Lack of identity. Didn't feel belonging as black or white.

Got into trouble by being with the wrong crowd trying to establish identity.

At one point James punches a son of a Black Panther.


She rebuked her father's racist and ultra Jewish ideas which provided much abuse and friction.

Ruth married a black man which pretty much caused her family to disown her.

Ruth lived in a black neighbourhood which made her really stand out!
