This sees him join the seven days black people movement. On the other hand, milkman is seemingly unconcerned with race issues or the black oppression. This is a thing that was embedded in his mind from an early age due to the wealthy background he hails from. Therefore this money keeps him from socializing with people thus he is very disconnected and dose not know the pain and suffering the black people are going through. For example when guitar tells him of the plight of black people using an example of the boy till, milkman says, “…fuck till…” (Morrison, 152)Guitar feels that milkman is a womanizer and uses women and that he should stop. A tender, soft and loving side of guitar is revealed in the way he treats Hagar. He is the one who comforts her when milkman abandons her. In fact he takes her home when he finds her sobbing in his house with a knife in his hand. She had tied to kill milkman because of all the pain he is causing her. Guitar talks to milkman who does not listen. This makes them grow even further apart since guitar has stopped his partying ways. These conflicts get even rife when guitar thinks that milkman is trying to swindle him of his gold. He is so obsessed with the gold and with his growing hatred of milkman he decides to kill him on more than one occasion.The conflict goes on and is evidenced in guitars ironically talks. It is as if he mocks milkman every time they talk. For example he says, “I live in the north now. So the first question comes to mind is north of what? North of south. So north exists because south does. But does that mean north is different than south? No way south is just south of. Milkman and Guitars Conflict.
