Just a question I have regarding the reading. Is the lower caste groups people of color? I read in earlier chapters “The hangars were staffed by a single Bokanovsky group, and the men were twins, identically small, black and hideous” ( Huxley page 69),”the negro had a helicopter accident fell on his head…….. The conditioning knocked all the negro’s conditioning into a cocked hat” ( Huxley page 154-155).
Great observations/question Denise! As you point out, in the World State, lower castes do seem to be linked to people of color. Let’s discuss this in class today.
(I categorized this for you as “Class Discussion,” since that’s a good way to keep track of these conversations).
