Biography: 

Lucas Beauchamp compares George Wilkins favorably as a son-in-law to "the other buck niggers in that neighborhood" (213), terms that refer to other eligible young black males who live on or near the Edmonds plantation. The vicious insult that, for good reasons, we now hear in that term would not have been felt or meant by Lucas.
