKAM
, Jem and Scout go to a "black" church with Calpurnia even though they are white.
Harry and Waverly come of age when they were finally able to learn new things. Waverly was taught the "Art of invisible strength." Harry was taught all knew things about becoming a wizard.
Scout and Ponyboy change throughout the novel. Overtime, they both gain an understanding that their actions come with consequences. In
The Outsiders
, after seeing two of his close friends and one of his enemies die in a short amount of time, he sees that by simply listening to his brother's instructions he could have avoided all of these deaths. Also, in
TKAM
, Scout realizes that when she gets in trouble at school, it reflects back on her father, Atticus, and makes him look bad.
- While Matt is growing up, Celia is Matt's protector.
- Celia gives Matt a loving home and childhood that is as normal as possible considering he is not allowed to leave his home because he is a clone.
- Family is very important to Atticus.
- Atticus tries to give his kids good advice so that they do not make the same mistakes that he made.

Harry Potter
and the Sorcerer's Stone
"'Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn't realize that love as powerful as your mother's for you leave its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign...to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin. Quirrell, full of hatred, greed and ambition, sharing his soul with Voldemort, could not touch you for this reason. It was agony to touch a person marked by something so good.'"
Although Matt had a motherly figure in his life he never got to have a real relationship with his parents. Harry's parents died when he was a child and he never got the chance to know them. Matt and Harry never got to the chance to experience the bond between a parent and their child.
Harry soon learns many new things he was not taught before. Harry came of age when he was able to comprehend all of the information that came with being a wizard and being able to be a good friend.
At school, Scout is about to fight Cecil Jacobs when she remembers what Atticus had told her and walks away instead, even though she got called a coward. In the past Scout would have not listened to her father but would have listened to her childish instincts
Since Harry has such a close bond with all of his friends at Hogwarts, he feels like he should defend them rather than being a bystander. Harry is choosing to do the right thing.
- Ponyboy witnesses three deaths in two weeks.
- His maturity shines though when he decides to take it upon himself to make all of their lives mean something.
Waverly and Salomon, with maturity, both realized that their parents were only wanting the best for them. Waverly's mom wanted her to succeed by pushing her until she got it right. Waverly found this to be unfair, but later on, when she understood her mother's doing, Waverly knew her mother wished her the best. On the other hand, Salomon's father wanted Salomon to do the right thing and choose farming over hunting. Salomon soon realized his father was right. Until Salomon noticed his wrong doing, he was not yet mature. When he matured, he had seen how bad of a mistake he had made.

In my head I saw a chessboard with sity-four black and white squares. Opposite me was my opponent, her eyes two angry black slits. She wore a triumphant smile. " Strongest wind cannot be see," she said


Both Salomon and Ponyboy regret the mistakes they have made in the past. Salomon wishes he had never killed the turtle and let it get away. Ponyboy regrets that he did not turn himself and his friend in, for murdering a kid their age.
Greasers are constantly being treated as if they are not equals in their own society, especially compared to the Socs. Most of the people believe them to be the poorest class in their society. In HOS, Matt is being treated even worse than the Greasers in The Outsiders; however, they are both treated worse than they should be.
It is shown in
Frederick Douglass
that there are people that are treated better than others, specifically slaves are not treated with nearly as much respect as white people.
In both
The Outsiders
and
TKAM
, the Greasers and the blacks are not treated as fairly as the Socs and the whites.
In
Frederick Douglass
and
HOS
, both of the protagonists were not treated as equals. Frederick Douglass was not treated as an equal. Also, in HOS, Matt had not been receiving the treatment that others around him had been receiving because he was a clone.
Harry Potter was willing to break the rules to save innocent lives that were put in harms way. Like Harry, Johnny had the courage to save a life, in this case, his friend Ponyboy.
Harry Potter has the courage to break the rules and possibly be expelled from Hogwarts in order to stop Voldemort from returning back into his "body form."
"'See what I have become?' the face said. 'Mere shadow and vapour...I have form only when I can share another's body...but there have always been those willing to let me into their hearts and minds...Unicorn blood has strengthened me, these past weeks...you saw faithful Quirrell drinking it for me in the forest...and once I have the Elixir of Life, I will be able to create a body of my own...Now...why don't you give me that Stone in your pocket?"'
Maria is one of Matts greatest allies because she is able, eventually, to look past societies beliefs towards clones and give Matt his chance as a human.

