c. CLAIM: The text of Cane is racially ambiguous. c.i. Not one race is consistently portrayed throughout the text. c.i.1. Evidence: In “Karintha” – “Her skin is like dusk on the eastern horizon…When the sun goes down” (5). c.i.2. Evidence: In “Becky” – “Becky was a white woman who had two Negro sons” (9). c.i.3. Evidence: In “Carma” – “Nigger woman driving a Georgia chariot…” (14). c.ii. The African Americans aren’t always oppressed, and the white people are not always the oppressors. One race doesn’t dominate in the text. c.ii.1. Evidence: “Tom yanked him up and began hammering at him…He reached into his pocket and whipped out a knife…a steel blade slashed across Bob Stone’s throat” (36). c.ii.2. Evidence: “Kerosene poured on the rotting floor boards. Tom bound to the stake…Now Tom could be seen within the flames” (37).

70 Artifact 4 – Exercise 25: Self-Review for Paper 1 and 2 pt. 2 Linda Jung WR150 A1 April 26, 2013 Exercise 25 For both papers, I know that I struggled to find my exact argument in the beginning. However, by the final draft, I was able to produce an arguable thesis and problem as the foundation of my paper. In terms of the execution of my paper and how my argument was set up, I approached them differently in both papers. In Paper 1, I integrated the summary and analysis of the critics’ arguments, and in Paper 2 I separated the summary and analysis into different paragraphs. I think that the structure that I followed in Paper 1 proved to be more effective. It made my overall argument stronger because I clearly and immediately pointed out the flaws in the critics’ arguments. Establishing that earlier on in my paper helped me focus on my own argument for the remainder of it. Another difference I found between the two essays is in Paper 1 I fail to provide consequences in the conclusion about the particular problem. However, I did include that in my second paper and it added a new perspective to my paper. Also, I noticed that my essay as a whole is more coherent when I add in additional paragraphs that provide background information on my topic/problem of interest. Furthermore, I found that I have minor grammatical errors that could have been avoided with careful editing.
