Johnson tone shifts and becomes harsher allowing room for the mother to think about her faults. Johnson feels that the evident faith the mother has for her son is not enough for him to recommend her son into the university. He then goes on to simply tell her that there is no accurate reason why her son deserves this position.

Troy 's father didn 't teach Troy any positive traits directly, instead Troy adopted them in order to differentiate himself from his father and to live a better life. Troy learned the value of hard work from his father and all the time he spent working on the farm when he was younger and he lives by that trait. He takes care of his family because he knows it 's the responsible thing to do no matter what.
Most colored people do not have the right to help people because they do not own any property. When Papa came home to say that Mr. Morrison was going to stay with the Logan’s, they we’re allowed to do so because they’re the landowners. If the Logan’s lived in someone else’s land, it is most likely that the landowner will not accept Mr. Morrison living in his property. People may think that land does not actually give the Logan’s that much freedom because they are still victims of segregation. Although it is true that it owning land does not completely give the Logan’s freedom, it could have been worse if they didn’t.

This is a pivotal scene where Huck ultimately decides that there is no reason Jim shouldn 't be free. I think that he was far enough into the trip with Jim where their bond had grown to be that of either brothers or father and son. This allowed him to think independently with his own memories and emotions, not society 's. He also realizes that his bond with the Widow is insignificant when compared to the love and protection that Jim has provided to Huck. This renouncement appalled me because she provided Huck with a home and education when both of Huck 's parents were absent.
