As far as he was concerned, the counselors and wagon masters had nothing but contempt for black kids like himself. "There's a lot of prejudice there," he said. "They used the word, 'nigger.' A lot of them are from Georgia, and a lot of them are from Tennessee."
He said some tobacco-chewing counselors would get so close to him that they would spray brown spittle on his face as they yelled at him. He got into a fight with a wagon master for choking him and leaving marks on his neck.
