Dr. Nathan Hare on Slavery to Knavery
On the eve of New Year's Day 2017, a young man asked me what's going to happen, referring to the next president, Donald Trump? What is our condition today? I could only tell him what several of my elders have told me, i.e., conditions are worse than slavery. I concurred with my elders by referring to socalled Black on Black homicide. For sure, I told the brother with a most serious demeanor, there was no epidemic of Africans killing Africans in the American slave system (Ed Howard term). Putting on my dramatist hat, I said, "Nigguh, you did what, you killed ma nigguh, nigguh, you destroyed ma property? What da hell wrong wit you, nigguh, I don't care what dat nigguh did to you, some shit about you, him and some slave woman, so you go kill ma property over some wretched wench? Overseer, come get this nigguh outta here, whip'm til he bleed to the point of death, beat dis nigguh til he scream fa Jesus to help his black ass!"
