Primarily, readers are introduced to race relations through the relationship between India’s daughter Carolyn and her friend Alice Jones, the “daughter of the the colored gardener” who worked for a neighbor (8). While India, who judges people by their shoes and manners, generally approved of the relationship under a watchful eye, she would not allow Carolyn to attend a birthday party at the girl’s house and eventually had to put her in her place when the girl, showing her lack of class, was overheard singing a song with foul language, an absolute abomination according to India. Douglas, the only son of the Bridge’s, provides the best portrayal of Mrs. Bridge. Although he was “totally unremarkable” as a child, he did prove the most troublesome partially because, unlike his mother, he does not worry about much, including contemporary social norms (11).

She never came outside and cried all day long by the window. However, unlike mamacita, Esperanza knows English and is able to communicate with others.
“I could’ve been in the movies I could’ve been a star”(88-89) she said this regretfully. While talking to Lennie she told him that she did not really like Curley she only married him to prove something to her mother. Curley’s wife is always so lonely because Curley is never around. Most people on the ranch think that she is tart, but I think she is just looking for someone to have a good conversation with and wants A friend because she is the woman on the ranch.
