The white had well-paid job while the black had to work under the control of the white and sometimes the black took risk to work illegally in order to survive from poverty. but the white never noticed how the black lived.

We cook your food. it may be risky to educate the white. Then. Then. in high rank position. they had everything already while the black could not have those things as the white did. 3. clever or stupid. while the white were the blue-collar working in the office.” Page 14 -Biko meant that it was a duty for him to educate the white about the black’s living and hardship the black encountered. Biko smiled. We can imply that Biko hoped that Woods and the other white stopped looking down on the black as the black was not as weak or stupid as the white used to think. The white lived in the happiness and possessed everything whilst the black could possess nothing. but because the black were not given chance to show their abilities in the society. Woods was one of the white liberal who was not stupid but was thoughtful and he could judge who was right and who was wrong. Biko wanted Woods to know living condition was one of the things that could undoubtedly proved how unfair the white treated to the black.

Something to do with your blackness. clever or stupid. and belonged to everything. the black child. Because no matter how stupid or clever a white child is. you will die in it…” page 17 -Biko wanted to show that the living condition between the black and the white were completely different from each other.

No matter the white was stupid or clever. we know how you live. “Would you like to see how we live?” page 12 -Biko meant that the black knew clearly how the white lived. clear your rubbish. 4. so he could be one of the black’s hopes if he knew the truth about the black. the black started to believe that they just did nothing as they could not use it in the society or though they tried.
” Mapetla declared bitterly. “I am going to be me . The government could get what they wanted without getting permission from the black. 7. It sounded like the black also was belonged to the white.just waited for the luck to fall down for them. he could be against them. The white ordered them to do everything even house to live and rent. “The best you want for us is to sit at your table with your knives and forks. the white governments tell you which house to live in and what the rent is. We also can imply that the white discriminated to the black strongly and the black was taught to believe that South Africa was belonged to the white. and if we learn to do it right. He would be himself always no matter what would happen to him. but also the black. nothing could change him. but not the black. Biko meant that the white could not bribe him and he was loyal with the nation everlasting.” Page 20 -Biko wanted to show his determination to Woods. Thus.

The black had nothing to give to their children or their next generation. or even kill me. We want to wipe the table clean. If the infertile land they lived became fertile. so the infertile was the black’s. “We don’t want to be put into your society. The black had no right to choose or complain about where we chosen to live.as I am. “And even to stay in a legal township like this one. the white boss must sign your pass every month.and you can put me into prison.” Page 18 -Biko wanted to tell that South Africa was not belonged to the black. the land would belong to the white without any reasons. Biko did not like the society now as it was unfair and bad for the black. the black could not possess anything especially the land.” Page 21 -Mepetla wanted to show that he wanted the equality between the white and the black because South Africa was not just the home for the white only. We are going to sit at it in our own right. all you have got to give your children is this…” page 17 -Biko meant that the black could do anything freely as they were under-controlled of the white although the black stayed in the legal township. “But we want to march our own time. so the black had to right to do anything. You can never own land or pass everything on to your children. The fertile and beneficial land was the white’s. 8. that’s why the government wants us to go and live there. The land belongs to the white man…and you. you will kindly let us stay. He preferred to be put in the prison or die to be under control of the bad government. 5. so if the white suffered him first. It is an African table. 6. Biko would not do anything that betrayed his consciousness and the black.
9. The 8 | Page . 7 . The more solidarity the black had.wanted their freedom to do what they wanted without any aid from the white. I think they had such reaction because Tenjy and Mapetla were the first black workers who came to the Daily Dispatch. One journalist spilt coffee all over her desk and did not notice until the little procession had entered Woods’ office.the way the world should be. the black should bear with their fate. “In your white world. too” Page 22 -Biko meant that the white possessed everything in South Africa. Who were the main speakers at the black stadium? What were the main points of their speech? -they were Biko and Mzimbi. the white wanted the black to be under control of them sincerely. The most achievement of the white was that they could convince the black to believe that South Africa belonged to the white. the black could do whatever the white could. everything white is normal. the black would get benefits from the white and got special treat compared to the others. The white always were right though they did something wrong while the black was always wrong though they were right. 1. but the black was not treated fairly as the white. The main points of them: ● Biko: he was not going to change the South Africa alone. the winning chance they started to have.and everything black is wrong. No matter the black tried to get what they wanted. Thus. or some kind of mistakes…And your real achievement is that for years you’ve convinced most of us of that idea. Comprehension Questions How did the workers at Daily Dispatch react when seeing Tenjy and Mapetla? Why do you think they had such reaction? -the workers there stopped working a moment and starred at them. This idea was right and normal for them. The big mistake for the black was being born as the black. In fact. If the black listened to them and did what the white ordered. Cry Freedom By John Briley Chapter 6. He wanted the black to keep tight together. 2. The black and the white were separated in the different area but this time they had to work together. This idea made the workers there surprised so much as the black usually worked as white-collars. they still got because everything was belonged to the white. 8 and 9: Confrontation VI. the black should not do anything against with the white. but he needed to be hand-in-hand with the other black. Also.
How did the State Prosecutor attempt to trap Biko in the court? How did Biko respond? -by accusing him for going out of the banning area and talking to the crowd. VII.

