As for bigger cities, either living in them or even going to them -- here was his reactions:
- Indianapolis -- doubtful.
- Chicago -- very doubtful.
- New York -- no way!
He told me he couldn't live in cities like Indianapolis, let alone Chicago or New York, because there was too much traffic and that would drive him crazy. I also knew he couldn't tolerate the greater number of black people who live in those cities, but I kept that to myself. I didn't want to alienate him because of his racism, but I would try like hell not to keep in that much contact with him.
