This debate is historic and critics argue about the unequal opportunities in the country. Story of victor is not just about some girl that comes from small town to a big city and faces social pressures. Most of the schools in United States are segregated and millions of the white students are given additional facilities. Even by providing these opportunities most of the high school students cannot graduate the high school. Apart from this issues like increase in smoking among the high school students. According to statistic most of the students in highs school start smoking because of anxiety caused by reasons like pressure from the peer and the pressure of looking good among other girls. Pressures like this develop during the teen and grow in to serious anxiety and addiction issues. The mind set of individuals about minorities living in US is still present. The seeds of this mind set are transferred from one generation to another. Still in many parts of the country traditional white people consider minorities as low class and refuges living in United States (Pollock 223). This was observed in the story of Victor when her friend’s father called her Puerto girl and his son should not go on a date with her just because she was brown. The concept of beauty in the mind is still absent in most of individuals especially girls. Not only men but women also consider color black as class less and low class. Victor explained that she suffered in her early age and had pressure to look good and this element made her forget and concentrate about other positive aspects of her personality like good in studies. “When she came to the college she becomes exotic to her fellow students as she was of different color (brown) and had a seductive appeal. More than social life she needed stability in her life” (Mcquade 341).
