YES! I also didn’t understand why Rose’s grandparents would be the help. But as I understand it, the white consciousnesses control the black bodies so that they are always in service to white people.

Essentially, after “coagulation,” it’s like the white people riding in a black vehicle. They get to enjoy the black person’s intelligence and strength and talent and skill without having to lift a finger themselves.