Despite what Maria's family believes, she stands up for Matt in many situations. She shows how much her friendship with Matt means.
In both
HOS
and
The Outsiders
, there is a certain friendship shown throughout both novels. In HOS, Maria and Matt get closer as friends during the book. They grow a tight bond by the end of the novel. The same goes for Ponyboy and Johnny. At the beginning of The Outsiders, Ponyboy and Johnny were friends, but never had a strong bond. After spending the majority of the time hiding from the police together, they had formed a tight relationship with one another.
Ponyboy and Johnny talk about things that they could not talk abut with the other Greasers. This shows that they have a friendship that is proven to be strong and most certainly real.
Harry Potter and his two best friends, Hermione and Ron, go on many dangerous adventures together and take risks for each other that help make their relationship as friends even stronger.
The adventures that Harry Potter, Hermione, and Ron went on were extremely dangerous, not to mention risky, and it took courage to go on such hazardous trips.
Johnny stood up to a bully who was willing to kill his friend, Ponyboy. He had the courage to save his friend by making a huge sacrifice. If Johnny didn't have the courage, he and his friend would have been dead. Johnny knew what he was doing. Despite the knowledge of what the outcome would be, he still made the choice of being courageous and standing up to the bully. The people who were bullying Ponyboy and Johnny, the Socs, were"higher class" than the Greasers, so it was almost as if they had a right to bully the Greasers becasue of their "social class."
"The white children could tell their ages. I could not tell why I ought to be deprived of the same privilege."
"You don't have a soul, so you can't be baptized. All animals are like that."
"As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash."
"It ain't fair!" I cried passionately. "It ain't fair that we have all the rough breaks!"
It is very dehumanizing that blacks are not treated as well as whites. Blacks are not considered as equals compared to whites. In
Frederick Douglass
, the blacks are not treated well at all. They are abused and treated as if they were farm animals by the whites. Also, In
TKAM
, the blacks are not treated as equals compared to the whites, but they are not necessarily discriminated.
In The Outsiders, Greasers are known as the lower class. They are not treated with the same respect that the Socs are treated. Lately, they haven't been receiving any equality. This is a little bit like how blacks are treated compared to the whites in
Frederick Douglass
. Although, in Frederick Douglass, the blacks are treated as if they are animals and they are the whited' property.
Like Frederick Douglass, Matt does not have any real family. However, Matt had the opportunity to have a mother figure.
Family
Atticus and Salomon's father both try to lead their kids in the right direction in order to succeed. Even though Salomon did not go in the direction that his father wanted him to go in, Salomon, in the end, discovered his mistake.
In both Salomon's Story and To Kill a Mockingbird, the stories have certain "cliques." In TKAM, the two cliques are the whites and the blacks. Also, in Salomon's Story, the main groups are the hunting group that Salomon is trying to be a part of.
In
Frederick Douglass
and
TKAM
, both of the books have similarities when it comes to religion. They both have very religious white and black people. In both novels, the whites and the blacks worship separately.
When Frederick Douglass was young, he did not have very much experience with different kinds of slaveholders. As he began to gain a better perspective of different slaveholders, he found that the most religious slaveholders were the cruelest. This is similar when Scout gained a larger perspective of the consequences of her actions.
Scout matures throughout the novel and grows out of her childhood innocence and is on the path leading to adulthood.
The Outsiders
and
Harry Potter
share particular similarities when it comes to friendship. Ponyboy and Johnny get to know each other when being cooped up in hiding for a long time. Harry, Hermione, and Ron become amazing friends and get to know each other better everyday that they are in Hogwarts together.
