What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 43 in a series – “These negro-buyers were very offensive to the genteel southern Christian public.”

September 6th, 2019

“These negro-buyers were very offensive to the genteel southern Christian public. They were looked upon in respectable Maryland society as necessary but detestable characters. As a class, they were hardened ruffians, made such by nature and by occupation. Yes, they were the legitimate fruit of slavery, and were second in villainy only to the slaveholders themselves who made such a class possible. They were mere hucksters of the slave produce of Maryland and Virginia— coarse, cruel, and swaggering bullies, whose very breathing was of blasphemy and blood.”

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

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