During 1965 the caste people were viewed only as thieves and worthless people. Similarly immigrants were treated the same way and often were violated against their skin color and ethical background. It was very unusual for a caste person and immigrants to be accepted into the society. Craig Silvey shows this in the novel Jasper Jones as a lot of families were broken down due to violence and their prejudice family members and how a lot of families were treated badly from the society because of their race. In life discrimination and prejudice in the society can lead to violence, and violence can change a person and a family forever.

For instance, in his childhood, Amir is constantly competing with Hassan for Baba’s attention and love. This leads to his lack of action when he witnesses Hassan’s rape. His regret for not interfering when it happened and hiding his misguided choice infect his mind even in his adult life six years later when he moves to America. With a few exceptions, people simultaneously embody evil and good in their life; Hosseini demonstrates this with Amir, who is convinced that he himself is evil, and spends most of the book struggling to redeem himself so he can finally realize he is not wicked after all.
Those two have clashing perspectives about Cory 's future and, as the play goes on, this rough relationship disintegrates because Troy will not let Cory play university football. The relationship gets to be much more ruinous when Troy confesses to his association with Alberta and he concedes Gabriel to a mental establishment unintentionally.

His home is a “box,” where he is trapped by an ineffective father and a self-sacrificing, smothering mother. Caught between them, his allegiance wavers, and he vacillates, first betraying his mother by joining his father in criticizing her, and then ultimately rejecting his father. He hates his father’s personal habits and states that he does not want to have a father. For Coetzee, his father is an “appendage” outside the family core. His dislike of his father is also fueled by his father’s limitations: While his father is an attorney, was a soldier, and played rugby and cricket, Coetzee states that, in each case, “there is an embarrassing qualification,” since all these attributes are followed by “but.”
Most fell into internalized racism, influencing them believe in the stereotypes of their own race; increasing hatred for one another became the result due to the hindering factor of racism. Sadly, internalized racism has been used as a controlling factor to the African American race and has increased the failure of our population. This specific type of racism is demonstrated in our current generation of blacks; youth pridefully embody this type of racism. Blacks often feed into the sense of envious competition and greed, forcing them to go against each other, opposed to coming together as one. Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace and Tupac “2Pac” Shakur, were two idealized entertainers who acted in an influential role geared to internalized racism on our generation of youth.
An example of this is, Troy wants to the keep people who don't agree with him out, like his son towards the end of the play. Troy and Cory get in a heated argument about football, their lack of love and respect for each other, and never being there for one another. Cory leaves Troy at the end of their argument, “Tell Mama I'll be back for my things”(2.4.110) and Troy tells Cory “they'll be on the other side of the fence”(2.4.111). This clearly states to the readers how Troy feels about Cory and the fence symbolizes their separation and division of their relationship. I believe the fence does more harm than good because it ruins relationships and love for one
