5413 Black foresight Race

Any time a black character appears to have a premonition or intuition about how events will play out. I'm thinking her of Job in "Uncle Willy" who melancholically tags along even though he knows things will end badly. The same could be said for any number of Black servants who are forced to entertain their master's fancies. Dilsey is another example. JB

5415 Indistinguishable Race

Whenever a white and black character cannot be distinguished from one another, or when a white character looks black and vice versa. I'm thinking here of Uncle Willy and Secretary in the plane in "Uncle Willy", "Uncle Willy and Secretary side by side and looking exactly alike, I don't mean in the face but exactly alike two tines of a garden fork look exactly alike before they chop into the ground" (244). JB

5416 Race Technology

Whenever someone has a different interaction with technology because of their race. This is usually a Black character who is ignorant of modernity. In this example, it is Job in "Uncle Willy" who doesn't know how to use a telephone.

5418 Black body Race

Whenever a Black body is described or there is a touch between a White body and Black body. For example, the unnamed narrator describing Job's body in "Uncle Willy": "he felt like a handful of scrawny dried sticks" (246).
