My view on Green eggs and ham

By Lucie A. A. Gassaway

Hidden implications

I think a hidden implications in Green eggs and ham is never to judge a book by its cover I think that it is more than coincidence that Suess's Green Eggs and Ham was published the same year the President  signed the Civil Rights Act. It may seem like a stretch to imagine, but when Sam-I-Am is pressing his neighbor to try something of a different color, Seuss is pressing his readers to consider the untried like excepting that you cant judge a man by his color and excepting the new integrated schools systems and bus seats. At the very least, Green Eggs and Ham is about navigating life with an open mind and, at its best, it’s Seuss’ way of saying, Don’t judge an egg—or a man—by its color. My second implication is that maybe the neighbor represents him and how he was so against the Japanese and the jewish and maybe someone represents sam i-am and convinced him to except different ethnicity's.

Summary

The story begins with Sam's friend being extremely stubborn. He tells Sam-I-Am that he "would not like the green eggs and ham" in "a box" or "a house," nor with "a fox" or "a mouse," that he "would not eat them here or there," and "would not eat them anywhere."Yet Sam-I-Am's friend's attitude proves to be fleeting, as during the peak of the story he tries the green eggs and ham and likes the food he once hated. Sam-I-Am's neighbor's has a transformation through the story, where he starts to like the food he once was so opposed to.

I kinda agree your implication about the ethnicity problem. I can see the similarities within the story and your implication. You really though out of the box.

Your implication about race and connected it to the civil rights because people are not used to being with different colored people inn this time and people are also not used to seeing green eggs. Good job!

Your implications were kind of confusing at first, though I do realize now how deep this goes into the background. I never though of this story in that way before.
