Our discussion on identity today made me think about Christmas and his identity. More specifically, his racial identity. It seems as though he is most comfortable around white people. This is shown when he wanders into Freedman Town (114). When he leaves, it becomes clear that he is repulsed by black people.
On the flip side, he doesn't seem to like white people either. On page 108, when he encounters a woman in a car, he calls the car's occupants "White bastards." I think that he believes that his black blood is important to who he is, but so is his white blood. I also think that his intense hatred of black people is a manifestation of his hatred of himself for being black.
