Chief believes the black boys are simply an extension of Nurse Ratched's power. He stays as far away as possible.

"Black boys in white suits up before me to commit sex acts in the hall and get it mopped up before I can catch them."

"Stick a mop in my hand and motion to the spot they aim for me to clean today, and I go. One swats the backs of my legs with a broom handle to hurry me past."

"They laugh and then I hear them mumbling behind me, heads close together. Hum of black machinery, humming hate and death and other hospital secrets. They don’t bother not talking out loud about their hate secrets when I’m nearby because they think I’m deaf and dumb."
