As John and Mr. Gayle were talking, the women ran off, and yelled. ¨’ Until we as a race can learn to rise together, we’ll never get anywhere’¨ (Griffin,40).

While John was talking to the cafe lady, she says to John. ¨’Yes, and then it’s those things that cause the whites to say we’re not worthy of first class-cite ship’¨ (Griffin,40).

Mr.Gayle was talking to John about the whites being prejudice to blacks and then said ¨’so, if you want to be a good American, you’ve got to practice bad Americans. That makes sense, too’¨ (Griffin,41).

As John asked the caucasion chef to use his outhouse, the chef rudely denies his request, because of John’s dark skin and he says. “‘Nope’” (Griffin, 86).

When John was on the bus, Sterling says “‘They’re going to treat any Negro like a dog’” (Griffin, 48).
