2295 Relationships Interracial Domestic

This term denotes significant moments in interracial relationships within the domestic sphere. This is outside of the more binary Master-Slave or Master-Servant relationship. For example, the African-American servants in the Priest household feel little compunction about yelling at Boon, a white man. This term therefore captures those moments in which domestic labor did not cut along distinctly racial lines, although they do have a racial charge. JB
