Curley's wife look down on Crooks. She treats him as no more than a stable hand or a servant, and she has no problem throwing around racial slurs when she speaks to him.

When Crooks asks her to leave his room (she doesn't belong there in the first place), she reminds him that he’s a "nigger" and threatens to have him lynched.
