Ladies and Children not Admitted - Episode 7

Huck progresses in realizing that blacks care just as much about their family as whites. Huck is clearly still lying and cheating to get by and is badly influenced by the duke and the king. Overall, Huck changes to become more understanding of blacks, but not more mature in everyday life.

The authors purpose of this episode is to show that whites really are not all that great and that blacks care about their families just as much as whites, and probably more, based on how Huck's Pap treated him. Mark Twain does this by showing the drunk white man and the white sheriff killing the innocent drunk man. He also shows the white duke and king scamming the whole town to watch them run around a stage naked except for body paint. He shows the black compassionate side when Jim misses his family and how he regrets hitting his daughter when he did not realize she was deaf.
