One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

What implied meaning does the black boy give when he says the Chief is "Big enough to eat apples off my head and he minds me like a baby?"

What was implied? When that was said?

He means that as BIG as the chief is, he's also treats everyone gently like a child, and that even though he could hurt someone with nothing more than his size and strength, he'd never do it.
