Mr.___tries the old dehumanizing approach to get at Celie. He tells her that she is ugly unlike Shrug who people like to look at. This is important because it shows Mr.___is desperate. He is loosing what power he has so he resorts to the old "you're ugly" taunt. I think Celie will make the move and Mr. ____will stay miserable.
