In my understanding race does matter when the narrative deals with issues of race because it is easier to understand the struggles when you yourself are living it. However, race does not matter when it comes to defending people’s rights. The truth is that racism affects us all in many different ways. I believe Chopin portrays this statement very well in her story, because despite being a white woman, she points out the truth about being a person of color and the reality of what they were going through.
