When reading about slavery you would think a person of color would be the writer of story but that’s not always the case. Kate Chopin was one of many writers who wrote about racism and slavery. I believe race definitely matters when the narrative deals with issues of race because the perspectives will be different. A white person may see things differently than a black person during those time because their lives were so different. Although anyone can tell someone’s story through point of view it is more accurate if someone who delt with those issues firsthand tell the story. During that time Kate Chopin did not experience the struggles of a black person so she can only share her experience.

I agree that the experience of a white person in those times makes one question the legitimacy of the story being told.
Hey Sinya, i agree that although she can see and witness these things happening, its not the same as experiences them all together.
