And while Miss Celia’s grinning and “good morning” and “glad to see”-ing me, I’m wondering, how did she get this far in life without knowing where the lines are drawn?” (Stockett) To have people in the world who were not submissive to the idiotics of society was a blessing.

It was also a very common discrimination. Desmond however did not accept the inequality and decided to fight for her right. When her car broke down in Nova Scotia, she decided to see a movie to pass time while it was being fixed. At the counter she was refused a ticket for the downstairs seating because the seats were usually for ‘English’ Canadians only.
