Archetypal Negro: Apologetic and subservient, yet will pilfer whenever unsupervised. He schemes constantly, but lacking cleverness, always ends up in trouble when his half-baked plans fail - hence the apologetic nature.
"Some tell me 'tis a burnin' shame
To make the naygers fight,
And that the trade of bein' kilt
Belongs but to the white.
But as for me, upon my soul!
So lib'ral are we here,
I'll let Sambo be shot instead of myself
On ev'ry day in the year."
