Victor this character, throughout the story THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS
TO SAY PHOENIX,
ARIZONA we can see how colonization negatively affects Victor and his relationships. One key example that i noticed is his interaction with Cathy the gymnast.
Here we are exposed to Victor’s mindset towards the outside world. We can see how he truly expects Americans to be unfriendly or judgmental of their lifestyle or way of being. This honestly eye-opening. We can come to the conclusion that Victor looked at himself as inferior to Cathy and was fearful to ever open up to interacting with americans. Maybe his surroundings painted Americans as enemies. We will never know but it’s a question that clears many uncertainties.
