Storyboard Text

  • The narrator views this woman as an object rather than a person; she is a moving body without individual thought. In this way, the narrator looks at this woman the same way white men look at him during the battle royal.
  • I had a notion that of all in the room she saw only me with her impersonal eyes.
  • This furthest the idea of woman paralleling the helpless and subservient position of black people in the society. The woman is "tossed" as "college boys are tossed in a hazing" and thus she is treated with no respect or regard for her safety.
  • They caught her just as she reached a door, raised her from the floor, and tossed her as college boys are tossed at a hazing, and above her red, fixed smiling lips I saw the terror and that which I saw in some of the other boys.
  • Mr. Norton descrives his daughter as "pure" yet holds unpure thoughts about her.
  • She was too pure for life, too pure and too good and too beautiful.
  • This demonstrates a need to justify wrong actions trough blaming his daughter for seducing him. She is not his daughter, but simply a "woman" who is attempting to "please" him; yet the reality is that she is asleep and he is hearing what he wants to hear.
  • She said something I couldn't understand, like a woman says when she wants to tease and please a man.
  • This, again, demonstrates an excuse for every behavior by suggesting a man can see what he wants to see in a girl. The use of "whore" very descriptively demonstrates how society sees woman who have sex at all.
  • Although maybe sometimes a man can look at a little ole pigtail gal and see him a whore.
  • In a juxtaposition with the black community, woman are treated in a similar subservient manner. Woman are seen as emotionless objects rather than people, and are used only as men in the society see fit; both white and black men demonstrate belief in their control and superiority to woman around them.
