This is a really interesting viewpoint! My response focused mainly on the subject of disability in the story, so your statement is really eye opening. I agree that there are some similarities in the way Maggie is treated to how Twyla is treated. In the scene where Twyla’s car is rocked, Roberta watches; she does not participate, but she does not stop it either. She looks down on Twyla in the same way that they both had looked down on Maggie.
