How and why does Burns make trouble for Curzon?

Burns hates curzon because of curzons race. And he makes trouble for curzon whenever he can. "I will have your boots now private Smith it is fair compensation" 'I'll report you to the captain' "Please do i've already told him how much of a trouble maker you are, he is not fond of dark skinned soldiers, did you know that'?. "When i woke up my boota were gone my belly hurt wicked, and my skull felt like it had been hit with a hammer.-Halse pg 137. I think burns made the up the part where he said that the captain is not found of black soldiers, and he was trying t0 say that to curzon. Burns tells everyone lies about curzon just because he want to get curzon in trouble. "Eben took his turn at dawn, get off plaguey backside and do your duty". "My arm hurts, fetch the wood for me, you dirty negar". That confirms that burns doesn't care about curzon because of curzon's race
