    QUESTION: Describe the author's perspective of contrast between black and white approaches to achieving things in life. In the essay "How It Feels To Be Colored Me" is composed by Zora Neale Hurston, she bids the reader to experience her lifestyle. She is not in the slightest bit concerned by being a colored women and sees her identity as her pride. Zora values herself and has desire for the experiences around her, including jazz music, “I dance wildly inside myself; I yell within, I whoop; I shake my assegai above my head, I hurl it true to the make yeeeeooww!” (Hurston 1037). Many of the white characters in this paper may be seen as a tad shallow- appreciating entertainment but not looking beyond the moment. The reader can witness this when the white man with Zora remarks on the jazz tunes, "Good music they have here" (Hurston 1038). In Eatonville, Florida the white people traveling through the town are a type of interest for Zora, and, unlike most of the town’s people and her family, she entertains them as they pass by. In this essay the white people see Zora’s originality/ uniqueness, though it is not obvious that Zora is valued for her gifts. She accepts the unfairness faced by her race, but she views this as a sacrifice made by her ancestors. Zora feels like a colored individual because society forces this perspective on her through separation. Zora indicates little enthusiasm for the brokenness that accompanies distinguishing herself as an African American. Zora reminds the reader that we are all more similar than different because we have been made by the same God, and infers that pride in oneself is a source of strength that can assist anybody with beating the shallow snags society places before us. White individuals, in Zora's story, may appear to be untroubled while colored individuals are dealing with judgement and different types of foul play, yet Zora's capacity to admit her character difficulties the assumption that everybody inside of a given race will see the world as indicated by the perspective of their crowd.

Hurston accepts the unfairness faced by her race, but she views this as a sacrifice made by her ancestors. She feels like a colored individual because society forces this perspective on her through segregation. Hurston indicates no enthusiasm for the brokenness that accompanies distinguishing herself as an African American. Hurston reminds the reader that humans are all more similar than different because they are made by the same God. Hurston infers that pride in oneself is a source of strength that can assist all people in overcoming the snags society places before them. White individuals in Hurston's story appear to be untroubled while colored individuals are dealing with judgement and foul play. Yet, Hurston admits through her characters that persons of a given race will see the world as viewed through the perspective of their crowd.

    The last paragraph is not as cohesive as it might be. Its relation to the other parts of the essay is somewhat fuzzy.
