"His insistence on wearing the Confederate uniform until the day of his death in 1904 stands as a symbol of personal shame, a cross to bear. For he knew that anyone who saw the gray colors would greet him with hatred and revulsion. Those who saw the gray coat and extended their hand, in friendship and the recognition of an idea which promoted the subjugation of another race, did so at their own peril. As to the subject of racism, Jonah Hex was a man composed of hatred [...] His detestation of his fellow man was not solely focused on a specific race, color or creed. Jonah Hex loathed EVERY human soul with EQUAL enthusiasm." Seven Graves Six Feet Deep, by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti. 2008.
