Ferber who discuss their experiences related to race, culture and color.

From the Paper:

"The issue of race and color has been an important aspect in the history of the United States and in general of the world. This was and still is one of the toughest hurdles to overcome in terms of the complete emancipation of the society. However, this is yet to be fully attained. Although this equality at the level of the society is indeed a lofty goal, there are various aspects which relate to the history and culture of a certain people that make this task to be practically impossible."
