Homework Help: English

Hi, I am writing a paper about the Cathedral by Raymond Carver. This is my intro. and i was wondering if it was a solid opening and has a good thesis statement.

In the short story Cathedral, by Raymond Carver, the narrator refers to Robert as "this blind man." Not only is he categorizing Robert, but he's also making wrongful assumptions about people who have disabilities. Instead of assuming, he should sympathize and try to think about the positives. Being blind is just one aspect of Robertsís life and it doesn't define who he is as a person. Initially he sees Robert as a stereotypical blind man and not a normal human being. Despite his first preconceived notions upon meeting Robert, the man learns to accept him for who he is, and learns to respect him. Certain events throughout the story lead to his transformation from one who stereotypes to someone who has a better understanding and new found respect for blind people.
