Description

This section "Dips From The College Grin-Pot" features snippets of what was intended to be humorous dialogue. Included are six brief dialogues that feature an interaction between two people. The fifth dialogue is an interaction between two African Americans who are not given names as in the other dialogues, but rather are described with derogatory titles of "inebriated negro" and the "Negro's companion-lover." The black character is also given a distinct dialect that depicts black people as uneducated and foolish, "I dar yo' off'n hyah, you fool nigger."
