‘Fences’ (Troy): “I told that boy about that football stuff”

TROY: The only thing I say about the A&P is I’m glad Cory got that job down there. Help him take care of his school clothes and things. Gabe done moved out and things getting tight around here. He got that job… He can start to look out for himself. I told that boy about that football stuff. The white man ain’t gonna let him get nowhere with that football. I told him when he first come to me with it. Now you come telling me he done went and got more tied up in it. He ought to go and get recruited in how to fix cars or something where he can make a living. It ain’t gonna get him nowhere. Bono’ll tell you that. What it ever get me? Ain’t got a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of.
