These white robbers show how bad whites can be and constrast how good blacks like Jim can be.The Watchman: Huck goes to the watchman to try to get him to save the robbers.

Huck's Evolution:

Huck and Jim's discussion is supposed to make Jim look stupid but it actually points out his good morality, despite being a black slave. When King Solomon decides to settle an argument between two mothers by cutting the baby the were fighting with in half, Jim thinks he is very stupid because there is no value in a half of a child, showing his morals Huck has yet to understand. When Huck tells Jim the dauphin of France could not have come to America because he does not speak English, Jim is very confused. When Huck tries to explain to him using the fact that animals do not speak English, Jim says that humans are not animals, even though he, as a black slave as seen as less than an animal, as property. This also shows his morals that Huck has yet to understand.

Allusions: King Solomon and the Dauphin of France