Everyone knew that an informer would say anything and he or she could be bribed by the white. He was hit by De Wet but then Biko hit De Wet back because of De Wet’s disrespect words. solidarity was needed so much. He rose as example of 400 students killed by the white in order to show his serious compliant and hatred towards the white. What happened to the church and Biko’s house after the court? -everything was smashed and broken by De Wet and his guards. What was the main concept that Biko tried to convince the participants in the court? -was to influence the government by ides but not violence. ● Mzimbi: he wanted the black to stand up and fought back to the white as the white had done many bad things to the black. Biko wanted to make revolution in the peaceful way by killing the idea of the white to the black. Who did Woods seek for help concerning the smash-up at the church? What was the result? ● Woods sought Kruger for help concerning the smash-up at the church. Biko responded by saying that the evidence of an informer in a box was unbelievable.
” ( page 25) -Mzimbi wanted the black to stop fighting with each other and started to keep together tightly. If the black still did not have solidarity and peace among them. he can convince our friends overseas that it is right to tell us where to live. -Thus. he asked Woods this last question so that he could prepare something for his family and himself. “Should I have let my family know I might not be back?” ( page 24) -Ken didn’t know where to go with Woods so he seemed to want to know more detail about that place. it may be a black area. “If the only way we can get the message to him is to make sure he can never sleep his white bed in his big white house and know he is safe . Moreover.then that is how it must be!” ( page 26) -Mzimbi wanted the white to know the hardship the black given and wanted the white to encounter the way he treated to the black. I could learn that the white had caused numerous of problems to the black. I can learn that this place may be a dangerous one as he needed to inform his family before going. “Where are we going” Ken demanded. Ken must be told to go to an important place and do serious obligation.1. That showed that he loved his family very much. and wanted his family to prepare their heart previously in case something bad and unexpected happened. the white needed to be agreed by other countries. 3. there would be confrontation from those countries. -Thus.

Lemick did not tell exactly who that person was because if there was something bad happened because of knowing that top order. “Report to whoever you like. Kruger meant that it would never happen that the white would never live in the way the black lived. Our orders come from the very top. Lemick mocked Woods that Woods could go to anyone for help especially the white government. but it sounded impossible for him.” ( page 40) -Kruger meant the white should have found the way to live and work with the black.

He threatened Woods so that Woods may be afraid and told the witness’s name. -Lastly. -Thus. Furthermore. Moreover. Biko is giving them false hope. I can learn that Kruger and other white besides Woods were very selfish. He reminded Woods that Woods should not believe in Biko and other black people as everything the black told was just a lie. His boss must be a person who was in the high rank position and had a very strong power to control everything. as Biko was not allowed to go out of the banning area. but in fact. while the black lived in the way the white lived.
