Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

After someone opposed to Linda Snopes' attempt to improve black lives in Jefferson writes a racist epithet on the sidewalk in front of Flem's house in The Mansion (250), this neighbor "viciously, angrily" uses a broom to "obscure" the words (251) - not, the narrative notes, because she shares "Linda's impossible dream," but "because she lived on this street" (251).
