I found it interesting that so far in the novel there has not been a group of African Americans protesting the procedure it has only been whites and a few people in Harlem who do not want to lose power. I would have expected a racial pride group to show up by now and argue for remaining black as a way to show that they do not have to change themselves to be just as good as anyone else. Maybe part of the reason why this has not happened is because the so called sure was developed by a black man so it is not viewed as the whites trying to force something onto them. If it had been developed by white people the cure would have been seen as stripping them of their identity rather than making a choice to change their lives. It reminds me of the argument the X-Men always have about being cured and whether it is the right thing to do. There are always different groups arguing different points like there is nothing wrong with them or they can be normal finally and I suppose I was expecting a similar argument to develop within the novel. Instead so far there has been very little resistance from the black community and it seems odd that no one would be against turning white except those who already have benefits like Dr. Crookman. I also see this as odd considering the history of the author himself and having learned about all the different movements he was in.
