QUESTION 3
INTERVIEWER:

UH, IN THE PRE-INTERVIEW, YOU TALKED ABOUT SOME OF THE WARNINGS YOUR MOTHER HAD GIVEN YOU BEFORE LEAVING, ABOUT SAYING "YES SIR" AND "NO SIR," AND BEING, JUST KIND OF DEALING WITH THE SOUTHERN, YOU KNOW, BEING CORDIAL, AND DEALING WITH THE SOUTHERN KIND OF WAY, TALK ABOUT THAT.

Curtis Jones:

Yes, before I left going down there my mother, you know, advised me to make sure, you know, when, uh, I came in contact with a white person, make sure I say a "Yes sir" and "No sir," you know. And, uh, so I understood that, you know. So when I got down there I really didn't come in contact with no white person until after he was killed, you know.
