These are too many for one post. I can do Race first but you need to submit your other ones one at a time.


Crooks is not allowed in any "white" living areas. Crooks is segregated because he is black. This means that he is isolated because he seems to be the only black worker on the ranch. Lennie walking into his little stable is difficult for him. Inside he welcomes the company but also feels that he should have the right to stop white people from being in his little space. Crooks is angry because of his own pain more than anything else. His little bit of space is all that is left of his pride. In the end his loneliness gets the better of him and he lets Lennie in.

"S'pose you didn't have nobody. S'pose you couldn't go into the bunk house and play rummy 'cause you was black. How'd you like that?

I appricate your answer but i was more or less looking for why and how those four barriers isolate each character. Im writing a research paper and I need a conclusion to it. i just need help summing up the main idea to finish it.
