Huck and Jim's Relationship
By: Kailei Diss, Taylor Relue, Vanessa Venderley, Kuba Olczyk
Beginning of Huckleberry Finn
Huck views Jim as only a simple slave
"Jim was most ruined, for a servant, because he got so stuck up on accounts of having seen the devil and being rode by witches."
"Well, I did. I said I wouldn't, and I'll stick to it. Honest injun I will. People would call me a low down Abolitionist and despise me for keeping mum-but that don't make no difference. I ain't agoing to tell."
Changes from morals of society to what's right
Huck and Jim's Relationship on the River
Progresses into a great friendship
Huck begins to trust Jim a great deal
Jim becomes Huck's father in a sense
"It's a dead man, Yes indeedy naked too... Come in, Huck, but doan' look at his face-- it's too gashly."
"I didn't look at him at all. Jim throwed some old rags over him, but he needn't done it;"
Whites had life so much better than blacks and were very racist towards them
Connected to Huck and Jim
Whites and Blacks have separate drinking fountains, restaurants and more
Whites referred to blacks as the "N" word
Jim and Huck show a how racism doesnt affect their friendship
Whites and Slavery
Shows how gullible Jim was
"All right; but wait a minute. There's one more thing--a thing that don't know but me. And that is, there's a n***** here that I'm a trying ot steal out of slavery--and his name is Jim-- old Miss Watson's Jim."... I know what you'll say. You'll say its dirty low-down business; but what if it is?--I'm low-down; and I'm agoing to steal him, and I want you to keep mum and not let on."
Shows how much Huck cares for Jim
"Pooty soon I'll be-a-shoutin' for joy, en I'll say, it's all on accounts of Huck; I's a free man, en I couldn't ever ben free ef it hadn;t ben for Huck; Huck done it. Jim won't ever ever forgit you, Huck; you's de bes' fren' Jim's ever had; en you's de only fren' ole Jim's got now."
"Dah you goes, de ole true Huck; de only white gentleman dat ever kep' his promise to ole Jim."
