Boy 2: (in Hester Sue's flashback) Wishing is all you can do.
Boy 1: How do you know? I've been good!
Boy 2: You think Santa Claus cares if you're good?
Boy 1: Sure he does.
Boy 2: You'll learn when you get older. Santa don't bring nothing like that to black children. It's all for the whites.
Boy 1: How do you know that?
Boy 2: Just look at him! He's a white man! He takes care of his own.
