The story compares the difference of hope and American optimism. The difference is that American optimism is being cheated because the George Bush Administration is covering up little stories throughout its entire term. Because of this our hope is being reduced. This story explores the personal and political unrest of our violated new century. The author is upset that Bush doesn’t have any knowledge to this story of one black male slaughtered by three people, and Bush ignores hearing these types of occurrences. He also talks about how it makes him sad that America is ignorant and doesn’t learn about these events because the Bush Administration doesn’t report these stories.
