When Pecola walks to the grocery store to buy candy, she encounters “the total absence of human recognition— the glazed separateness” (36). Mr. Yacobowski cannot acknowledge Pecola’s presence as a subject because he simply cannot look at her, “How can a fifty-two-year-old white immigrant storekeeper… see a little black girl?” (36). These are only reinforcements of the influence of the white-beauty standard. After she leaves the grocery store, she briefly experiences a severe anger, but it gives way to shame. But rather than continue this creative act, Pecola gives in and “the anger will not hold; it sleeps.
As stated in the text, “A thousand moments I had just taken for granted-mostly because I had assumed that there would be a thousand more.”(pg.368) For example, whenever Taylor had snuck out of the house and “ran away”, her father would always find her and pick her up in his car. Instead of being mad at Taylor, he always took her out for ice cream as long as she promised not to tell her mother. Although the summer was hectic with all the “drama”, Taylor
And dear old eccentric Grandpa Harley slowly atrophied over a course of two years. Well, not noticeably at least; she couldn 't blame the medical staff for his death, not when they all tried so hard in a profession they were destined for. Yet even with the correctional vision of her glasses (she refused to get correctional surgery, just like her grandpa in those forgotten times of the technological revolution), Jade could never see how the charismatic, goofy old man who loved having tea parties with silly-looking blue lady dolls with the quirky, wide-toothed smile could deteriorate into a living zombie. Eyes weren 't supposed to change color, but she swore that his emerald eyes, which glimmered and twinkled with all the vivacity of a life lived to the fullest and the thrill of ADVENTURE!, dulled into a ghostly, mocking white - the same hue which adorned the bedsheets, the uniforms, the equipment, and, simply,

I said “Ma, I saw the most beautiful boy in art class today. He has a skin like chocolate butter” … Later that evening my father sat me down and commanded that I never bring “one of those people “home. We Macedonians do not associate with those people… (Deliovsky, 1) wrote Katerina Deliovsky about her families reaction to her first crush on a boy. When Katerina Deliovsky married and had children with a Canadian man of Jamaican decent, her family rejected her, which later caused her periods of homelessness and financial deprivation. This was the time Deliovsky first experienced her “realization of whiteness”, that her racial position in society, meant more than only her physical features.
This crime instilled the fear of poisoned candy being passed out at random on Halloween, and the fear still remains. Although people argue every year that children will suddenly become the victims of a crazed poisoner on the loose, that is just not the truth. Over years, and years, it has been proven that this has never been a threat. The cases that are brought in turn out to be hoaxes, targeted attacks, or a prank gone wrong.
