When Junior shares the backstory of his parents, he says that his mother and father came from “poor people who came from poor people who came from poor people, all the way back to the very first poor people” (11). He knows that if his parents were not born into poverty, his mother would have gone to college, and his father would have become a musician. Additionally, on page eleven Junior says that his parents “dreamed about being something other than poor, but they never got the chance to be anything because nobody paid attention to their dreams.” Junior believes that he is trapped in this “circle” of poverty, and his dreams will be ignored just as his parents’ dreams had been.

The narrator describes it as a “special something that just made other kids naturally want to kick his ass” (Hill, pg. 66). Nothing else about Art except for his condition clues the reader in on what it is about Art that could possibly be making people feel so negative towards Art, leading to the conclusion that there is nothing drawing such disdain to Art but his differences and a mistrust of the unknown.
