The article, “Them for English B” expressed the thoughts of a twenty-two colored boy in college. He recognized that he was the only colored boy in his class and that even though the other students are white they are the same as American people. Even though his skin color is darker than most that he surrounds every day, he knows that no matter what there’s no difference between the other students that are don’t look like him. He elaborates on it by saying, “You are white, yet a part of me, as I am a part of you. That’s American.” (p. 1077, v. 31-33)

    Edgar Allan Poe narrated the poem “The Black Cat” which was about an alcoholic who tortures his black cat name Pluto. The narrator’s wife was so calm and seem like an easy going and loving person from her interactions in the poem. The narrator shares that he likes pets and had quite a few of them like a dog, a cat and a rabbit. The cat Pluto loves to follow the narrator everywhere that he went and the narrator enjoyed his company in the beginning but somehow loses his cool. He was an alcoholic and his drinking began to get worst. His behavior started to reflect that he was an alcoholic after he hurt his cat Pluto because he was getting old and he had no use for Pluto anymore. So, Pluto was abused by the narrator and ended up with one eye because  the narrator cut out one of Pluto’s eyes. .After becoming intoxicated the narrator put a noose around the cats neck and hung him in a tree outside of his home killing the cat. The narrators woke up and realized what he had done so he went to another place and ended up finding another black cat that resembled Pluto. He thought it was the landlord’s cat but no one claimed it. The car became his new pet and his wife was so gentle with the cat. The narrator liked the cat as well until he realized it only had one eye like his previous cat Pluto. Over time the cat became annoying to him so he had no tolerance for the cat anyone. The narrator became more violent with the second cat which was unnamed. The narrator knows he was loosing his temper by saying, “Our friendship lasted, in this manner, for several years, during which my general temperament and character-through the instrumentality of the Fiend Intemperance-had (I blush to confess it) experienced a radical altercation for the worst.” (p. 696, para. 2)
