E. Ever since the band continued their music practice with white producers, Levee never wasted any chance to seek approval of Sturdyvant. This dependence of the black people on the white community lays the foundation of Toledo’s comments.

E. These words by Ma Rainey are strongly predictive of the racial discrimination that forms the bedrock of this play. Ma Rainey was a cash cow for her producers, so they never respected her actually but still kept her for their own benefit.
B. “As soon as they get my voice down on them recording machines, then it’s just like if I’d be some whore and they roll over and put their pants on. Ain’t got no use for me then.” (Nadel, 183)
D. As soon as I let my white producers record my voice on the recording machines, I will be of no use to them. I am just a commodity for them and once I give them what they want, I will be rolled over and treated like a whore and then, I will be of no use to them.
