In her novel, Red Scarf Girl, Ji-li Jiang recounts situations in which her education was greatly affected by her family’s political status, which she was completely unable to control. In primary school, Ji-li Jiang’s peers did not accept her because of her class status. Jiang states that, “as a child from a black family - a black whelp - [she] did not feel comfortable”, around her classmates (167). Ji-li Jiang discusses the relief that she had felt when she realized that, “none of [her] former classmates were in [her] class”, at her new school, and therefore, “no one in [the] class knew about [her] class status [,and she] could make a new start and just be a person like everyone else” (158).

Their rights are oppressed and this is a strong point I would like to state in my essay. I could use this article to show how the DACA act could have changed this situation if Trump continues to push for the repeal.

The second cue I identified is the Mothers refusal to accept responsibility for her actions in the way she raised and treated Precious. It was clear in the counseling session that the Mother still blames Precious for her significant other not wanting her and eventually leaving her.
