Elaborate uses of race unprecedented statements about the role of religion and an overall mockery of the society of the old south serve as a method of conveying Mark Twains opinion of society In his dandy riverboat adventure The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Mark Twain attacks the traditions of slavery racism and the accepted traditions of the old south He helped expose the hypocrisies of the southern society through this novel Twain stands firmly by his principles He is a firm believer that slavery is sinister It was a wretched institution that was necessary to be eliminated He said slavery was bad mainly because it was hypocritical We see this hypocrisy throughout the book when Huck is able to interact with Jim and also learn from him while the southern slave society treats Jim as nothing more than an object We see the southern perception of black people in chapter thirty-two when Huck tells to Aunt Sally his story about the blown cylinder head When she asks him if anyone was hurt he said nom Killed a nigger When she shows no emotion in her reaction it shows us how many southern whites looked at blacks We also see at many times during the novel that Huck and Jim have a true friendship The go out of their way at many times for the welfare of eachother and they develop a relationship to which they both contribute Huck teaches Jim about diversity priests and rulers in chapter fourteen when he reads to him about Solomon and Frenchmen Jim also teaches Huck an important lesson on how people should be treated individually Another example Twain uses to show the hypocrisies of society is racism Twain is not attacking the whole issue of race as much as the role race plays in society Twain uses race to demonstrate the hypocrisy of the rich and well refined He starts demonstrating these falsities
