while a lot of black people say stuff like slavery is history and has no bearing in today's society i say slavery has a lot of bearing in today's society

it has bearing on why black men and women can't seem to get on . it has bearing on why white women have great hate for black women and are out for revenge i(n my opinion )

it has bearing on why so many black babies are killed every day.....

i had not intended to post this when bp said the link had biin posted i canceled the damn thing and bp still sent it through ...


but since they did
here is a cept from the article that's interesting

''In 1815 European women owned 24% of those enslaved in St Lucia. In Barbados 40% of properties with 10 or less enslaved people were owned by women. In Bridgetown, Barbados women were the principal slave owners, using slaves in domestic occupations.

In the past it was assumed that female slave owners were not as brutal as their male counterparts. However, this wasn?t a sex divide.

There were good and bad male and female slave owners. Some of the harshest treatments could be vetted out by a slave owner?s wife against a female slave who her husband had been intimate with or an enslaved child that was the result of a sexual encounter between her husband and a slave.


Some European women took out revenge on the enslaved for their punishment by cruel fathers or husbands. European

women?s cruelty shocked many observers in the Caribbean. Mary Prince stated that her mistress caused me to know the exact difference between the smart of the rope,

the cart-whip, and the cow-skin, when applied to my naked body by her own cruel hand. And there was scarcely any punishment more dreadful than the blows I received on my face and head from her hard, heavy fist. She was a fearful woman, and a savage mistress to her slaves ....

THE EVENTS OF SLAVERY IS WHAT HAS DEFINED AND DETERMINED HOW BLACK MEN AN WOMEN ACT TODAY

BELOW IS FROM AN ARTICLE I WAS READING


' Black slave women were also frequently pregnant. The institution of slavery depended on Black women to supply future slaves. By every method imaginable, slave women were "encouraged" to reproduce.

Some slavers, for example, offered a new pig for each child born to a slave family, a new dress to the slave woman for each surviving infant, or no work on Saturdays to Black women who produced six children.

15 Young Black girls were encouraged to have sex as "anticipatory socialization" for their later status as "breeders."

When they did reproduce, their fecundity was seen, as proof of their insatiable sexual appetites. Deborah Gray White, a contemporary historian, wrote:


Major periodicals carried articles detailing optimal conditions under which bonded women were known to reproduce, and the merits of a particular "breeder" were often the topic of parlor or dinner table conversations.



The fact that something so personal and private became a matter of public discussion prompted one ex-slave to declare that "women wasn't nothing but cattle." Once reproduction became a topic of public conversation, so did the slave woman's sexual activities.16

COULD THAT BE THE REASON WHY BLACK WOMEN DO NOT WANT TO HAVE ONE THAT 2 CHILDREN?


The Jezebel stereotype is contradicted by several historical facts. Although Black women, especially those with brown or tan skin and "European features," were sometimes forced into prostitution for White men, "slaves had no prostitution and very little venereal disease within their communities."

17 Slaves rarely chose spouses from among their blood relatives.


Slavers often encouraged, and sometimes mandated, sexual promiscuity among their slaves; nevertheless, most slaves sought long-term, monogamous relationships.

Slaves "married" when allowed, and adultery was frowned upon in most Black "communities." During Reconstruction "slaves eagerly legitimated their unions, holding mass-marriage ceremonies and individual weddings."18 ''

BLACK WOMEN AND MEN ARE SO TRAUMATISED BY SLAVERY THAT TODAY
WE FIGHT EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF FIGHTING THOSE WHO AFFLICTED THE ATROCITIES ON US.
A CASE OF TAKING YOUR FRUSTRATION OUT ON THOSE CLOSEST TO YOU.


FROM THE ARTICLE


The portrayal of Black women as Jezebel %#&@$!s began in slavery, extended through the Jim Crow period, and continues today. Although the Mammy caricature was the dominant popular cultural image of Black women from slavery to the 1950s,

the depiction of Black women as Jezebels was common in American material culture. Everyday items ? such as

ashtrays, postcards, sheet music, fishing lures, drinking glasses, and so forth ? depicted naked or scantily dressed Black women,



lacking modesty and sexual restraint. For example, a metal nutcracker (circa 1930s) depicts a topless Black woman. The nut is placed under her skirt, in her crotch, and crushed.21 Items like this one reflected and shaped White attitudes toward Black female sexuality

. An analysis of the Jezebel images in the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia reveals several patterns.

swizzle sticks Many of the Jezebel objects caricature and mock African women. For example, in the 1950s "ZULU LULU" was a popular set of swizzle sticks used for stirring drinks.

There were several versions of this product but all show silhouettes of naked African women of various ages. One version read: "Nifty at 15, spiffy at 20, sizzling at 25, perky at 30, declining at 35, droopy at 40."


There were versions that included depictions of African women at fifty and sixty years of age. ZULU LULU was billed as a party gag as illustrated by this advertisement on the product:

Don't pity Lulu ? you're not getting younger yourself?laugh with your guests when they find these hilarious swizzle sticks in their drinks. ZULU-LULU will be the most popular girl at your party.
