Storyboard Text

  • I didn't get a lot of grain this year
  • Dolphus Raymond  spends  time with the black community
  • We bought a car
  • He has an Afro-American wife whom he loves
  • The theme of Equality towards the segregated community 
  • I wonder what's for dinner
  • And two  mulatto  children
  • "We live way down near the country line"
  • ugh
  • "He likes 'em[ black people] better'n he likes us [...] He's got a colored woman and all sorts of mixed chillun."
  • He gets criticized  by the other white folk
  • He pretends to be drunk but actually drinks Coca-Cola
  • "He owns all one side of the riverbank down there, and he's from a real old family to boot.'"
  • Then why does he  drink Coca-Cola and pretends to be drunk?
  • The theme of racial injustice  is evident because he must  pretend to evade  being  judged on a severe  level
  • He tries to make people believe that alcohol is the reason he lives with the black people to avoid the truth.
  • "It helps folks if they can latch onto a reason... folks can say Dolphus Raymond's in the clutches of whiskey--that's why he won't change his ways... that's why he lives the way he does."
