-        character traits: aggressive, quarrel some, unpredictable, frustrated, religious ornet (?), confused, maybe crazy

-        attitude: hates it to be black and reflects this hatred towards other blacks, otherwise: hard to tell beause he is so contradictory

-        other information: cares a lot of his outer appearance, but he stays black, trapped in his skin (and maybe his addiction) are the reaseon for his mad behaviour


Being at the Negro family Griffin suddenly realizes what is behind the 2 main prejudices the whites have about the blacks:

-        Blacks have a low intelligence = no education

-        Griffins `enlightment´: Blacks have no chance to receive education, schools for blacks are very bad, Blacks cannot learn and the whotes do not want to change it


-        Blacks immorality = many children

-        Griffins `enlightment´:The couple „unite“ to find moments of comfort, when they are able to forget their lonely, hopeless, desperate situation they live in


Atlanta is different in dealing with „the problem“

-        more qualified leaders

-        better university of blacks

-        better education

-        justice foe everyone

-        „It´ll cause trouble“, he knows, that book will do it (194)

-        he thinks he is in a situation like „before the storm would break“ (194)

-        Mr. Levitan warns him „we don´t want t.....

-        the whites have to accept that the blacks are as good, as the whites


Living ans working conditions of the slaves

-        slaves were observed by overseers who sometimes used a whip or a club against them

-        the slaves sometimes live in a common room; they had no beds; once a year they got some clothes from their owners, children only got  clothes, when they worked, they only got new one in a years time

-        the sharecroppers start working on theirs farm

-        the things they need (tools, seed, food, clothing, .) is brought at the only local shop (which often belongs to the land agent) at very high prices

-        whenever the sharecropper needs more things or money he asks the agent for a mortgage; the agent in return will get certain amount of cotton
