Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

Lee Goodwin has a relationship with this woman while he is stationed in the Philippines. Ruby calls her a "nigger" when telling Temple about how Lee killed another American soldier in a fight over her (59), but since Ruby would be likely to use that term for any non-white person, Negro or Hispanic, it leaves open the question of the woman's racial identity.
