Respect By Arentha Franklin(1967)ARTISTIC RESPONSE FOR ROLL OF THUNDER
"S-some folks sayin' they glad he got hurt. G-glad he can't go and make railroad money. (228)"
Explanation Connection: The quote is explaining how whites don't like blacks very much. In this case some whites want Papa to not be able to work on the railroad for money to pay taxes. It shows how hard it was to be a black. It also shows how they got no respect or rights. They had barely any rights and whites could do anything to them and they wouldn't go to jail or be punished.The song "Respect" by Arentha Franklin relates to Roll of Thunder because the song is asking respect for black people and having the same rights as whites.
