They claim that John and Lorraine are poor role models because they made a bad choice and lied to Mr. Pignati in order to get money from him. Although they did lie to him at first, John and Lorraine eventually tell Mr. Pignati the truth about who they really were. They both realized that they had made a mistake that they needed to fix.

When Smith saw the kid being beat up he did not say anything because he was afraid of how society would react, or label him, so society made Smith fearful of it’s reaction causing him to not say anything. So society not only limited him but his power to say something, limiting his words. Another example of society limiting people and the power of words is in Oprah’s Cecil B. deMille acceptance speech.
