Black Racists~ Do they judge whites too?
All of this racism talk got me to thinking, are colored people just as judgemental as whites are, and does it give them the right to treat whites badly? In chapter 12, Calpernia brings the kids to her church because she doesn't think it is a good idea to bring them to their church without a teacher present. Upon entering her church a colored lady named Lula asked in a rude tone, "I wants to know why you bringin' white chillun to a nigger church (119)." This is kind of different then what I am used to hearing. It is normally the other way around. Is it possible that there are black racists out there being more judgemental and rude than whites are? If it isn't ok for whites to do it, why should it be ok for them to do it?
