THE WILLIE LYNCH SPEECH
Gentlemen, I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies where I have experimented with some of the newest and still the oldest methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its old highways in great numbers, you are using the tree and the rope on occasion.
I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree a couple of miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprising, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentleman, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems; I am here to introduce you to methods of solving them.
In my bag here, I have a foolproof method for controlling your Black slaves. I guarantee every one of you that if installed correctly it will control the slaves for at least 300 years. My method is simple; any member of your family or any overseer can use it.
I have outlined a number of differences among the slaves, and I take these differences and make them bigger. I use fear, distrust, and envy for control purposes. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies, and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “Age” but it is there only because it starts with “A”, the second is “Color” or shade, there is intelligence, size, sex, size of plantations, status on plantation, attitude of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair or coarse hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that I shall assure you that distrust is stronger than trust, and envy is stronger than adulation, respect, or admiration.
The black slave, after receiving this indoctrination, shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for hundreds of years, maybe thousands.
Don’t forget, you must pit the old black male vs. the young black male, and the young black male against the old black male. You must use the dark skin slaves vs. the light skin slaves, and the light skin slaves vs. the dark skin slaves. You must use the female vs. the male, and male vs. the female. You must also have all your white servants and overseers distrust all blacks but it is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect and trust only us.
Understanding is the best thing. Therefore, we shall go deeper into this area of the subject matter concerning what we produced here in this breaking process of the female nigger. We have reversed the relations. In her natural uncivilized state she would have a strong dependency on the uncivilized nigger male, and she would have a limited protective tendency toward her independent male offspring and would raise the female offspring to be dependent like her. Nature had provided for this type of balance. We reversed nature by burning and pulling one civilized nigger apart and bull whipping the other 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 independent state. In the frozen psychological state of independence she will raise her male and female offspring in reverse roles. For fear of the young male’s life, she will psychologically train him to be mentally weak and dependent but physically strong.
Because she has become psychologically independent, she will train her female offspring to be psychologically independent. What you got? You’ve got the nigger woman out front and the nigger man behind and scared. This is a perfect situation for sound sleep and economics. Before the breaking process, we had to be alertly on guard at all times. Now we can sleep soundly for, out of frozen fear, his woman stands guard for us, he cannot get past her early infant slave molding process. He is a good tool, now ready to be tied up to the horse at a tender age.
By the time a nigger boy reaches the age of sixteen, he is soundly broken in and ready for a long life of sound and efficient work and the reproduction of a unit of good labor force.
Continually, through the breaking of uncivilized savage niggers, by throwing the nigger female savage into a frozen psychological state of independency, by killing of the protective male image, and by creating a submissive dependent mind in the nigger male savage, we have created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever, unless a phenomenon occurs and re-shifts the position of the male and female savages. We show what we mean by example. Take the case of low economic slave units and examine them closely.
We breed two nigger males with two nigger females. Then we take the nigger males away from them and keep them moving and working. Say the one nigger female bears another nigger female and the other bears a nigger male. Both nigger females, being without influence of the nigger male image, frozen with an independent psychology, will raise their offspring into reverse positions. The one with the female offspring will teach her to be like herself, independent and negotiable (we negotiate with her, through her, by her, and negotiate at her will). The one with the nigger male offspring, she being frozen with a subconscious fear for his life, will raise him to be mentally dependent and weak, but physically strong, in other words, body over mind. Now, in a few years when these two offspring become fertile for early reproduction, we will mate and breed them and continue the cycle. That is good, sound, and long range comprehensive planning.
Earlier we talked about the non-economic good of the horse and the nigger in their wild or natural state; we talked about the principle of breaking and tying them together of the savage and her offspring for the orderly future planning; then, more recently we stated that by reversing the positions of male and female savages we had created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever, unless a phenomenon occurred and re-shifted the positions of the male and female savages.
Our experts warned us about the possibility of this phenomenon occurring, for they say that the mind has a strong drive to correct and re-correct itself over a period of time if it can touch some substantial original historical base; and they advised us that the best way to deal with this phenomenon is to shave off the brute’s mental history and create a multiplicity of phenomenon of illusions, so that each illusion will twirl in its own orbit, something similar to floating balls in a vacuum.
This creation of a multiplicity of phenomena of illusions entails the principles of crossbreeding division of labor, the results of which is the severance of the points of the original beginnings for each sphere illusion. Since we feel that the subject matter may get more effective when cross breeding horses and niggers, we shall lay down the following definitional terms for future generations:
• Orbiting cycle means a thing in a given path.
• Axis means upon which or around which a body turns.
• Phenomenon means something beyond ordinary conception that inspires awe and wonder.
• Multiplicity means a great number.
• Sphere means globe.
• Cross-breeding a horse means taking a horse and breeding it with an ass and you get a dumb backwards ass longhead mule that is not reproductive and nonproductive by itself.
• Cross-breeding niggers means taking so many drops of good white blood and putting them into as many nigger woman as possible, varying the drops by the various tones that you want, and then letting them breed with each other until the circle of colors appear as you desire.
What this means is this: Put the niggers and the horse in the breeding pot, mix some asses and some good white blood and what do you get? You get a multiplicity of colors of ass backward, unusual niggers, funning, tied to backward ass longhead mules, the one productive of itself, the other sterile. One is constant and the other dying. We keep the nigger constant for we may replace the mule with 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.
Cross-breeding completed, for further severance from their original beginning, we must completely annihilate the mother tongue of both the new nigger and the new mule and institute a new language that involves the new life’s work of both. You know, language is a particular institution. It leads to the heart of a people. The more a foreigner knows about the other country, the more he is able to move through all levels of that society. Therefore, if the foreigner is an enemy of another country, to the extent that he knows the body of the language, to that extent is the country vulnerable to attack or invasion of a foreign culture. For example, you take a slave, if you teach him all about your language, he will know all your secrets, and he is then no more a slave, for you can’t fool him any longer, and being a fool is one of the basic ingredients of and incidents to the maintenance of the slavery system.
For example, if you told a slave that he must perform in getting out “our crops” and he knows the language well, he would know that “our crops” didn’t mean “our” crops and the slavery system would break down, for he would relate on the basis of what “our crops” really meant. So you have to be careful in setting up the new language for the slaves would soon be in your house, talking to you as “man to man” and that is a death to our economic system. In addition, the definition of words or terms is only a minute part of the process. Values are created and transported by communication through the body of the language to connect them from orderly working in the society. A total society has many interconnected value systems. All these values in the society have bridges of language to connect them for orderly working in the society. But for these language bridges, these many value systems would clash and cause internal strife or civil war, the degree of the conflict being determined by the magnitude of issues or relative opposing strength in whatever form. For example, if you put a slave in a hog pen and train him to live there and incorporate him to value it as a way of life completely, the biggest problem you would have out of him is that he would worry you about provisions to keep the hog pen clean, or partially clean or he might not worry you at all. On the other hand, if you put this same slave in the same hog pen and make a slip and incorporate something in his language whereby he comes to value a house more than he does a hog pen, you got a problem. He will soon be in your house.
Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control, use them. Have your wives and children use them. Never miss an opportunity. My plan is guaranteed, and the good thing about this plan is that if used intensely for one year, the slaves themselves will remain perpetually distrustful.
