Man fu*k y'all saying this is a good read, how is it a good read? is it good to see how slaverly broke down the mentality of blacks back then? How this former slave was willing to come back and serve as a worker to a individual who owned him and required him to address him as master? ..or how he shot at him at numerous occassions, yet this dude is still willing to come back if the circumstances are right? i'm truely disgusted by slavery and how it gave whites the idea that they are the inferior race..how they spent everyday treating their slaves like pieces of sh*t(granted some slave masters were nicer compared to the others) and delegating every moment of their slaves lives..how a lot of slaves were uneducated and didn't know any better so they went along with the bs, with the false hope that something positive would come out of it ..these slave owners really fu*ked up all their slaves, mentally(through the constant degrading/verbal abuse) and physically(with the constant hard labor/abuse)..it's amazing to me that sh*t like that even happened..can you imagine having a human being as a pet that you treat like sh*t and don't give a fu*k about? Because that's what slavery basically was..blacks were pets..thank god i'm not from here and none of my ancestors ever were slaves(i'm ethiopian, we were never colonized!! we're still a 3rd world country though ) if i was alive and out here in the time of slavery, i'd fu*k and k!ll all of the slave masters wives, and daughters who were 18 and older..then of course k!ll the slave masters, in the attempt of freeing all the slaves..that's the way i'd go out..fu*k lettting anyone control my life and calling someone master that isn't GOD

wowwww...slaves had stockholm syndrome..the man slaved you and your whole bloodline and probably r*ped the sh*t out of your mother and sisters AND he shot at you when he found out he had to release you and treat you like a human being but yet you still wanted to go back?...i know that was the only life they knew back then but for crying out loud man i hope all slaves weren't like this and he was just one of the house negroes
It seems this uneducated "house negro" has an intelligence, humour and wit that far exceed your own.

If you can't tell that the letter was tongue-in-cheek and that he intellectually sh*t on his former owner then you clearly have the IQ of a gnat.

sounded like he was taking the p!ss out of him to me. probably would have took the money and ran. i would have.
Seems like somewhere between when this was written and where we are now, the Yanks lost their ability to pick up on subtly and humour.

He was absolutely taking the piss. Wouldn't you have loved to been there when the slave master reacted to the letter! Probably had a fu*king stroke :agreement6:

What makes you think he was willing to return to work for him? I see nothing in the letter that would suggest anything of the kind.

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.
See this is that usual as*hole logic u get from america. So, if I ask u for my money, and u wait till I die, then my kids and their kids ask for my money, and u wait till they die, u now feel justified to say "hey it was so long ago, u don't deserve it anymore. Maybe u shoulda came to get it sooner ya fu*king ****."

Exactly. And let's just forget about all of other mistreatments to black that occurred years AFTER slavery lol....We deserve reparations for Jim Crow laws and segregation alone, let's forget about slavery and we still have arguments for reparations. But we know it's not going to happen in America.

Who is demanding that jews get anything for the holocaust?
Ignorant soul you, the Jews were given reparations for the Holocaust:

ImplementationDespite the protests, the agreement was signed in September of that year, and West Germany paid Israel a sum of 3 billion marks over the next fourteen years; 450 million marks were paid to the World Jewish Congress. The payments were made to the State of Israel as the heir to those victims who had no surviving family. The money was invested in the country's infrastructure and played an important role in establishing the economy of the new state. The reparations would become a decisive part of Israel's income, comprising as high as 87.5% of the state income in 1956.[3]

Yad Vashem noted that "in the 1990s, Jews began making claims for property stolen in Eastern Europe. Various groups also began investigating what happened to money deposited in Swiss banks by Jews outside of Switzerland who were later murdered in the Holocaust, and what happened to money deposited by various Nazis in Swiss banks. In addition, individual companies (many of them based in Germany) began to be pressured by survivor groups to compensate former forced laborers. Among them are Deutsche Bank AG, Siemens AG, Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), Volkswagen AG, and Adam Opel GmbH. In response, early in 1999, the German government proclaimed the establishment of a fund with monies from these companies to help needy Holocaust survivors. A similar fund was set up by the Swiss, as was a Hungarian fund for compensation of Holocaust victims and their heirs. At the close of the 1990s, discussions of compensation were held by insurance companies that had before the war insured Jews who were later murdered by the Nazis. These companies include Allianz, AXA, a.ssicurazioni Generali, Zürich Financial Services Group, Winterthur, and Baloise Insurance Group. With the help of information about Holocaust victims made available by Yad Vashem, an international commission under former US Secretary of State, Lawrence Eagleburger, has been trying to uncover the names of those who had been insured and died in the Holocaust. The World Jewish Restitution Organization was created to organize these efforts. On behalf of US citizens, the US Foreign Claims Settlement Commission reached agreements with the German government in 1998 and 1999 to compensate Holocaust victims who immigrated to the US after the war."

[edit] Reopened claimsIn 2007, Israeli MK Rafi Eitan made suggestions that were interpreted as a claim to reopen the agreement, although he insisted that he merely intended to "establish a German-Israeli work team that would examine how Germany could help the financially struggling survivors".[8] German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrück originally argued Germany would not consider expanding the agreement,[9] but later German government spokesman Thomas Steg said that Germany was willing to discuss the possibility of making extra pension payments to Holocaust survivors if the Israeli government makes an official request.[10]

[edit] Further claims in 2009In 2009, Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz announced that he will demand a further €450 million to €1 billion in reparations from Germany on behalf of some 30,000 Israeli forced labor survivors.[11] Israel has also sought large discounts on the purchase of two German-built MEKO warships.[12

So you're saying you personally feel you are owed money because of how your ancestors were treated?

I'm not saying it's fake because idk but he has very good English and writes very well for a former slave. The letter was written in 1865 but gained his freedom in 1864? How did his old master find out where he was, to send him a letter? Something just doesn't add up to me at least.

The reason i say this is because if you have read or heard the ex "slave narratives" that provided an invaluable first-person account of slavery from the 1930s...the grammar, tone, style sentence structure is totally different. Words are spelled correct. Also the lack of racial language is missing. It would be very cool if this is real but from my understanding...this is questionable.

A couple of examples for those who don't know what I'm talking about.
realize that it doesnt take much for someone to write something for you, thats always been a given. He speaks of his children's growing education and it was never really hard for slave masters to find escaped or ex slaves, many slave families in Canada and up and down the east coast could agree with that

funny how that doesnt translate to native indians.,...or jews huh?

their descendants get paid beaucoup dollars for what happened to their ancestors...

naaah..them negroes however dont deserve nothing cuz it happened to their granddaddies..lol

jews runnin the show right now. slavery was f**ked up, and the holocaust was f**ked up. the jews were overcompensated (6 million jews? we're already at 1 million iraqi civies with our current invasion) and the blacks undercompensated (n*ggas aint get sh*t up until the 80's- the beginnings of real acceptance) but in reality the ones who REALLY deserve everything are the native inhabitants of the americas. native americans and native south americans who were almost completely eradicated, and some who WERE completely wiped out.

NO ONE today deserves anything that they can't get for themselves.

Man you must be out your rabid a.ss [mind]. 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.

Yo you're way off base. He never had intentions of going back. He was pretty much telling the Colonel to go fu*k himself because he didn't trust him and because he had a much better life where he was.
