Andrew Medoro Dr. Dunning English 143 21 September 2011 The Racism of Youth Throughout my education, racial tension has been a prevalent theme throughout literature, history, society, and politics. In particular throughout my study of American history, the struggle for abolition, civil rights, and equality has been a consistent aspect of my classes. In addition racial prejudice has been the cause for many components of American society, for instance in literature and film. However, up until my reading of ZZ Packer’s Brownies, I had never experienced racial tension between children at such a young age. Brownies is the story of several girls from a predominately African-American Girl Scout Troop, whose camp is in a sense “invaded” by a white troop. I found this to be an interesting topic for Packer to discuss in her writing; I have had a strong foundation with regards to the American Civil Rights movement, but very little experience with regards to racial tension between children.
