At the start of the game
Booker is asked to throw a ball at a tied up couple of a black woman and a white man. However, it's never explained why they are being balled (as in stoned, only with balls). It seems to me, from the set, that they have had interracial relations, but it's never said (at least not to me) that interracial relations are forbidden and not just frowned upon.
are they supposed to die from the balling as in a real stoning, or just be humiliated?
