A Raisin In The Sun

Question 1

What statement does Hansberry seem to be making about race? Does she make more than one statement? If so, do these statements conflict with each other?

He argues that the issue of race in mid-century hinders individual maturity and more especially the issue of dignity. Though, it is possible to overcome the matter on a personal level. Hansberry suggested that race is the issue of professional, economic and social discrimination. It is an object that a single family cannot manage to conquer. Additionally, a race is viewed from political perspectives which involve complex problems that cannot overcome personally. Therefore, individuals need to combine efforts to solve such a challenge in the future. In this case, Hansberry makes more than one statement about the same issue. In the first statement, a race is viewed as something that causes classes in society. This has led to the discrimination in the community thus, dividing people in the nation. As a result, it leads to various forms of discrimination based on education or social status. The second conflict with the first one since it aims at searching for solutions to deal with the issue of racism.
