Two days later, and Griffin is spending three days in Mobile. What did he do? Walk around looking for jobs. And how many jobs did he find? Zero.
One guy actually outright tells him that the white people at his job are orchestrating a plan to drive out all the black people from their company and from all of Alabama. That amount of straight up racism is shocking.
This isn't Griffin's first time in Mobile. He's been here before as a white guy, preparing to ride on a fancy ship all the way to France.
Back then he thought that southern white people were kind and wise, and black people did terrible jobs because those were the only ones they could do. Now, as a black man, he sees that's not the case.
