Then, Shaw’s good friend, Major Forbes, who is part of the regiment and does not agree with this decision says, “Robert, not with a whip. Not on them”. In saying this Forbes understands how ironic, cruel, and wrong it is for them to be whipping a former slave who is fighting for the abolishment of slavery because then they are sinking to the level of the Confederates. Furthermore, when Shaw tells him to never question his authority Forbes mocks him and says, “I is sorry, master. You be the boss man now and all us childrens must obey”.
Tybalt does not see things peaceful like Benvolio. He prefers violence over peace and pretends to be judge, jury, and executioner for the Capulets. Tybalt’s pride in his name causes much violence and the deaths of many characters. The houses’ pride in their names affects everyone around them but they are too caught up in their own feud to care. An example of the effect the feud has on others is Mercutio.
He gathered items and left again, leaving his brothers, half of the ship's crew, and hundreds of slaves that he brought from home. He wasn’t nice to the slaves either; he was cruel to them and even killed some of them on purpose.

The death of William, Henry, and Elizabeth were all caused by the cruel demeanor of the world around him to people or things who look different.
