English Essay In 'Buddy' he always stood out when there was someone elses view different from his own. But at least Buddy was not racist. He didn't mind having black friends such as the Rybeero twins. The Rybeero twins were called Charmian and Julius and they came from Jamaica. They were bullied and discriminated against their classmates for being black. They didn't have any friends except for Buddy. He was also discriminated and this helped me to understand that the kids were dividing the class into two separate groups; leaving the different people out. The author wanted Buddy to have black friends so he shows that he is not racist and that all the different people are left out. ...read more.

This showed that she didn't love her family because she didnt give things time to get better. When his mother left the house the whole atmosphere changed.

When they sacrifice their life working for have everything they needed this is a way to say that they love them and that they want the best for them.

Buddy had a lot of problems, like when his mum left, when his dad was a thief and when he was feeling like he couldn't continue. But he did, and at the end he obtains what he wanted because he never gave up. ...read more.
