In the novel, “The Watsons Go to Birmingham” by Christopher Paul Curtis, Kenny wonders why his brother, Byron, is so mean to him and to others. When comparing the way Byron treats others and by the way Kenny treats others, it can conclude Kenny definitely treats other more kindly than Byron. Byron partakes in fighting with a lot of aggression during or after school hours. When Kenny is supposed to be watching on the sidelines until the fight is over, he does not because he dislikes fighting, or watching people fight. While Kenny beats up Larry Dunn, Kenny feels sorry for him, even after what Larry has done to him and his friends while being bullied by the majority of the school. Kenny walks away from the fight scene and doesn’t give it attention.
