1. Why was the story told only from Phillip's Point of view? This story is told from Philips view becausePhilip is a very interesting character and it will be more interesting if you tell the story from Philips point of view. The story was told fro Philips point of view so you could read the story from a racist persons point of view. Also the story is told from Philips point of view becauseI think that Philip learns a lesson at the end. 2. Why did the author make Phillip go blind? I think the author made Philip blind becauselike I said before he will learn a lesson at the end of the story and dealing with others and not being racist to black people. The author also made Philip blind so he wouldn’t be able to see Timothy’s skin color. Since Philip saw Timothy’s skin color before he got blind he could be racist.
