No, I think that Crooks understand quickly that Lennie does not have the racist attitudes the others have. It becomes evident to Crooks that Lennie is mentally challanged. Crooks's animosity subsides when he sees Lennie's limitations. Crooks also wants the company.
Crooks is thrilled to have someone visit him.
