What I’m Reading: He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.

July 26th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


Why I'm Reading: He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.

“They prefer to whip those who were the most easily whipped. The doctrine that submission to violence is the best cure for violence did not hold good as between slaves and overseers. He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.”

From Life and Times of Frederick Douglass: (An African American Heritage Book)
