The Book Bloodline is a collection of five short stories and the longest and perhaps the best is called Bloodline. This short story while being humorous at times, demonstrates the racism of the Louisiana plantation system after the Civil War up until the Civil Rights Movement of the sixties. After that war, Blacks were given nothing and were then basically left with the only option of working long arduous hours for minimal wages and being completely disrespected and endangered 24 hours a day. The lands were owned by Whites and passed onto Whites with virtually little possibility that a Black would ever own land. Even a White man who bore a child by a Black woman would then completely disrespect that Black throughout his life as if he were just another inferior Black. But in the Bloodline story, the half white man refuses to submit and warns his White uncle that White domination would one day come to an end.
