The story The Color of Water is a memoir by a young boy who lives with his 11 black siblings and his white mother. The book was written by James McBride later in his life after he had been successfully raised by his mother Ruth, despite the fact she was the only white person he knew.

“I feel like the same person I was when I came into college,” he said, “Other than the beard. The beard’s new,” he added, jokingly. Drew’s beard can be interpreted as a sign of manliness being as he hadn’t grown one until college. But instead of changing his entire life due to college, he just eased into adopting the new maturity required of him at CWU (and grew a beard). Drew will probably just continue to gradually change and never truly have a life-changing moment that defines who he is because he’s extremely adaptive and will live like he wants and if he does have a coming of age moment in his future it will only change him for the better.
During her visit to Whitman, Alexandra made comparisons between her high school years and the high school years of the upperclassmen observed. She noticed the variety of differences between them because during her years there was not much palpable competition but now there was between the students at Whitman. The competition of getting the best grades was a huge deal to the students because their grades were a factor to getting admitted to the college of their choice. Pete a junior student at Whitman, was one of the many overachievers who put in the effort to get the best grades he could even if it meant to risk his own health. Pete was a straight A student who one night took so much caffeine to complete a paper that was due the next day.
Five of five”, “the last member of the team”, “the end of the Campbell Clan”; that’s me. When you are the fifth of five boys, that’s what you hear. Along with the occasional “Were you hoping for a girl”? That one always makes my day.

With his upbringing being primarily in front of the television, he has only recently come into a purpose of life: art. However, to fully pursue being a rapper, photographer and self-proclaimed philosopher, he dropped out of high school as a fourth-year junior. While I admire his passions and recognition that school is not for him, there is no reason someone with a 150 IQ should be a fourth-year junior and is short sighted enough to not have a contingency plan. My best friend is wildly intelligent, loyal, and authentic as they come but, I often worry about his life in the next decade. His genius is proving to be his cancer and his loyalty to me and my career prospects a crutch.
However, against all social norms, the play is based on the close friendship between three people: Sam, Willie, and Hally. Hally is a “seventeen-year-old white boy” (Fugard 9), son of the owner of St. George’s Park Tearoom, and a good friend of Sam and Willie. Sam and Willie are black employees of this tearoom mentioned above, so they are definitely of a lower class than Hally. Despite this, the three of them share a friendship beyond racial boundaries; they consider each other as good friends rather than master and servants.
