He encourages his nephew to be strong and not give up, and help make America what it needs to become. Because the incarcerated population is not counted in censuses, the public tends to have an overly rosy picture of the economic status of African Americans, as a large percentage of the poorest black people are excluded from the data. The hunters race back to the beach to steal fire. The criminal justice system must be changed to prevent crime rather than create it, and to no longer act as a system of racial if not social control. The group figures out that the arena has different danger zones that go off on schedule, according to the hour, and are organized in the shape of a clock.
Tashian dies from a stroke because she's too overwhelmed with grief. Baldwin recognizes that this is, of course, a difficult thing to tell his nephew so bluntly, but he maintains that James can derive power and mobility from knowing the circumstances from which he has sprung.
