"try again in six months. well, i went up in six months". I chose this quote becuase this is when he was trying to get a pardon on his trial and get out of prison. I liked this becuase time after time of getting rejected he still went and tried to get a pardon and eventually it pays off in the end. What he tells us about our culture is how much it has changed since hes been locked up. The laws have changed as well as the rights for black.
This profile relates to our culture becuase of civil rights. Hes been locked up since 1958 when black segregation was very strong and blacks had no where near equal rights. His trial happened before any major break throughs with civil righs acts to end segregation. In the world today the cops would have never showed up to Moreese's house becuase back then they could get away with something like that. Also in todays world people wouldnt be as afraid to testify against them becuase the cival rights have changed greatly. it wasnt till 6 years after he was put in prison that the civil right act of 1964 was put into place making blacks rights more equal to the whites.
