In Red Scarf Girl, the Ji-Li Jiang was selected to be part of the Libertation Army. But her parents have a dark history behind the chinese government and the Libertation Army. This "Black History" of the story reminds me of the election debates. We just discovered that Dilma won the election , and most of the people here at school are really mad that Dilma won. But during the elections; Aecio Neves and Dilma Rousseff shared dark history to everyone that was watching. Aecio reaveled some serious information (not saying it is true) about Dilma and her colaboration in Petrobras. He reavled that Dilma stole billions of reais from Petrobras so they could help he government and the elections. Dilma in her debates said that this wasn't true. But DIlam also said some bad things that Aecio has been part of. (not saying it is true) She said that Aecio has something to do with the "Pasta Roxa" wich involves people that were sent to jail and were realesed because Aecio said so. In the book, Ji-Li Jiang's family was a "Black Family" because her granfather was a landlord. So Ji-Li Jiang was didn't in the Libertation Army because of her grades and "Black History".
