This story portrays stereotypes, racism, and struggles, which relate to the previous books Malcolm X and Birth of a nation.

Well today started off just as normal, Scruffy and I going about our usual routine, just minding our own business but it seemed Carlson took a particular annoyance at Scruffy’s smell. I know he smells, but it’s just because he’s old, he can’t help it. Carlson started to complain saying that I should just put ol’ Scruff outta his misery but I didn’t think anything of it until Slim and George agreed with him. It was one of the most heart breaking decisions I ever had to make but I could see the pain that old dog was going through and I couldn’t stand to see him hurting anymore.

History Assessment Source A is a very descriptive account from Elizabeth Eckford herself about her thoughts of the event. It portrays the pure hatred for the blacks from the whites due to the negative choice of vocabulary however, as Elizabeth Eckford is coloured and therefore on the ‘black side’ it seems to be a little over-exaggerated maybe as an attempt to gain more publicity from the media.
