Williams analyses misunderstandings between Northerns and Southerns and points out the Northerners frequently think things are worse than they are for Black people in the South, and as an example he points out that the only time he encountered the “n word” was in Vermont, not South Carolina. He also shares his thoughts about divorce.

Keywords:   Divorce, Racial epithets, Vermont, South Carolina
