Character Role Analysis
Harlan Granger, the Wallaces, the Simms family
These guys are just all around bad news. They want whites to be at the top of the power structure at all costs, and will not put up with anyone stepping out of his place. And what's more, they're either murderers, or are all too willing to turn a blind eye to murder.
