While Hazel and George each represented the social ignorance and constraints held on that society their son Harrison Bergeson represented the complete opposite of that norm.

One argument that book enthusiasts often bring up is that the very books that are being banned and challenged teach great lessons to children and even adults around the world. Children should also learn to face these explicit things at a young age because they need to prepare for those things when they are older is another belief of many people. Many people believe that banning books is unnecessary, while others--especially parents--think the content should be kept unseen by their children.

In addition, the society is blinded by their prejudice views of African Americans. Regardless if blacks are free or not, people still view them as violent and dangerous individuals of the society.
