Fun and Games for Tom

"Adventure is reality for Tom" (Scott 190).

I thought this quote was important to really understand the character of Tom Sawyer. I think he much rather get a romanticized and playful take on life then pay any real attention to the "real world" as Huck does. Also, my take on Tom's racism is that his only reality is these adults who dislike African Americans. Tom is indeed racist but I don't think he ever had any malicious intentions. Its all fun and games for Tom.
