This is one of the first scenes in the book. This stood out to me because it showed something that Troy was concerned about.
I went to Mr. Rand and asked him, 'Why?' Why you got the white men driving and the colored lifitng?' Told him, 'what's the matter, don't I count? You think only white fellows got sense enough to drive a truck.
I told Brownie if the man come and ask him any questions... just tell the truth! It ain't something they done trumped up on you cause you filed a complaint on them.
Brownie don't understand nothing. All I want them to do is change the job description. Give everybody a chance to drive the truck. Brownie can't see that. He ain't got that much sense.
