Staples uses personal life experiences and vivid imagery to impose upon the reader the impact of discrimination. ” I could cross in front of a car stopped at a traffic light and elicit thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk – black, white, male, female – hammering down the door locks” (187) uses the technique onomatopoeia. This sound represents the action of the interaction between a white and black person. Staples uses this technique rather than describing it because it allows the audience to grasp onto the image, the description of what is taking place and how the point of view is set, and as well has more of an understanding intention of what the author is trying to get out to the readers.
