<u><em>chapter 1. </em></u>He remembers Edgar, one of his former Indian foster fathers, who treated Zits nicely until the boy one day beat Edgar in a model airplane race. Angry, Edgar destroyed both planes and grew cold towards the boy. From that incident, Zits learned to hide his emotions to protect himself. Further, he learned that a person's Indian identity did not make him superior. In fact, Edgar’s “Indian identity was completely secondary to his primary identity as a plane-crashing a-s-s-h-o-l-e” (11).
<em><u>chapter 2. </u></em>Outside, he runs until two police officers exit a police car and tackle him to the ground. Zits fights with them until he realizes one of them is Officer Dave, whom Zits likes even though the man has arrested him several times. He believes that Officer Dave sincerely wants to help kids like him, possibly because he had a rough childhood himself. Zits describes Officer Dave as “a big white dude” with a gentle voice.
<u><em>chapter 3. </em></u>He is further impressed when Justice apologizes on behalf of white people for attacking the Indians. They agree that the United States is not democratic, and that nobody is truly free. When Zits confesses his affinity for arson, Justice adds that “the true revolutionary must set himself aflame” (25). By the time Justice is released, Zits considers him a father figure and is no longer afraid. They embrace, and Justice promises to later find Zits.
I think that it is more important to help the injured animal - even if you are late for your exam, the teacher might let you do it anyway, or reschedule it for you, and the kitten might die if nobody else helps it.
