I didn't really think of it as two characters who are white creating sympathy for characters with a diverse background. More as two characters with a relatively "safe" background helping to create sympathy for characters with a more troubled past.

The author did a good job touching on real-life issues currently existing in America. I believe the media plays a big part in the racism problems we have today. The book did not increase my compassion because I am already extremely compassionate about it all.

I think the author did a great thing of trying to put reality and imaginiation together. He made most of his characters come from different background but his main characters were still white. Just like in society were we may be a diverse country, the people on top are still white just like his characters.
I know I'm late to this forum- but I just wanted to say that this is a great answer. Really sad and unfortunately true.
