Can’t you think of anything.” Textual evidence of why this conflict developed is well displayed in this quote from page 98.

People with disabilities are no less than regular people and they deserve the same love and respect. Brother obviously does not understand this because he is constantly acting like he is bettering Doodle’s life when his intent is his own personal gain. Brother feels the guilt of teaching Doodle to walk for his own personal gain when he reflects, “They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” Brother finally learns what karma can do to a person when Doodle dies. The scene of Doodle’s death is depicted as “bleeding from the mouth, and his neck, and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red.”

For instance, when Doodle is a baby lying on the bed, Brother said, “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow” (345). Instead of feeling empathy for Doodle and his situation, Brother’s pride causes him to feel more sorry for himself because people would know he has a disabled brother. His pride takes him so far as wanting to kill Doodle, even though he is merely a baby and can’t do anything to wrong brother, just so that he would not have a brother who was not “all there.” In addition, after the narrator talks about when Brother made Doodle touch his own coffin, Brother narrates, “When Doodle was five years old, I was embarrassed of having a brother of that age who couldn’t walk, so I set out to teach him” (346). Brother may be doing a kind act by teaching Doodle to walk, but his intentions aren’t to help Doodle, but to help himself.

The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
