Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

The Mallisons hire men at two different points in Intruder in the Dust to drive Mrs. Mallison. This driver takes her and her son Chick out to the Mallison farm. Drivers in the Yoknapatawpha fictions are typically black, but by not identifying this one as a Negro, the brief description of him - "a man from the garage" (70) - suggests he is more likely to be white.
