Improved Essays
While the world of “Harry Potter” includes many different and striking characters, creatures and entities, it does not shy away from the darker aspect of having a versatile population which is resentment to the other and at time discrimination.

As soon Ron and Draco Malfoy meet each other on the train the clash between them is inevitable. Draco mocks Ron shabby and messy appearance and later Ron is embarrassed that he does not have enough money to buy sweets as harry does.

His weak social background stands out but his heritance as someone with a better grasp of good and evil and better judgment. The social mockery which Ron is victim to allows him to check himself both within its realms and out of it. His deepest desire, as we see in his reflection in the mirror of Erised is to stand
