Lecture Notes 31/12/1969 19:01:00 Screening: The Godfather Lone Star     Conversation about history At the end of the film, Chris Cooper’s character says, “forget about history,  forget about Alamo”, which is ironic because the film spends the whole time  illustrating the audience how important history is. California’s population is speculated, will be mostly made up of Hispanics in the  near future. America likes to praise itself as a nation of immigrant, but there has always  been a different reaction from immigrants that come form Europe than those coming  from Asia or South America.

When there is a challenge or threat to the norm or standard, those in power discredit the challenge as well as the source (this is where propaganda comes in – it is not truthful) ← Discussion Notes 31/12/1969 19:01:00 ← Reading response due next week in section 31/12/1969 19:01:00 ←...
