Some Religious People Are Now Calling Slavery A White Blessing

In the American South, half of all slaves were under the age of 16.

Infant and child mortality were high due to undernourishment. Most infants were weaned early, within three or four months of birth, and then fed gruel. They suffered from night blindness, abdominal swellings, swollen muscles, bowed legs, skin lesions, and convulsions.

About half of all U.S. slave children grew up apart from their father, either because he lived on another plantation, had been sold away, or was white.

Slave children were whipped or even required to swallow worms they failed to pick off of cotton or tobacco plants.

The top uses for slave children were cleaning and sexual abuse:

Owners often beat and raped children for pleasure as young as 10 years of age.

Science also had a use for slave children:

James Sims Is Celebrated In America As A Hero Of Science : With full support by the community, he did experimental surgery on slave children. He would operate on children using a shoemaker’s tool to pry their bones apart and loosen their skulls. These experiments had a 100% fatality rate.

  • Pedophilia
  • Child Murder
  • Child Hangings
  • Child Beatings with whips
  • Child mutilation
  • Child kidnappings
  • Child labor

Some people see this as a blessing.

  1. Hello Lander7. Hard to like the post, but the message needs to be heard. The history is clear and must not be whitewashed to soothe the fragile feelings of some people. If they are successful in rewriting the reality of slavery, then they get closer to repeating it. Some people want to remove rights from POC and deny them their humanity. They must be fought and stopped. Hugs

  3. In this digital age of enlightenment to hear such utterance is just reminded me, of my ancestry in Trinidad and Tobago who grew up on a white plantation. After slavery they got nothing. Now they call us lazy and hungry and poor, They live like kings off our ancestor’s sweat and blood, now they calling an evil thing a blessing. Do you know how difficult it is for me to hear him call evil a blessing? They took away our right to live as humans? They raped our mothers, hanged our fathers, fed us food fit for pigs. Now he calls it a blessing.
