It\'s a biological mechanism that converts nutrients and oxygen into energy that causes its cells to divide, multiply, and grow. It\'s alive. Anti-abortion activists often mistakenly use this fact to support their cause. Life begins at conception they claim. And they would be right.

She criticizes Cholly, Polly, Claudia, Soaphead Church, the Mobile Girls, and Pecola because these blacks in her story wrongly place their anger on themselves, their own race, their family, or even God, instead of being angry at those they should have been angry at: whites.
