WELL NOBODY CAN ANSWER ALL THREE FULLY FOR 4O MARKS ON HERE SO WILL JUST INCLUDE SOME KEY ISSUES:

CROOKS IN THE ONLY BLACK MAN ON THE RANCH WHO GETS SEGRAGATED AND DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AS HE LIVES IN THE STABLE BY HIMSELF AND IS NOT WELCOME IN THE BUNK HOUSE

CROOKS LIVES A VERY LONELY LIFESTYLE, HE HAS NO FRIENDS ON THE RANCH AND DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE SOCIALLY, AS HE IS RUDE TO LENNIE.

CROOKS ALSO HAS A DISABILITY, HIS ''CROOKED'' BACK WITH FURTHER DISCRIMINATES HIM

CROOKS REPRESENTS ALL BLACK PEOPLE BECASUE HE IS THE ONLY BLACK PERSON PRESENT IN THE NOVEL, HE REPRESNTS THE TIME IN SOCIETY, WHEN BLACK PEOPLE WHERE HIGHLY DISCRIMINATED AGAINST.

ALSO SOME NOTES FROM BITESIZE:

  • He is always called the '******' by the men, which shows how racism is taken for granted. The men don't mean to insult Crooks every time they call him this, but they never think to use his name
  • He is the only black man around and is made to be isolated by his colour - he can't go into the bunk-house or socialise with the men.He has his own room near the stables and has a few possessions.
  • He has books, which show he is intelligent and an old copy of the California Civil Code, which suggests he is concerned about his rights
  • He has seen many men come and go, all dreaming of buying a piece of land, but is now cynical, as no one has ever achieved it.

SOMEBODY ELSE HAS POSTED ABOUT CANDY AND CURLEYS WIFE SO HAVE A LOOK AT THEIR THREADS **
