Part two of this series deals with the demasculinization of the black man, and how that affected the black woman and children. The slave owners viewed the black woman as the money maker, and was considered “good economics.” The black woman was considered extremely valuable because after “breeding” the woman gives birth to the children, and potentially raise the child how the slave owners prefer them to due to the psychological hold. The demasculinization process played a huge role in how the children was raised and developed. The slave owners would demasculinization the males in front of the women which made the men seem weak and not fit to be the head of a family. This rewires her way of thinking which will directly affect the children. The following is a excerpt from the Willie Lynch Letter.
“We have reversed the relationships. In natural state she would have a strong dependency on the the uncivilized nigger male, and she would had a limited protective dependency towards her independent male offspring and would raise her female offspring to be independent like her. Nature had provided for this type of balance. We reversed nature by burning & pulling one civilized nigger apart & bull whipped the other male to the point of death, all in her presence. By her being left alone, unprotected, with the male image destroyed, the ordeal caused her to move from her psychological dependent state to a frozen dependent state. In this state she will raise her male and female offspring in reversed gender roles. For the fear of the young male’s life she will psychologically train him to be mentally weak & dependent, but physically strong. Because she has been psychologically independent, she will train her female offspring to be psychologically independent as well.”
The same cycle exists today, and is extremely prevalent. In today’s society the physical conditions aren’t similar to our ancestors, but the mental conditions are. The lack of fathers, single mothers, and children with reversed gender roles, equate to a broken community. We must continue to release each other from this psychological mind control, and awaken out inner royalty. We control our future.
