In Act Two, Scene One, when Troy is explaining why he cheated on her, he says: “I can step out of this house and get away from the pressures and problems… be a different man. I ain’t gotta worry about how I’m gonna pay the bills or get the roof fixed.” (Wilson page 68-69).

Being apart of something so inhumane, so brutal taking control of others just to feel in control of oneself.
