She loves the boy who was four years ago and not the man who is now standing in front of her. His son tricked a girl into getting into his car where he raped her and now he is back to spill salt in her kitchen as he did after he ate his breakfast. Because she doesn’t want to look into his face, she pretends that she is sick then she goes to her room. There are many unanswered question in Myrna’s mind, and she couldn’t stay at her home anymore and be her mother so she leave with a note for Kenny that it means he should go away within a week. In my point of view Myrna made a good decision in this situation for two reasons, first it is a good punishment for Kenny as she dose’s want to be her mother any more.
Reflection Question # 7 1- Personally, I had never experience any kind of abuse or neglect in my house, however; I had seen some people abusing from their kids. One time I remember when I went to the store, and the little boy was crying because he wanted to buy a toy, his mom get very mad and she yelled to the child and slapped. 2- The only thing that I did when I looked at the lady by hitting the child was that I approached her and told her not beat his child because he does not understand, he is a child and he doesn’t know that there is no money to buy toys. I was very upset because I hate child abuse. I think that the outcome of this confrontation was that she understood that it is wrong to hit the child in public places.

I was a very sheltered child, besides seeing the Puckett’s’ children and children in school. I went to a dominantly black school, except for the teachers. As time went on, I experienced being called a nigger by people passing down the street in their cars.
What was the significance of ‘Brown v Topeka’, 1954? Brown v Topeka was an event carried out during the time of racism and segregation across America; the court case was brought up as some black Americans believed being segregated was unconstitutional. The court case started because a father (Oliver Brown) was annoyed that his daughter was denied an education at an all-white school, which was simply a couple of blocks down from her house. This court case in my opinion acted like a catalyst for further change for black Americans. In my essay, I will be evaluating the significance of the Supreme Court judgment about Brown v Topeka.
They feared Richard, and some of the white people felt it necessary to act out their racist feelings in order to cover up their fear. White coworkers beat Richard because his boss was kind to him. Richard later had to leave a good job because those racist co-workers would “kill” him. When the principal at Richard’s school had asked Richard to give a speech to a large audience of white and black people, Richard refused to read the principal’s prepared speech. By reading the principal’s speech, Richard was saying what the white power wanted him to say and to Richard this would be giving in to the very thing he hated so much.
Despite these clashes of perspective, the main conflict between mother and son derives from Julian’s inability to put his pride aside, accept the sacrifices his mother made for him, and move on from his lack of success in the real world. Julian sees himself as a martyr for African-Americans. He fantasizes about bringing home a black girlfriend just to frustrate his mother mad and sympathizing with all the hardships she has to endure because she is black (O’Connor 1023). Julian’s mother admits that she believes blacks were better off as slaves and that “they should rise, yes, but on their own side of the fence” (O’Connor 1018). She exhibits the philosophy of “separate but equal.” This attitude might place her in the racist category, but there

African Americans were segregated from the whites and also Women had no rights because Men were seen as the alpha male. The obstacles of the two would probably fit into the race and gender of how America was back in the twentieth century. African Americans were always hard to be put in society in the 1900’s because of slavery. Even though slavery had ended in the 1950’s, they were still not accepted into society. The northern parts of the United States accepted African Americans, and many try to escape to the north to try to get employed and leave the racial segregation in the south.
