"'But , Mama it ain't fair."'
In this chapter when Cassie went to Strawberry with her Grandmother, Stacey, and T.J, she faces a racial encounter. She was waiting in line for her goods for a very long time, but despite this the storekeeper kept waiting on the white people, even if they came after her. When she confronted him about this, it erupted into a violent argument which led to Cassie being called racial slurs and to be dragged out of the marketplace by Stacey.
In this chapter, Cassie has to learn how to adapt to the circumstances she is going through. Mama has a conversation with Cassie about what happened at Strawberry. Mama explains to Cassie that white people consider themselves to be better than African Americans. Mama tells Cassie that she doesn't have a choice of what color she is, but she does have a choice of what she makes of her live. At such a young age, it was very hard for Cassie to understand why she is treated the way she is.
In this chapter, Uncle Hammer taught Stacey that he could not blame others for his own stupidity. Uncle Hammer gave Stacey a very nice coat, and Stacey loved it at first. But while Stacey was walking to church in his new coat, and T.J kept making fun of Stacey, telling him that he looked like a priest. T.J was just saying this because he was jealous of Stacey. Stacey gave T.J the coat because T.J manipulated him. Stacey regretted his decision, and learned his lesson.
