In this Social Experiment, my partner and I tested the morality of students within a Christian environment. Past experiments have occurred on the subject of morality. Lawrence Kohlberg experimented on seventy-five boys for a period of twelve years. Starting the experiment when they were around ten to twelve years old, and noted their views of morality.

Walter proves this foreshadowing as he is talking to Travis and says, "...your daddy's gonna make a transaction... a business transaction that's going to change our lives" (Hansberry 547). In this line, Walter is hinting at the liquor store investment, that no one in the family approves. A few days later, Bobo pays the Younger's a visit to update Walter on the investment.

Conventionalism claims our moral obligations and principles are derived from the “social norms” and what is right or wrong according to society. Conventionalists are obligated to know what society will approve and disapprove of, and act accordingly. Our actions are then essentially compared to the social norms and then deemed right or wrong.

Everyone assumes that since Walter Payton is a Hall of Famer that he would get moved up the recipients list, but the government offers everyone an equal opportunity. No one is above one another.
