The Least Helpful Footnote Ever

From Zora Neale Hurston’s Of Mules and Men, we have the least helpful footnote ever:

“I was just Lucy Hurston’s daughter, Zora, and even if I had – to use one of our down-home expression – had a Kaiser baby*, and that’s something that hasn’t been done in the this Country yet, I’d still be just Zora to the neighbors.

*Have a child by the Kaiser.”
