A Rebuttal to Audrey Lorde's Claims in "The Uses of Anger"

downloadDownload printPrint

I would like to argue on the Audre Lorde story “The Uses of Anger”. I believe in the argument that a person’s ego and desire to control others that cause most negative impact on other people than anger. 

According to Audre Lorde. “women respond to racism. My response to racism is anger. I have lived with that anger, on that anger, beneath that anger, on top of that anger, ignoring that anger, feeling that anger, feeling upon that anger, learning to use that anger before it laid my visions to waste for most of my life”. Here I am going to argue on anger of human beings, where she tells that anger is not the emotion that make one person destroyed by another women. I agree with her that it is not the anger of the other women that can destroy a person but it is a control over listening to things, learn to move away from such situations where it is not necessary and these are some things which people should know and very important to control on emotions and mind. In my opinion, anger is not one emotion that people can destroy by other women, instead it is because of ego, selfish and attitude. 

People start destroying the other person when they don’t like the other person color, status and attitude. For example, a person is middle class have a rich friend where they both cannot be a good friends for long time because one person cannot see the other person rich and if rich person show her status where the middle class person cannot do anything and ego start there and try to become selfish and rude to the rich person and the same situation with the rich person, she/he don’t like to reduce their status and show attitude to their friends which made the other friend feel bad and can break their friendship and they try to make the other person face many problems and destroy their life. So, anger is not the emotion that destroy the person life by another women. She also tells that “guilt is not a response to anger and guilt is a response of one’s own action or lack of action and anger is not hatred and hatred is what make people get into serious discussions and try to destroy everyone lives. Anger and hatred are different where anger is an emotion which make people fall in a situation where people cannot have any control on themselves. When it comes to hatred, it is some feeling that cannot be expressed and described to another person and anger is an appropriate reaction to racist attitudes, as is fury when the actions arising from those attitudes do not change”. 

So, to end up my review paper, I believe that it is not the anger that destroy the person life but the ego, selfish and attitude in people mind destroy the other person.
