Crooks doesn't have a lot of options. He works because he has to. He is isolated. Crooks is forced to live in a hovel beside the horses. People only talk to him if it is work related. The rest of the time he is pretty much segregated. Of course Crooks is bitter about this. He is terribly lonely. You really have to feel for him.

Crooks attitude is to simply do what he needs to in order to make a living and that's it. He believes that the color of his skin removes all opportunity to better himself..... that's why he becomes so excited about the farm and the ability to have a place of his own...... where he can work alongside men..... not for them.
