Its obvious the majority of you have never read what slaves had to say about anything.

That's the public school system for you...

Translation: Let's see, I worked for you and your family for 32 years, you didn't pay me, you treated me like an animal, you shot at me as soon as you found out that you had to let me go free, and your homeboy is telling people that he k!lling me on sight.

Man you must be out your rabid a.ss. I don't trust ya so fu*k ya. Matter of fact, send me them 11 racks you owe me as*hole.



Thank you Jourdan for telling that piece of sh*t like it is. I don't know how your story ended but its refreshing to know that even in the worst of times and circumstances you were strong enough to k!ll a muthafu*ka with kindness. He deserved what he was owed and his descendants deserve a piece of that too.

valid points taken..



to point out tho. They wrote down exactly how the slaves spoke..so its not the fault of the transcriber...if they would have corrected the translation then i can see what you'/re saying.
Words aren't spelled differently just because they're pronounced differently. I think there is an underlying racism in the use of eye dialect. There are better ways to bring across different spoken dialects when put down in writing. But that point isn't directly related to the topic at hand.

I'm saying. I'm calling bullsh*t. White ppl gonna eat this up. Sounds like pea party propaganda. Nice try tho. Especially considering them rewanting to rewrite history to paint slave masters in a more positive light. And if by some astronomical reason this is true, it just goes to show you uncle toms/sell out been in effect for decades.
This letter might have been a little too subtle for you if that's what you got from it.

Reaching for the stars much

In the op it says the daily bugle published this using dictation from the former slave. A northern newspaper during these times wouldn't write no sh*t like massa

Sometimes they were taught by a member of the family that owned them, through contact with literate slaves, by accompanying white children to school (to carry their books, etc.) and listening in, or in illegal schools run by activists.

I hate when people shoot down any kind of talk about reparations..........ask Jourdan if he feels like he or at least his descendants are owed something. Its too far gone to come up with anything far but the fact that some take the notion as absurd is an insult to the slaves whom were r*ped, tortured, abused, k!lled, lynched, burned, degraded, humiliated, a.ssimilated etc etc etc.

The people who went through that sh*t, deserve mansions and every other luxury.

That doesn't necessarily mean people 25 generations removed should receive those things.
