Some readers suggest that the "weak" character in Of Mice and Men represent groups of people who were outcasts in 1930s society(for example. Lennie would represent the mentally challenged). For each of the following characters, explain how each could represent an outcast group in society: Candy, Crooks, Curley's Wife.
So far I've got that Crook's would represent the blacks
