Huck is ahead of his time. At one point, he finds himself apologizing to a black man,

It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger; but I done it, and I warn't ever sorry for it afterwards, neither. I didn't do him no more mean tricks, and I wouldn't done that one if I'd a knowed it would make him feel that way.

This tells us that, although a product of the South, Huck is naturally empathetic and progressive in his views of race.
