Wilson, Fences -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Troy: I told that boy about that football stuff. The white man aint gonna let him get no where with that football.I told him when he first come to me with it. Now you come telling me he done went and got more tied up in it. He ought to go and get recruited in how to fix cars or something where he can make a living.


I felt that this line really shows how being black in the past really did make a difference in your future. Troy has no hope that his son will really reach a good job.
