  1. Hazel’s feelings towards Sogoji changed because she finally figures out that he does not really know if he is American or Japanese, so he is not sure which side he wants to win. Hazel insults the japanese and his hero, a Japanese story character named Kintaro. He stomps off, and doesn't come back. She feels bad about what she said, so she makes up for it by standing up for Japanese people at school. I think she is sorry that she judged him, and tries to make up for it when she thinks about what the play manager said about the “Dove of Peace.” When Mr. Lanski says that Sogoji doesn’t quite know if he is an American or a Japanese person, he means that Sogoji doesn’t know who he is rooting for, and that is hard. His home country(America) is at war with his native country(Japan). Hazel can help Sogoji figure out who he is by letting him choose his own path. Since the decision is up to Sogoji, I don’t think Hazel should intervene, because that might cause Sogoji to get the impression that all americans are pushy and wanting other people to do what ever that person wants.
