His opinion is mixed because although he accepts the society’s idea of Jim being a slave he still respects him. His acceptance of the society’s idea of Jim being a slave is shown when Huck addresses Jim as “Miss Watson’s nigger” (Twain, 17). By addressing Jim as such Huck is excepting society’s position on slavery without really having any experience with it himself. Huck’s acceptance is also shown when Jim brings up the idea of stealing his wife and children back, in which he responds “It most froze me to hear such talk” (Twain, 88). This shows his acceptance because he doesn’t see Jim as a person and he sees his children as someone else’s property, which he feels would be wrong to steal.
