“Because Mary Jane ‘ll be in mourning from this out; and first you know the n***** that does up the rooms will get an order to box these duds up and put ’em away; and do you reckon a n***** can run across money and not borrow some of it?”

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 26. The Duke is saying that Mary Jane’s slave will steal all of the money if he finds it because all black people are thieves. Hypocritically the Duke and King make their living by scamming people out of money.
