Smooth, wide-open arms welcomed her and the Aunt upon arrival. Nearly only five black, straight, plastic hands shifted clockwise acutely before the welcoming arms welcomed wet swollen eyes and welcomed the whimpering to turn to bawling. “She’s become inscrutable and my attempts to console her fail miserably.” the mother thinks to herself. Therefore, she decides to make a call. “Hi, my two-year-old daughter is not feeling well and she-” “Sounds like she has the stomach flu” the 24-hour nurse sharply responded around 9:00 in the evening.
From the beginning, it is clear that Skeeter is different. She treats the African American maids around her with more respect and kindness than any of her colleagues, and she seems genuinely concerned about their emotions and protecting them from the gossip and talk that goes on behind their backs. After learning of her own childhood maid, Constantine’s, firing while she was away for university, she begins to grasp just how wrongly these maids are treated while working for their respective white families, and she wants to hear their sides. Although collecting the stories from Abileen, Minny, and the other maids, is burdensome and causes her many stressed nights, she is determined to release the never-before-seen tales of the maids- she wants to make a dent in the vastness of the racism during this period. The best way for her to do so is to use the power of tongue and compile these stories into one grand, anonymous book.
The scene in the gun shop is one of the first times this type of stereotyping is seen in Crash. Feeling threatened and frustrated that a Middle Eastern looking man and his daughter are speaking in a different language than his own, a Caucasian gun store owner tells him, “Yo Osama plan a jihad on your own time.” Another example of minority on minority stereotyping is when Fahrad’s store is vandalized. Fahrad automatically assumes the Hispanic locksmith that had been there the day before had committed this heinous act and dishonored his family. Fahrad stereotyped the Latino man as a cheat and a criminal without honor. Haggis made it his mission to paint a scene of diverse characters in Crash to depict the universal concept of stereotyping in
Kathy accurately describes her mixed feelings of motherhood as “so happy…so afraid…that the baby will…be taken away from her” (70). Here, Kathy brings her own experience into this interpretation. Always knowing subconsciously that she is infertile, she reimagines herself as the childless mother in the song and expresses her joy and fear should she have someone to love so deeply and tenderly. Kathy’s reinterpretation is so truly yearnful and sympathetic that it draws both Madame and the readers to tears and pushes us to believe that clones are fully capable of the utmost human emotions and

I started the day of horror the way I would start any day- with a cup of coffee kicked with a splash of vodka to calm my nerves and worries. My mother would tell me that this was the most irresponsible way to handle my stress, being a wife and president of Human Resources at a very successful hospital was very stressful, after all, but, alas, my mother was no longer with us, which was just fine with me, because even if I probably did love my mother at some point during my horrific childhood, now was not that time. Mrs. Deborah Strickler was one of the most narcissistic woman in the history of Annapolis, Maryland, not only causing me to try to kill myself at the age of 14, but to also suffer from clinical depression to this day. My disorder was hard to live with, but the coffee and vodka each morning certainly gave me the boost I needed to not kill myself. The stomping of my loving, passionate husbands large feet broke me from my thought and I looked up from my cup of coffee to see him standing there with only his Hanes boxers and a button up shirt on.
