Transcript of Huck Finn
"No'm. Killed a nigger."
"Well, it's lucky; because sometimes people do get hurt." (Pg. 216) This quote shows how white people are unable to look at blacks as human beings. This quote wasn't meant to be harmful it was just the mindset of this era. "It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger; but I done it, and I warn't ever sorry for it afterwards, neither. I didn't do him no more mean tricks, and I wouldn't done that one if I'd a knowed it would make him feel that way." ( pg. 90 ) This quote shows how Huck was not like most whites of this period and how he started to warm up to Jim. "The girls said they hadn't ever dreamed of seeing the family separated or sold away from the town. I can't ever get it out of my memory, the sight of them poor miserable girls and niggers hanging around each other's necks and crying; and I reckon I couldn't a stood it all, but would a had to bust out and tell on our gang if I hadn't knowed the sale warn't no account and the niggers would be back home in a week or two." (Pg. 181) This quote shows how Tom notices the white girl crying as the black family is being torn apart and how he feels emotion towards blacks. Through out the novel you can see that Huck was not yet brain washed by society and made a close friend in Jim and even helped him escape to freedom.
