    Meaning of figurative language: clouds of inferiority refers to the way segregation led to African Americans to thinking of themselves as "less than"

    Effect on tone and mood: It makes the abstract have a darker tone, of sadness and impotence

    Effect on the audience: it transmits the impotence of the parent when explaining to their child why they can't go to the amusement park and in a broader sense how they are "less than"
