He did not mind of course for he wanted it to succeed and he could see it in the eyes of the officials and guards that they were terrified of the rebellion and they know that the government is losing the game of cat and mouse which they played with the rebilion.

Wart, on the other hand, was furious because he was mesmerized with the arrow’s perfect movement and the crow interrupted it.

As they tend to say “Curiosity kills the cat.” In this book “The Red Badge of Courage” the young boy Henry tends to flee from his second battle. That is quite strange because we would think someone would run from their first battle because they should be scared of what is going to happen.

A character named Jim is the star African American whom Twain bestoys the mission of being the stereotypical black man to prove a point. He along with his much more pallor companion Huck go on exciting adventures that unfold the events which expose the racist conduct of the time. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain saturates his novel with potent images of acute racism severe enough as to create a satirical mien that exposes the absurdity of prejudice.

So Lennie really never gets to be the person he really potentially could have been.
The abolition of slavery did not stop racism entirely, and black citizens are still considered lesser than their white counterparts. The U.S. government forbade blacks to use some of the same facilities, restrooms, or even water fountains as whites, and it essentially took a revolution before a racist government saw its misdoings. Once again, the embarrassing past shows the unneeded extraneous sacrifices made, all in the belief of desegregation. Slavery and segregation are embarrassing marks on U.S. history that specifically focus on race, and in the fight for equality, gender has also been a substantial, and embarrassing
