This paper explains that, in the novel "The Bluest Eye", Toni Morrison expresses the helplessness of the girls, who face racial discrimination and hate white culture but imitate it anyway because the white culture is considered good and beautiful and the black culture is considered bad and ugly. The author points out that Morrison in her own life was not from the poor class but rather from the African-American middle class, like the McTeers. The paper relates that the rape of Pecola by her father is not autobiographical but may have been based on things Morrison could have seen or believed possible, within the poorer parts of the African-American community in her own childhood in the 1940s.
