In “The Color of Water” written by James McBride covers the story of a biracial man that is trying to find out more about his white mother. Throughout the book James McBride discusses how racism and acceptance from people can be difficult.
Whenever Ruth or James McBride face any forms of racism, especially for being related to each other, having different skin colors, they can always look to religion to aid them through these tough times. It appears so in the book, that religion knows no race, and therefore is very accepting to anybody, no matter who it may be. In this case, in Chapter 6, the author tells about his past.
