It's a case of reverse racism, as a white-hating black outlaw couple kidnap Hoss, hold him hostage in the mountains and scheme to kill him. The couple are on the run from the law after killing a white burglar (who killed their son), and they surmise that the law looks the other way when whites kill blacks but persecute with a vengeance when blacks are the killers.
