OCTOBER 30, 1959

Summary

The author informs the FBI about his plans. He tells them that he will truthfully tell people his name and identity and then see if they treat him the same, or as a nameless Negro. One of the FBI men tells him prophetically that he will only be treated as a Negro.


Notes

In this entry in the diary the readers get a glimpse of the depth and extent of white racism against the Negro. He decides that he will not change his identity after the transformation. Having come to a decision, he wonders whether he is going to be treated as Griffin or a nameless Negro. But deep down he knows that the whites will not go beyond his skin color and that he will be treated as any other Negro. For white society, everything is but skin deep.
