Everyday use is a short story by Alice Walker. It depicts Dee's attitude towards her heritage which differs from her mother and sister. Subsequently her perspective is from education and wealth point of view. On contrary her mother views are based on practical standpoint. The jurisdiction on Dee behavior is based on nice and expensive things.

Dee is described as an antagonist who opposes her mothers view openly.

In conclusion Dee view is not perfect because every opinion counts.
