Brother’s cruelty toward Doodle comes from the embarrassment at having an invalid brother, the burden of having to take care of Doodle, the disappointment of Doodle not living up to his expectations.

Like most people who have younger siblings its a bother to take them everywhere you go,especially to Brother.For example, Brother couldn’t walk out the door without having to take Doodle with him.Brother says,”If I so much as picked up my cap, he would start crying to go with me” (596).Since Doodle couldn’t walk yet, Brother had to lug him around in a wagon. It was almost like taking care of Doodle was his responsibility. To Brother taking care of Doodle was just another chore, he didn’t like doing it but he had to.
The reason why the narrator wouldn’t help Doodle down before he touched his casket was because he wanted to show him who was in control.

Now come on,’ and I hauled him up once more” (Hurst 776). The narrator does appear to be the normal supportive big brother, until he states the real reason why Doodle walked, “Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother” (Hurst 777).
