  2. ^ Although the system of slavery is seen by all to be normal, blacks are shown as non-cooperative when possible. For example, when at one point Roxy escapes, she knows that other blacks will not be helpful in tracking her down:'I had a pow'ful good start, 'ca'se de big house 'uz three mile back f'om de river en on'y de work mules to ride dah on, en on'y niggers ride 'em, en DEY warn't gwine to hurry—dey'd gimme all de chance dey could.' (Pudd'nhead Wilson, Chapter 18.)
