Richard Wright, an amazing African-American writer, has created a book that has really caught my eye. Bigger Thomas, the protaganist out of Native Son, is caught in between fear and angry when he realizes that many African-Americans are unable to get opportunities; and, in which, he commits horrible crimes that cause lead to his death. I believe that Richard Wright, during his time period, was forced to write such a book because this information was meant inform people on how they were being treated. Honestly, this is one of my favorite books of all time on account of this relates to society, and personally, and to me as well. I see Bigger Thomas in each and everyone of us. When being oppressed, it can cause one to feel as though there is no other way except to lash out.
