The Position – Warning: Possible Interloping Negatives
Earlier we talked about the non-economic good of the horse and the nigger in their wild or natural state; we talked out the principle of breaking and tying them together for orderly production. Furthermore, we talked about paying particular attention to the female savage and her offspring for orderly future planning. Then more recently we stated that by reversing the positions of the male and female savages we created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever, unless a phenomenon occurs and re-shifts the positions of the male and female savages. Our experts warned us about the possibility of this phenomenon occurring. They advised us that the best way to deal with the phenomenon is to shave off the brute’s mental history and create a multiplicity of phenomena of illusions, so that each illusion will twirl in its own orbit, something similar to floating balls in a vacuum.
This creation of multiplicity of phenomena of illusions entails the principle of crossbreeding the nigger and the horse as we stated above. The purpose of which is to create a diversified division of labor, thereby creating different levels of labor and different values of illusion at each connecting level of labor. The results of which is the severance of the points of original beginnings for each sphere illusion. Since we feel that the subject matter may get more complicated as we proceed in laying down our economic plan concerning the purpose, reason and effect of crossbreeding horses and niggers, we shall lay down the following definition terms for future generations.
Orbiting cycle means a thing turning in a given path. Axis means upon which or around which a body turns. Phenomenon means something beyond ordinary conception and inspires awe and wonder. Multiplicity means a great number. Sphere means a globe. Cross breeding a horse means taking a horse and breeding it with an ass and you get a dumb backward ass long headed mule that is neither reproductive nor productive by itself.
Crossbreeding niggers mean taking so many drops of good white blood and putting them into as many nigger women as possible, varying the drops by the various tones that you want, and then letting them to breed with each other until another cycle of color appears as you desire. What this means is this: Put the niggers and the horse in a breeding pot, mix some asses and some good white blood and what do you get? You got a multiplicity of colors of ass backward, unusual niggers, running, tied to a backward ass long headed mule; the one productive of itself, the other sterile. (The one constant, the other dying, we keep the nigger constant for we may replace the mules for another tool) both mule and nigger tied to each other, neither knowing where the other came from and neither productive for itself, nor without each other.
The Plight – True lies
Some things have made absolutely no sense to me, until now. I often wondered how a person could look you straight in the face, tell you a lie and expect you to believe it. How could they just speak an untruth, that you both knew to be untrue, yet speak it as if it were true? This is another form of mental manipulation. Once you hear the lie, even though knowing it not to be true, when the speaker speaks with such certainty, a part of you begins to question whether it is in fact or a lie. You start to question your own beliefs that you once knew unequivocally to be truth.
The above passage confirmed a truth that I had long believed but didn’t quite know how to expound upon. People can convince themselves that anything is true and if they speak it with enough conviction, regardless of its basis in fact, others will believe it.
Through all of the rhetoric in the previous passage, which I am sure Lynch made sound so eloquent; he essentially stated that by mixing the strength of the African slave with a few drops of white blood, the Africans would lose their minds and their sense of identity. I find this both comical and ironic. On the one hand, Lynch presents his culture to be the superior and dominate culture but on the other hand, he is stating that his culture is more destructive and only a few drops of their blood mixed with the Africans would create a phenomenon to change their culture’s orbiting cycle.
I’m sure you are just as confused as I am and I wonder how many people heard this exposition and thought; yeah this is a great idea. If we cross-bread their culture with ours we will prove that we are a stronger race by using our blood to weaken them. I may not be the brightest brick on the block but this sounds like an admission that their culture was inferior and was needed to reduce the dominance of the Africans.
The Possibility – I see color
The premise of this method of containing the African culture was to dilute the color spectrum as a means of pitting the members against one another. This refers back to Part 1 – highlight the differences within the culture and attempt to exploit them within the group.
Let us seriously consider how this theory has manifested in present day society.
The African-American culture is filled with a broad spectrum of pigments from caramel to milk chocolate to mocha to dark chocolate. In some circles these hues are celebrated while others have issue with those “so light until they look white” or those whose broad noses and full lips more closer resemble our African ancestors. The exploitation of these differences was a means of making an ass of our culture. How foolish would we be not to want to associate with one another because of the hue of our skin? How ignorant would a culture be to disassociate because of hair texture? What could be the future of a culture intently focused on its external differences? How could that culture thrive economically if they could not get past such petty differences?
Well, look around. Since the days of slavery, there have been segments of our culture that have taken these small differences and created a wedge based on physical differences. We are more alike than we are different regardless of how much we try to assume that there are superior features in our society. Yet determinations about people are often based on how they look. We accuse other cultures of racially profiling us when we do it to ourselves.
Up 4 Discussion…
1) What are some stereotypes regarding color differences that exist within the African-American culture?
2) How are these stereotypes divisive within the African-American culture?
