* MenAreBetterThanWomen: Lena is rather dismissive of Beneatha's ambitions to be a doctor, even though she does set a portion of the inheritance aside for her tuition, but then she gives it all to Walter to deposit it. Walter himself then takes all of the money to invest in the liquor store, clearly feeling that his aspirations are more important than Benetha's.

* TheUnfavorite: Benetha. It seems no matter how much Walter screws up, Lena is determined to coddle him, while Benetha is treated with derision, despite being a hard-working student with aspirations to be a ''doctor'' (a major accomplishment for a black woman even today, much less back then)

* IdiotBall: Mama giving all of the money to Walter, rather than at least giving Benetha her own portion for her tuition, and Walter for giving it all to Willie.
