Of Mice and Men

As we all know, Nigger is a word to insult Blacks, but why did Crooks call himself a Nigger and not feel anything at all?

At the time the book was written the word did not have the same connotation as it does today. None-the-less, Crooks felt comfortable using that word to describe himself, because he saw himself in a very negative way. He was isolated on the ranch, and he didn't belong to anything.
