What did you learn about racism in The Watsons Go to Birmingham
I learnt that racism do exist and it is experienced differently in different areas. Watsons in Flint do not suffer especially from bigotry and intolerance, but when they visit Birmingham in the south, it becomes another story. Daniel and Wilona speak of the South's black seclusion, but before they go to Birmingham and have their own racism, Kenny and her siblings do not seem to be in a position to be prejudiced. It is deeply affected after being subjected to this terrible fact of life; it is transformed after witnessing the bombing of the Church because, for the first time, it discovers the likelihood of so much hate in the hearts of others as the color of the other's hair, a characteristic that is entirely beyond the individual's control.
