Crooks' Own Room

MICMEN-8JSVJX

Why doesn't Crooks bunk with the other men?

A

He's been on the ranch much longer than the other men and has earned the privilege of getting his own room.

B

He's a black man and, even though slavery has been abolished by 1930, segregation is still common and legal.

C

His father and the boss are long-time friends so Crooks gets special treatment.

D

Crooks doesn't like the other men so he's requested to sleep with the animals versus having to sleep in the main bunkhouse.

E

Crooks is being disciplined for fighting in the bunkhouse so he has to sleep in the barn for an extended period of time.
