Walker wanted readers to truly "see" things how they were.  How the Black Woman really lived, reacted, felt, dreamed, envied, etc.  They too were human beings...but did not feel, or were not viewed, as such.

 

Relationships between men, primarily white, and their treament toward Black Women was poor, unjust, ugly, and raw.
