Answer to Question #7
Throughout the entire Sitkoff novel there are many events in which blacks struggle to fight for equality and are continually shut down by white Americans. For example, when they (African Americans) were allowed to go to the same school for the first time with whites, many whites were not willing to accept this and freely expressed it through horrific actions. They threw rocks of all sorts and verbally attacked them by name calling. I think that here instead of discouraging them to give up and accept that they would never be treated equal, they continued in their struggle to fight for their rights.
