How is Morrison using the stereotype to her advantage, to make art?
-A glorified moment- because of language
-Tall...strong figure
-July 4th....day of independence, celebration
-She makes it more art full, than gross.
- Comparison to God- and how God was white not black and saying the devil is equivalent to black. Saying that he can never be compared to the God, so why not the devil?
-Shows what he truly is and then what is show as by the public as. Ideas are tainted because of his ideas of who he can't be.
-Saying he is siding with the devil because he can't be god and god isn't anything like him.
-Also can be considered foreshadowing because he is like a devil (raping Pecola, and domestic violence)
