    Spaar de spotvogels door Harper Lee (Caramellunacy, Anonieme gebruiker)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories about a young girl coming of age in the South and racial intolerance. Also both beautiful reads! To Kill a Mockingbird is told by Scout Finch - the daughter of the town lawyer called upon to defend an African-American man accused of rape. Roll of Thunder is told from the point of view of the daughter of a cotton-picking family who only slowly grows to realize the extent of prejudice her family faces.… (meer)

I think I read this in elementary school, but I didn't remember it well enough, so I thought I'd read it again. It took me a while to get into it, but once I did I loved it. I especially appreciated the way Cassie's mom explains racism to her, by going all the way back to how people justified slavery and how even now that slavery is illegal some people still hold on to racist beliefs because they have little else to hold on to.

On a completely different note, it always staggers me a little when I read these historical novels and notice how disciplined kids used to be. Why did that stop? ( )

I remember Mom reading this story aloud when I was a youngster. It was gripping, well-written, and made me aware of racism in a way I’d had little experience with before. Since becoming an adult, I’ve wanted to read it again—to see if my initial impressions of the book were accurate. And oh, they were!

This is a portrait of a loving family working together to bring justice and hope to their community, despite the injustice and fear surrounding them. As an adult, I picked up on things I doubt I would have noticed when I was younger—things like the cohesiveness of the family portrayed here (that’s often lacking in stories these days!), the way the parents loved their children and actively tried to protect them, their courage in the face of insurmountable odds, the way the night raiders’ deeds were described just enough that you knew that they were evil and a little of what they were capable of, but it wasn’t “in your face” or nearly as much on-page as it could have been…all things I greatly appreciated. These characters aren’t perfect—several times, different ones take matters into their own hands as they battle injustice. But overall, they were brave and loyal, and the family worked together to do what they could to bring justice and freedom to those around them.

I loved this book just as much as (or maybe even more than!) the first time I read it. It’s a stunning portrait of human nature, the battles many people have fought over the years, the resilience of the human spirit, and the hope that one day, wrongs will be righted and good will prevail. This is a landmark in American literature, and if you haven’t read it before, you ought to take the time to read it now. It’s a good book! ( )

Why is the land so important to Cassie's family? It takes the events of one turbulent year--the year of the night riders and the burnings, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she's black--to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride--no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.

This was utterly on message every sentence of every paragraph. I found it utterly uninteresting. ( )

As an adult, I’m trying to expose myself more to works that dive deep into racism, discrimination, culture, injustices, etc. Along the way, I greatly regret that some books were not exposed to me when I was younger. This has earned its place on that list of books and a place in my heart forever. ( )

Roll of thunder hear my cry

This book is about a family that lived in Mississippi. They owned a lot of land. There were the Wallace’s who were mean white people. There family was big. Papa sent Mr. Morrison to watch all of his family. There was a guy named T.J who took the wrong side of the road. And was blamed for stealing a gun. Papa went down to the land and set a fire so that T.J would not get hurt anymore. In the end, everything turned out great and it did not have to end in violence.

We read this book in my 7th grade LA class. I enjoyed reading it. My favorite part was when Papa set a distraction to make them stop hitting T.J... I loved this book. Everybody should read this. The only part I did not like was when they cursed at the African Americans. I encourage all readers to read this book.

As moronic rolls of laughter and cries of 'Nigger! Nigger! Mud eater!" wafted from the open windows, Little Man threw his mudball, missing the wheels by several feet. Then, totally dismayed by what happened, he buried his face in his hands and cried.
For him to believe that he is better than we are makes him think he's important, simply because he's white.
Baby, we have not choice of what color we're born or what our parents are or whether we're rich or poor. What we do have is some choice over what we make of our lives once we're here.
Roll of Thunder
