When Curley's wife doesn't like what she hears....... she threatens;
"She turned on him in scorn. "Listen, Nigger," she said. "You know what I can do to you if you open your trap?"
Crooks stared hopelessly at her, and then he sat down on his bunk
and drew into himself. She closed on him. "You know what I could do?"
Crooks seemed to grow smaller, and he pressed himself against the
wall. "Yes, ma'am."
"Well, you keep your place then, Nigger. I could get you strung up
on a tree so easy it ain't even funny."
