Clever Sister

Stop blaming him. You blame him, you blame the government, you blame the drugs, you blame blacks. You blame the Percys. You blame the kids for being there. What about Matthew Poncelet? Where is he in this story? Just an innocent? Just a victim?

I ain't no victim.

Prejean has a very good point here. He has become what he claims he hates the most. For example, he says he hates when blacks blame everything on slavery, and yet he is blaming his situation on other things too. He refuses to take responsibility for his actions. He is playing the part of the victim. Prejean was very clever to use that word..."victim." I think that is what ultimately leads him to confess the truth to her. I think she uses that word on purpose to try to help him realize he needed to own up to everything that he did.
