He goes to Mr. Chase's house and they talk about going to a white college. He goes to his house and talks to his mom about college Conclusion We think that the ordeal with Sheriff Moser will help the college see that African Americans do need to go to college. They have rights just like anyone else to an education. we think that he will be a really good basketball player and he will show everyone that African Americans can do anything a white person can do. The college will accept his application and see that he will help change the United States way of thinking about African Americans.
