American History X
Task 1: Witness Statmment:
Yestarday, in the night, I was trying to sleep, when I heard sounds coming from the garage, where the car was. Fastly I aproched the window, and I looked outside, and I realized that there were two black men trying to steal the car, the car of my own father!.
So I went to Derek’s room and I told to him that there were to coloured men in aur house.
When I told Derek, he grabbed his gun, and told me to stay in th house. But I went down, and I saw the whole incident.
First Derek aproched the door of the house , and he saw one of the thiefs, immediately he opened the door and fired his gun many times at the first man that he saw.
Then Derek realized that the other one was in tha car, and he was turning it on. The thief started the car, and tried to run away, but Derek fired his gun again several times, and probably he did some damage to the thief that was on the car, or maybe he is just death by now.
After all this midnight inccident , the cops arrived immediately, and arrested Derek by the charges of murder, but for this Im here right now, to tell that all t
hat happened last night was in self defense, and to prove that my brother is not a murder Task 2: Derek"tms first letterDear Daniel, Im writing this letter to tell you some things, that may have you a little worried, about all the last incident, and what is going to happenen on the future. First I have to tell you that im very pleased because, some cops came last nigt and told me that I killed those nigers, that wanted to steal dad"tms car, even the one that I wasn"tmt sure if it he was death. See you soon, your brother, Derek. DarekTask 3: Derek last letter Dear Daniel, Hi, im writing right now to tell you things that happened to me recently. Finally, I want to tell you that you must try to continue being bad to black people, because remember that they have no rights in our country, so you are incharge of continuing opressing them. Now, I want to tell you Daniel that here in prision I learned a lot of things, and most importantly, I learned how to get along with black people, well they aren"tmt my best friends, but now I can understand them, even one of my only friends here is black. He maked me realize how black people is discriminated on our country and the dificult life they have day by day. So I will spend These 3 years here in prision, but you can come and visit me, some days a week. So I want you to forget those things that I teached to you, abaout discriminating against black people also I want you to forget all the neo-nazi things that I did on the past. I know that this can sound a little weird for you to hear from me, but in this time I have known a lot of black people and how they live and the dificult life they have. First, Im about a week from being free, so I spect you and all my family to come and pick me up when I get out of this place. Another bad Thing about being in jail, is that I have to live everyday with a lot of black people, that make me really angry, but I hace to try to accept it. The only bad point about killing the niggers, is that im guilty because I kill them without mercy, so they gave me 3 years in prision, even that this was on self defense. Only for example for you to know, these friend that I talked about, is in prision only for stealing a television, and he was sentenced to more years than me, and he did a so small thing in comparison of what I did.
