Updated NotesIt is now 2020 Though I have little to no memory of this book it was my opinion that it featured characters who were little than cardboard cut stereotypes and who did not respond realistically given their backgrounds and given the situations they were put inI can see how it might have an impact on some people it only served to frustrate me deeply It did make me do some serious research and it encouraged me to want to find and promote better stories on the subject So yes I can definitely see the impact of this book and I respect you if you feel it is a classic or suchHowever in today's world it is my belief that we are able to go a little deeper than the surface on these issues and we should Let us never EVER forget how horrendously POC were treated in our country throughout history With so many amazing books in existence on this very subject I choose to support ones that portray people who are realistically aware of the prejudice hatred and other horrors they are daily subjected toThose were at the time of my reading my views on this book I'm not going to reread the book nor recant views my little senior year self had on a children's book I felt devalued child intelligence as well as the intelligence of the POC portrayed in it Perhaps this was an attempt to make it understandable to children but again I feel it could've done so without talking down to kids who do not deserve to be talked down toChildren are human too y'all and they are capable of understanding such things In fact they'll probably surprise you with the mature simplicity of their thoughts on the subjectBut maybe I'm entirely wrong and every child I've working with over the years as a teacher a camp host a PSW an aunt has just seemed capable of independent thought shrugs But really kids are #wickedsmart let's not be devaluing them in what we offer them to read OR how we portray them in fictionAnyways It's fine to keep posting comments I don't mind But wouldn't it be better if you put that energy toward I don't know spreading awareness somewhere that it will actually make a difference isn't just conjecture on who I am Also the less you comment the uickly this review will fade into nonexistence Just saying ; Love y'all regardlessOriginal Review from My Reading for School in 2018Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor should not be a book that anyone would want to read or enjoy by any stretch of the imagination It’s biggest and perhaps only positive is that it is truthful about the horrors of racism in the ‘30s especially in the South Great for historical research and for understanding and knowing how to prevent such a thing from happening again Other than that it has nothing to recommend itThe characters are either annoying stubborn or racist Cassie is not the kind of character I can stand behind She is stupid Why are children in fiction novels almost always dimwits Do adults see all children like this People there’s a difference between innocence and stupidity I also very much doubt that even the most sheltering parents of all day which Cassie’s parents were not could have kept Cassie from learning about racism when she is daily the subject of itThe whole book basically plays out like soWhite people are racist and prejudiced and ignorantCassie Why would they do that I can’t believe they’d do that I have absolutely no clue why anyone would behave like that I’m just as good as themI am also mad at Cassie’s parents for not bothering to properly euipping their daughter to live in the sad world she was born into Or any of their younger childrenAs I said before the issues of racism which were brought up were the only good thing about this book It was painfully honest about all the lynching the social injustice how terribly the African Americans were treated etc Pretty scary However that doesn’t override the fact that it just isn’t a good storyI think it’s important for people to know about these kinds of things to be well informed so this kind of prejudice won’t happen again we can be careful of our own actionsHowever we shouldn’t be reuired to read bad books to get one little message I’m sure there are thousands of great books out there who deal with this exact same subject in a much tasteful and interesting wayAnd which have intelligent informed characters ‘Cause if the character doesn’t know what’s going on then I can’t imagine some grade school child reading this book willIt’s seriously a matter of this book just being too confusing and all over the place due to Cassie’s narrative to be useful to children its intended audience It’s not worthwhile for an adult or teen as there are better books out there for them so its purpose is completely and utterly obliterated
