The Soloist by Steve Lopez

The Soloist by Steve Lopez

INSTRUCTIONS:

The class is Literature for American Minorities. The assignment is very generic: “Read the Soloist by Steve Lopez and write about any topic of interest that discusses issues or characters within the book.” Topic chosen is Judgment and the Color-Line. There must be a strong thesis statement. 



Below is a starting paragraph introducing the topic and a thesis for the paper; however, this does not necessarily have to be used. 



“He’s coming around in his own way, and it has to be that way. With us supporting him and earning his trust. Otherwise you could lose him forever." (Lopez, 2008, p. 135).

The Soloist is about a strange and unique friendship amongst a successful white man, Steve, and a schizophrenic black man, Nathanial. Nathanial is, or at least could have been, one of the country’s musical geniuses; however, due to his illness Nathanial is homeless. The story is about how, upon befriending Nathaniel, Steve has to learn to let go of his “white” judgments and allow Nathanial to be his own person and live with the lifestyle choices he pursues. This release must be done regardless of his own cultural beliefs of what is right and what is wrong.

The whole story is meant to bring about the racial differences and decisions that people make on individuals depending on their color and individuality. Steve Lopez in his book, he introduces us to Steve, a Loss Angeles Times Columnist who after some time identifies a black man dwelling in the streets. The writer brings out the the racial differences as held whites over blacks. Throughout the book, Steve’s view of Nathaniel is that of someone who is inadequate. This shows the inherent idea of the whites that blacks are not as better as they are. Pershing Square, where Nathaniel would play his violin, was the point of me...
