    I've got a presentation and I need to introduce a quote, say the quote and then say how it links to his past and society. I have already got the quote and few points about it but I don't know how to put it all together.

    Quotation: The white kids come to play at our place, an' sometimes I went to play with them, and some of them was pretty nice. My 'ol man didn't like that. I never knew why he didn't like that. But now I know.

    Points:
    - didn't understand why his father didn't want him playing with others. this shows a sign of innocence as kids don't really know what's actually happening in society. also shows that society is creating a barrier between two racial groups
    - quote is undoubtedly a product of racial issues
    - phrase " i know" speaks about crooks's adult experience. it also states that there's not a lot to the quote bu there's a deep meaning behind it.

    can some help and try give some few pointers. thanks

    In chapter 4 when Curley's wife enters his room and says that 'I could get you strung up on a tree so fast it ain't even funny' reflects upon the society at the time and the inherent racism as someone as low down in society as Curley's wife a recently married young woman is at liberty to racially discriminate against Crooks with the scathing comment

    good luck
