Class Differences in Society: By reading this story, I learned about the class differences in the society of Salem in the late seventeenth century. The fact that all of the blame was put on an African American slave woman from the start shows that the higher class people tended to blame the lower class people for their problems. Also, people accused of witchcraft instantly became looked down on in society. This relates to the fact that people tended to accuse people that were already looked down on by society in order to lend credibility to their accusation. All of these things have helped me to realize that class differences are evident in every society. It has also led me to believe that class differences significantly affect the outcome of many historical events.
