These were stereotypes that he first thought about in his head that then led to his terrible actions.

In the section of endangered black men, Morgan is unsympathetic of the black woman’s attitude toward black men and believes they are no difference than a white racist by not seeing the black men’s beauty and worth.

Toni Morrison’s first novel successfully depicted the life of young girls from Afro-American families who are facing racism and violence while they are searching for an identity in the primarily white world. Morrison touched many points concerning racial and social problems that were on the stake during the period after the Great Depression and maybe could even have some meaning nowadays. It is possible for young girls to be able of building self-confidence, - even when they are exposed every day to different feminine beauty ideals as standards which they do not meet due to their ethnicity. Morrison drafted two characters –Claudia and Pecola- who reacted differently to this situation. Claudia went to the opposition and resistance while Pecola

1 Many kids graduate school wondering what college they want to go to and if they want to spend so much money on it. Though some people think that college isn’t worth it I’d like to respectfully disagree. I think that college is worth it. The evidence I have behind my reasoning is that people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a degree, and people with a diploma make less money than people with a degree. 2 First, people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a college degree.
