Book: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
James Kry, Sukainah Hasan, Nasir Duppins, & Tristan Mayberry
In this podcast, we’ve discussed skin color. Throughout the book, skin color played a huge part in the book. The first event was Pecola getting judged by a boy named Junior. Junior continues to bully Pecola just because she’s a girl and how “ugly” she was. Another event happened with Pauline. When Pauline moved to another town with her husband, black women judged her for her appearance and the way she talks. Lastly, since black women don’t have a say in what they can do, they find other living things to cater to as an example of choice.
