Section Three: Black Like Me. Matthew Wallace Period 33/26/01 Part 1, (pg. 159) If some spark does set the keg afire, it will be a senseless tragedy of ignorant against ignorant, injustice answering injustice-a holocaust that will drag the innocent and right-thinking masses of human beings. (pg.
160) If we could not accept our somewhat different practice of racist suppression of black Americans, how could we ever hope to correct it? (Pg, 174) As a person who lived almost constantly in both communities, I could foresee nothing but trouble. Frequently in cities where 'racial difficulties's ur faced. Part 2, 1. I feel that Griffin and I have connected with the same feeling that blacks are born the same as whites and because that blacks were suppressed by whites they went in to a mental state that made them think that they were not as good as the white and they would never be. I feel that my experience with segregations differs from Griffin because I have never turned my self-black and also never lived during segregation of blacks and whites. 2.
Griffin really puts the hatred into perspective, I did not know that the hatred was so great until I read this book. This changed my perspective on how serious the hatred was. If were still going on I would be pushing for now. 3. Griffin wants his readers to know the pain, poverty, and hatred during this time of segregation. I believe that he got his message across loud and clear.
Also he wants people to think of how the whites and the blacks both had hatred for each other and it was not just the whites hating. 4. Mr. Griffin is a person of great strength, anyone even to think about turn themselves black during a time of segregation against them is a very strong person.
I admire Griffin for sticking with his project in south. If I had tried this it would be to mentally destructing and I would have pulled out. I don't consider Griffin a hero, but a very respect man. 5. Yes, I highly recommend Black Like Me to all freshmen interested in a book that deals with all aspects of. This book has taught me a lot about how serous the hatred was towards both the blacks and also the whites.
This book also shows that it does not matter your personality only the color of your skin during segregation.
