Another example of the reflection of the theme racism in Huckleberry Finn is in chapter forty-four. In chapter forty-two Jim was on the verge of being hanged by the Phelps family after he had escaped from their farm with the help of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Suddenly, Tom says to Huck, Mr. and Mrs. Phelps, and Jim:“Old Miss Watson died two months ago and she was ashamed she ever was going to sell him down the river so Watson set Jim free in her will.”(Tom, 273). Tom had known this information for two months but decided not to tell anyone even Huck Finn which was a childish thing to do.This chapter reflects the theme of racism by showing Tom has the choice of telling the Phelps family about Jim being a freed slave, but Tom decided not to because he was a slave to begin with.The theme of racism is not just reflected in the book Huckleberry Finn but also in real world events such as the violent protest at Dillard
