On page three, Walter talks about having no feelings for Mary Dolly Green, because she died during the birth of his younger sister. Roots, the title of chapter one helps us to understand Walter’s background. Even though Mary Dolly was Walter’s birth mother, he considered Florence Dean, his father’s first wife, his mom. Walter had several family members that lived in his house. His father was now raising him and six children. On page three, Walter talks about his two step sisters from another marriage named Geraldine and Viola. His family also included a brother named George.
At first walter wanted to take Mr.Lindner's offer because it was a way of getting back the money that he lost. It was a struggle for him to decide. Keep the house and allow his family to live comfortably in a larger place or take the money and start from square one again. Mama allows him to take the executive order and decide what would be best for the family. “ and we have decided to move into our house because my father - my father - he earned it for us brick by brick.”
Walter white was a guy who has qualities of an anti hero and an antagonist. At the age of 50 Walter works as a high school chemistry teacher in Albuquerque,New Mexico teaching disrespectful students. The job isnt enough for Walter so he has to take up another job at a car wash to increase his money gain which is humiliating to him when he has to clean the cars of his own students. Walter and his wife Skyler have a kid named Walter Jr. who has cerebral palsy.on his 50th birthday Walter and his family watch a news report about a methamphetamine drug bust and is impressed by the amount of money recovered from the dealers.
In the beginning Walter is basically perceived as a jerk-he doesn’t seem to get along with anyone, not even his own family. His character likes to turn discussions into fights, make rude comments to his wife, and act all around immature. A part that accurately shows the way Walter conducts himself is when he is arguing with Ruth and says “Man say: I got to change my life , I'm choking to death, baby! And his woman say- Your eggs is getting cold!”
The last reason why Walter is rude and disrespectful to his family is when mama came looking for him and found his at the local bar.

Once mama starting talking about money doesn't matter Walter totally disagrees with her. Mama: Son--how come you talk so much `about
Indeed, Walter teaches his son. He talks about his father and how his fathers pride caused him to kill a man rather than to be insulted, the aspirations of his siter, how their father earned their house “brick by brick”. At this point, the overall tone of the play changes. No longer does the play continue in a despairing mindset, but it changes as Walter steps up to become “the man of the
Walter further shows his false pride when he flaunts his newfound sense of power when Mr.Lindner, one of the Younger’s soon-to-be neighbors, offers him an unjust deal. Now that Walter has control over the family 's money, he considers himself the head of the family and decision maker; this plays an important role towards how Walter treats others now that he holds himself to a higher standard. This theme applies to Walter when the chairman of the “welcoming committee” (115) named Mr.Lindner pays a visit to the family a couple weeks before they 're supposed to move into their new home in Clybourne Park. During this visit, Mr.Lindner makes the offer of the Clybourne Park community “buy[ing] the house from [them] at a financial gain to [the] family” (118). Mr.Lindner’s offer represents the racial oppression and how the white community looks down upon and doesn’t want African american people dirtying their communities.
all I got to give him is stories about how rich white people live…” Walter wants his son to be proud of him and look up to him as an example. He wants his son to know that there’s more to living than working for someone else and struggling to live a meager life. He wants his son to know
He feels that if he cannot achieve greatness and get his family out of the slums of Chicago, then he has failed at everything. It not only concerns his family that he sees his human worth out of money, but it worries them because they are not able to trust him to be responsible and just when making decisions. While the Younger family wants to own a house and receive a stronger income, Walter is the only one who obsesses over it and allows it to alter the ways in which he treats important people in his life. Segregation caused dreams to become deferred, and weights were put onto the families during the 1950s. Due to segregation, they could not afford what white families could, and this was because they were paid less in the workforce.

Michael Lewis brings the dealings of the financial world to light in Flash Boys, a book that analyzes the operations of Wall Street and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) trades. In the book, the author introduces readers to an unobserved aspect of the financial market’s underworld, where words like High Frequency Trading (HFT) raise eyebrows due to their implications for the companies that had held positions as market leaders in previous years. In contrast to past years, technological advancements meant that the individuals who invested heavily in information technology (IT) assets finished first and subsequently gained an advantage over traditional financial traders. While the book makes it apparent through a variety of examples, there is a recurrent theme of
