Huck doesn't have the ingrained racism that most of his fellow white people have. When he sees Jim, he is glad to have a companion. It could be said that Huck immediately senses a kindred spirit in the escaped slave. There is also a sense of empathy on Huck's part when Jim tells him how the bank lost all his money.
