Yunior represents the trauma and pain a child can feel within a family through his experience with his father’s infidelity, inability to help his siblings, and hiding the secret of the infidelity. Yunior feels disgust toward his father because he has an affair with a Puerto Rican woman, while he is married with Yunior’s mother. The disgust and sickness is expressed through his car sickness. Yunior cannot ride in Papi’s recent purchase of a lime green Volkswagen van which was “bought to impress” (Junot, 174), without vomiting. Yunior felt like the van was the reason of his vomiting, “I’d never had trouble with cars before and that van was like my curse” (Junot, 172).
As the audience reads more into Frank’s stories, we get an idea that he wasn’t supportive of his son joining the United States military in the beginning. This tone that Frank uses is a pathos form of writing which helps the audience connect with the author. As he drives home from taking his son to boot camp, the author loses his way home a couple times, to not knowing how to feel about John leaving. Schaeffer paints a picture of being discombobulated.

When [they] were alone he treated [Yunior] much better, like maybe [he] was his son or something” (312).
His father despised white people and barely ever trusted any of them, which was the stem of his paranoia. Baldwin continues his life and begins to understand where his father’s anger and hatred towards whites came from. A specific line in the essay that basically sums up the Baldwin’s reason for this story would be “I learned in New Jersey that to be a Negro mean, precisely, that one was never looked at but was simply at the mercy of the reflexes the color of one’s skin caused in other people.” What Baldwin means in this statement is that he finally understood the hatred his father had in him towards the whole white against black situation. It gives the impression that he never really knew what the big deal was and that he realized the hardship his father went through which led him to a gloomy and unhappy life. This line is very significant because James Baldwin himself is a black male.
