OK, so is the narrator moving up socially or intellectually. I'm really not sure. I think he is being used and it sounds like it is enough for him as an advancement in life?

Not too sure. I would like to hear what you two have to say.

When I read the chapters I feel as though the narrator is moving up in the social ranks, making a difference, and beginning to see some of the realities of the culture that he lives in. Yet, when I read SparkNotes, and the references to the ultimate betrayal of the Brotherhood, I read the chapters with a different feeling. I am looking for points of deception, I don't trust them, and think that I am reading differently (maybe with a prejudice) than if I read with out the advanced knowledge provided by SparkNotes.

I was suspicious of the 'brotherhoods' motives from the moment the woman whispered' but is he black enough?' I thought the dolls/puppets that may have come in a later chapter represented how the brotherhood played he and Clifton. They pulled the strings. He could have been a martin luther king. he was a natural but they only wanted him to say what they aid him to say. he never really seemed to get exactly WHAT that was
