Upon hearing something disgustingly racist come from Roger, it didn't put Junior down. Instead he stood up for himself against Roger.
And then Roger told me a joke involving Indians, African Americans and buffalo that was the most racist, disgusting evil thing I'd ever heard...I wasn't just defending myself. I was defending Indians, black people, and buffalo. So I punched Roger in the face (65).
Junior was suspecting, even before his parents answered, that his parents would say that white people are the only ones that have hope. Despite this, he still chose to go to Reardan.
"Come on," I said. "Who has the most hope?" "White people," my parents said at the same time. Thats exactly what I thought they were going to say, so i said the most surprising thing they'd ever heard from me. "I want to transfer schools," I said (45).
Junior had the entire Rez basketball fanbase booing him and putting him down just because he went to a "white" school, but he still continued the game even though he felt sick.
The rez basketball fans were chanting, "Ar-nold sucks! Ar-nold sucks! Ar-nold sucks!" They weren't calling me by my rez name, Junior. Nope, they were calling me by my Reardan name (143).
