“Get inside your house, monkey!” “Get inside and then we’ll burn it down!” “And once that’s down, you can join your wife and son!” “Nigger!” James cringed as the javelins plunged deep within his soul. When he was young, his father had told him that times may change, but ideals are traits handed down from daddy to son. He solemnly hoped that these kinds of traits would not exist in his lifetime. Although he couldn’t be sure who all the men were, the short heavyset man’s gait, reminded James of his neighbor, Oliver, who lived about a mile down the gravel road. “Oliver!” “Oliver is that you?” James boomed.
