She observes a group of African-American men talking big; how Joe is “gone to whip that white boy” (111) and then it becomes quiet. She sees the men how they are insulting the white fighter with each other because they know that are safe. She knows the consequence if someone hears them. Joe Louis wins the fight and the people in the store, “they seemed to be holding themselves” (112). She sees the people in the store and they want to celebrate, but they cannot due to fear.
All he said to his daughter was a lie, but soon his daughter figures out that what his dad told her was not the truth. At the restaurant, when his daughter asks if he wants to eat, he says he’s not hungry and tells the girl to keep eating. The dad masks this because he doesn’t want his daughter to feel hungry and think that they can not afford it. At one point of the clip, when the dad is washing the dishes the little girl sees and feels bad. After seeing this, she decided to write a poem to her dad saying how much she loves him.
She is insinuating that all African-American fathers leave their children and wives which makes them bad husbands. ““That’s what you want, Irie,” said Joyce in a familial stage whisper, as if they’d known each other for five years rather than five minutes, “a man like Marcus for the long term. These fly-by-nights are all right for fun, but what kind of fathers do they make?”” (Smith 265). Joyce further stating her racism and how she believes the Chalfens are better than the Jones' family, and the lower class minorities in general. She even goes on to act as if she knows about the Muslim culture.

After slavery ended, Jim Crow laws were created and many public places were segregated. This kept a clear division between the two races. People took it very seriously and were angered when members of the contrasting race used the wrong facility. Segregated bathrooms were a key representation in The Help and often were the main reason for conflict to arise. When Louvenia’s grandson, Robert accidentally uses a “whites only” bathroom, he is blinded and beaten up, causing lots of attention to the situation by people who were angry yet could not speak up against it in fear of the same thing happening to them.
The coffee shop isn’t used as a meeting place; old friends now connect through the internet rather than meet each other in person. One doesn’t go to a coffee shop on a weekend to go relax by a window to read the paper and slowly enjoy every sip of an expertly crafted cup of coffee. Now people wait in a long line at their local chain to get a paper cup filled with cheap coffee and fake sweetener, and rush off to their class or job, drinking so fast they burn their tongues in the process. Coffee and coffee shops have now become a routine rather than a delightful occasion. When I go into Dunkin Donuts in the morning I get the same basic greeting, same brown paper cup, and walk out feeling the same as I walked in.
The image portrayal of women in this film is a way for the people in our society to see women as not having good standards. As when Waldo is first introduced to the film Darla instantly started gazing after him for being the rich, clean cut young man. Also Boys see girls as a scapegoat when it comes to their problems such as the scene when the club house burned down, and Alfalfa almost lost his best friend he says, “it all happened because I liked a girl” but it was really nothing to do with Darla that caused all of those events to happen it came from him not telling the truth and trying to hide her. One can also see the ideal role a woman should play in society. For instance, after the race Spanky did not expect Darla to be the one that helped them or be the one under the helmet.
African-American, a word that hardly escaped my fellow students mouths, they 'd much rather call me a "Nigger" and a "slave" than anything else. Racism wasn 't only encountering me at school, but was happening when I "hit the town" people looked at me differently, the braced themselves when I came by. It hurt, it hurt a lot, more than you can imagine. Finally I arrived to my house, walking up the steps, I was greeted by my mother yelling "Oh Cavonté, thank god you 're safe, we tried to call you, something 's going on!" What she said alarmed me, I then a concerned look wiped across my face.
