Big Ma doesn't want Cassie to tell what happened with the SimmsesSimmses in Strawberry. Why not?

I don't really understand it...

Big Ma knew that apologizing to Mr. Simmons was the least of their worries. Big Ma didn't want to make more of the situation than it already was. Apologizing to a white man, even if Cassie was innocent, was not worth making an issue of that could hurt them later.
