how do these quotes make you feel, 

1. Anderson: You know, if I were a Negro, I'd probably think the same way they do. 

Ward: If you were a Negro, nobody would give a damn what you thought. 

 2. Mayor Tilman: Do you like baseball, do you, Anderson? 

Anderson: Yeah, I do. You know, it's the only time when a black man can wave a stick at a white man and not start a riot.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The quotes are showing more of racism which is not at all appeasing. They bring some form of anger because in this era where technology is advanced and everyone has access to it makes everyone equal not necessarily checking the skin color. Interracial marriage too is becoming popular and people nowadays overlook the issue of skin color.

The quotes make me feel anger burning since racism is a thing of the past and no one would wish to be discriminated.

I hope I have answeed your question.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

in the first question anderson shows respect and appreciates the black people .it seems that he is not racist but his friend  ward has no respect at all,he does not care what other people feel and he is a racist.he only thinks of himself and thats all.this shows that he has he ability to discriminate others.this is a very bad thing since racism is a thing of the past.

in the second question anderson potrays a charracter that shows lack of respect and racism.he says that its only in games that a black person seems to have some rights and not in the outer word.again in the first question anderson reffers to the black people as negroes ,and tries to bring out the idea  that they behave the way they do due to their skin colour ,this also shows racism.
