Chapter 80

  • After Eli dies, someone cuts him down. It dawns on Ben that animals are treated better than this guy was.
  • Someone asks if they should bury him, and Ben notes that Jewish people are supposed to be buried before sundown on the day they die.
  • People scoff—it figures he'd know that about Jewish people—and it's decided that Eli's body will be left on the ground.
  • Everyone starts packing up and heading home.
  • Jacob tries to reason with Ben. He's all, See? We don't hate Black people. We don't want anyone taking our jobs or land—we're so reasonable.
  • Ben can't believe what he's hearing, though, and is so angry that he walks away and doesn't even get his stuff from Jacob's house.
